B is For Beautiful

"B is for Beautiful" Each morning I wake up to my two beautiful little girls. Either they are moaning for me to get up, jumping on me or arguing. But I am lucky. I mean, I have two happy and healthy little girls. What more do I want? Every single morning we have the exact same routine.

Elliw's Speech Development and School Update

Elliw started part-time school 2nd of September. Although she has been attending play school for the past year and a half it was still emotional watching her walk into the big school on the first day in her school uniform. From a young age we noticed Elliw's development was behind, especially …

Kerrygold 'A Tale From The Meadow' Book

Last year I reviewed some Kerrygold butter and it has always been one of my favourites. I recently received a surprise parcel through the post one day. I had no idea I was going to be sent this parcel by Kerrygold so I was overly pleased. I love surprises! In the box was a new book called 'The…

Watching You Grow | Mia

My eldest daughter Mia will be 6 years old at the start of December. I honestly can not believe it. Watching her play, sing, dance and even having a tantrum makes me a little emotional because only 6 years ago, she couldn't do neither of those things.

She can drive me so mad at times with her…

Preparing For Christmas & Giveaway

I've said it again. The 'C' word. Sorry guys! But we are now (finally) in double figures counting down to Christmas. I can't even explain to you all how excited I am! I am quarter of the way through buying presents and my cupboard is slowly filling up which is getting me even more e…

I'm Glad My Girls Started School At 2.5 Years

When Mia was 5 months old I got a job in a Nursery and I was lucky enough to have Mia come with me. As the 2 years went by and watching Mia grow and make friends within the nursery it got me thinking. I had to quit my job when I had Elliw because I moved and couldn't afford the childcare and b…

The Competition Linky

Quite a few months ago I started to enter competitions. Once I started, I kind of enjoyed but one day I won something. Since then I have been entering as many competitions as I can. I think they are a great way to keep you busy and if you win the prizes they are great to treat yourself or even a p…

I was recently asked if I would like to review some hair accessories by Miss Mane Accessories. I am forever going through bobbles and clips because they either get misplaced or broken. I had a look at Miss Mane's Etsy shop and I noticed how pretty every single clip, bows and bobbles looked. Th…

My Favourite Slimming World Meals

You may have noticed that I have recently started back at my local Slimming World group. After loosing 3 and a half stone by last Christmas, I fell off the wagon when I came back home from Thailand. I gained nearly 2 stone so I decided to take a break and try it at home. I had some good and bad da…

Zoflora Pink Grapefruit Review

I was recently asked if I would like to review Zoflora concentrated disinfectant. If I am 100% with you all, I am not a great 'housewife'. In fact I am a terrible one. There is always a full laundry basket and it would probably take a whole day to tidy the whole house. But when I do give t…

Jumping In Muddy Puddles

 
One day last week I had my usual afternoon school run. It had been a pretty miserable day but luckily it had brightened up by the time I had to leave the house to get Mia. Elliw and I got ourselves ready a little early so we could walk a different way round to school. Elliw wanted her wellies on because she wanted to 'jump in muddy puddles' as she said.
 
So she got her wellies and coat on and I got myself ready and off we went. There were many puddles on our way to get Mia and it was a surprisingly warm and lovely afternoon walk. Very rarely will Elliw just run off herself and play by herself, especially when we are on a walk but this day she wasn't too bad. I had to tell her a few times to let go of my hand and just run. We did a few games on our walk, such as racing, eye spy and of course, jumping in muddy puddles.
 

Our Child-Free Evening

Last Friday me and my partner made last minute plans. Mia was off to her Dad's for the night and we asked my partners parents if they would take Elliw for the night. We both felt very relaxed and decided to go somewhere for food. As we started driving we were forever trying to think were to go…
