One of the things on my Autumn Bucket List was to go Pumpkin Picking and today on a perfectly gloomy Autumn day we headed off to Sopley Farm to do so. This is mostly going to be me just photo spamming you all with some Autumnal photos of Amelia stomping in puddles and demanding which pumpkin she wanted picking next. Sopley farm is just on the edge of the New Forest in Christchurch and has a tonne of differen
Today I’m going to share with you a great local place for your phone/tablet repairs and much more- Bitznfix Poole. Cracking a phone screen or in my case shattering a phone screen is honestly one of the most annoying things. Either you drop it and the dreaded moment when you turn it over to see if it’s broken or not or if your like me sitting on it in soft play and shattering it. But hey lets not dw
As I’m sure you all know we are huge fans of the craft supplies from Baker Ross and recently posted our Autumn Crafts with Baker Ross and today I’m going to share with you our Halloween crafts. First up is these Polystyrene Pumpkins. After the success of Amelia being able to paint the ceramic hedgehogs I knew she would love this. Instead of just painting paper it was really nice for her to hav

I’ve chatted a lot on this blog about Amelia’s sleep and how good it used to be then how bad it was and then how good it was again followed by how bad it was again so I’m back with another sleep update and to share how we’ve been getting on with the The Gro Clock. I was quite dubious about using the clock, I’ve heard so many amazing things about it but just wasn’t sure how
This blog post has rolled around again for the month. We are back again for Mummy & Me where I share with you my favourite photos of myself and Amelia from the month. Honestly I know I say it every month but where does the time go?! To be honest for the first time there really weren’t that many photos of myself and Amelia to choose from. Most photos this month have been of Amelia on her own so here are ju
Today I’m sharing with you my new bedroom ideas featuring the the Bruno Mattress. After decorating Amelia’s bedroom I made some subtle changes to mine with some new bedding and a couple of decorative pieces but recently I’ve been thinking about a little bedroom makeover and how I would go about it. The biggest change would definitely be a new mattress. Mine, although comfy could do with an up
As a Miffy Mum I have some super exciting news to share with you all today and a fun competition that I think lots of you will like… Miffy is coming to a television near you very soon and by very soon I mean next week! Miffy’s Adventures: Big and Small launches on Tiny Pop on 2nd October 2015 at 7pm and will be 7 minute long episodes which see Miffy and her friends exploring the exciting world around
I’ve got the first part of my Autumn Playdough recipes to share with you today. Easy homemade playdough with some Autumnal scents and some fun ways to make Playdough platters! Amelia loves these and it brings a bit more to it than just using generic playdough tools and helps bring a theme into the craft. Your playdough recipe is exactly the same as normal playdough- 2 Cups Flour 1 Cup Salt 2 Tablespoons Sun
Following on from yesterday’s blog post sharing with you my Autumn Bucket List I’m getting right on it with some Autumn crafts for you. We were super lucky to get some amazing bits from Baker Ross who have a great selection of craft supplies but I especially love all the seasonal/holiday themed packs! When I first looked at these Ceramic Hedgehog’s I didn’t think they would be the bes
The arrival of Autumn is my second favourite season. I love summer but I also really don’t mind Autumn. Cozy jumpers, hot chocolate and crunchy leaves make me very excited for all the antics we can get up to this Autumn! So I’m going to share with you my Autumn bucket list of things I want to do in the rest of September and October before it is way too cold and dark to even leave the house and just spe
These days I always tend to opt in for the staying in option versus the going out so creating the perfect movie night makes staying in so fun. Movie nights with Amelia aren’t quite a thing yet, we tend to sometimes pop a film on after dinner before bedtime but when she’s a little older these will be my essentials for a family movie night. Choice of film- I can imagine if Amelia is watching it will mos
I love the calmness in this photo and really makes me feel like Autumn is on its way! Again I have a load more photos from this little outing that you can see here.
Today I’m going to share with you 10 activities you can do with masking tape. These were all super easy to do and could be adapted for older children to do as well! 1. Hopscotch. All you need to do for this one is stick the tape down in whatever formation you want and add some numbers to the sections. I just cut mine out of some foam and masking taped them down so they stayed in place. Amelia can’t ho
This weekend I was super lucky to be invited on-board Princess Cruises Royal Princess to have a little tour of the ship, learn some more about the food and enjoy a delicious lunch! I’ve never been on a cruise ship before so for me this was such an experience to not only see inside but to go behind the scenes and really experience a foodie day on the Royal Princess. We were shown the galley of one of the r
The minute Amelia wakes up she asks to “feed ducks” she is desperate to go and do it. We did it once a few weeks back and since then she hasn’t stopped talking about it. We’ve had to do it pretty much every single day as it’s one of the first phrases Amelia has started to say and she says it on repeat until it happens. She is also of that age when you promise something you have to do i
Last month when I was putting together a gift guide for a 2 year old you will remember I included this Disney Princess Musical Dancing Palace and a set of the princesses to go with it. Today I’m going to share with you our thoughts on it after playing with it for a month! Fisher Price Little People Disney Princess Musical Dancing Palace As many of you know Amelia isn’t the girliest of little girls s
It was so tough to choose just one of these photos from the other night but this is probably my favourite. You can check all the others out here. Like this:Like Loading...
Once you’ve had your baby and the initial influx of visitors wanting newborn snuggles has died down the day to day life of looking after a newborn can be pretty mundane. It tends to involve a lot of sleep none of which is at night and a lot of feeding and nappy changes all of which is at night! Being a Mum/parent is an amazingly rewarding job but it’s a very lonely job to begin with. Yes your baby will
I know it’s only the 1st of September but it totally feels like the end of Summer when August is over. The weather recently has been crazy with sunshine one minute and storms the next so now it’s September I feel it’s fully acceptable to embrace Autumn! Today just felt like the last summer day; it was a sunny beach morning and a park afternoon feeding the ducks and riding the little train. After d
Another month has flown by and its that time when I share my favourite photos of myself and Amelia from the month. It’s the month that my baby turned two so it had to include a couple of birthday photos. This one is a new favourite of mine; she was so cuddly on her birthday and on a day that felt like she was growing up all she wanted was to cuddle and I loved it! Other than Amelia’s birthday August
