An Afternoon of Fun at Hamleys with Lamaze

When Boo was a baby I was really particular about what toys she had, in fact when I say particular what I mean is that 90% of her toys were Lamaze, so when they invited us to Hamleys this afternoon for a storytelling session with Milkshake presenter Jen Pringle, we were thrilled to get a […]

Gym Class Hero with Lycra and Leggings

You’ve all read about #operationyummymummy – in fact they’re some of your favourite posts, with most of the focus being on running. However after the British 10K last July I’ve been suffering on and off (although mostly on) with a heel injury which just won’t go. My first love has always been running but I’ve […]

Boo and the Selfie

If you’d asked me ten years ago what a selfie was I’d of probably giggled (forgive me I was a teenager) and said it sounded like something a boy did! Fast forward a decade and we all know what it is, heck I even posed for one with my Mum yesterday as we tested out […]

Shrek The Musical

Shrek The Musical DVD Review

The good thing about Winter is the long evenings that were made for family movie time; Boo loves singing along and dancing (I’m often her unwilling dancing assistant!) so when the opportunity came to see what we thought of Shrek the Musical on dvd I was excited to see how Boo would take to a […]

New Year’s resolution: slash your energy bills!

At the end of 2013 many of the UK’s leading energy providers hiked their energy prices by up to 10%. This was an extremely unwelcome move for many households, leading to spiralling costs just as winter arrived.

Christmas Shopping: Online Vs Hitting The Shops

Ok I’ll admit it, I’m feeling rather smug – apart from a handful of presents I’ve pretty much done all my Christmas shopping. Apart from the odd last minute stocking filler that’s caught my eye, Boo’s been done for over a month now. I’m really organized when it comes to birthdays and Christmas as past […]

The Little White Company – A/W 13

Way back at the beginning of Autumn me and Boo went along to The Little White Company store on Marylebone High Street for an exclusive Blogger evening of shopping and biscuits for the little ones.

There was an action packed day on offer to families with activities including: Pudsey Bear’s picnic, treasure hunt, […]
