Tube Town – Gingerbread House

The girls were very excited when we were asked if we’d like to test out an inflatable Gingerbread House from Tube Town. Our house and garden aren’t very large so having any kind of playhouse isn’t easy due to lack of storage space. The beauty of this little (or fairly large actually!) house is that...

Mincemeat

I love mincemeat and anything you can make with it, and because of this I was very pleased when Sainsbury’s asked if I would like to try some of their Taste the Difference Mincemeat. If I have time, I usually like to make my own because I can add what I like and leave out anything...

Bake-a-boo

  There’s nothing I love better on a cold evening than snuggling down with a cookery book, flicking through and planning what I’m going to cook and bake. This time of year is the best because Christmas provides the perfect opportunity to bake and try out some new recipes. So I was delighted to be...

HEXBUGs

I have to admit that when we were asked if we’d like to test out and review some HEXBUG Nanos I wasn’t really sure if the girls would be interested. But I showed Grace a video about them and she insisted she did want to try them out. It turns out it was a very...

Home Bake

I love cookery books, especially anything to do with baking and cake decorating, so much so that I had to have two extra shelves put up in the kitchen to house them all! So I was very excited when I asked if I’d like to review a copy of Home Bake by Eric Lanlard. I’m...

MuTu System update

You may have seen from my post a few weeks ago that I was chosen as one of the mummies to try out the MuTu System – a combination of exercises and healthy eating to combat my ‘Mummy Tummy’. So I thought I’d give you a little update on how I’m doing. The first 2 weeks I...

My Friendly Lunchbox

As it is half term this week, I have got some time off from making lunch boxes, but last week Grace tested out some goodies from My Friendly Lunchbox. She takes a lunch box most days and I am fed up keep throwing away sandwich bags and various other wrappings, which are a waste of...

Gingerbread men and Halloween cookies

No matter which crafts the girls and I try, you can always be sure that some kind of baking or cake decorating will feature regularly. So we were all delighted when Silver Spoon sent us a bag of goodies to try out. We had squeezy icing tubes, food colours, jelly drops and mini chocolate beans...

Witch Craft

I’m sure it hasn’t escaped your attention that there is nothing I like better than a good bit of crafting and cooking, and what better time for crafty activities than Halloween?! So I was really excited to receive a review copy of this book – Witch Craft, compiled by Margaret McGuire and Alicia Kachmar. It...

MuTu System – Week 1

Last week I was lucky to be chosen, along with 4 other bloggers, to try out the new MuTu system, created by the lovely Wendy Powell from No More Excuses. I am so excited to have this opportunity as my weight, and in particular my mummy tummy, have been an issue for quite a long...

Giveaway – Playskool Lullaby Gloworm

A few days ago I reviewed a Playskool Lullaby Gloworm and it was a big hit with all of us, especially Faith. The lovely people at Playskool have now offered to send a Lullaby Gloworm to one lucky reader – what a great Christmas present that would make! All you have to do to enter...

Playskool Lullaby Gloworm

You may have read earlier on in the year how we struggle with Faith at bedtime and although she’s a little better now, we still have a few problems getting her to go to sleep. So I was very interested when I was asked if I’d like to review a Lullaby Gloworm from Playskool. When...
