Little Miss H loves Shopkins.
She first became interested in them after watching a number of YouTube videos of the toys being opened and played with. It is amazing how much enjoyment a three-year old can get from watching someone open a toy!
She then moved on to watching the Shopkins animated webisodes which can be found on the Shopkins YouTube channel. If we let her then she would be very happy to watch these webisodes for hours.
So when Universal contacted me and asked if we wanted to review SHOPKINS: CHEF CLUB, the first ever film to include the characters from Shopville, I knew that my answer had to be yes.read more
“A rainbow baby is a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss. In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better. The rainbow is more appreciated having just experienced the storm in comparison.” Quotation taken from the Kicks Count website.
Four years ago, I had never heard of the term rainbow baby.
Now in October 2016, we have two beautiful rainbow babies. And they brighten our world.read more
It is traditional in these circumstances to say I am sorry for your loss.
But those words seem empty and insulting. They imply that you have been careless and misplaced something valuable… a wallet, your keys, your phone.
Those words don’t convey that your world has come crashing down.
They don’t show that your heart is splintering into pieces.
They don’t speak of the shattering sobs that run through your whole body late at night.
They don’t tell of the emptiness that often manifests as a physical pain in your belly and in your heart.read more
October is one of my favourite months of the year.
The skies are blue but the weather is cooler and there is an autumnal chill in the air. The leaves have started turning and falling in piles perfect for collecting and kicking. Yet, the woods behind our house are still dappled with green.
My sandals have been packed away and the boots are out. It is too cold to go outside without a jacket but the winter coats, hats, gloves and scarfs are yet to make an appearance.
Christmas is around the corner. However, there are still 79 days to go. Plenty of time to buy presents, write cards and fill the house with festive cheer.
October is a fabulous month. And we have a lot going on. So once again I am joining in with the gorgeous Beth at Twinderelmo with my October bucket list.read more
I fell in love with baby wearing when Little Miss H was six months old and I bought my first wrap. I soon became obsessed but I was sad that I hadn’t known about the benefits of baby wearing earlier.
As my pregnancy with Little Mister H progressed I became more and more excited by the idea of wearing a newborn. I couldn’t wait to have our little bundle of squishiness all wrapped up next to me.
Then a few months before Little Mister H was born I was contacted by the baby wearing experts We Made Me. I was thrilled that they wanted to work with me to promote the amazing benefits of carrying your child in a sling, wrap or carrier. And I was looking forward to trying their fabulous products; the Wuti Wrap, the Pao Carrier and the Soohu Sling.read more
