ChewyMoon healthy snacks for children – review and giveaway

My children have always been quite good eaters. With a few exceptions, they tend to eat whatever I put in front of them at dinner time. In fact the only time they really struggle is when they’ve been eating sweets and junk food between meals. So there’s no problem then. Don’t feed them between meals and everything will be fine. Wrong! The snack dilemma The issue I have is that by mid afternoon when Lia gets up from a nap and Libby finishes school, they’re hungry. They’re also tired, we usually have somewhere else to go before home and it’s a…

Art supplies for children from Colour&Fun – review & giveaway

Children’s art supplies are a delicate subject when you have two children with a slight age gap. Felt tip pens have always caused arguments in our house. Libby is old enough to use them and loves to draw and colour in. Lia on the other hand, just can’t quite master them. We had an incident a few months back where the end of the pen ended up in her mouth, which made her sick. And even on a good day, more pen ends up on her than on the paper. And don’t get me started on the mess she makes…

12 Days of Plenty Riddle Competition

This is a collaborative post. It’s an annual tradition that our extended family all get together at my dad’s house between Christmas and New Year. This suits me down to the ground because dad’s only across the road from me so it’s a great excuse to have a glass of wine and chat to family members I might not have seen all year. The riddles Every year, we all start getting comfortably tipsy and then my aunty brings out some pieces of paper. It’s all to do with a quiz she does at work involving riddles and brain teasers. We…

Beer 52 Craft Beer Club Review and Discount Code

My husband is a nightmare to buy for at Christmas. I mentioned recently that he had his own unique ‘style’ when it comes to clothes. Not a style I’d care to emulate when I’m buying gifts. So I buy him books that he doesn’t read, experiences that he never uses or general stuff that he doesn’t need. So when I discovered Beer 52 craft beer club I realised this was the perfect gift. To hear more about Beer 52, read on! If you’re just here for the discount code (you can’t beat cheap beer after all) use the code PLUTONIUM10 for £10 off.…

Yellodoor Child’s First Aid Kit Review and Giveaway

Last week when I was running with Bubbles, she got spooked by a car and bolted in front of me. We were running on tarmac that was old and bumpy and I ended up ripping quite a significant amount of skin off my hands and knees. The only first aid items I had available were the ones I’d used for my ultramarathon, which made me realise that I really needed to get a child’s first aid kit. The Yellodoor Child’s First Aid Kit Had it been one of the girls that had got hurt, I would have felt terrible about being…
