Let’s play dress up! With Pretend To Bee

My daughter’s preschool did not require them to dress up for World Book Day.  I asked, and they said ‘you have way too much on your plate already’, which is kind of nice really. I do have a lot on my metaphorical plate. Not my real one because the kids …

Pulp Wine: A subscription box I can really get behind

It finally happened. I have been sent the ultimate product to review: Wine.  You might be aware that I’m a fan of wine. A wine enthusiast, if you will. If you hadn’t realised this then I can only assume that this is your first visit to this blog. Perhaps you’ve …

Three easy peasy family recipes with Dolmio

The £2 challenge with Zamcog and Voucherbox

Could you feed your family for a day for £2 a head? My initial thought was that, no, there is no way I could do that. To feed everyone for £8 a day, even thought two are not quite full sized yet, sounded impossible. These kids eat a lot, but they are …

Our garden office (part deux) with Posterlounge

Remember back in December, when we had our garden office built? No? Let me jog your memory. Despite the fact it’s bitterly cold outside at the moment we have been making regular use of it; Doug (daddy; seems a bit weird to refer to him as that out of context …
