Review: Lighthouse Clothing Abigail Coat

I am someone who really feels the cold. As such, by the time we get to spring I’m usually pretty miserable and just can’t wait for summer! Thank goodness we’ve had some beautifully warm spring days recently (although, typically,  I’ve had norovirus or Covid for most of the nicer weather we’ve had so far).

I’ve used cloth nappies on both Autumn and Reuben, have used reusable water bottles for years and have eco-friendly cork encased deodorant. However, cuddly toys aren’t something that have crossed my mind too often. Eco Plush collection toys are an eco-conscious choice which are made from 100% recycled materials! Let’s take a closer look…

Easter trail and activities at Hever Castle

Ad – Gifted¦ Hever Castle just outside Edenbridge is one of our favourite places to explore as a family. It always looks beautiful and feels magical, no matter what season it is or what the weather is like. We hadn’t been in almost a year and were delighted to be invited back to put their children’s Easter trail and activities to the test! These run until 18th April, so they’ll be on for the rest of the school holidays too.
