Aldi Baby & Toddler Event – put this in your diary!

Okay, ‘fess up. Who else loves a good Aldi Baby and Toddler Event? I think I’ve only missed one since I found out I was pregnant with Autumn. I’d been planning to go, but I was kind of busy giving birth that morning!

The next one is tomorrow, Thursday 17th August 2017, so don’t miss out! There are lots of brilliant specialbuys for little ones, including some that I haven’t seen in my 18 months or so of attending them.

Harry & Rose Hair and Body Wash

Harry & Rose Hair and Body Wash

If there’s something I like doing, it’s helping to support local businesses. I met Harry & Rose at The Baby Show in Birmingham, but was delighted to find out they’re from Kent. At The Baby Show, I bought some of their Baby Nappy Spray. I love it as it’s so gentle, smells pleasant and you don’t have to rub it into your baby’s bottom. This is much easier now that Autumn’s on the move! It seems to have helped. We also tried some of their Baby Soft Lotion, which I was also impressed with.

When the opportunity arose to try Harry & Rose Hair – Body Wash, I was eager to give it a try. View Post

10 tips to save money at the supermarket

10 tips to save money at the supermarket

A few years ago at the age of 20, my then fiancé, now husband, and I were saving money for a deposit for our first house. This led me to think of various ways of saving money, including when shopping in the supermarket. This continued in the first year of owning our house as at that point our combined wages were only just enough to pay the mortgage and bills, until I got another job which made things a lot more comfortable for us. However, now that I’m on maternity leave, I am having to watch the pennies again. Here are my top tips for saving money when shopping in supermarkets! View Post

A letter to my daughter at 7 months old

A letter to my daughter at 7 months old

Dear Autumn,

I say this every month, but time is going much too fast! It seems barely any time has passed since I was writing a letter to you at 6 months old! You’re so big now, it hurts my back to carry you. Nanny found my book from when I was a baby and you weigh around 3lbs more than I did when I was your age!

What a good girl. When you came out of hospital after being seriously ill, I kept telling you to drink your milk. I told you that it would make you grow big and strong! Here we are almost half a year later and you’re doing so well. View Post
