Review: Shaken Udder YogOaty Pouches

Review: Shaken Udder YogOaty Pouches

I’ve been aware of Shaken Udder milkshakes for quite some time. Their cartoon cows and bold packaging make them difficult to miss when I’m in the refrigerated section of the supermarket! Recently, they’ve launched YogOaty pouches. These are tasty pouches you can take out with you for a snack, pop in lunchboxes or have as part of breakfast.

Autumn has been a good little tester as always. As you’ve seen on the blog this week, she loves trying bath time things, but food is her most favourite thing to try! She’s tried out all three flavours over the last few weeks either as a snack or as part of her breakfast. I like how small they are to take out with me to play groups or the library. View Post

6 Gift Ideas for Children, Christmas 2017

We’re getting closer and closer to Christmas. The weeks just seem to be flying by now! It’s such a magical time when you are a child, although I think some of that magic returns when you have a child yourself. Here are some lovely gift ideas for the children you’re buying for this year.

If you’re looking for gifts for babies and toddlers, it may be worth taking a look at The Best Christmas Gifts for 0-2 year olds as you’ll find that more tailored. View Post

Autumn’s favourite books, autumn 2017

Autumn’s favourite books, autumn 2017

It’s been absolutely ages since I last wrote about Autumn’s favourite books. She still absolutely adores books, so much so that a few months ago I bought a small bookshelf for our living room. As it’s at such a low height, she can get her books herself and look through them independently or ask us to read them. Although her vocabulary obviously doesn’t extend that far, being 13 months old, she waves the book at one of us and makes a noise! Although she looks at all of them, she has some definite favourites at the moment. View Post

This time last year

This time last year

This time last year, I was facing the toughest experience of my life. Sometimes it still amazes me that I got through it, but I did. I feel like I’m a completely different person to the one I was before Autumn fell ill and had her operation with Dr. Zahid Mukhtar. I feel different and I look at life somewhat differently. Hopefully one day I might be a stronger person for it all.

I’m certainly stronger than I was this time last year, but I don’t feel completely healed yet. View Post
