Back to School Giveaway with Spearmark

Back to School Giveaway with Spearmark

Wow, I can hardly believe that September is here! It’s a busy month for us with hubby’s birthday, Autumn’s 2nd birthday and an anniversary. We’re also going to be Godparents later this month and I have a blogging conference to attend. Everything is beginning to feel very autumnal now – and of course the kids are back to school! We’ve been testing out some of Spearmark’s back to school range, including a Locksy Ultraclip lunch box. Here I explain more and give you the chance to win some of the range! View Post

Win a Paladone & Good Bubble bath time fun bundle!

Win a Paladone & Good Bubble bath time fun bundle!

Do your kids enjoy bath time? Bath time with Autumn is one of my favourite ways to spend quality time with her. She’s just always so happy splashing around in the bath and playing with her bath toys. She gets so excited!

I’m excited to say that two fantastic companies are giving you the opportunity to make bath time just as fun with your children too! On the other hand, if your children don’t like bath time, these may help to encourage them. Please take the time to get to know Paladone and Good Bubble a little better, don’t just scroll past!

When should you first take baby to the dentist? (+WIN)

When should you first take baby to the dentist? (+WIN)

So, when should you take your child to the dentist for the first time? There seems to be a lot of misinformation around about when you should take your baby for their first check up. Shortly before Autumn turned 6 months old, I went to a class at one of our local Children’s Centres. As well as learning about weaning, we learnt about dental care too. It turns out that where I’m based in Medway there’s a scheme where babies are given a Medway Smiles passport. It’s encouraged that they first go to the dentist between 6 and 8 months old.

Here’s some more information how to look after your baby’s precious teeth as well as a giveaway! The prizes you’re in with a chance to win will help you to protect those pearly whites.

I quite like Mondays (a post about comping)

I quite like Mondays (a post about comping)

“I don’t like Mondays”, sang Bob Geldof in the 1979 The Boomtown Rats song of the same title. Most people would agree with him!

So why do I quite like Mondays?

Well, I’m on maternity leave at the moment, otherwise I’d like Mondays decidedly less. Every other Monday I can get Autumn weighed at clinic, which hasn’t lost its excitement yet – I love seeing how much my little milk monster has grown.
