Taking Part In The ‘No Morning Coffee Challenge’ With Berocca

It’s pretty well-known that having a baby is knackering. I don’t think anyone goes into parenthood without an inclination that their sleep will be majorly impacted. What people don’t tell you though is that this doesn’t get any better as your kid gets older. Sorry to ruin any hope for you newbie parents. Even though Toddler […]

Raising The Steaks With Iceland’s Churrasco BBQ Meat Range

With summer approaching, I’m already salivating at the prospect of BBQ after BBQ after BBQ – the amount of times I’ve had to wipe my chin already is ridiculous. I know it’s a proper British cliché, but I love those days when the sun is out, there’s meat on the grill and you’re hanging out with […]

Summary: How Does Our Garden Grow? #SowAndGrowUK

Over the last few months, I’ve been involved in the Sow And Grow campaign (#SowAndGrowUK) with innocent and GIY (Grow It Yourself). This has been a national project to encourage kids to grow their own veg to help them better understand where their food comes from. By growing it themselves, ‘food empathy’ is created, which means […]

A Beginner’s Guide To The Confusing World Of Toddler Playdates

When your kid reaches the age of two, it’s time to start embracing toddler playdates. This isn’t always as easy as you might think. Sure, you might be willing, but where do you start? What are the rules? What’s the social etiquette? How does the whole thing work? That was never taught in your NCT […]

Visiting Innocent Fruit Towers and #SowAndGrowUK Update

As you may remember, I’m currently working with drink aficionados, innocent, and veg growing champions, GIY (Grow It Yourself), to promote the Sow And Grow campaign (#SowAndGrowUK). This is a pretty cool project which is all about getting kids to grow their own fruit and veg. The idea behind it being to educate children in where […]

Doggy Dental Care: Looking After Your Dog’s Teeth

He may not take centre stage on the blog too often, but Dax is a pretty important part of the family. Since getting him as a puppy 3.5 years ago, it’s hard to think of life without him. I’m the first to admit that ‘I’m not really an animal person’, but there’s something about his stupidly long […]

7 Toddler-Friendly Things To Do On Holiday In Copenhagen

It feels like ages ago now, but last September we had a short European city break to Copenhagen. I’ve been meaning to write about the holiday for a while as we had a great time and found it to be a very toddler-friendly place, however, life and general laziness got in the way. Typical. So eight […]

Saving For Toddler L’s Financial Future

Here’s some info for you – kids aren’t cheap! I’ve not worked out what 2.5 years of having a daughter has cost us financially (only mentally and physically), but I imagine it’s an eye-watering amount. As an example, purely doing two days at nursery for the last six months has set us back over £3,000. Then, when […]

Update: How Does Our Garden Grow? #SowAndGrowUK

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about our involvement in innocent and GIY’s (Grow It Yourself) Sow And Grow campaign. Working with thousands of schools across the UK, the aim is to encourage kids to grow their own fruit and veg in the classroom so that they better understand where their food comes from. […]
