Creaturepedia Book Review

We were recently sent a copy of Creaturepedia from Mumsnet Book Club.

When the book arrived I was surprised at the quality of it, it’s amazing. It is large and very heavy with the title embossed into the hard cover. Creaturepedia has just over 200 fully illustrated pages containing over 600 animals. The animals are split into 42 groups such as ‘The poisonous’, ‘The gladiators’, ‘The solitary’ and ‘The endangered’.

Scott asked what endangered meant and when I explained he asked Keep reading…

The Things We Can't Go Out Without

Before I had children I very rarely used a bag. Instead I’d just shove my cards, keys, phone and money into my jean pocket and off I’d go – easy!
Then I had a baby and my changing bag took over and stepping outside became something that resembled a military operation. I’d need nappies, wipes, creams, millions of spare clothes, bottles, ready made milk cartons or milk powder pots that had been carefully measured out, infacol, calpol, dummies, baby toys, Milton Keep reading…

The True Value Of A Mum

Today me and the kids should have been giving presents and cards, maybe having a party or going for a meal out. But we’re not. Instead we’re taking a trip to the graveyard to lay flowers in lieu of those gifts and cards. Today would have been my Mum’s 70th Birthday.

She’s been gone for just over six years now but I still miss her so much. She was the woman I could tell anything to, who would generally take my side over Keep reading…

My Back To School Wishlist #GettingCoolForSchool

It’s that time of year where everyone is looking forward to the summer holidays and no more school – ok, that’s probably what the kids are all looking forward to more! For me though it’s a mixed bag. I’m looking forward to having my little ones for the summer and being able to relax together and have some fun. I’m also a little sad as I know that after this summer both of them will be at school.

Scott is moving Keep reading…

Attitude and A&E

Scott’s had a bit of a mixed week. Last week he was asking me if I could forget to take him to school as he didn’t want to go in and take part in the Father’s Day assembly they were doing. He told me that he hadn’t had to take part in the preparations and had been allowed to play but that the other children were then asking him questions about why he doesn’t have a daddy.  He’d had nightmares Keep reading…

Wicked Uncle Online Gift Shop

Do you ever get a little stressed when trying to choose presents for someone else’s child …or even your own for that matter?! I do. Sometimes I take the easy way out and ask what they want, but often feel it’s a bit of a cop-out and that I should put a bit of effort into it. After all, I may just find something a little bit cool that they never even knew existed until they got it.

This time of Keep reading…
