#ColourMeMarch with Cheltenham racecourse 13

I have never been to Cheltenham races, even though I live so close to Racecourse. We’ve all heard of Ladies day (which is  on the 11th of March this year), crazy dresses and wild hats. This year though Cheltenham are doing things differently.  The best dressed fillies will be chosen solely via social media.  They are calling this contest #ColourMeMarch and I’ve entered.

Share the love and #SendTheLove 120

As you know it’s Valentine’s day shortly and I want to write about Blokey, almost to him. StressFreePrint wanted bloggers to write open letters to loved ones, so here goes. The poor guy gets a hard time living with me. At times I am extremely annoying to live with, I know I am, I hear myself being horrid and cringe. But it’s too late; the nasty words are already said.

Do you like Bingo?

I do, I know this might give you a mental image of old folks at a retirement home, but it’s not like that. Almost every holiday park we go to I play bingo* in the evenings, just one book usually so around the price of a latte. I’ve never been keen on bingo in arcades, collecting tickets and taking them to a kiosk to cash in about a billion winning tickets for a single Mars bar. Nope! I’ll be honest I have played online bingo and won some, and lost some too.


Jen’s #DreamBed would be…. 1

A couple of years ago we made the mistake of putting our boys in a bunk bed in the box room. Our home isn’t huge and it seemed a great idea to have both Jen and D sleep in the box room, and share D’s older room as a playroom. Sadly as neither truly has their own space they argue like cat and dog over territory! If you’re considering doing similar, don’t. It might be one of the worse home making decisions we ever made. They need their own space, even if one of them gets a box room.


#AfterSchoolChefs – getting back in to a routine 7

After the long summer school holidays it can be tricky to get back in to an “after school routine” again. I will admit I am far from the perfect mum, I am a lazy cook and just want food that is easy. So when BritMums got in touch about #AfterSchoolChefs with Birds Eye frozen foods I was interested. Normally Blokey cooks for me the night before and I just bung it back in the oven to feed the kiddies and me. He’s a great guy really, he irons too (no you can’t borrow him). They want to know about after school routines, well I walk with the hound to the local little school to collect Jen, it is around a mile each way. When we are nearly home Jen often wants to play on the swing that is in a tree. That takes about an hour, when we get in D […]


Jen’s friendly monster 2

This evening Jen drew a monster. He has called him Bob. He is a friendly monster. He has no mouth. Apparently he is kind and cannot eat children  because he has no mouth. So I asked how does he eat and Jen explained “Bob eats by squashing nasty things into his ears like flies and spiders and ants and snails. His ears have tiny teeth doors like on Venus fly plants that eat the bugs.” So he’s friendly and helpful because he’s a cute pest control monster, you don’t need to feed him as he forages under the sofa for spiders, and in the garden for flies.


WIN – Lily’s Kitchen dog food from PetShopBowl 37

Do you have a dog? Well keep reading as you can win them some premium munch right here. Lily’s Kitchen is a range of cat and dog food and treats. Freya had the Bed time biscuits recently and she liked these, I am still unconvinced whether it helped her sleep but she certainly liked getting a biscuit each night after her last garden “pit stop” of the evening. PetShop got in touch and asked if I’d like to giveaway some Lily’s dog food to one of my dog loving readers. So here goes! Lily’s food is not cheap, and this 7.5 KG bag is normally £54.99, but it will be free to one lucky reader. Why we like PetShop, they use recycled cardboard for the deliveries to your door. They have a lot of choice, and some items are on great offers. Delivery is free on orders of over £19.99 […]
