Sienna's words #3

'Don't look at me Mummy, I'm just doing stuff' ('stuff' is emptying the toy box.. that I asked her not to do) ;)


'I made you a coffee with two teabags Mummy'


Si: 'Ouch'
Me : 'What's the matter?'
Si: 'I hurt my ankle.. young lady, kiss it better please'


'Mummy, I'm going out on Saturday, with Nanny & Grampy, across the lakes' (Teenager already?!)


Me: 'Come here please Bugs'
Si: 'Why do you call me bugs?'
Me: 'Because that's the nickname I use for you'
Si: 'Oh....but I'm not Nick?!' (this one made me LOL out loud!)

How does your garden grow

We recently received a 'surprise' bag of bulbs to plant in the garden and watch grow. You might know Sienna is a big fan of the egg surprise craze at the moment and also loves to be outside, so this project seemed perfect for her!

The project is in collaboration with Spalding bulb, who want to encourage kids to have more interest in gardening. The way the project works should encourage a sense of responsibility and pride knowing they have helped plant them and helped something grow. 

Unique wedding albums

Your wedding album is one of the places you’ll return to in order to relive the memories and the feelings of your big day, from the small details such as what colour your nails were painted to the first glimpse of one another as you walked down the aisle. It’s a place that tells a magical important story and one which you will want to share with everyone. Of course as with all things in our modern world, wedding albums have come a long way, and there is now so much more you can then just stick them in an album. So grab a cup of tea and discover how you can make your ever lasting memories just as unique as your big day!

Ultimate toddler products & apps!

I'm forever trying out products designed to help make my life easier and so I thought I'd do a post on our ultimate toddler products.. the products we really couldn't live without, the products that really do help make my life that little bit easier and the products we use the most.

Wooden highchair

Top toddler products

The best thing we ever did was get rid of our Graco highchair in favour for a wooden one. Our Graco one we had for about 6 months, if that and it was filthy. No matter how much I scrubbed, it was still left with that orange tinge from Sienna's favourite meal, spag bol. Our wooden highchair still looks brand new over a year on, it's so easy to clean, just a few sprays of disinfectant, give it a wipe and voila. No matter what Sienna gets up to in it, I don't dread cleaning it (as much).. Play-doh, painting, eating.. go for it!

Britax proudly sponsors the bliss buggy push for the 3rd year running!


Britax, the leader in child mobility who enable family freedom, is proud to announce it will once again be sponsoring the Bliss Buggy Push, a series of family-friendly 5km buggy walks or runs across the UK, designed to help raise money for Bliss, the special care baby charity.

This is the third year that Britax will sponsor the charity initiative, and following the success of last year’s 40 events, organisers say the 2015 fundraiser has the potential to be the biggest one yet.

Bliss is once again encouraging people across the country to organise a Buggy Push at a park near them to raise money to help premature and sick babies as well as their families. One in every nine babies is born premature or sick - that is around 80,000 babies every year.

Partnering with Miffy, the iconic children’s character, the headline London Buggy Push is taking place on 13 June to celebrate Miffy’s 60th birthday. Alongside sponsorship of the event, Britax will also be offering families the chance to win one of its stylish and award winning Britax Affinity pushchairs. The three highest fundraisers who take part in the main events at either London, Manchester, Leeds and Edinburgh will be able to select a light-weight Affinity in their preferred choice of colour and take home the matching Cosytoes and Changing Bag - the perfect prize for any mums on the go looking to make a fashion statement.

Amy Voller, Brand Director EMEA from Britax comments, “As a brand devoted to helping families find their freedom, we are delighted to once again be working with Bliss. Through this partnership we can not only encourage parents to get out and about with their little ones, we can also raise awareness for a fantastic cause that is very close to our hearts. We are behind every single family that choses to take part – best of luck!”
