Braun No Touch NTF 3000 Review

Braun No Touch NTF 3000 Review

When I was sent the information on the Braun No Touch thermometer I thought it would definitely be a simpler way to take H’s temperature when he is poorly. He cannot stand having thermometers in his ears and with all the wriggling and wondering whether it’s not in enough or in too far, I am never sure that the temperature is accurate. As the thermometer made its way to me,…

A Bad Month

A Bad Month

With H’s recent sleep deprivation tactics, the hub and I thought we had it bad and whinged a fair bit. And perhaps we whinged a little about other things going on in our little world too. You know the way you do when you think you have it bad? Then this past weekend H got a tummy bug and it gradually took us all down. The weekend consisted of me…

Gousto Box Review

Gousto Box Review

We get a weekly shop delivered and create a rough plan of the meals we might want to cook up during the next seven days, but there isn’t normally a strict plan. There are often days when neither of us can be terribly bothered to invent anything and the freezer comes into play. This is one reason I was excited to trial a Gousto box, it comes with ingredients for…

Dressing Up {The Ordinary Moments 14} #42

We don’t live a particularly glamorous life. On the whole I try to present myself well and am extremely house proud, but we’re not off to exotic locations and living the high life. But now and then, we have a reason to get dressed up and this time H was included too – yay! We were at an 80th Birthday party for the hub’s Grandma and my little man was…

Country Kids | Misty Autumn Walks

Country Kids | Misty Autumn Walks

I love those misty Autumn/Winter days. The ones with crisp air and no rain. Perfect for stomping around in and doing so for no better reason than getting a spot of fresh air. I love the fields near our house. I grew up running round these fields as a little girl with friends and never appreciated how lucky we were to have this wide open space all around us. I…

The Anatomy of a Christmas Eve Box

The Anatomy of a Christmas Eve Box

Last year as I eagerly prepped for our second Christmas together as a family of three, I saw across my Instagram feed a beautiful tradition of giving your child a box on Christmas Eve. I vowed that I would do the same the following year and for each year there after. I love the idea. Obviously what goes into a Christmas Eve box is for each parent alone to decide,…
