When you bring a brand new human into the world, everyone makes allowances for you. Forgetting to text back, not getting out of your PJs by midday, constantly looking like crap – it’s fine, you’ve got a newborn! If you are crazy enough to have twins, then people make HUGE allowances for your state of permanent zombie-fication and the fact you are barely coherent for the first year. But you see, as each year passes people’s sympathy wanes and I have found right now, that quite frankly no one gives a give that your three-year old doesn’t sleep.
January is such a gloomy month where all I want to do is hibernate. The fun and excitement of Christmas has faded away and the weather has turned flipping cold. Last week saw our first flurry of snow in a long time, so we were really excited to be sent some lovely snuggly winter jumpers to brighten up our week.
House of Fraser kindly sent the girls four jumpers which they chose themselves; being three makes you fiercely independent and my girls definitely have their own sense of style. We chose three Mango jumpers and one from the brand Yumi.
With Disney still on the brain after our trip to Disneyland Paris at Christmas, P1 opted for a gorgeous sparkly grey and gold Minnie Mouse jumper and what better place to debut it than at a Mickey and Minnie themed birthday party!
As you may remember, we went to see Disney On Ice Presents Frozen back in October and had an absolute whale of a time. The kids just adored the show ,as did my husband and I and we were all blown away by the amazing sets and production. When we found out that Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic is touring this year in sensational skating spectacular, I felt like a little kid myself! It looks set to be another corker of a production filled with so many much loved favourite Disney characters.
As you may know, I am a Slimming World member. I am just 6lbs off target and for me, a main part of my diet is meat. Slimming World enables you to eat lean cuts of meat with a 5% of less fat content. I was thrilled when Muscle Food contacted me and offered me to review their New Year Lean meat selection hamper, and I am also giving one away at the bottom of this post.
Muscle Food stocks a huge variety of food products, not just hampers. They have launched a range of clean eating lunch meals that you simply need to pop in the microwave. There are also ranges of dairy products, seafood products and lots of sweet and savoury health snacks.
We were recently sent the Bissell SpotClean cordless cleaner to review and am very excited to be able to giveaway one to a lucky winner. With three kids who love being outdoors and are a tad on the wild side, our carpets and sofas take a real hammering. After trying the Bissell SpotClean out, I’ve decided very household with kids needs a carpet and upholstery cleaner!
