We are super excited that in a few weeks we are off to see the girls favourite piggies in Peppa Pig’s Surprise tour.  peppa pig's surprise tour
The Peppa Pig live stage show, Peppa Pig’s Surprise, is currently on tour and is visiting theatres across the UK & Ireland until this autumn in 2016. This brand new show marks the seventh consecutive year of wonderful Peppa Pig live theatre tours (the first tour was in 2009) and the fourth Peppa Pig stage production in total. We are really excited as the girls are huge fans and never seen her live.

In Peppa Pig’s Surprise tour audiences will enjoy interactive fun, games and, of course, surprises. This charming, colourful new show features new songs and new life-size puppets. Peppa Pig’s Surprise promises to be the perfect theatre show for all pre-schoolers.  View Post

I have seen lots of mixed reviews about Chemist Direct so thought I would try it for myself. The website is basically as it says, an online chemist and is very simple to use and to find what you need. There is a good range of products but some things such a nappies only come in a certain size so you would need to check that they do cater for your needs first off.

The prices on the site are very competitive with supermarkets/beauty stores on the high street and often have good deals. Certain Schwarzkopf  products were on buy one get one free when I ordered which was handy! Here is what I ordered with my voucher:

I don’t often do food reviews namely because I’m not a massive foody but when we were offered the chance to review Table Table at Moseley Park in Wolverhampton I said yes because it wasn’t far from my Gran’s house and I loved being able to treat her.

So last Saturday 7 of us (me, the husband, my Dad, my Gran and the kids) trotted along to Table Table to have a family meal together.

Location wise – it was very easy to find. It’s on a pretty main route to and from Wolverhampton centre and is next to the Premier Inn hotel with lots of parking right next to the entrance.  View Post

We were lucky enough to visit Bluestone in Wales. I have read so many blog reviews about family holidays to Bluestone Wales in so was incredibly excited to try out the family friendly accommodation. We stayed in a four bed Grassholm lodge on Preseli View. We went with my mother and father in law and our 3 kids who are aged 6 and 22 month and this is what we thought.

Check In

Super simple – you drive up to the window and are given your pack, car pass and key cards for your lodge. We arrived early and were told we could explore the site which we did. The barrier is lifted at 4.30pm to allow you to drive and unload – word of warning it is 4.30pm on the dot. My husband was told off for trying to go in at 4.28pm and made to drive round and go to the back of the queue so they are incredibly strict on timings!

The Lodge

It was spotless and very spacious. From the outside it looked huge and it was! We stayed in a two storey Grassholm lodge

My husband is a builder and he was impressed that they hadn’t sacrificed space in order to cram more lodges in. Our lodge was 4 bedrooms; three twins and one double with three bathrooms (two baths, one walk in shower, one ensuite) The very well stocked kitchen had a fridge/freezer, kettle, dishwasher, grill, toaster, microwave, cooker and hobs – perfect self catering with the added bonus you don’t need to wash up!

I have been a little quiet on the blog front for the last few weeks. Reviews, competitions and generic posts seem to have taken over along with a spot of automatic scheduled tweets because I just feel down. 

I struggle when my husband works away. Come 7pm the house falls silent and while some days this is very much needed on the other hand to be left alone with your thoughts is very hard. 

I am in complete disbelief that it is March. It being March just makes me feel incredibly sad as I know April is approaching; her one year anniversary is coming. And I’m not ready. I’m not ready to accept that I will have lived every day in a calendar year without her here. How much has changed in this year. How much I have to share. How this pain has not eased as everyone keeps assuring me it will.

I feel stuck in a rut. I have no drive to complete menial tasks and have fallen into the horrible decline that when the girls nap I too join them; just wanting to make all the mess and tidying go away. I feel I’m failing as a wife as my husband comes home to a sinking ship. Everything is everywhere, clothes not put away and just multiplying more and more.

I do not think I am depressed. I’m sure people would read this and make that conclusion about me but I’m not. I’m just sad. Incredibly sad. Next weekend is Mothers Day and it’s another stark reminder that she left us far too soon. 

I started this post not wanting to be all doom and gloom but here I am! I think this is why I have somewhat pulled back on blogging. I am sorry. I will get my sh*t together. Being like this benefits no one. But sometimes it’s the only option
