    milk&more – My Experience

    Who remembers milk being delivered by the Milkman? We never bought milk from a shop when I was younger it was always delivered to our doorstep whilst we slept. I remember the frozen top of the milk bottle (that was the best part) and being told off for using too much on my cereal. Nowadays we buy milk and other essentials at the supermarket and gone are the days of Milkmen – or so I thought. When milk&more got in touch to see if I would like a month’s worth of fresh milk delivered by the Milkman I quickly replied yes! I had not heard of milk&more before so was intrigued…

    Weekend Adventures – Beach, Church & Somerset

    The children broke up for the Christmas holidays on Friday as did Mr K, I have them all home for 2 weeks – magic!

We nearly went home with a hamster as we nipped into the pet shop, they had the cutest little hamster and he was climbing along his cage just willing us to take…

    Christmas Eve Basket 2017

    From an early age my mum would buy my sister and myself new pyjamas to wear on Christmas Eve. We were also allowed to open one present from under the tree, we never had a Christmas Eve Basket as that wasn’t a “thing” back in the 80s. However, over the years since becoming a parent I’ve heard more and more about these festive pre Christmas treats for children and I love it. For the past few years I’ve left out an array of goodies to be enjoyed on Christmas Eve and the children always have new jammies, this year I’ve certainly gone all out with the treats. The Christmas Eve…

    My Mummy is a Scientist – Book Review

    “My mummy is a Scientist; curious, keen and smart. Her job is so exciting, I don’t know where to start.” My Mummy is a Scientist is a wonderful book for children age 3 – 7 years old. This book is one of three books in a series by Butterfly Books, a brother sister team who write books for children aiming to transform the way in which they perceive various careers.   I particularly like these stories as they leave you feeling empowered, like you can accomplish any dream you have. I think it is important for little children to know that mummy can do any job she wants to whether it…

    Christmas in the 80s

    Christmas in the 80s was amazing, nothing at all like Christmas nowadays. It actually meant something more than extravagant gifts, huge Christmas trees decorated within an inch of their modern life and flashing LED lights draped around each corner of the guttering. Christmas in the 80s was all about foil decorations, tinsel, multi-coloured glass fairy lights and a magical atmosphere. I used to love Christmas at primary school the excitement of making decorations for the tree, we never had ‘happy hour’ at school we just cracked on with making our tat to take home in the hope that we would get a ‘wow, that’s amazing’ from our mums. We had a…

    Bad Moms Exeter Adventures At Bills Restaurant

    As the title suggests myself and Mum, That’s Me blogger Lynsey, were Bad Moms at the weekend. Although we didn’t get steaming drunk or act wreckless (saving that for our Christmas night out) we did have a bit of a mummy date in Exeter. Dads were on duty, train tickets were purchased and we were freeeeee! It still feels so odd being out on my own with no handbag full of raisins, cars, crayons, wipes and snotty tissues. I was able to walk freely without nagging for children to hurry up or hold my hand, it was so nice and I had forgotten how lovely it was to have another…
