A few weeks ago, the lovely folk at House of Fraser got in touch asking whether I’d be interested in choosing Busby some new toys from their online collection. With the move looming in the very near future and the weather having taken a turn for the worse I nodded profusely, and spent most of nap time excitedly to choosing some new items for her toy box.

Hullo! Welcome to The Week That Was: Captured! Have you had a fab week?

The rules for #TWTWC are simple; link up one post about your week! It can be photographed, Instagrammed, written, videoed… basically in any format you wish! This linky is about capturing memories and I treat it a bit like an online diary. Please only link up relevant posts. Also, if you fancy commenting on other people’s posts that would be super too – everyone loves a comment!

Busby is a huge fan of sheep, so when Olive & Moss gifted her this gorgeous dress and these wonderful tights from their lovely range of clothes, she couldn’t wait to try them on… (in fact, she loved them so much that she didn’t want to take them off at bath time!)

Well here we are at 23 months! It’s hard to believe that Busby will be two in just one month!
Busby at 23 months
This month Busby has most certainly become more cunning! She has somehow worked out that if she doesn’t get her own way with one adult, then she can turn her charm on the other adult in the room (a smile and sweet tone to her voice) and try her luck there. It’s very cheeky, and usually produces much laughter from us! Continue reading


The giveaways continue on Make, Do and Push! today with one for the Dads (and car-obsessed Mums).

We’ve joined forces with BMW to bring you this rather fabulous, stylish BMW ride-on/push toy car – the perfect present for any car-loving little person this Christmas.

Yesterday Busby and I said “farewell” to one of my oldest and closest friends… well, not “farewell” really, more “au revoir!” because we will see her again, it might just be a few months until we’re back in Sussex.

We all went to Bill’s in Lewes for lunch. If you haven’t ever been to Bill’s before I would whole heartedly recommend breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea AND dinner there (maybe not in the same day though…) The halloumi and houmous burger is to die for – as are the puddings – plus they’re ridiculously good with children, and their kids menu doesn’t just consist of “stuff and chips”.

I digress (I’m going to miss Bill’s - I’m not sure it has made it to Yorkshire yet…) Continue reading

I have a great giveaway for you on Make, Do and Push! today. Back in July I was invited to a press launch for the new Piper, the All-In-One Home Security Device. Unfortunately, I was unable to make the event at the last minute, but the lovely people at Piper have sent me one of their Piper devices, worth £157*, to giveaway to a lucky reader!
