Giveaway // Win with Aldi Mamia & Sitters.co.uk

Nick and I went out for the first time in what feels like forever on Saturday night. I was a finalist for two Northern Blog Awards, so we got dressed up, left the children with grandparents and had a wonderful night out in Manchester! Having two children and busy lives means that date nights are now few and far between, so it’s always appreciated when we have the time to go out just the two of us. Quality time together is so important. Although, to be fair, we do spend most of the  ...

How much do you know about Carbon Monoxide poisoning? Well, this week is Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week and I’ve got a fantastic giveaway for you, as well as some very interesting facts and figures from npower’s annual research.

As the dark nights draw in, the coats get thicker, and the woolly hats appear (following six months in the wardrobe), I find myself dreaming of warmer climates. Of shedding my coat, my gloves, my 100 denier tights. Of donning a swimsuit, slathering myself in suncream, and lying next to the pool with a good book. (This is definitely a dream – I *never* get to read a book on holiday anymore… Children don’t let you lie by the pool all day!) I love autumn and winter, but since  ...

Review + Giveaway // Bing Baking

Ahh CBeebies, the saviour of parents throughout the land! Busby has been a Bing fan for a year or so now, and H-Bear (who is just starting to become interested in the television) enjoys a bit of Bing too, so I was very excited when we were asked to try out Bing Bunny’s very first (and brand spanking new) interactive app: Bing Baking. “Baking, it’s a Bing Thing.” The app is very simple and incredibly easy to pick up – Busby got the hang of it within the first  ...
