Interviewing Emily: 20 Questions With My Five Year Old

Several years ago when E was three I wrote a post – An Interview With My Thee Year Old, it seems like it was only a few months ago, where does the time go. I came across the post I wrote before and I thought I would ask E the same questions now she is five so I can see how her answers have change. 1. What is something that Mummy says to you? What did you do at School today. I do ask that question every day and I very rarely get much information out of her, it’s almost like school is some secret place that grown ups are no allowed to know about. 2. What makes you happy? When we go on the train to go shopping together, I like shopping, shall we go shopping on Saturday mummy? I do love the thought process of an answer to a simple… View Post

The Lost Smile book review & giveaway!

What makes Children Smile? Research has revealed it’s still the simple pleasures in life that make our children smile. Pulling silly faces (44%), reading stories (28%) and playing hide and seek (27%) remain the best and simplest ways of putting a smile on a child’s face, said the survey of 1,000 parents and children. According to Wrigley Extra, children smile up to 400 times a day!  Wow, that is a lot – even though that is surprising to hear, when you think about it does seem right. E and J are always smiling and it is the simple things that make them smile the most. The research commissioned by Wrigley’s Extra®, spoke to children and their parents about what makes them smile to mark the launch of its own storybook, The Lost Smile. E absolutely loves stories, she likes a good bedtime story and she also enjoys reading some books herself.  So… View Post

Summer Style with JD Williams

With Summer here, well sort of, I find myself digging into my wardrobe for more floaty and feminine items and summery shoes. I absolutely love shoes and I have boxes of them in the bottom of my wardrobe and lots of loose pairs too, you can never have too many shoes. The problem I have with many of my shoes that I currently own is that they are not very practical, the lovely yellow heels I bought on a whim don’t really go with many clothes, the stunning black heels are not practical for pushing a pram, even some of my wedges I cannot wear when pushing the pram. When JD Williams gave me the opportunity to review a pair of shoes from their Summer Sandals range I was delighted. It took me a long time to choose a pair as there is so much choice and I wanted something that was… View Post

Summer Fun With Baker Ross

The other day I did a post about some of the Baker Ross Summer Crafts that we had been sent t review, this post is about the other lovely items we received in our parcel. The rest of the items included some wonderful animal paint stamps, dog self adhesive stickers and some amazing rainbow paper. E went to find the box of different colour paints that we have an chose four different colours that she was going to use for the Farm Stampers. E started with the cockerel and I was really surprised how well it came out as when ever E uses paint stamps they normally smudge and she rubs them a bit when puts them down. E had a lot of fun using the Farm Stampers and whilst the painting was drying she wanted to use some of the dog stickers. The stickers are very cute and there are… View Post
