Get comfortable with women’s intimate health 14

As a women I have never really been embarrassed talking about women’s health or my intimate areas.  In fact I can actually say vagina out loud without laughing.  I am more likely to burst into a fit of giggles at someone calling their vagina a tuppence or frou frou, than I am anything else.  So I am delighted to be working with Canesten and their #GetComfortable with intimate health and thrush campaign in raising awareness women’s intimate health.

Thread Tree Christmas Card

Fine Motor String Art Tree Christmas Cards 18

Do you still send Christmas cards?  Each year we send less and less, but I want the ones we do send to be meaningful and the way we do that is to make our own.  These super simple fine motor string art tree christmas cards appeal to the scandi style lover in me, plus they are fun and simple to make.  I can see these being framed and brought out year after year.


Sportpax review and giveaway 112

Both of my boys are sports mad, especially football.  I am lucky that it takes no encouragement on my part to get them outside in t he fresh air playing and with the lighter nights they are outside playing football or cricket with their friends until they are called in. They both either scoot or walk to and from school and if they are taking the scooter then they really need a backpack for their school things (books, pencil case, PE kit etc) and this is where these fab Sportpax come in.  Sportpax are backpacks with iconic, fun designs in the shape of sports balls. Sportpax bags are tough, resilient and more »

To help encourage you get outside and take your kids on nature trails, TV presenter and mum of two, Angellica Bell is sharing her tips on getting down with nature and helping children learn where food comes from in a Twitter party on Wednesday March 25th, 8.30pm.

MWorld, A new way of learning 39

Our children are growing up and learning in an environment so different to when I was at school.  Online technology is a given.  Video content is available at the click of a button.  I remember the school only having one TV on wheels and often my class would come to my parents house to watch a TV program! For the last month or so we have been reviewing the MWorld app and I can safely say that the boys have loved it and both MadDad and me think it is a fantastic way of reinforcing learning without kids even thinking they are learning.   What is MWorld?
