My boys don’t often ask for toys, but have been interested in a Teksta Robotic Puppy for the last three years and due to poor reviews, I have managed to talk them out of it. So when we were offered the new Teksta Robotic Puppy 5.00 to review I thought we would see what the fuss is all about and if they are worth the £59.99 that they cost.
Let’s talk cars. Believe it or not I only actually learned to drive when pregnant with Mini who is ten. Since then I have had three cars, each and every one of them French! I started off with a Peugeot 307 estate, then moved on to a Renault Grand Scenic and then downsized to a Citroën C3, which is five years old and called the snot rod. So what is it that Mum’s look for in a car?
If you are anything like me that you do not throw anything way and I have a box full of felt scraps. Felt is such a beautiful material and perfect for making things with as it doesn’t fray. After using some of our felt scraps to make our Kandinsky inspired trees I decided to come up with some other ideas for using scraps of felt.
I am delighted to be working with SSE in raising awareness of and increasing the opportunity for girls to get involved in football from a young age and am over the moon to be able to share with you this amazing video about football (soccer to my American readers) helping overcome life’s greatest challenges as part of SSE’s Dads and Daughters programme.
I am a really big advocate of cooking with children and getting kids in the kitchen from an early age. Some of my happiest memories are of helping my mum bake and cook, but more than just happy memories, she left me with the legacy of being pretty handy in the kitchen and this is something I am really keen to pass on to both my boys.
I used to love ready meals. ready meals were all that the husbeast and I ate before I was pregnant. It wasn’t that I couldn’t cook, it was that I didn’t cook. Then I got pregnant and no matter what I ate I was sick! Then I gave birth to a wonderful son and I swore that he would only eat real food. And you know what I nearly drove myself to an early grave making sure that he didn’t have a jar.
