Over the summer we took four teenage boys to France and were lucky enough to be offered a Ford Tourneo for the journey. These boys’ were all taller than me and two of them were taller than the husbeast. We knew we were going to need a seven-seater, but even then most of them do not have the luggage room that is needed when you are travelling.
Treads – School shoes that last is a collaborative post (they provided me with one free pair and a pair to giveaway). I have never lied about the fact that I have a child that kills school shoes. In fact, I think that school shoes take some stick from most children. For my boys, it is not just wearing them at school, but also the football in the playground. Mini seems to be especially hard on his shoes.
Teen Bedroom Update is a paid collaborative post with Bostik. Over the last six months, we have been working on updating Mini’s bedroom. You can see exactly what we did on our earlier post. However, he has been desperate to move his Xbox to his room over the winter from the conservatory as the rain means he needs to have the volume loud.
DIY Mummy Trick or Treat Bowl is a paid collaboration with HARIBO for the #HariboShareTheScare campaign. Don’t you just love a five minute craft that is easy and even better reversible and it is the perfect bowl to welcome your trick or treaters with this Halloween especially when filled with my boys’ favourite HARIBO ScareMix.
For some people, a trip to Orlando is a once in a lifetime trip (I have been once with all my family and once on a press trip with Maxi). Travelling to the USA can be expensive and if you are like me then you will want to make sure you have all bases covered like getting your ESTA ! My brother and his family travel to Orlando on a regular basis (it is their happy place) and so he is sharing some of his top tips for travelling to Orlando.
This paper leaf garland is easy peasy to make, so much so that it is almost embarrassing to do a tutorial for it! I love making simple seasonal decorations and this Simple Paper Leaf Garland is the perfect companion to our paper leaf wreath which was hung on my front door and I used the same free printable leaves templates and paper. It really does make a super fall garland for the mantel (or should that be mantle?) with the oranges, reds and mustard coloured leaves.
