Things that I have Liked and Loved in May (2019)

To say that May has been manic is an understatement! We haven’t stopped and I’m quite literally ready to drop. Saying that we’ve had some awesome events and some fantastic family time – here are a few of the many things which I have #LikedandLoved throughout the past month.

New Phone Day

My husband and I were both using rather outdated mobile phones, both of which we fancied upgrading and given that we were offered a super double-deal we couldn’t resist. We are now the proud owners of two top-of-the-range handsets – an IPhone XS Max and a Samsung Note 9.…

Things that I have Liked and Loved in April (2019)

We’ve had such an incredibly active and fun-packed month, here are a few of the things which I have #LikedandLoved throughout April.

Paul’s Birthday

Paul turned the grand age of thirty-six earlier this month, he is technically therefore a year older than me now. Thus, I can and will spend the next four months reminding him and ribbing him regarding our age gap.

Blackpool Sandcastle

To celebrate Paul’s birthday we took the kids out for an afternoon swimming at Blackpool’s Sandcastle Waterpark. We bought wristbands to ride all the slides and the both the kids and us adults had the most amazing day.…

Road-Testing the Aquabeads Cars 3 Playset

Being part of the ‘Aquabeaders Online Group’ we have reviewed a number of Aquabeads sets throughout the past year or so, all of which we have greatly enjoyed using. Each set has provided us with templates and ideas to follow from which we have created countless creations over time. This month we were sent the ‘Cars 3 Aquabeads Playset‘ to review and to share with my readers.

 

What Are Aquabeads?

Aquabeads are small, coloured beads which when placed upon crafting boards and sprayed with water become tacky thus sticking together to create a range of designs. Whilst there are similar products available on the market most of these are either lower quality or require a hot iron to bond beads together which isn’t neither safe nor practical for young children.…

#LittleLoves – Tangled, Tea Tree & Taster Sessions

Please excuse my lack of posts throughout the week, the weathers been tropical and as a result I’ve spent the majority of my week soaking up the rays with the kids out and about having fun. The rain made a come back this afternoon which in all honesty was a relief as my sun burn was beginning to get sun burn!

Without further do I’ll do my best to rake together a few #LittleLoves from the past seven days or so.

I promised myself that I would hit the books and get back to the my ‘book worm’ tendencies but other than the odd magazine, online articles and the odd email I can’t say I’ve read much of anything.…

#LittleLoves – Cards, Checks, Crafting And Time As A Couple

Can you believe that it’s half term already? It feels as if it was only Christmas the other week yet Valentines Day has already passed us by and we are now rolling like out of control Easter Eggs towards Spring.

I’m starting to wonder whether some kind of ‘fast forward function’ is secretly activated upon becoming a parent. Each time another kid is added to the mix the speed is magically increased rendering you unable to distinguish a week from a weekend.  Time just seems to slip away and it’s blumming frightening!

To save wasting further time I’ll get to the point and share my #LittleLoves from the past seven days but feels more like two or three days in all honesty.…
