My New Kitchen

When we moved into this house just over two years ago the house was an absolute state and needed decorating badly (check out these post and this post) but the kitchen was actually not that bad, not to our taste but loveable so it was last on our list. We’ve now made everywhere else almost as we want it so we decided in the 6 weeks holiday to do it up. We’ve kept the units because they were quite new when we moved in so no need to waste money we haven’t got.

The before photos are when when we cleaned out the pantry and cupboards because that’s when I remembered I needed before photos.

So we painted the pantry and changed around the shelves slightly. Added new tiles, new worktop (and more of it) a new cooker and hob and a dishwasher. We also added a new tap in the sink.

I love it so much! I want to bake all of the food now 🙂

Zuru Smashers Dino Epic Egg Review

We were recently asked if we would like to review Zuru Smashers Dino Egg and as Harry LOVES a collectible I jumped at the chance! Harry was so excited when he saw it, to be honest so was I, the egg is huge!

He couldn’t wait to get stuck in! And Smash open the giant egg.

Inside was a bag jam packed full of goodies!

One thing I love is how long the items in the egg have taken Harry to play with. For the price I would have been unimpressed if he had had enough after 5 mins but we’ve had it a couple of weeks and he still has a couple of them still to do. The eggs were opened instantly. Even Jack (3) enjoyed that part and the 18 year old haha

We were really lucky and only had one or two doubles

The next day Harry opened the glowing slime. Obviously he loved it. We were expecting some more little collectibles but dinosaur bones were inside. We soon discovered that you have to open all the larger packs from the egg to uncover all the bones to make the dinosaur which is really cool.

We were really impressed with these Smashers and I can see us getting more for Christmas. Definitely worth the price. They’re currently on offer in Smyths at the moment so get in quick.

Our 6 Weeks break in Photos

What a 6 weeks that was! I normally completely dread the holidays but this year I actually enjoyed them. I could have done without the last week and a half (we’ve all had enough by then) but on the whole it was lovely.

Drayton manor x2, Cadbury world, London, Shreks Adventure, a few birthday parties, meals out, baking, lots of parks and days in the garden.

Did you have a good summer holiday? What was your highlight?

Cadbury World

We recently visited Cadbury World in the summer holidays (paid for ourselves) we’ve been a few times before when the teenagers were little and always loved it. The last time we went Harry was about 2 we decided to take Harry 7 and Jack 3 as we think that’s a good age to go. The boys loved it! Most of it is as it was years ago but they have added some new things like the 4D cinema and they’re brilliant!

It was such a good day! We would definitely go again but maybe not in the summer holidays again as it was quite busy. Have you ever been? What was your favourite bit?

Back to school with Petit Fernand

I don’t think there is such a thing as being too prepared before back to school and I’m one of those mums that gets ready for back to school before they break up for the summer or at the start of the holidays at the latest. When I know it’s done, it means I can enjoy the holidays more. We’ve worked with Petit Fernand before and loved there products so much, I got in touch to work with them again. Last time we got some sticker name labels which we used for a couple of years but Harry is starting a new school so we needed some more for his new uniform. I love how personalised they are. Harry loves everything football so obviously I had to choose a little football for his name labels

They come in a handy booklet to keep them together too

They also offer iron on labels but I personally prefer the stickers as they’re so easy and have lasted really well.

Last time I ordered Harry a personalised lunch box that he has used everyday for the last couple of years and will be taking with him to the new school. We love it!

Anyway so I decided to get Jack one for September 2020 (see nothing like being prepared)

It is perfect! I chose the name, the colours and the pictures, it’s totally personalised! He’s a big superhero fan so I decided to go with that design. They have so many to choose from, you’re bound to find one to suit your child’s likes.

I love the different compartment and the ice pack feature. Its also microwave and dishwasher safe too.

There is a handy leaflet with a care guide too.

If you’re looking at getting prepared for the new school, I highly recommend Petit Fernand!
