Me & Mine Project {November 17}

For the boy's birthday we decided to go to Clip 'n Climb Nottingham.  They really enjoyed it although it took Oliver a while to get his confidence up to let go and drop down.  Matteo wants to have a go if we go again.  We then went for a pub meal with my Mum & Dad and my brother and his girlfriend and then back home for tea and chocolate birthday cake.  The day of their birthday was a Monday so the boys were at school but they enjoyed being sung to and took raisins in for all their classmates.

My Five Favourite Products For Keeping Dry Skin At Bay In Winter

I have to admit I'm lazy with putting cream on my body as it's always cold coming out the shower and i just want to get straight in my pyjamas instead of putting some cold product on my skin but I have to keep it up if I want it to feel better.  I also avoid any products with SLS or parabens which can irritate and dry out the skin, concentrating on more natural toiletries.

My Christmas Wish List 2017

1. Sara Miller Travel Mug - I saw this quite a while ago but as my current mug is still working well and not leaking I haven't got round to buying it.  My Cath Kidston now is starting to look quite worn and has lost nearly all its design from being held every day.  I love the Flamingo design on this mug. She also has a cosmetic purse and pencil case in the same design that are lovely.

The Siblings Project {November 17}

The last four weeks have included Half Term.  The boys went to Nana and Grandad's for three days and enjoyed going swimming twice, jumping in and going down the big slide. I had the end of the week off so we had three days together and enjoyed a breakfast out in town, going to the cinema to see The Jungle Bunch and a trip to the garden centre for cake.  At the end of the week we carved pumpkins for halloween.  The boys drew a picture and asked me to transfer it on to their pumpkin.  You can see us picking the pumpkin in last month's Siblings project post here.
