VAX ONEPWR Blade 4 Cordless Vacuum – A Review

I’m not a domestic goddess. I’m not one of those people that enjoy cleaning. I try to keep our house as clean as I can but it’s a chore to me and I don’t get excited about it. Having said that, we were given the chance to try out and review the VAX ONEPWR Blade 4 Cordless Vacuum. I was so delighted and here’s why:

Aidy The Awesome – The Gramophones Theatre Company

The arts were hit hard by the pandemic. It’s been so long since we went to a theatre, cinema or music concert. Even during covid times, theatre companies have still been working on productions and last week we were lucky to be invited to see a preview of one of them. The Gramophones Theatre Company […]

Love Corn – Our Family’s New Favourite Snack

With two hungry growing boys in the house, we are always looking for new foods to offer them. They always have their head in the pantry searching for a snack and will more often than not pull out a chocolate biscuit or a packet of crisps. Love Corn offered to send us some of their snack bags to try and I jumped at the chance to give the twins (and their Dad!) something healthier to graze on.

Aubrey Bay aromatherapy

Using Aromatherapy to get a Better Nights Sleep with Aubrey Bay

I’m not a great sleeper, I’ve never slept well, since I was a teenager I think. I’m not a morning person. I always feel more rested when I go to bed late and wake up late. My ideal hours to keep would be bedtime at midnight and to get up at 9am. Unfortunately life doesn’t always work like that, especially when you have children and a partner who works shifts. Broken sleep is a common occurrence in our house. I need all the help I can get to help me sleep better and that’s where aromatherapy comes in.

Treads Shoes Twins Project – A Review

Getting your children ready to start back at school is a major thing for parents in the school holidays. You are trying to enjoy the time off with them but September looms and everything you need to get ready is in the back of your mind. Uniform, P.E. kit, bag, coat and last but not least : school shoes. Getting your children’s feet measured is a big milestone and as they get older, the excitement for the kids of seeing how much they have grown makes the measuring that bit easier.

10 Vegan Food Products That I Love

This is the second year that I have successfully completed Veganuary. I already eat a vegan breakfast every day and have done for about two years now. I wanted to do Veganuary again for both health and environmental reasons. We have been trying to cut down our meat consumption as a family and most of […]

A visit to Winter Wonderland at Conkers

A Visit to Winter Wonderland at Conkers

At this time of year, there’s so much to do, it’s hard to fit it all in. Putting up the tree and decorations, buying, wrapping and delivering presents, planning the food, going to watch the children’s nativity, the list can seem endless. One thing that is a must for many people is a trip to see Santa in his grotto and this year we were lucky enough to be invited to the opening of the Winter Wonderland at Conkers centre in heart of the National Forest.

The Little Prince Lakeside Arts

The Little Prince at Lakeside Arts Nottingham

I hadn’t been to the theatre in so long. I think we took the boys to see Peppa Pig when they were toddlers which was at least five years ago but hadn’t been since. We go to the cinema a couple of times a year. The boys love watching films and are really good at sitting still through the performance which is funny as they never sit still at home! Last week we were invited to The Lakeside Arts Theatre within the University of Nottingham campus to watch The Little Prince.
