World Mental Health Day x

Give me a pen and paper and I’ll write. Give me a keyboard and I’ll type. Give me a subject to write about that I have no passion for or belief in and it will be a piece not worth reading. When I started my blog a few weeks ago, there were days when I …

Since weaning my little guy,  the Organix Rice Cakes have been a permanent product for us. I was introduced to the range through their rice cakes and due to the variety of flavours, Joseph has always been a big fan.

Kiddylicious – Product Review

wp-image-1343464886jpg.jpg

When Kiddylicious asked me if I would like to try some of their products I couldn’t respond quick enough! Joseph (and the bf) are already big fans of their wafers and to be honest.. at times they have kept me sane! As soon as we are through the front door from nursery, I literally run …

I don’t love that Joseph is getting older, however I love that with age he can pretty much eat anything within reason. I love experimenting and that he is loving new things. I was quite fussy growing up so I really want to try and get Joseph to be a bit more adventurous with his …

Josephs cous cous salad

This is currently one of Joseph’s favourites – not to mention the fact that it keeps him occupied for longer so it gives me a chance to give the kitchen a clean or prep for dinner!  You can get the original recipe from Annabell Karmel, however I have changed a couple of bits in mine in accordance …

Greek style chicken breasts

My favourite day of the weekend is Sunday! Bit of a weird one bearing in mind work the next day but I love it! I just always seem to be so busy on a Saturday so by the Sunday I love a bit of laziness, pottering around, coffee shops and cooking. I love cooking. I …

Since having Joseph Sudocrem has been a staple product for us! Even more so in the Summer months & what a Summer we have had – however due to the heat and having to up Josephs water intake, his nappies have been very heavy throughout the night causing nappy rash! Nappy rash has never been a …
