I’ve been given a challenge by 99p Stores – they sent me £10.00 voucher and asked me to see exactly what I could spend it on – this is the start of #my99psummer. My plan was to get something for the garden and then a variety of things to keep… Continue reading »

Ryvita – a new generation of healthy snacks

I love Ryvita!  I’ve loved the Original Ryvita crispbreads since I was child, my Mum was a big fan, and we often had Ryvita at snack time.  I am still addicted to Marmite with my Ryvita. Actually I quite like eating them with nothing on them at all! I don’t… Continue reading »

I’ve joined the Hygiene Revolution

I live in a house with Monkey, a typical 3 and half-year old muck attracting little boy, a one year old cat who insists on walking all over my kitchen work tops with his muddy paws and Daddy P who is verging on OCD when it comes to keeping the… Continue reading »

We’re going to the Zoo, zoo, zoo :)

On Tuesday I took Monkey to Whipsnade Zoo. We’ve made this an annual trip since he was six months old, and meet up with one of Gramp’s cousins when we are there.  I used Tesco Day’s out vouchers so it makes it a reasonable day out for us. It’s been… Continue reading »

A wonderful day out at the Tractor Ted Farm Show

Mr Kipling still makes exceeding good cakes – Strawberry Fancies

Something arrived in the post today which took me straight back to my childhood and visits to my Granny.  We’ve all heard of Mr (& now Mrs!) Kipling and his wonderful cakes right? I for one, grew up with his fruit pies, cherry bakewells and other wonders. But the one… Continue reading »

Hovis Breakfast Bakes – too good not to try

I have to say a big thank you to Missing Sleep for making me aware of Hovis Breakfast Bakes – they looked absolutely scrummy and I was thrilled when we were sent some of our own to try. As you can see there are three different options – Milk &… Continue reading »

Flitter, Flutter, Butterflies

What an awful day it was yesterday weatherwise!  Rain, rain and more rain 🙁 Luckily Monkey and I had already decided on an indoor trip out with a special family friend.  I’d ordered some Days Out Vouchers with my Tesco Reward points, we picked our friend up en route and… Continue reading »

Book Review – Grandpa’s Garden

As you will know from a recent post on a BritMums meet up and another post I have fallen in love with Barefoot Books.  They saw my post discussing their books and very kindly offered to let me review another book for them. One super happy Mummy!! I had their… Continue reading »
