I am so so over winter. The weather this week has been absolutely dreadful. In fact, this season has been pretty crap, let’s be honest. I am dreaming of the slightly warmer weather (I don’t mind if I still have to wear a coat, I just don’t want my hands to freeze off) and I think Bear is getting a bit peed off about it being cold/wet/icy out, he just LOVES to be outside. I’ve started looking for things that are upcoming again in places local to us. Usually, pages of places we like on Facebook will add their upcoming events or I’ll have a nosey at websites such as Trafford Centre’s or Liverpool ONE’s.
It has recently been Christmas and I’m sure many of you have had to have a good clear out of your children’s old toys to make space for new ones. I know I did. Luckily I found one or two toys that didn’t work anyway & the rest are going to charity. Good deed done and space made. WIN. But one thing that firmly made it’s way into the toybox before Christmas, were these Fantasia Blocks* by Hape. We have reviewed another toy by this brand which you can read here which is also, still in the toybox (yaaayyy) and both are constantly scattered across the living room on a daily basis courtesy of the toddler (I’m exaggerating a little, they’re really not that big at all!)
Hello my loves. I don’t think I’ve really started a blog post like that, I’m so sorry. Hello! I thought I would do this post today as I have been very kindly tagged by my lovely friend Lisa from Oh Luna and I thought, heck, why not?! You guys probably know very little about me (well, depending of course haha!) and usually, I’m a bit of an oversharer although I am definitely trying to change that. So brace yourselves, it’s a bit of a long one, but I hope it helps you guys get to know me better & I’m loving reading the tag from other bloggers too! (I’m a nosey cow, I’m sorry).
From when we found out we had a tiny human on the way, we had thought long and hard about childcare (after all of the other baby related stuff that clouds over your brain). We came to the conclusion that when our child turned 2, we would look for a childminder as we thought we would also get the 15hrs free. Unfortunately (in some cases) we don’t qualify for the free 15hrs but also, the decision on childcare has taken a turn.
You’re stuck indoors wondering why your toddler is destroying the place, not listening to you and whining (a LOT). So you want to get out (it’s rare these days you go stir crazy) but outings always mean to the park. Why not make it a little more fun and throw a Toddlebike2 into the mix. Your child will definitely love it and it makes outings so much more exciting. I’m so so grateful for Toddlebike for gifting us one of these even if I do have to get it out on most trips to the park and I love that bear has his own little bike now.
