52 Weeks of Gratitude – Week Thirty

A finished nursery!!! Movie nights with Papa Getting the final ‘OK’ from the Midwife for my homebirth Last night’s chip supper, after a trip to the Museum and a walk -about to see the Christmas lights A friend who can fix my laptop super fast when it suddenly broke this week! Getting our guinea pig back – one of our guinea pigs escaped at the weekend, we didn’t think there was any hope of him finding is way home. Then on Tuesday we woke up to find his picture on Facebook – someone had found him in the Churchyard next to us and taken him to a local vets. I took three very happy kiddos for a walk to pick him up! The first mince pie of the season –  tasted SO good, even if it wasn’t homemade ;) Listening to the girls playing together…. in between falling out or being mean to each other, they actually have moments of playing nicely together The rare morning that I wake up first, and get to enjoy a coffee before the rest of the house wakes up. That peace is bliss The cutest fleece snow suit that arrived this week for Beastie…

Support your natural defences with IMMUNAID

It’s around this time of year that we find ourselves starting on the seemingly endless round of winter coughs and colds. With three kids in the house, there always seems to be someone with the sniffles, and you can guarantee if one person starts then everyone will be struck down within a few days too. Keeping healthy is vital, we eat lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, and get plenty of fresh air. I give the kids a multi-vitamn everyday to try and keep them sniffle free, but as a Mama I don’t want to get sick either. Sometimes, you feel that you need something extra to give you a boost. Bimuno® IMMUNAID has been specially formulated to support your immune system and keep you fit and healthy. It contains Vitamin C, and, especially for people with a low immune system could be the perfect ‘extra’ this winter to avoid all those bugs. IMMUNAID is a prebiotic, meaning that it helps to increase and strengthen your body’s ‘good’ bacteria. Compared to probiotics which are a ‘live’ bacteria, prebiotics are non-digestible so that they arrive in your gut intact. Bimuno are offering a months supply for one of my readers to…

Nursery Reveal!

Finally it’s done!!! Feels like forever since I started clearing out this little space for Beastie! It was painted before the summer, and sat waiting…and waiting… and waiting to be finished. We finally got around to getting a piece of carpet, I got the woodwork painted, made his mobile and it started coming together. I knew I wanted a few pieces to decorate his walls – the banner {which reads Nos Da Cariad – Welsh for Goodnight Love}, the Fur Neil Moon Poster and the gorgeous little postcards all came from This Modern Life and the star wall stickers came from Bloobry. Baya and I had great fun putting them on the wall! I had a moses basket that all of my girls slept in, and one of my nieces. Unfortunately it came back from friends a little worse for wear. I was in need of something for his nursery that he could sleep in safely for the first few months. Thankfully, George Home stepped in and sent us this gorgeous Obaby Swinging Crib. I was so excited! It’s gorgeous, and I’m hoping he enjoys sleeping in it very much. It arrived on Friday, and I got it made up…

Pram Handwarmer – keeping your fingers toasty this winter

When I found out I was pregnant again, I was actually really excited about having a pram again. Weird I know! We always seem to have so much stuff with us whenever we go out for the day, and I really hate having to carry heavy bags. After ten years of always having a pram, when Baya finally stopped using hers, it took some getting used to. The only thing I didn’t like about having a pram through the winter was getting cold hands. Gloves can be a pain, as you’re constantly taking them on and off, and with my Raynauds, even gloves don’t always keep my hands warm – and certainly not dry. I stumbled across the fabulous Pram Handwarmer Company a couple of weeks ago nad they were kind enough to send me one of their handwarmer muffs to try out. I did consider taking a doll out in the pushchair to test it out… but decided that was a step too far. The handwarmer muffs attach to the handlebar of your pram, with the handlebar running inside the glove so you always have tight hold of your pram. Made with a waterproof outer to keep your hands…
