Teachers gifts are one of the unwritten rules of being a parent – a little something to give your child’s teacher at the end of the school year, to thank them for being there for your child for the past year. Zac and Lily sent me a few of their Cookie Mix gifts – one to pass on to Georgie’s beloved teacher, and another to bake so we could try out the mix.… Continue Reading “Review: Thank You Teacher Cookie Mix – Zac and Lily”

I was offered a hamper to review by the lovely folks at Serenata, and so of course I said “yes please” – who doesn’t love a box of treats arriving at your door?

We let Serenata know what sorts of things we liked and asked to be surprised, and they chose to send us the Simplicity hamper, which costs £39.99.… Continue Reading “Review: Serenata Hampers – Simplicity”
Both Georgie and Lydia really enjoy yoghurts, and a little pot each is usually their normal pudding after dinner. Strawberries are Georgie’s favourite fruit, so she was excited to see the strawberry pouches! We bought one or two pouches of each type so that both girls could try each fruit flavour.
These pouches come in three flavours, raspberry, strawberry & apricot. All three were very much enjoyed by the girls, who declared them to be “yummy-delicious!”… Continue Reading “Review: Yoplait Petit Filous Pouches”
Lydia has been trialling this cup since the baby show, and she really loves it. The no spill cup lives up to it’s name and Lydia hasn’t been able to spill any, despite her best efforts.
This cup is insulated without being too heavy, and a lovely size and shape for Lydia’s little hands. She really likes this cup, and won’t share it with Georgie at all. The insulation is great for keeping milk cool on warm days, which is brilliant in this weather as our living room gets quite warm in the mornings. Lydia has definitely been drinking more milk since we got this cup, as I don’t have to worry so much about her cup of milk sitting around getting warm.… Continue Reading “Review: Tommee Tippee 12m+ Active Sippee Cup”

The blue tub is bright and cheerful, containing fruity pops, parma violets, refresher bars, love hearts, fissures, drumsticks, and double lollies – all the best Swizzels sweets (although I must confess a weakness for the new Squashies).… Continue Reading “Review: Swizzels Spring Selection tub”
