Win A Bouquet from Serenata Flowers

Win A Bouquet from Serenata Flowers

I’m sorry, I know I’m a walking cliché, but I really do love receiving flowers. They brighten up a room and make me feel special, which is something that everyone should feel from time to time. I’m not one-sided though, Sausage and I have been known to buy Husband flowers to brighten up his office – flowers shouldn’t be gender restricted as far as we’re concerned! For readers in Australia, Flowers Across Sydney can deliver flowers …

Mini Pupstars iPad App Review

Mini Pupstars iPad App Review

Recently, we were asked to download and review Mini Pupstars, the interactive iPad app for kids. The name alone was enough to let me know that it would definitely be worth a look for my animal-crazy five year old, so this weekend we set about finding our way around the app. These videos show you what it’s all about: The app, which is basically a virtual dog grooming parlour, allows kids to give their chosen …

Easy and Inexpensive Christmas Papercrafts

Easy and Inexpensive Christmas Papercrafts

I must admit, although I like the look of the pristinely decorated, highly co-ordinated Christmas trees and decorations that you see on telly and in department stores, my style at home is a little more…well, homely. As I mentioned in this post, each year Sausage and I make a new set of decorations to add to our collection and my hope is that by the time I’m old and grey, I’ll have a full set …

Our Liverpool Experience and Little Livers/Mighty Red Giveaway

Our Liverpool Experience and Little Livers/Mighty Red Giveaway

It’s been a while since I posted the first part of our Liverpool Football Club experience but needless to say it’s all still fresh in our minds. I won’t follow up with a full-on match report, but suffice to say seeing Luis Suarez score his first home hat-trick was an unbelievable experience! The atmosphere during the match was like nothing I’ve ever encountered before – you can genuinely feel the excitement crackle in the air …

Brightening Up a Kids Room

We’ve recently been on a mission to give Sausage a Big Girl’s Room; we’ve been upgrading her furniture by replacing hers with some beautiful girls bedroom furniture online, starting by swapping her canvas wardrobe with a smart, 3-door white one with lots of shelves and hanging spaces, as well as getting her a proper wooden desk and pink swivel chair to replace her old plastic toddler desk and adding various storage solutions to the room. All of …

Christmas Craft – Woollen Baubles

Christmas Craft – Woollen Baubles

Every year, Sausage and I make a new set of decorations for the tree, just about a dozen or so to add to the current collection and each year I try to do something different with her. Last year we made some plaster of Paris models which she painted and the year before was salt dough, but this year I wanted something completely different. My good friend Jamillah posted one of her Pinterest finds on …

My Post-Baby Body

My Post-Baby Body

Written in collaboration with LA Fitness I never thought I’d say this but pregnancy has actually helped me to lose weight. Being diabetic and pregnant means that I have to keep a close eye on what I eat and although I’m not making a conscious effort to ‘diet’, my sensible eating has meant that rather than gaining baby weight, I’ve actually managed to lose some. It’s made me realise that once the baby is here, …
