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 directly to you.

Sausage actually received her first ever bunch of flowers today. Husband and I went to see her in her very first school play, where she took the esteemed role of Mary, so we thought it only fitting to present our little performer with a bouquet of her own. We opted for a small bunch of soft pink roses and she was absolutely delighted!

Christmas Celebration Bouquet

The lovely people at Serenata Flowers have some gorgeous seasonal bunches available, as well as lots of beautiful classic bouquets that would brighten anyone’s day and the good news is that they want to give one away to one lucky Mum’s the Word reader. You’ll get up to £35 to spend on the site and all you need to do is leave me a comment by the 16th December telling me which bouquet you’d choose if money were no object from the Serenata Flowers site. For an extra entry you can also tweet the following:

“I want to win with @jaynecrammond and @SerenataFlowers and you can too, just go to http://wp.me/p2oKoO-2rt to enter”

Good luck!

The giveaway is open to mainland UK readers only. Closes at midday on 16th December, winner will be chosen are random and no cash alternative will be offered.

I Love My Tassimo! #loveyourappliance

My Tassimo machine was one of those gifts that I didn’t even realise I wanted until I got it, but now, I don’t think I could live without it. Husband bought it for me for Christmas 2008, and he was nervous about his choice – being a thoroughly enlightened chap, he was worried that buying a kitchen gadget made him seem like a chauvinist, but he couldn’t have been more wrong. That machine has given me more hours of pleasure than any other. I love the fact that all I need to do it stick a cup on the front, pop in a pod and press a button, and I have coffee-shop quality drinks for a fraction of the price. I love my Tassimo

The whole family benefits now too, we often treat Sausage to some of the delicious brands of hot chocolate that Tassimo have to offer and Husband will occasionally indulge in a decaf from time to time – I don’t mind sharing my machine though! I’ve had to revive her a few times – last year, she decided to refuse to squirt the full amount of hot water out that was needed to make a drink, but after removing a few parts, cleaning them and putting her back together again, she works like new. I’ve had her for 5 years now and I’m hoping we’ll get to celebrate many more Christmases together yet.

So enamoured am I with my Tassimo machine that whilst thinking about writing this post poetry spewed forth from my fingers and heart, and I thought I’d share my poetic musings with you:

An Ode to My Tassimo

Oh Tassimo machine,
You’re always there for me
When I’m in desperate need
Or just plain greed,
Be it coffee, hot chocolate or tea.

You sit there on my counter
Looking shiny and eager and ready
At the flick of a switch
You become my bitch
Flowing forth your hotness, so steady.

I’ve been neglecting you recently,
Pregnancy and caffeine don’t mix
But as soon as I pop
I’ll be revving you up
Asking you to perform your hot, sweet tricks.

Tassimo, don’t ever leave me,
I’ll clean you more often, I swear.
Keep making your coffee,
So gorgeous and frothy
Together, we’re an unstoppable pair.

This appliance gets my seal of approval!

A Christmas Extravaganza – Two Competitions!

Every so often, I get asked to review something or do a giveaway on my blog and just recently I was offered the chance to give away a whole bundle of things, which should make Christmas a whole lot easier for one lucky Mum’s the Word reader.

Courtesy of UKMums.tv, I’ve been given 12, yes TWELVE toys to give away to one reader and the haul of goodies is as follows:

1. A Zhu Zhu Pet – These little critters are super popular at the moment and make a brilliant stocking filler for a little Zhu Zhu fan!

2. Mould and Paint Christmas – Perfect for your budding crafters, this set comes with everything you need to make and paint your own Christmas decorations.

3. Klutzy the Crab from Disney’s Club Penguin

A six-inch plush of Klutzy, from Disney’s ever-popular Club Penguin.

4. Childrens World Map Puzzleball

This one’s brilliant, not only is it a 3D puzzle, at the end of it, you end up with a fully functional rotating globe, so it’s fun, educational and stimulating all at once. (I quite want one of these for myself…!)

5. Rastamouse Talking Plush

If you’ve read this, you’ll know that we reviewed one of these a month or so ago, and Sausage loves hers! Full of songs and sayings from the show, this plush is a brilliant addition to the toy box.

6. Sylvanian Families Squirrel Family

We’ve bought Sausage a whole bunch of Sylvanian Families stuff this year because we just love it all, but the Squirrel Family is especially cute, even by Sylvanian standards!

7. Mission Earth

Not only is this family board game a great way to teach your kids how to be eco-friendly, it’s all made from recycled cardboard, contains no plastic and was invented by a group of school girls for the Young Enterprise Scheme.

8. Wild Science Face Mask Laboratory

I absolutely love this one, it’s essentially a good ol’ fashioned chemistry set, but it’s aimed at young girls and the end result of your experiments is that you’ve made some lush face masks. A brilliant way to get girls into science.

9. A Selection of Animals

We discovered Schleich toys a while back as Sausage is mad about animals I wanted her to have something like the ELC animals that my little sister used to collect. Brilliant quality and beautiful toys for girls or boys.

10. Fireman Sam Ambulance

Fireman Sam is one of the programmes that I remember from when I was a kid, it started in 1987 and it’s still going strong! This ambulance comes with a Nurse Flood figure and first aid box.

11. A 50th Anniversary Etch-a-Sketch

Speaking of things that’ve been around for a while, Etch-a-Sketch is celebrating its golden anniversary with a, well, GOLDEN Etch-a-Sketch! Create something amazing with this classic toy.

12. Morbs Ultimate Triple Pack

According to Amazon, these are “sensational ‘Ping Pong’ looking balls that instantly MORPH into fun looking fantasy characters, simply throw, roll, blast, bounce your ball… as they land they transform from small little balls into big-headed small bodied warriors and monsters”. Apparently!

So, here’s the awesome part…I have another thing to give away too!

About a month ago, I was sent one of these sensational and truly pretty Cake Pop Makers, which bakes six cake balls in four minutes. The cakes come out perfectly spherical and perfectly moist, ready for you to decorate as you wish. Sausage and I made about ten batches of these for her nursery’s Christmas fair and we decorated them with white chocolate and edible glitter, to make magical snowball cakes!

My next plan is to make chocolate balls, covered in milk chocolate and topped with a drizzle of white chocolate and fondant holly made with this to make perfect bite-sized Christmas pudding pops!

All in all, the toy bundle is worth almost £200 and the Cake Pop Maker is worth £20, so you could win yourself a seriously good haul to make the festive season that much easier.

If you want to enter, leave me a comment below telling me whether you want to win the toys, the cake pop maker or both, along with a way to contact you (email address, Twitter ID etc.).

Also, if you’d like to pop over to the Mum’s the Word Facebook page and give me a like, follow me on Twitter or subscribe by email (in the right sidebar of this page—–>), each of these will earn you a super-dooper-extra-free entry into the competition, just let me know in the comment you leave which you’ve done, if any.

Good luck, the winner or winners will be drawn next Saturday 17th December 2011 at 8pm so that I have time to post the goodies out before Christmas.
