So this weekend saw Valentine’s Day, and although Mr DaisLikeThese was away (my Valentine's gift to him was to agree that he could extend his work trip in South Africa to incorporate the England cricket match!), love was certainly in the air in our house!! At baby group earlier in the week we created LOVEly … Continue reading Happy Mondays #6 – Love is in the Air!
This week we have gone with the Valentine's Day theme for our weekly cooking session. I was one helper down as my eldest was heading to the school disco (eeeek!) but my 4yr old was a willing helper and taster! We created these brilliant heart shaped cupcakes using the magic of...wait for it...marbles!! You will need: … Continue reading Foodie Friday #5 – Valentine’s Heart Cupcakes
For over a week I have been trying to capture a lovely "yay I love food!" picture to no avail! This is baby DaisLikeThese 'enjoying' apple puree and I have a catalogue of pictures like this for every food I've tried so far. Possibly time to try baby led weaning and give her a head … Continue reading #WickedWednesdays
This time last year we had recently moved to a new area, I had resigned from my job because the journey from said new area was too tricky (with a school run in play) and I was having to drive the boys to a school in a neighbouring town as there were no places at … Continue reading Happy Mondays #5 – The Sociable Mummy
Just in time for Chinese New Year starting next week (Monday 8th February 2016) we have decided to attempt to make our own fortune cookies. The boys have been super excited to write their own messages to go inside! There were so many different variations on the recipe available online and after having a complete disaster … Continue reading Foodie Friday #4 – Super Simple Fortune Cookies
Every now and again I like to link up with the very funny #WickedWednesdays - where the real shots of family life end up (not the filtered, Insta friendly ones!). This week my 'junk modelling' obsessed 4 year old is the star of the show. And when I say junk modelling, I of course mean … Continue reading #WickedWednesdays Linky
So the time has come for me to have my little weekly moan! I am counting myself very lucky this week that the only thing going on in my life worth moaning about is baby bottles!! Here goes: So, baby DaisLikeThese is now exclusively bottle fed. Because I had, up until last week, been breast … Continue reading My Wednesday Whinge #4 – Bottles and Teats
There is nothing worse than cooking a lovely dinner for your kids, for them to just to turn around and state, in their brutal kids honesty, that "this is disgusting, I'm not eating it" Unfortunately for me, this is a fairly regular occurrence in my house, I even wrote a blog post about it! But, … Continue reading Happy Mondays #4 – That Was Yummy, Mummy!
My Facebook timeline has been flooded recently with sped-up video tutorials for simple but amazing looking recipes (apart from 'tikka breakfast naan bread' - which looked revolting!!). This Banoffee Biscuit Balls one had me salivating and as I knew the boys would be up for anything sweet, I thought as a treat we'd give it … Continue reading Foodie Friday #3 – Banoffee Biscuit Balls
This is something that I would like to dedicate a full blog to, but in the meantime I definitely need to have a little whinge on the matter! Yes, today is the day that I do a full day of formula feeding. After 5months of pretty full on breastfeeding, but not much weight gaining, we … Continue reading My Wednesday Whinge #3 – Finishing breastfeeding
