EASTER 2016

It's been a long time since I just posted content from our general lives, which doesn't make much sense seeing as my blog is to document our life journey, doh! I've been meaning to talk about our Easter experience this year. Which was just amazing, last year was amazing in its own right of course it was Pennys first ever delivery from the Easter bunny. But...this year she got to experience Easter in its full glory of fun. We had countless Easter Egg hunts in the garden, even had a day in which we got to just play with our coats off in the garden with the water table out. Yes, water in the garden!


Penny was surprised with her Easter basket, not much changed there she was more interested in the shredding as she was last year! Typical ay! After she was finished making a disaster of the living room floor she got round to seeing her actual goodies in the basket! I went for more of a crafting theme this year to give us lots to do over the Easter Holiday to show her its a real occasion to celebrate and get involved in.


Around the Easter holiday I also went to a wonderful event in London with Channel Mum. The Pacmacmillan Easter Event! I spent an afternoon with so many of the lovely mummy's in the Channel Mum team, getting to know them enjoying afternoon tea, reading amazing childrens book, and again definitely talking too much! I even got to bring Penny home some books, and she adores them all. 

If you didn't know already I seem to be becoming a train professional now, I've jumped on the train 3 times now by myself for two events and a meet up with friends. Me and transport don't normally go hand in hand, and to go solo is huge for me. I'm feeling so positive about this new confidence in trains! It means i can go to events and other exciting places too!


Making full use of Pennys Easter basket we have been doing lots of crafts! We have been trying to learn using glue. Sticking things down and creating out own amazing picture, the downside is Penny gets really mad that we are putting things over what she thinks it white paint. She doesn't quite understand it yet. So we'll just pretend it paint for a while longer. maybe ill buy a britt stick or something and see if that works.


 Its been a truly memorable Easter for our family, one we enjoyed so so much together. Seeing Penny starting to see the magic of it all is so exciting to me. It melts my heart. I know next year she will be even more involved and it will only becoming more magical.



I hope you all had a great Easter too, next up CHRISTMAS!? Don't choke I'm only pulling you leg.

Double Sided Flip Mop & Upright Sweep Set | Spring Cleaning Recap With OXO

It's no longer Spring cleaning week I know but alas it is still Spring and I have been cleaning...does that count to save my skin? My little family have all been struck down with horrible colds, sore throats, conjunctivitis and other such issues between us. We've been struggling all last week and over Easter Weekend. Its been a rough time to say the least. Note I couldn't actually put into words how bad its been as opening my mouth is real agony. So just imagine my exaggerated expression by 'rough'.

Although all ill, I have been cleaning to keep myself busy over the last week. We have tried out the following products to get our kitchen floor sparkling clean:

Upright Sweep Set £30.00
This has to be one of my favourite products I've discovered from OXO! Your thinking its just a sweep set? Yes, it is but there's alot to this set that makes my life so much easier countless times a day. This set has a full size broom, and extendable handle, a locking system to stand it upright to store away. A teeth comb to brush the broom through to remove any excess dirt. It has a flexible lip so you don't get tiny crumbs and dust going past the pan and going underneath when you sweep. Its fantastic. I don't have to hunt for my broom and then my old dust pan set, its all in one and by far a much quicker easier use. I hugely recommend this product.

Double Sided Flip Mop £25.00
One side is microfiber and the other a foam scrubbing surface, The soft side of the mop can be used on all surfaces, and the other is perfect for ceramic tiles. I personally like to use the scrubbing side to get any tough spots off the floor and the like to go over it with the soft side of the mop to finish with. I just feel that way it will be as clean as can be. Its really east to use, you push down a handle which squeezes out the mop of any excess water and then your ready to go. The handle isnt at all stiff or fiddly to manage as I've had mops where they have been so stiff in this respect. No trouble here though, it does a superb job. The sponges are easily replaceable as they attach via velcro which again is super handy.






Have you tried any of the OXO cleaning products? I definitely think you should look into it after trying out their range.
