Keepsake Blanket | Turn old baby clothes into a momento

Keepsake Blanket | Turn old baby clothes into a momento

A good way to make it easier to let go of those cute baby-grows that your once newborn baby has grown out of is to make them into a keepsake blanket. There is no denying that we all fall in love with a few items of clothes (blokes included, don’t try be all macho on me now fellas). When it comes to getting rid of them it can tug on the heart strings, probably moreso with your firstborn as it’s a new…

Little Dish Toddler Meals | Proper Food For Kids | Review

Little Dish Toddler Meals | Proper Food For Kids | Review

A struggle for us as working parents with a child in nursery is making sure that she eats well (PG that is, not the wife – though she’s important too!). The daily routine feels crazy sometimes. Up at 6.30am, out of the door at 7.10am. Get to nursery at 7.30am and onto the office for 8am (if I’m lucky). Coming home I usually get to nursery around 5.10pm and then get home with PG around 5.45pm. If traffic is hell it can easily…

Parking in Parent and Child Spaces – The Bees Knees of Car Parks

Parking in Parent and Child Spaces – The Bees Knees of Car Parks

Parking in supermarket car parks used to involve a long walk to the door. Not anymore folks, as long as that child is in the car with you and there’s space you can get right on the front row. All that extra space means you can drive in forwards with ease. The days of arsing about worrying you’re going to scrape the car next to you are gone. It is so exciting you will want to take the kids with you whenever you…

Baby Ballet Wakefield West & Kirklees Review

It’s been aggeeees since I last wrote (more on this later). Sorry not sorry. Wifey and PG are out shopping and I’m sat “lazing around” so thought I’d put fingers to keyboard and try and get something out. Our latest weekly sign-up – Baby Ballet – absolutely needs a special mention, because it’s bloody brilliant. Baby Ballet For 3 months or so at the latter end of 2017, we signed PG up to a gymnastics class. She loved it for…

Magnetic Kitchen Door Catches by Calish – Review

Magnetic Kitchen Door Catches by Calish – Review

Anyone who is subjected to a small child running around your kitchen will know all too well how much of a pain in the arse they like to be. Turn your back for a second and suddenly all the pots and pans are (hopefully) carefully positioned at random points around the room. If you’re really unlucky you get sugar, cereal or other edible stuff tipped all over the floor too. The solution? Cupboard catches. We put this off for way too long. Frustration…

East Riddlesden Hall – A National Trust Day Out

East Riddlesden Hall – A National Trust Day Out

Before Christmas Wifey and I decided we wanted to make sure we got out of the house at weekends as PG loves the outdoors and it’s important she gets her exercise, so we signed up for National Trust membership. If you would have asked me when I was 12 about National Trust I would have probably said it was rubbish as old houses didn’t (and to be honest still don’t) interest me particularly. There’s LOTS of outdoor stuff to do though,…
