Snuggle Time with Winnie the Pooh Plush Range and Friends

The Snuggle Time Winnie the Pooh Plush range is adorable. I have been a huge Pooh fan since I was little. I even used to play Pooh Sticks all the time. To be given the chance to view our thoughts on the new Snuggle Time Winnie the Pooh Plush range is an awesome opportunity.

Winnie the Pooh is a fictional teddy bear created by one of the best well-known authors A. A Milne. Winnie the Pooh was named after A. A Milnes son Christopher Robin’s teddy bear. As well as his other toys Eeyore, Piglet, Tigger, Roo and Kanga who all make an appearance in the books.

Posh Paws Winnie the Pooh and Friends

The Snuggle time Winnie the Pooh collection from Posh Paws has been made especially for little ones to snuggle. Each character is soft, chunky and floppy, with delicately toned colours, perfect for cuddles.

The Snuggle Time collection comes in Small, medium (12 inch) and large sizes.

Living Arrows 5/53 (2018)

Here we are on week 5 of Living Arrows. You can catch up on last week’s post here : Living Arrows 4/53.

The idea behind Living Arrows is to celebrate childhood. It’s name is taken from a poem by Kahlil Gibran,

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

The week started off pretty well, baby girl has been picking up lots of phrases and words. She recognises her favourite cartoon characters and goes around calling out Skye, Marshall, Gekko, Owlette! It’s so cute!

From Friday onwards and all weekend she has had a terrible cold and sore throat. She seems to have inherited the way a cold comes out in her from me. Whenever I get a cold I suffer with runny eyes and sore throat. Bless her she’s much better now, but Friday night she wouldn’t stay upstairs and wanted to come down to the living room. My husband and I stayed up with her most of the night comforting her as she was being sick and full of snot. I had about 3 hours sleep before I had to get ready for work at 5am.

Being 28 weeks pregnant and having to work a full day on just 3 hours sleep was challenging. I kept telling myself you are getting prepared for the sleepless nights when the new baby arrives! I kept myself going on chocolate, chips and cheese toasties at work!

Here is a photo of baby girl earlier in the week before the horrible cold arrived, her new favourite thing is to tip her toy basket up and sit on it, that’s when she isn’t trying to get in it!

Thrifty Thursday: Cashback Rewards with Checkout Smart

Welcome back to Thrifty Thursday. Last time I shared with you one of my favourite money-saving apps called Shopmium. This week I’m sharing another app called Checkout Smart. This app is all about claiming cash back on your everyday items while you are shopping. A good tip is to have the app open while you are going around the shops so you can scroll through the offers.

Some of the products are free, whereas others are money back. Checkout Smart works in a similar way to Shopmium in that you must keep the receipt and upload it to the app when you have bought the item. The excellent feature of Checkout Smart is that it has a filter option so you can select which shop or supermarket you are in and only show the relevant products to that shop.
