I have been thinking a lot about this the past few weeks. Why my daughter won’t have the same or similar childhood as me. Don’t get me wrong my baby is only 6 months old but it’s got me thinking already about what her life will be like as she grows older.
Firstly I want to tell you a bit about my childhood. As a child of the 80’s I grew up alongside my sisters (and later in the 90’s my little brother).
I used to have lots of fun playing around outside in all winds and weathers. Only coming in when it started to get dark. I used to play with anything we found. Not these high-tech games kids have nowadays.
My toys used to be sticks and a shovel and I would play with rocks.
I used to try to dig to Australia digging huge pits! I would make camps under the trees. Collect pieces of smooth glass, rocks and pretty pieces of pottery on the old rough ground near the old mine workings.
I came across the Little Passports subscription service through Angela over at Days in Bed. Little Passports have an Early Explorers kit, which is the one I received to review and a World Edition. They cover the ages 3-5 and 6-10 years old.
The idea behind Little Passports is to inspire your children to learn about the world around them. It’s an educational subscription box that will arrive through the mail every month.
I have really fancied the thought of having underfloor heating in my home at some stage. It’s much less obtrusive and you none of those eye sore radiators on the walls. Dust catchers I call them! The best tool to de-dust a radiator is a clean paintbrush. It gets right into all the little cracks.
Ever since I started blogging “properly” at the beginning of the year I have been toying with the idea of getting my own business card designed.
It just makes you feel more business like and important doesn’t it?
I’m not totally sure where I will give them out yet, but I’m sure I will think of something.
Anyway I was offered the chance of getting some business cards printed up by Colour Graphics in exchange for a review. I chose the 50 un-laminated double sided business card.
A while back I saw an advert on Instagram from Childs Farm who were looking for Brand Ambassador’s. As a new mummy to nearly 6 month old now, I love to find out and discover new brands that I’d not heard of. Childs Farm was one of these. I love natural products that contain no nasties or are not harsh on baby’s skin. Oh and smell nice too!
So before I applied, I looked up Childs Farm and read up on what they are about.
I’m a huge lover of flowers so you will find many of my Sunday photos will be of some type of flower I have found on my travels. This week is pink roses.
The pink roses are from my dad’s garden. They have lasted really well but are on their last legs and have the most gorgeous smell. Nature at it’s best.
It’s not a bad photo taken with my iPhone 4s if I say so myself, but I can’t wait to get a newer phone with a better camera. I need to wait until September to change my phone now as I’m changing networks. My current network seems very expensive to what I’ve found. It’s not too long to wait!
I you are all having a great weekend and hopefully have some sun where you are.
