This week sees my 3rd blogiversary. I cannot believe I have been blogging for three years now. It’s like they say, time flies when you are having fun! I’ve grown my following to over 14k in that time. It may not seem a lot to many over three years but you have to bear in mind that I’ve been working full-time during that time and had a baby girl. It’s my achievement and I’m very proud of myself.
In the past year, I have worked really hard and grown my little blog business to earn my family a part-time wage. It has helped us to save money for things for the new house we moved into last June. It has given us many opportunities to try new things we couldn’t afford if I didn’t blog. Plus we have a little holiday coming up in September to review for the blog. It’s somewhere we wouldn’t have thought to go if I wasn’t blogging!
I’m looking forward to what the next year brings us!
Thanks for popping by and reading, I love to read all your comments. It brightens up my day.

I love shopping haul challenges. When I was given the chance to head over to the PoundToy website with a £50 voucher to spend on their website I was eager to see what I could get for my money. I know the website is called PoundToy, but don’t let this confuse you. Of course some toys are £1 and even less, but most are over £1. The prices are still rock bottom though, and very competitive with high street and other online toy stores.
Plus most of the items are branded toys. If you are looking for birthday and Christmas gifts and are on a budget, this website is for you. They also have a great party supplies section – everyone in one place!
Today I’m on the blog tour for Mr Shaha’s Recipes for Wonder by Alom Shaha. It’s a great fun book, full of things to do with bits and bobs around the home.
Why does the …? What is …? How does …?
Don’t worry if you don’t know the answers, you soon will!
Every child can be a scientist with the help of Mr Shaha and his recipes for wonder!
I have used a steamer saucepan set that you use on the hob, but never tried an electric steamer. When I was asked to share my thoughts on the Sensio Steamer I was eager to try it out.
Steaming food is much healthier than frying and you don’t lose the goodness out of the food like boiling. It works by continuously boiling water, releasing steam that thoroughly cooks the food in the baskets above without the use of extra oils or fats. This also retains vitamins and nutrients and makes it a far healthier choice than frying or roasting.
We worked with Wicked Uncle back in 2016 on a challenge post with them and it was such great fun! This year we are simply writing a review on a toy we have chosen to look at. Which happens to be a fantastic little wooden railway train set.
A little about Wicked Uncle
Wicked Uncle gave us the opportunity to select toys to review with a £40 voucher. I love how their site is divided into age categories plus boys and girls toys. Yes I know some people find it wrong to have boys and girls toys and they should be gender neutral or whatever, but I grew up with girls and boys toys and so did my generation and we are alright!
