Mr Kipling Tea Set Review from Casdon

One of baby girl’s first phrases was “cup of tea?” So being asked to share our thoughts on the Mr Kipling Tea Set was perfect! I’m a huge fan of Mr Kipling’s cakes, French Fancies being my favourite although Cherry Bakewells come a close second. Mmmm shame I don’t have any in the kitchen cupboard at the moment!

Product Description

Everyone adores Mr Kipling’s cakes! Featuring replicas of the much-loved cakes including French Fancies, Battenberg and Cherry Bakewells for arranging on the two-tiered cake stand. Each cake features a shaped bottom for children to locate the correct corresponding shape on the easily assembled cake stand – so not only is it a fantastic role play toy, it has shape-sorting fun too!

It’s Time To Rhyme! Picture Book Collection from The Book People

Everyday baby girl is learning so much about books, she has now started to use her finger and pointing along as we read. She will also pick up a picture book at random times and I can see her concentrating as she’s looking through it.

When we were asked to have a browse through The Book People’s website and choose a book from their “Hand -picked Picture Book Selection” I thought about getting her some fun rhyming books. The hand-picked selection has many books to choose from. You have the likes of the Julia Donaldson picture book collection as well as old favourite MOG. In fact there is something for everyone’s tastes.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide On A Budget

I will be starting Maternity leave in a couple of weeks and we all know that maternity pay isn’t that great. I will be thinking of ways to budget the money we have coming in and making it go that little further. That said there is always some kind of special day, birthday or holiday coming up, so making those pennies stretch further is a must.

B&M Stores gave me a challenge to go shopping in our local store to see what ideas I could come up with for Mother’s Day. I decided to have a good hunt around and see what lovely bargains I could find to use as gifts for Mother’s Day.

Treatbox Review: Do you deserve a treat?

I’m a busy working mum, with little time for myself. So when Treatbox got in contact asking if I would like to try out one of their monthly Treatboxes I thought why not? I think I deserve a treat every now and again. Plus I have a sweet tooth!

The great thing about Treatbox is that it arrives straight through into your letterbox. You can choose from different selections, such as chocolate lovers, candy lovers, sweet shop, liquorice lovers, Treatbox full of bars and a Belgian chocolate selection.

Living Arrows 8/53 (2018)

Welcome back to our little weekly round-up of Living Arrows 8/53 (2018). I’m enjoying getting into the routine of sharing a little bit of our life and how my gorgeous 2 year old is growing away so fast!

You can catch up on last week’s post here : Living Arrows 7/53.

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”

 

Living Arrows 8/53 (2018)

This week, we haven’t had the chance to get out much due to the typical Cornish weather and my work shifts. I’ve only got 2 more weeks of work left now before maternity leave so we will be out and about more soon!

The photo above of baby girl is one her dad took of her and sent to me while I was at work. She is such a cutie, trying to stifle a laugh I’m sure!

She has been watching some episodes of teletubbies this week. It’s her new favourite show. She dances to the TV when they are on, going Tubbie bye byes, Tubbie bye byes! Then when it finishes bursts into tears! She is growing up so fast now and beginning to realise things more.

My darling sensitive girl. x

 

Thanks for stopping by today.
