What’s in my hospital bag for baby number 2?

This past week I’ve been busy packing my hospital bag. You can catch up here with what I packed first time around.

Second time around I’ve learnt a few things. Don’t just pack sleepsuits for 0-3 months otherwise your baby will look like she’s wearing a sack! In fact last time I didn’t even buy new baby clothes they were all 0-3 months. She did grow into them though. I’ve invested in sleepsuits from Next which have the turn over cuffs for baby hands. Much better than having separate little scratch mitts which I kept losing.

How You Can Show Support for Muslim Friends in Ramadan

Ramadan is fast approaching and that means that many of our friends, colleagues or family members will begin observing the Islamic holy month, which sees Muslims fasting during daylight hours. This year, Ramadan begins on or around Tuesday 15th May 2018 and comes to an end on or around Thursday 14th June 2018.

The fast begins at dawn and ends at sunset every day, during which time those practicing will abstain from food and drink amongst other acts. Muslims will eat breakfast in the early hours of the morning and enjoy a meal in the evening once the day has turned to night.

They have put together a brand new Disney range exclusively for Tesco that launched in store and online on the 11th April.

Living Arrows 15/53 (2018)

Welcome back to our little weekly round-up of Living Arrows 15/53 (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 14/53.

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”
