Our day out at Malpas with Aldi

We love to go out for walks and have a day out around our favourite place Malpas, Truro down here in Cornwall. So when we were invited to take part with the Aldi #MamiaDaysOut challenge we knew exactly where we were going to go for a little picnic.

On Friday the sun was shining and the blue sky was out so we decided to go for a little picnic before our Baby Sensory class. Although it was fairly cold, well I suppose it is Autumn, it was a gorgeous day.

The Gotrovo Treasure Hunt Game Review

During my hunt on Twitter for items to add to my Christmas Gift Guide list, the lovely people at Gotrovo contacted me asking if I would like to review their treasure hunt game.

Ever since I was a kid I have loved treasure hunts. you could always find me and my older sister out hunting for treasures as kids around the old rough mine areas where we lived. We used to find old bits of pottery, old coins and pieces of fool’s gold.

So you can imagine the big kid inside me getting all excited over the chance to review a treasure hunt game!

Tips on becoming that Ideal Parent

I’m relatively new to parenting as you know, so I have been reading lots of different articles on how to become the ideal parent. Baby girl is 7 months old and we have now started to use the word ‘no’ with her to start introducing those boundaries. When you say no to her she will stop what ever she’s doing and look up. I feel as if she is listening.

Growing up my mum and dad taught us all about good manners and to be polite. It doesn’t cost anything to be polite.

Here are some good manners to teach your kids.

Simple phrases for young kids to start learning.
