Living Arrows 25/53 – Daisy finds a love for soft toys again

I’m sure other parents would agree with me that your children just seem to grow up SO fast. Daisy is already 2, and a few months and I feel like she is changing every single day. Every week, on a Sunday, I have a clean and de-clutter of her toys, and I’m always surprised by the sheer amount of toys she no longer seems interested in. We’ve been quite strict with donating toys once she outgrows them but there are some items that I just can’t seem to bring myself to get rid of, as I hope that she will grow back into using them.

Living Arrows 25/53 - Daisy playing with Makka Pakka

We’ve got a toy hammock in our bedroom, where we store all of the lovely soft toys that Daisy receives as gift or chooses when we let her buy a gift for herself on a day trip or holiday. There are maybe 70-80 soft toys now and last week, each morning, when Daisy woke up I asked her if she wanted to choose a soft toy to play with. I was pleasantly surprised to see her choosing Iggle Piggle, Makka Pakka and Tickle Me Elmo. It was a nice start to our morning, lifting Daisy up and allowing her to feel involved with choosing a toy to play with for the morning.

Review: In The Night Garden Live

Daisy is a HUGE fan of In The Night Garden. When I saw that there was a live show, In The Night Garden Live, I knew that she would absolutely love it. I wasn’t wrong! We recently headed off to the O2, to the In The Night Garden Live showdome, to enjoy the show. This is our In The Night Garden Live review – hope you enjoy it!

In The Night Garden Live - The showdome

Doors opened 30 minutes before the In The Night Garden Live show started, giving us time to buy snacks and drinks, choose toys or books and get to our seats. The seating arrangement is really relaxed, with large seating areas, with benches. You’re able to sit anywhere you want, and there are rows 1-5, for premium ticket holders, and rows 6-13, for standard ticket holders. Personally, I felt that there were great seats wherever you sit. This was fantastic, especially if you were quite late to arrive, as you didn’t have to sit somewhere where you would miss the show.

Celebrate 90 years of Swizzels and share your sweetest invention

The lovely people at Swizzels are celebrating their 90th Birthday this year. 90 whole years of delicious sweets. Yum! I’m partial to a few Swizzels sweets, with a drumstick lolly being one of my favourites. The Drumstick is iconic for me and I absolutely love one of those little sticks of deliciousness. Even if I do have a mild fear about one of my teeth falling out after I’ve chilled them in the fridge. Swizzels, who sent me a bundle of sweets to enjoy, wanted to let me know about their ‘share your sweetest invention’ competition – so I could share with you naturally!
