Are you a fan of Star Wars? We are pretty big fans in this house! My husband absolutely loves the franchise, and I’m a bit of a fan too if truth be told. Plush toys are something that we love in our home, and even Daisy has a toy hammock filled with them! We’ve had lots of lovely items from Posh Paws in the past and now we have the Posh Paws Chewbacca collection to share with you!
Half-term is rapidly approaching! It is NEVER too early to make plans, to help the half-term period run more smoothly for your family. If you’re located in, or near, to Essex I want to share with you how you can entertain the whole family under one roof this half-term – and beyond! This is a collaborative post with The Meadows Shopping Centre in Chelmsford as I want to share the great ways you can entertain your family this half-term.
The Meadows Shopping Centre is located in Chelmsford and is easily accessible from London, Hertfordshire and Essex too. It’s just a 5-10 minute walk from the train station which is absolutely fantastic. The Meadows Shopping Centre is home to a variety of shops, restaurants and even a cinema! You really can entertain your whole family this half-term under one roof!
For us, we don’t get to eat out lots, because Daisy has such severe allergies. However, with careful planning, we are able to enjoy a nice meal together when Daisy is having a nap. Giraffe offers a delicious menu for the whole family, and Wildwood is delightful for younger children in particular with lots of pizza and pasta dishes on the menu. Later in the day, when you want a break from shopping and entertainment, you can enjoy a nice Millie’s Cookie or even order a personalised large cookie as a gift to a loved one or even yourself. I love to enjoy a nice Costa when I’m out shopping! Continue reading
Being organised makes a HUGE difference in our day to day life. Every week, on a Sunday, I sit down and I work out what we are going to eat for the week and make a shopping list. My lovely husband does the shopping and then I look at the engagements we have on our calendar for the next week. Meal planning is a God send for us! Today I’m sharing the Meal Planning Linky Week #20. This linky is hosted by myself, Katykicker, and Naomi from The Organised Life Project. We LOVE meal planning and want to invite you to join us in sharing your meal plan and keeping yourself motivated.
I’m a big fan of using my slow cooker, and of having a big variety of dinners in our meal planning repertoire. From time to time we like to mix it up, with some easier dinners, that are delicious and yet don’t take long to cook. For nights like this, we love a sausage based dinner. Sausage and mash, toad in the hole, sausage cassoulet, sausage, chips & beans – the list goes on! Recently I was invited to London, by Richmond, to find out more about their new Richmond chicken sausages – which have 20% less calories and 30% less fat but still taste good!
My husband and I are lovers of eating out, however, as our daughter Daisy has FPIES, and a large array of allergies, we don’t get out as much as we would like to. Recently, while in the Harvey Centre Harlow we decided to pop into the Burger Priest Harlow on a bit of a whim.
We started off our trip to Burger Priest Harlow with these delicious milkshakes. They were made with real ice cream and there were lots of lovely flavours to choose from. Thomas went for a strawberry one and I had chocolate. Mine had lots of lovely chocolate pieces inside and was delicious! I’m not really a fan of strawberry but I had a little sips of Thomas’ and it tasted fresh and not artificial at all.
