Daisy is ten months old – another month has passed!

I say this time and time again I know but wow – another month! Daisy has already been here for almost a year and I can hardly believe it sometimes. My tiny baby has been replaced with a little tornado. She whirls through the day creating mess, and noise, displacing objects but reminding me how grateful I am to be alive! Daisy is ten months old and this is what she has been up to for the past month:

Great teething products – ones that Daisy loves

Any parent will know that teething can be horrible! Between the crying, the sleepless nights and the pain itself our poor babies really go through the mill. Fortunately as adults we can’t remember the pain of teething! I do remember my wisdom teeth trying to come through, in my mid 20s, and the subsequent pain I experienced. Because of this I want to try and do my best for my daughter. I love to use some of these great teething products and thought I’d share them with you on the off chance I might be able to help someone else too!

Great teething products - Daisy's favourite picks!

Lee Stafford CoCo LoCo Hairdryer review

I’ve got the frizziest hair ever. Or at least that is how it feels. My hair is a blinking nightmare! If I don’t use Frizz Ease shampoo and Frizz Ease straightening spray (or 3 day straight) it looks atrocious. I look like I’ve not bothered to brush my hair to be frank. Using a hairdryer, and straighteners, is part of my regular routine. I was offered the chance to try out this Lee Stafford CoCo LoCo Hairdryer (available here) I could hardly say no! Anything that could improve the appearance of my hair is well worth it for me. You can grab it next day with a free Amazon Prime trial too if that takes your fancy.

Our 2017 Bucket List – Lots of fun ahead for us!

My lovely husband and I had an up and down year in 2016. First my Mum was in a coma, and almost died. Then I almost died when our daughter arrived and it was a long recovery after my c-section. Then my friend found out she had womb cancer. To top it all off my Dad passed away from cancer – all in the first six months of the year. Daisy was poorly, my father-in-law too and in all we had a rough first six months. The second half of the year did see a vast improvement. Anyway, 2017 could be another up and down year, who knows. To celebrate a new year, and being alive I have created a 2017 bucket list. This is full of lovely things that I want to enjoy with my family.

Target archery at Centerparcs – Elveden Forest

My family are regular visitors to Centerparcs. We enjoy holidays there at least 2 or 3 times a year. The convenience of holidaying just 1 hour from home just cannot be beaten for us! This is partly thanks to matched betting. I’ve been able to book lots of lovely breaks recently. Also, my Mum is generous too and is taking us away again in just a few months. We have taken part in a number of awesome activities at Centerparcs over the last few years and we do something different each time. One such activity was this.. Target archery at Centerparcs!
