A family trip to Bluestone Wales (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted our stay in exchange for coverage. My husband and I absolutely love a holiday within the UK. It is really convenient for us to get in the car, or go on the train, and take Daisy on holiday for a week, or 5 days as we more commonly do. Daisy has FPIES, which means we require a lot of food and products to take her on holiday. Also, travel insurance is steep and bumps up the price of a holiday abroad considerably. For this reason, we have been sticking to having local (ish) holiday for the past 2 years, just so we know that we are near her hospital, and near to her team of consultants should she have a reaction and end up needing to visit the hospital. Anyway, we were recently invited to Bluestone Wales, as part of their #BluestoneBlogger campaign and we jumped at the chance – having heard that it is the Welsh version of Centerparcs!

If you’re an avid reader of mine or follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you will know that we absolutely love Centerparcs, and typically visit 3-5 times each year, with family and just the 3 of us. Anyway, this is my Bluestone Wales review and I hope it is going to be as in-depth as people seem to want it to be!

My new air purifier is helping me sleep better

I’ve got a number of health problems and as such I can struggle with my sleep at night. Being a parent to a three-year-old means I need my sleep. Really need it! I work from home full-time too. I can’t afford to be tired throughout the day as I have clients to complete work for and a home to run too. As I have a number of health problems my GP is always willing to prescribe sleeping pills, however, I thought I would try some alternative methods. I don’t want to spend my nights medicated in case my daughter needs me so I started with trying out an air purifier. I’ve now been using it for several years so decided to give this post a bit of an update!

Will an air purifier help with snoring? Will an air purifier help me sleep?

Review: Schleich Horse Club Hannah’s Guest Horses with Ruby the Dog (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted this item in exchange for coverage. Daisy was introduced to Schleich toys a few months ago when we were on a day trip to a zoo. Daisy came home with a zebra, tiger and a few other lovely little animals and she loves them. We were then sent Schleich Pony Agility Training which Daisy absolutely loved. Now we have a new Schleich toy, that is designed to be used with the Pony Agility Training and other items from the Horse Club range.

Review: Brio Cargo Transport Helicopter (33886) (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted this item in exchange for coverage. We are BIG fans of Brio toys in our home and are fortunate enough to have lots of them now. Brio toys are typically wooden, very well made and Daisy loves them. They are perfect for parents to play with little ones or for toddlers and bigger children to play independently. All of the pieces, including ones like this Brio Cargo Transport Helicopter, are designed to be used with the train sets and add another level of fun.
