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.

Living Arrows 14/52 [2019]

Happy Monday! We’ve had a bit of a difficult few days recently, so I’m not sure what this week is going to bring for us. Daisy and I will have a few days together though, as well as a weekend with Thomas home, which will be lovely. We are waiting for some news from the council, potentially today, that may make or break our week. I don’t want to go into all the details yet but it’s been a tough few days for sure! This weeks living arrows 14/52 post is now live!

Living Arrows 14/52 - Daisy dressed as a mermaid

This is a lower quality phone pic but just look at the happiness in Daisy’s face! It was her Birthday recently and due to chickenpox, we didn’t get to see everyone before she was contagious. Our friends came round and gave her this beautiful mermaid outfit, with a headband, that she has been absolutely loving.

Automatic enrolment pension schemes are changing (AD)

AD. When I was in my 20s my money never seemed to go far enough. I was always wanting to buy something, achieve something new or travel. Couple those things with job changes, renting a home with my husband for the first time and my pension never felt particularly important. As I reached my late 20s I started to have more available money, and think more long term about my finances. Now, as I start my 30s, I take my pension, and other savings, very seriously. I want to have money to retire and still enjoy my life. Like a lot of 30 somethings, I am looking forward to growing my family, buying our first home together and making changes to my career. I am self-employed, which means I need to make my own pension arrangements, however, I want to talk to you today about automatic enrolment, and what changes are coming this month.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #66 Meal Plan

Happy Friday! I hope the week has been a good one for you so far. I personally love meal planning and look forward to planning new meals and shopping for ingredients online each week. I love seeing what everyone is linking up and getting inspiration for my own meal plan. I’m running this weekly meal planning linky, that allows other bloggers to share their meal plans too. I hope that this will help people to find lots of inspiration, delicious recipes and maybe read some helpful blog posts about meal planning and money saving.

Review: PJ Masks HQ Rocket (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted these items in exchange for coverage. PJ Masks… Sometimes it feels like the PJ Masks theme song is the only piece of music that Alexa is allowed to play in our home. Ever since we bought Daisy a *Gekko PJ Mask to wear, £12 from Centerparcs, she has been a huge fan. Typically talking about or seeing PJ Masks on the TV leads to shouts of “Alexa, play PJ Masks!”, and not from me. Daisy loves being able to practice her dance moves and play with her PJ Masks toys too. Now we’ve got some new toys to add to the collection, with the addition of a *PJ Masks HQ Rocket and the set of *PJ Masks Moon Rovers.
