Living Arrows 47/52 – A holiday for us

We have been on holiday for the last week. We have had the most wonderful time. Our week was taken up with lots of relaxing, swimming, soaking in the hot tub at our lodge in Centerparcs and family time. Daisy got to visit Father Christmas in Santa’s Grotto and she loved it (mostly). We ate out, had good food, enjoyed lots of time together and it was just the loveliest week. I can’t wait to do it again already! This weeks living arrows 47/52 post is now live.

This is Daisy on the lead up to Santa’s Grotto where she saw Father Christmas. There were lots of fantastic little houses to see, with decorations. There was also fake snow – which Daisy LOVED! She kept telling me ‘snow Mummy!’ which was adorable!

Review: PoundToy – A website that sells £1 toys

Christmas is fast approaching. You already know this don’t you?! Well I don’t know about you but I have a blinking HUGE family to get presents for. While I have been fortunate enough to get some goodies sent to me this year, that I have put up for Christmas, there always seems to be a few more people that I haven’t got presents for yet. Or one more stocking filler that I want to buy. I was offered the chance to review PoundToy recently – a website that sells toys for just £1!

Living Arrows 46/52 – A look at our week

Last week was another fantastic one. Hooray! We’ve finally got to the bottom of what has been causing Daisy to vomit pretty much every single night. Her multi-vitamin. I know, I know, that sounds ridiculous. It turns out there is a product that is sometimes derived from dairy products, and it would seem that this time it was, and it has been making Daisy really unwell. I’m quite cross about the whole situation but really relieved that we have got to the bottom of why she has been vomiting so much. That is the main thing and hopefully means we can enjoy our holiday now – which we will be on already when you read this! This weeks living arrows 46/52 post is now live.

Daisy used to LOVE this train but now she’s really gone off of it – as you can possibly tell from her face!

How to make perfect chips in the airfryer – my airfryer chips recipe

My husband and I are always working on wasting less money these days. We have a big mission to buy a house in the next 18 months and want to put down a 50% deposit. This is no small amount as we live in the South East. We have been working to save money on takeaways and one of the ways we’ve been doing so is by eating less takeaways. I decided to make airfryer chips recently, to accompany a slow cooker kebab recipe that I’ll be writing about soon. We’ve had these a few times now and I’ve really perfected the recipe.
