Movie of the week!

On Friday morning in the rush to get out the door Joseph and Daddy walked into our bedroom to the tune of an oh so familiar tune. Clutching Daddy's phone Joseph climbed on to the bed and started to bounce as he shouted "DOG, DOGGY". I soon realised he was watching Netflix and two of my favourite characters! Wallace and Gromit!

This week's movie of the week is Wallace and Gromit - The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.

Book of the week!

This week's book of the week is the kind of book I like, as not only is it a push, pull and slide book but it's also a board book. I especially like board books as it means you don't need to have eyes in your backside when the little darlings are looking at them!

This week's book of the week is Busy Fire Station!

Super bright and colourful it shows the hive of activity of a fire station. As the alarm sounds the firemen rush to those in need. Pull the tab and they whiz down the pole.

The fire engine makes it way through the busy traffic and you see it over take the cars as you pull the tab.

There's also added questions on each page, like how many helmets can you see and what colour is the fire engine, making the book a little interactive as you read through it.

At £2.99 Busy Fire Station is a bargain and a great little board book for your collection, especially if they are obsessed with 'nee-naws' like Joseph currently is!

Ours was a gift from Granny but you can get a copy from Amazon.

A Healthy Mummy Update!

This week has been surprisingly harder than the first and I have struggled a lot. 

The medication I've been given feels like it is making its way into my system but is making me exhausted. I have tried though to busy myself to avoiding dropping to sleep in the day but then find myself wide awake at night.

The end of the week was a bit of a struggle at work. At times it was a fight to keep my eyes open but within this there was a small achievement. Normally you see I'd have necked coffee to keep me going but I didn't. I'm sticking to what the GP said and am giving it a wide berth! My boss may have started singing to check if I was awake or not as I sat with my head back 'looking at the ceiling'.

On the upside my memory has improved slightly and I suddenly remembered on Friday that I was meant to be doing the Brownie meeting on Monday! With hubs out all day on Saturday meaning no car and Mother's Day on Sunday this threw me into a panic. Usually I'd have felt physically sick and had no idea what to do but I managed to control my anxiety and buy most of what I needed on my lunch break. Phewwwwww.

The healthy eating has continued and like last week I am super happy to say I've had a loss!

Book of the week!

This week's book of the week is a little different! It's not an actual book of sorts as its an app which brings lots of books to you in one go!

Sharpie Mugs!

Sharpie mugs are one of those things you see a lot of on Pinterest when looking for homemade gift ideas but I've always been a bit dubious of how they'd turn out. On trying them I've found they are actually super easy to do and really effective!
