We were recently given the opportunity to review the new Sleepbear mattress. As someone who suffers from back problems, I was a little uneasy about changing from the trusty mattress we’ve had for over 8 years now…as it was the only place I was able to get comfortable when my back flared up. However, knowing that it’s recommended you replace your mattress every 8 years, we had to bite the bullet.
As you know we are big lovers of Lighthouse Clothing in this household. It’s a great way to wrap up warm and beat the Aberdeenshire weather.
This Autumn has been all about woodland walks and trying to absorb every minute of our children’s fleeting childhood. Who would have thought this year would fly by quite this quickly?! As another year draws to a close, I realise that we are getting past those ‘awkward’ baby stages as a family. You know the ones where feeds and naps run the roost and next year I’m looking forward to spending more time out of the house…making the most of the enchanted forest that’s on our doorstep and carving memories into our minds.Continue reading
It has been someone’s birthday this weekend, so we’ve been out to celebrate and where better to head for a quick bite with kids than Union Square Aberdeen. On this occasion we were headed to try out the new kids menu at the Thai streetfood place, Thaikhun. It’s always somewhere us adults had eyed up, but never even thought that it would be suitable for kids…but we were so wrong!Continue reading
We are very lucky that we stay in the foothills of one of Scotland’s most beautiful hills, surrounded by vast countryside and endless forests. Every family stroll turns into a mini adventure…think The Faraway Tree (my favourite book ever!)
Now that we are a family of 4 we wanted to include MM in our exploring. So when I was given the opportunity to test the Graco Evo XT (Rock colourway), I was excited to try out its offroad capabilities in particular.Continue reading
If you read regularly, you’ll have already seen our travel posts to France and London and spotted the Joie Brisk pushchair amongst the photos and likewise on social media.
As Munch is still 3 and we had alot of ground to cover on both trips, we were looking for a pushchair for her to relax in and take the weight off. We were also looking for a pushchair that had good capacity for luggage at the airport, or those days when we were out at the pool/beach and had extra to carry. Basically we just wanted to make both trips as child friendly as possible. London especially had the potential to be a bit of a nightmare with a 3 year old pair of legs.
