New parents have so much to think about from morning ‘til night. Getting your little one dressed, fed and entertained is a chore in itself — but what if there were gadgets out there to help you steal a few minutes of relaxation? Whether you have a young child already or are still expecting your little one, we’ve put together a list of the top time-saving gadgets available to help you juggle parenthood:
As a child I loved visiting my grandparents. It was, to use the Danish word ‘hyggelig’. We stay for a couple of hours, got to eat as many chocolate biscuits as we could fit in which came from a bottomless biscuit tin! we even got to drink tea (mine usually had about 9 spoonfuls of sugar in it!) And if we were very lucky we were given some pocket money as we left, £2! Which, (and I sound so old writing this) was a lot of money back then. I have so many fond memories from those visits, and I am really glad that my daughter has the chance to have an even closer relationship with her grandparents.
There is nothing more exciting in our house than when a new book comes out, especially when it’s one by your favourite author. And I can safely say that Julia Donaldson is my daughter’s favourite author. So when I heard about The Ugly Five I just knew we had to add it to our collection.
We are huge fans of all things books and reading in our house, (that will come as no surprise to my regular readers). And it’s no secret that I have a special place in my heart for personalised books, so as you can imagine I adore the personalised bookshelf collection from Tidy Books. They are just gorgeous aren’t they? Read More…
I am currently living in a very battered pair of patent pink Dr. Martens. They are the fourth pair of DMs I have owned and I have worn each pair in to the ground. They are so comfy, and what’s even better now that I need specialised orthotics is that they are great for them too. Sadly I can only wear flat shoes now, which is a shame as I have lots of pairs of ridiculous shoes which I will never wear. Wonderful shoes I know I will never be able to part with, including a pair of Irregular Choice stilettos in baby blue with ice creams and unicorns on.
