Today I took the doggies for a walk in-between rain showers, in their new warm coats. They looked so cute and they matched. Some children walked past us with their teacher and they all said “ah” as they walked past. That hasn’t happened for a long time. I was glad to be inside and cosy today, it’s been very windy.
As many of you know, I love The Body Shop, fabulous products that are cruelty free to animals. They are very kind and share fabulous offers and promotions with me each week. This could be anything from instore/online offers, money off deals, specific product and seasonal promotions. In the run up to Christmas I thought it would be a perfect thing to share with my readers. Make the most out of the offers and get your Christmas shopping done with a little bit of money saved.
After we school we went to Great Grandmas and the kiddies have their tea. They absolutely love it because Grandma delivers their tea on soft cushioned trays, with pots for their ketchup and special glasses for their milk. They are treated like royalty. It’s all about routine. They know what to expect and in a way that makes them calm and happy.
I couldn’t help but sing have a Mary Berry Christmas to myself when I started writing this review. I have really missed Mary Berry in Great British Bake Off this year, so seeing this new range cheered me up. I Just Love It have a personalised Mary Berry collection with everything from mugs to bread bins. Everything for the bake off/baking fan this Christmas.
Today we had a busy day, Tuesday’s seem to be hectic at the moment: forest school after school club, home for 10 minutes to eat and get changed and then off to Rainbows. The kiddies ended up coming back home and eating another dinner with Mummy & Daddy. The kiddies have been making swings at forest school. You can see them scattered all around the school grounds.
I spend lots of money each year decorating the Christmas gifts, I want them to look perfect. So I will buy wrapping paper, pretty string and ribbons, bows and Kraft tags to decorate myself too. I have great plans for my Cricut machine again this year, so I can get crafty with some of the wrapping. But I started to think about how I can reduce the costs and still be happy with my creations.
When you plan a party, you want it to be flawless. What are the important aspects of a successful party, have you wondered? The most important factor is that a party should be making happy memories for guests and hosts to remember for a long time to come, or in some cases (like a wedding) even for life! A Professional DJ can help this become a reality! Delectable spreads of eatables are surely a huge attraction. But would guests eat all the time? Of course not! Herein comes the entertainment factor. And the soul and life of an entertainment programme is usually a DJ.
If you have someone to buy for and you are not quite sure what beauty regime they have, or whether they have a favourite brand. A great option is grab a kit that has small versions, so they can test it and then buy the larger products. Pure Beauty have this “Dermalogica favourites kit” which is perfect for trialling. Read below for my recommended daily regime…
Today was our normal Monday routine: school, work and Noah has beavers. Curry’s repair came out to fix our dishwasher, it was a 7:30am call out. I couldn’t believe how early it was. I did some work on Hubby’s website this evening and little Rambo snuggled up with me and I couldn’t resist a photo.
We went to Toys R Us this morning, it was great fun. The children were so well behaved. The plan was to take photos of all of the things they wanted to add to their Christmas list – they did! No begging for toys, I was so impressed. Isla came home and she had a list of 35 items on her list. Santa will need a new sleigh this year.
