U is for...

U is for...

We were challenged by the team at Innocent to come up with a picture for the letter U. I have to say it was a bit of a struggle. At one point, I even contemplated clambering over the wall at the end of the field to see if I could get a close up of one of the cow's udders. Luckily for you, I decided against it! So, what did I pick (with the help of my children)? Well, U is for...

Meeting Elmo at the Furchester Hotel.

Back in May we were invited to an amazing event at Cbeebies HQ in Manchester. We were shown around the set of the Furchester Hotel, which is a new show set to air on Friday September 26th at 5pm. I was brought up watching Sesame Street and The Muppet Show and my children have the box sets and enjoy watching the classic episodes. It is fair to say that I was really rather excited!

Embrace every moment #PowerofSoft

Fairy are asking parents to embrace every moment with their children. Enjoying cuddles with them whilst they are the softest they will ever be. This made me really think about my beautiful children when they were small. I used to adore those cuddly moments with them, snuggling them close and breathing in their wonderful baby smell.

Goodbye Grandma.

As many of you know, my grandma had been very ill, battling with terminal cancer. She sadly passed away at the end of August, with my sister by her bedside. Here is what I am reading today, at her funeral.

I have many recollections of holidays up in Yorkshire with grandma when I was a child. One particular year she played BonyM non-stop in her car. I still remember all the words to those hits and I did burst into tears in the car the other week when I heard Ma Baker. Not a song I thought I would ever cry listening to.

My husband and I moved to Yorkshire when we married, in this church, in 2003. Part of the reason for relocating to Yorkshire was to be close to my grandma, who had always played a huge role in my life.

When grandma and my husband first met, neither of them understood what each other was saying. However, not wanting to be rude, neither of them admitted that they couldn't understand each other and they simply muddled through until they were used to the different accents. I think this speaks volumes about the kind of people they both are, not wanting to offend the other. They then settled into a happy relationship which consisted mainly of them taking the mickey out of each other, although grandma pretty much always had the last word! A few weeks before she died she surprised us all with an exceptionally fast, sharp and witty comment aimed directly at my husband!

Jus Rol Review

We were recently sent some vouchers to try out some Jus Rol products. It took a little longer than I expected to get to try them, due to the amount of care I have had to give my Grandma. With the arrival of my mum to care for Grandma, it meant that I was able to get baking, and spend some quality time with my children.
