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.

Cirque Du Hilarious Review - Blackpool

We were recently invited to see Cirque Du Hilarious in Blackpool. I was really looking forward to a day out with my children. They’ve had a tough time since we moved to live with my Grandma because they are expected to be very quiet. I’ve spent a lot of time keeping them out of the house. A trip to Blackpool was exactly what we needed.

Making Raspberry and Basil Jam - and getting the stains out with Persil

We were recently sent some fantastic jam making products by Persil. They arrived just as my Grandma's raspberries were at their best, so it was absolutely perfect timing! Persil have a new dual action capsules, which are designed to remove stains with granules and concentrated liquid. They have created special jam duels to celebrate two different ingredients working well together. I hadn't ever made raspberry jam before, but really liked the sound of Raspberry and Basil jam, so I set to work.

Kate & Mim-Mim Review

We were recently sent an episode of a brand new show which will be airing on Cbeebies next week. Kate and Mim-Mim is a new animated series which starts on Cbeebies on the 4th of August. It follows the fantastical adventures of a feisty five year old Kate and her toy bunny Mim-Mim as they travel to the fantasy world of Mimiloo where Mim-Mim transforms into a larger-than-life playmate.

Week 106 - What has made me happy

One day soon the introduction to these posts will be entirely happy, cheery and relaxed. Well, I hope so anyway! I am still continuing to try to be in too many places at once, but caring for my grandma takes precedent over everything else. It's tough work seeing her become a shadow of her former self. I watch her breathing when she sleeps and feel overwhelming grief that very soon she won't be here any more. I feel sad that we will be living in her house but that she won't be here with us. She won't be nagging us to put things away, or spending hours outside in the garden. We move in a few days and I am glad that we get to be here for her, but so, so sad that it has to end.

So, another tough week, but I have made sure that I find positive things around me, and here they are...
