Blogging Event: Pottery Painting at Minikins

Last week we were very lucky to be invited by Grown Up Milk to an event at Minikin Emporium in Sale.

Grown Up Milk is a new website that aims to help parents pick healthy options for their child's nutrition, and they wanted to give us a fun day.  Minikin Emporium in Sale was the perfect venue. It is a beautiful paint and pot family art cafe and sweet shop...hang on... ALL of that?

Yep. It was fab!

Blogging Event: Toast of The Town Cocktail Event

I was extremely excited to be invited to a cocktail making masterclass at the Copthorne Hotel in Manchester. I definitely don't make the effort to go to enough blogging events so I promised myself that I would start getting out more, and I wasn't disappointed!

I'm a BiBs 2014 Finalist!

This post has took me AGES to write. I'm a a bit scared to say it to be honest. I've been so overwhelmed that I have hardly been able to think about it - and drowning in Uni work meant that I had to bury it so I didn't get too giddy

Anyway: I'm in the final 6 for the Brilliance In Blogging Awards  in the laugh category.

A326 Empire: Stick a Fork In Me...I'm Done

I've always wanted to say that in real-life. About anything really.

So anyway, I am done. End of module assignment done and dusted. I must have spent around 20...30...40 hours on it. Would I prefer a three hour exam?

A Day In The Park...

Today we went to Croxteth Park in Liverpool. The sun was beaming down and we had a lovely day. I got a bit snap-happy and so I have decided to link this post up to the Tots 100 and Center Parcs Family Blogging Challenge as an entry to win a break at one of the Center Parcs villages.
First of all I read some tips on the Center Parcs blog about taking photos. I've never really been a great photographer, but I read that sometimes you can take the best photos with just a normal phone.

Smoking Around Children

This is a collaborative post and was written by K. Watson.

Always a bit of a sensitive one this one, isn’t it? Whether you’re a smoker or not, you probably know that smoking around children isn’t the best of ideas. If you want to smoke on your own, fine. You know, you’re a grown adult and we all have our vices. But when the consequences aren’t just yours to bear, then perhaps it’s time to consider giving up smoking?

The World of Travel With Children

This informative collaborative post was written by K. Watson.

Holidays should be the part of the year you look forward to most… right? Right? Don’t worry, you’re not the only mother who might feel like this isn’t always necessarily the case.

I'm a Wannabe #MorrisonsMum...#don'tlikebeingleftout

So quite a few bloggers were selected by the supermarket Morrisons to take part in a bank holiday campaign to show Morrisons new cheaper range. Bloggers were sent £80 worth of vouchers to go and really enjoy their holiday weekend and report back to their readers about the new range.

I was not one of them :(

*cue LOADS of Awwwwws!*

I didn't get the chance to apply because my blog admin is poor. Oh come on, you know I'm busy! Anyway, never one to be left out of the loop - I have done my own Wannabe #MorrisonsMum bank holiday!
