Fidget bum, fairies & fajitas #LittleLoves

Happy Friday everyone! We have had such a hectic few weeks with half term and a few days away, and now we are desperately trying to get back into a routine….although the children have other ideas! It’s been lovely to see some sunshine at long last this week, long may it last! Anyway, on to our weekly round up!

This week we have been enjoying the loveliest children’s book, Molly’s Magic Wardrobe, and I can see this becoming a favourite for a long time to come! With a magic wand and fairy wings, as well as the most beautiful illustrations, I think Megan’s smile says it all!

This week I finally managed to watch something more than Nick Junior and sat down to watch the return of Davina McCalls show, “This time next year!”. It never fails to make me cry and this week was no different, I was sobbing just five minutes in! If you haven’t seen it then I definitely recommend it!

 

We heard the good news that Harry got his first choice of primary school and will be joining the girls in September! I am completely in denial about it and fooling myself into believing that he is still very much a baby….

We have been making up the bed with our amazing new Fidgetbum sheet! The Fidgetbum was designed to keep fidgety children in place during the night, and it’s been an absolute godsend for Harry! Made from a comfy, cosy, stretchy cotton fabric with a chunky zip at either end, it is designed to stretch snuggly around either a single or toddler bed mattress.

Usually in the night Harry wakes when he wriggles his way upside down or even out of bed, but since using the Fidgetbum he has woke each morning still perfectly in place and he (and we!!) have had a far better nights sleep!

As you may have seen on Instagram, we were recently chosen as Pink Sorbet brand ambassadors and the girls have never taken their Unicorn sweatshirts off! They are so lovely, in a gorgeous soft sweatshirt material, and who doesn’t love a sparkly unicorn?

Harry was over the moon with his dinosaur sweatshirt too, he is absolutely obsessed with dinosaurs of late and I’m sure you’ll agree, he is pretty roarsome!!

Β 

This week we have been enjoying Old El Paso Gluten Free Fajita’s and let me tell you, they are DELICIOUS!! I have been gluten free for almost 3 years now and although there are many foods which I miss, real fajitas are perhaps at the top of my list! Whilst many gluten free wraps are noticeably different to non GF varieties, the Old El Paso fajitas are pretty much identical to the originals! I thought I would test Gaz and the kids by not telling them they were gluten free and all of them commented on how good they were this week. I think that’s a win all round!

    What a lovely round up post! Congratulations on your little one getting into his first choice school. It’s such a big step, but hoping he enjoys his first steps into education!

  2. April 19, 2018 / 5:52 pm

    It is so hard when your youngest starts school as they seem to be forever babies! I was lucky in that my double trouble started 2 years later here in Sweden so I could enjoy them home for a little longer

  3. April 19, 2018 / 7:35 pm

    We found out that our daughter got in to our first choice of school, and we are so happy! It’s such a relief. Though I also can’t believe that she starts school in September! Those unicorn tops are gorgeous!

    We got our school letters this week too – it’s such a relief when you finally know where they’re going! My eldest got accepted into the private school we were hoping for, so we’re excited for him (not so much for the prices!) I keep hearing about ‘This time next year’ – I’m in Florida and I’m 99% sure we won’t get the show over here, but I’ll have a look and see if I can find it on YouTube. I love those unicorn sweaters too, I wonder if they make them in adult sizes?!

    My son’s 16th birthday yesterday. Not so much the highlight of his though, as he is revising for exams and there is a lot of pressure as well as extra lessons after school most nights. He perked up though when my sister suggested to him that he should have another birthday on Saturday complete with more cake!!

    Well highlight and a bit of a shock, in a good way. Been working with the same colleague for nearly 2 years now and we’ve always been friendly, nothing too flirtatious but he supports the same football team as me, even if it’s not the same rugby league team so of course there’s a lot of friendly banter and ribbing if my rugby team beat his as they seem to be doing a lot these daysq. On Wednesday of last week, he has now asked if I’d like to go for a coffee with him when we have our lunch-break and see what happens from then on.
