My Guide To Getting Crafty For Easter

Easter is one of my favourite holidays of the year. Come on, I mean we get loads of chocolate. But also because there just seems to be a great emphasis on being crafty at Easter and this gives the boys and I an excuse to get sticky with the PVA glue.

To start off with our Easter craft activities, Hobbycraft sent us out a bundle of items to get us on our way. From a Make Your Own Foam Easter Chick Crown Kit and a Make Your Own Large Felt Easter Chick right to the funky Decopatch Mache Jack Rabbit Trophy which gave you the added extra of being able to add your own flair to it. 


Baby Annabell Brother Interactive Doll

It seems that in this day and age, that gender stereotypes still exist, whereby, it is felt that boys should not play with dolls, or things that are deemed 'girly' as that is somehow doing them a disservice. I hate this and I for one, am not not one of those people!

When it comes to buying toys for my sons, I try not to limit what they can choose to play with. If they want a superhero, that's fine. The same with if they wanted to pretend to be a daddy, that's okay too. 

So when we had the chance to receive the Baby Annabell Brother Interactive Doll I thought it would be a great way to let the boys play 'daddy' for a bit and give them that bit of responsibility. 


When You Want To Change, But Don't Know How

This is quite a hard post for me to write as it's something so personal to me. Something that I dread to think about. And is the reason why I'm sat here at 3am, unable to sleep and sobbing away. Trying to keep as quiet as possible so as to not wake the baby. 

My husband and I have been together for 11 years. We know each other inside out. When talking to each other, we rarely use our names and usually pick insults instead. I'm quite partial to calling him a crank when talking to him. And why not, it's a great word. It's probably up there in my top 10 favourite words. My first favourite being cantankerous as, well why the hell not. It's a fab word!

Cayton Bay Holiday Park, Park Resorts,

As a Yorkshire family, there is nothing we love more than exploring our glorious county in search of those little gems that show just how beautiful our little part of the world is. The North Yorkshire coast provides many locations and views to admire, but my most favourite place of all, the place that is just perfect for us, is Cayton Bay.

It's like a gem of a place, nestled in-between the famous resorts of Scarborough and Filey, and has a magnificent wide sweeping bay that is a an area of unspoilt natural beauty, and a beautiful place to explore, no matter what time of the year you decide to visit.
