5 veg Bolognese.....

I always try to make sure the boys eat there 5 a day. 
They are great at it to be honest, Noahs not so keen on veg but he always gobbles up my 5 veg bolengesis. 

What you need :: 
500g lean mince beef
2 carrots 
5 mushrooms 
1 courgette 
1 onion 
1 can of Tinned tomatoes 
2 garlic cloves 
A couple of big spoon fulls of red and green pesto 
Some nutmeg

What to do
Chop up the onion and add it to a hot pan, let that soften up then add in the mince. Whilst the mince is browning, chop up the veg into small cubes (you can feats the veg as this then completely hides the veg from fussy children) 
Add to the meat, then pour in the tinned toms and a little bit of water, then in ho your spoon fulls of pesto then crush in your garlic and herbs! 

The longer it cooks the better.
I usually get mine going at lunch time so that by dinner it is perfect. 
You could pop it in a slow cooker and have it on all day. Your house would smell amazing!

I serve mine with pasta as the boys like that more than spaghetti. 

Sometimes they have garlic bread as an extra treat.

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
