London zoo 4-1-2015

A little while ago my mum decided she wanted to take Noah and his cousin Isla to London zoo ..... Little did she know everyone else wanted to go!
So me and my gang, mum and dad, kelly and the girls - (Isla and Esme) all headed towards the zoo on a cold Sunday morning!

Jon has never been to London zoo so he was pretty excited and the boys were extremely excited. 

The night before the twins were doing all their monkey expressions and Noah went on about how he really wanted to see a squid ..... Which I told him was unlikely as it wasn't an aquarium, didn't seem to stop his hopes lol! 

We all met at 11 by the gates, we drove, Kelly and the girls got the tube and mum and dad got the train and tube! 

Isla was the girl with the plans, pen and notepad in hand ready to list everything we had done and wanted to do!!! 

Everyone really wanted to see the Tigers 

and the twins wanted to see the giraffes (giraffes can't dance is one of their favourite books)

We went into the butterfly house and saw lots of beautiful butterflies. One even landed on the twins bobble hats! 

We saw the Penguins at penguin beach, one was rather noisey which made everyone laugh! 

We saw the gorillas, and the new baby gorilla .... Very sweet 

We all brought a picnic, so at lunch time we all sat down and tucked in. Hot coffees and teas for the grown ups as it was just so cold!  

We went to the Rainforest and saw lots more lovely animals there. One little chap even wanted his picture taken! 

We all had a fantastic day and all the kids enjoyed themselves! 

I Love London zoo and will definitely taking the boys back again and again! 

A few more snaps from the day 

I did my first back carry with Ru..which he seemed to enjoy

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…
