Survival of the Fittest Competition with Ransom Spares!

I was invited to take part in 
Survival of the Fittest Competition with Ransom Spares.

Could I live without my washing machine for a week? 
Maybe learn some washing life hacks along the way!?

I thought this would be a great Challange to take part in, as my poor washing machine is on constantly every single day!

I always ask myself ...Is that really necessary?  
Well the answer to that is 

I cannot live without my washing machine for a day let alone a week!

I think I last all of two days before I was faced with a washing mountain the size of Kilimanjaro!! 

Being a family of 6, we get through a LOT of washing!!
The twins still have the occasional toilet accident and well Rupert is a walking mess magnet! 
Not only am I washing the daily clothes, I have tea towels, towels and bed lining to work into the equation!
If one basket doesn't get done that has a huge knock on effect.

The Little washing hacks I tried! 
• I tried making the boys re wear any clothes / pjs that weren't dirty.
• I tried washed some of Noah's uniform by hand!

~Even doing that didn't make much difference to the mountain.~

Would I love to be able to live with out doing at least two loads a day?
Of course I would! 
But being able to keep on top of the busy 
household upkeep its out of the question!

To those who succeeded I tip my hat to you!
Well done! 

Do you think you could live without your washing machine for a whole week??

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…
