December Makes & Bakes

This month I decided to be a little bit more creative.
I put Pinterest to use and found some fun ideas that I knew the boys would love and I'd enjoying making!

I'll start with the foodie bits first : 

• Mince pies - first time making and first time tasting! 
•Strawberry Santa's with cream
• Rice Krispie Christmas Puddings bites
• Santa Star biscuits 

I really enjoyed getting creative in the kitchen and the boys loved eating the end creations. Something I'll keep up in the coming months! 

The last few days before Christmas I realised we hadn't got any presents for the extra members of the family that we were going to be seeing, so Pinterest to the rescue again and I made some....
Homemade Clay Bunting!!!

They were really easy to make and everyone loved them!
I'm thinking about making myself some as I really love them.
All you need is 
• Cornflour
• PVA glue 
• Cookie cutter
• String
• Red pencil or pen!

I'll do a full blog post on them once I've made them again!! 

As a Christmas activity we took the boys to Little Potters in Sittingbourne to enjoy a coffee and to paint some plates and tree decorations. 

This was before they were put in the kiln, we collected them just before Christmas.
They have turned out great and will be fantastic keepsakes.
The star plate is currently being used as a fruit bowl! 

Did you make or bake anything different this month?

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…
