Book Review || Blue Kanagroo Series

Blue Kangaroo is a hugely popular book series for children aged 2-5 years old.


I was kindly sent the 3 new books in the series,
When I First Met You Blue Kangaroo,
When Lily gets a new baby brother, she soon discovers that it’s not easy learning new things and helping to look after someone so small. But then Grandma brings her a very special surprise; someone who also needs to be cared for – Blue Kangaroo

Where Are You Blue Kangaroo,
Lily loves Blue Kangaroo, but she often loses him and sometimes Blue Kangaroo wonders if he’ll ever see her again. Luckily, Lily always seems to find him, but what if one day she doesn’t?

Happy Birthday Blue Kangaroo,
Lily has decided - this year she will have a pink birthday. Pink invitations, pink cake and pink presents. But Blue Kangaroo is not pink! Has Lily forgotten her best friend?


Written and illustrated by Emma Chichester Clark.

Ru is now at the stage where he's just started showing an interest in books and sitting still long enough for me to read him stories before bed,

It's actually helped quiet a lot with his sleep routine, as now he knows once he's had his story he'll get some cuddle time and then he'll be placed in his cot. 

We both loved these books, Ru loved pointing to the beautifully illustrated pictures and I loved the stories.
They show how strong a bond can be between child and toy.
When no one else quite gets you, you know your faithful toy will! 

Ru hasn't got a strong attachment to any of his teddies yet but the twins won't go anywhere without their beloved sheep dog teddies. 
They take them anywhere and everywhere.

The upsets we've had when they've  been misplaced, or when they need to be put in the wash because their whites are no longer white and they pong just a little too much!
The love they have for them is beyond words! 

These books will appeal to both parent and child alike. 
They'll make beautiful gifts and they'll sure to become bedtime favourites.  

Now I've read the new books in the series I shall be making sure I buying the old ones too! 



If you fancy buying these beautiful books you can order them now from Amazon;

Happy Birthday Kangaroo

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…
