Tummy Bugs, Coffee and a New Car

Easter holidays have been and gone and oh how they dragged.
The first week we didn't really do anything as we had a lot of stuff to do with the business but I had lots of fun things planned for the second week.

Well that was up until the tummy bugs hit! Alex, Oscar, Ru and Jon all suffered! 
I managed to get the twins and Noah to the cinema on the Wednesday but that was it.
I had planned to visit Kent Life, Leeds Castle and a family swimming trip but no!

So now I'll spread those visits over a couple of weekends as I was really looking forward to getting some day trips done.

The twins and Noah all went back off to school/nursery on Monday and to be honest I pretty much did a happy dance as soon as I waved them off.
I know that sounds pretty mean, but we were all suffering from cabin fever and it was great to get them out the house.

Also not having them around meant I could give the house a good tidy top to bottom whilst Ru ran around behind me pretending to join in.

We sold our car on Monday, so I've been pretty much housebound, I've taken Ru to the park a few times but other than that we haven't done anything. I need to him a smart trike as then I could push him to the beach, walking there with him would just be painful.

With our weekly shopping we treated ourselves to a new Tassimo coffee machine.
Oh its amazing!
I can even make the boys hot chocolate and baby-chinos too!!

Yesterday our new car turned up, it's a bit of a beast and I'm not really looking forward to getting behind the wheel.
I'm sure as soon as I do I'll love it and won't know what I was moaning about.

I have some exciting reviews coming up in the next few days, weeks;

• Pink Parcel  
• Slendertone
• Hasbro Games
• Tots by smart trike
•  Maped Helix

Now I'm self hosted (I am incase you hadn't notice)
I feel like a real blogger and feel like my blog is going in the direction I want it too.

I'm currently in talks with a website designer about giving the blog a facelift.
As this current design no longer excites me. 

Hope you all have a lovely Friday :)

I'm pretty excited that I've been invited along to take part in the semi finals over in Orpington this coming Friday.
I don't think there's anything more entertaining than a good board game.

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!

Intuition razors are the first 3-in-1 razors to lather, shave and moisturise in one easy step, giving your skin that naturally healthy glow.

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…
