Don’t Break The Bank Holiday


Living in a holiday destination Bank Holidays can get really busy around here, so we normally decided to stay in or visit family.
None of the boys really enjoy the hustle and bustle of town and prefer to be kept busy other ways.
When possible we also try our best to keep the cost down.

So I thought I would share some of our top favourite things to do on a Bank Holiday.

Garden Picnic..


If the weather is nice, why not head out into the garden and have a picnic?
Food always tastes better in the sun...
The boys love eating outside and it always makes them smile to see food being set up on the picnic bench.

Get The Kids To Put On A Show...


The twins love putting on a show, they never really make sense and they are usually over within a second, but they spend most of the day practising.
When they're really planning their play, they always ask for face paints.
I'm not amazing at face paints but they are always happy when they see the end results.



Movie Day....



If the weather is being rubbish, why not snuggle up on the sofa and watch some of your favourite films?
When we have a film day, the boys each pick a film and then sit back and enjoy a movie marathon.
Cakes and popcorn are usually provided by yours truly.

Painting Fun...


Sometimes sitting in front of the telly can get a bit boring, so when that happens I always have a supply of paint and paper.
Getting the boys to paint always keeps them entertained for a couple of hours and then they end up with a few new master pieces to put up on the fridge.


Bake a Cake...


Before you have a movie day, you could bake your own cakes.
We all enjoy baking cakes and making a mess in the kitchen.
You can either look in the cupboards and get creative with the ingredients that you have, or you could cheat and get a pre made kit with your weekly shopping.

We were asked to work with Provident on their ‘don’t break the bank holiday’ campaign to advise families across the UK on what do but on a budget.”

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…
