How to catch a star review and competition!

In order to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the children’s picture book entitled ‘How to catch a star’ by Oliver Jeffers I was sent a beautiful presentation box to share with my daughter Faith. The box contained a copy of the book, some glow in the dark stars, some activity sheets, a letter from Oliver and a star shaped USB which contained a video from Oliver. There was also a second copy of the book so that I could offer[Read more]

Themed family fun – week 5

The idea is simple – each week I will tell you a theme. It could be a colour, a shape, an animal, a holiday or anything. You then use the theme to have some family fun and write a blog post telling us all what you did. You might cook something or craft something or visit somewhere. Whatever you like as long as you are having fun. The rules. 1) Visit my blog every Monday to see what the weeks theme[Read more]

Painting daffodils.

Faith loves daffodils, they have always been her favourite flower. I think it’s because they are always everywhere in the spring and she likes to pick one whenever we are out and bring it home to look at. She always put’s it in a glass of water and she will sit and talk with it, it is very sweet. Anyway, when we decided to paint a picture of a flower it had to be a daffodil. We were inspired by the[Read more]

Themed family fun – flowers week

Welcome to flowers week. This week I have been very ill so I am afraid we only have a small craft activity to show for flowers week. We used coloured paper doilies to make a flower and then stuck it onto some paper. We then used pens to add a flower pot, stalk and decorations. Tomorrow I will be posting our paintings of daffodils which we also did with flower week in mind. If you have been inspired by this[Read more]

The prompt – week 11.

The Prompt for this week from the lovely Sara over at mumturnedmom is a phrase and it is: That was unexpected… This prompt is definitely the hardest for me to write so far as I am a planner so there is rarely anything unexpected happening in my life. In truth, I do not deal with the unexpected very well, I am a control freak! I plan every week, day by day, and I have lists of lists that cover every eventuality[Read more]

My groovy update 20/03/14 – 26/03/14

This week has been a hard week as I have been very ill with a flu bug which completely knocked me down and Lauren has had a virus so she has been off school and very unwell bless her! On Thursday I went to weight watchers and even through I had followed the plan to the letter I still gained weight so I was not best pleased! You can read more about that here. On Sunday my dad came up[Read more]

My week two results.

Well at last I have finished the simple start part of my weight watchers journey and I am very glad to be starting week three on normal pro points. This week has been much more positive for me which is good as being very down about things is not like me at all. This week I decided to embrace the simple start plan as it was only for a week and like I said last week, it was phase two[Read more]

Themed family fun – week four

The signature scent of the Maldives.

Here is what I think would be the perfect description of the Maldives signature scent.The base of this scent is soft pink rose, the Maldives traditional flower. Coconut and a hint of vanilla are layered together representing the Maldives traditional fruit and the sweetness from the vanilla adds to the fun that the Maldives stands for. The colour of this scent is a delicate light blue that is reminiscent of the beautiful clear blue waters that surround the Maldives. The[Read more]
