Win a Brand New Kids’ Bike this Christmas with Halfords!


When Flea was two, all she wanted for Christmas was a bicycle. For weeks, all I heard was, “Mummy, tell Father Christmas that I would like a bicycle of my very own for Christmas.”  Santa was feeling particularly obliging that year and duly delivered a gorgeous wooden balance bike – when Flea woke up on December […]

Win Free Krispy Kreme Doughnuts for a Year

Movies have been a big part of our summer. While we were in San Francisco, we popped to the local cinema to see the new Paper Towns movie, which was great. In Santa Cruz, we spent an unforgettable evening on the beach, watching 80s classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off on the beach on a giant […]

In recent weeks, you may have noticed we’ve been off travelling on our summer adventures. Everyone knows that a great adventure needs the perfect luggage and I’m a little bit jealous of Flea, who has been carrying her essentials this summer in this amazing rocket-themed kids’ jetpack from Harry and Jack’s. Isn’t it cute? Often, I […]

Review and Giveaway: Neato Botvac Robot Vacuum


Dating a sci-fi nerd *and* raising a bona fide comic book geek means I am regularly told that robots will one day rise up and take over the world. But the good news is that at least in that dark future, my floors will be lovely and clean. Keeping a clean floor in a household like ours […]

Win 3 Gourmet Dinners for 2 with MarleySpoon, worth £90


It’s no secret that I am to cooking what a naked flame is to a straw bale. Disaster follows me like a shadow, whether it’s burned pasta, raw potatoes or mistaking sugar for salt (easy mistake, could happen to anyone). So when I was invited to try new cookery website Marley Spoon for size, I […]

Win a Limited Edition Tiny Tatty Teddy!

Final Tatty Teddy with name

It can’t have escaped your notice that there was a brand new Royal Baby this Bank Holiday weekend. By now, I fully expect that William and Catherine are at home, gazing down at their new arrival and wondering, “Will she EVER sleep again?” Or maybe that was just me. Bringing home a newborn was equal […]

Win £50 to spend at Olive and Vince


This weekend, Flea updated her summer wardrobe, which meant a shopping trip for both of us. Frankly, shopping is WAY more fun with a toddler – Flea has an aversion to wearing cute dungarees with stars on and teddy bear slippers these days, which saddens me. Is there anything cuter than a toddler in dungarees? […]
