Weight Loss Diary – Hitting 10% of my goal

Weight Loss Diary

Losing weight should be easy, you eat moderately, you don’t stuff yourself full of junk food and you lose weight. In reality though, losing weight is a pain in the ass! Human bodies evolved to be efficient in a hunter gatherer environment, which means that we crave fats and sugars and are designed to be constantly moving about and working. In a modern society where sugar and fat is easily accessible and we spend most of our time in front of a computer screen, it’s no wonder that most of us could do with losing a few lbs. My weight […]

Finding the perfect campsite

Finding the perfect campsite

Camping has been a part of my life for as long as I could remember. I’ve camped everywhere from river banks, to festivals, to the chapel of a medieval castle! But now that I’m a bit older (and significantly more decrepit) I prefer to camp in luxury and that means finding a suitable campsite, which should be an easy task but unfortunately some camp sites just don’t cut the mustard. On the whole I’ve been lucky and found some amazing campsites, where the grass could have been a bowling green and the facilities have been clean enough to eat your […]

Review: Hape Bunny Push & Pull

Review: Hape Bunny Push and Pull Toy

About the Hape Bunny Push and Pull The Hape Bunny is a toddler toy recommended for 12+ months and designed to encourage walking. The brightly coloured bunny and the handle are both made of wood with one plastic connector to link the two handle sections. The bunny itself is very easy to push, with two large wheels and moving arms which raise a wooden carrot to the bunny’s mouth as it is pushed along. The bunny’s ears are connected by elastic so they can move when pulled on. My Review of the Hape Bunny Push and Pull As this is […]

Fidget Spinner Giveaway

Fidget Spinner Giveaway

It’s been a while but England is once again in the grips of a craze. The last time this happened the toy of choice was loom bands, remember them? The tiny bands which appeared over night and were suddenly the must have pocket money toy. The first time Child turned up with some I actually thought they were quite cool… that was until I’d spent hours trying to make an incredibly complicated bracelet for her and found myself hoovering up more loom bands than I would have believed possible for months afterwards. In the end I was glad when that […]

Review: Crosta & Mollica Piada

Crosta & Mollica authentic Italian food

About Crosta & Mollica Crosta & Mollica make a range of bread products inspired by the traditional street foods of Northern Italy and made with extra virgin olive oil as opposed to traditional fats. My Review of Crosta & Mollica Given that I come from Italian stock, at least on one side of the family, I was delighted to be given the opportunity to try Crosta & Mollica’s wide range of piada (flat breads) and bread based nibbles. Italian food is easily my favorite meal choice but I’ve never been a fan of olives so I was interested to see […]

Moving Home: What to expect

Moving Home: What to expect

It’s universally accepted that moving home is one of the most stressful things you will ever do, so imagine doing it only 2 weeks before your baby is born! Well, that is exactly what I did and to say it was a stress filled nightmare would be an understatement. Although my last move was an extreme case I did learn a lot from it, predominantly that I never want to move again! My previous moves were all equally enlightening in their own ways, so here is my guide to what you should expect when moving home. Making an offer: When […]

How do children improve your life?

How do children improve your life

A few days ago Grumpy Dad came home from work looking quite confused and asked me how I would explain to someone who neither had nor wanted children, how children improve your life. I opened my mouth to answer and immediately realised that there is no simple way to do this. It’s easy to see why someone with no desire for children would struggle to see how they improve your life. After all, even if you manage to keep some semblance of your old life after having children the likely-hood is that you will have less disposable income, you will […]

25 Sketches Challenge: Sketch 2

Sketching Challenge sketch 2 Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia in Star Wars

It’s time for sketch 2 in my 25 sketch challenge. I have to admit that I wasn’t very happy with my first sketch, I knew that it was no where near what I was capable of so before I started sketch 2 I spent some time watching others sketching on YouTube, just to remind myself of a few of the techniques that I had obviously forgotten. As a result sketch 2 looks like it was done by a different person! This time I chose Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia in Star Wars as my subject. I’m a big Star Wars […]
