Dettol Baby Blanket Donation

I am pleased to support The Dettol Baby Blanket Donation which aims to promote the dangers of bacteria on blankets and highlight the shortage of baby blankets available to infants born to disadvantaged families.

Dettol and celebrity mum Rachel Stevens are encouraging mums across the UK to “keep the memories, not the bacteria” by donating a blanket via Freepost and sharing their special recollections and photographs of their babies’ blanket on social media. Once collected, the baby blankets will be hygienically washed with Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser before being re-distributed by Dettol to families in need.

Country Kids 25 October 2014

country kids linky

This is my first #CountryKids post for  while, and I was hoping to show you some fantastic pumpkin picking photos, and a local pumpkin farm that we have just discovered. Yesterday was the first chance we had, Lea and Luke were off school on an Inset Day and we had planned to go to the farm. The weather was so bad though, constant heavy rain, so we had to postpone our trip to tomorrow.

I hope to bring you the photos soon – hoping that there are enough pumpkins left!

Anyway, this is me, outside one of my favourite restaurants before we had a walk on the beach. I know you can’t see me properly, but I like the photo, and hope you do too!

Tommee Tippee Rock!

Living in deepest West Wales is amazing, having the sea and the countryside all around me. Every journey takes us past fields of horses, cows and sheep, or alongside the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast – most journeys I take do both!

But, the downside of living here is the lack of shops! And the shops we do have tend to be smaller than you find in big towns and cities. So, Mummy does find it a bit tricky sometimes to find the exact things that she wants for me. She wanted a new no-spill toddler cup for me, as I am getting a bit older, and a proper cutlery set. She did find some, of course, but not exactly what she wanted.

A lot of my things since birth, and before we started this blog, are Tommee Tippee – as were my brother and sisters too! They all had the no-spill cups, spoons, bowls etc and Mummy thought they were great, so we were so thrilled when Tommee Tippee sent us a set of their goodies!

Tommee Tippee

These are all perfect for me, perfect size, and perfect to use. They are all from the Explora range for toddlers. The cup, the Active Sipper, is truly non-spill, with an easy to clean funky little valve thing in the lid. It is as big as I can hold, but it means Mummy can bring a nice long drink with us. It is also insulated to keep drinks cool.

The Explora cutlery set is metal with soft handles, exactly what Mummy wanted for me. They are easy to hold, and nice and chunky.

The other cool thing they sent me was a Snack n Go pot – this is so clever! I can fill it with my favourite snacks, then help myself to them, with the special lid stopping the snacks falling out! And they really don’t fall out! Believe me, I have shaken this about quite a bit!

All Tommee Tippee products are BPA free, you can read the full details on their website here.

Rainbow Trust Big Hour

I am promoting a  campaign that is happening this week 20-26 October, to raise funds for Rainbow Trust Big Hour Tea Time, and to let you know what you can do to help the charity.

The Big Hour Tea Time

I am so lucky to be well and healthy, and my brother and sisters are too. But lots of children are not so lucky, and charities like Rainbow Trust offer much needed help and support.

‘The Big Hour Tea Time is all about making the most of the extra hour we gain when the clocks go back this Autumn to highlight how crucial time is for families caring for a seriously ill child.’

Loving my Funky Bib!

The lovely, lovely people at Funky Giraffe Bibs have sent me a fabby personalised, funky bib to see what I think.


Although I am now 2, I still only have about 8 teeth – I like to bite Mummy’s fingers if she tries to feel around in my mouth, so she has to tip me upside down to try and see, and that’s not always easy!
