Today’s blog post is all about what I do to calm down. Have you been keeping up with my daily blog posts? To read the latest copy the short link or check my bio!
Today’s read for our animal obsessed boy, it’s been raining so much today so we’ve stayed in and read and napped. We’ve both got this horrid cold that’s been going round and sticking to your chest so I’ve been utilising his nap time and napping too. People never tell you how hard being a parent is when both you and your child are ill it is so draining! Currently whacking the heating on and watching hey duggee under blankets!
We’ve spent our evening making Christmas cards. I know it’s early but considering i take like a month to remember to deliver any sort of card it’s probably right on time😂
Praise be! What I’m reading now! I’ve had this book for about a year and keep going to read it and stop. After being deeply immersed in the tv series and having to watch all of the seasons in every spare moment I had I thought enough time had passed now to pick the book up again. I’m about half way through and loving it but hating it at the same time. It’s a brilliant book but also such a harsh storyline that sometimes I feel a bit horrid reading it but I’m unable to put it down and must learn more and what happens next. Anyone else obsessed the tv series too and can not wait to see what happens next? #praisebe #thehandmaidstale #bookstagram
There’s something about the cold weather that makes me crave chocolate cake and a warm cup of tea ☕️🍰
This is my favourite little plaque in my house. I’m a sucker for cute little quotes and probably always will be. Whenever I look at this little thing I smile and remember to do more of what makes me happy. Just a reminder to “do more of what makes you happy”!

Throwing a Halloween party for toddlers.

Tis the season to be spooky and it’s my favourite time of the year. I’ve been really excited to get Elijah into Halloween and autumn activity’s as he gets older so i decided this year is the year. I thought about doing a little party with his little friends so all his friends could dress up and have a excuse to eat lots of food looking adorable doing it.

We have arranged the party for a few days before Halloween at 3-6pm so that kids will of had their naps and can have food and come and go as they please. Were just going to make a buffet and guests have offered to bring a dish each to make up more food which i guess will feed the parents (meaning me) too.

Where did i get all my bits from for the party? I got them all, yes all from poundland. It all came to ten pounds and for the food i estimate will cost me 15 so a whole party for 7 kids for 25 pounds is pretty cheep i think. I brought balloons for the toddlers to kick about and take home. Some hangable decorations to decorate the room and make it a bit more spooky but child friendly. I only brought things i wouldn’t scare kids so cute little monsters are perfect for this and not scary atall. I brought a table cover, plates and napkins for kids to dish up their food and also a big bucket for candy which can be used after for trick or treaters. The two lanterns can be used as house decorations at autumn times and used for decoration for the party too.The led light ghost changes colours aswell as the projector so can light and project patterns around the room!
