Our Weekly Journal - Our First week With Bee

Our Weekly Journal - Our First week With Bee


We survived our first week with Bee, and he survived too! Mummy went back to work on Monday and we were not sure how the week would go. Bee is a breast fed baby, he is fed on demand which is usually  every two to three hours. He is also allergic to dairy and soya so weaning is a little bit tricky.

Shark Bite, Let's Go Fishing and Mr Bucket Toy Review

Shark Bite, Let's Go Fishing and Mr Bucket Toy Review


We were approached by Pressman Toys and asked if we would like to review* some of their games. Yes! We shouted, we would love to.

Bear has had his eye on Shark Bite and Mr Bucket for a while. Bear also loves fishing games (I made a really simple magnetic one ages ago that he still loves to play with).

We were sent Shark Bite, Let's Go Fishing and Mr Bucket to review. All the games are a fun way to help develop hand eye coordination. Which was our favourite?

The Wenallt, Cardiff - Not Just Bluebells

The Wenallt, Cardiff - Not Just Bluebells (although they are gorgeous)


If you read any guide on where is best to see bluebells in Cardiff (or in fact in South Wales) the Wenallt will always be in the top ten, probably number one or two. 
At the beginning of May the woods are transformed and a carpet of mauve appears. If the weather is kind and the sun shines the bluebells will glow. 

It is a popular place for dog walkers and photographers alike, but what else is there?

How to Grow Potatoes with Children

How to Grow Potatoes with Children


Children love gardening - they love the digging, watering and the harvesting. Many plants can be grown without a garden, just a big pot and somewhere to put it.

Sadly many children think fruit and vegetables come from the supermarket. They do not know that potatoes grow in the ground, tomatoes on bushes, apples on trees. It is easy to show them by growing your own fruit or vegetables. It doesn't need to be much, you can grow fruit or vegetables in pots. Start with potatoes but also try strawberries and tomatoes.

Bear has helped in the garden since he was old enough to walk. When I said we were planting potatoes today he asked "and tomatoes Nanny?" "I have to check they are red before I pick them" Yes, he remembered from last summer and he's only three.

Growing potatoes is easy, here's a quick guide. Even if you have never grown anything before, try this.

Forest Farm Nature Reserve- A Toddler Explores

Forest Farm Nature Reserve- A Toddler Explores


We are very lucky to live in Cardiff, there is so much to visit. We love the castles, museums and parks  but it can be months between each visit. We hadn't been to Forest Farm since last Autumn when we took Bear on his bike and he rode off with me running like an idiot behind shouting for him to stop. He did eventually!

"Too fast Nanny!" he explained "bike wouldn't stop".

It was a very cold day a few weeks ago when we decided to go back, this time without his bike!

Our Weekly Journal - Catch up, Spa and Colds

Our Weekly Journal - Catch up, Spa and Colds


It’s been a few weeks since my last journal, a combination of both Bear and Bee being poorly (nasty, nasty virus), time whizzing by and inertia, in the guise of Minecraft. If you have never played Minecraft Do.Not.Start! It sucks all your time and energy. If you have played, you know exactly what I mean.
