Congrats to Nat Pollard, Toni @ Finding Myself Young and Charmaine Campbell! You’ve all won a prize. Please check your emails.
For those who missed out, stay tuned, there’s always more giveaways coming up!
This is a review and giveaway.
The thing about packing to move house is, you come across things you didn’t even remember existed. Things in the corners of shelves, behind suitcases. Things like journals that detail every worst possible emotion and physical despair while pregnant with your first.
I hate this so much. Anybody who says they loved being pregnant the whole time is a BIG FAT LIAR! I just knew I wasn’t going to be a natural at this. I’m not excited in the slightest. I want to vomit, pass out and eat something all at the same time”
I felt so sad when I read this. Guilty! After a while though, I realised that it was just part of the journey. It was horrible. Crappy as crap can be. It was crappy the second time too. Early pregnancy never did me any good, but pregnancy as a whole has done wonderful things, and it was so, so worth it.
I used to think what made me a mum is feeling that baby in my arms, or feeling that first kick, because the first trimester didn’t make me feel very mum like. Then I lost in the first trimester and realised I was a mum the minute I knew I was pregnant. You were too.
Being a mum has made me emotional. It has made me tired, it has lifted me up and brought me down. Being a Mum has made me determined, joyous and loved by my own. Being a mum has made me, and you, so many things. We are, so many things! We deserve a celebration.
So come and win something awesome. You’ve earned it.
Sure, flowers are nice…but a crate of fruit, bubbly and chocolate that comes delivered, chilled and ready to be devoured? Yeah. It wins! You would think fruit could not look this perfect, but it arrived just like this, chilled, shiny, fresh fruit. We made a light night picnic with it and every piece of fruit was just right. The next day I was able to expose the kids to some fruits we might not normally eat too!
Oh My Giddy Aunt have never failed to deliver quality and I’ve worked with the ever lovely Nikki a number of times now. This speech bubble is a gorgeous way to record a word that means something to you and your family or maybe it’s your children’s first words. I had “Mum” put on mine because both boys have said “Mum” first despite “Dad” being much more common as a first word apparently! The quality, as always is just right and a lot of love goes into the packaging too. You won’t be disappointed.
Well this is the bee’s knees. You know why? Let me tell you a scenario:
Me: Turn the TV off now Tom, let’s go outside
Tom: No, I want to watch a….what happened?
Me: (Putting my phone away) oh the TV isn’t working! Maybe it will turn on later. Let’s go do something else
That’s what the switch does. Plug it into a device and use your phone to turn that device on or off at any time including scheduling it in. Want the kettle to do its thing at 7am? Done. Want the TV to switch off at dinner time? Done. Want the heater on before you get home? Yes, it can do that too. Very nifty device!
