• I want my Miffy TV

    October 4, 2015

    Hands up who loves Miffy? I’ve written before about our love for the little white rabbit who celebrated a big birthday this year.

    August 27, 2015

    Me, pre-children: I’ll never let my house become overrun with children’s toys Me, post-children: Arghhhh! *drowing under an avalanche of toys* Toys do have a habit of taking over your house, don’t they?

  • Win: a Trunki PaddlePak

    May 29, 2014

    Hands up who loves Trunki? It’s the company that makes brilliant fun out of otherwise functional objects. Eliza was given the ladybird suitcase for Christmas, and, ahead of our next holiday, likes to go on adventures around her bedroom with it (when she’s not using it to store all her toys). We have a review coming up…

  • Win: a flowery February

    January 30, 2014

    I love flowers; who doesn’t? There’s something so lovely about receiving them and buying them for other people…or myself. The photo above is made of four flowery Instagrams including ones my mum bought me after I gave birth, and Eliza’s first pair of shoes (also, are you following me on Instagram? I’m gill_c).
