It’s not just Dora who is an Explorer!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting!) This week we took a trip to see Dora the Explorer Live and had a most wonderful time! We’d seen Dora on stage at the Lollibop Festival a couple of weeks ago when she was doing some cookery demonstrations and dancing on the main stage and we knew from just those little glimpses that she would be wonderful in her very own show and we weren’t wrong! It doesn’t matter how many times we […]

The Lolling Routine of Sleep and Other Lolling Lollibopping Activities!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting! I’m not sure if we’re the only ones who do this but every time Florence sleeps through the night (or has other desirable behavioural patterns for that matter) Jonny and I go through what we did that day, decide something MUST be the answer and try to replicate it the next day to promote the same result again. Most of the time this is met with a big fat ‘ha ha ha’ coming […]

Rocking With My Tiny Love!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting! When I was expecting Florence with no clue as to what looking after a new born baby entailed I had very clear fixed ideas about the type of gear I would need to help me. I was barking for I literally knew nothing and chose almost everything by what it looked like and its price! I did know about buggies (I’ve weirdly always been a buggy addict) but as for everything else… Well, let’s […]

Asda Summer Food Challenge – Day 3!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting!   Final day now and desert is on the cards! How can you ruin a desert? Well, I very often do but this one is fool proof because even I made it and the family loved it last night so I hope you do too! Just to remind you of the ‘rules’ to the challenge that Asda have set me: Asda have asked me if I will produce some recipes using fresh and seasonal […]

Asda Summer Food Challenge – Day 2!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting!   Second day and the family survived the starter, Florence even ate the whole bowl and she’s VERY picky when it comes to eating so I’m not doing too badly, I think! Onto my main course today and it’s another vegetarian option. I’m not veggie myself but I often prefer non meat dishes, especially in the summer – apart from on the Barbie of course! Just to remind you of the ‘rules’ to the […]

Asda Summer Food Challenge – Day 1!

Asda Summer Food Challenge day 1   Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting!   I’m not going to be doing my usual blog entry this week because I’ve been set a challenge by Asda instead (plus they’re offering my readers a rather brilliant competition to go with it – read on for that)! Never one to shy away from something of this nature I have leapt head first at the task they have set me despite the fact it uses […]

Guilty Pleasures!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting! I don’t know about you but I have found myself, since becoming a mummy, feeling rather guilty almost daily. Guilty for all sorts of things and talking to my friends I think this is just par for the course with the mummy role. I find myself wondering if I am doing the right thing all the flipping time and sometimes it’s enough to drive me bonkers or perhaps I am already bonkers to be […]

A Natural Approach!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting! I was recently asked if I would like to try a Natural Facelift Massage and have a Manual Lymphatic Drainage treatment to my body. I had no idea what they were but hearing the words ‘treatment’ and ‘massage’ I naturally accepted immediately. My body after all has been through some major stuff recently what with having a baby and all the damages labour caused, I felt it was probably due a treat or […]

Skin Deep Beauty!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting! I’ve always thought using all natural products is a lovely idea but never really delved much deeper than that and it wasn’t until the week before last when Jimmy and I visited the Weleda Institute in Ilkeston that I really understood why we should be using natural products, not just on our babies but on ourselves too! I had no idea about skin care products and what goes into them. I had presumed that […]

I’ll be posting as normal in my usual style on Friday but I wanted to begin my WordPress journey with another new beginning and write this special post to start with. Last night I was very kindly invited […]
