Review: Hape Walk-A-Long Puppy

I used to have this idea that my children would only have a few select toys, that they would be educational somehow, and that they would be themed so I could rotate them each day. Ha! Fast forward three years and my living room looks like a Toys'R'Us lorry crashed into it, so I am trying to go back to my original idea of quality over quantity. I'm also trying to choose toys that help my children learn and develop in some way, as well as being fun to play with, and ideally toys that both my three year old and one year old can enjoy. Their new Hape Walk-A-Long Puppy ticks all those boxes.

Craft Idea: Weather Chart

May's Bostik Blogger craft box has a weather theme to it. I've been really excited about doing this month's craft as I knew I wanted to make a weather chart. They are fun to make, easy to do and a great way of teaching younger children about the different weather types.

Review: The Microbiome Effect by Toni Harman & Alex Wakeford

If you're a regular reader of my blog, you know I'm incredibly fascinated by pregnancy and birth. You'll probably also know I've had both a c-section birth and then a vaginal birth. I've had a baby that was poorly and had formula for his first few days of life, and I've had a baby that was as strong as an ox and took to breastfeeding like a champ moments after being born. And I do often wonder what difference any of this could make to the boys' future health...

Recipe: Rainbow Loaded Baked Sweet Potatoes | Review: Joseph Joseph Handi-Grate

After deciding to go vegan at the start of the year, I've been trying out so many delicious new recipes and meal ideas. Mostly though, I just cook the same stuff as we always had and just adapt the recipe slightly. For example, soya products work just as well as dairy when a recipe calls for cream, milk or yogurt, and soya yogurt is what I use for the sauce in this recipe for Rainbow Loaded Baked Sweet Potatoes which I adapted from a Jamie Oliver recipe. You could use dairy yogurt if you like though.
