Monkey is now a princess. #MySundayPhoto

 Monkey is Ellie's favourite stuffed toy. She said I needed to take a photo of him in his dress.....Isn't he a pretty princess. hehehe

Yes, I know Monkey isn't a monkey.....He's a lion. When we were looking around the charity shops last year Ellie spotted a monkey she wanted. As it was the first of the many charity shops on our high street we said wait and see if there's anything else you want. She didn't see anything else and when we went back to buy the monkey he had gone and there was a lion in his place.....She bought that and named him Monkey.

Week 11 - A photo everyday for a year. #Project365

I am sick of this rain....We had it all last weekend and since Wednesday evening it hasn't stopped raining here and we're forecast snow over the weekend. lol

We have had a lovely week but I'm glad it's the weekend. 

Now for a photo every day....

69/365 - 10th March
Walking home from the school play rehearsals....She still loves to jump in puddles.

70/365 - 11th March
I was very spoilt on Mother's day....A card each off the girls, an extra one that Ellie made at school and one of Ellie's favourite soft toy Monkey too.

71/365 - 12th March
I bought a jar from Poundland which is perfect for keeping sweets and chocolate in. It's perfect because Ellie can't open it. hehehe

72/365 - 13th March
Ellie in her costume for the school play. She was a villager in the school production of Beauty & the Beast.

73/365 - 14th March
Ellie brought home all the spellings she needs to learn for her SATs in May....Oh my goodness! There is some words there which I can never spell first try. She is doing well at learning them though.

74/365 - 15th March
I was sent a bottle of Mozart White chocolate liqueur to review....It has such fantastic packaging. I do get excited when I get something in a solid box which can be used for something else.

75/365 - 16th March
We had a breakthrough...Ellie has finally got the hang of long division and it made completing her homework so much easier and a lot less stressful.

It has all been lovely. #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is:

Lovely seems such a boring word to describe our week but it has been a lovely week.

On Saturday it was lovely spending time with Becky, just the two of us....Ellie was at rehearsals for the school play....We didn't do much apart from watch YouTube videos but she is good company....Well she was when she eventually got out of bed. hehehe

I had the best Mother's Day and was spoilt rotten....The gifts and cards were lovely but what was even better was that the kids were on their best behaviour and helped my fella do all the housework....I didn't have to lift a finger all day.

On Monday I had a chat with Ellie's head teacher. She is so supportive. More things are being put in place to help Ellie and the head teacher is adamant that someone needs to observe Ellie in school before they make a final decision about whether she has autism or not....

Tuesday was show day! About 5 primary schools in the area and the secondary school put on a show each year and Ellie is in the choir....This year it was Beauty & the Beast. She has been practising the songs and I imagined the choir would just be sat at the side of the stage like last time....I was so wrong.

They were walking around the stage as villagers, stood with glasses of beer in the Gaston song and coming on and off the stage in other songs....It was brilliant. All the primary kids played more of a part in the show compared to last year and they sang their little hearts out.....The secondary school pupils were brilliant as the main characters especially the girl who played Belle and the boy who played the beast...I cried at the end. lol It was so lovely!

The rest of the week has been lovely too....Stu worked a double shift so he earned himself an extra day off work. He had Wednesday and Thursday off this week. We didn't do much but it was lovely having him home just for the company.

This weekend I am hoping for a nice, quiet one. There is no excitement of Mother's day and play rehearsals but I do have a couple of blog reviews to write...I am hoping for some sunshine so I can take some photos. It's so dark in here at the moment, even with all the lights on.

Do you argue about technology with your family?

As a family we rarely argue....The only thing my fella and I have ever argued about is food. lol. Our first ever argument was over a chicken burger....We'd been for a night out and I bought chips & garlic sauce and a chicken burger. I ate the chips and sauce and he wanted the burger because I wasn't eating it.....I was going to though. I always saved the burger for 

The only thing we ever have slight disagreements over is technology & electronics....Ugh! 

Technology has been named as the number one cause of arguments between parents and children at home, igniting more disputes than bedtimes, homework, chores, curfews or pocket money according to new research from insurer Protect Your Bubble.

I really think that is true! 

I love Becky my teenager to bits but sometimes I think she is addicted to her tablet.... We put a timer on her tablet and on a school night she is allowed 2 hours and on a Friday night and a weekend she is allowed 3 hours which I think is more than enough. She can earn extra time by doing chores around the house.

I have seen people at her school up until the early hours of the morning online....It can't be good for their health or their mental state...Becky is in year 10 at school and is in her GCSE years....She will be getting more and more homework to complete. I don't want her rushing through the homework just to get on to her tablet....

Another rule we have as a household is the kids do not take their tablets/laptops upstairs....I want to see what they are doing online which means they are always switched off before bed. 

The time limits doesn't stop Becky trying to bend the rules....Like I said Becky had 3 hours during the school holidays for electronics....We only have a timer on her tablet but will flit between that, the laptop, xBox and her sisters tablet thinking I won't realise how long she had on everything....I do notice! She is not happy when I kick her off electronics and make her find something else to do....

Ellie my youngest isn't left out of the timed rule but she will happily spend half an hour on the computer them go and play with her dolls for 2 hours, spend 20 minutes on her laptop then go and play with something else for an hour so it doesn't really apply to her....She hasn't reached the age yet where she is addicted to technology and I hope that time never comes....

Almost half (48%) of children have damaged or broken a piece of tech costing £125 to replace on average.

Yep! My girls have both broken their tablets in the past and had to have them replaced....What springs to mind is in 2016 a few days before Christmas Becky dropped her tablet and broke it...It was a good job she got money off my dad for Christmas to buy a new one.....We only had a little extra to pay. Thank goodness for the boxing day sales. Last year Ellie dropped her tablet and has smashed her screen. She had to make do with an old one until Santa brought her one for Christmas....

To be fair both my girls are usually careful with their electronics....Ellie does seem to go through a lot of headphones though. She has a habit of chewing on the wires. Oops.

Children are using gadgets at an increasingly young age too with kids typically receiving their first smartphone aged 11, first games console aged nine and first iPad aged eight, although – perhaps surprisingly – more than six in 10 (61%) of children under the age of four have at least one gadget.

I can understand children receiving their first smartphone when they are 11. That is the age they start secondary school.....Becky got her first smartphone when she was 11 just so I could stay in touch with her when she was walking too and from school without me....Smartphones seem like the smart option. 

Becky has harped on that she wants and iPhone because all her friend have them. Have you seen the price of them? It is more than a months rent, even for an old one! We have convinced her we are an android family...

Over Christmas Becky got a new phone and Ellie has got her old one....If Becky didn't get a new phone Ellie wouldn't be getting one until she started secondary school...Ellie isn't connected to the internet and she has £10 credit which she shouldn't really use. The only people she will phone and text is Becky, her dad or me. My dad pays about £13 a month for us all to be connected as well as him and his girlfriend and we get free calls and texts to each other with the O2 family bolt on.

Thankfully my girls have never been one for games consoles....Becky harped on for an xBox and we got her one and up until Christmas she hardly used it....She got a couple of new games which has given her some interest in it again....There was a point where I used it more to watch You Tube videos. lol

When my girls were little they had no gadgets.....I think it's because things like tablets were not the big thing, they are now. I think if I had a younger child they would use technology like a tablet. They are handy to keep children amused when travelling or just for 5 minutes peace.

Do your children have gadgets and electronics? Do you argue over them?

Baking a rainbow cake...It was a bit of a fail.

Over the half term holidays I bought a Bakedin Rainbow Cake Mix it was one of those things we never got around to doing....I received a fabulous stand mixer to review so needed to make something fancier than a cake out of a packet mix....Last week the kids were off school and Ellie wanted to do some baking so I thought this would be easy for her to make.... 

To make you will need:

For the cake

4 medium eggs
250g unsalted butter + 20g for greasing
80ml milk

For the icing
500g icing sugar,
250g unsalted butter
40ml milk


Round baking tip approx 15cm or 20cm diameter
Wire rack
Baking paper


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan assisted/gas mark 4. Cut your baking paper to fit the base of the tin, securing with a little butter if required.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine 60g of soft butter with the contents of bag 1 until it forms a crumb consistency. Add 1 egg and 20ml of milk, mixing until smooth and creamy. Pour the mixture into a prepared tin and smooth out.

3. Bake the cake for 20-25 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean with no wet mixture on it. Leave in the tin for a few minutes then remove and place on a wire rack to cool fully.

4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 with bag 2, 3, and 4 using a clean bowl to mix in each time.

5. If you are making your own icing, cream 250g of soft butter in a large bowl until smooth. Add 500g of icing sugar gradually and mix well. Slowly add 40ml of milk until the butter cream is smooth but still enough to hold its shape.

6. Place the green cake layer on a plate or cake board, spoon around 4 tbsp of the icing onto the cake and spread evenly to the edges. Place the yellow cake on top. Continue alternating layers of icing and cake, using the orange and then the red layer.

7. Use the remaining icing to cover the top and sides of the cake, using the flat edge of a knife to smooth the surface.

I set Ellie to work and she did great....She measured everything and did all the mixing...I was only there to put the mixture in the tins and put them in the oven....

She had great fun but I did try to make things easier by not putting the baking paper in the base of the tin....The mixture stuck a little when it was baked in the tins and the layers were a little broken....You couldn't really tell though when it was covered in icing.....

We used ready made icing for inside the cake....It was a little hard to spread....We should have made our own to begin with.

It was a little wonky, the colours weren't as bright as I thought they were going to be and it was a little crumbly but cake is cake....

I made our own butter icing to go on the tops and the sides and it was so much easier to spread than the ready made one.....

It is far from perfect but I don't think it's bad for a first try....It tastes good though and that's all that matters....

I paid £5 for this cake mix which is way more than I'd normally pay and to be honest it really isn't worth it. It is on offer now for £3.75 from Tesco in case you did want to give it a try. We are going to try making our own from scratch with no ready mixes. I know I have plenty of food colouring in the cupboard so we can make each layer brighter too!

Have you made anything like this before?

Our Weekly Meal Plan!! - #mealplanningmonday

Last week I had planned on not getting a shopping delivery at all....Tesco wasn't delivering because of the weather and there was no slots available until Wednesday but we were running low on fresh food like milk, bread, fruit and snacky things for the fridge. I gave in and got a shop from Iceland. My slot was between 10 & 12 and they rang just after 9am to say they were going to a different store to collect a few things to complete my order.....I was shocked I thought they would have just said they weren't available. I was very pleased with the service. They went to so much effort to complete my order. Well done them!

We had an unexpected parents evening on Thursday so we called in the chip shop on the way home and on Friday I over ordered for the freezer and there was a bag of sausages I just couldn't get in so I made the sticky sausages with the Homepride Sticky Caramelised Onion Bbq Sauce. It's a favourite of ours....The kids had the pizza on Saturday and Stu & I had Chinese fakeaway from Iceland.

Tuesday is going to be a strange day.....Ellie is in the school performance of Beauty & the Beast and she has to be at the big school at 6pm and we are not expected to get home until after 9pm so the kids will have to eat early. I don't think I will be able to so will have something when I get in.

This week on the menu we have:

Monday - Chicken fajitas....
Wednesday - Creamy chicken pasta....
Thursday - Fish fingers, chips and spaghetti hoops....
Friday - Pizza....
Sunday - Mince and dumplings....

What will you be eating this week?

This isn't the photo I had planned! #MySundayPhoto

I usually just share one photo but I showed my fella this one and he asked if our professional photographer friend had taken it. She hadn't it was all me! I thought I better share it as I'm pretty proud of it. I was only taking a photo to show my dad how foggy it was....

The photo I had planned on sharing was this one....My Unicorn dinner set and table cloth that I bought from Asda....I ruddy love it, so do the kids. My fella hates it. hahaha

Week 10 - A photo everyday for a year. #Project365

What a week we've had....It hasn't been a bad one but it has been busy....There is no rest today as Ellie my youngest is at the practice for the school performance of Beauty & the Beast. She's in the choir. Lots of schools are coming together to put on the show and Ellie always has a fantastic time. Last year they did Joseph and they put on a great show.

Now for a photo every day....

62/365 - 3rd March
I finally got some bread after 2 days of going without because of the snow....

63/365 - 4th March
Stu was in the pound shop and saw these big Kinder eggs for £2.50 each. Everywhere else they seem to be about £5. They are being kept for Easter.

64/365 - 5th March
Sorry for the blurriness but it's the only photo I took on Monday. If I'd told Ellie once I'd told her 20 times to stop standing in front of the TV so she dropped down and started crawling past

65/365 - 6th March
I usually hate making phone calls but it turns out they are no problem when I am angry. I had to rearrange a hearing appointment for Ellie. 

66/365 - 7th March
I don't know what they were laughing about but something tickled them...

67/365 - 8th March
The dreaded walk to parents evening but it wasn't too bad....In fact it was very positive and helpful.

68/365 - 9th March
My Unicorn dinner set & tablecloth finally arrived. I bought it from Asda...

I started the week with no appointments then it got busy. #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is

I started the week with no appointments at all and as the week has gone on we've had a few and have more planned...

Tuesday we received a letter from the Audiology department for a check up on Ellie. In case you didn't know she is deaf in one ear. I have blogged about it in the past. As she gradually lost the hearing they like to keep a eye on her good one...

If you have followed my blog for a while whenever we get an appointment at the hospital they always give us it for about 9am which is no good....It takes us over two hours to get there and longer in rush hour! There is no way I'm leaving the house at 7am for a half an hour appointment. I got straight on the phone and spoke to a lovely woman who said she would speak to the specialist and see when he wanted to see us....He told her a different day but the same time! She said stuff him and just made us a sensible timed appointment in the late afternoon and in the Easter holidays so there is no missing school....

Also on Tuesday I got a phone call from a woman from CYPS (Children and Young People's Service) who wanted to come and see Stu and I about Ellie's suspected AutismShe came and spoke to us for a good hour and a half and I never thought talking about your own child could be so draining.....Everything from my pregnancy with her and right up until now was discussed....There was a ton of questions and a lot of thinking on mine and Stu's part....

The woman said it doesn't look like Ellie has Autism....It does look like there are issues with school but because she doesn't show signs at home it doesn't seem like Autism. To her it seems Ellie's lack of concentration at school is down to her the deafness in one of her ears but she did agree that Ellie does need extra help in school....We are going to look into getting Ellie an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). At the end of the meeting I was left feeling frustrated. The CYPS woman was saying completely different things to what other people have told us....I have been back on the phone to the school nurse to deal with an issue that she said CYPS would deal with but they don't....It's not anything serious but as much as I blog about Ellie I do like to keep some things private....So another appointment will be coming up with her.

Last night we had parents evening....I was dreading it but it was really positive. Ellie did OK in her mock SATs. Way better than expected in some subjects but there was still places where she struggled which we expected. We will be getting extra work for her to do at home like spellings but we can make it fun so she will be more interested in learning...There is a learner support worker who comes in once a week to help Ellie with emotional development which will be sat with Ellie during her SATs to keep her working and writing....

We spoke to the head about getting a Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and that's fine and sensory support woman for her deafness back. They are willing to do anything to help Ellie. We mentioned about what the CYPS woman said and was really shocked that she formed an opinion about Ellie without even seeing or meeting her. The head is on a mission to get Ellie help and will be making phone calls tomorrow....

Ellie has a busy weekend. Next week it is the school performance of Beauty and the Beast where lots of schools come together and my girl is in the choir...Last weekends rehearsal on Sunday was cancelled due to the snow so they are having it today. It's going to be a long day for her but she loves the choir. Then tomorrow she is back again for more practice.

Tales from my teenage years...

I wrote a blog post last year about my teen Becky and how she was shielded from things....I mentioned that I cringe at what I was doing when I was 14/15. These are a few of the stories of what I got up to when I was her age.....I really hope my dad doesn't read this. Come to think of it I really hope Becky doesn't read it either.....

When I was about 14 years old I lived on a farm.....About a mile away from the nearest small village. My best friend lived in the village....One weekend we decided to have a little fun. She said she was sleeping at mine and I said she was sleeping at her house.....It was nothing strange. One of us would always be at the other persons house over the weekend....We had plans of sleeping in a little hut we had made a couple of years before on the furthest field away from the farmhouse I lived....

We left our house in normal clothes with little shorts and tight tops underneath. We took the frumpy clothes off and hid them in a hedge and went off to meet some boys from the next village over....They had bottles of Castaway. The first alcopop I can remember drinking. lol I may have also stolen some Gin from my dad....Oops.

The night ended with my friend running down a hill and twisting her ankle badly. We ended up back at her house and a trip to A&E. This was at about 2am. Her mother was furious. Thankfully my parents never found out even when I toddled the mile back home, with barely any sleep and my first ever hangover. I seriously thought I was dying but couldn't tell my parents....

That same year I thought bunking off school was cool....When my parents found out it wasn't.....I bumped into my dads friend and just ran. He casually mentioned he'd seen me to my mam and all hell broke loose.....In hindsight if I had stopped and talked to him he probably would have said nothing.....I was grounded for 3 weeks! My dad took me into school and told them I had bunked off school and they looked into their attendance records and saw I had quite a few days off over a few months. They were all unknown to my parents....I had a month of detentions after school but that led onto another problem.....

I was in year 9 having a month of detentions and was mixing with older boys.....Those in year 11. Obviously they had older friends...Friends with cars. My parents would not have approved of me riding about with 17 and 18 year old's but thankfully they didn't know and the boys were sensible drivers. Phew! 

We won't even go into the this was around the time I started smoking....Well actually when I was about 12 or 13. The amount of detentions I had for smoking on the school grounds was crazy....I used to tell my parents the detentions were for not doing my homework which seemed more acceptable. 

Did you get up to any mischief in your teenage years?

Trying Adagio Teas....

I have a couple of cups of tea a day....Always from a tea bag and never loose tea until now. I was recently sent a selection of teas to try from Adagio Teas....

At Adagio Teas they offer fresh, delicious loose teas sourced directly from the artisan farmers who tender them. They have such a huge range to choose from which are brimming with nutrients with no added sugar and all-natural flavours. They are also vegan and gluten free. Any flavours are from essential oils and the traditional teas are pure leaves. 

I have never made or drank loose leaf tea so all of this was new to me....The samplers looked a good place to start.

Whether you're new to tea or have been drinking tea for years sampler sets are perfect for expanding your knowledge and stepping outside of your comfort zone. The themed taster packs now come in pretty boxes and make for ideal gifts....

Each box costs between 6 & 8 pounds depending on which you choose and contains 4 different flavours of teas. You get around 10 cups of each flavour which is 40 cups per box....The bags are resealable which is very handy.

Some of the flavours include:

Mango Green - Vegetal goodness of China green tea and floral flavour of ripe mango. Juicy, creamy finish, candy sweet.
White Blueberry - Juicy blueberry flavour and white tea from Fujian, China. Very fragrant, soft mouthfeel, refreshing finish.
Coconut - Creamy texture of fresh coconut flavour with the balanced brightness of Ceylon. Perfectly sweet and very well-blended.
Tiger Eye - Our tiger eye blend will tickle your palate with rich notes of chocolate and caramel. Enjoy it in lieu of or with your favourite indulgence.
Blackberry - Ceylon black tea infused with sweetly tart berries. Floral-fruity and bakey aroma, like fresh berry scones.
Berry Blast - A delicious blend of natural fruits and spices. Bold and slightly tart flavour, with a juicy clean finish.
Earl Grey Moonlight - The comforting flavours of vanilla and cream combine to soften the citrus notes of traditional Earl Grey.

I was sent quite a few accessories to start me off on my loose tea drinking journey....

IngenuiTEA XL teapot, also called iced ingenuiTEA, is the most convenient device for brewing loose leaf tea, whether hot or iced. Add leaves, pour hot water and let them steep. When ready, simply place it atop your cup. This will cause a valve at the bottom to release: crystal-clear tea flows down, while the mesh filter retains all the tea leaves. The tea brewer is also super easy to clean - just rinse it out with water or pop it into the dishwasher. You will wonder how you got along without one. The larger version of the ingenuiTEA teapot is also BPA-free and fits all cups up to 11.5cm in diameter.

This is so fancy....It seems larger than a normal tea cup and is perfect for a delicious cup of tea.

IngenuiTEA teapot is the most convenient device for brewing loose leaf tea - we guarantee it. Add leaves, pour hot water and let them steep. When ready, simply place it atop your cup. This will cause a valve at the bottom to release: crystal-clear tea flows down, while the mesh filter retains all the tea leaves. The tea brewer is also super easy to clean - just rinse it out with water or pop it into the dishwasher. You will wonder how you got along without one. Dishwasher safe. Capacity: 470ml.

An ideal 'have tea anywhere' set that combines a glass tea mug with a removable stainless steel infuser. In addition to being convenient, it is also loads of fun: watch the leaves dance as they infuse a perfect cup of tea. When done, remove the infuser (the cover doubles as a coaster) and have a perfect cup of tea wherever, and whenever, the mood strikes. Perfect for home or office use. Dishwasher safe. Capacity: 400ml. Diameter: 8.5cm.

These two are by far my favourite tea drinking accessories to use....They are just the right size and the glass mug is so quick and easy to use. I thought using loose tea was such a faff but these have proved me wrong...

Over the last couple of weeks I have been working my way through all of these teas. There is some I have loved and some I have not been so keen on but it's all down to my personal taste...For example I thought I would love the chocolate chip flavour but I wasn't keen and I thought I would hate the Citron green which is Chinese green tea with the delicate flavours of lemon and lime but it really surprised me....It was so good.

I still have a few left to try but I can highly recommend Adagio Teas....There is something for all tastes and moods.

Do you drink loose tea? What is your favourite flavour?

I was sent all these products in exchange for this blog post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
