Innocent Alphabet Champions Letter S

We love innocent and all their goodies, but especially their smoothies, so we were thrilled to be asked to be innocent Champions on their Back to School alphabet campaign.

This lovely parcel arrived, aren’t we lucky…

This year, innocent are running an on pack promotion so that everyone can receive their own name in magnets. I loved putting mine up on the fridge when it arrived.

Littlebit was equally as thrilled with her full alphabet set. Especially as they are concentrating on phonics at play school at the moment. She took great delight in telling me what all the letters are and putting them on her magnetic board in the correct order.

Being able to receive your own name in magnets from innocent is especially fab as kids never have enough magnets of the right letters to spell their full names. All the details of this promotion are on the packs, but it’s really easy. Once you’ve collected 6 (or more) barcodes you just need to send it over to the guys at innocent Towers, and they’ll send you out three names.

What’s more, on the innocent website you can also take part in a really fun ‘design your own innocent alphabet’ competition. Click here to find out more.

So, we were assigned the letter “S”, a great coincidence as this week that’s the letter they’ve been focusing on in the play school phonics sessions.

So we set about finding thing that begin with the letter “S” on the theme back to school.

We also created an “S” themed YumBox for one lunch at play school. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you’ll have noticed that I’m pretty obsessed with our YumBoxes so I was really pleased that they fit snugly inside our new innocent lunch box with just enough room for a smoothie too.

In her “S” themed YumBox Littlebit had…

Sausages, star shaped bread, spaghetti cheese, sweetcorn, strawberries, fruit stars, sugar and sprinkle sandwiches, a jelly snake and an innocent smoothie.

Mediflow water pillow: review

A few months ago I was sent a Mediflow water pillow for review.

You’ll know if you’re a regular reader, or know me personally, that I am always honest about products if I like or hate them. So, I have to admit I was dubious about this. Previously I had a sprung pillow which worked ok for me. I suffer from back pain from an intercostal muscle injury, and often the pain makes me sleep a bit lop sided and therefore I end up with pains in my neck too.

The water pillow has really helped.

It took me a while to get the right amount of water in there, each morning I added more and more until, I think, it has the maximum it can hold, which makes it pretty rigid, but actually really comfortable. The instructions, which come wrapped around the pillow, are really easy to follow and you get a little funnel to help get the water in there.


I find the pillow really comfortable, and like I say it has most definitely helped with my neck pain. So it’s a winner!

Looking back on summer 2014


Well, Littlebit is well and truly back into the routine of playschool with her 4th day back today and I had begun to forget the joys of our summer until I did our “what did you do over the summer” sheets for playschool.

We had play dates galore…


Our fabulous holiday to Coombe Mill

Spent loads of time with friends and family…


And of course day trips too…


Littlebit's summer

What a wonderful summer to #embracehappy!

Our exciting news about Butlin’s

I’ve had to keep this under my hat as our contract with Center Parcs, who we have been Ambassadors for this last year hadn’t quite finished. We have loved working with Center Parcs and really enjoyed our stay with them back in March, which you can see here.

Onto the exciting news though. This year, I am THRILLED to announce, we are going to be Butlin’s Ambassadors. I used to visit Butlin’s as a child but I haven’t been in over 10 years so I am totally excited to be able to go again and be an Ambassador for them this year.

Butlins Family Holidays

Littlebit is going to adore it there, she’s already been watching all of the videos on their YouTube channel and asking what Billy is up to on Facebook and Twitter.

We are lucky enough to have two holidays with them to look forward to. One in December (I am already counting down the days) and one in June next year.

I also wanted to share something pretty exciting with you. Butlin’s Christmas Just for Tots break offer is back. 

Christmas Just for Tots

A Christmas Just For Tots break starts from only £53 per person based on 2 adults and 2 children (under 2s go free). Breaks start on Monday 15th December for 4 nights at Butlin’s Bognor Regis and Skegness. The breaks are specifically designed to suit the needs of families with preschoolers and as such are within term time. 

This special Christmas Just for Tots break offers you the chance to experience the very best of Butlin’s Festive Winter Wonderland and enjoy the magic of the festive season. As with all of Butlin’s Just for Tots breaks there will be loads of preschool aimed music, shows, activities and characters (including Mike the Knight, Thomas & Friends, Bob The Builder, Angelina Ballerina, Barney, Fireman Sam and the Skyline Gang including Billy and Bonnie Bear) there too. There’s even an indoor snowstorm and an ice rink!

Christmas Just for Tots Father Christmas

I kind of wish we’d booked in for one of these rather than later in December now! Though I’m positive we’ll still have fab fun at the Christmas Party break we’ve booked in for at Bognor Regis Ocean Hotel.

I am a #ButlinsAmbassador and will be receiving two complimentary stays as part of my Butlins Ambassador role, however all views and opinions are my own. I will occasionally share information from Butlin’s which I think will be of interest to my readers.
