Siblings {October 2019}

I only realised late last night that it was Siblings day yesterday. There may not be a linky for this post anymore but I still like to do an update on LP and Little Man each month, something I’ve been doing since the start of 2014. It’s a nice tradition and one that has seen the children grow from a baby and toddler to the little people they are today. It’s been such a privilege to watch them grow and document their relationship month on month too.

Autumn Ready: Slow Cooker Pumpkin Hot Chocolate | AD

*This is a paid post as part of my role as a Studio.co.uk Ambassador

It’s safe to say that Autumn is by far my favourite season. It’s my birthday in autumn, I feel at home with the colours of autumn and I get to layer up, wear comfy clothes and snuggle in blankets when I’m at home. Along with that is the seasonal food of autumn – dinners with gravy, hearty puddings with custard and pumpkin flavours everywhere.

Everybody’s Best Friend Waffle Soft Toy – Waffle the Wonder Dog Review

Disclosure: We were sent the featured products for the purpose of this post however all opinions are my own.

I don’t mind admitting that I’m a little out of touch with children’s TV. I know the shows from my childhood and I know the shows that the children loved when they were toddlers – when we’d watch the same show on repeat for hours. But now that the children are a little older I lose track of what they’re watching, the characters and the theme tunes. But, when the Everybody’s Best Friend Waffle Soft Toy turned up at the door Little Man and LP sang me the theme tune and looked so happy. He’s obviously one of the latest CBeebies TV characters and they know him far better than I do!

LP and Little Man absolutely love How to Train Your Dragon. They have a cuddly Toothless, watch the movies on repeat and love the spin off TV shows like Dragons Riders of Berk too. So when the Hatching Toothless toy from the Dreamworks Dragons franchise arrived to review they couldn’t have been more excited.

It’s that time of year where kids are getting excited about Halloween, bonfire night and all things spooky.

Staying at Travelodge London Clapham Junction

Disclosure: We were invited on this break for the purpose of this review however all opinions are my own.

On Saturday I had a very early start for Tough Mudder and so Travelodge kindly invited Lauren and I to stay with them the night before at their London Clapham Junction hotel. Just a few minutes walk from Clapham Common it was perfectly situated for our trip and I don’t think I’ve ever stayed in a Travelodge before.
