Last night my son and I made unicorn hot chocolate and it was the absolute bomb. It’s not often I write about food or drink but with the kids at school today I kept thinking about how damn good it was and I thought, well, I’ll just make another one for myself because who says kids should get all the cool stuff?! As a January treat this is even better though because it’s a low fat unicorn hot chocolate – yep – all the pretty without any of the guilt, even my super-strict-dieting husband gave one of these a go. They’re also super easy to make which means you and your kids can follow this unicorn hot chocolate recipe together.
I love my children but there are days when they drive me absolutely crazy. So far today there’s been complaints about what’s for breakfast, the predictable refusal to wear shoes and a complete meltdown about the way fringes just hang in your face like that and that’s before 10am. I try to keep my calm but I am not the super chilled out zen parent I hoped I’d be. It is, however something that I’m really trying to work on this year so I thought I’d share my best tips for keeping calm when your kids are driving you crazy.
I must admit that over the last year I’ve become a bit obsessed with glamping. We’d been before in Essex but once we moved to the South West it seemed like the perfect way to explore, get the kids outside and of course have fun! There are loads of places to go glamping in Cornwall but these are some of my favourites – all of these glamping sites are places that we’ve been to or are on our to-do list to visit shortly!
Sometimes it’s that you can’t face the cue at the post office, sometimes it’s because you want to send a gift that will last all year, either way I think subscriptions make brilliant gifts for people. Today I’m sharing 5 subscriptions that will make perfect gifts with ideas for subscriptions for kids, subscription boxes for grown ups and even the one I find the most tricky – ideas what to buy your parents!
Visiting Santa has been a bit nerve wracking this year, last year my son noticed that one of the Santa’s he saw was wearing a fake beard so obviously couldn’t be Santa and this started to make him question the whole thing. Not so much that he didn’t believe any more, but enough that he knew that it wasn’t Santa he saw. So seeing Santa this year has been with a bit of trepidation this year. Would it be the Santa who helped him believe in the magic or a bloke with a stick on beard that took the magic away? So when we were invited to review Breakfast with Santa at Wyevale Garden Centre I was excited, but also a little nervous.
