Easter Bento Lunch

Hi everyone I hope you're all having a lovely Easter Sunday! After recently jumping on the Bento Bandwagon a couple of weeks ago I have been enjoying making these boxes and Amelia has been eating slightly better than she used to! I made Amelia an Easter themed Bento lunch yesterday which went down a treat! It's amazing how a sandwich cut differently can taste better than just cut into ordinary squares and how crackers can taste nicer presented in a pretty cup rather than just spread out on a plate. 

Featured in Amelia's Easter Bento Lunch:
  • Popcorn
  • Vanilla Yoghurt With Easter Sprinkles
  • Oddities Cheese Cracker Bites
  • Strawberries 
  • Baby Carrot Sticks
  • Sliced Banana (Inside Plastic Egg)
  • Dairylea Sandwich Cut Into a Bunny 

Keep an eye out for more Bento posts coming soon, I've had many questions about them and a lot of you have wanted to start too which I love to hear. I would highly recommend trying them if your child is a fussy eater, as I've seen a slight improvement with Amelia so far. 

Have you tried Bento Lunches with your little ones? If so let me know below as I'd love to check out your creations.

Have a lovely Easter!

Girls Day Out

I haven't taken Amelia out for the day on my own whilst Andy's at work for quite some time partially due to having no car as since we have moved it's not as easy to get to places on foot. Yesterday morning I made the decision to take Amelia out for the day as the sun was shining and I'm working tomorrow so I wanted to make the most of the sun while it lasts! After we dropped Andy off at work we took a half hour drive over to Llanberis which is a lovely little village not far from us. We have taken Amelia a few times last year when we lived closer especially over the summer as there's quite a bit to do there.

Family Thursday - Fairies & Train Rides

Yesterday we were looking forward to a family day out as we were both off work and now have a car we wanted to get out for the day. We had hoped that the weather would have been as nice as it has been all week but I guess it had other ideas, it didn't rain but it was very cloudy and cold. Not quite the sunny day we had planned. We still decided to make the most of it and headed to Gypsy Wood Park which is a lovely little outdoor activity park for children. 

We left the pushchair in the car and let Amelia was as we thought it would be better for her to see everything, she loved running around and also wanted to hold our hands most of the time. We saw goats, donkeys, ponies, chickens and all sorts of animals. I think Amelia was most impressed by the goats as she keep saying "baaaaaa" at them ha ha! She even wanted to stroke them too as well as the donkeys. We even went on a little train around the park which she loved and kept saying "choo choo". 

The park is full of fairies and animals so there was plenty to see. Amelia even milked a cow and also threw money into the wishing well. We stayed for a good few hours but as it was pretty cold we left just before 2pm. We will definitely take her again sometime when the weather is nicer as it's a lovely little park with plenty of activities for toddlers and children. 

Future Office Plans

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 

One of the last rooms to be decorated in our house is the spare room/office, it's the smallest room in the house so has kind of been used as a storage room more than anything since we moved in. It's full of piles of boxes and items which don't have a home. I have been meaning to sort it out ever since we move in back in September but i've just never got round to doing so. It already has a desk so there's a starting point for the office, and I would just need to decorate and purchase a few more items.

Jellycat Review | Dance Bunny Dance

I've always been a fan of Jellycat, even before Amelia was born and I discovered the brand when I  pregnant I came across one of their bunnies and bought it for Amelia before she was born. However what I didn't know was that they sold other products other than soft toys! That was until the lovely people over at Jellycat got in touch and asked whether we would be interested in reviewing their board book range.
