My Fabulous Bubble Bum Giveaway **ENDED**

Written by mummybird. Posted in Finished Giveaways, Review, The Birds

We have been a big fan of the Bubble Bum booster car seats since the day they were launched. In the past I have lent my Bubble Bum to other parents at our school when they have needed it for holidays because they fit perfect in between two toddler car seats. I always keep one in the boot of my car just in case I need an extra seat for my nieces and nephews or the childrens friends when they come home from school for tea with us.


Nothing Says Easter more than a Lovely Half Leg of New Zealand Lamb

Written by mummybird. Posted in Review, Review - Food and Drink, The Birds

Nothing quite says Easter more than a Lovely Half Leg of New Zealand Lamb. The children think Easter is about eggs, chocolate, bunnies and chicks but for adults or should I say for me and Mr M Easter is more about a lovely roast dinner. I was given a fantastic opportunity to cook an Easter Roast Lamb dinner following a recipe and then sharing it with my readers so here goes.


Discount Supplements Easter Treats – Gluten Free Cupcakes

Written by mummybird. Posted in Review - Food and Drink, The Birds

Last week I was offered the chance to try out a recipe for some Gluten Free Cupcakes. I have always wondered what Gluten Free cakes taste like so I thought I would give them a shot. One of the mums from my childrens school is Gluten Free and she posts lovely photos of cakes, biscuits and treats that she makes on her Facebook page and they are all Gluten Free and look lovely. Its something I have always wanted to try so I can compare them to my normal style of cupcakes that I make so this week I decided to make some Gluten Free Easter Cupcakes.

Zoingo Boingo

Written by mummybird. Posted in Review, Review - Toys

When I was offered the opportunity to review the Zoingo Boingo we literally jumped at the chance. Instantly memories from my childhood came flooding back to me of when I was little bouncing around the park on my Pogo Ball it was called back in my day. The Zoingo Boingo is like the old Pogo balls but it has a stretchy attachment and handle. Its definitely a new way to have fun and keep fit at the same time.


Surprise …….

Written by mummybird. Posted in The Birds

The last weekend in February was approaching fast and I knew I was running out of time. I had big plans up my sleeve and I had to get things ready because I was not going to wait another 4 years for this date to come around again. Four weeks ago I received a text offering me an amazing deal on a weekend away at our favourite place so I took the bull by the horns and booked it, I then rang Mr M and told him that we were going away for a long weekend and he needed to book two half days off of work. What HE did not know was this weekend was about change our lives forever.

So three weeks ago myself and Mr M went away for a romantic break we jumped into the car Friday afternoon, had a quick stop at the hospital on the way for an appointment about his impending knee surgery that he was having in a couple of weeks and then we headed off to the coast. We arrived at our accommodation around tea time and jumped straight into the hot tub to relax and unwind. We sat in there for hours chatting and laughing under the stars surrounded by nothing but trees and darkness and this man had no idea what was about to come.

Our Weekend of Pain

Written by mummybird. Posted in The Birds

On Friday last week Mr M went into hospital for an operation on his knee. He was the first one into day surgery that day and I think he must have been the first one kicked out of hospital that afternoon. At 1pm I picked Mr M up from hospital ready to bring him home so he could rest, he has had major surgery on his knee again following a skiing accident he had 8 years ago. I managed to get him home ok but as soon as his bum hit the bed in the lounge that I had made up for him he has not been able to move.
