Buy Tshirts Online Review


We were lucky enough to receive a Tshirt printing pack from Buytshirtsonline.co.uk it came in time with half term last week so the kids got stuck in with this fun activity on designing and printing their own tshirts!

The Tshirts are branded 'Froot of the Loom' lovely quality and come in a great range of sizes & 
colours from toddler- adult.

There are many different types transfers to choose from screen printing, embroidery, digital and heat transfers.

The kids had a lot of fun designing their own Tshirts this would be great for a birthday party or holiday activity to keep the kids entertained. 



We received 2 white Tshirts , some fabric paint pens and 2 iron on transfers.



Violet got stuck in with decorating her tshirt!





Printing the transfers on to the tshirts were very simple by laying the transfer picture facing down on the tshirt and rubbing a hot iron over the top for a few minutes, remember to turn the steam off, and pull off the backing once cool. 


Alister was very pleased with the outcome of his own Tshirt, he put in so much effort and it turned out brilliant!

Valentines Weekend 2015

 Hey Everyone! I hope you all had a great Valentines weekend whether you 'celebrate' it or not!
I really wanted to share with you what we got up to since had had a no Vlogging weekend! It just generally feels more relaxing taking photos for me and i love looking back at them!

Ok so we started off our Saturday with some yummy strawberry pancakes the video is below!
Haven't made them in months and the kids loved them and they are healthy so a win win!


Graham had to milk and get lots of other work done because we were heading out for the day/night so i got the kiddies to make him some cute Vday cards which they really enjoyed! I brought some cute heart stickers x2 for £1 from £1 store a few weeks ago! Kept them entertained for ages!



We set up some chocolate treats and balloons for when daddy got back!




Graham got me lots of chocolate which was definitely needed since Aunt flow was just around the corner :( and he brought me a very thoughtful gift which was a rose bush to plant in the garden!

Unknown to Graham i had booked Urban Reef for lunch one of my absolute favourite places to go at Boscombe beach as well as a night in The Sand Banks Hotel with dinner and breakfast!
I know i kind of splurged but i thought you know what he treated me to Paris and i just feel like he works so hard for what we have, i feel very lucky to stay at home and i just wanted to show him a small bit of appreciation for how much he does for us as a family. 
Working on a family run farm 7 days a week is total dedication and he definitely deserves a relaxing evening when he can!






We had a lovely stroll around Bournemouth went into a few shops than headed to the hotel.
It was our first time to stay in the Sand Banks Hotel but I've had many people recommend it.
I have to say the room, staff and food were amazing couldn't fault one thing..
Ok apart from getting to our room! 
We stayed in room 323 at the top, there was a lift but not quite to the top! 
We had a beautiful room with balcony with some stunning views over poole quay.

Dettol Baby Blanket Donation..





As a mum of two healthy children i feel very lucky and privileged to bring them up in a clean and healthy environment, from clean clothes, clean water, food and warmth.

As you may or may not be aware that Dettol has come together with Rachel Stevens and set up the 'baby blanket donation' website to help those children in need of all those important things mentioned above that they just don't have.



Dettol & Rachel are encouraging mums to 'keep the memories, not the Bacteria' by donating a blanket via free post and sharing their own special recollections via social media.

Dettol Anti-bacteria laundry cleanser have pledged to donate £1 for every blanket collected to children's medical research charity, Sparks to raise much needed funds for UK families with children who are effected by series illness or disability.

Every minute of every day, approximately 50 babies are born into poverty and will experience conditions lacking basic essentials including hygienically clean blankets.  Poor hygiene conditions can contribute to illnesses such as diarrhoea, vomiting and dehydration.

Laboratory tests commissioned by Dettol - on washed blankets donated by volunteer mums - show that baby ‘blankies’ carry a variety of bacteria even after a 40°C wash with a third of the washed blankets harbouring coliforms – a group of bacteria linked to faeces. Dettol is hoping to raise awareness of this research as well as donate much needed funds to support children’s health.
Rachel commented: “The Dettol Baby Blanket Donation really resonated with me as a mum. I remember bringing my girls home for the first time in theirs and what a special time that was.  Many babies across the world will never get the chance to experience the comfort of a warm, clean blanket.  That’s the reason why I’m supporting the campaign, asking mums to donate blankets to those in need so that those babies don’t miss out.”
Zillah Bingley, Chief Executive at Sparks, said: “We’re delighted to be part of this exciting campaign. By working together with Dettol we can make sure more children are born healthy and stay healthy. One in 30 babies in the UK is born with a condition which may affect them for life. Yet, each year less than £10 per child is spent on research into children’s health. Sparks funds pioneering research to change this. Our medical breakthroughs improve the health of thousands of children but this is only possible thanks to the generous support of individuals and families across the UK.”
Blanket donations will be collected until the end of December.  Memories can be shared with @DettolBlanket #sharethememories or on Dettol’s Mission for Health Facebook page. 
So what are you waiting for dig out those unwanted blankets and send them to this amazing cause here- For full details on how to donate please visit Dettol Donate
