Top Tips For Planning A Birthday Party

Over the years we have had so many different types of birthday parties for big J. We have had everything from play area's to go karting. Planning a boy's birthday party can be a tricky task and now that he is older it hasn't got any easier. After a certain age the idea of having a number of kids around to play in your home can become boring, if not daunting. We have compiled some great ideas which are sure to make any boy's birthday party memorable.

Celebrating Little J's 3rd Birthday

If you follow me on social media you will already know that Little J's birthday didn't go exactly as planned as a few days before he got Chicken Pox. It's just typical isn't it especially when you have lots of fun and exciting things planned and he had waited so long for his birthday. As you can imagine he wasn't feeling great and probably celebrating was the last thing on his mind, but we did try to make his birthday and the days after as special as we could.

I'm Off To Have Tea Party With The Gruffalo

As most will probably know by now poor little J's birthday didn't go exactly as we had hoped as he had Chicken Pox. He is only just now starting to feel better now which is so sad because he missed his special day. However we did make a fuss of him for about a week later enjoying special treats, presents, visits from family and friends and lots of cake. We were sent a lovely Gruffalo party pack from House of Party which originally was meant to be for his nursery party but as he was ill we have had quite a few tea parties at home.

Birthday Soccer Blast At Goals

Big J has had a birthday party most years and we have done everything from bowling to a double decker play bus outside our house. I love birthday parties but I guessed this year big J wouldn't want a 'party' as he will be 13 soon and maybe he would want to just do something with a few of his friends. I was almost right he did want to do something with his friends but he didn't want to make a big deal out of it. I guess its not cool to have a birthday party with balloons and stuff when you are turning 13.

Brewers Fayre Birthday Meal

To help celebrate having two birthdays back to back in May, we had a lovely family meal at Brewers Fayre. We have been to Brewers Fayre many times over the years and like most pubs and restaurants they are constantly improving the menu so it was nice to try out their Chef's Counter.

Happy 2nd Birthday

I honestly cannot believe that my little J is two today. It only seems like yesterday that I found out I was pregnant. Excitement filled my body and I prayed that the 9 months would fly past quickly and everything would be okay.
I was induced at 38 weeks and two days after entering the hospital little J was born weighing 8lbs10oz
Here are some photos of Little J's first two years in the world

What To Buy A Two Year Old

Little J's birthday is approaching very quickly. i can't believe my little monkey will be two in two weeks. Eek. Where has the time gone?

Ive been browsing some possibilities for presents. There is just so much to choose from, I really don't know where to start. he are a few I've come up with.
Little J loves playing shop so a little Shopping Trolley would be perfect. He loves pushing his pram and trolleys so I know he would have lots of fun with this. It comes complete with 80 pieces of food too so perfect to set up a little shopping area.

Project 365 Days 26-32

 Here is our Project 365 for this week. Can't believe we are in February already.

26/365 - There are lots of bugs going round at the moment so Daddy steamed the house from top to bottom.

27/365 - Little J has been testing out Peppa Pig's - Grandpa Pig's Holiday Boat. Keep and eye out for our review.

28/365 - Big J enjoying a nice pre birthday meal with his Grandad

29/365 - Today is my Dad's birthday. We gave him his presents and ate some cake.

30/365 - Little J's new shoes and leg cast arrived at the hospital today so we went to collect them both. I know they don't look like the nicest pair of shoes but if it they fit around his toe and support his walking then thats all that matters.

31/365 - Today was a tidy the house day while big J went the cinema with his friends to see Big Hero 6

32/365 - We found some leftover snow today so little J decided to dive in it, head first.

Happy 1st Birthday Prince George

Where does the time go? Today Prince George is celebrating his first birthday.  I couldn't actually believe a year has gone by since he was born.
 
I think Kate and William are excellent parents and I love seeing photos of them all together as a family. Kate has done a brilliant job as a new mummy and gets stuck in like the rest of us. She really reminds me of Diana and I hope she stays that way. Prince George always looks so happy and content
 
It did get me thinking about time and how time really does fly. Before I know it little J will be starting nursery and my big J will be starting year 8.
 
I am looking forward to spending the summer holidays with my two monkeys. I love spending quality time with them both and even though the age gap is 11 years we always find somewhere or something that suits them both.
 
Its so important to treasure every minute because before you know it they are not little ones anymore.
 
Happy Birthday Prince George

Birthday Wishes Come True

Well last week both big J and I celebrated our birthdays. We received some amazing presents and its fair to say we got spoilt. I thought it would be nice to share some of the lovely presents we received and say a huge big THANK YOU

The Lion King Tickets - I wasn't expecting these at all and I'm so excited. I have wanted to see this for years and I really cannot wait.


Both big J and I love board games. Big J is Star Wars mad so was happy to receive Star Wars Clone Wars Monopoly and I got DESTINATION New York

Big J loves his xbox and was totally shocked when he got a new headset. He loves talking to his friends online so this was a perfect gift

He spent a few hours making this Star Wars Lego.

Agnes is so cute and has a new home sitting on my sofa.

Big J's birthday wouldn't be the same without a few balls

I got ALL the Disney Shoes I wanted and I love them.

This made me laugh. I tasted a Kit Kat Chunky Peanut Butter for the first time a few weeks ago and for my birthday big J decided to get me 36 bars :)

Lots of Disney Traditions Showcase Collection Figurines



Pals for all time


World Cup Fever is starting to take over our house. Big J wearing NIKE Netherlands Kit


These are stunning and are made by Swarovski



My  favourite present a personalised mug and coaster of my two monkeys

Mummy's Birthday Wish List

My birthday is just around the corner and I am probably one of the hardest people to buy for. I like lots of things but I really don't like people spending money on me. I don't know why but its just the way I am. So whenever anyone (including Daddy) asks me what I want my response is always 'nothing, I'm okay'.
