Prestige Flowers

Dear Mother's,

I'm writing to all you mother's out there to let you know that you are amazing. We as mother's stress ourselves out over everything and as a result many of us have serious mum guilt, I know I do. We feel bad if we work and we feel bad if we don't. Sometimes they kids become too much and we shout at them and then cry and feel guilty for making them feel sad. Some days we simply don't have time to make them the healthiest meal so chicken nuggets will do.

We run around after everyone with barely a minute to ourselves, but we wouldn't change it because their cuddles make it worth the while. We swap boozy nights out for a night in with a bottle of wine and catch up TV, peppa is off now they are sleeping. If they need new clothes we make ours last that little bit longer, holes in clothes is fashionable now.

So mums take a seat and put your feet up drink that wine and have an early night.

 

Don't forget to say that big Thanks to your mum after all she felt the same as you at some point. I always like to give my mum flowers like these ones from Prestige Flowers. It's not something she get's very often and they always make her smile.

These beautiful flowers are delivered fresh they look and smell amazing. When looking to find that perfect bunch you will see that some come with little extra's such as a box of chocolates or a teddy bear. Prestige Flowers has something to suit everyone and every budget.

Say Thanks Mum with some beautiful flowers this year.

What They're Reading: January

My children love to read and I love to read to them and with them. Jared has always had an interest in reading and luckily as he has got to school and started reading himself his love of books has grown and spread to his younger sister. Eryn's book collection is growing slowly and she has her favourites already often carrying it over saying 'my book' which indicates she wants to snuggle down and be read to.

As there are so many benefits for children to be read to and for them to read I want to share each month what my children are reading, and encourage other parent's to grab a book a blanket and a comfy spot where they can enjoy reading with their child. Of course we read many books so we will be picking just one per month to share with you.

This month Jared has been reading: Farm
We rate this 5/5


Jared got this book for Christmas, I had never see this book before and on first glance I thought it was a flap book. The book is as you can guess about farm's and everything to do with farm's which is good for children who don't get a chance to visit a farm or like Jared love's farm's. The book has a feature called a flashlight I have never experienced this before but it is really good fun, you have a magic torches (not real) and you move them over the film to discover objects and animals. This is a book that teaches, has little games in and is just overall a fun book for any child to enjoy.

This month Eryn has been reading: That's not my unicorn.
We rate this 4/5


This was given as a Christmas gift and Eryn is loving it, and why wouldn't she it has unicorn's in! The book is a board book and each page is full of colour, sparkles and something to touch, it's classed as a touchy feely book. There is so much for Eryn to take from each page along with listening to me read she can feel the pages and the different textures and there is a cute little mouse on each page for her to spot. We have given the book 4/5 and this is because the book has a unicorn in that has wings and we all know that unicorns don't have wings that would be Alicorn.

51. Do you believe in the power of positive thinking? No and I will tell you why, I lived with the positive thinking for two years and during them two years everything negative that could of happened did happen.
