Baking fun and Giveaway

C and I have had some baking fun over the weekend as you might have seen on our #MySundayPhoto post this week. Well there is no excuse like Easter to get the mixer out and make some cakes.

C loves to help me bake and she is now getting good at telling me what ingredients I need next, being the official taste tester and of course helping clean up by licking the beater.

We made Easter cupcakes to share with family and friends, What do you think?

As baking is one of my hobbies and I blog about it a fair bit I thought that I would give away a selection of baking goodies to get you started or help you on your baking journey with children,

I think baking is a perfect rain day activity, and can be used to teach children new skills, as well as improve upon things like counting, and as a bonus you have something edible at the end to enjoy or to give away as gifts.

Here is the bundle of baking goodies that I will be giving away as part of our 2nd blogaversary to get you started.

2 years of blogging and Giveaways

This month…

2nd blog photo

I started blogging as an outlet while on maternity leave after a mummy friend suggested it.

Now I know am not the greatest blogger, I only post occasionally when I remember although I do aim to post more often and my vocabulary isn’t the largest. I use my blog to help me improve my spelling as well because it has always been shockingly bad, I think that is because words don’t seem to look wrong to me ( maybe i’m a little dyslexic) if you show me four words and ask which is spelt correctly I won’t always be able to tell you as they are to me it doens’t look wrong.

I love having an outlet for my voice weather anyone really reads it or not doesn’t matter. I can share what I think here, I can share my thoughts on products and places as well as sharing photo’s. It’s completely my choice what I type out and share.
This blog is also a sort of diary/ journal of C growing up, there’s stories of her 1st hair cut, Our Florida holiday  and family events.

I love my blog, even if nobody else does and that’s all that matters.

So I want to thank those who have followed and read my blog over the last 2 years by running a few little giveaways over the next month to Celebrate our second year up and running.

My blog is mainly about family, our hobbies and things we like.
So I plan on running a few giveaways of things related to the things we blog about.

– I want to give away some baking related items, as that is one of my biggest hobbies. I adore baking and love to share my creations with anyone who wants to read about it. 
 – I want to giveaway some sweets and chocolate as who doesn’t like chocolate!
–  I want to giveaway some children’s books as C loves to read and I think all children deserve books!

So here is out 1st prize

Baby and toddler show Manchester 6th-8th March 2015 ticket competition

I have attended the Baby and toddler show in Manchester a couple of times in the past and had some good days out.

It is a great place for any new parents and grandparents or parents and grandparents to be to find our all about new and exciting products as well as a way to get some good deals.

They have a mixture of stalls selling baby clothes, cloth nappies and other essential baby accessories, there are demo’s of new products like pram’s and car seats, and they also have talks from experts about topics related to growth and development.
I found it great for information on local companies and programs that are available in the north-west.

A full list of exhibitors is available here 

I will be attending again this year and hopefully writing a review of all that I see, and want to give you the opportunity to go as well. Continue reading
