Our Pick of the Top 5 January Sales Destinations!

Who doesn’t love a bargain? It might be the time of year that we’re all feeling the squeeze, but it’s also the time of year some of us make our big spends. We might be all worn out on our Christmas spending, but those huge ‘SALE – 70% off!’ flashy red banners lure even the hardest of hearts to have a quick squizz for a bargain. Plus, of course, so many of us have actually been waiting for them...

Oh we’re in LOVE with this pretty pretty bike… *goes shopping just to fill the basket*

Oh we’re in LOVE with this pretty pretty bike… *goes shopping just to fill the basket*

I was noodling about the webs, as you do when you’re supposed to be catching up on your monthly accounts, when I accidentally tripped over the doorway and found myself at Bikester. I know, me either. But stay with me here, it’ll be worth it. Bike shops are not, on a day to day basis, my usual noodle-spot. It’s not that I don’t love a cycle – oh no, I’ll whizz along the back lanes with the family on...

Wild Foraging with Robinsons Fruit Shoots

I think I first wrote about our love of foraging six years ago, when there was an apple glut and we were about to review a juicer (handy). So when Robinson’s got in touch and asked if we’d like to forage for a new flavour Fruit Shoot, it was an easy yes for us (apart from anything else, as home educators, we’re always looking for new things to learn, and this was a fab way to get 10yr old Bear out into the woods and...

Review of the Graco Evo XT – one rather fabulous stroller #GenerationGraco

Last in our #GenerationGraco series is a review of the Graco Evo XT – a fabulously sturdy pushchair that appears to be perfectly suited to our rural lifestyle. Once unpacked, clipping the axle, wheels and basket into place was a doddle, and we were literally ready to roll within minutes. Even with all the fab pushchair testing we’ve done recently, this one created an immediate impressed face. It looks great, of course, but...

Graco Modes 3 Lite Travel System Review #GenerationGraco

I’ve said it a lot recently – Graco is a name has been trusted by many parents for decades, and by me for almost twenty years now. But it’s been a while since I had a baby small enough to push around on wheels, so when Graco sent over the  Modes 3 Lite Click Connect Travel System I enlisted the help of the lovely Emma with baby Danny to put it through its paces for me. It’s a neat looking system, and like so...

Graco Milestone Review – the only car seat you need to buy? #GenerationGraco

Being asked to do a Graco Milestone review really took me back a few years. Waaay back when I began this parenting malarky almost 18 years ago (EIGHTEEN YEARS! *cries*) car seats were honestly a baffling thing.  Of course, the Big News on the Parenting Street back then was the totes awesome ‘travel system’ idea – utterly groundbreaking, the car seat that could sit in the pram chassis so you didn’t have to...
