Birthday boys!

My three boys are not just animals to me, they are part of the family. They are so important to me as they bring me so much joy, companionship and loyalty, I really do not know what I will do when they pass on. Anyway, the point that I am trying to make is that as I regard them as members of the family it seemed only natural to me that on Leo's first birthday we would celebrate with a birthday cake and lots of pressies! However, having since discussed this with many friends and family it would appear that it is not so normal for most.

Do you know the difference between use by and best before dates?

According to the UK Food Standards Agency the 'use by' date is all about the safety of eating the food, so if the packaging has a 'use by' date, then you should never eat it once that date has passed as it is not safe to do so, even if the food looks or smells ok, it could have bacteria in it which could cause serious illness. However, the 'best before date' is all about the quality of the food and is perfectly safe to still consume years after the date has passed.

3 things people don't tell you about making slime!

My daughter has joined the craze of wanting to make slime, so like many mums, I started looking for recipes and 'how to' posts on making slime, so that we could make some of our own. From this, I have discovered three things that no one tells you when you're looking through tutorials on Pinterest or blog posts about making slime, which I think that people need to know!

A family day out at Chessington theme park

Chessington theme park and zoo is a great family day out as there is so much to see and do, enough for more than a day, I wish that we had gone for two days.

Natural history museum

On a recent trip to London, we decided to visit the Natural History Museum as we had heard so many good things about it. However, I must say that although we did have a nice time we were not as impressed as we had thought that we would be.
