Win a £150 giftcard to spend at Smyth’s Toys!

Did I mention we’re in the midst of a Scooby Doo obsession? I remember The Big One being the same at this age, and now The School Boy is Scooby mad too. It’s no bad thing to be honest; I used to love it as a kid too. The newer versions are really similar to the originals too, which pleases my purist side. So our evenings have been spent watching old DVDs, watching new DVDs, playing with Scooby Lego sets and even making up our own stories. Great fun! We’ve also been watching these amazing Scooby-Doo stop motion videos, which were created using the LEGO Scooby-Doo sets. Like I said, obsessed.

Thankfully,  new videos are uploaded weekly – so if you want to check them out, visit ScoobyDoo.com and subscribe to the WB Kids YouTube channel.

And if you want some of the Scooby Doo Lego action for yourself, why not enter to win a £150 gift card to spend at Smyth’s Toys? Enter here- good luck!

Journey of Me: we all want to #LiveWell with Co-operative Food

When I started with Live Young Bootcamp back in July I’m not sure I envisaged the changes that were ahead of me. And it’s not just weight loss, as I try to always mention when I write about this journey. Yes, I am over the moon with the physical results and every week I am thrilled to see the inches continue to- slowly- disappear. 14.5 inches in total, if you were wondering. And while I would be lying if I said that didn’t feel amazing, I’d also be doing the whole thing a disservice if I didn’t mention how the other stuff far outweighs the shrinking of my body fat. Something is now happening to the whole family. We all want to #livewell with Co-operative Food.

we all want to live well_ ghostwritermummy.co.ukI’m teaming up with Co-operative Food and following along with Jo’s 21 day food challenge in a bid to end fussy eating in my house. Eek. Thats quite a challenge.

Elsie has her own dietitian, thanks to her cow’s milk protein allergy (cpma), and it’s the same lovely dietitian who we saw when The School Boy was under consultant care too. She really is amazing, and really knows her stuff too. Back in March I told her about our family mealtimes and she gave me loads of really good strategies  to try. At this point I was preparing and cooking up to five different meals every dinner time. The two little ones would have one thing, The Big One another thing, and Ghostwrirterdadddy and I separate meals too. And then i’d make another meal for The School Boy when he refused to eat the first meal he asked for. It was a nightmare! And we were weeks away from weaning Elsie too, so it was only going to get worse! So we adopted a plan. (more…)

We’re a little bit super hero mad in our house at the moment. The kids have always loved dressing up (at the weekend we counted no less than five Spiderman costumes! Who knew?) and super heroes are their favourite by far. So imagine the excitement when we realised we could create our own! You can too. Create your ultimate super hero with a fun name, look, powers and more!

Are all students really penniless?

I was your typical penniless student. On the day after I graduated with a 2:1 in English Literature and Creative Writing, my flatmate and I had to copper up to buy the jobs papers. We literally lived from grant cheque to grant cheque, and yes I know how lucky we were to even get a grant! My younger sisters didn’t have this luxury and I know that if my own kids get to higher education, they won’t either. But even having a government aided grant didn’t stop up from being penniless. So if you’d have asked me 15 years ago, are all students really penniless I would have said absolutely YES. The thing is, I was probably really stupid with my money. I say probably. I was. But I get the impression that students are a little different these days…

There wasn’t really the internet when i was a student, not like it is now anyway. When i finished my A-Levels, the school I studied at had ONE computer that was hooked up online, and there was a two week waiting list to get on it. Seriously. These days though, we have the internet quite literally at our finger tips. Our smart phones, our tablets. Wifi on the bus. 4G signals almost in every corner of the country. And with all this access, there is also online banking and apps that are designed to help us manage our money better. Being savvy is a lot easier these days I think. (more…)
