Enginuity – Telford

We visited Enginuity, which is a science museum in Ironbridge, (Telford, Shropshire) during this half term and is one of ten museums in the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage site. We are incredibly lucky to have these museums on our doorstep and want to make use of what our great town has to offer.

I have always heard that redheads have fiery tempers but I'd never fully believed that hair colour could define temper yet I seem to have the fiestiest toddler ever! Her temper is definitely worse more recently. She has learnt to scream, tighten her fists and… Continue reading Fiesty Redhead

Positive Wellbeing – Review (Gifted)

I'm not good at self-care, I find it difficult to MAKE time for myself since Ellie was born. The Positive Wellbeing 'Zine for Mums does exactly what Emma envisaged, it promotes positivity in a world that can be extremely hard for new mums, actually on all mums! #winningasamummy #review #zineformums #isabellaandus #motheringarainbow #mblogger #pblogger #gifted

Matching Games

I got this Peppa Pig matching game for 50p in Tesco a few months ago, the box said 3+ but I knew I would find a use for them, even if it was just recognising the characters. Ellie confidently matches the character and likes pretending to get them wrong 😂. I don't use all the… Continue reading Matching Games

Health Review

This morning we took Ellie for her 2 year health review at the local baby clinic, ever since she's been born I have had awful feelings about health visitors. When Ellie was first born we saw 4 different health visitors in the first week, none of them knew our background and I felt myself explaining… Continue reading Health Review
