If you’re looking for an egg-cellent activity for the Easter Holidays, then one egg-citing option is going to one of the many Cadbury Egg Hunts on offer at National Trust for Scotland properties across the country. There are some superb events on over the Easter holidays in Edinburgh- everyone should be checking out the International Science Festival – an Egg Hunt seems to be a crucial aspect of Easter for me. I’ve teamed up with the National Trust for Scotland and Cadbury to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a year’s family membership worth £90 and a fantastic gift hamper… View Post

Both my kids have attended nursery since they were around 12 months old. I chose to return to work at this point and although we looked at the option of having a nanny or childminder – nursery was the best option for us.

Oh My Blog is a monthly interview series, where fellow bloggers come together to answer a series of questions on a specific theme.

Over the coming months, I’m going to be doing just that. In a new series aptly named – #MamaUniform – I’m going to be seeking revelations from other Mum’s. Finding out what their ‘go-to’ items are and gathering their top tips for putting together practical wardrobes.

A common question I see on Real Nappy Groups is about using Real Nappies at Nursery. Or more specifically whether nurseries are willing to use reusable nappies, and the best brand to avoid problems. On the whole, our experience of having Thomas at nursery in real nappies has been very positive. The nursery were willing to use them from the outset and have done their best to get things right.
