Giveaway: Hedrin Protect & Go

Like a lot of children, Luke recently got his acceptance letter for the school he’ll be attending in September. Loads of parents, all across the country, will have received their child’s placements and are hopefully happy with the finial decision.

With new schools come new experiences and challenges to over come. Yes, it’s exciting, but it’s also a bit scary and overwhelming – there are so many changes your children have to adapt to and school is very different to preschool; secondary school is very different to primary school.

There is so much that we all need to take into consideration, but one thing that many parents worry about (once we’ve got over the idea of our little babies growing up) is that with a lot of new students, come a lot of new bugs, illnesses and almost inevitably: head lice.

I’m low key dreading the moment we have our first head lice epidemic in our household. Just the mere mention of “head lice” makes me feel irrationally itchy and a little bit grossed out. Which, retrospectively, is stupid. At some point in our lives, we will all catch head lice. Luckily for us parents, head lice formula has come on leaps and bounds since we were youngsters!

Money: Weekly Vegetarian Meal Plan #2

This weekend is my birthday and as a special (budget friendly) treat, Mikey is taking me camping! So that means that our Friday, Saturday and Sunday meals will all be glorious budget BBQ foods.

As mentioned in last weeks vegetarian meal plan, Mikey eats meat but doesn’t often get the opportunity to have a “full on” meaty meal because of my being a vegetarian; as you can imagine, he’s very much looking forward to having some classic BBQ food over the weekend.

As we’re away from Friday midday, we’ve only really done a shop and plan for four days worth of vegetarian meals – the rest will be us just winging it.

My Top 5 Favourite Movie Easter Eggs

I would consider myself a bit of a film buff. I’ve watched all the classics, I’m a bit judge-y and I always spot the continuity errors. I studied Film Studies at college and really wanted to go on and further study the subject at university too. Therefore, all those little errors, added extras, and funky film techniques are something I always pick up on.

I’ve always found it so interesting that producers and creators of media – whether it TV shows, films or even games – add their own special touch by leaving behind tiny little Easter Eggs. Those hidden messages, funny jokes and secret features go by almost undetected; it’s always fascinating when you find a new one that you’ve never noticed before.

Living Arrows 16/52 – Wheels Day

This week’s Living Arrows post is full of firsts for Luke. We went to Wheels Day – a car event that happened to be hosted in our town of Aldershot this year.

We headed out to the Rushmoor Arena around 10am and met up with some friends, it was a real family event with lots of families around and we took Luke who had lots of his friends to play with while we were there.

Money: Vegetarian Weekly Meal Plan #1

If you read my recent post about learning to meal plan and budget our food shops, you’ll know that this is something we initially struggled with when we moved house.

I’m now very pleased to say that have sort of got the hang of it.

Meal planning didn’t come naturally to us at first and I mentioned in my previous post that we were finding it difficult to remember that “left overs” can, in fact, become a whole new meal.

I’m happy to say that without fail, every Saturday, we both sit down and plan our meals for the week and write a shopping list and even happier to tell you that “left over meals” now make up at least one or two of our weekly dinners.

#Living Arrows 15/52 – Field Day

With Mikey working long hours 6 days a week and Luke with his dad on most weekends, we don’t often get the chance to spend time together as a family.

This is my favourite picture from our little weekend together. It’s definitely being printed off and placed in our (still very empty) multi photo frame! Cherish the little moments in life…!

Review: Testing Out Bidvine

In today’s society, we all have busy, hectic lifestyles that demand a lot of our time. Whether we’re dividing our time between working 9-5 and looking after the kids, or working away from home, or even running online businesses and working from home – our spare time is limited. Wouldn’t it be great to not have to worry about all those little tasks that are niggling away at your mental “to do” list?

Testing Out Bidvine, the local services directory at http://lukeosaurusandme.co.uk

Bidvine is a great UK based local service search that is free and easy to use. Spare time shouldn’t be spent trolling the internet trying to find the best deals on plumbers, domestic cleaners or even wedding DJs. It should be spent doing the things you love with the people you love, and Bidvine is a fast service that allows you to do just that.

Money: Learning To Meal Plan & Budget Food Shops

I first tried my hand at meal planning about a year ago, the whole charade lasted about two or three weeks – each day gradually slipping away from whatever we had originally planned, until the whole concept just completely fell through.

Now that I find myself in a beautiful new home, I am determined to stay on top of our money (as our overall living expense is significantly higher than my previous property) and try to avoid money related anxiety by attempting to plan our meals and budget our weekly food shop.

We’ve been doing this for a few weeks now and I must admit that it wasn’t the magical Pinterest start I was hoping for. It seems, for us anyway, that meal planning is something we need to work at…

#Living Arrows 14/52 – Caesar’s Camp

I’m going to jump right into Donna’s Living Arrows linky…just a few weeks later than planned! What with moving house and waiting for our internet to get reconnected (and having to deal with Virgin Media’s early exit fees), I wouldn’t have been able to keep up with one photo/one story every week. Now that things are a bit more settled, I think I’m ready for the weekly commitment!

Luke’s New Bedroom ft. Arty Apple Bunting!

In case I hadn’t mentioned this enough when I complained about my lack of internet, or the sheer joy of finally getting to this stage, I have moved house recently. Yes! I know! A complete shock to you all, I’m sure. But seriously, after the stress of moving and living without internet (I really feel the need to hammer that point across to you), one of the best bits about our new home is Luke’s new bedroom.

For the first time ever, he actually has a room that is all his. Beforehand, our living arrangements meant that his bedroom was also our dumping ground and storage space. It was a big room, but only half of it was ever really accessible. There were no cool pictures or photos on the walls, no “special little touches” to make it his.

But now that’s all changed. Luke has the freedom to personalise his surroundings to his own taste, and so do I.

One of my favourite new touches to his bedroom is Luke’s Arty Apple bunting.
