What we got Henry for his 3rd birthday!

When we buy our children presents we like to get just a few things that they know they'll really appreciate rather than a shed load of tat that's just going to get trashed within the first five minutes.  Henry was coming up to his third birthday and I wanted to make sure he had a few things he'd love.

A great trilogy of books for tweens!

It can be tricky finding a series of books that tweens will enjoy reading but the trilogy by Soman Chainani has proved a hit with three of my daughters aged nine, ten and twelve.  The trilogy is called The School of Good and Evil and my girls have enjoyed each of the books so much that they've actually been wanting to read late into the night!

Ways to keep kids motivated in the summer holidays!

It seems like my children spend their time at school wishing they were on their holidays and then no sooner than the holidays begin they start to get bored so over the years I've learnt a few tricks to keep them motivated.

7 Month Update!

My sweet baby girl is now 7 months old, she can't crawl and doesn't have any teeth and I'm more than happy with that.  I know how quickly children grow up and I just want her to take her time.  I want to continue enjoying the baby stage for a little bit longer!

Grocery Haul and Meal Plan for Family of 9

We go through a lot of oats because we love our porridge so I bulk buy our organic oats in 25 kg bags, we also go through a lot of organic flour which we use to make our bread so I also ordered a 25 kg bag of that too this week.  I store the sacks in large plastic tubs with lids (the sort you use to make beer) this keeps the food nice and fresh and keeps any creepy crawlies out!

Now Scarlett's a bit older I'm back to making everything from scratch.  It's so nice to once again have decent bread, mayonnaise, coleslaw, hummus etc.  The shop bought stuff just isn't the same!

You can see in the above video all that we got with our Ocado delivery this week.  In total, including the oats and flour, we spent about £200 on groceries.  I've also included our week's meal plan in the video.

Do you bulk buy any of your groceries?  What measures do you take to save money on your grocery bill?
