I have two kids who hate vegetables but I refuse to not let them eat veg. I try my best to conceal them in dishes, which often means chopping veg up into teeny tiny pieces. I hate chopping though, so I decided to invest in a Ninja Professional Stackable Chopper and I genuinely don’t know how I lived without it up until now! Continue reading
On Tuesday afternoon we went to our first ever Frankentoy workshop at Re-Create Ireland’s HQ in Dublin and Aidan had a super time. So did I actually, I found it rather therapeutic. Continue reading
The last time I was at a rave was back in 2010 in the woods at Electric Picnic. I was 27-years-old, not married and child free. And to say I was slightly intoxicated would be the understatement of the century! Continue reading

Cambrils Park in Spain’s Costa Dorada; a Mecca for families during the summer months. We learned of the resort through a friend after I mentioned wanting to take our first ever holiday abroad this summer.
