A Girly Night of Bingo!

A few Saturday’s ago I got to have a girly night in with some friends as Roo was at a sleepover and Daddy E tinkering on his car.  It was lovely and after an average take away and a couple of bottles of wine we decided to have a go of playing online bingo as one of the girls had said she’d been playing at home with friends of an evening and had really enjoyed it.

We all promised to spend no more than £10 each and the friend who had played before recommended a site called Golden Bingo, which is basically like a website full of online reviews for bingo websites so you know who has the best deals on at the moment and where you can get freebies for your first go.  We had a £40 kitty and decided on one of the big sites that was offering us a 200% bonus if we signed up online so we ended up with £80 in the pot.

Deli 24 Snacks Review

Recently at ourTree Fu Tom toys party we were very kindly sent a selection of Deli 24 Snacks for the kids to demolish during the event.  They were made very welcome in the house and several packets also made it to Daddy E’s office to feed his every hungry work colleagues.

For any parent kids asking for snacks is part of the daily request list but often it can be hard to find fun and healthy snacks that they will eat.  Thankfully the clever team at Deli 24 have solved the problem and taken something off the ‘to do’ list for mum’s everywhere with their range of healthy, nutritional snacks that are perfect for lunchboxes.

I must admit we’re big foodies in this house and I love cooking – it relaxes me and trying new recipes and foods from different cultures is exciting.  I would hope that Roo grows up to have my love of food too and whist she is like most four year olds a resonable eater she can be fussy and prone to refusing things she’s not sure of when out and about.  Take a read of the guest post today which focuses on the familiar phrase of your eyes being bigger than your belly!

When you’re eating out, you might look down at your plate to discover that, despite feeling full, there’s still a little bit of food left. Sometimes, you’re given too much to eat at a restaurant; while there are occasions where the meal you’re served is a little disappointing.
