10 Fun Things To Do With The Kids In London



Once again as it does, the weekend is coming and I am excited for it, who cares about the weather, its Autumn, it is always going to be up and down! What does matter is 10 fun things to do with the kids in London this weekend wither you live her or visiting I can certainly help you sort out your weekend.

1. Chessington
Throughout the summer we could not get enough of Chessington, every year we go and every year, we always find new exciting rides to go on. What's better each time we go Leanora gets a little taller, meaning we can go on so many more rides. it is a great day out spent with the family and not only is just for rides, but they even have a zoo there too. 

2. Head to London Zoo
It's trying to spot the little cubs that does it for me, no I don't mean the kids, but seeing if the Lions have had a new cubs. This is the perfect place to explore see animals and birds alike that you've never spotted before, catch show and tell ad learn about animals you know and don't, and if you are lucky enough may just make it for feeding time and help feed the beautiful giraffes. What is best of all, kids under 3 go free.

3. Head To The Bookstore
As you know we are avid readers, so why not head to your local book store and find some new hidden gems that you and the kids can bundle up on the sofa with and enjoy a new magical fantasy for the family, not up for heading home then settle in at your closest and cosiest coffee shop. 

4. Brighton Beach 
Who doesn't love a good day at the beach, strolling along the promonade and eating your weight in fish and chips. Brioghton takes just over an hour and half to get there from London Liverpool Street, Or 1 hour from Clapham Junction, as soon as you get off the train, you see the glorious seaside straight in front of you. We also go to Brighton no matter the time of the year, there are loads of great boutiques, cafes and shops galore to go and explore.

5. Sail on a Go Boat
Why not sail your way around London Town and hire one of the uber cool boats for you and family and friends and taking in all it's wonder.

6. Play Golf
We are avid gamers in my house and we love a good challenge, granted 98% of the time I lose but Puttshack over in Westfield Shepherds Bush is always fun to go to. They have loads of holes and some are great because you can get to win prizes, such as your next game free, food, drinks you name it. We normally head over there after our mother and daughter Friday night dinner, It can get quite busy so I certainly suggest booking in advance, beucause if you get there you may have to wait a while or they maybe fully booked. Its a great game for the whole family to cheer one another on, just dont lose like me, as I am normally left carrying the winner (Leanora) on my back all the way home and I'm left buying the winner ice-cream.

7. Visit A Musuem
London is literally bursting with museums, our favourite has to be The Natural History Museum, but nonetheless which ever we go to, we always get to learn about so many different things, plus an added bonus most of them are FREE to attend. 

8 Eat Some Fun Crumble
OK, lets clear this up, apple crumble, any crumble is not just to eat at school with custard or your for your Sunday pud, you can have it, whenever, wherever.....! Well not wherever, we recetly headed down to Shoreditch to check out Spitafields Market in search for some tasty grub and stumbled across, Humble Crumble! See my rhyming skils there lol!

9. Go To The Theatre
Check out some of London's best Theatres and the shows on offer. I've just booked us tickets to go and see Lion King, I was meant to go a few years back, but I was heavily pregnant at the time and bought ticket for my mothers birthday, but too heavily pregnant to go I will be making up for it now. 

10. Visit Borough Market
Borough market can transform you in to a magical world of food galore from dishes all over the world. It is a great place to hang out with the kids and try some Delicious cuisines 

I hope my 10 fun things to do with the kids keep you entertained, any to add let us know in the comments below! You may also want to check out my guide to every mums best weekend.

25 Minute Chicken Panang

This 25 minute Chicken Panang is currently our favourite dish of the week. Its sweet and spicy, but not too much that the kiddos can't enjoy it and what is better it takes no time at all to whip up, dinner served in no time!

With Leanora settling back into school and me back at work, it can leave little time to cook, especially when you've got homework to do, get a load of washing on, tidy the house and sort the cat out, life can be manic, so I am all about a stress free evening when it comes to some tasty, delicious and healthy grub.

With the seasons changing, this 25 minute chicken Panang is super tasty, comforting and a total crowd pleaser! Whilst your saving on time, not on flavour. 

Most Sundays we have a roast chicken, A great for left overs or B when on the school run I pass Sainsburys and I am able to pick up a rotisserie chicken, all whilst still making the 3:20pm pickup -boom! Now tell me that is not great multi tasking right there! With that said, there goes saving time on cooking the chicken as its cooked already, all you are really doing is serving it up with some lovely steamed.

The first time I actually ever had a chicken Panang, it was actually a prawn version, all in a pub in Brighton and I've loved it ever since, but never dared make it before. 

Fast forward a few years later, the supermarkets are brilliant as they offer pastes to help you make these creations, saving your time in the kitchen as I imaging making these beautiful fragrant pastes will take a lot of time and love to make, during the week I just don't have that, so with different pastes offered from all over the world in your closest supermarket is great for busy people like me and you. 

This past cost me less than £1.50 from the local supermarket another school run purchase and I had everything else I needed to bring this perfect dish in to magical tasty harmony at home. 

I have loads of staples that I always keep stocked at home, coconut milk, fresh chillies and fresh parsley and an obvious rice, be it brown or white, just depends on what I fancy on the day. These few key ingredients are all you need to make this 25 minute week night dish.

Now enough of the chit chat, lets get down to your new go-to week night meal. 


Ingredients

  • Ready cooked chicken enough to serve 4 (always need extra for tomorrow's lunch)
  • 190 grams pf Panang curry paste
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 1 - 2 red chilies sliced for garnish
  • a bunch of fresh chopped parsley for garnish
  • Steamed rice for serving


Instructions

  • Put your rice on and cook as per the packet instructions
  • Heat a pot with a little oil on medium heat and cook out your paste for 3-5 minutes until fragrant
  • Add your coconut milk and cook out for a further 3-5 minutes
  • Add your ready cooked shredded chicken and stir to combine the sauce for a further 10 minutes
  • Serve the chicken over your freshly steamed rice and add your chopped chilies and parsley as you desire

The Family Upstairs - Book Review



Looking for a new book to ready this week?! I am sharing my new favourite book with you.

What can I say, I recently went to our local bookstore to purchase some new books for Leanora and I and I stumbled upon The Family Upstairs. As you may know I am a thriller / crime junkie and after reading the synopsis about this I thought it would be a good read! Boy was I wrong it is a freakingly good AMAZING read, I have not devoured a book like this in so long, it was I have been yearning for to give me the book of life again.


The Family Upstairs I simply tore this apart over a weekend, granted it would of been a day if I did not have to get a little shut eye, but I simply could not put this down over the weekend.

The author Lisa Jewell, I hands down thank you for writing this book and bringing it to life.

The Family Upstairs, where do I start, from beginning to end it has you gripped, set in the rich borough of Chelsea, just off Cheyene Walk, a high society family's world spins out of control, gone are the beautiful dresses, the parties ,the members club and the money to boot and incomes music, a sordid unnatural cult way of living! The kids ugh!! Where do I start... Some go missing, have some died, who is this woman with two kids in tow and a dog, living in the Cote d'Azur, what does she have to bring to this story, who is her ex, is she running from something or to someone and the baby, who is this baby?

The main character Libby, how has she come to inherit this £7 million pound mansion, how come its left to her, why did her siblings not come and claim it on their 25th Birthday????

I mean the intrigue alone, I know I am simply going to have to read this book again to quench my thirst, some many little nuggets to uncover, I just needed to know and I have to say from beginning to end it really did not disappoint.

If you want to know more about the parents, the mystery kids, the baby, a herb garden curated for life and death, then this book is for you and I promise you will not be disappointed.

Well guys what can I say, I love the book so much I just recently purchased Lisa's Jewell, The Invisible Girl and I've only started reading a few pages and I am hooked, I am sure I will smash my through this book and once I do I'll be sure to let you know how it goes.

Have you read any Lisa Jewells books, I can see she has written numerous and a new one has just come out these past few days I believe to be called The Nigh She Disappeared! If so let me know which or if you have any great books you have recently read I would love to hear about it in the comments below.

Back To School Essentials

 


Yay! We made it, today is the official first day back to school for the kiddos and I have to say this summer literally flew by, but I am not complaining, especially as now normality has started to settle in, plus with the weather being lush this week, I guess we are on the up. 

This time of year for many parents can be a little manic, I’ve still loads of cute back to school essentials to get for Leonora from funky stationary from Rymans to thermals from Marks & Spencers for when the winter months arrive ,so to help all you lovely rents out I found loads of adorable bits to help see your kids through. 

Hands down any money, by the end of the week all Leanora’s lovely white polo shirts will be grey, with a splash of tomato sauce and various pen stains in them for extra good measure, or her brand new trackies will have holes in it, bet ya any money hands down this will happen, I mean kids right! So I’ve got a few good back-ups from various sites, who do a quick delivery if needed and linked them all below for you to peruse through.

Footwear is an obvious essential, to fresh shiny black school shoes, cute Mary Janes, trainers for PE, wellies, warm boots the list goes on, and below are a few must haves.


With the kids eager to get back out and get back in to school, have fun in the playground and see their friends again a coat is an essential item to get them to and from school, they don't have to be boring they can be uber cool and I've found some perfect ones for them to rule school in. 

Goes with out saying really, the major must have is the back pack and I have to say I've seem brilliant  ones out there, especially this morning on the school drop and I've got my bigger hitters linked below. 

I hope this list all helps with your little ones back to school essential needs as I thought it be fun to share, after all sharing is caring. 

Happy back to school kiddos and well done rents to getting them in. 

Let me know what you think of the list and how has the first day gone for you guys?

Back To Work Essentials


Hey friends! Lindsey here, what can I say, but I have returned back to work, after my some time off for the summer holiday.

Summer is finally winding down and the new Autumnal season is fast approaching.Getting ready to hang up all my summer dresses and linen skirts, and time for the autumnal tones, suits and blazers and a little intricate light layering to come back out.

As you all know new seasons and years bring new inspiration, to colours and cuts and I have to confess this transtiont time has to be my favourite, whilst still not cold, you can mix and match fabrics, whilst still getting you legs out before you have to fully layer up, plus you can still get away with for the moment a little injection of colour from your summer palette. 

For me right now, it is still not coat weather, but a good blazer and an obvious must have trench coat is key and I have my eye on a few, not only for me to wear to the office, but on the weekend also, I always think about cost per wear, I am a little frugal, especially as I am a parent and I've kid who kills me for Robux and Vbux!!!! Don't ask... But with these items, are the perfect layering essential, especially as half my summer pieces I did not get to wear, like most of us I am sure.

Suits a must this year and this year I am going a little further with a cute three piece suit! I have never been one to shop in a charity shop until recently! A new girl who has just joined my team, every lunch time I kid you not comes in with bags full of fab new pieces, she literally spends her whole lunch hour in the few charity shops that line our office street, sandwich and all and comes back with a range of goodies. Giving me a thrill and feeling slightly left out I headed to the charity shop directly across from my office and bagged myself a gorgeous navy wool waistcoat, which I plan on wearing with a grey suit that I too have been eyeing up.  A suit which has not been required for some time this past 18 months, will now be very much apart of my polished back to work look which I will be embracing fully.

Knitwear, what can I say I love it, it's cosy, it can be light and heavy it can come in various colours and prints and I am here for it. I have a few pieces that I've eyed up, especially a few lighter co-ord pieces to ease me in to Autumnal months, from Mango, Na-kd and & Other Stories, whilst some may be back in the office, this are a few that can work just as well if you are working at home. 

I must confess I am a big shoe lover, but as soon as I get to my desk, off they pop! If they are certainly off at my desk, you know I mean business. Hence why I have vast selection, my school drop off kicks, to my business shoes to the cheeky fluffy 3 pairs of slippers that I have in my bottom desk drawer and my Friday night shoes. The one thing the IT guys hate the most, is if I have to relocate, as I always have at least 2 boxes full of shoes, boots, trainers and slippers you gotta have options, you never know what occasions can spring up on you!

Just like my shoes, I need some serious good arm candy in various shapes and sizes! My go to are Radley, Arket, Cos, Mango, NA-KD and something a little more out there with a pop of colour, I head off to ASOS. Depending on the day, I will need a really good and large sturdy bag if I am out and about on sites and at any given time, I can hold upto 20 sets of keys at a time!, going to court or working at a different office, I need something a little large to hold my files in. Generally, you'll find me nestled away in a cafe and you know what that means, laptop time to 5'oclock Friday time for some drinks with the office crew, so yes a good few essentials for the office for different structured days a good bag has to come in to play.

And there you have it folks, my back to work essentials! I am planning on what actually I carry on in my bag at work, but that I'll save for an upcoming post.

How to Use Freebies to Save Cash



The vast majority of companies actually give out lots of different discounts and freebies to people in the hopes that they become paying customers. 


1. Get More Customers

As mentioned above, many companies give out freebies UK  in order to get customers. Most companies typically give out samples of their products to increase the size of their customer pool. Basically, when a potential customer utilizes a sample, there is a good chance that they will like the product which will make them want to actually buy that product at some point. 


2. Create Awareness of The Company's Brand

Next, by giving out samples and various freebies, a business can easily improve the awareness of its brand. After all, in order to get customers, people actually need to know that your company and brand actually exists. This is especially true if your niche and marketplace are quite competitive. 


3. Remove Uncertainty about Your Brand

Most people want to know that they will like, enjoy or find a particular product or service useful before they actually spend their money to purchase it. As a result, companies should provide incentives to encourage new customers to buy their services or products. When a company provides a free sample, this will give potential customers the confidence to buy from that company at some point in the future. 


Why Freebies Are Important

Most people inherently want to save money. The typical person in the United Kingdom saves as much as £1,200 per year by utilizing coupons, discounts and freebies. This is actually a fantastic way for most people to save cash. 


There are also numerous benefits for companies to provide freebies as listed above. 

So, if you're a potential customer, there is no reason why you shouldn't take full advantage of any freebies or discounts available to you. If you want more information, be sure to check out this infographic on how you can take full advantage of freebies and discounts.

Tips for Freebie Fans to Make Life Easier!

 


Offers That Appear Way Too Good Are Likely Not the Real Deal

You need to check that the freebie really is genuine (if you are being offered a £1000 voucher you know it's not a real thing) and you also need to check the terms and conditions very carefully to make sure that you fully understand what you are agreeing to. Check out this infographic for more information.

 

Keep Your Expectations in Check

The majority of freebies come as small samples, not a full-size product. The reason that lies behind the freebie is that of you trying out the product without having to fork out money for it, if you like it, you go ahead and purchase a full-size product yourself. Keeping your expectations in check also means that you won't expect to get all the freebies you apply for.

 

If You Aren't Willing To Ask People May Not Be Willing To Give

Try sending out letters and emails to various companies asking if they have any free samples that they are happy to send out to you. You can also let companies know how much you like their products, this can sometimes result in boxes full of freebie goodness landing on your doorstep. If you have been dissatisfied with a product, make sure you tell the company about this too. You will find that most companies are quick to provide a replacement freebie and a few extras if their customers have been dissatisfied with their initial product.

 

Guilt Is Not Your Friend

Ordering a few free samples from your favourite company is not going to put them into bankruptcy. In fact, they love it for the benefits it brings them. Each time they send out a sample package they are, in effect, being given the chance to draw in a new customer. After all, most of us who receive something for nothing and think it's pretty great are going to head out to purchase one with our hard-earned cash.

 

Get Yourself Set Up With a Second Email Address

Possibly the most important tip. Don't let your email account get bogged down with spam mail, instead set up a second account and do the same for your social media account and phone number - you need all of these to claim your freebies. This tip is worth its weight in gold!

All The Heatwave Dresses You Need Right Now



With the summer sun taking a long time to reach the UK I can finally say it has arrived.

With the heatwave set to continue this week I need no excuse to get my myself some new and much needed cooling dresses on and if you’re anything like me, the heat gives you no excuses to purchase some new dresses.


Last weekend was glorious it was great seeing people finally out and about, I spent Saturday strolling and sightseeing around London with a little picnic in the park and had a lovely beach day with Leanora and my mum!

With my skin now sun kissed and glowing I want to wear dresses that highlight my new found long awaited glow. I plan on wearing a lot of colour this summer to help bring out my new glow along with white dresses which always look great along tanned skin.

I recently did my first ever IG Reel in my new green dress, I was utterly nervous but inspired to create more, until then you can watch it here and see my gorgeous dress which I wore out on my girlie Saturday day and this is where the idea came from to write this post and share all the heatwave dresses you need now!


Don’t worry I’ve got something for everyone and at all price ranges too. I found some great pieces from Nastygal, Amazon to & Other Stories.

Life Lately



It’s currently 5am this glorious Monday morning and I am absolutely buzzing, oh and good morning you lovely lot.

Last week was absolutely glorious, summer has finally come to London and there is no better place to be when the summer sun is out.

Due to the pandemic I finally got to see my darling friend Gabrielle who I haven’t seen for the last 2 years due to the pandemic, for a spot of brunch and a girlie stroll around Knightsbridge, Hyde Park, China Town, Marble Arch then back to Knightsbridge needless to say my feet were killing me, but at least my recent pedi looked great in my new summer sandals. Regardless of feet were killing me it was so lovely to catch up with and her and spend quality time people watching when we sat down for a little rest.




I finally got to done out at one of my bucket list restaurants Harry’s in Knightsbridge. The food was amazing unfortunately I did not get a desert THIS time but I needed a great excuse to go back. For brunch I had Vongole one of my favourite pasta dishes in the world! I will certainly beecreating this dish this week so will be sharing on the blog, so make sure you come back to c rock it out.

I have finally come out of my comfort zone and did my first ever reel! Yep I pulled up my big girl pants and threw caution to the wind and went for it, you can find it here, let me know what you guys think.



Another glorious day so you know what that means, a day out to Brighton Beach. It was so glorious and truly great day! we are currently having a heatwave here in the UK and you know we love to take full advantage of it. Whilst the beach was packed, I’ve got a little cool spot that I know which is a lot quieter and less packed. Normally Sunday’s we take it easy and prep for the week ahead, no yesterday we set off for some girlie fun with Leanora, my mum and I and decided to spend Sunday on the beach, I mean come on who also wouldn’t want their Sunday dinner to be a slap up plate of fish and chips.

It’s taken me a little longer than planned as I’ve been a little busy, but finally finished first half of the book Daisy Miller and The Turn of the Screw. I will start the second half today and plan on finishing it by the end of the week, so that I can head off to the bookshop this coming weekend to purchase some new reads. If you guys have any great suggestions definitely let me know what you will be reading.

With another jam packed week and Leanora breaking up for her summer holidays and the summer sun out, I can’t wait to let you know how life lately goes next week.

Until then, have a fab week and enjoy the sun guys.

Summer Loving, A UK Getaway



Trust me, I can finally say that summer is here to stay and this mumma is looking to take full advantage of it and me and the girls are gonna pack up the car, loaded my suitcase with summer linen dresses and heading out of town for a mini UK getaway this coming weekend. 

The sun is shining, people are smiling and with restrictions easing only a few days away, we can finally get out and meet new people to socialise, be it in my home town of London or further afield and just writing these words instantly uplifts my spirit and I am sure it does yours too. 

Further afield I shall go, I am planning on heading out of town for a few days with the girls. get out of the London fog and breathe in some clean fresh country side air, well anything is country side to me if it's not in London and within the zone 1 - 4 barrier haha!

I decided to open up my dating app, set the location to further afield for some Bedfordshire dating. I have been meaning to get out of London and visit Bedfordshire it has always been on my list of places to see, only a few hours out of London and the weather picking up I knew it was time for me and the girlies to go and explore and decided why not get a little dating action in their also. 

I am firm believer to not just stick to your home grown roots, in life and when it comes to dating, I mean how else are you going to meet new people and the potential one if you do not get out and see what the world has to offer, even if it is a few hours drive down the M25!!

I must confess I am a hopeless romantic when it comes to dating, I mean I have not been able to do much of it let alone anyone else, since this whole pandemic and I like any woman or man all want their Bridget Jones loving moment. 

I think it's quite exciting coming out of town for a little Befordshire Dating to potentially meet a new beau. With a beautiful back drop, sunny weather and I am hoping cute little cottage style pubs in a abundance and a little bubbly in hand, it sounds like the perfect weekend setting to spend with old friends and possibly new too. 

What are your thoughts about getting out of your local area and going out on dates and meeting new people, even if you do end up doubling up on your weekend experience and bringing a few friends along and make a thing of it? Let me know in the comments below. 

Don’t forget you can also tag me over on Instagram or by using the #LondonMumma tag to show me what you get up to or keep up to date on what’s new on the blog via Bloglovin!

Happy weekend lovelies and enjoy this beautiful weather we are having.

Life Lately

 


Hi loves, happy Wednesday. Last week was a whirl wind, we had our ups and downs not all went quite to plan, but by the end of the week my spirits were up again.

It was Birthday bonanza last week, my grandads wife turn the big 50 on Tuesday, I had a friends birthday on Wednesday that we celebrated Friday and another friends brunch birthday on Saturday, so a little manic but a lot of fun. Especially the bottomless brunch party, couldn't tell you the last time I danced on top of tables singing at the top of my lungs. 


I have finally decided to decorate my bathroom, since we have been living in the house, its the only room I have left to decorate, I've decided on a nice feature wall and adding some cute litte bits to go inside. Would you like to see a step by renovation guide let me know, plus if you are looking too for some bathroom inspo my Pinterest feed is full of ideas.


Leanora is getting way too big way too quickly. But ass my baby is growing she wanting to learn new things and last week she had her trial for gymnastics and I am so proud of her, a little gutted due to COVID I couldn't watch my little jumping bean in action, but super glad she has made the team, just now waiting to find out which group she will be in. 


Most weeks we have been reducing our meat in take and I have to say my stuffed pasta with sausage ragu was an absolute hit, so much so we made it again for this week family meal on Monday. 


With the weather heating up and it being very humid here in London, back out are my linens to keep me cool, you can find a few favourites here

Don’t forget you can also tag me over on Instagram or by using the #LondonMumma tag to show me what you get up to or keep up to date on what’s new on the blog via Bloglovin!
