Friday Favourites: The One About The Lunch Boxes
Back into a New Year of favourites, and this week my husband went back to work after two weeks of being on holiday. I’m not going to lie, it was an extreme luxury to have him home during this time. He spent a lot of time with the kids and I didn’t have to do much at all. In fact, I think I had a nap every single day. It was brilliant! So anyway … this week was back to reality. There were definitely ups and downs, however surprisingly there were more ups!
Don’t forget this is a LINK UP! What that means is you can share your favourite blog from the week (if you run one), or perhaps something you have read. Just scroll to the bottom.
What has been your favourite (or least favourite) thing about this week? Check out my five things:
FAVOURITE: Ambury Farm
We live close to Ambury Farm and LOVE going there. It’s a great space for the kids to run around and have fun, whilst checking out the animals at the same time.
FAVOURITE: Jay & Sarah’s Cookbook
I have met Jay & Sarah several times before, and they’re honestly GOOD PEOPLE. You know the type – where you instantly connect. Well I don’t want to sound creepy, but I totally love everything Jay & Sarah do. They recently sent me their brand new Cookbook and it’s SO good! If you follow me on Snapchat, you will have seen me talking about it – I’ve even made something (which isn’t like me at all haha) …
Believe me when I say I have NEVER bookmarked a recipe book before … @jayandsarahnz ‘s cookbook is amazing and I highly recommend buying a copy if you get the chance. ⠀ You can order it from their website, or buy in-store at most bookstores in New Zealand ❤️ ⠀ Well done guys 👏 such an amazing achievement and I can’t wait to start cooking / baking 😍
We LOVE Lego in this house. During the school holidays it has literally been a life saver. My boy loves the Duplo, and my girl has discovered she can put together the older, smaller, lego. She LOVES following the instructions and making something. It brings her great joy!
FAVOURITE: More Lunch Box Reviews!
I just did a whole heap more lunch box reviews, bringing the total lunch boxes I’ve reviewed to 21. Holy SMOKES! These Lunch Box Reviews have been extremely popular. If you’re after a lunch box then I highly recommend you taking a look at the review page.
FAVOURITE: The Parenting View
This week I started The Parenting View Support Group on Facebook. This is a group for ALL parents, grandparents, step parents, etc – it’s a support group where people can come to discuss all things parenting. If you haven’t joined the group, then would love to have you over!
