May has flown by, we haven't had many days out as we spent quite a bit last month because of our holiday to Butlins. However Blake has spent quite a bit of time playing outside with friends. I've mainly been reading over watching anything this month but there are a few things I've been watching. 

The Chris and Rosie Ramsey Show 
The always up-for-a-laugh, always startlingly honest, real-life husband and wife Chris and Rosie Ramsey are joined by a celebrity couple to poke fun at life, growing up, relationships, arguments, annoyances, parenting and everything in between. I first heard of them due to their hilarious pod cast Shagged, Married, Annoyed. 

The Lovely Bones 
Having read the book awhile ago I had been meaning to watch the film which I finally got round to doing. Susie, a 14-year-old girl, gets murdered, but she refuses to move on since she has unfinished business. Her spirit continues to watch over her family trying to reveal her murderer's name to them.


A great family friendly film where a physician, who can speak with animals, is summoned by the queen to find a cure for her life-threatening disease. Soon, he embarks on a journey with his furry friends in search of a healing tree.

Welcome to Eden
Zoa and four other young people are invited to an exclusive party on a secret island, sponsored by a new drink. However, the supposed paradise they find waiting for them is not what they expected.

We have started adding flowers to our planters to bring some colour to the garden and make the area more nicer looking. The elephant and duck planters we got last year from Aldi.  

I've wanted to get a mini greenhouse for the garden for awhile. Blake loves watching plants grow as well so it's something we could use with him too. We originally saw one on display in Wilko unfortunately though they didn't have any in stock online or at our local store. I ended up getting the one pictured above from Amazon for about £2 more than the Wilko one and it was so easy to put together. 

*Dirty Works Sweet Sweet Scrubbin 
I'd run out of body scrub and found this one on amazon and it smells incredible. It's a mix of raspberry extract, cranberry extract and exfoliating golden sugar. 

I purchased this to go above our bed and thought it was perfect because of my love of reading. 
We try and be eco friendly where we can and I was sent the DIY beeswax wrap kit so that I could have a go at making my own reusable food wraps. They are a great alternative to using cling film, tin foil or other single use plastics. The Kikkerland DIY Beeswax Wraps are plastic-free, mouldable, and greppable. They are designed to keep germs at bay as they have antimicrobial properties. Beeswax wraps are a great way to store food for lunch boxes, when going on picnics or around the home and just need washing after use. Beeswax wraps are a great sustainable option especially as they are compostable when you are ready to dispose of them. 

There was a funfair local to us at the beginning of the month. Blake was a bit unsure but he did enjoy some of the rides with his friends.
