The beginning of the week has been hard on Blake as he was sent home from school unwell Monday afternoon. He felt warm and was floppy so we picked him up early. When we got him home we tested his temperature which luckily was normal. A short while later he was sick and requested to be in his pjs and just laid on the sofa until he put himself to bed at 7pm. He was not sick again and so was able to go back to school on Thursday and was definitely back to his normal energetic self by then.

Today we went to a party as we were invited to celebrate a friends twin girls second birthday. Blake had a lovely time and was thrilled sitting with his friends eating pizza, chicken nuggets and grapes. There was a little soft play but Blake was happy just wondering round and exploring the outdoor area of the pub that the party was held at.


Ad – Review. Stuart was gifted a Toppbox personalised grooming set in return for review purposes, however all thoughts are our own. 

Toppbox is a personalised grooming subscription box for men, delivering a personalised assortment of 5-7 full sized grooming products with a value of up to £70 to  members all over the UK every 2 months. They feature products that cover all aspects of men's grooming routine, from hair, skin and body care products to shave and beard care, with a new selection of products covering a different aspect of your grooming routine in each delivery.

How does it work?

It's pretty simple - when signing up you fill in a profile that helps them to personalise your grooming box. The profile consists of your age, your skin type, facial hair type and your hair length. This is so that the products you receive in your box are ideal for your needs. It really is just as easy as that!

How much does it cost?

The subscription is £24 plus £3.35 P&P and boxes are delivered once every 2 months.  You can cancel, suspend or restart your subscription just by logging into your account. 

Grooming isn't just for women, it's important for men to look after the hair and skin too. This is why I think the concept of the personalised grooming box for men is such a great idea.
