You can order most things online and get them delivered directly to your door now, clothes, groceries, gifts. Do you like it? I love internet shopping, i love the convenience, I love being able to order a gift and get it delivered direct to the person if need be, I love it!

What about ordering a cake through the post though? I have to admit when I was asked to have a taste of Baker Days Valentines Letterbox cake I was sceptical, how on earth could a cake travel through the mail, enter your house through the letterbox and be tasty and in one piece?

Well I was about to find out!

So, I put in my order for a beautiful looking personalised valentine cake and sat back and waited!

So what happened next? Well, you will never believe it, but a white box came through the letterbox, yep actually through the letterbox and landed on the mat! In the box was a small card, a packet of love hearts and a round cake tin that said just for you on it! I was worried about opening the tin, would I find a cake in there or would it be something that once was a cake?

Much to our pleasure it was indeed a cake, and not the tiny cake you would expect from the way it had travelled, you could get 4 decent sized slices (maybe more depending on how you cut!)  and added to that; an absolutely gorgeous smelling cake at that. As soon as I open the tin the smell hit me and it made me want to eat the cake straight away, yum! The cake was a surprise for hubby, and he was impressed! The writing on it was perfect, the picture great and the fact it had come in the post really made him smile!

So it had passed the letterbox test and the attractiveness test, so there was only one real test left – the taste test! We cut into the cake, shared it out (well we all had to test) and drooled a little….it was delicious! bakerDays Cake two

To say the cake had survived the journey is an understatement, it was in one piece, moist and tasty! It was fantastic, Monkey and the Mouse both had some and enjoyed it and Hubby thought I was the best wife ever (well he thinks that anyway, but the cake got me brownie points!).  There was a small bit left that Hubby had a couple of days later and he said it was still good, hadn’t dried out at all!

This is a unique idea, something I have never seen before and something I thought wouldn’t work, but actually I have tried it and I like it! The fact you can send someone a cake even if you can’t be with them for a special occasion is brilliant! There are over 400 designs and your choice doesn’t stop there, you can have sponge, carrot, gluten free and more!

So for valentines this year, consider sending a cake – it will be worth it!

We were sent the cake for the purpose of this review, all thoughts are honest

We are coming to the end of our ‘test period’ with our Maclaren products, so here we are to wrap up with a final round up of what we think.

Maclaren Junior Techno xt

The toddler (Legs) was lucky enough to receive this pushchair, and as soon as it arrived he loved it, there were no worries of it being a ‘girl’s toy’ at all – probably because he sees Daddy pushing around his baby sister (Mouse) in a pushchair.

Legs loves that it is a ‘real life’ toy, he feels grown up playing with it and it is so cute watching him act all parent like with his toys as he takes them for a walk, he puts his shopping in the basket and lies them down when they have fallen asleep.

The Novelty hasn’t warn off at all, I was have expecting it to fall by the wayside – as toys often do when new toys arrive over Christmas, but it is the perfect accessory to the new toys! He can use it to take Loopy to the shop (He got a till) or Sweetie Pie can sit in it to watch the Big Gig (he also got a guitar)!

It seems this is one of them toys that will go on and on, the play will just adapt and it will grow with him!

Both Mummy and Daddy loved it too. Daddy because it is so easy to put together, Mummy because it is so realistic without being complicated, and it keeps the children happy for hours; even the Mouse at 9 months old likes to have a look and putting things in and out the basket!

A definite Thumbs up from us!


Beginning…………..by Maclaren Travel Kit for Baby

Mouse was a perfect tester for this gift set of trial sized products, it is hard for her to tell me exactly what she thinks being so young, but I can happily tell you she loved the products!

As you will have seen from our previous review, the first day we used the items she slept though the night for the first time in six months – bliss, and I would say they have had a calming effect since too! The smell is lovely, they are easy to use and we will definitely keep using them!

The talc and nappy cream is in the changing bag from a visit to the in-laws, well I wanted to make sure we had something with us as we rushed out the door on a impromptu visit! In fact from now on a couple of items will live in the bathroom and a couple in the bag, so wherever we are, we will have them to hand!

Another definite thumbs up!!

When you are a parent some things happen that can only be described as Sod’s Law, so here is a short list of Mummy and Daddy annoyances!

  1. Children only get really ill when the doctors is shut!
  2. A child who normally sleeps through anything will wake at the sound of the second child crying in the night, meaning you have to deal with two at the same time!
  3. The morning your child/ren sleep in till 9, you are wide awake at 5.30am
  4. The only drinks that get knocked over are dark coloured ones – light coloured non-staining ones are perfectly safe!
  5. You child will love the one TV programme you really really dislike!
  6. The children are up all night the one night you really need to sleep because you are up early for a meeting/presentation/important appointment
  7. You get an invite to the super duper ‘should not be missed’ party the one day you can no way get a babysitter!
  8. Your child/ren will inevitably want what they can’t have – the sandwich feeling you don’t have in, the Zingzillas when it’s not on, sleep when you are visiting people!
  9. The only toy they will want to play at 5 in the morning is the drums!
  10. The moment you get a moment to yourself, there is that much to do you don’t know where to start, and by the time you get going the children are back/awake/needing attention etc…….
