Sonnet For A Newborn

Last month we become Grandparents for the second time to another beautiful little girl. We are overjoyed and full of hopes and dreams for the newest addition to our family. I wrote a sonnet about our first meeting.

Sonnet For A Newborn

Wrapped up tight like a Battenburg delight
full of sparkle; shimmering, zip, zing, ah
tingling sentimentality shining bright
eyed. Forward thinking, fresh cuppa char. 
Comfortably cradled in arms swaddled
with love at first sight; beaming we coo.
An awe of admiration cram huddled
together; we fit snug as an old shoe.
I look at my boy stone dead on his feet;
undaunted, exhausted and proud as punch,
drunk on dreams of mastering the car seat,
noxious nappies and winding after lunch.
A good father he will be, I can honestly say
with certainty; so freely in his way.

Top Tips On How To Create A Wonderful Garden This Summer

Planting a garden this summer? If so, how do you go about setting it up, and making the most of a limited space?

If you would like some expert advice on how to improve your garden you could hire a gardener from an online directory.
If you have tight quarters to work with, but want a gorgeous space to enjoy, these are a few tips to consider allowing you to make the most out of any space you have. 

Consider growing up 
Stacked flower pots, long vines, and flowing trees, are a few great options. If you don't have too much ground space to work with, why not work your way up? You can incorporate several colours, varieties, and different arrangements which will look great. 

Choose the right soil 
Your garden is only going to grow with the right soil. So, don't skimp on low quality soil which will cause plants to wilt, die, and won't grow over the summer months. The right fertilizer is also going to help your plants grow, and help your garden flourish. 

Go with colour 
Add a variety of flowers, colours, and blends. You don't have to keep it simple, you can make your garden stand out with the right colour blends. And, as long as you take the time to properly choose the floral arrangements and patterns, you don't have to worry about the space looking tacky or over the top. 

There is no single way to go about creating a garden space. Although you do have to account for the area you live (weather, rain, sun, etc), you don't have to completely limit yourself when creating the garden space. So keep these simple tips in mind when you are setting up your garden space and when you want to create a space which is not only going to look good, but is also going to stand out no matter how small the space you are working with is.

Chocolate Picture Maker by Zimpli Kids

We are always keen to try chocolate products, especially if they involve melting chocolate and making our own Easter gifts. We just love it. Zimpli kids have a really fab chocolate picture maker that is guaranteed to keep the kids occupied over the Easter holidays.

It is really easy to use as it only requires warm tap water to melt the chocolate which then allows you to completely personalise a chocolate bar. It is great fun, gluten free and contains no artificial colours or preservatives.

We had a lot of fun making ours and we are keen to use the kit again. The kit comes with some really cute templates, but I'm sure you could quite easily print your own templates from the internet and get really creative. Big Thumbs Up from The Syders! Most definitely recommend.

Available from Amazon, Asda and Toys R Us.

*We were sent a chocolate picture maker free of charge for the purpose of this review. All opinions are unbiased and 100% honest.

So, whether you are five or fifty-five years old there are a number of great colouring books you can find available today which will serve a variety of purposes. Colouring is one of the many activities you can engage in which will allow you to alleviate your mind, clear the clutter and help alleviate the stress you deal with on a day in, day out basis.

With adult themed issues with more complex and detailed items to colour and with various themes and choice books to choose from, there are a number of great items which adults can choose from. There are loads of retailers which offer adult colouring books.

There are also colouring books for teens and individuals who are a bit older (middle aged). Many companies are designing these colouring books in a manner which will call attention to different demographics, based on their likes and dislikes. From shows and movies to your favourite TV character there are a variety of great colouring books which can be found on the shelves of many stores as well as with online retailers available for purchase today. 

Regardless of your age, creativity level or likes/dislikes, there are many options you can find available in stores if you are looking to engage in a stress relieving activity such as colouring.
