As a Home Educating mum of 4 children my days are super busy. Between helping the boys with their schoolwork, doing the housework, and keeping the toddler out of mischief there is barely a minute to spare. I love the full and hectic weekdays but I do look forward to the weekend when I can have an hour or two to myself. Recently I have been using the Mummy Reward Chart from Stationery Geek to choose a treat to look forward to at the weekend.
The Mummy Reward Chart is such a fun idea. Each day I choose an acheivement sticker and then at the end of the week I choose a reward such as a bubble bath, chocolate, wine or a takeaway. Examples of the acheivement stickers include, We weren’t late! I didn’t shout! I did it! and my favourite, I had a hot cup of tea!
There are five pages of the chart each with space for 12 weeks so it will last all year. There are also 3 sheets of stickers. It is spiral bound and has holes punched so that it can be hung on the wall. The chart is great quality and is priced at £5.50. It would make a great gift for any mum and is sure to put a smile on their face. If you would like a chance to win a Chart then enter via the Gleam widget below.

Little Miss loves to help me bake. It’s one of our favourite things to do at the weekend. I always wear an apron when baking but hadn’t got around to getting one for Little Miss. When Arty Apple got in touch a few weeks ago to offer us an item to review the Personalised Aprons caught my eye straight away.
The Apron arrived beautifully packaged in a cardboard box with the Arty Apple logo on the front. The box is sturdy and will be useful for storage. Inside the apron was wrapped in tissue paper and sealed with an Arty Apple sticker.
The apron is made from denim with bright pink neck and waist ties and has a cute cupcake embroidered on the front along with Little Miss’ name. The apron is high quality and both Little Miss and I are delighted with it. The denim is hardwearing and washes well which is great as we do a lot of baking! Arty Apple also do the apron with blue ties and a gingerbread man motif.
Arty Apple is run by Amy who says she is a multi-tasking mummy with a passion for gorgeous fabrics and hand made crafts. She aims to give her customers a personal service to find perfect gifts with the assurance that they are made by hand with love.
There is a beautiful range of personalised gifts to choose from including bunting, taggie blankets, hooded towels and teddy bears. If you are looking for a good quality gift with a personal touch that will be treasured by the recipient be sure to check out what Arty Apple has to offer.
The aprons are available in two sizes, 2-6 years priced £13.00 and 7-13 years priced £15.00.

Chicken Fajita Stuffed Peppers is one of our favourite recipes, it is delicious and super healthy too. The fajita seasoning is mild enough for children to enjoy. It is quick and easy to prepare making it a perfect midweek family meal. The recipe serves two but is easily doubled.
2 chicken breasts
2-3 mushrooms (optional)
2 tsp mild chilli powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne
Chop the chicken and onion and fry until onion is soft and chicken is cooked through.
Meanwhile half and de-seed the peppers in place in a preheated oven at 180C.
When the onion and chicken is ready stir in the fajita seasoning and fry for a few more minutes.
Then put the chicken mixture into the peppers and top with grated cheese.
Place in the oven for another 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and serve with salad or vegetables.
