Clean Energy Drinks for Busy Mums

As a busy working mum of 2 very active toddlers, I am forever tired. Some days, I wake feeling tired. My kids are early birds, so my day usually starts from around 5:30am on a proper early day (thank you heat wave). Or it can be as late but never later than 7:45am. And the chaos start from wake up time to bed time for 7pm (ish). I work from home, so I have to balance the family life and work life from the same roof, and make it all work somehow. Which is tiring on most days. Which is why I find myself taking anything that promises to give me some kind of energy.

I have recently come across a new drink – Flyte Clean Energy, and I was eager to try it. A pack landed on my doorstep some days ago, and I have been busy drinking. These energy drinks are not like your regular energy drinks. These are clean energy drinks, which means it is 100% sourced from nature. It has low calories and powered by organic caffeine. I got the Clean Mango and Red Berry flavours and I think they taste great! The bottles are so cute. I think they are really pretty and handy. The fact that I can open a bottle and finish it later thanks to the lid is great.

Flyte Clean Energy Green Mango

This energy drink is tasty. I love it when it’s chilled. It has a dry taste and it is great for those mornings when you need a little pick me up. It works like a dream! I love the colour a lot too.

 

Flyte Clean Energy Red Berries

This energy drink has a lovely taste. I like the light subtle berry flavour. It is a great drink to have in the afternoon as an alternative to your regular cup of coffee. It saves the day when you are feeling drained.

How to Survive Soft Play with Kids

A few days ago, we took the Kiddies to a Soft Play Centre not to far away from where we stay in Cheshire to burn off some energy. They have been quite restless these last few days thanks to the summer holidays. So having an afternoon of play and fun was planned to let off some steam. It was good old fun. The kiddies had a great time as always. They love soft play so I knew this was a going to be a hit.

The only issue we had at the Soft Play Centre in Cheshire was how dead warm the centre was. Installing some aircon would be a great idea. It was boiling at a point and we found it pretty uncomfortable but the kids didn’t mind much. They were there for the fun. Do you kids like Soft Play Centres?

To be honest, I am not a huge fan of Soft Play Centres. I find it hard to manoeuvre the tight spots and my kids always need me for one thing or the other. So I am not one of those mum that can have a cup of coffee in peace while the kids play. It is usually a lot fo work for me because I have to get involved in one way or the other, and there are usually a lot of kids. But thankfully, on this day, there were not many kids. I guess everyone was busy enjoying the sunshine outside except us. We couldn’t brave playing outdoors on that day. It was a lot hotter outside. How have you all been coping with the dead warm weather here in the UK?

Here are some tips you may need to survive your next soft play day out –

 

Pack the socks

Your kids need socks to play and so do you. You may need to get involved in a way so best to go prepared with a pair of socks in your bag for when it is needed.

 

Go after a meal

We like to go to the Soft Play Centre just after lunch and get back just before dinner. This way the kids are well fed and in the mood to play. Getting back just before dinner is also smart as the kids have usually worn themselves out and are ready for bed.

Keep an eye out on the kids

Parents should watch their kids while they play. The signs and reminders are usually all over the wall for those parents that forget or get carried away but many parents do not keep an eye on their kids when they play. I find that they are usually carried away with the conversations they are having and expect their kids to come find them when they need them.

 

Teach the kids to play nice

I always remind my kids to be nice and kind to everyone they come across. It makes the world a better place and I think it is our responsibility as parents to teach our kids manners especially in public places like a Soft Play setting.

We have survived the first week of the summer holidays and we are looking forward to the remaining 5 weeks. We have various days out and activities planned for the next couple of weeks. What plans do you have for the summer holidays?

What to put into hampers for teachers

I love giving and receiving gifts, especially thoughtful ones. Regardless of the price tag, giving a gift shows that you had the receiver in mind and it is really the thought that counts. I have recently discovered the beauty of giving hamper gifts to people. When I can’t decide on just one thing to get, I get a couple in a beautiful basket and gift it to someone special. The kids will be finishing pre school in a few weeks and I have been busy thinking of what to gift their teachers. They have been in this pre school for almost 2 years, and their teachers have been great. It would be nice to gift them an amazing hamper.

To be honest, I think teachers all over the world work really hard in comparison to what they earn. And I strongly they enjoy the work they do. Teaching is not a job you do for money. I believe the teachers are passionate about their jobs and they do it with all over their hearts and I celebrate them everyday. Kids are hard work and majority of the teachers are doing a great job. They deserve to be celebrated a bit more.

 

What to put into hampers for teachers

So what do we put into hampers for teachers? Here are some ideas –

 

Milk Chocolate Hamper

Chocolates are always a great idea for hampers. This Thorntons Milk Chocolate Hamper would be an amazing gift. We gave some Thorntons Chocolates to the teachers last Christmas and they all loved them. So I would probably be popping some Thorntons Chocolate into our gift hampers.

 

Thank You Card

A thank you card is another thing I would probably pop into a hamper. Sometimes just saying thank you for all the years of hard work isn’t enough. Which is where the thank you card could be helpful.

 

A Bottle of Wine

I would definitely be putting. bottle of wine into a hamper for the teachers. There are a few wines I have tried this year that I really like, so a few of them would be gifted. Nothing says thank you better than a bottle of a good wine.

 

A Hand Cream

Another great item to pop into a hamper is a hand cream. Most people generally like hand creams, so it is a safe gift option. Going for a natural hand cream like this ODLIQUE Lemon Butter Hand Smoothie would be a great idea.

 

Tea

A pack of tea is also a popular item for hampers. Most people like British Tea, so it is a good idea to put a pack into a hamper.

 

There are many items you could put in a hamper. It really depends on the recipient and the relationship you have with him/her.
