Summit Motion Sac Sleep Suit


I really do feel the cold, our sofa has 4 separate blankets on or next to it as I type this so I was very happy to be sent a Summit Motion Sac Sleep Suit  from Planet Camping to test out.

It’s basically a sleeping bag with arms and legs built in. There are zips at the end of the arms so you can free your fingers and the feet are detachable so if you’re camping you can slip your wellies on.

The Motion Sac is really lightweight but suitable for 3 seasons, so is suitable from 5 to -5 degrees celsius and it packs down really small thanks to it’s stuff sack, so it’s no hassle to carry around.

They come in two sizes, I went for the medium one and it’s the perfect size, there’s loads of room inside.

This sleep suit would be perfect for festival goers, as well as run of the mill camping. Night time trips to the toilet block would be a cozy doddle wearing one of these!

Now, as a family, we aren’t big campers so I wanted to see how useful a Motion Sac would be at home, so this weekend I spent some time coming up with alternate uses.

It turns out there are loads of things you can do with a Summit Motion Sac that don’t involve camping or even sleeping…

1) It helps you save money, instead of sticking the heating on you can crawl into the motion suit and still do all the housework!

2) You can totally put the recycling bins out in the morning and not feel the cold.

3) Fed up getting cold when you’re scraping ice off the car? A Motion Sac can help with that!

4) I imagine if we had a dog, it’d probably be the perfect dog walking coat and trousers combo.

5) I no longer work from home in my PJs, I can now feel like I’m still in bed by working in my Sleep Suit!

6) Next summer I’ll be able to stay out in the garden longer into the evening after dinner. As the temperature drops I can just zip myself up into my Motion Sac and watch the sun go down.

The Sleep Suit is genius, the kids love it and have asked for one each for Christmas, can you picture us all sat on the couch wearing them in a row?!

A warning though, the Sleep Suit does lead to you, or me at least, pulling a lot of daft faces. I think the shock of feeling so comfy whilst not being in bed sent me slightly doolally!

Point + Shoot – 01.12.2015


Thank you to everyone who joined in with Point + Shoot last week.

This week I’m sharing my new Motion Sleep Sac with you, serious awesome invention!

Our winning post from last week comes from Emma over at The Joy Of Five, I love the sky in this photo, just beautiful.

I am very happy to announce that our favourite post each week will receive an awesome colour bright photo mug from the lovely peeps over at Photobox.

You don’t have to play every week, just drop by when you have something to share. You don’t need a fancy DSLR either, a phone camera works just as well.

As for the photos, they can be absolutely anything. If you saw it, or did it, at the weekend, then photograph it and link up.

Kicking Off Christmas


This weekend I had great plans. I had organised for us to visit two separate Christmas Tree farms to take our Christmas card photos.

But the weather forecast was soggy and windy and on Friday, Photobox had an amazing deal on their Christmas photo cards which I’d have been daft to pass up.

So, I shelved our photo shoot plans, ordered cards with existing pictures and saved myself a bundle of money.

In the end we decided to put up the Christmas decorations instead and kick off the festive season.

We spent the Sunday in our PJs, and a giraffe kigu for me, we watched Arthur Christmas, listened to Christmas music and I introduced Annie to the Tomodachi Life demo on the 3DS, think we know what she wants for Christmas!

I love how in the second photo you can see just how small the kiddos PJs are and that they only have nail varnish left on their big toes – I’m such a lazy Mama!

How was your weekend?

A Sunday Photo – 29.11.2015


Bostik Blogger Snowman bauble | Christmas Tree |

This weekend we decorated the house and the kiddos were very proud to stick this homemade bauble on the tree.

It was really easy to make but looks fantastic.

We rolled out some Fimo and cut out a circle and some stars and then baked them in the oven.

When they had cooled Annie painted the stars yellow and the circle blue. It took about 3 coats because my acrylic paints are a bit rubbish.

When Annie was satisfied she painted a snowman and snowflakes onto the disc. The snowman took another 3 coats of paint, I really do need to replace my paints!

As soon as the paint was dry she drew on the details with a Sharpie marker and I hot glued some twine to the back so it would hang on the tree.

What an easy craft that produced some lovely results, roll on Christmas!

Happy Sunday!

Button Snowman Decoration


When I saw the theme for this month’s November Bostik Blogger challenge was snow I knew immediately what I wanted to make first.

I saw these button snowman decorations last year but didn’t have any buttons so have been saving buttons all year. Luckily there were some extra buttons in this months craft box so I finally had enough to make my snowmen.

This is a really easy craft and perfect for kiddos.

We threaded them onto a pipe cleaner but if you have any ribbons or festive looking twine then that would look lovely too.

The kids had fun threading the buttons on and working out which order they needed to do it in.

We used a red button for the scarf, white ones for the snowman’s body and head and little dark purple ones for his hat as I couldn’t find any tiny black ones!

Using the pipe cleaner meant I could twist the excess around the loop to strengthen the hook.

This will look fab on our Christmas tree when we put it up later on today!
