Review Cadbury Dairy Milk Big Taste Peanut Caramel Crisp Bar

Cadbury Dairy Milk Big Taste Peanut Caramel Crisp Bar

Cadbury's Dairy Milk Big Taste Peanut caramel crisp

Big Taste Peanut Caramel Crisp

Wow who said I loved chocolate? I may have said a few times!

I have to say when I heard about the peanut caramel crisp I wasn’t overly excited especially with the high amount of peanuts that are coming out at the moment,
But needless to say, I was ready to give it a try.

Cadbury Dairy Milk Big Taste Peanut Caramel Crisp Bar

What can I say the bar was massive which I tried hard not to over do it taste wise, well I had to make sure it was good didn't I?

Ok so each large square comes with a peanut shape on the top lovely chocolate over the top I can say my taste buds were dancing, I loved the crunch I had initially thought it was a wafer, but it's crisp, gooey caramel and softness with that crunch from the peanut and crisp.

Delicious and I'd buy it but would need to make it last to enjoy the taste.

 

Katrina Davison, Cadbury Dairy Milk Brand Manager, said: “ With the UK going nuts for nuts, we have once again made sure our fans can enjoy their favourite chocolate with a new taste and texture experience they will love. The Big Taste range is all about generous layers and textures, and Cadbury Dairy Milk Big Taste Peanut Caramel Crisp is the perfect example of why they’re so great to share.”

Cadbury Dairy Milk Big Taste Peanut Caramel Crisp is available in 278g bars, for a RRP of £3.49 at all major supermarkets.

Using song, play and interaction Mr Bloom’s Nursery is a fun and inspiring show with strong educational values which will entertain parents and tiddlers alike!

I loved how Mr Bloom tried to interact with the parents and entertain the children I know KK was enjoying it and was sad we had to leave, I don’t think 20 minuet interval is the greatest as keeping them entertained with no entertainment just a suggestion for children shows it there is an interval entertainer would be fab !

my Blogger friend over at NotaPerfectParent

gives her review of how they enjoyed it

An open letter

Today started off pretty good, aside from last night where baby had a sore ear and tummy and wasn't calming down, I thought it was best to nip to the hospital, isn't it strange the prospect of a three-hour wait medicine had kicked in so off home we went.

Night time was good actually slept most of the night, unlike the last two weeks where she has had tonsillitis and a cough she is unable to shift.

Today I was able to muster up the energy to take her out for the day after I finished the odd jobs I needed to get out of the way, when that was done she had been so good in the car we came to the centre, we hadn't been for a while due to anxiety issues.

The staff are always lovely and welcoming and always make us both feel at home before play time started baby's hair needed a trim, she sat there and had her hair trimmed with hardly and issues.

That being done mummy was feeling hungry, so we went to order some food they do lovely food.

pinterest.open.letter

Trying to get baby in the High chair was a bit of an issue, to say the least. So leaving her out while I was queuing to order lunch you was there with your friends and your three kids, I'm assuming the youngest was three years old. Baby was standing by the play bits, and I was watching, children play and mess about especially at baby's age she's two-years-old.
I watched your little one push her a few times with the other two children standing watching. Kids are kids; baby pushed back, so I called to stop anything bad happening while ordering our lunch.
Several times I went over and called while you stood with your friends talking and laughing amongst each other.

Finally managing to order lunch I sat down near where baby was playing when you approached me, "can you keep your kid away from mine, it keeps hurting my son flapping its hands about and pushing my child I've been watching"

I mustered up the courage to tell you "I have been watching, calling and pulling her away from your children who had started pushing her first but kids will be kids, and about her hands flapping and pushing she's autistic and will push people."
Your reply left me like you had punched me in the stomach "maybe you shouldn't bring her to social situations where you can't control her ?"

If only you knew how hard it had been for me to come back, how hard taking baby to places where people cannot accept differences. Given that this is national autism week I would have thought also it being a place that was set up for people and children with special needs, a bit of allowance would be given but clearly, ignorance is bliss.

I hope you enjoyed your lunch as I don't know if I would have enjoyed mine as you made me feel inadequate as a mother and intimidated me with your friends.  While holding baby in my arms during one of many meltdowns I was able to get up and ask for a refund while apologising to the lady for causing a scene.

You wouldn't know this as you were to busy allowing your children to run amok around baby and me, while chatting about how much weight you had to lose, feeling, even more, crap because there is nothing of you. I couldn't stand anymore, the room was closing in, and I couldn't breathe, so I left, as I made my way out I bumped into two staff that I knew with tears in my eyes saying that will be the last time I came and wanted to go home. Balling my eyes out baby lay in my friend's arms she collapsed from her meltdown.

Thank you for this lesson not all people can accept the differences each of us has and let kids be just that kids.

Thankfully I'm strong enough, but in reflection perhaps next time you see a mum alone don't be too sharp with your tongue, some may be weaker than me, and you could be the reason she may never leave the home again.

Since technology came into place and Kk is transfixed on YouTube it's hard to get time when the monkey is asleep for family games.
We were sent yeti in my spaghetti to try.

It made me think of when I was younger playing Kerplunk with my mum.

The aim of the game you have a bowl with plastic spaghetti criss crossed layers and at the end, you place the yetti on top.
Each person takes a turn and has to not get the yetti in the bottom of the bowl.

As you can imagine Kk is rather competitive and it was funny trying to put each other off oh you got it in the bowl, no it's still hanging in there lol then laughing when the loser gets it to the bottom.

Very simple but effective game we found it funny and enjoyable. Thank you for reading

Review The Very hungry caterpillar on stage

The very hungry caterpillar

Having grown up reading The very hungry caterpillar and loving the story, being able to see it on stage played out was an amazing experience and to share that with monkey was memorable.
bringing books to a completely new level and concept was even more amazing , when I found out not only was it the very hungry caterpillar but three other stories Eric Carle wrote, made it even more spectacular.

Created by Jonathan Rockefeller, the critically acclaimed production of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show’ features a menagerie of 75 lovable puppets, faithfully adapting four of Eric Carle stories, The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse, Mister Seahorse, The Very Lonely Firefly and of course, the star of the show - The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

The VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR

The bright colours captured the detail as though it was the page open being played in front of us. To see monkey smile and enjoy the show was a great feeling the cast and production team put a lot of attention to detail in not just the one but all four books.

Eric’s well-known books captivated readers with his iconic colorful hand-painted tissue paper collage illustrations and distinctively simple stories,
introducing generations of children to a bigger, brighter world - and to their first experience of reading itself.

Photography was allowed, this excited me immensely.

What I also found interesting was the children's focus on what was going on in the stage.
So much careful detail was put into the puppets and the choreography of the play was played out smoothly.

we went to see this at The Orchard Theatre

4-out-of-5-stars-rating
