Our loft/attic conversion- some advice

We have discussed our renovation projects at length on the blog.  We are getting there finally.  Last piece of the epic project was the conversion of our attic or loft space. The boys are getting older and  they really wanted a “boys den”. The most logical place to do this was the attic space.  There isnt enough head room to make it a bedroom for adults but there would be plenty room the kids to stand for quite a few more years.

The Stairs

The best piece of advice I can give here is to do you research.  Price and quality really does vary considerably and if like our it is going to be in almost daily use, durability will be critical. Many hour were spent pouring over google, Pintrest and home & interiors magazines. The stairs for us would also be a focal point as they lead on from the current staircase.  I have completely fallen in love with the designs and selections from Fontanot stairs designers.   Within reason I never mind spending money on quality.  These stairs will be in place for sometime to come so as well as being durable they need to be easy on the eye too or else it will drive me crazy every time I look at them!

How utterly amazing are the floating steps staircase.  I mean wow, want want want.  My kids are little too young for us to have these yet but in another couple of years this is the dream.  I love clean lines and that sharp crisp look and they totally tick all the boxes for me.  I have even checked, our wall is load bearing and suitable to accommodate them! Hint hint Dada Fairy!!!

Light – natural and artificial

Lighting is important especially for the attic.  I wanted as much natural light as I could without spending a huge amount of money on roof structural alterations. We went with 3 velux windows which bring in tonnes of natural light. They really make this space so workable.  Having shopped around we ended up buying blinds from Sterling Build. We went with three different types of Star Wars blinds  and they worked out so much cheaper than buying direct from Velux. Quality is perfect and they are blackout blinds which make it it ideal if we did decide to use the room as a bedroom for sleep overs etc.  We also added a huge amount of artificial light with integrated spot lights.

I am so thrilled with the outcome its a very usable space.  The kids really do love it and especially enjoy the pals coming over for play dates or movie nights. Has anybody else converted their attic spaces? I’d love to see some pics.

Reviews for Mama & Babas

Imaginative Play during the summer holidays thanks to Casdon

School holidays are upon us and each year its the same challenge keeping my pair entertained.  While I do allow screen time it is very much in moderation.  I prefer to let them use their own imaginations through play. I have written about this before – imaginative play is always high on the agenda in The Mamma Fairy house.  We were very fortunate to receive a fabulous bundle of treats from Casdon for my crazy pair to try out.  As I mentioned before my youngest is affectionately knows as Mr Destruction possessing the unique ability to destroy even the best made toys!

We received three products to review:

  • Toy Play Food Set
  • Toy Shopping Trolley
  • Henry Mop and Bucket

First a little bit about the brand. Casdon have been making replicas of real products for over 65 years. You will see names like Hetty and Henry and the renowned Dyson brand.  When you have a look at their website you will want to be a child again. Huge selection of products available.

I’m going to review this in order of preference as determined by kids ages almost 6 and 3.  A First up is….

toy food

Casdon Play Food Set

Toy Play Food Set

I tried to get a picture before they tore the packing apart but had little success.  They were immediately drawn to the food set. There are 44 realistic items in it. They are a great size, realistic details and the size is just perfect for little hands.  I’ve been pretend eating all sorts of strange concoctions since this arrived! They are looking for an oven next. Hopefully some real life skills being learned here too!  This is a great gift idea as I can see how it would provide lots of varied play for kids.

 

Henry Mop and Bucket

Shopping Trolley and Henry Mop

This is utterly adorable. My youngest in particular loved this one. We have a real Henry in this house so he loved following me around with his mop and bucket. Priced around €8 this is a a great little gift idea. Probably aimed more for the younger of the age bracket. Nonetheless a well made toys with lots of potential

 

Toy Shopping Trolley

I’m DIY challenged so I delegated the making of this one to the Dada Fairy! He is much better (more patience) than me for these kinds of tasks! It did take him a little bit of time which either means its a bit fiddly or else he was distracted by the world cup! Once assembled again its a sturdy toy which comes with a selection food.  When coupled with the Toy Play Food set above the boys had a huge amount of pretend food in their supermarket.  Again probably aimed at the lower end of the age bracket as they handle isnt very tall.  However both of mine enjoyed this one and I can see lots of play from this one too.

I am a fan of real life simulated play and Casdon not only with the above but across their entire range deliver that in spades.  With the durability, selection and playabilty I will definitly but coming back to Casdon for future products.  Already on my list for my nieces upcoming birthday.

 

Note: We were sent the above for review, however all opinion are  mine or the boys where appropriate.

5 Things you Can Donate for Good Causes

When we give something, it gives us a warm feeling inside knowing that we are doing something good for someone that we will likely never meet. We all wish that we could do more for good causes, however, life often gets in the way and although our good intentions are there we can be guilty of never getting round to it.

With that being said, though, there are many things that we can choose to give that will make a difference for the better. Whether you feel that you have a lot or a little to give, it is important to remember that every act of charity, no matter the size, has the ability to change someone’s life.

Toys

Charity shops and gift initiatives are always welcoming of toys that they can use. When children grow older, they move on from the toys that they used to play with, often still in perfect condition. While your child may no longer play with their discarded set of Barbie dolls or action figures, there will be a little boy or girl out there somewhere that would love them.

Clothes

Just as toys become forgotten about, so too do clothes. In everyone’s wardrobe there are shirts, dresses and other clothing that serve no other purpose than clogging up rail space. Whether it is a case that your old clothes simply do not fit you anymore, you have long since forgotten about them or they were an unwanted gift, they will certainly be wanted elsewhere.

Homeless shelters are always open to receiving clothing to help keep those who live on the streets warm. Children’s charities are also open to accepting the clothing your children have grown out of for young children that are living in poverty. Before throwing away any unwanted materials, consider why you are throwing it away – is it damaged beyond repair, or could it still be worn?

Blood

Giving Blood

There is always a mass calling for blood, with Ireland currently seeing a shortage in blood with demand not decreasing anytime soon. When you agree to give blood, you will find out your blood group if you do not already know it.

If your blood group is O-Negative, you should certainly look to donate as this is known as the universal group as it is compatible with every other blood group. Those with AB-Positive blood can receive blood of any type, although this is the rarest type of the eight variants.

Money

The most common form of donation is, of course, money. Fundraising events are held nearly every day with charities and those that support them looking to spread the word of their cause all while raising money. In many religions and cultures, giving to charity is an obligation – for example, Muslims will make an annual payment known as zakat, which is a percentage of disposable income.

Time

Finally, if you have absolutely nothing else that you can give then you can give the gift of time. Volunteering to help with events, work at a shelter for a few hours or going the extra mile and putting yourself forward to go abroad and get hands on. Any time that you can give for others can make a difference, so even if it is just an hour every other week, do not think that it will not be appreciated.

Alternative Adventure Activities All the Family Can Enjoy This Summer

If you’re seeking some alternative ways to spend time together as a family this summer, why not aim for a little adventure? Adventure-based activities are great for children’s development, they help you to bond as a family and they keep you and the kids active.

So, what type of alternative adventure activities can you take part in? Below, you’ll discover just some activities you’ll want to consider.

Quad skating

 Back before the development of technology, children used to spend hours skating outdoors. While roller blades can be potentially dangerous, quad skates really couldn’t be safer. Why not treat the kids to a new pair of quad skates this summer? You can pick up some pretty cool looking skates these days from stores such as SkateHut.

The great thing about quad skates is that they’re affordable and enjoyable to use. They’re also suitable for most age groups and loved equally by boys and girls. You could even pick up some adult skates and join in. You’ll be surprised how enjoyable skating can be as an adult.

Birth Story Expeirences

I have two wonderful, happy and healthy little men, however their entry into this world was anything but straightforward. I love to write which is why I started blogging.

However I can’t seem to bring myself to write my own boys birth stories, its still all too fresh in my head.  I often wonder why, envying women who seem to be able to take it all in their stride.  Was it something I did? Is there something wrong with me? Or was in medical negligence? Maybe ill never know.

I decided to speak to some fellow bloggers to share their birth stories.

Each one different yet each one equally magical.  Bringing a new life into the world is an experience ill probably never be able to convey properly into words.

Birth experiences

 

  • First up is Lisa who shares here own experience on her blog Irish Baby Fairy. Lisa is a mid-wife herself so I was very interested to read her story.  Uniquely she is able to give us perspectives from the both sides in the labor ward. A story well worth a read.
  • Next is Hayley who blogs at I am River. I just love that name, if and thats a big if, I ever have more kids I may need to steal this name.  The positivity in this post really resonates with me.
  • Lyndsay- Rose writes at My Family of Roses and talks about not having a birth plan on her second. Her first was premature but second time round it was a very different experience. Showing us how different birth experiences can be.
  • I just love the pure honesty in Georgina who writes at Gee Garnder post.  After a very difficult pregnancy her beautiful baby was born full term, healthy and happy with no complications.
  • Nicola who blogs at Mummy to Dex shares her own experience of the birth of Dexter.  This post is really detailed and gives a great insight into Dexters birth. Again a very informative post well worth a read.

I really do enjoy reading other peoples birth stories, its gives me hope that maybe just maybe if I rolled the dice one more time I may have a calmer, more straightforward birth. We will see!

Top tips for dealing with the warm weather for kids & babies

This week we have been fortuante enough to speak to an expert from LloydsPharmacy who very kindly took the time to share her expert advice and guidance on dealing with these unusually warm tempartures we are having here.  These tip are also excellent to have if you are jetting off this summer too.

1. Sunburn

My pair are blue eyed, blonde and pale so preventing sunburn is very important, Rebecca has set out her top tips to prevent sunburn below:

We all know that sunburn is a huge risk factor for skin cancer, but did you know that much of the UV damage that leads to skin cancer happens in the early years of life. All children are at risk of UV damage, even those who tan easily.

  • Wear sunscreen, SPF 15 or higher in adults and SPF 30 or higher in kids and reapply every TWO hours.
  • Stick to the shade where you can to limit your exposure to UV rays. Babies under 6 months should be kept in the shade as much as possible. Make sure the shade casts a dark shadow.
  • Cover up as much sun-exposed skin as possible and wear a wide-brimmed hat made of cloth, or other close-woven material to give shade to the face, neck, head and ears.
  • Don’t forget to protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses, sun exposure over time can lead to cataracts and cancer.
  • These tips apply whether you’re at home or away, UV damage is just as harmful from Irish sun as abroad. We’re getting an unusually hot spell right now but everyone needs to take just as much care on cloudy but bright days – up to 90% of UV rays can pass through cloud.

2.  Dehydration

I am always very aware at getting liquids into the boys during this heat. Some tips from Rebecca include:

  • Water should be given to counteract dehydration in hot or humid weather and should be drunk before you get to the stage of feeling thirsty.
  • Oral rehydration solutions such as Dioralyte replace salts, as well as water, lost through sweating.
  • Kids should be encouraged to drink water or a sports drink before, during and after any exercise in hot weather.
  • Adults should remember that tea, coffee and other caffeine containing drinks are diuretics and can worsen rather than help dehydration. The same goes for another diuretic, alcohol!
  • Children in cars need special attention as temperatures in cars can reach dangerously high levels very quickly. Children should never be left in a parked car.
  • If a child suddenly becomes dizzy, nauseated or weak in hot weather, bring them inside or at least in the shade. Give them lots of water or a sports drink and cool them down with a tepid shower or a sponge bath and fan air over their moist skin. Seek medical attention if their symptoms get worse or last for more than an hour.
  • Also avoid sun in the middle of the day, ideally between 11 and 4pm as sunburn stops your body from cooling itself down properly. Wear loose, light clothing that will allow the sweat to evaporate by allowing air to flow around the skin. Avoid dark clothing as this absorbs more heat than light colours.

relexa Hotel Berlin – Family Travel Review

relexa Hotel Berlin – Our Review

Earlier in 2018 we visited the lovely city of Hamburg so I was very curious to see how similar or not Berlin was going to be.  Berlin was a very last minute decision for us. I unusually hadn’t done my months of research so in a panic booked the relexa Hotel mostly due it location. I like being central when travelling with kids. I peeked into Trip Advisor after booking and there were some mixed review so I was a tad nervous. I decided to go with it and off we went on a very early flight with the Grandparents in tow!

The Hotel

The relexa comprises 208 rooms decked out in a neutral colour scheme. The building itself it located down a quiet side street. There is a restaurant called Boulevard on site which serves a mix of international dishes as well as a bar and outdoor courtyard where you can eat or have a drink. Also on siste is relexa cooking which offers all kinds of cookery related demonstrations, classes and themed events. There is also a spa area with sauna, steam bath as well as a fitness and relaxation room.

The Location.

The relexa hotel commends a pretty impressive location in Berlin, and to my mind this is probably its biggest selling point. I can be a tad hard to please when it comes to location as I like central but quiet, walking distance within reason and a safe area. I’d prefer not to be totally reliant on public transport when travelling with kids. From the relexa hotel we could walk to all of the key attractions, it is situated between the Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie. You are literally minutes for Potsdamer Platz with its array of eateries and bars and to the far side you have the Berlin Zoo and the German Technical Museum. We walked to all of the attractions we had wanted to do,  Legoland Discovery Centre, the Parliament Building, the Berlin Wall, Aqua Dom and more!

Despite being in the midst of everything it was really quiet and felt very safe. Another huge plus was the Lidl just around the corner. I had forgotten sunscreen and was very handy to pop around for that plus a few goodies for the kids before bed.

The Room

We had a Junior Suite which was totally adequate for our needs. They located my parents next door which was great as the kids were in and out to visit Nana and Grandad. I understand the hotel is going through some renovation work. My parent’s room was a lot newer and the décor was really nice.

Ours while a lot bigger was a little tired looking but spotlessly clean and lovely size for the four of us. The separate sitting room is a big plus when travelling with kids as you can watch some TV and chill while they are in bed. The Junior Suite comes with a small complimentary mini bar too. Very much appreciated.

 

We had a view of the hot air balloon directly infront of us and the Berlin TV tower just off to the right. The kids loved watching that balloon up and down. None of us had the nerve to actually go up on it!

The Facilities

The breakfast was very good and really set us up for the day. While it was busy it was replenished quickly and we always got a table. The selection was great with plenty for adults and the kids to choose from. We escaped one of the nights while the grandparents baby sat and had dinner in the hotel and drinks in the cocktail bar (my mouth is still watering for the Gin Fizz cocktails). The food was amazing. So fresh and tasty. Id go back for the food alone. This was totally unexpected as you really never know  with hotel food.

The outdoor courtyard was a lovely way to have a coffee or beer before retiring to the room in the evening after a busy day sightseeing.

We didn’t get a chance to try the Spa but there is always next time!

The Verdict

As I said above if location is top of your agenda you will have this here. Everything is so close and easily walkable even with the kids. The food was really good with great selection for adults and kids. The hotel is ideal for families and the rooms are a good size for a city hotel. WiFi was free and perfectly adequate for us. The staff were efficient not overly friendly but that fine with me! We have resolved to come back as three days really wants enough to see all this eclectic city has to offer. When we do come back we will be coming back here without a doubt. I usually like to try new places if we return to a city but this property suited us perfectly and lets face it why fit something that not broken!!

Mamma Fairy Insider tips

  • If budget permits go for the Junior Suite – lots of space, complimentary mini bar and bottled water replenished each day
  • Book the breakfast, you will be well feed for the day ahead
  • The parliament building is about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. Its free in but you need to book in advance, its 100% worth it and even the kids loved it.
  • We had a late flight departing Berlin so decided to wile aware a few hours a t the nearby German Technical museum. I can say hand on heart this is quite possible one of the best museums I have every visited. Incredible, really incredible. We were a party of ages 3 to 60+ and everybody enjoyed. The kids didn’t want to leave and that’s after spending 5 hours. Do it, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
  • Don’t bother with the paid upgraded wifi – the free one is totally fine.
  • Ask for a renovated room and one facing the city. The view of the TV Tower at night time is lovely

Your Guide to an Eco Friendly Period

This  month we have something a little different and hopefully very useful – .We are delighted to have Jackie Bolen a self confessed tree-hugging friend of the Earth guest posting this month. When not working on Reusable Menstrual Cups (https://reusablemenstrualcup.com/), she can often be found paddling the rivers, on top of a mountain, or drinking coffee around Vancouver, Canada. Her hope is that one day, a menstrual cup or cloth pad will be found in the hands of every single menstruating person in the world.

 

I have few regrets in life, but this is one of them…

I didn’t realize that there were eco friendly period options until I was in my early 30’s. I honestly thought that my two choices were disposable pads or tampons.   I’m not sure why I didn’t know this—maybe I was hanging around the wrong people, or maybe these products just weren’t as popular as they are now. Whatever the case, I’m happy that I made the switch, although I do regret all those wasted years (and money!).   I’ll talk about what’s wrong with traditional feminine hygiene products and then offer a couple of eco-friendly alternatives for you to consider.

 

What’s Wrong with Disposable Pads and Tampons?

Pads and tampons are expensive. According to the Huffington Post, people spend an average of 13 Pounds on pads or tampons each month. This can add up to thousands over a lifetime. According to that same article, only 6% of people in the UK are using a menstrual cup. This means that 94% of people are using disposables.   Estimates vary, but it’s thought that the average person produces 100-150 kg of waste during a lifetime from feminine hygiene products. These products, by their nature aren’t recyclable. 90% of disposable pads are non-biodegradable plastic, which will still be hanging around thousands of years from now.    This isn’t a huge amount of waste when compared to other things, but it’s not ideal especially when considering that there are far less wasteful options.

The final reason why disposables aren’t great is because they sometimes contain trace amounts of pesticides and other toxic chemicals. Although not found in huge quantities, repeated exposure to these things is thought to potentially have some serious side effects. There aren’t a lot of studies related to this, nor is there much information from the manufacturing companies about what exactly is in their products.

Overall, disposable pads and tampons are expensive, and also not great for the environment or our health. Thankfully, there are some cheaper, healthier, eco-friendly period options.

Reusable Option #1: Menstrual Cups

As only 6% of menstruating people in the UK use menstrual cup, you may not know what they are.   They are bell-shaped cylinders, usually made from medical grade silicone, and are designed to replace tampons. The best thing about them is that they’re reusable, and with proper care and cleaning, can last for 5-10 years.   A menstrual cup is obviously much better for the environment than thousands of pads or tampons, particularly if you have a heavy and/or long flow. There’s more good news—menstrual cups can often be recycled, depending on where you live.  Period cups cost around 20 pounds, which makes them slightly more expensive than disposable products in the short term. But when compared to the 13 pounds a month on disposables, you’ll be saving money in only a couple of months.

The final reason to consider making the switch to a menstrual cup is because they don’t contain chemicals and pesticides in them. Just be sure to get a top-quality menstrual cup that won’t degrade quickly and avoid the cheap ones from China.   To date, there has only been one reported case of toxic shock syndrome related to menstrual cup usage, unlike with tampons where there are thousands of cases.

If you live in the UK, an excellent option is the Brighton based MoonCup. It’s one of the oldest, most established menstrual cup companies in the world. Shipping is free and you can order directly from their website here. You’ll be well on your way to an eco-friendly period!

Or, consider the Lena Cup. Although it’s relatively new, it’s quickly become one of the most popular menstrual cups. It has some of the best user reviews on Amazon, and it’s often a little bit cheaper than something like the MoonCup.

Reusable Option #2: Cloth Menstrual Pads

The next eco-friendly period option is cloth menstrual pads. They are similar to disposable pads, except that they’re reusable. You just have to wash them with your regular laundry. The best ones are stain resistant, or are made from dark fabric.    Cloth pads cost around 5 pounds each, or you can make your own for cheaper. Like menstrual cups, they can last for 5-10 years and most people find that a set of 6 is enough to get through their period. Again, you’d be saving money by using reusable pads in only a couple of months when compared to disposables.   Cloth menstrual pads can go a long way towards reducing waste going to the landfill, particularly of the plastic variety. They are made from natural materials like charcoal, bamboo and cotton so once thrown away, they’ll biodegrade. I’ve even heard of people burying cloth pads in their garden once they’re done with them!    Finally, cloth pads don’t contain all the toxic chemicals and pesticides that the disposable ones do. Just be sure to wash them before use.

The best place to buy cloth pads is on Amazon. They have the full range of colours, styles and absorbency levels.

Ready to Make the Switch to Eco-Friendly Period Products?

Are you ready for some eco-friendly period awesome in your life? Congratulations! You’ll be joining an enlightened group of people who are excited that there is a better way to do periods. You’ll save thousands of dollars, produce a lot less plastic waste, and reduce your chemical load.

Small changes really do make a difference. Be part of the change.

Melted candy ornaments

Staying with the edible theme, get the kids involved in making these tasty melted candy ornaments. For this recipe you will need metal cookie cutters, peppermint candies, parchment paper, cookie trays, and ribbon. Onelittleproject.com has an excellent how-to guide for these ornaments and even tells you what not to do when creating them, saving you time and money. Head on over via the link to discover how you can make melted candy ornaments.

Resplendent wrapping

Do away with boring gift wrap and create your own. Buy large pieces of paper and use crayons, felts, and paints to design original pieces of wrapping paper. When your creations are dry, and you have wrapped the presents, finish each gift by wrapping with a ribbon, or raffia, and tying baubles in assorted sizes to the middle of the cross section of ribbon.

Paper snowflakes

These are sure to bring back childhood memories of sitting and cutting out snowflakes with which to decorate your home in the holidays. This used to be a common activity, but now with so many children preferring to play technology-based games, making paper snowflakes is becoming a dying art. Introduce your kids to the pleasures of learning How to Make Paper Snowflakes by following the tutorials on Origamiway.com. This may not be how you used to make snowflakes, but once you learn how, it will be the way you make them from now on!

Mason jar snow globes

So simple to make, these pretty snow globes offer a modern take on a traditional ornament. To make one of these you will need fake snow, pink and white spray paint, a mason jar and lid, a small bottle brush tree, a hot glue gun, and pink ribbon. Start by spray painting the bottle burhs tree pink and leaving it to dry. Once dry, glue the tree to the centre of the bottom of the mason jar lid. Next, pour fake snow into the bottom of the mason jar, about a sixth of the way up. Then, carefully put the lid and tree into the jar and tighten the lid. Once the lid has been tightened, wrap the pink ribbon around the lid and tie into a bow.

 

Have fun making these beautiful gifts and decorations with your family – Happy Holidays!

5 Refreshing Team Building Activities Staff WILL Love

If your staff run for the hills as soon as they hear the phrase ‘team building’, then you know its time to change tack. But rather than ditching the idea, maybe its time for some fresh, new team building activities.

1 Team building cookery courses

In many ways, the idea behind a team building activity is to push boundaries, both personal and as a group, gently ‘forcing’ people to communicate, listen and work out the best way of achieving a goal as a collective group.  When this happens and new skills have been learnt, as well as information about each other, then you can put a big tick in the box that says, ‘successful team building activity’.  Thus, you may think that team building cookery courses are the soft option, where everyone turns up, bakes a scone and leaves.

But consider;

  1. Not everyone can cook and/or bake – so the head of accountants who seems so in control of the books needs guidance on how to boil an egg by the intern in marketing.  
  2. Not all cooker courses are the same – from a competitive restaurant challenge to creating making a dish that no one has ever made before, you will be amazed at just challenging some cookery team building activities can be.

Unlike whitewater rafting and other outdoor activities where you end the day wet, cold and aching, with a cookery course you eat what you cook, together.
