I’ve posted about Harvey’s Bar & Grill before but the big news is that they’ve now opened one in Bangor! So we went on a lazy Sunday for lunch and it was great! I’ve been to their Llandudno restaurant before and I prefer Bangor – it’s nice, new and has baby changing facilities!
When we arrived there was a slight wait for a table to be cleared so we sat at the bar and had a nosey around the decor. I took some photos and please forgive me that they’re a tiniest bit blurry but when you’re trying to take a photo and have a toddler busy running away, you don’t really get much time to focus!
(I will point out that I added the sparkler effect to hide the faces of other people dining – respecting privacy and all that)
(How awesome is this motorbike dangling from the ceiling?)
(Not sure if anything was kept in it but it’s in keeping with the diner decor)
(One of the corner booths – we can’t sit at these at the moment because of a the need for high chairs)
The staff were lovely and thought our babies were cute – they’re not wrong! The food was amazing! I went for the chargrilled chicken breast served with fries and corn on the cob. I also ordered a side of coleslaw and some garlic butter (for the cob). Hubby went for a burger as usual but to be fair he does enjoy it…..
I would definitely recommend a visit if you’re in the area. Well worth it! You can find more information about them using the links below:
If your baby is anything like mine then trying to keep their socks on is a bloomin’ nightmare! Honestly, as soon as I put Miss Mostyn’s socks on her little feet her little hands work their way down to her toes and pulls them off. I forgive her because everytime she does it she has the biggest (and cutest) smile on her face!
However, forgiveness of the sock pulling ultimately ends up in missing socks. So how do I win this ever constant sock pulling game? With a pair of Sock Ons that’s how!
The concept comes from Kezi a mother of six who made her first pair after her little boy was constantly pulling his socks off – the struggle is real! The Sock Ons are made from a softly woven elastic material to “lock” babies’ socks gently and firmly in place.
Who’d have thought that such a simple idea would solve all my sock woes! They are sold at some major retailers like Mothercare and Toys R Us and at approximately £2.99 a pair they’re a lifesaver!
Kezi has also branched out to Mocc Ons, Dribble Ons and Plod Ons – please have a look at the website for more details on these products. Also have a peek at the Sock Ons Facebook page (or alternatively have a stake over at Twitter!).
What do you think of these little things? Genius or what?!
(This was a collaborative post – I was given the Sock Ons in return for a review. All opinions are my own.)
I mentioned in my previous F1 Wednesday post that I was afraid that I’d lost my interest in Formula 1. With the first two races of the season being pretty boring combined with the fact that I’m not allowed to go to Silverstone this year (thanks Miss Mostyn!) then I was certain that I’d lost the spark and couldn’t get back into it.
Well that changed last weekend! Qualifying reverted back to the normal qualifying i.e. no stupid knockout which meant we had most (if not all) cars on track at the end of Q3! Qualifying saw Hamilton not set a time and Ricciardo qualifying in 2nd! I can’t even remember when a Red Bull qualified in the top three since 2013!
The race itself was pretty action packed from the start. Hamilton started from the back of the grid so this was always going to be good. Vettel and Raikkonen came to blows in the first corner seeing Raikkonen spin (but managed to recover). Ricciardo made the jump on Rosberg before the first corner and was heading off nicely into the distance. A puncture (possibly due to Raikkonen’s debris?) saw him fall back down the field and Rosberg pass him.
I missed the middle of the race as I had to go sort some washing but I caught the end and saw Kvyat take second place! Oh my word that was such a great result for the Red Bulls! Such a shame about Ricciardo’s puncture though. I wonder where he’d have finished otherwise.
Being the mother of two girls I want them to be able to watch cartoons with strong female characters. So far we’ve been watching the usual kids tv shows and I find the female characters to be either boring or irritating (Miss Rabbit anyone!?!).
So I’m really interested in the new DC Super Hero Girls! It’s DC Entertianment’s latest animated series featuring a dynamic group of Super Heroes on their journey of discovering the power of their unique abilities and friendships. The characters are strong, fearless, edgy and fun; there is a character for everyone. In fact there’s a quiz you can take on their site which will tell you which DC Super Hero Girl you are – I’m Wonder Woman!
Why not have a peak at their YouTube channel(I’ll be watching this with Little Miss as it’ll be a welcome change from the random videos she currently watches!)
To celebrate DC Entertainment are giving away a VISA £100 Gift Cards! Enter the giveaway below! Good luck!!
Well people did warn me about the terrible twos and boy they weren’t wrong! Little Miss is now 27 months (or 2 years 3 months – I still count in months because Miss Mostyn is still in months!)
I had my Nain over the weekend before Easter and she got to see the tantrums as well! She was worried that there was something wrong and I informed her that this is apparently normal!
So that particular weekend we’ve had tantrums because….
1) No more crisps – she had a packet of crisps and once it was finished asked for more but when I said that we didn’t have anymore she had a full blown tantrum including flailing arms and kicking legs.
2) No more chocolate – I gave her half of her Easter egg but clearly that wasn’t enough!
3) Waking up – she woke up all smiley but then suddenly we had a tantrum but not entirely sure why!
4) Biscuit barrel being taken away – I had left the biscuit barrel on the sofa overnight and she found it. She proceeded to take two biccies out but didn’t eat them so hubby took the barrel away. BIG mistake!
5) Not playing “si-so” – we’ve bought a new mattress and it’s currently rolled up in the spare room. She was sliding down it playing what she called “si-so” but when I told her that was enough we had another tantrum and the floppy-doll routine!
Oh it’s all fun and games in our house! To be fair, there’s not much hope for her since I’m now 32 and can also have a proper strop!!
Have you had to deal with stroppy toddlers? Any tips?
