Continuing with my regular post includes anything that is making us happy – and hopefully you – even though it’s a Monday.

It will be anything from what we’re doing or planning to what we’re eating, watching or reading. Items I’m lusting after or buying to anything else that inspires to make Mondays – and the rest of the week if need be – just a little more bearable.

Step forward #mamamondays 




EATING

This weekend we were invited to Cafe Rouge – a chain of restaurants serving classic French meals and snacks – to try out the ‘menu pour les infants’ – or to Miss Marnie and and the rest of us the new kids menu.

We headed out in the rain – but were greeted by a lovely warm and cosy atmosphere at Cafe Rouge. We were drawn to the red sofa seating area, so plonked ourselves there and had a very laid back early Sunday supper.

I have to say I haven’t been into a Cafe Rouge for a little while – for no other reason than there isn’t one that near to us. So, I had no idea what the kids menu offered – or more importantly if it was any good! The idea is for little ones to get there ‘five a day the Cafe Rouge way’ – with a little code to signal which ones include those all important fruit and veggies.

Miss Marnie loved the folded menu-come-activity sheet – we even practised a little french. She was very taken with the ‘magic pencil’ – remember those fab stacking pencils from the eighties?

Well,  what can I say?  We were pleasantly surprised by the offering. The service was a bit relaxed – but we were in no rush and it was quite nice not being constantly asked if everything was ok throughout the meal.

But, mainly I was impressed by the value for money. The mini menu price tag of £6.95 includes a starter (bread, crudités and a tomato dip), a main course (from a choice of 7), a pudding (5 to choose from) and a drink. For me including a drink in a ids menu is a big factor – as that can really rack up the cost of a toddlers/kids meal when eating out. And, refills were just 75p.

Would we go to Cafe Rouge again? OUI…



BATHING

Lately I have been finding most of Miss M’s bathing products a little harsh for her skin. Some have been a little drying and some has brought her out in a bumpy rash.

So, we were really pleased to try out some Love Soap products – if you’ve not heard of Love Soap it a small family run business that hand blends it’s children products in its soap workshop in Suffolk.

Full of organic ingredients and pure essential oils – I wasn’t in the least worried about trying this. The gentle formula, lovely scent and abundant bubbles were an instant winner and Miss M’s skin seems to really have calmed a little too.

In fact the subtle yet lingering scent of the lavender & meadowfoam wash we’ve been sampling is so yummy I *may* have been using it on myself.

And, I can’t not mention the gorgeous packaging! I am a sucker for beautiful bottles – these will defo be hanging around on the ‘bathroom display’ shelf.

GOING

I’m on Camp Bestival countdown – we’re heading to the biggest family festival of the year at the end of the week. And, I feel super dis-organised.

I am normally so organised for a holiday/getaway – but I’m feeling out of my depth with a camping-come-festival as you can read here.

I will, though be compiling some essential packing lists this week – because even if I don’t know what I’m going to wear/do/take right this minute – I’m hoping they may help get my head in gear by Friday!

Any advice or tips will be accepted….
