I'm not sure I tell you often enough how splendid you are! You are so noisy and interested in everything, that I find myself constantly telling you to be quiet or not 'ferret about in that cupboard', and I forget to tell you how much you amaze me each day!
Yesterday you made me cry, not by being horrid, but by giving me something so precious that my heart literally melted in the same way it did when I very first held you. This is going to sound ridiculous, but it was a hand written note, addressed to Mum, Dad, E and Cat saying you loved us very much, and it made me tears stream down my cheeks!
You had sat up the corner on your own and carefully crafted this note, you glowed as you carefully handed it over and then disappeared behind a cushion to watch my reaction as I opened it. I think you suspected I may criticise your spelling, and this is why you watched my reaction from behind that cushion? I confess I sometimes forget you are only 4..and your teacher often reminds me to always praise your writing even if it is 'wrong'.. but this note? It was perfect.
Boo you make me so proud, and I'll try not to tell you to 'shhh' too much from now on! xx

I was contacted at the end of last year by the lovely people at Eco Force and Dishmatic, to see if I would be interested in trying out their products and offering a great competition to my readers!
I like to do my bit to protect the environment and in particular we make sure we recycle as much as we can, the boys are already experts at sorting what can be recycled! So, I was very excited to try out some cleaning products made from recycled products! It has been a great way to explain to Boo more about the importance of recycling as he can see what something might be turned into when it is recycled!
So, importantly you want to know how good the EcoForce equipment is at cleaning? The kitchen scourers are fabulous, they really do make light work of cleaning greasy pans! The multi-purpose clothes are strong and absorbent, we have already stocked up on these as they're a new favourite! The pegs and peg basket are strong and cleverly designed so the peg basket will hang off the line easily! Hanging your washing outside on a line is both environmentally and economically friendly too, why pay to dry your clothes when they dry on a line outside for free! We already hang our washing out on the line, but have to confess our line was recycled from an old length of electrical wire, so we were delighted with our new one from EcoForce!
Without doubt, our favourite item is the Dishmatic, fill it with your usual washing up liquid and it makes light work of the washing up! The scourer head can be replaced, which makes it more environmentally friendly and we have found we use less washing up liquid to get the same gleaming results we did before!
EcoForce are available from a variety of retailers including Oxfam, Asda, Waitrose, B&Q for a full list of retailers see here.
So, do you fancy winning a selection for yourself comprising of:
