Come & Spend a Day with Us! #NoDullDays

Fancy spending a whole day with my four little ones and I? To celebrate the launch of Bassetts Vitamins’ 3-6 Multivitamins +Vitamin D & Calcium, the lovely peeps at Bassetts asked us to share our adventures with you, from our morning multivitamin to bedtime. Are you ready to spend the day with us?

Just like any other day during the holidays, our morning started slowly, with snuggles on the sofa, a bit of TV and a big bowl of porridge.

Come and spend a say with us, you know you want to! We'll show you what adventures we get up together, from lazy mornings to jumping in puddles to cooking.

Some of us are a lot more perky than others in the morning. Jumpy always wakes up quite early, in a cheerful mood. She just gets herself dressed and entertains herself until the rest of the house emerges from a deep slumber.

As for my early riser (we’re talking dawn with Wriggly, if not earlier), as long as she gets a bit of Paw Patrol, she’s OK.

Until caffeine has made its way through my foggy brain, I simply cannot function in the morning. It goes a bit like this every morning for me: alarm (times 23) – teeth – shower – coffee & breakfast – hello world!

After breakfast, the older two had a bit of a Minecraft session as I was doing the little ones’ hair, then we all had our multivitamins before we left for a day of adventure.

We went to one of our favourite places of all time rain or shine: the Aquadrome. The plan was to walk around the artificial lake, feed the ducks and swans some oats and go to the play park for an hour or so.

It started raining as we stepped outside (typical!). We always take wellies and raincoats when we’re out and about in autumn so we were not overly bothered.

When we got there and met with our friends, I couldn’t resist the sweet temptation of a latte and veggie full English breakfast (the café is fab there!).

Wriggly had the time of her life jumping in puddles and she made a lot of passers-by laugh a lot. They were probably mostly nervous this feral little creature would start throwing mud at them, but they were laughing all the same!

By the end of her ‘puddle jumping’ session, her boots were completely soaked, her clothes covered in mud (underwear included) and she had mud splattered all over her face. I laughed so much I could feel my abs (I know, crazy, huh?).

Towards the end of our leisurely walk, we spotted canal boats and Loraine told me about her childhood holidays on one. It was just lovely.

When we got home, the children turned Google Home on and I plugged in the disco lights Jumpy received for her birthday so they could all have a bit of a disco, then off to the shower Wriggly went.

Jumpy and I baked cupcakes for her wheat challenge in hospital the following day. I then cooked chorizo pasta for dinner with Wriggly.

Teeth, story and sleep for my four (after lots of chatter, laughter and mess)

As always, I stayed up late but I didn’t work. Instead, I gave myself a little facial. There’s nothing like a bit of pampering before bed!


A few important things to consider:

•Calcium & Vitamin D are important for children’s development and are essential for bone growth and development in children. They also help with muscle function, healthy teeth and bones.

•According to Public Health England, everyone needs an average daily intake of 10 micrograms of vitamin D (10µg), to protect their bone and muscle health. Much of this comes from sunlight during the spring and summer, so Department of Health experts now recommend that during autumn and winter, everyone should consider taking a daily supplement containing 10 micrograms of Vitamin D.

•Bassetts Vitamins launched 3-6 Multivitamins +Vitamin D & Calcium to help parents ensure their children meet this benchmark.It’s got all the benefits of a standard multivitamin, with added Vitamin D and Calcium in a yummy Peach & Apricot flavour. It’s also made with natural flavours and colours and no added sugar.

•RRP £5.50 for pack of 30 pastilles

    An amazing video! How funny after all these years you now wake up speaking English!! Who knew that would happen, I guess that happens after so many years here!
    How delightful that they all live taking their vitamins so well! I think it is because they look and taste like sweets!

      They really do. I have a soft spot for the strawberry vitamins myself (they’re meant for ages 3-6, he he!). You’re right: I do speak English in the morning now!!
