I always enjoy working with Hotel Chocolat and their range is a natural place to look for Mother’s Day gifts. So I’m very pleased to be able to run this Mother’s Day competition with them.
Hotel Chocolat aren’t just about chocolate of the eating variety, they also have a wonderful range of beauty products containing prime ingredients like cocoa to look after your skin. I’ve picked out this hand cream to give away to a 92three30 reader. Mothers’ hands have a tendancy to get dried out because they end up getting wet so often. So this is a chance to give those hands a little pampering.

Recently H was set his first school project with a homework element. Previous projects had all taken place pretty much at school. They’d been studying Florence Nightingale in class for weeks and now they had to produce a project. There were various arty, crafty suggestions on the teacher’s list, but we steered H away from those because we’d have to help him and it’s not something we are very good at doing.
H decided to make a poster with some key facts about Florence Nightingale. I’m not sure he learnt anything new about Florence Nightingale (to be honest they’d rather done that to death at school), but he learnt a lot about using the computer. Mr 92three30 is a bit of a Powerpoint whizz, so H got to experience the ins and outs of creating slides. Learning to copy and paste was a useful skill too (it seems they hadn’t covered this off at school – I wonder why?). Copying and pasting the name Florence Nightingale alone saved H plenty of typing time.
I’m very proud of what he’s done: there’s a picture and a map embedded into the poster; he’s created a timeline of events in Florence’s life; there’s a simple family tree and H has picked out some of his favourite facts to go into a fact box.
So last Saturday was exceptionally busy for H. First he went to his best friend’s birthday party at a local soft play centre. Parties are a bit thin on the ground this year, so it was nice to get a chance to chat to the other parents from H’s class. H loved it and at the end of two hours he was very red in the face from having run around so much. As soon as the party was over we were in the car taking him to another birthday bash. This time it was a birthday treat for another good friend of his. I got to spend some time at home while H enjoyed his first lasertag session. I think he found it a little overwhelming: he said he got lost, but he seems very keen to go again.
Later in the week we went round to the same friend’s house for tea and pancakes. H enjoyed getting a chance to play with the birthday boy’s newly acquired Lego Chima. There was much building and playing fun.
The theme for this week’s walks to school has been scooter fun. H is currently reviewing one of the Yvolution Scooter range and I’ll be posting that up soon. We’ve certainly been getting to school a lot faster, but we don’t get to talk as much as I am usually left behind. It’s been nice that the weather has been a bit warmer and drier the last week or two, plus the mornings are lighter, so scooting to school is a lot more fun.
I’ve been spending a lot of time at my desk this week doing lots of behind the scenes stuff. Both 92three30 and A Little Luxury For Me have now moved to a new hosting company. It was a fairly smooth process, but it was still pretty nerve-wracking. My furry companions were here though to keep me company, except for the times when they were sunning themselves in the conservatory.
