Quality time with my daughter – Claire’s Date Night


Mummy, you’ve got dirt on your face! – Miss J

While everyone is getting loved up for Valentine’s Day, Claire’s got in touch and asked me if I wanted to celebrate a little differently having an evening in with my daughter. How could I refuse?

I really like nothing better than grabbing a blanket and cuddling up on the sofa with the kids. So last night, this is what Miss J and I did…

Chocolate face pack that makes you look ridiculous? Check…


Chocolates? Check…


Despicable Me 2 in the DVD player? Check…


Cuddly hot owl thing and more chocolate? Check…


Lights off, blanket on, social media off, two hours of quality time. Check. Check. Check. Check.

Verdict? A happy, cuddly, snuggly evening. The chocolate mask has floral tones so Miss J wasn’t tempted to taste it (phew) and my skin felt incredibly smooth after I washed it off. We loved watching Despicable Me 2 again (see my review), and we really enjoyed staying cosy with the warm, calming, lavender scented owl. A real treat.

I’m now planning a similar night with JD – you can never have enough quality time! Why not take advantage of all the offers around over Valentine’s as an excuse for some snuggly time with your little ones?

Disclosure: Claire’s sent us the owl, face packs and some other goodies to make this night possible.

    I have to say at coming on way to old to really love it – I adore Despicable Me 2 has to be one of my favourite films of last year. I love that cuddly owl as well – I think I might have to pop out an treat myself to one as I’m running cold a lot. x
