The Pawsome Box A subscription box for dogs!! Unboxing * Review

Last month I posted about Pawsome boxes & this month we have one to review. 

As you can see Molly was exceptionally excited.
There are so many beauty / food subscription services out there now, it was only time before we saw a monthly subscription box for pets. Cats & dogs. 
Animalbox is the Europes market leader in pet boxes and they've now launched the Pawsome Box for the dogs & the Purrfect Box for the cats. 

Each month you will receive 5-6 products for your pet. It's no surprise the pet subscription boxes are a huge hit with families spending just as much money on their perfect pet as they do there children. 

You can choose to have a monthly, 6 monthly or annual subscription, When you go to sign up  you fill in your profile & include the size, breed & all the other preferences for your loved pet.
Obviously by filling in all the important criteria will help the animal box team to create the most perfect box for your pet.

The subscription starts for just £19.90 when choosing the monthly subscription.
You are then guaranteed to receive products with a value much higher than your subscription fee. 

Each monthly box has a theme you can see here the summer, football, BBQ box themes.

I was so excited when the animal box team contacted me to ask if i'd like to receive a PawsomeBox to review for Molly she's almost 7 ( i can't believe it only feels like yesterday I picked her up & got her home, she was terribly car sick poor thing) She loves a good bone to chew up. 
When the blue box arrived Molly knew it was for her she was so excited. 

Enjoying her bone.

Each box is made with love by pawsomebox
With never having a pet box like this before I really didn't know what to expect. I knew Molly would receive 5-6 items, I was so delightfully surprised by the quality of each item. We also received a magazine 'Paw notes' this included perfect Travel information, protecting your dog from the sun this summer, & how to prepare the perfect ice cream for your dogs.

I love the rubber chicken in the egg Karlie Squeaky Egg (so does my two children & Molly )

Molly's favourite of it all the Delights pro dental chicken & minerals inside.

DIY Sharpie design your own mugs

All you need :

mugs - 90p from Tesco... 
Sharpies Colours & Blacks.
An Oven.

This simple. 

Do your design then cook for 40 minutes on 150 degrees or gas mark 2.

with sharpies you can rub out the design if your not happy....
Or even get your children to do their own design like the mug.

I love what Emilyn managed to do on the mug...

Perfect presents for friends & family. 

Put your own stamp on the perfect mug. 

I would only ever hand wash your mugs. 
Don't risk losing the colour from them in the dishwasher.... 

Why don't you give it a try...

She wants to go back to Pre-School

As if life is just that simple. She has decided Primary School just isn't for her.

She didn't want to get out of bed this morning
Nor did she want breakfast
Or to get dressed.
Let alone brush her teeth
Have her hair done, wear her glasses.
Then she 'hurt' her leg to the point that she couldn't walk on it.

She didn't want to go to school.
It's heartbreaking to hear.

As I've been her sole carer for the past 5 years her going to Primary School is actually a pretty big deal to me too.

We had tears all the way to school. She refused to get out of the car. I gave her a cuddle & carried her all the way to school, I got her to tell me what was wrong.
The reason she wants to go back to Pre-school is because they don't stay for lunch. She enjoys the lunch provided at school for her however she dislikes having to put her hand up once she's finished.
Then after lunch all the children get to play in the playground together (the whole school) yes daunting for a teeny tiny newbie. The reception class can stay in the little playground. However I feel E's friends probably want to play in the big playground so I totally understand her predicament.

I agreed to talk to her teacher about E's concerns, when I did I was then told yes E had been rather distressed every lunch time for the past few days. Heartbroken that my baby, my first baby has been crying at school wanting me, anxiety must of caught up with her.

Today I'm sat here typing away knowing that in the next few minutes E will be confronted with the big playground. I can't want for home time to come so I can collect her & hear about her day.

I never thought Primary school would be so hard on both of us, I thought she was doing so well.
To of found out this morning how unhappy she's been & she hadn't told me, she had put on a big brave face to try keep me from worrying makes me even sadder for her.

I'm sure she will be ok soon. I hope so anyway...

They've been exhausted
