There’s been a bit of a lapse in my excitement levels at Easter for many years now (mostly due to the fact journalists have to work over the long weekend – the news doesn’t stop, people!)
It’s brilliant when you’re a kid and do Easter egg hunts. But once you’re old enough to buy choccy when you please it’s not quite as thrilling.
But fast-forward a few years and I’m on maternity leave, Millie is 19 months and full of wonder and I’m getting ready for a happy Easter. The thrill is back!
Mess. Lots of it.
It’s just the way it is at meal times with a toddler.
Millie’s at a stage where she no longer lets me shovel food into her mouth but instead wants to have her own utensils to do it herself. But there’s a small problem… she can’t quite do it herself. But she’ll get there.
So we’ve given some of the Closer to Nature products a whirl and it’s making things a lot easier for both Millie (19 months) and I.
They’re the fans I’d admired in stores, imagining where I’d strategically place this functional, almost arty (and often necessary) home appliance.
The Dyson Cool fan’s minimalist appearance doesn’t really give the impression it can huff and puff until you’ve cooled down.
It’s almost too pretty – all style and no substance?
