Following in footsteps

This is my 15 month old son turning his hand to his granddads Tabla, he loves it.  
It's the first thing he goes to when arriving at his grandparents house, he will tap away at it and then look around the room smiling for some praise. 

He's so lucky as his grandad is a very talented musician so Kavan has lots of exposure and access to music & instruments.

My baby's Rave.

Hi all, I finally got the pictures from my sons first birthday! They are fab, we're lucky as it was a family friend who just so happens to be a photographer.

I'm actually wanting to let you all know what we, 'did' for his party. My friend Faye is the proud creator of, Baby Rave'. An innovative musical interaction experience for kids or better known as playgroups! 
Faye got the idea when she took her son to a playgroup and realized, is this it? What she has come up with is amazing. Every Rave is always a sell out and has just recently featured on Calender News! 
Each Rave is a themed musical active session with singing, instruments and dancing. 

From the Baby Raves then came the idea of doing Pick and mix birthday parties with the stuff she had for raves! So we went with a Baby Rave party. 

It was amazing,we all sat together in a circle, singing songs with shakers and actions, bubbles and disco lights then Peppa & George Pig dropped by. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all his friends too. It was different but so much fun.

Christmas 🎉

Good evening bloggers, I have to say I am now so exited for Christmas ever since the adverts started, funny isn't it that the media contributes to your emotions towards a holiday. Don't get me wrong I really do get a warm fuzzy feeling when the Christmas music comes on and you sell all the snow & lights :)

It makes me feel magical if that is such a feeling?

However it does make me wonder would we be as exited if there were no such things as adverts?

Home cooking ❤️

I recently went back to work on a part time basis but it might as well be full time, I always feel so rushed to get everything done from when I get home in the afternoon right up until bedtime, so home cooking has not been top of my list which I really dislike as I love home cooking, not only does it taste better, it makes me feel better inside.

I tried out this recipie for Kavan on Friday using a few left over veg and some cream cheese and I am pleased to say he loved it! He made, Mmmmm sounds as a signal for more.

Here is the recipie:

Put on to boil a portion of pasta or more if required, bring to the boil and add in peas and a few brocolli trees, bring to the boil and simmer until cooked.

Sautee 1 small onion or leek
Add 1 small courgette grated with a knob of butter and leave to go soft
Once soft add a handful of spinach and wilt, add half a tub of cream cheese and stir until melted.
Add the drained pasta, broccoli and peas, stir and serve :)

Christmas shopping 🎅

I went off to do some Christmas shopping today at Mothercare as I'd already reserved some items in store.

Busy and crowded is not the word! Because the ELC have a huge sale on, the store looks like it's been looted. Random toys every where, stressed out mums trying to find toys with the best value for money and the poor dads, left to entertain the screaming children. 

Despite all this chaos I did manage to spot a few bargains of my own..... Paint! And lots of it. 

I've bought lots of lovely different coloured paints in ready for a big Christmas Art Project!

Bagging a bargain.


I just had to share this amazing bargain I found today! We are going to London for a wedding so I decided to buy Kavan a backpack for the journey.

I checked out a few shops online and Mothercare had a George Pig one that was a good size so that was my choice. Off I went to Mothercare to find not only was I lucky enough to get the last one but that it had been reduced to £5! I couldn't believe my luck.

Kavan uses it to drool on because hes trying to kiss George.

Don't you just love it when you bag a real bargain? It put me in a good mood for the whole day, a bit extreme maybe but its the little things I suppose :)

A bit about us.

Hi bloggers :)

My name is Mina and live in Leeds with my 1 year old son and husband. 

I got the idea for the title my mums shoes from thinking one day when I was looking at a pair of my work heels thinking, wow I've had these years. 
It got me thinking about all the different places and situations I had worn these shoes, and so was born the blog in my mums shoes :)
