Sharing Memories with

Once upon a time in a not so far off place, there was a larger than average family with a Father, a Mother and 5 adorable children. They use to love spending time together and going on lots of new and fun adventures.

With each new trip, the family would create many of greatly adored memories but due to the family’s very busy and hectic life they never have much time to sit down and reminisce about all the fun adventures they had been on together.

The mother tried so very hard to make sure the children remembered. So she placed photo’s all around her home and created cute little photo books that told the stories of their past. But as the number of her children increased and the older children grew the photographs changed and the photo books became ripped or faded.

The thought of not having anything to show and share with her children made the mother’s heartbreak. That was until she found BagsofLove. It was here that the mother was able to find loads of exciting and different products that contained her photo’s and memories. Best of all she was able to share these things with her family.

There were pillows, pictures, cups, mats and mugs but the mother didn’t want something for herself she wanted something the family could all use. After searching the site for a few more minutes she found a beautiful blanket that she could print a collage of her family and the adventures they had been on. Straight away she knew would be perfect. They could snuggle together under the blanket on cold days, spend story time wrapped up the soft fabric that was covered with their smiling faces and it would be there to make them feel better when they were ill.

Next, she had the funniest but the hardest part of the process, she had to design and choose which images she wanted on the family blanket. The hours whizzed by as she chose her photos while tweaking and changing her design to something that she loved.

And so with a few simple clicks on her laptop the Mother had ordered this fantastic blanket. It arrived within days and was beautifully wrapped. As soon as the mother felt the soft fabric of fleece blanket, she knew that this was just what she wanted. The quality and finish of the prints photos on the fabric was unbelievable, not a single memory was blurred or distorted.

It was then that the Mother knew she had got the best gift for her family to share together and that this blanket was going to be a source of love, comfort and security, as well as reminding her family of all the amazing things they have seen and done together.

Our Picnic in the Park Play date with #MagicSquaresPlaydates

Everybody loves a good play date. The kids enjoy the fun of being able to spend time with their friends. While the mother are thankful they have a fellow adult to talk to, instead of having to the same conversation with the 3 year olds about who is better Peppa Pig or Doc Mcstuffins. (Clearly it’s Doc Mcstuffins!)

Normally it’s the girls that have a lot of play dates while their brothers are in school and we tend to do:

  • A afternoon/day at the local softplay


  • Coffee and playing at friends or my house

But every now and again we like to mix things up and do something a little different.

Specially when the weather is in our favour and it’s a beautiful, sunny day that is begging for us to go outside to explore and play. Making it one of those days you know will be magical because you will create  memories that last a lifetime.

It was the day we went to the park for a picnic.  

I know what your thinking that’s really simple, but sometimes the simplest moments are the most amazing because your not distracted by everything else.

So for us a picnic in the shade of the blossom tree as the glorious sun blazed over head, was prefect!

We made it special by making fun shaped sandwiches, eating fruit and enjoying some Petits Filous Magic Squares yogurts. Unfortunately I forgot to pack the spoons for the yogurts and we had to eat them with our fingers or drink them from the tub.

It just ended up adding to the delicious fun. 

We all loved the the 2 different flavours of yogurt in one pot and we laughed at the shapes the yogurt left on our faces as we drank from the pot and had fun  by adding dots to our noses. The kids enjoyed every second and gobbled up their lunches in record time.

Before scurrying off to enjoy the fun and play in the playground. 

As you can tell we all had lots of fun and I know it will be a day that will stay vivid in my memories for a long while, because it was so relaxing, magical and peaceful. It was just the prefect.
