Washing our family laundry with Persil Non-Bio and Comfort Pure Fabric Conditioner always brings back precious memories to me of both being pregnant and enjoying that cherished newborn time with each of my four children.

As soon as I found out I was pregnant I started buying white bodysuits, sleepsuits, hooded towels, mittens and booties.

I would wash each item carefully with the above products as I knew they were specially made to be kind to sensitive skin.

I would then hang them out on the line and put them in a special "baby draw".  Every day I would open up that drawer and breathe in the gorgeous scent.  I would lay the clothes out on my bed and try to imagine that there would soon be a real baby wearing them.  I could never quite believe it!

My hospital and baby bag all smelt lovely and everything from our flannels to dressing gowns as soft as they could be.  

I soon found out that even with all the clothes and baby equipment ready nothing can really prepare you for how you will feel after you have had a baby.  I remember the overwhelming feeling of love and the natural instinct to protect my child.  Danny was a very poorly baby and spent a long time in hospital.  I am so grateful that with the help of Special Care Baby units and very skilled surgeons I still have my boy.  

Naturally I worried a little bit more during my subsequent pregnancies, so I realise the importance of charities like Tommy's  who fund research into miscarriage, premature birth and still birth.  When my niece was born premature the information we were given from Tommy's was really useful and reassuring.

As my babies have grown older they have still appreciated soft, scented clothes next to their skin, fluffy towels after their bath and snuggly blankets to cosy up in especially as we move into the Autumn and Winter months.

Now our own family is complete, I love washing all the old baby clothes, bundling it up and passing it on to friends and families starting their own families.  I find the Persil Non-Bio keeps the clothes fresh and clean, while the Comfort softens and conditions them making them gentle enough for a baby.

Asda are currently selling Persil Non-Bio 25w and Comfort Pure 42w in a special Better Together Pack and will donate £100,000 to Tommy's to support their research.  I think it's great that a brand many new mums use and love are donating to such a worthwhile charity.


We found both our products in the Laundry Aisle.

Comfort Pure was a little bit further up the Aisle in the Fabric Conditioners section.  Look out for a special display in your local store to buy both products together.

We still use Persil Non Bio and Comfort Pure to wash our clothes, the clothes are just bigger now and we have lots more school uniforms and sports kits to wash!  It's still important to me that I am doing the best to look after my children's skin and keeping them happy, which makes me happy.

A Climb, a Walk and a Swing down Hazelbeach #CountryKids

Hazelbeach, Pembrokeshire, Wales, walk, coastal path, beach, country kids

After a morning at Withybush Woods, Dave wasn't ready to go home yet and suggested we go for a walk along Hazelbeach.  We came here recently when Danny was taking part in a Regatta but  we only stayed on the main beach.

Dave insists that we have done this walk before but I really can't remember it!  I think he must have brought his "other secret family" here and got mixed up!  The benefits of blogging are I will not forget about our recent visit!

Straight out of the car and the kids were climbing a tree!  Next to the carpark are toilets and a pub, The Ferry House Inn, very convenient!

I think Dave was determined to wear the kids (and me!) out by taking us on an uphill walk.

The main path along the walk is nice and safe with lovely coastal views.  We spotted a few rabbits along the way, much to the kids delight.

After a busy morning and a couple of hills Danny needed a rest so hitched a ride in Izzy's buggy.

There are plenty of benches to stop and rest or put your shoes back on too!

She put her shoe back on and it still wasn't comfortable so Danny helped her.

It looked lovely out on the waterway.

Danny, Izzy and I were really far behind the others and the pushchair!  Danny tried to give Izzy a piggy back to speed her up.

He was still too tired however and kept needing rest stops.

So I had to do piggy back duties and catch up with the rest of the crew.

What are they looking up at?

Wind turbines!

On the way to the beach we spotted a rope bridge, a perfect way to get the kids off the beach when it's time to go!

At last we were on the beach for a play (everyone) and a rest (for me!).

Dave and the kids had fun going through a tunnel from the top path onto the beach.

Pebble Shaker Hazelbeach, Pembrokeshire, Wales, walk, coastal path, beach, country kids

I finished my water bottle and Izzy started to fill it with pebbles to make a shaker.

Time to make music with her pebble shaker!

I was treated to lots of delights from the Shell Cafe, cups of tea, soup, cakes.  Lovely, thanks kids!

No one has spotted me about to climb up these rocks...

We had fun on the rope swing (ok I screamed to get off as soon as I could hear the branch creaking!).

Then time to walk home.  As most of the way there had seemed to be uphill, I expected most of the way back to be downhill, but no, there was still a fair bit of uphill!

Poor tired children having a rest again!


Sloe gin Hazelbeach, Pembrokeshire, Wales, walk, coastal path, beach, country kids

There are also plenty of blackberries and sloes to pick on this walk.   I normally just pass on sloes but may pick some next time and make Sloe Gin.  I have no idea if I will like it or not but it could be fun!
