Three in a Box - 320/365

Take one big box (the bigger the better), add three children, lots of blankets, cushions, teddies and dollies. Mix together and let the fun begin. 


Zoey & Upsy Daisy - 319/365

Zoey definitely has a whole lot of love for Upsy Daisy.

Mummy's Shoes - 318/365

Zoey's been at it again, stealing my boots and refusing to take them off. It does make me laugh how determined she is to walk about in them. 

Squish - 317/365

I love when the twins nap together, even if it only lasts 10 minutes, it is so sweet to see them cuddled up together.

Reindeer Rocket Fuel in a Big Cup Little Cup Way

I don't know what it is or why, but this year we are starting to feel really Christmassy very early in our family. A special delivery of two boxes of Reindeer Rocket from Big Cup Little Cup and some gorgeous double walled coffee tumblers helped to kick start the festive feeling last weekend. Even one of our special Christmas teddies, Rudolph, had to make an early appearance as a result.



Reindeer Rocket

Reindeer Rocket is full-bodied limited edition seasonal blend of Nespresso compatible which definitely packs a punch at a strength of 9, just what you need to get you ready and through the busy holiday season. It is made from Arabica beans from Southern Brazil and Central America and Southern Indian Robusta beans which create a powerful and bold coffee with flavours of dark chocolate and chestnut that lingers with a sweet smoky finish. Big Cup Little Cup is the online sister brand of CafePod and pride themselves in creating limited edition and small batch artisan coffees - take a look here for a review I did last year.

Taste Test

For those of you familiar with my blog you will know how much I love my Nespresso machine and my coffee as does my husband so we were looking forward to putting this blend to the test. I love it and Chris agrees. It is the kind of coffee that lingers, it's strong, very tasty and great in a little cup Espresso or big cup Lungo. It would go perfect with a ginger cookie on the side so I think I'll have to get my Christmas cookie cutters out early and start baking.

The coffee tumblers are perfect for making some special Christmas coffees too, I'm thinking of trying Reindeer Rocket with a dash of Tia Maria, squirty cream and chocolate sprinkles so will be sure to share the results when I do.

Special Discount

Readers of my blog are in for a special treat as the nice people at Big Cup Little Cup have given me a special discount code which will get you 15% off your first order. Just head to www.bigcuplittlecup.com and use the code MUMMYS15. You will also find a fantastic Christmas range which would make excellent gifts for the coffee lovers in your life including Selection packs of different capsules, syrups and fantastic coffee tumblers like the ones we were sent.


So what are you waiting for? Go get your special Reindeer Rocket fuel in time for Christmas, I promise you won't be disappointed.
