The Birthday Week is over and we are exhausted! It was great fun putting together the prize draws and seeing all the entries flood in for each fab prize. EDtot thoroughly enjoyed picking the winners' names out of a box with all the entries.
A big thank you to all the lovely people who donated prizes. If you don't already know them, here's a round up of what they have to offer:
Mothers Inc - onsite childcare whilst you enjoy your pampering experience. Fancy a massage or facial, but can't find childcare for such a short time? Mothers Inc. offers the perfect solution.
SE22 Piano School - your local piano teaching practice with students from ages 3 - 60. The school teaches from beginners to advanced levels in classical, pop, improvisation and jazz piano and holds recitals such as the one offered in the prize draw.
Cheeky C's - the fun, creative and exciting playgroup, which is split into different C's. Take your toddler/baby along to enjoy the construction, camping, creative, cosy, crazy, cooking, concert, costume, curious and concentration corners with a coffee corner for the adults!
Tippee Toes Music - the music and movement classes include action songs, musical instruments, movement props, puppets, colourful laminates, parachute play and oodles of bubbles! They also offer baby massage, soft play, parties and even a mobile creche for those special events.
The Dish and The Spoon - need a coffee, but know your little one won't want to sit still for long enough to allow the caffeine to kick in (for you; not them!)? Head to The Dish and The Spoon cafe and deli in Nunhead serving up Dark Fluid Coffee, cakes and more with the added bonus of a lovely play area to keep the kiddies amused.
Fuzzy and Friends - looking for a class that will fire up their imagination? Try out one that is all about learning through music and make believe. With free-play time before and after the sessions for the adults to catch up over a cuppa.
ShutterBaby - how could you not want that shot of your newborn all curled up on a pile of towels with a pair of angel wings? We left it too late to grab that special newborn pic, but luckily they tend to stay cute for a fair few years and ShutterBaby can help you capture those perfect pics.
Diddi Dance - jealous of the amount of energy your little one has every day? Channel it into improving their rhythm and co-ordination using various dancing games and exercises, bells, hoops and dance ribbons to Diddi Dance's own funky pop songs. They also offer fantastic party fun!
Babistic Baby - enjoy all the benefits that baby yoga can offer in a group session with other mums. Babistic Baby also offers baby massage and maternity reflexology sessions to help relax you and baby.
Bach to Baby - not only do you have the chance to enjoy a concert without hiring a sitter, your little one also has the chance to attend a live classical music performance and chill out to Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms!
Powerpramming - it is hard enough sometimes to get yourself up and out with a newborn let alone find childcare whilst you try to get your fitness back! Powerpramming is the perfect solution as you can bring your little bundle with you whilst you enjoy working out at your own pace.
Captured on the Rye - a home furnishing shop with a cafe area serving delicious coffees, hot and cold beverages and a selection of cakes. Check out the handmade designs that are screenprinted locally. Many lines are organic and Fairtrade cotton.
Thank you to everyone involved. Here's to another fun filled year!
