“By Allaah, this world in comparison to the hereafter is nothing but as though one of you dipped his finger in the sea. So ponder how much (of sea water), the finger returns with.”

Ponder over the above.

If you are Muslim, I’m sure you can contemplate a bit deeper as you feel a connection with the one who said it (peace and blessings be upon him).

I love aayaat and ahaadeeth which re-enforce the “traveller in this world” attitude. They do so much for me. They make me grateful for what I have, for it is a lot! They remind me life is short; grudges aren’t worth holding, and life is tough but that hardship is worth it.

After the birth of M i discovered my local council give a voucher towards reusable nappies when you spend over £45. If your interested in buying reusable nappies the upfront cost can seem expensive but well worth it, its also worth seeing if your council have any incentive schemes.

These are the nappies & wraps i purchased after a chat with Wendy @ the nappy lady , the nappies are so soft 🙂

I used my voucher at HeyBaby, Poundbury, Dorchester

Jackson reece baby wipes

We have been using jackson reece baby wipes for years now and i HIGHLY recommend them, we have tried and tested different brands of eco wipes including NATY & waitrose (they are so dry you might as well use toilet roll to wipe their bum).

They sell scented (they are only scented using aloe vera & organic essential oils) & unscented. We prefer scented as they smell so nice and because we found that the unscented ones were dryer than the scented packs.

Jackson reece wipes are organic and moist, i could go on and on about them but you can find all information including ingredients & stockists here
