Oh hello my lovelies! If you are still with me after such a long break then thank you so much!  I haven't posted since the beginning of October when I wrote about Learning to drive with Dyspraxia.  Since that last post life has thrown a few curve balls at me and mine, and I just had to take a step back. Amongst the hard times though there have been some smiles,  I had the eldest child's birthday (a rather cool Halloween themed party with spooky graveyard cake made by yours truly (you can see this on my Instagram if you are that way inclined!) and university started back, but Miss Organized here missed the start date! did that even happen?? I had a heck of a time catching up - a week is a long time in study land when your brain feels like it has turned to mush! During these maniacal months that I have been away, I have seized with both hands anything that could save me time even if it is just a few moments - those few moments have been the moments I could breathe...and we all know how important that is!

One thing which takes more time than it really ought to is cleaning the high chair after the toddler has eaten - can anyone really make that much mess??? (OK, maybe I can...I may occasionally wear my dinner down my front...but lets not go there today? yeah? Thanks!)

When I came to buy the high chair for baby number two I was hit by pangs of nostalgia - with my eldest (15 whole years ago!) I bought a Chicco Highchair - I decided that is what we were getting again for this new baby ....time definitely smooths out the wrinkles (well for my memory, shame it can't do the same for my eyes!)...I forgot how awful it was to clean! Argh! Really nice sturdy high chair which can be used at the table as well as stand alone but by god, the crevices that food can manage to find itself in!

So, when the lovely Helen from allowed me the chance to try one of their dutch oilcloth high chair covers I jumped at the chance!

The cover arrived beautifully wrapped with instructions for fitting and and a lovely note from Helen - who doesn't love recieving a nice package in the mail?!

The high chair cover fits beautifully over the high chair, over the drop down arms and over the gaping gaps between the sides of the chair and the cushion (where my just turned three year old manages nearly every time to get half her dinner!).

I opted for the pale grey with white stars - quite neutral and fits well in my kitchen and when we decorate will still go well I am sure! The high chair was looking a bit sad and worse for wear (not damaged, just old, maybe I had been staring at it for too long!) the Messy-Me high chair cover really lifted it and no more faffing about trying to get the high chair clean - you just fold all flaps in and lift off the chair - et voila! One clean chair again.  To clean the high chair cover it is as simple as wiping down with a cloth or you can wash on cold rinse cycle in your washing machine. I have done this a few times and the cover looks great still.

Definitely a winner in my book!

PR sample - I was sent the high chair cover in return for a fair and honest review of the product.
