The Sock Fairy/Gnome Has Struck!

This is a bit of a non-post but I need to rant!!

I’m sure I can’t be the only one who has lots of odd socks..however it’s starting to really really annoy me that I have 3 Disney bags (I have an addiction to buying the reuseable bags whenever I go to the Disney Store) full of odd socks for the kids.

I last binned all the socks I could find in an effort to start again only 2 months ago and Keep reading…

Is It A Beach Or A Park Mummy?

This week we’ve been to soft play, the park, soft play again and then started the requests to go to the beach again..oh dear! Trying to explain to a 3 year old that you don’t have the money to be able to get enough petrol to get to the beach is like trying to extract blood from a stone as my mum would have put it, so I remembered an old place I used to take my nieces when they Keep reading…

Scott went a few times when he was little before Alexa was born and they went for probably a grand total of 30 minutes last year when I managed to get some gorgeous photos of them but they’d Keep reading…

Painting Fun

It’s half term meaning I have my nieces all day this week (they’re away with their Mum and Dad next week – yay!) and that means not just a 2 & 3 year old to entertain but 9 & 10 year olds too.

I’ve let them play with whatever toys they wanted, watch whatever they wanted on tv but the oh so lovely words ‘I’m Bored’ kept erupting from their little mouths. So, on Monday, in a moment of obvious insanity Keep reading…

WOW Toys: Danny's Diving Adventure, The Turbo Twins and Izzy The Race Car – Review & Giveaway

I was recently very lucky and offered the incredible chance to review some WOW Toys and offer a giveaway (more on that at the end!). In this house we absolutely love WOW toys, the kids love them because they’re colourful and fun to play with and I love them especially because they don’t end up being thrust at me by a whiny toddler declaring they need batteries!

I was first introduced to them at Christmas 2012 when I was desperately looking for Keep reading…
