Word Of The Week – 30/01/15

This week my word is…

Scott and Alexa have both been unwell this week and when they’re sick they seem to step up the volume by a level or two! I’ve been ill too but I seem to take the opposite approach to them, it makes me crave silence as I just want to rest and sleep.

Being sick leads to moaning, crying, whining and of course the ‘need’ to have Peppa Pig, Thomas, Masha and various random YouTube videos on full Keep reading…

H&A Bathtime Buddies Squirting Ducks Review

I’ve told you all previously about how much Scott and Alexa absolutely love bath time, and that Alexa would happily splash and play in water all day long if only I’d let her….well there’s one thing that both children hate about bath time and that’s getting their hair washed! Once their hair is wet all over its not too bad, but getting to that stage can often sound like I’m trying to murder them or something – they will grow out of this, Keep reading…

Word Of The Week – 23/01/15

This week my word is…

Last Sunday I went off to Tesco to get a few essentials to keep us going for a few more days and in the less than 60 seconds it took for me to pay, my daughter went missing.

I looked for Scott who was at the end of the checkout messing about with something on the floor, asked him where Alexa was and he said he didn’t know. It was the start of the longest 10 Keep reading…

How To 'Get Rid Of A Cat' According To A 4yr Old!

We have a cat who’s rather old now and who, along with any other cat, Alexa is allergic to.
The consultant at the hospital says she’s probably ok with him as she’s been around him since birth but that if she were to go away for a few weeks and then come back she would no doubt have a huge reaction. The problem with this now is that each day for the last few months she’s been starting to have a Keep reading…

Word Of The Week – 16/01/15

This week my word is…

I’ve had a shit week, and when I say that I mean really really shit!

In general I’ve just not been feeling well and moving and walking has been really hurting thanks to my back problem really playing up. I’ve been living on my painkillers all week and counting down the hours till I could pop another pill.

Then the lovely Jobcentre people decided to sanction me for not going to an appointment in December, which would be acceptable Keep reading…

Great Explorations Wonder Stars Review

When I was a teenager (many centuries ago!) I decided I HAD to have a dark blue bedroom, with dark blue ceiling and then to top it off I HAD to have glow in the dark stars on the ceiling too! My mum wasn’t too impressed and neither was my sister who I was sharing my room with at the time …this may have been a contributing factor to her hurrying up and moving out!

It looked great and I loved Keep reading…
