Has it Got Wheels? Toys from Jazwares

L is a very lucky little boy. He doesn’t realise the extent of this. He looks forward to the postman  arriving and he will ask the same three questions.  ‘Is there a parcel today?’ ‘Is it a present for me?’ ‘Has it got wheels mummy?’ Usually I have to say I don’t know, but when I saw the box from Jazwares arrive I was safely able to answer yes to all three.

The #PrezzoLaFamiglia Challenge

We eat out as a family quite a lot. It is enjoyable and often a nice break during a long day out. We have taken L with us to restaurants since pretty much the moment he was bored but there are definitely some things that make the experience better than others. Prezzo have recently launched some great family sharing dishes and we went to check them out as part of the #PrezzoLaFamiglia Challenge with BritMums.

Fantastic Father’s Day Gifts from intu Chapelfield

Still need to get your Dad a gift for Sunday. I’m here to prove that it’s easy. On Monday L and I headed into Norwich and went to intu Chapelfield, we walked away with bags full of great gifts.

We had been set a challenge. Prove that you can get great gifts for less than £50.00. No socks allowed. Have fun. We could get one big gift, or lots of little ones, that was up to us. We had a £50 intu voucher to spend, which can be used at all the shops inside intu Chapelfield apart from the food and drink outlets.

Aquabeads Review

We recently received an Aquabeads New Beginners Studio. I was really looking forward to this, it struck me as an easier version of the beads I used to have to get my mum to iron for me when I was a kid. I didn’t know how L would get on with them though.  Continue reading Aquabeads Review

The Benefits of Travelling

I have never travelled in the sense of going on off on some great adventure all by myself. I’ve gone on holidays. But always with someone. I’ve seen a lot of places and had amazing experiences. The idea of travelling, really travelling, I find quite a stressful thought. But what are the benefits of travelling?
