I love a good subscription box, they are one of may favourite things. A box full of surprises through your door, what’s not to love? I also love crafting, I enjoy little projects that I can make quickly as I don’t have much time for my own crafting nowadays. Surprise Box Club has combined these two things so I was very excited to get to review a box.
When I was a child I loved my LEGO. It was the prized toy. With so many possibilities and it has certainly notched up a gear since I last played with it. When LEGO asked if we wanted to review some of their newest kits I of course leapt at the chance.
First I shall share with you one of the most tragic moments of my young life.
I was given the LEGO Pirate Ship for Christmas one year. It was amazing, huge, with rigging delicate rigging, cannons that fired little LEGO cannonballs, it even had a parrot. It was the best.
I often chat about my lovely cat James, he has been my baby for longer than my actual baby, my centre of fluffy calm when I was in a bad place and my comfort whenever I have been sick.

These happen to be few and far between though. In fact there is only one that is guaranteed to work. Continue reading Colouring to Keep my Toddler Happy

How do I explain to my son why his he can go to some of Great Grandparents houses, but he has to visit one in a care home? How do I explain to him that a care home is not a hospital or the doctors, despite the similarities? How do I explain why his Great Nanny gets confused, or angry, or cries, or says things that upset daddy?
For an adult these things are overwhelming and for us there are many other health issues that need to be taken into account, not just the dementia, that hit hard and fast and appeared almost like a side affect to a fall but never left. Continue reading Explaining Dementia
