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.

Outdoor Entertaining

There are so many things I love about summer. One of those is a bit of outdoor entertaining. A barbecue with friends. A family get together. Or just eating your lunch in the garden. There are a few things I have found so far this summer that have helped make things that bit more fun.

Today it was just the two of us, but we still love to do the whole entertaining thing

Husb is a keen cyclist. He loves getting out on his bike. He also loves a good bit of tech. The Coros LINX Bluetooth enabled smart helmet is now officially his new favourite toy. He loves it.

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.

A Day Out at Diggerland

Whilst we were on holiday with Verdant Leisure at their stunning Heather View Leisure Park in County Durham a couple of weeks ago we had some lovely days out. I’m going to try to write about them all over the coming weeks, but today I wanted to share our trip to Diggerland.

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.

Our Verdant Leisure Holiday at Heather View

We are not long back from the most fabulous holiday with Verdant Leisure. We spent Half Term week in County Durham, at the beautiful Heather View Leisure Park which is only a walk away from the town of Stanhope.

After a long journey the play area was a welcome find

It’s a long old drive from Norfolk to County Durham. Long! L handled it like a trooper though. It’s fair to say when we arrived at Heather View he was eager to get out of the car. Our lodge was quite ready for us when arrived so we took the chance to have a little wander around the site.

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

My Hilary Devey Collection Mattress – Review

I have had my new Hilary Devey Collection Mattress for nearly two months now. It’s initial schedule of flipping and turning is almost complete. So I think now is the time to tell you all about it. The big question is, do I still love it as much as did when it first arrived?

Summer with Sylvanian Families Seaside Ice Cream Shop

In the middle of this heat wave it is nice having a way we can enjoy the summertime indoors, when it has got too hot to play. I’m also happy to have some back up for when it’s raining. The Sylvanian Families Seaside Ice Cream Shop is the perfect way to do that.
