Fun with a Half Shell Hero

L has never watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles so I wasn’t sure what he’d think of his Half Shell Hero Mutant Loader Vehicle complete with Mikey when it arrived for us to review.

Simply put he loves it.

Feeling Calm #57

For my birthday last year I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

Hasn’t the weather been amazing?! We’ve been enjoying a lot of outdoors time and doesn’t it make a difference. Garden play is always an easy option for me, but when you don’t even have to worry about warmth and can literally just open the door and shove the child outside it’s even better.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

This Plus That Equals…. Little Memories

This plus that equals…. little memories

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about the little every day things that are actually really special and I want to remember.

Not big things, nothing special or momentous. Just the everyday things, so little, so commonplace, even mundane. The things that actually make us, us. The things I don’t want to forget.

Tonka Tinys Review

Teeny tiny Tonka Trucks. Well L was always going to love these but I’ll admit I had my doubts, I mean they are really small, so how much would he get from them? Well quite a lot it turns out.

Win a kids game and puzzle bundle from Jumbo Games

I’m a bit of a closet puzzler, I’ll admit it. I love a good jigsaw puzzle and recently L has been getting more and more into it which is just lovely, so I was really happy to get a lovely delivery of puzzles and games from Jumbo.

Better yet they have also got a great bundle of kids games and puzzles for one of my lucky readers to win.  Continue reading Win a kids game and puzzle bundle from Jumbo Games

Chalkola Reveiw & Competition

I love a bit of chalkboard fun with L and I have to write-up a lot of advertising chalkboards for work so when the guys behind Chalkola got in touch about their kids safe, brightly coloured and neatly sized chalkboard markers I was eager to give them a go.

Feeling Calm #56

For my birthday last year I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

These last 7 days have been engulfed with illness. I’m still not at my finest but everyone else seems back to normal. Thanks to a vile sickness bug L bought home from Nursery I don’t think I’ve had a full night sleep since last Wednesday!

There aren’t many pictures from these last few days, and nothing much exciting has happened but regardless here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

Boy this has been a tough weekend, little man and I have been ill. There’s been a lot going on, but I can’t help being grateful we were sick this weekend and not last when my sister was getting married.
