Buddhify – Review

You may remember I recently wrote about some fitness apps that I loved, but that I had some reservations about my meditation app, Calm, as they had removed a lot of my favourite meditations and the subscription fee was just too high. Well just after I wrote that, buddhify got in touch to see if I would like to review their app.

Remember life without eBay?

With eBay increasing its fees all the time, I’ve been looking for other ways to sell my surplus items, and at the same time feel a little more involved in my community. If you’re looking for ways to get rid of all the baby things you’ve acquired, or just lusting after a more minimalistic household, try these techniques to avoid fees and squeeze in some much-needed socialising.

Who doesn’t need a puzzle over Christmas? Something fun to do for yourself, a gift for family or a way to keep the kids quiet for a little while.

Phonics School Cartoon & Workbook

Recently L’s words have been coming on leaps and bounds. It’s a momentum I want to continue, but I want it to be fun and I want to know I’m doing it right, in a way that will help him at nursery and eventually school. Clearly at his age there’s not much out there, just flash cards and toddler books. So I was really pleased to be contacted by Phonics SchoolContinue reading Phonics School Cartoon & Workbook

You’ve all seen the adverts with our favourite Meerkats, Aleksandr and Sergei all dressed up ready to see Batman v Superman, well to celebrate I’ve been sent a limited edition Aleksandr as Batman toy from Compare the Market.

He is super cute and we love the costume so we had a bit of Meerkat fun ourselves, check out his little adventure. It’d very silly but it made us all very happy! Continue reading Meerkat Movies Fun

The Beatrix Potter Collection

It’s fair to say that when we went away over Easter the weather wasn’t the best, but our beautiful holiday cottage came complete with a DVD player and I was well prepared having packed The Beatrix Potter Collection on DVD.

The Beatrix Potter Collection

2016 marks 150 years since the birth of Beatrix Potter, one of the world’s best-loved children’s authors, certainly one of my favourite authors. I probably shouldn’t admit this but when we visited the Lake District many years ago and I got to visit her farm, the lovely Hilltop, now owned by The National Trust, it was one of the best moments of my life.  Continue reading The Beatrix Potter Collection

The World Now

I don’t normally write about anything vaguely political, I don’t pretend to have the knowledge required. In fact I still don’t even know if I should publish this.

This week, with the terror attacks in Brussels, so soon after those in Paris, the world is becoming a worse place. People are becoming less tolerant than they were before, which scares me and shocks me at the same time. People also seem to be becoming numb to these horrific things. Continue reading The World Now

The BLOK iPad Case from Logitech – Review

Is one of the most expensive things you own also your toddlers favourite play thing? That’s certainly the case in our house, thanks to YouTube and a nice man, Blippi, who sings about tractors and fire engines L loves the iPad. IMG_20160222_090653

In all fairness he’s pretty good with it, he knows to be careful and he knows he can only have it when we say, but he also knows exactly where it’s kept and will often run and grab it and ask to use it.

He will fall, he will drop it and he will use it harder than we would like. That’s life.  And as you will see from the pictures of him after the case was arrived, if the small child is this excited about a new case, you can only imagine what he’s like with the iPad!
