Well this has flown by and I am very much not ready for Christmas. I’ve forgotten the elves more days than I haven’t, I still have gifts to buy and generally feel ill prepared and anxious. With that in mind I’ve pulled together a bit of inspiration for you all, hopefully you’ll find it useful.Continue reading Christmas Gift Guide 2021
L was recently sent an amazing box, filled with lots of little wrapped up presents and a book. The excitement was palpable. But what caused all this excitement? A delivery from The Reading Adventure Club, that’s what.Continue reading Giving the gift of Reading
With last year being as rubbish as it was when it came to festive celebrations and general joy, we were super excited to visit the entirely Covid Safe experience offered by Silverstone and the amazing Lap of Lights. It surpassed all expectations and we had the best time. This year with everything looking a bit cheerier and restrictions not being as harsh we were delighted to go back and see what was on offer for 2021.Continue reading Silverstone Lap of Lights 2021
I love Christmas. I love decorating the house. I love the warm fuzzy feeling I get seeing other peoples decorations or meandering around garden centres to look at their amazing displays.

It’s never too early to start preparing for Christmas in my mind.Continue reading Christmas Tree Topper from Avoalre
L was recently sent an amazing box filled with some high kicking, punch throwing, moving battle figures. The Akedo Arcade Warriors may be mini but their battle actions take you to next level intensity!
The World of Akedo – Ultimate Arcade Warriors deliver all the extreme moves of arcade fighting but there are no computers in sight. You are in charge of these little fighters and the real battling action is super fun and certainly ramped up the excitement in our house.Continue reading AKEDO – ULTIMATE ARCADE WARRIORS
Teeth are brushed, pyjamas are on and stories read. I’ve just finished tucking a very happy and rather excitable child into bed after our wondrous trip to Norwich Theatre Royal to watch A Circus Carol.
A Circus Carol is part of A Right Royal Christmas running a Norwich Theatre Royal from 16th December to 24th December and it is so good to see the Theatre back up and running, especially with such a great programme.Continue reading A Circus Carol
Last week we headed off to Silverstone to check out their most fabulous Christmas event, LAPland. It was brilliant. The lights, the atmosphere, the set up. Just getting to have be on such an iconic track in our car was amazing. It’s definitely worth a visit.
Last week I left work a few minutes early so I could get home and fill the car with snacks, blankets and a small picnic dinner. I picked L up from school and as soon as we got back home, Christmas jumpers were donned and we got straight into the car and started our journey to Silverstone, we were on the road by 3.30pm which I thought was quite an impressive turnaround!Continue reading Getting Festive at Silverstone with LAPland
When it comes to Christmas there is really only the one plant that comes to mind, the beautiful, deep red, star shaped Poinsettia. I love this classic plant and it’s wonderful leaves and often have them in the house over December. What I didn’t realise is that they actually come in huge variety of colours. This fabulous news means that whatever your chosen festive scheme you can find the Poinsettia for you.
Stars for Europe are the leading group of Poinsettia growers and have some wonderful information on keeping your blooms looking at their best.Continue reading Win a Festive Poinsettia Bouquet
