I have to admit I have never been a big Halloween fan, but L loves it so much, his joy over this fun holiday has spread throughout the house.
In the past I would have done nothing other than turn of the lights and pretend I wasn’t home. Maybe when I was a teenager I would have found myself at a Halloween party, but other than shoving a novelty witches hat on my head it would have been no different to any other weekend with my friends.

We go on holiday a lot with the kid, maybe two or three family breaks a year. We’ll camp, boat, caravan, we really don’t care but one thing they have all had in common is they have been self catering in the UK. They have also been work, reviews for this blog. We haven’t had a family holiday in the sun at all since L was born and technically I haven’t had a holiday at all.
Scrummies are a delicious and healthy snack aimed at children. Yummy, scrummy fruit in perfect snacking packaging we received a lovely box of samples to try. In the midst of December indulgences they couldn’t have been better timed, or more gratefully received. We also had some Clearly Scrumptious adult snacks too, but L wasn’t fussed by that distinction and claimed everything for himself.
L does genuinely enjoy his bedtime. So we are very lucky. I get that. I’m not going to turn down extra help when we get it though. So when Illumi-Mate asked L if he would like some Minion lights for his room he was super excited.
I hope some of you managed to join us for the #SuperWingsSummer Twitter party yesterday. It was a lot of fun. We have really enjoyed our summer playing with Jett and the rest of his Super Wings Friends.
When we got asked to review the new Peppa Pig’s Family Home set I straight away said yes. L loves Peppa and has recently really got into games where he gets to be the character and play out little scenarios with his toys.
We are celebrating the new Mickey and the Roadster Racers and Minnie Happy Helpers toy ranges that are available to buy. L has been busy trying some of the toys out and we are getting ready for what is shaping up to be an epic Twitter party.
L adores his train set. It’s a lovely wooden one, so fits BRIO and loads of other brands. We have added to it over time and it’s getting pretty massive but when we were offered the chance of review the BRIO Police Station we jumped at the chance.
The BRIO Police station fits all the BRIO train and road sets. It has a roadway section the attaches to it and a rail section that runs along the side, there’s no where for the bad guys to escape to!!
It comes with a policeman and a bad guy as well as a police that has flashing lights and a siren. L literally loves it. Continue reading BRIO Police Station – Review→
A couple of weeks ago now I was invited to the new Hochanda studios for a behind the scenes tour and a master class crafting session with one of their presenters.
In case you’re not familiar with Hochanda, it is a TV Channel dedicated to selling crafting products. I can’t think of a craft material you can’t get from them, it’s very inclusive, which I love. So if your passion is needle craft or woodwork, or anything in between, you will be catered for. Plus because it is a TV shopping channel you get to watch these great shows demonstrating the products, filled with inspiration and handy tips.
