With the summer holidays looming, or even already started in some parts of the UK, you might be lucky enough to have a holiday booked and some travelling planned. For us tech has become a great way on occupying L on long journeys but we don’t want to be disturbing other people or listening to whatever random YouTube video he’s either so good headphones are a must. We’ve been trying out the JLAB JBuddies Studio volume wireless headphones.Continue reading JLAB JBuddies
After what seems like the longest winter ever and the never ending stop, start, stop, start spring I’m ready for some better weather. I am ready for summer. The only downside can be getting to sleep in the heat, and whilst as an adult I can make do in most situations my boy finds it really hard. That is why we are looking forward to trying out our new cooling blanket from Luxear.
With a GPS tracker for vehicles of all shapes and sizes and even for people combined with an easy to use app PAJ GPS offer an excellent solution for so many tracking needs.
Want to keep track of your car, truck, work vehicle or fleet then a tracker is the best way to do that.

Lex Match is a new crazy cube game where you are looking for a five letter word. Any word will do, you’ve just got to make it. It’s simple, fun and deceptively fiendish. It has been a fabulous addition to games night in our house.
Be the first to line up five letters to spell out a word by pushing out your opponents’ cubes and inserting new ones to disrupt their words and form your own. Make words horizontally, vertically and diagonally, and use the LEX cubes, which can stand for any letter you like. If your opponent makes a word that uses a letter on one of your cards, you steal their points! See what I mean about fiendish.Continue reading Lex Match Review and Giveaway
I love a jumper. It’s the best bit about the cold weather but I often struggle with finding a nice warm jumper that I can wear comfortably under a coat. Something warm yet thin, soft and definitely not scratchy. If it looks good that’s also a bonus!
Recently the guys at Lands’ End asked if I’d like to try one of their cashmere jumpers out, it was an easy decision to say yes but a lot harder to actually choose which one I wanted to go for, they are all so nice. Classic designs that are perfect for me and a stunning choice of colours and patterns.
Just before the start of the October Half Term we were sent a bundle of Oaka Books Topic packs. I was allowed to select a handful of packs to try at home with L. Helping to make learning fun, easy and engaging they were just what we needed.
Hoopsy is a new brand of eco pregnancy test, they make midstream eco pregnancy tests made of 99% paper – so they’re much kinder to the planet than the average test.
Now I am not in need of pregnancy tests, nor will I be in the future but I do remember taking them. Lots of them! Even when I was actively trying to get pregnant I remember feeling how wasteful the tests were, caked in plastic and not remotely recyclable, I actually moved to the little dip strips but it’s fair to say they are not quite as nice to use. Having looked at the tests Hoopsy have sent me these are actually an excellent alternative.Continue reading Hoopsy
On Saturday we kicked of half term with a bang by attending the opening night of Fire on The Water: Beach Edition in Great Yarmouth. We didn’t visit last year so we were ready for a surprise and my gosh it is a spectacle.
We started the night in Embar, a lovely tented area with comfy sofas and little tables where you can go to enjoy a drink and a snack. It was lovely to listen to the opening speeches and just sense the excitement of all those who had put in so much hard work and were about to see the fruits of their labour. After the opening celebrations had finished the three of us headed out to see all that Fire on the Water had to offer.Continue reading Fire on the Water: Beach Edition – Review
I hope it’s not too early to start writing about Christmas, because I’m about to! I love Christmas, I love the lights, I love the food, I love the feelings it brings and I love decorating. Each year try to get something new, something extra, just slipping a bit more into the house without the husband really noticing! This year I’ve gone for a new Avoalre Light Up Christmas Wreath.
