Travel: A weekend in the Lake District with Sally’s Cottages

I really needed last weekend after a stressful few weeks; comfortable surroundings to relax in, stunning scenery to enjoy and a group of lovely people to spend time with. Also, no kids! I spent the weekend with eight lovely ladies, many who I knew well and a couple of people I’d not met before – but by the end of the weekend, a few gins and some revealing ‘never have I ever’ games I think…

Scrapbook Loves – September 2018

A very quick ‘Little Loves’ post from me as I am running out of time to get everything done before I go away in a couple of days! I didn’t want to miss Septembers update out completely though as I love looking back on them! Read I read the seven books below this month, a bit of a variety of genres and themes though!

Me and Mine in September ’18

Okay, I know it’s not September anymore, in fact it hasn’t been for a week now but I’ve been busy and a ‘Me and Mine’ post slipped my mind, and in fact slipped my mind throughout the month as we were so busy- this phone snap is the only complete family photo we managed to capture! Sam has been busy teaching people to drive, I have been busy getting on top of my workload after…

Family Games Night with Little Tikes Crazy games

We had our first proper family games night at the weekend, and it was so much fun! Arlo at three and a half isn’t quoite old enough for games with too many rules or games where you have to wait a long time between turns – he simply gets too impatient! Little Tikes sent us a family games night box with two perfect games in, both are fast paced, fun and really interactive! We stuck…

Toys: Kekilou Collectable Dolls

Athena is definitely a stereotypical ‘girly girl’ and although she loves to play trains and cars with her brother and will climb on any tree or wall she sees, she really really loves the colour pink, wants to wear makeup and loves a frilly dress. It was for that reason that knew she would love the Kekilou range of toys, and when a box full of them arrived and her little face broke into the…

Review: Hopster TV, the kids app that does it all!

For the last few months and especially over the Summer holidays when the kids had quite a lot of a tablet time in order for me to keep up with my workload we’ve been using Hopster TV on their kindle fires.
