#LightTheArch With EE

In September 2013, ICT (Information and Communications Technology) was replaced by Computing. When I was at school our ICT lessons were all about creating Word Documents or painting a picture using Paint. But now children as young as 5 are being taught at such a more complicated level. At just Key Stage 1, they will learn to do things like …

Do You Really Need A TV License?

I think the simple answer to this question depends on your watching habits. For us, we have absolutely no reason to have a TV license. I remember a time when just by owning a TV meant you were legally required to purchase a TV license. But those days are long gone. The rules are, if you watch live tv or …

British Red Cross Has First Aid #RappedUp

As a parent there are so many roles that you have to play. Peace maker, chef, maid, friend, teacher plus so so many more but the absolutely most important one is that you have to play nurse. I have played that role plenty of times with my three daughters. P1 is accident prone, she was born early and her problems …

My Top 5 Dream Home Gadgets

With technology improving by the day and things heading towards pure laziness there are so many things I’d love to have in my home. Unfortunately, nobody has invented a tumble dryer that automatically folds clothes after they are dry so I’ll have to settle for some things a little more realistic for now. Our house is quite small so the …

FirstBIKE Racing Red Balance Bike Review

I was so excited about P1 getting her first ever push bike. She was ecstatic too. My Grandad took her to choose but with her hypermobility and lack of strength in her legs, riding a bike has been a slow process. At 6 years old she still uses stabilisers and lacks in confidence to the point she sometimes cries when …

Nuna LEAF Review

As a new mum you soon realise that the amazing little human you created is a time consuming little monster that is permanently attached to your hip. You’re told to rest and leave the housework for another day. I remember being told that this time round, my third, and laughing inside. I’m not leaving the housework because I’ve chosen to …

A Day Out with Three Mobile & A Samsung Galaxy S6 Review

I am without a doubt loyal to my iPhone. After all I have had an iPhone for the past six years and with Hubby also owning an iPhone and being able to message each other for free is just one of the reasons I haven’t changed. But when Samsung released a much bigger phone to the iPhone a few years …

Babymoov Changing Bag Launch #MyBagMyStyle

I always feel so nervous when I travel to London even when I have Hubby there to guide and protect me. Yesterday was no different despite my excitement.

Celebrating His 25th Birthday & Easter with Balloon Time

A few months ago we were asked to be part of the Celebration Club for Balloon Time. The time scaled fitted perfectly with my hubby’s 25th birthday so naturally I thought this was a great excuse to throw a party for him. Hubby does so much for us as a family and I really wanted to show him just how …

GateKeeper (GK-Chain) Review

My hubby turned 25 yesterday. I always struggle to buy for him and always end up feeling super guilty when I just can’t think of anything. He knows me so well and always gets really thoughtful gifts! I do know that he is heavily interested in his computer, so much so it takes up the whole counter in our kitchen, …

10 Ways to Entertain Kids on a Road Trip

P1 has always been really good on car journeys, she’d fall asleep pretty instantly or she sits quietly listening to the radio and singing. However, P2 is growing completely differently and I miss the easy journeys we used to have. P2 gets very agitated and bored being in the car for a long amount of time. Party Bags & Supplies …

A Day In The Life of a Mummy Blogger

Blogging most certainly takes over your life. It’s actually become part of the family. I get quite proud and emotional about it if I’m honest. My little space on the Internet has grown so amazingly in just two years. The things we’ve had the chance to experience, like days out and new products, makes life so much easier at times. …

Stabilo EASYoriginal Pen and EASYergo Pencil Review

P1 has been receiving Early Literacy Support at school. I was a bit sceptical about it all at first, I wasn’t sure that it would help and to be honest I hadn’t noticed a problem with her writing or literacy. I thought she was doing well. I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to try out a special pen and pencil …
