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 …

My New YouTube Channel – Vlogging

When I started my blog in 2013, I began vlogging. I’d basically read out whatever I had put in a post and it was all a little pathetic. I’ve recently been following and subscribing to a few YouTube channels as I’ve found them and have been really enjoying it all. I’ve started to film a lot of my reviews. Showing …

“We created our first Friday Movie Night!”

There’s an enormous community that comes with being a blogger. I spend a lot of time reading other blogs via the Bloglovin’ app. I tend to follow parent bloggers because I can really relate to them. It also gives me an insight to how other people live or parent and I’m guilty of comparing. Then Molly at A Mother’s Always …

“We are booked to see Disney On Ice 100 Years Of Magic at the O2”

Ice skating holds a very special place in my heart. Before I had P1 I used to attend lessons and was pretty good.

Then there’s Disney, who doesn’t love Disney films with all their magic and touching storylines with fantastic …

Milkshake starts at 6am every morning and is only on until 9am but houses some pretty awesome childhood favourites for me, like Mr Men, Thomas The Tank Engine and Fireman Sam to name a few.

Rockabilly Kids Toothbrush Review

Both my girls are obsessed with toothbrushes. I’ve never had an issue with trying to get them to clean their teeth and I feel quite lucky about that.

11/31: My 5 Favourite Movies

I used to watch films all the time but as my family grows there’s less and less of the uninterrupted moments. I love most films but when I really think about it these five come up first: 1) Twilight Saga. All of them. I think it’s the only movie series where all movies are just as good as the first! …

“I’m annoyed with both soaps for exactly the same reason!! The way they portray teenage/young mums”

I watch Hollyoaks and EastEnders religiously – thank goodness for Sky+!! I tend to get really emotional about certain storylines. I’ve posted my anger towards Hollyoaks’ teenage pregnancy storyline before, the Sinead one. I was actually quite pleased that she didn’t get the baby adopted blah blah. Anyway, I’m annoyed with both soaps for exactly the same reason!! The way …

Happy 1st Birthday Princess 2

I blinked and a whole year whizzed past. Yup, P2 is a whole year, 12 months, 365 days, 52 weeks old. I know it’s crazy!! I apologise in advance. It’s a long one and a cuppa tea and biscuit may be needed… If you’re not too squeamish that it. I realised that last year I failed to write my labour …
