Going To The Google Offices & Getting A Google Home

During the Easter holidays Hubby and I had three full nights child free. The girls headed back to Essex with their Grandparents and it was a much needed break for us. During that time we did so many lovely things. We mainly visited National Trust places and ate out in McDonalds and Zizzi. Our adventures can be found on my …

Learning Times Tables With Maths Rockx

One of the subjects I always struggled with at school was Maths. I have no idea what it is about the entire subject but it just never stayed in my brain. I even attended out of school help sessions to try and improve my mathematical ability but even that didn’t help. When P1 started school I was quite concerned that …

Learning More About McDonald’s Restaurants

I have many memories of McDonald’s. My Grandad used to take me for a lunch when we went to visit my Great-Grandad. My Mum frequently took me as a treat after my swimming lessons. I used to pop by with school friends. I headed there for my work lunches too sometimes. My Hubby also shares a love for McDonald’s but …

It’s been about a month since I posted a My Sunday Photo. Life has been so incredibly busy and I’ve felt a bit guilty for not actually posting because that was the whole point of taking part. But with not having a car, feeling utterly exhausted for the majority of every day, I just had no motivation to sit and …

#WhatsYourX – Sony Xperia X Mobile Phone Review

I remember a time when for me, my mobile phone was my statement accessory. During secondary school if you still had a block like phone when the latest one was a flip, then you were classed as a bit of a weirdo. I don’t know what secondary school life is like nowadays but for me personally, I’m not overly bothered …

New Sky Kids App – A Visit To Sky Studios At The O2

I still remember being around 7 or 8 years old and being completely dazzled by the Millennium Dome. My mum had arranged for us to visit at some point during the year when the Millennium Experience was there. I’ve only been there once more since and that was a rushed visit so when I was invited to return, I just …

#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 …

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 …

Annabel Karmel Family Cooking App Launch at KidZania London

Going anywhere as a family of 5 is really scary. I have to check, double check and then debate the journey first because quite frankly trains can get pretty stressful when you are outnumbered by children and in confined conditions. But when I was contacted to attend the launch of Annabel Karmel’s new Family Cooking App I just had 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 …

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, …
