BBC Countryfile Live 2018 – Our Photo Diary

I’m still in a sort of bubbly come down from attending BBC Countryfile Live at the beginning of August. The atmosphere and buzz was just incredible. We spent Thursday and Friday in the beautiful grounds of Blenheim Palace in Oxford. It was our first experience of a proper festival. I’m going to be honest and say that I don’t think …

A Memory Game With Orchard Toys

It’s no secret. We love a game. I’ve even had to clear out a junk cupboard to make way for the slowly growing collection. One of our favourite game brands has definitely got to be Orchard Toys. We recently received the game One Dog, Ten Frogs. It is a giant floor memory game suitable for ages 3 years and above. …

Easter Hunt At Monkey Haven – IOW 2018

Following on from a busy day at Tapnell Farm, I expected to have a nice peaceful nights sleep but it sadly wasn’t. Both P2 and P3 were very unsettled from about 3am onwards. The Easter Bunny didn’t have a chance to bring his treats to the girls so I cracked on with the breakfast. When the girls went back to …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Hating On The Snow This Weekend

On Friday we experienced a short lived snippet of what the spring and summer will look like for my family. It was warm enough to sit outside with no coats on. Yet this weekend we have been graced with more snow. Usually I’d be jumping for joy about the white flakes falling from the sky. Willing it, pleading it to …

Orchard Toys Look and Find Alphabet Jigsaw

As a child I used to love doing puzzles. Don’t judge me for blowing my own trumpet, but I was pretty good! Strangely enough two of my three daughters have followed in my footsteps with not only a love for puzzles but a skill for them too. My eldest has lost a little bit of interest as she’s grown older …

It’s no secret that there’s a new craze for blind bag toys and mini collectable toys. My girls love them but personally I like to know what I’m buying with my money.

Our Easter Saturday At National Trust Bodiam Castle

For somebody who didn’t feel very Easter-y this year, we ended up doing quite a few Easter themed activities. Our Easter holidays were pretty much jam filled with different things for us to do and now we are back to school runs. I feel we need another holiday to recover from the Easter holidays if I’m honest. Our Easter weekend …

Win A Family Ticket To Marsh Farm’s Easter Eggstravaganza 2017

I didn’t realise my love for Easter until we went to Marsh Farm last year for their Easter Egg Hunt. I had decided to stay with my Grandad for the weekend without Hubby and wanted to find somewhere to go. Marsh Farm was a childhood place for me to visit and I really wanted my girls to experience the farm …

I immediately knew that P1 would adore these and so we wrapped them up for her birthday. …

Crayola Doodle Delirium Board Game Review

I have been a fan of Crayola for a very long time. It is my go to brand for drawing and painting material for the kids because quite frankly, they wash off everything! I recently was made aware that Crayola are now producing games and this completely excited me as I’ve been trying to gather a bigger collection of board …

Playbrush Toothbrush Review

As a child, I used to hate brushing my teeth. It was the one part of the day that was pretty tiresome and boring. These days there are so many options to help combat that boredom with many apps, colourful character toothbrushes and reward charts. However, my girls are following my path of finding the whole process a chore. I …

Georgie The Interactive Puppy Review

If you were to ask P2 what pet she’d love to have, her answer will always be “I want a Chihuahua”. Whenever she looked a photos of different dogs it would always be the little chihuahuas that caught her attention and that’s when she learnt the breed and ultimately has fallen in love. We don’t have a garden at the …

Feber Dareway Review – A Mini Segway For Kids

I am going to open this post by saying that my girls are officially spoilt by my blogging life. When I saw the biggest box ever arrive at our door, I knew exactly what it was, the Feber Dareway. The girls saw exactly what it was from the packaging on the side of the box too. It was hard to …

Orchard Toys Once Upon A Time Puzzle Review

I have loved Orchard Toys long before I was a parent myself. Becoming an ambassador for them this year has sort of been a bit of a life goal I suppose. I feel quite passionate about them and I know this is beginning to sound like I may need therapy. But it’s all true and thankfully my girls are sharing …
