Back To School With Moj Moj

I’m still playing catch up from all of the adventures we had during the summer holidays. It seemed to zoom past. Before I knew it I was waving goodbye to a Year 5 and a Year 1 at school. As you go up through school things get harder, obviously, and this year is quite important for P1. Things up the …

Creative Fun With Hama Beads & Giveaway

“Mummy can we do an activity?” Are the words that come out of my darling middle daughters mouth every single day. We once had a pretty extensive crafting/activity cupboard around Christmas time but with P2’s relentless requests that supply has gone down rapidly. We are working with DKL over the next few months to showcase some of their amazing toy …

Revamping The McDonald’s Happy Meal

I am definitely not ashamed to admit that my family love a McDonald’s. We don’t go often but I think it’s a great treat for the girls and have always loved the food. I was lucky enough to work with McDonald’s to go behind the scenes in one of their restaurants, hear about future plans (one of which happened to …

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. …

It’s always a little bit exciting when you get invited to a Num Noms UK Party in London and that’s exactly where we headed during half term last week. It was a party to celebrate the launch of series 5 Num Noms in the UK. We caught a train, it was the first train after rush hour time so we …

Siblings 2018 – May

We have been able to get outside this month, with temperatures reaching nearly 30 degrees. We’ve focused on getting the garden ready for our girls and we are nearly at a state where we are comfortable with it. Having our new Dunster House climbing frame has allowed the girls to bond so much. Mainly P2 and P3 have been out …

Unboxing Cute New Disney Emoji Toys

The worst thing about our chickenpox experience with P2 was the boredom and cabin fever. I was extremely grateful to have received a brilliant box of Disney Emoji goodies on what was actually our worst day that week. You can watch the girls open all of the goodies in the video I created: We had been sent five of the Disney …

L.O.L Surprise Pearl Surprise Review

I’m back again with another L.O.L Surprise review. Since the last one which was our first ever experience of this new and exciting craze, we were bought a few of the pet versions by my Mum. That was an exciting day! Well now we’ve been sent this huge L.O.L Surprise Pearl Surprise ball. We only had one which caused a …

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 …

Our First L.O.L Surprise Confetti Pop Review

Somehow we’ve managed to steer clear of the craze that is hitting little girls across the world. The L.O.L Dolls. I remember there being huge hype over the large edition ones that cost loads of money and it sort of put me off because I didn’t know enough. Then we were sent three of the L.O.L Surprise Confetti Pop balls to open …

Num Noms Inspired Easter Hunt

It’s Easter weekend! Happy Easter. Our lead up to Easter has been a little pants due to illnesses, snow and a busy daily life. I did manage to grab some Easter treats from Poundland recently but I do tend to steer away from chocolate if I’m honest. This year I wanted to do something totally different. We decided to have …

Little Tikes Fun Zone Drop Zone Review

I completely appreciate that we’ve just come out of a pretty frozen spell of snowy weather. That it’s still floating around the 5-8degree mark most days. On Friday temperatures hit a whopping 12degrees and there wasn’t a chance in hell that I’d not take full advantage of the sunshine and put together our new Little Tikes Fun Zone Drop Zone …

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 …

World Book Day 2018

It’s World Book Day. A yearly event that celebrates books and reading. I am a huge lover of a good book, especially children’s books now that I am a parent. I love the excitement every evening when we settle down for a our bedtime story. Sadly, the snowy weather has postponed the school celebration of World Book Day but that …
