It’s a familiar scene; you fall in the door laden with school bags, coats, drink bottles, packed lunch boxes, the wet swim kit and trip over the pile of shoes that have been abandoned in the hall. more “Little Cook Boxes – a parent’s midweek saviour”
Over the years our girls have come to believe that we as a family are toy testers – with them of course having the chief role. We were recently asked to check out some Minnie Mouse Fashion Dolls, to see how the girls enjoyed them, and lovers of all things Disney, we were more than happy to oblige. more “Minnie Mouse Fashion Dolls review”
“You’ll regret it when you’re grown up”. The words my Mum used when I’d begged and begged her to stop my piano lessons, which seemed to go on my entire childhood, yet never once saw me achieve a single grade, and had me in tears, hiding in the kitchen from the two hundred year old guy who came to our house to teach my brother and I each week. more “Raising Musical Children + Book #giveaway”
With just 8 weeks until we take off on a family holiday with friends and all our kids, the countdown is definitely on! It’s always a sure sign you are on that countdown when you start picking up hats, shorts, new beach towels and even the odd toiletry to put aside ‘for holiday’. more “The toddler holiday buggy conundrum solved with @KiddiesKingdom and the Joie Nitro Stroller”
It’s fair to say we have done every Kent based zoo, wildlife park, farm to death over the last six years, so it’s always nice to broaden our zoo day horizons. We were contacted by Drusillas Park a few weeks back and invited to come to their press day to see what East Sussex’s Drusillas has to offer families looking for an adventure packed day out. more “Drusillas Park Review; The perfect family zoo day”
It was exactly a year ago yesterday that I published a review post on our brand new king sized Leesa Sleep Mattress. The post did everything it should have in explaining the ordering and postal system, unpackaging process and first impressions of our brand new mattress, including those all important first nights of incredibly comfy sleep that a new mattress brings. more “Leesa Sleep Mattress Review, One year on”
Fathers Day this year falls on Sunday 17th June, just three (ish) weeks away. These things always have a habit of creeping up on me, and with four Dads to think about (Dad Muddling Through, My Dad, Step-Dad and Father in Law), last minute panic buys often end up in a bottle of booze and a plant. It’d be nice to think that I might actually manage to pull something out of the bag a little more pre-empted one of these Father’s Days. more “Fathers Day with Frederick Thomas A £100 #giveaway plus £10 voucher code @FredThomasTies”
You may recall a month or so ago, PetPlan made one little girls dreams come true when they created Tig’s dream pet; Nina the Snow Eagle.
Like any strong sibling rivalry, her little sister wanted in on the action. And, sure that she too could create her dream animal, she set to work on her dream pony, courtesy of Petplan Equine.
It’s crazy to think we are already in the run up to the final term before the end of the current school year, and with school places announced last month for many parents, now is the time to start
panicking about purchasing school uniform, getting ahead of the game and last minute out of stock situations. more “September Ready with @MyNametags Plus #Giveaway”
Since our six year old daughter was tiny, visiting Peppa Pig World has been up there on the list of things we wanted to do. Despite cursing the hours we dozed in bed or on the sofa whilst our early riser would happily watch episode after episode on those bleak pre-6am mornings, there is no denying Peppa Pig has been a big part of our parenting lives. more “A family day out to @PaultonsPark #PeppaPigWorld”
