WHODUNNIT? Everything you need to know about #CrimeSceneLive at The Natural History Museum @NHM_London

Like any set of tired parents, Dad Muddling Through and I relish the occasional grown up night out, free from the wants and needs of our gorgeous, but somewhat demanding daughters. One of our favourite occasional nights out these days is a curry and escape room – a fun night out which is less about getting mortal and hitting the clubs, but brings a giggle and a bit of action (pardon the pun) around our evening. I guess nights out look a little different these days, and it’s more about enjoying a change of scene, something different, and sharing different experiences together (which don’t always revolve around being Mum and Dad).  more “WHODUNNIT?

When two heavens collide #SmiggleSquishies review @smiggle_uk

2018 has undoubtedly been the year of the Squishie in the Muddling Through Household. Since we were first  introduced to the bizarre concept of a foam novelty shaped stress ball back in February, the obsession has taken a firm grip of our six year old, whose squishie collection has grown steadily (and slowly much to the dismay of Tigs who could sniff out a squishie shop from a mile away). more “When two heavens collide #SmiggleSquishies review @smiggle_uk”

Shifu Orboot The Augmented Reality Globe Toy Review

When it comes to toys, I firmly believe that a globe is an absolute must have for every child at some point in their early life. After all, as they become more aware of their place in the world, and how each culture and country is placed in relation to them, what better way to understand and experience it in a hands on way. more “Shifu Orboot The Augmented Reality Globe Toy Review”

Minnie Mouse Fashion Dolls review

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”
