Dozy Dogs – a product review

March 1, 2018 admin 1

When we were asked if we would like to review Dozy Dogs I just knew I had to agree, the tiddler is dog mad and loves anything to do with puppies or dogs and is probably the sole reason why I eventually caved and agreed we could get a family dog. Dozy dogs is a creative activity that consist of 3 different sized dogs 3 ready cut pieces of felt 3 felt pens a selectin […]

Living Coasts in Torquay

February 27, 2018 admin 3

Last week we visited my Nana in Paignton and on the Wednesday we visited Torquay for the day. After finding Living Coasts on the Visit South Devon website I knew I wanted to pay them a visit, especially as the penguins roam free which certainly isn’t something you get to see everyday.   We arrived at about 11am and thankfully the school holidays in South Devon differ to those in the North West so it […]

Torquay’s Dinosaur World

February 26, 2018 admin 5

Last week my family and I went on a little holiday down south, we started in Fareham staying with my brother and then travelled to Paignton to see my nana. Before our trip I researched places to visit and things to do and found Torquay’s Dinosaur World on the Visit South Devon website and thought it would make a great trip as both boys love dinosaurs but especially the tiddler.   Torquay’s Dinosaur World in […]

Gel-a-peel do geletines

February 16, 2018 admin 0

You all know how much we love Gel-a-peel in this house, the boys are crazy for the stuff, especially the tiddler. He has made a t-shirt with a gold ice cream on it, bracelets, necklaces and even a pair of earrings for me (which he insisted I wore for an entire day). So when we were asked if we would like to make some valentines day cards with gel-a-peel and instantly had two thoughts   […]

The Wizard of OZ at St. Helens Theatre Royal

February 16, 2018 admin 0

On Wednesday we payed our second visit to the Theatre Royal , this time to see The Wizard of OZ. Last time we sat high up and had a wonderful view of the stage, whereas this time we were seated on the lower floor and it made me realise what a nice little theatre St. Helens is,  it had a lovely personal and intimate feel to it and I think I would probably choose these […]

Circus Extreme at Event City – Review

February 14, 2018 admin 4

Last night we had a three generation family night out to watch Circus Extreme at Event City in Manchester. This was the first time we had been to see this show and I wasn’t too sure what to expect and as it started at 7:45pm I was a little worried it might be too late for the boys and they might fall asleep. I needn’t have worried they were absolutely transfixed from start to finish. […]

Glam Goo A Product Review

January 31, 2018 admin 0

Last week the boys were sent a Glam Goo Slime and Accessory Deluxe Pack to review. The idea behind it is that you  design your own slime and then place it inside a ring and a clutch bag in order to create accessories. When it first arrived I was a little disappointed because it was very pink and although they are trying to make the slime appeal to girls I couldn’t help but get annoyed […]

Behind every entrapruener is an annoying little sister

January 16, 2018 admin 0

The other day I read a press release about sweets that were good for your teeth and all I could think was “what a load of rubbish”. Of course you can get sugar free sweets that aren’t necessarily bad for your teeth but that is not the same as declaring them good for your teeth. So, true to character, I obviously had to investigate this further before I outed them for making a ridiculous claim […]

Good bubble, a bath time review

January 15, 2018 admin 0

Bath time is an important part of the bedtime routine,  it helps to calm and soothe a child before going to bed……… ha believe that you will believe anything. Bath time is a time to splash proof the floor, walls and ceiling as you try and convince your child that your bath is not an Olympic size pool and “no you don’t want to see how big the waves are”. It is also a time […]

Our first visit to Winter Wonderland in Manchester

December 12, 2017 admin 0

Last night we were invited to the Winter Wonderland in Manchester for some festive fun. This was our first visit and although I had heard all about it I still wasn’t sure what to expect or how an indoor theme park would actually work. We hadn’t told the boys where we were going just that it was an adventure, so when we arrived and were welcomed by elves, a winter bear, a dance show and a […]
