The rustlers burger hacking challenge

February 6, 2018 admin 1

This weekend we took part in the rustlers burger hacking challenge. I hadn’t used these products before so I was interested and a little dubious to see what microwaveable burgers would be like. When I told boys we were having southern fried chicken burgers for tea they were very excited and when I told them they could choose their own topppings they got even more excited as there is nothing they like more than competing […]

February 2, 2018 admin 0

Valentines day is only two weeks away and the shops are over flowing with pink and fluffy items, heart shaped chocolates and enough candles to see us through a black out. But sometimes all these options make it harder for us to choose what to get our loved ones, to find something that they might actually appreciate, want and use without us spending too much money because lets be hones,t most people are still reeling […]

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 […]

My palm reading experience with PalmistryHD

January 23, 2018 admin 0

I first had my palm read at 18 and it fascinated me. I went with a couple of the girls from work and we had such a giggle. I was told that I would “be a nurse but not a normal one” and that I would “work in education with lots of computers to one side”. At the time I was planning on being a psychologist so this all sounded like utter rubbish to me, […]

Never to late to learn to skate

January 22, 2018 admin 0

One of my favourite reality programmes is Dancing on Ice. I love the costumes, the music, and of course Phil and Holly. But what I think I like the most is that it requires a skill and one that they then perform live in front of an audience. I think what I like about this is that there is less opportunity for the production team to edit the footage and present us with a particular […]

Social Media is becoming a significant tool for people to use to get to know each other. This also applies to the corporate structure where recruiters are now choosing to look at social media to determine whether or not a candidate is good enough for the job. Recruitment processes are changing with the times, and are becoming more dependent on technology and the online world, rather than previously where the focus was only on physical […]

Eco Friendly Toys: Do They Really Live Up To Their Name?

January 18, 2018 admin 0

There is a pushback that invariably occurs when talking about eco friendly products – does the use of those products really contribute to a cleaner, safer environment? Or does the waste they create manifest in a different form? Well, it all depends on what sort of eco-friendly toys you’re buying. The fact is that children’s toys are most often created from plastic, and given the short life cycle of these toys, this is obviously just […]

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 […]

How to encourage your children to talk about their day

January 8, 2018 admin 11

Sometimes getting children to talk about their day can seem impossible. When I pick the boys up from school I always ask them how their day was and most times I get the same rotation of responses I can’t remember It was fine Good thanks They literally walked out of the building minutes earlier yet they have nothing to tell me about their day. Don’t get me wrong, some days they are full of tales […]
