Do your children want wheels for Christmas too?

November 30, 2017 admin 0

Has your child asked for wheels this Christmas? So far every Christmas at least one of the boys has asked for an item with wheels, if not both of them. We have had requests for scooters, bikes, roller blades and even a skateboard and just when I though we had every possible option already covered and filling up the garage this year we have had a request for shoes with wheels in them. You know, […]

What the boys are reading

November 29, 2017 admin 0

I love to read, always have and I imagine I always will. When I was little I remember my nana would read fairy stories to me when she babysat, our favourite book was about flower children that I absolutely loved and when we weren’t reading that she would make stories up for me. Once I was old enough to read by myself I would devour books, loosing myself in the twists and turns and as […]

Okay so you know that saying, “dogs are for life and not just for Christmas”, well I think I got it the wrong way round. You see we bought our boys a puppy for Christmas, Buddy the golden cocker, we have had him since October so technically by January we will have had him longer than JUST Christmas, but life?! seriously! What have I committed to.   This gorgeous, butter wouldn’t melt, puppy dog is a […]

The easiest way to get festive this Christmas

November 20, 2017 admin 0

Every year at the start of December, maybe even a little earlier, the little village where my family and I live starts to become a winter wonderland of sorts, with decorations popping up all over the place. We have the village lights that run through the main street but we also have an array of decorated houses, some, like ours, have a few strings of lights whereas others will have inflatables, models, and lights galore. Every […]

Is Gel-a-peel just for girls?

November 16, 2017 admin 0

We have recently been sent two gel-a-peel sets to review the first was the Gel-A-Peel 547198E5C Fashion Station    and the second was the colour changing kit.   Gel-a-peel is a selection of liquid gels in a variety of colours that can be manipulated to create various shapes but once dried it goes hard and keeps the shape.  It can be used as a stand alone substance to create jewellery or can be put on fabrics to customise […]

Running into the local boots and grabbing a gift set on Christmas eve is great but it doesn’t have the same effect on the gift receiver as when they open a thoughtful, personalised gift such […]
