Month: November 2013

The Readings Read – November

Another month, another array of books read. These have been our favourites… Little Man – Pip and Posy: The Little Puddle by Nosy Crow & Axel Scheffler He loves this book! We bought it for him for his birthday, but he’d not really paid attention to it for the first …

We Embraced The Season

I was a fair weather kinda girl. I love my flip flops, vests and summery skirts and I’d make the most of every last drop of sunshine. As soon as the flip flops have to be stowed and the boots or Converse reappear, you’ll not see me outside until spring! …

Win a Pair of Personalised Cufflinks

That time is coming. The one where you look desperately about for an idea for the men in your lives and draw a blank! I don’t know about you, but I do struggle to come up with ideas, particularly for my dad. Men can be very tricky to buy for, …

Before You Were Born Meme

I’ve been tagged by the lovely MamaMummyMum in this ‘Before you were born’ meme. It took me a few moments to actually recall such a time that we were without our children, but given that we were together for over a decade before we decided to start a family, we …

Thomas and Friends: Merry Christmas, Thomas! DVD – Review

When we were offered the chance to review the latest Thomas the Tank Engine DVD, I literally jumped at the chance. Boo is a huge Thomas fan, and loves the recent King of the Railway film – it’s very well-watched here! It arrived, and it was immediately viewed… Thomas and …

As Autumn Ends…

We’ve absolutely loved autumn here this year. I feel like it’s the first time that I’ve really embraced the changing of the season, as I’m definitely a warm weather kind of woman, and I can get annoyed when the sunshine leaves me! But, we’ve got out and enjoyed foraging for …

When Left To Their Own Devices…

Boo and Little Man have a fair few toys between them. Fortunately, we converted our dining room into a playroom for them, so they have room for them all to go without taking over the house, and of course, they have some in their bedrooms, too. To make the most …

Plan Toys Tumbling Tower Game – Review

We’re big fans of The Toadstool here, as regular readers will no doubt know from our previous reviews of some of their toys. So when we were asked to take a look at and have a good old play with Plan Toys Tumbling Tower Game, we clearly could not resist! …

Yikes, Stinkysaurus – Review

In our house, books about dinosaurs always go down well. We love Tyrannosaurus Drip, Dinosaur Roar, and those Dinosaur that Pooped.. books. So when ‘Yikes, Stinkysaurus’ arrived, I suspected it might go down well – I was right! Yikes, Stinkysaurus by Pamela Butchart, illustrated by Sam Lloyd Stinkysaurus is the …

I’m Loving…Burp! Boutique & there’s a Give-Away!

I’ve decided to run a new feature on the blog. It’s a very simple one and allows me to indulge myself by sharing with you anything that ‘I’m Loving’ at the moment. So to kick us off and debut the fun, we have Burp! Boutique.. I first discovered the wonders …

Where Did My Baby Go?

Yes, yes, ‘they grow so fast’ – you’ve heard that before, right? But, they really do!! I’ve always found that with Boo, but second time round seems to absolutely fly by, and this past week, I’ve looked up and spotted that Little Man is no longer a baby. I’m not …

Elf on the Shelf – A New Blog Hop #ElfTakeover

I love reading Karen’s Let Kids Be Kids blog, and it was while I was there last week that I read all about the Elf on the Shelf tradition. Now, I must admit, this one had passed me by somewhere. I’d spotted the odd tweet, the odd reference to it, …

Exploring A New Park

I had a few cards deliveries to make at the weekend, which I realise isn’t that scintillating for the kids, so I thought it’d be nice to tie in a trip to a new park at the end of the outing, as a treat for them being so good in …

Our Autumn Poem

We’ve been getting out and about and enjoying the season out there, from leaf hunts to foraging to wild art, we’re embracing it all. As such, and because the fabulous team over at Center Parcs have set us this challenge, we’re going to turn our hand to poetry and share …
