Little Me, Little You

I loved Christmas when I was a child, and I still do. I get excited for the children, as I know how much I enjoyed it when I was little. So much of our Christmas is reminiscent of my own childhood, crammed full of traditions, as well as the Husband …

Christmas at Cadbury World

We went along at the weekend to Cadbury World‘s Christmas Celebration. We didn’t really know what to expect, but were wanting to visit as it’s somewhere we keep saying we must go to. We live in Birmingham, yet have never quite got round to visiting, despite the face that I live …

Disney Frozen My Smartphone Review

Now, the eagle-eyed amongst you might have noticed a new badge popping up in my sidebar there, letting people know that I’m now a KD UK ambassador.

The Magical Journey

When we were invited along to the opening weekend of The Magical Journey, given it’s tagline of  ‘your ultimate Christmas experience’, how could we refuse? I’d been keen to take the children as I’d seen a fair bit of press and hype about it, especially as it’s situated just 10 …

Duck-Feeding, Just The Two Of Us

A couple of days ago, Little Man and I popped to the park and to feed the ducks after we dropped Boo at school. Nothing strange about that, I know, except that to me, it felt really odd. I realised that this was the first time that we’d done this, …

My Garden in November

I’ve actually been gardening. In November. Yes, I surprised myself, too. I look out my window at the moment and am decidedly uninspired to potter about in the garden. It’s wet and damp and most of the colour has fled. But, a plant delivery that I’d placed back in August …

Wall Create Canvas Review & Give-Away

When Wall Create got in touch with me offering me a canvas of my choice, I didn’t hesitate. I love having pictures of my children on canvas, so we already have a few, and I knew just where I wanted a new one for. I’m revamping my working area (I’d …
