Finding Dory at The National Sea Life Centre

Phew, I Passed! A Look Back at A200

Papery Peep July 2016

It’s Papery Peep time already! July has flown by, hasn’t it? I don’t know quite where it went. I know that I didn’t get as much reading done as I normally do, though I struggle to put my finger on exactly why. I need to get through loads of books …

The Slumberdown Fresh & Healthy Range

Glow Art Board Review & Giveaway

When I was contacted to review a Glow Art board, my interest was immediately piqued. It’s a transparent neon effect board that allows kids to draw, trace and colour anything they want at any time. I had not see them before, but as I have a creative 6 year old …

Pokemon Go Has Got Me

The Husband came home a few evenings ago and showed me his phone with a Squirtle on our lawn. He threw a ball at it and trapped it, popping him in his Pokedex. He was so pleased with himself. He is 40 years old. A few hours later, he randomly …

Uncommon Gifts with UncommonGoods

I cannot be the only one who has those people in my life that are tricky to buy for? The ones who seemingly have everything and need nothing? So difficult to think up gift ideas for them, but perhaps help is at hand with UncommonGoods. UncommonGoods offers a range of …

Something for Everyone at Madame Tussauds
