We were recently given the opportunity to have a four-night break at Bluestone National Park Resort, in Pembrokeshire, Wales.

As soon as we’d got our booking confirmed, we received periodic emails …

Meet Colin the Crab

I’ve seen Gone Crabbing clothes and kitchenware before and have always had a little soft spot for that crab, as the image makes me smile. He always looks so happy! So when I heard that they’ve now brought out a pop-up picture book about him, I was unable to resist…! …

Natwest’s Mobile Banking App – Review

I’ve been a Natwest customer for years – I set up my first bank account with them, and I’m pretty old now, so I’m thinking it’s at least 20 years! I like to think I know a bit about banking and finance, having worked in the sector for a good …

Mediflow Pillow Review & Give-Away

We review a good range of items here, but I’d say that the majority are for the children, or the home, and are very rarely of direct benefit or interest to the Husband. Until now. When Mediflow got in touch with me, asking if I’d be interested in reviewing one of …

We haven’t really been hit by the Lalaloopsy craze here. Well, not yet! We’ve certainly seen the dolls in the shops, but that’s about all we knew about it all. Until now. We received a copy of the new Lalaloopsy Ponies: The Big Show DVD, and Boo has been reviewing …
