An Eighth Birthday Party

The week before Christmas was Holly’s eighth birthday. This year she opted for a karaoke party and a minibus parked itself on our drive for two hours whilst the children sang their hearts out to the likes of Little Mix and Greatest Showman, much to the delight of our neighbours I’m sure!


The Top 7 of 2018 Tag

As New Year hits I love looking reflecting on the past twelve months and all the things we have got up to - it's easy to forget everything that has happened over the space of several months and for posterity's sake I like having a place I can come to and reflect easily. So when I was tagged in One Frazzled Mum's Top 7 Tag by Hodge Podge Days, it was the perfect opportunity to sum up our year.

Review: Brompton Lakes Self Catering Lodges in North Yorkshire

Last weekend I was invited to stay for the weekend at Brompton Lakes self catering lodges in North Yorkshire. Myself along with five other bloggers head over the Dales for two nights of relaxation, food and laughter. What I didn't expect was the peace and companionship I found from spending time with women who expected nothing from you but to be yourself.


How to Save Money On Your Mobile Phone Contract

Having a workable plan when it comes to mobile phone contracts ensures you have your expenditure in check. Phone companies are notorious for being sneaky when it comes to monthly charges and EE have just paid a huge fine after continuing to charge customers the same monthly fee longer after their contract has ended! That basically means thousands of people have paid for their smartphone many times over. Don’t get caught out, here are ways that help you save on mobile contracts.


Review: Christmas Winter Wonderland in Liverpool

We absolutely love December and the build up to the Christmas season and usually have a few different events to go to get us in the festive spirit. For the first time this year, Liverpool have opened their own Winter Wonderland and we were invited along to give it a try. The event is set in the Bombed Out Church in the city centre, which I have never actually been inside before and with lots of activities set up, it looked like it would be a good one.


Men's Winter Style With Jacamo

With Winter well and truly upon us we've dug out our thick coats and put away the lighter, and not quite as protective jackets and raincoats. As always at this time of year, someone is short on a good quality coat - usually due to a growth spurt - however this year it was Mr H whose coats seemed to have had a little too much wear and tear. Thankfully the people at Jacamo offered him some pieces from their Winter range so he could look a bit more presentable.

Between us we browsed their site looking for the right coat - he already has a smart work one but really needed a more casual coat for standing on the side of the football pitch in whatever weather or walking the dog. He can be a bit particular with what he likes, which always makes it fun for me at Christmas ad birthdays, but eventually he opted for a black parka which, with its fur lined hood, would keep him warm and also suited his frame.

Gift Guide: Kids Books For Christmas

I am a huge book lover and always have been, and I encourage my children to read as much as I can. Neither of the children seem to be natural bookworms, which has surprised me, but they do love listening to stories each night. I thought this year I would put together a few of our favourites, as well as a few ideas to get those children who are not natural readers enjoying reading without realising they are.

Review: Poopsie Unicorn Slime Surprise


If your child is like mine, they will love slime - I don't think there's many children who haven't latched on to this craze which sees kids messing with glue and chemicals to create something that sticks to carpets and fabric and will not be removed. As you can probably tell, it isn't my favourite trend! However the kids love it and on occasion I have relented and let them get some, and when we were recently sent the new Poopsie Unicorn Slime Surprise to try that was one of those times.
