Viva Aviva – Can’t Believe I’ve Just Said that!

I don’t often have anything good to say about insurance but… This week my Mother-in-law put petrol in her rather expensive and fairly new Land Rover which takes diesel…We grimaced with her as she realised what she had done when the car wouldn’t start and I’ve never seen my Father-in-law sink a beer quicker than he did that afternoon as we waited for the recovery vehicle to pick it up – well, no one was driving obviously so a beer […]

Chessington World Of Adventures? World Of Queue And Wait More Like!

My feet ache and the children are over wrought with tiredness. It was a long day of being out yesterday and I, the woman who loves a day out, a theme park in particular, have to say it was entirely not worth it! We visited Chessington World Of Adventures yesterday for the second year in a row. I remember going as a child and loving it but last year I was distinctly underwhelmed. I found it to be too big, too […]

Munchkin Click Lock Bento Mealtime Set – A Review!

Our favourite food is ‘bit’s as we call it. A little bit of this and a little bit of that… Some olives and ham, crisps probably and maybe some dips… We just love that style of eating and Bento, a traditional way of serving food in japan, is perfect for us as it’s lots of little bits portioned up individually and put together as one box of bits! Lovely! It’s also a fab way of feeding children as lots of […]

My Aldi Best Buys!

I’ve not made any secret of the fact that, like my Mum, I am now an Aldi convert!

Nothing is scrimped on with quality and the lower prices, as far as I can see, are achieved with the ‘experience’ of the shop. It’s […]

Park Your Bum And Jump Around!

What is it about children and sofas? They seem to see them as giant play things placed in their setting for the sole purpose of fun! Do they see a beautiful piece of furniture that accentuates the rooms’s decoration and enhances ones comfort for television viewing? Well mine certainly don’t! Nope, my children, like to climb on, build dens with, bounce upon, hide underneath and do pretty much everything to the sofa bar sit quietly on it while they read […]

It’s summer holidays time and that only means one thing! Bring on the fun! With six whole weeks at home, it is up to us as parents to build entertainment for our little ones!

Doubled Up Pocket Money!

As a child whose parents divorced when I was little you could say I was at a disadvatage sometimes. It’s true, for things like big family Christmas celebrations and the like and I was. I spent most of the time missing my Dad, some of the time missing my Mum and all of the time pretty sad that my parents were no longer together. It affected me and there weren’t that many bonus points that I could see as a […]
