Raymond Briggs’ The Snowman – Review!

Last year we went to see Raymond Briggs’ The Snowman at the Peacock Theatre for the first time and we absolutely loved it. Florence and I had an evening with just us when we attended a Save The Children Christmas Jumper Day event and were treated to the ballet but this year, we knew we couldn’t keep it to ourelves because it was so wonderfully Christmassy that it really is a performance for the whole family to enjoy! It has […]

Pizza Express – Winter Menu 2015!

A couple of week’s ago, after a festive skate at Somerset House, we popped into our fave for the whole family restaurant, Pizza Express. We’d never been to the one on The Strand before and I am always a little skeptical about eating in central London because often I find restaurants think they don’t have to bother, knowing their trade is mainly with tourists and not expecting repeat customers, however, it was just as Pizza Express should be and everything […]

There’s A Tooth, Loose, Aboot This Hoose!

Another week in the Rock ‘n’ Roller Baby household and we’ve been wrapping up very warm. Suddenly the cold has hit and not in a tickling, it’s coming soon kind of way but in a final, it’s here to stay melody and hats, gloves and scarves are the order of the very chilly day. I don’t mind so much because I love winter fashions and turning the twinkling lights on in the evening as the wind bustles outside the window […]

Portable North Pole – Review!

I know some people aren’t big fans of the whole ‘Father Christmas is watching’ tack when it comes to getting the children to behave but I’m afraid it rather does do it for me. Maybe I’m a big meanie? But I don’t think so. I’m usually soft as anything when it comes to the children, I just find a gentle reminder now and then seems to do the trick! Jimmy has been an absolute monkey of late. He won’t tidy up […]

Tis The Season To… Eat, Drink And Be Merry!

I keep seeing people on social media getting the hump because it’s ‘only November’ and Christmas is all over the place… Well, to those people, you might want to look away now! I’m well up for it this year and am just itching to get that tree up. Except it’s in the loft and Jonny won’t get it down until it’s at least December… Perhaps I’m being a pathetic woman here but loft duty is NOT something I consider my […]

Pebli Town – Review!

A while back we were invited to the launch party of Pebli Town, a new interactive toy from Toys Alive. Unfortunately we couldn’t make the date but I’ve kept hearing about it ever since and was super pleased to finally get the chance to check it out for myself this past month while we’ve been reviewing it. Pebli Town is a connected pre-school toy which uses fun traditional play pieces and a physical play board that interact with a tablet to bring […]

An IKEA Christmas Haul!

One of the things I’m going to miss about living in London is that I won’t be so close to an IKEA. We are moving to Norwich where they have just opened up a new style store which is great but I’m not sure it will quite fulfill my IKEA needs. The good thing is that it is going to sell all the ‘bits’ from the market area of the store and these are the things I mostly go to […]

Thomas and Friends™ Zooming Along at Brendam Docks – Review!

Two years ago for his birthday, Jimmy was given a Thomas The Tank Engine which you could make up out of building bricks. He took him everywhere we went and I knew, at some point, he would get lost. We tried very hard to keep a hold of Thomas, we tried to persuade Jimmy to leave him at home because he was the clear favourite of all of the toys but the inevitable happend and we’ve now spent a long time trying […]

Elf The Musical – London Review!

On Wednesday the children and I were invited into central London to attend the evening performance of Elf The Musical at The Dominian Theatre. I didn’t tell them where we were going, just that we were off to something exciting, as I know Florence has been itching to see it ever since the posters arrived on the tubes. We met some other bloggers for a mulled wine reception and as Jimmy climbed over my head repeatedly and Florence moaned that […]
