You Can’t Grow An Old Friend – Thinkway Toys Buzz And Woody!

You Can’t Grow An Old Friend – Thinkway Toys Buzz And Woody! That’s the saying isn’t it although I kind of think I’d like to disagree… I have been thinking about friendships ever since we agreed to review some new Toy Story toys (the new talking Buzz and Woody from Thinkway Toys at Smyths – which are excellent by the way and all in aid of celebration ahead of the new Toy Story film coming in 2019 AND you can […]

Miss Saigon Tour – Norwich Theatre Royal!

Miss Saigon Tour – Norwich Theatre Royal! It will blow your mind! I don’t even know where to begin? How to start? Miss Saigon at the Theatre Royal in Norwich has exceeded every expectation and I had lots. It’s gone above and beyond and I’m still, quite frankly, in shock at the tremendous performance I’ve just seen. A full house standing ovation and all the faces as we spilled from the theatre with delight tell me I am 100% not […]

When Did I Kiss Goodbye To Self Grooming?!

When did I kiss goodbye to self grooming?! If I’d known it was the last kiss I surely would have lingered longer? Nestled in for one last time… Soaked up all the pampered beauty and delighted in it for one last hurrah?! Only… It wasn’t a clean break you see. It wasn’t a case of cutting off all sources and going cold turkey, no! It happened ever so gradually and I went from a girl who took long languishing baths […]

Half Way Through The Holidays!

Half way through the holidays and I keep hearing people say they are tearing their hair out with the kids. I don’t know if I’m a rare breed or a little bit crazy but for me, I just see the days running away as quickly as they can and I want to hold on to each one.

You go everywhere on your bottom […]

Into The Summer!

We left the end of year at school with a massive high and both the big kids got wonderful school reports. I usually write about how they have got on but have literally had no time to even think so here I am, not documenting until we are well into the summer holidays and enjoying beach days in the sun! So I’ll be brief and to the point so that I have this as prosperity but so that I don’t […]

The AxissFix Car Seat By Maxi-Cosi!

The AxissFix car seat by Maxi-Cosi is the latest model in their fleet of seats which just seem to get better and better in terms of what they offer and less and less complicated to use – thankfully! I have always wanted my children to be in isofix based car seats but with my old car not supporting the bases it wasn’t an option. We now have a shiny new seven seater as was necessary with the birth of our third child […]

Camp Bestival 2018 Fun And Pre-Sale For 2019 Announcement!

This time last week we were enjoying some glorious Camp Bestival fun with my very best camp mates Cookie, Katy and Carolynne! The sun shone, the beers flowed, the kids laughed, ran wild and life was exactly as it should be in English summertime! We will gloss over the fact the heavens opened on Saturday night and we got gusts f wind over 50mph meaning the last day had to be cancelled. The stuff that happened before that little sequence […]
