No more boring socks with Sockshop!

  • October 30, 2019

Just as the mornings started to turn a bit chilly here in Spain, a lovely parcel from SockShop arrived in the post! You might think that we wouldn’t need socks in Spain, and for the summer months you’d be right, but the temperature has dropped to around 12 degrees of a morning all of a sudden. This might not sound very cold to those of you in the UK, but >>

Brilliant Brainz Magazines

  • April 1, 2019

Do you know what one of my pet hates is? All those magazines they put by the entrance of shops so there’s no way you can sneak past with a child without being begged for a magazine full of adverts and plastic tat. I wouldn’t mind if Little H actually looked through them when we got home, but once the plastic toys have been ripped from the cover, the magazine >>

Photowall Canvas Review

  • January 12, 2018

I have a bit of a thing about taking photos of beach huts, which is easy to do when you live on the coast! I’ve wanted to turn one of my photos into a canvas for a while but just haven’t got around to it. So when Photowall invited me to review a canvas I thought this would be the perfect opportunity. Photowall have a wide range of wall murals >>

A Day Out At Cheddar Gorge

  • March 9, 2017

Last weekend we went on a little adventure to Cheddar Gorge. Both the husband and I had been when we were kids but we’d never taken Little H before. The weather forecast didn’t look good but we were determined to get out and about. Cheddar Gorge is just under 2 hours from where we live. It’s not that far distance wise but takes longer because of the windy country lanes and >>

When I was invited to try out some of the personalised stocking stuffers from Snapfish I thought this was the perfect >>

Update: the competition is now closed but there’s still a valid discount code for all orders below. One of the dreaded school holiday jobs has got to be sewing name labels into the new school uniform! For the last 2 years (nursery and Early Years) I’ve bought stick on labels from My NameTags and I can’t recommend them highly enough – and not just because I’m terrible at sewing. My Nametags >>
