Looking At The World Imaginatively With CBeebies New Show ‘Kazoops’

The children seem to be really enjoying their time at home for the Easter Holidays. So far we have managed to keep the kids busy, entertained and most importantly happy at home. The holidays are the time to kick back, to relax and to enjoy our time together as a family and whilst I like to keep the children active there comes a time when I hold my hands up, submit and allow us all a little screen time.

What better way to relax after a busy day running around castles, scaling soft play, baking biscuits, or burning off the beans at bouncy castle madness sessions than by curling up on the sofa and catching up on some television?… Read more from this post

Transform Your Windows From Drab To Divine With Custom Made Window Dressings From Make My Blinds

Following the completion of our extension Paul and I spent a great deal of time decorating, furnishing and adding the finishing touches to our beautiful new bedroom and en suite bathroom.

Having spent time living in numerous houses over the years I have slept in a range of bedrooms none of which have been comparable in terms of quality or size. Our new room is far bigger than any of our previous bedrooms and with the added en suite it feels as if we are living in luxury!

I’m not saying bigger is better but having the space to fit a king size bed, a dressing table, two sets of bedside drawers, a dresser and a large set of double wardrobes whilst still being able to stretch out feels great.… Read more from this post

From Gaming To Reality With Roblox Figures & Playsets

Being the ultimate geek, our son J is really into gaming related figures and plush toys including Angry Birds, Mario, Sonic The Hedgehog, Minecraft, Terraria and of course Lego! His bedroom is much like a gamers paradise, choc-a-block with computer gaming based novelties and knick-knacks.



Much to J’s delight we were recently sent the latest range of Roblox toys to try out and to toy with. Roblox is one of the world’s largest social platforms for play powering the imaginations of people Worldwide.

Roblox is available to play on a wide range of platforms including PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Amazon Devices and the XBOX One.… Read more from this post

Perfect Personalised Pirate Birthday Accessories From Dom & Geri

It’s usually at this point in the year that I begin listing gift ideas for our sons birthday. It may be just over a month away but I already have a fairly good idea of what J is hoping for this year and have even made a start on purchasing one or two presents in preparation for the big day.


Pirates Ahoy!

J tends to go through phases of being utterly obsessed about one particular thing. Currently J is totally potty about pirates, rather than getting dressed into jeans and a tee-shirt after school he will often return downstairs wearing a pirate costume and carrying a sword of some sort.… Read more from this post

Brilliant Baby Based Role Play With The Baby Annabell Potty Training Set

Whilst I am absolutely 100% certain that my days of procreation have ceased my daughter E seems to think otherwise as she adores babies. If we happen to see a little one being pushed along in their pram or a baby is sat playing whilst we are at toddler group E cannot help but to get up close and personal.

A few years ago E’s Grandparents treated E to her first ever baby doll and pram set which as you can imagine was an instant hit. With E being that bit older yet still baby mad her Grandparents very kindly updated the pram with a more realistic push chair and the doll with a more life-like, interactive Baby Annabell.… Read more from this post

Making Memories With Canvas Champ Personalised Photo Canvases

As a parent I like to keep a photographic record of my little ones as they grow up. I literally take thousands of photos each and every year which I then organise into folders and store upon my computer. Every now and again I get the children’s photos printed and place them into large albums in date order because I have serious OCD when it comes to organisation.

Those albums often end up stored in their memory boxes which are ever-growing above our heads in the attic. Sadly not many of our photos are on display and this is something which I have been working upon over the past year or so.… Read more from this post
