#MySundayPhoto – Snaps From The City

Welcome to this weeks #MySundayPhoto, we’ve made it to London after  a rather lengthy journey (mostly time spent waiting in traffic jams on the M6) and so I thought I’d share some ‘snaps from the city’ with you.

We took the train out into the city today, we then spent two hours or so handing our hard earned cash over to Hamleys Toy Store, the kids loved every moment. We then jumped back onto the Tube for something a little more educational.

We managed to squeeze in a visit to both the Natural History Museum and The Science Museum before heading back to our hotel.…

#LittleLoves – Getting My Mojo Back

I am afraid it’s going to be a bit of a rushed #LittleLoves post, I am half way through packing for our mini-break to London and have yet to tick numerous jobs off the list before bedtime.

I somehow seem to fitting more and more into each day than seems humanly possible. At some point by mid-December I may possibly collapse from exhaustion but until then I will soldier on somehow.


The majority of my reading this week has either been blogs, catalogues, news articles or to-do lists. I have simply been too busy to read anything of any length.…

Creating Halloween Jewellery And Accessories With Gel-A-Peel

With Halloween approaching I have been making some plans for crafts with the kids. Whilst there is the obvious pumpkin carving I would like to include some alternative activities for the children over the half term.

What Is Gel-A-Peel?

Gel-A-Peel is a coloured gel which is applied to a plastic sheet and left to set to create a range of jewellery and accessories including earrings, bracelets, mobile phone cases and more.…

#MiniChefs With Num Noms – Review & Marshmallow Toffee Krispy Cake Recipe

Our little lady E has a bit of a thing for small, plastic toys such as Shopkins and other mini-figures. She was therefore delighted when we were sent The Num Noms ‘Diner’ and ‘Pizza Party’ set to review.

What are Num-Noms?

Num-Noms are cute, scented, collectible figures based upon food and flavours.

“A cupful of cuteness and a spoonful of surprise make Num-Noms. To create your own flavour fusion mix a Num and a Nom. It’s a recipe for mischief with so many wacky combos. The Num Noms are the cutest, mini dishes! And, they smell so delicious!”

Opening & Investigating the Num-Noms

After opening the ‘Diner Num Noms’ set we realised that there was also a ‘mystery’ Num Nom toy to add to the excitement.…

London’s Calling

It’s been ten years since we last visited London, a lot has changed since back then. We are now married, have moved house and are parents to two beautiful children. I can’t wait to show them the big city, especially to take them to the all-famous toy shop ‘Hamleys’ and watch their jaws drop at the sheer size of the place never mind its contents.

We are planning to drive down with as many stops as possible considering that we have a rather travel sick little lady. Hopefully we can ‘skip the sick’ and make it through the journey without any Dramas, wishful thinking hey?…
