This week we received a wonderful giant bubble wand from Gazillion bubbles to test out.   It was perfect timing because as you can see from the state of my house behind Imogen we had family over this weekend. It was Elizabeth and Leon’s birthdays and everyone came over with gifts and to watch them blow their candles out. It… Read more →

Ravensburger Horse Heaven Jigsaw Puzzle Review

My kids haven’t done a jigsaw for YEARS. They play on their tablets and the PC, their laptops, the xbox. They craft, they love crochet, knitting, reading, drawing etc but we’d forgotten about jigsaws. They are kinda basic aren’t they? They don’t make a noise, they aren’t exciting. wrong! When I was offered the review for a 300 piece puzzle… Read more →

Legoland Christmas 

We go to Legoland at least once a month and because we go so often I usually just give you a snapshot of our visit. Today though, since it’s Legoland Christmas I thought I would give a proper description of our visit. The picture below shows us on our way to Legoland from the car park. As usual the big… Read more →

 Yellow moon star mosaic magic wands

Here’s the children’s craft session photographed by the children.  I think this… Read more →

Chill Factore: Santa’s Snow Kingdom!

We were invited to Chill Factore for the second year running and like last year I only told the children we were going on an adventure, not where we were going. Imogen had worked it out because a) we went last year at a similar time and b) I packed gloves. Elizabeth had discounted it as a possibility because I… Read more →

Rumbly Tummy Cicciobello dolly review 

This week we were sent the Rumbly Tummy Cicciobello dolly to review. It is actually for ages 3+ and Oona is only 30 months but she’s always been quite advanced in her play, I think because the older children stretch her capabilities. She’s always wanted to be a big girl.  Seeing the doll in the packet in the shop it… Read more →
