We are huge fans of Scleich as you’ve probably gathered over the years. Their quality and attention to detail is next to none! So we were very excited when they kindly sent us their Large Horse Stable to test out! My 7yo loves horses and he was ecstatic! My 8yo was eager to get building. […]
Memory making. A major phrase used on social media, and in hashtags. Have you seen it? Of course you have! If you’ve followed my site for any length of time you know I am all about the memory making, most likely OTT some of the time, but I am desperate to ensure my boys have […]
Tiosebon recently sent us some of their footwear and we are SO impressed! They have been so comfortable! These knitted walking shoes are like walking on air! These shoes have been such a good wear. They have been on the beach, to the mall, in the town, in the countryside and at home in the […]
I absolutely love new parents and their naivety. They have all these fabulous plans and ideals for their future life as parents. They bring home their bundle of joy and have all sorts of plans and dreams going through their little post-pregnancy minds. Let me just stop you right there. NONE OF IT WILL HAPPEN! […]

Monster Jam is one big monster truck competition full of mud, excitement, stunts and noise! (You’ll definitely need some ear defenders for the younger fans!) We got to see some of the monster trucks […]

My boys were thrilled to receive a parcel from Schleich a few weeks ago; a Dino Cave Playset! An actual cave! They were super […]
In our house we have a thing for unicorns. When I say ‘we’ I mean my 6yo and I! I have loved unicorns for a very long time, and it appears my 6yo shares that love. We have mugs, pens, notebooks, jewellery, cuddly toys, lights, statues but strangely no figures. Until now! Schleich very kindly […]
Life is busy, add children into the equation and it is crazy busy. Careers, house keeping, families, health issues, errands, chores, appointments, school, courses; there is just SO much going on! As a momma I know there is always something that needs doing, always. There is always a grazed knee that needs kissing, a spillage […]
Father’s day is a happy/sad day for me, as I’m sure it is for countless people. I thought I’d share my Father’s day feelings with you, even if to just reassure other people that they are not alone if their weekend will be tinged some form of sadness. The role of a father is so […]
