Helping Mums Enjoy Being A Mum & Feel Happier, Healthier & Wealthier

Great Toy For Imaginative Outside Play For Boys and TomBoys

Kids love Dens

Several months ago I was sent the most amazing thing for Curly Headed Boy to review the ‘Ultimate Dangerous Den Kit’ from Battle Box. OMG was I the best Mummy in the world for this old blogging marlarkey when it turned up! Luckily for me they are incredibly nice people as well, and they have never […]

I love the idea of being the best at something

augmented reality 3D book

It’s not that I’m ambitious; or maybe I am.  But I love the idea of being the best at something. I was always a ‘generalist’ at school.  A bit of a geek, good at everything, but not ‘the best’ at anything, so that’s probably where it comes from. I think this is why I love […]

How two young blokes larking around on the stage works

Andy Day and Mike James

A couple of years ago I went to see Andy Day (The tall skinny one with curly hair from cbeebies) and his mate Mike James in ‘The big box of bananas’, which Curly Headed Boy loved. So when we were invited to review their new show ‘The Tick Tock Time Machine’ I jumped at the […]

What I really want is a cuppa and a chat!

What I really want is a cuppa and a chat!

  I loved going to Britmumslive where I learnt loads and went to the awards ceremony. The MAD Blog Awards was wonderful. We’ve even had a couple of blogging get togethers here in St Albans and the #BlogItForBabies event.   But there is something missing …. The chance to chat properly with people I’ve met […]

Is this potentially the best family festival in the UK?

Fairy

  This is a mammoth review of Just So Festival 2012, so hold onto your socks! Because I reviewed it last year and wrote a pre-post explaining all the different areas and my plans, I thought that this year I would do a quick interview with some other people and get their perspectives. They’ve all had […]

The Key To A Successful Family Festival

Just So Festival

I’m so excited, because I’m off to review Just So Festival this weekend (In Cheshire at Rhode Hall: doors open at 2pm on Friday and we get kicked out of the campsite on Mon at 11). Last year was brilliant, but it was my first ever festival, so I had no idea what to expect. […]

An Adventure in Normandy

Omaha Beach in Normandy

Hmmm a Ferry and a mobile home?  I wasn’t sure what I was going to think about that. I have fond memories of staying in a caravan in the South of France at about 5yrs old and it being a crazy fun holiday, so we decided to take a chance and accepted the offer to […]

What Would Have Happened If Germany Had Won WW2

Child at Omaha War Memorial

I think the family thought I was being a bit eccentric when I kept saying I wanted to see the cemetery at Omaha Beach for the American Soldiers. I’m not even sure why I wanted to go? Something to do with Dad flying in the war? Perhaps wanting to give Curly Headed Boy who loves […]

Which is best going on holiday by Ferry or Aeroplane?

What it's like going on a ferry

Travelling with kids is generally considered a nightmare.  The question is, which is less of a night mare; Ferries or Aeroplanes? I was really nervous of trying a Ferry out considering the disaster of the Costa Concordia and that last time that I went on a school trip and puked the whole way. I’ve had […]

Don’t Go Thinking I’m More Adventurous Than You!

Kids love muddy festivals

I had a couple of lovely comments from Mums watching the funny stream of muddier and muddier instagram photos appearing during my visit to Penn Festival.  Many suggested how brave I was, or how well I was coping with mud up to the kids knees. So I thought I’d set the record straight, because I […]
