Geronimo Festival 2015 (Video)

On Sunday we headed up to Tatton Park for Geronimo Festival, which was buckets of fun! I’ll be posting a no doubt photo-heavy post in a few days here on the blog, but for now you can get a peek of the action with this video on my YouTube channel. We had an amazing day and there was so much to do, and all included in… Continue Reading “Geronimo Festival 2015 (Video)”


Puppy Spam!

Last weekend we visited my Mother in Law for an afternoon, and we all spent ages playing with the new puppies. Of course, I took along my camera and snapped away – there isn’t much cuter than two small children playing with four small Norwich Terrier puppies! I took an awful lot of photos, and here are my favourites…

Giveaway: Sea Life Centre Family Passes

I’m delighted to announce that the Mama Geek family have been chosen as ambassadors for Sea Life Centre Birmingham. It is one of Georgie’s favourite places to visit locally – especially since they added some rather adorable penguins – and so we are delighted to be working with them and promoting their attraction over the next year. We will be visiting regularly and keeping you… Continue Reading “Giveaway: Sea Life Centre Family Passes”


Macro Flowers – My Sunday Photo

I ordered some macro extension tubes for my Samsung NX 3000 camera (you can see a link at the end of the post to what I got) this week, and as soon as they arrived I was out in the garden playing around. We are lucky enough to have moved into a house with a lovely garden that, although small, flowers from Spring to Autumn,… Continue Reading “Macro Flowers – My Sunday Photo”


We’re going to Geronimo Festival!

This Sunday we are heading up to Tatton Park to attend a brand new family festival, Geronimo! We have been given press accreditation to the show in order to check it out and share the fun here on Mama Geek.

How to Knit - Black Sheep Wools

Learning to knit – a goal for 2015

I’ve been enjoying crochet for a few years now, and even blogged about what you need to get started with the hobby – my crochet starter kit. Knitting, however, has always been beyond me. I have tried to learn to knit a few times with very little success, but I am determined to give it one last good go this year and crack it. At… Continue Reading “Learning to knit – a goal for 2015″

Schleich Riding Arena

Review: Schleich Riding Arena (42189)

We were sent this riding arena for Georgie to test out, and have been really pleased with the quality of the toy. I’ve seen a few Schleich products in the shop before, but this is the first we have had as Georgie has just come into the age range for this type of toy. The play set is simply packed in a cardboard box, with bubblewrap protecting it inside, and small plastic bags containing the smaller parts. The pony had a bit of cardboard in with it to provide extra protection, which was nice to see. Not too much packaging, and a lot of it recyclable – so that’s good.… Continue Reading “Review: Schleich Riding Arena (42189)”

Baby Show 2015 – my favourite products!

On Saturday I attended the Baby Show in Birmingham. Now that Lydia is 2, I think this is probably going to be my last Baby Show – although I suppose I may change my mind next year! I always enjoy attending the show and discovering new brands and products that I’ve not seen before, and after a few years in this blogging community, it’s also great… Continue Reading “Baby Show 2015 – my favourite products!”


Bubble – My Sunday Photo

Yesterday I attended the Baby Show and met up with Zara from Mojo Blogs. We were chatting with the team on the Arla Big Milk stand, and suddenly this bubble appeared seemingly out of nowhere and Zara managed to catch it on the tip of her finger, which surprised us all! I had my camera around my neck and couldn’t resist snapping a quick pic.
