Our favourite Christmas presents!

It’s been a few weeks since Christmas now, and just enough time to see which presents have been one-hit wonders, and which will be well-used and much-loved. Thankfully, not much has dive-bombed and been dropped in a box to be forgotten forever – a few of the silly little stocking fillers maybe, but nothing big from under the tree has been a failure. Phew! We didn’t… Continue Reading “Our favourite Christmas presents!”

Saying hello to 2016 – Little Loves

It’s my first Little Loves of the year! The last few months of 2015 were quite difficult for me so, let’s face it, this is also my first one for a few months. Oops. After taking a nice long break from work & blogging over the Christmas break I have eased back into things, as dealing with various dramas at home (hello, exploding washing machine) hasn’t… Continue Reading “Saying hello to 2016 – Little Loves”

Panasonic Freeview Play HDD Recorder Review - Box

Review: Panasonic HDD Recorder with Freeview Play (DMR-HWT150EB)

We don’t pay for any live subscription TV services, instead preferring to stick with Freeview for our live TV. A HDD recorder is the perfect compromised between a paid service and a basic Freeview player. With this Panasonic box you are able to pause live TV, rewind, and record TV.… Continue Reading “Review: Panasonic HDD Recorder with Freeview Play (DMR-HWT150EB)”

Teletubbies toys

Review: New Teletubbies toys

Teletubbies first came out when I was 11 years old and I have vivid memories of the bright coloured characters, instantly appealing to young children, and massively popular. A new series came out last year, and Tinky-Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po are all as loveable as ever, and both Georgie and Lydia have been enjoying the rebooted show.… Continue Reading “Review: New Teletubbies toys”

Smiggle Shopping Spree

Shopping Haul at Smiggle

We were invited to go along to our local Smiggle store and do a bit of shopping before Christmas. I love their bright, fun & quirky products so it wasn’t a hardship at all, to take this challenge! Take a look at our video for a look around the Bullring store, see Lydia and I browsing the items on sale, and watch me go through our shopping bag at home.… Continue Reading “Shopping Haul at Smiggle”

Georgie, Lydia and a box from Character!

Time for Teletubbies?

Just before Christmas we had a Very Exciting Delivery from Character. A mysterious box arrived covered in stickers of a certain foursome of loveable colourful characters! The girls were beside themselves with excitement – and then insisted on being beside the box as I snapped a pic. Teletubbies relaunched with great success in 2015, much to Lydia & Georgie’s delight – they have been really… Continue Reading “Time for Teletubbies?”

Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas!

When this post publishes I will probably (hopefully!) be in bed with a cup of coffee & a chocolate brioche, with the kids on the bed investigating their stocking presents. Then we will get up, we might have some more breakfast, and watch the Muppet’s Christmas Carol. A huge Christmas Dinner, Bucks Fizz, Sherry and Prosecco for the adults and Shloer for “posh grown up… Continue Reading “Happy Christmas!”
