Encouraging Outdoor Play With Gazillion Bubbles

AD | Gifted It’s been just over a week since the country went into a sort of lock down and staying at home became the new norm. If, like me, you are used to going out every day, your child going to school or nursery, amongst other regular day to day tasks then you might be struggling by now. Between trying to home school Erin, keep the house clean and look after my own mental health it can all seem to get a bit too much sometimes. We are very lucky to have a pretty large back garden and although

44 Cats The Club House Playset Review

AD | Paid collaboration A little while ago I wrote about a fantastic cartoon 44 Cats! Erin still loves to watch it and we were recently sent one of the toys from the show; The Club House Playset – Milady’s Place! Erin couldn’t wait to open it up and start playing.  This is quite a small playset and it comes with a Milady figure, complete with sunglasses as an accessory, as well as a bed, food and stickers to decorate with.

Making Bath Time Fun Again With Kids Stuff Crazy

AD | Gifted products Back in February Erin broke her arm and she had to go about 7 weeks with her arm in a cast. Although she coped with it really well, bath time and getting washed was a bit of an issue. Erin’s cast went really far up her arm and one of those special covers wouldn’t fit. We don’t have a shower so poor Erin was stuck having her hair washed once a week laying backwards over the bath and had it rinsed with a jug. To say she was unhappy was an understatement. When Erin’s cast finally

An Evening Reliving My Teenage Years

My absolute favourite band when I was growing up was 5ive. I knew all of the songs, I knew the dance moves and I definitely had my favourite. It had always been a dream of mine to see them in concert but it didn’t happen back in the ’90s. However, I did manage to go and see them at an outdoor concert at Chantry Park in Ipswich a few years ago and it was like a dream come true.
