Testing The Toys For A Pound Kids Toy Generator

AD | Paid collaboration with Toys for a Pound I don’t know about you but with the summer holidays getting closer by the day I am worrying more and more about what I’m going to do to keep Erin occupied. It’s one thing to think of things to do at home but then we also have downtime on days out to fill and making sure we do some kind of activities to keep up with what Erin was doing at nursery. The summer holidays cost enough for days out and treats without having to think about paying a fortune for

Father’s Day Shopping At intu Chapelfield

AD | Gifted items When it comes to occasions like Christmas or birthdays shopping online might seem like the most convenient way to buy gifts. For me though, nothing beats heading into the city and browsing in real shops. Online shopping doesn’t have the same feeling or result as a lot of the time you only search for things you know you already want. intu Chapelfield armed me with a gift card and challenged me to do some shopping with them to find John some great gifts for Father’s Day! I decided to have a really good look around intu

My Favourite Charity Shop Bargain

We live in a smallish town in North Norfolk and although we’re only 30 minutes away from Norwich by train, I don’t get into the city much. This means that, as well as a lack of money, I don’t go shopping much at all. Something we do have where I live is quite a lot of charity shops though. I think we have at least 6 or 7 in our market square and they’re great to have a rummage in. I have one favourite thing that I’ve bought locally and it really is a charity shop bargain! One day, I

Discount Shopping With Food Circle Supermarket

Being a non-driving family means that we have to rely on other ways to get around. John works roughly 12 miles away from home and while that might not seem very far for someone with a car, it’s very far for someone who doesn’t. John is lucky that he can get a lift to and from work with a friend a lot of the time but this isn’t every day and it’s not guaranteed. We have access to a train that goes from the town we live in to where John works but at £5 a day, this soon adds

Erin’s Holiday Wardrobe Haul

At this age, small children don’t really go from one summer to the next still being able to wear the same clothes. Erin is so different now compared to a year ago so I knew that I would have to buy her quite a lot of new clothes for our holiday to Majorca. Travelling Outfits As this is our first family holiday abroad, it’s also the first time that Erin will have been on a plane. The flight is only 2.5 hours long but for a toddler, this can be a very long time. With the help of intu Chapelfield

Imaginative Play With Wicked Uncle

Although Erin goes to nursery for 3 days a week we still have 4 days together at home. Since starting nursery back in January the way that Erin likes to play has changed. Her imagination is fantastic and she really loves to be creative. At the same time, she likes to learn something new so I’m always on the look out for new and exciting things for her to play with. Feeling uninspired by the regular places I shop at, I decided to give Wicked Uncle a try. Wicked Uncle is a bit different to other toy shops because of

Preparing A Toddler For Their First Flight

In a few days John, Erin and I will be heading off to Majorca on our first family holiday abroad. I have flown plenty of times before and so has John but this is something completely new for Erin and she has no idea what to expect. Although we are only going on a 2.5 hour flight Erin might get worried or scared as soon as she sees the plane. At the moment she’s quite excited but you can never really be sure how a toddler will react to something. I thought it would be a good idea to put

Tips For Shopping In The January Sales

Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are out of the way it means that Christmas will be here pretty soon! That means the January sales are coming too. Well, I’m not really sure if I should call them January sales now. I remember when the sales did start after Christmas but now it seems that there are loads of sales on during the week before Christmas, which is just a bit crazy to me. People can often feel the pressure to go mad in these sales and spend money they don’t have or buy things they don’t need. I asked
