Family Friendly BLACK FRIDAY Deals

Black Friday this, Black Friday that…. the discounted shopping day has become the discounted shopping week, and quite frankly it’s a bit of a minefield. In the last few hours alone I have received hundreds of emails promoting another sale, another slash in prices and yet another bargain. But how do you tell the real deals from the superficial ones? We’ve scoured through the deals to pick out some of our favourites for families. Here’s the low down! All the tweens love Claire’s – and they have 40% off ALMOST EVERYTHING for their Black Friday deals – they have...

REVIEW & GIVEAWAY – Play Like Mum Silver Cross Dolls Prams

Since Erin has become a big sister, I have definitely seen the arrival of her more maternal side. She loves playing with her dolls and has started to show a real caring demeanour, giving them lots of cuddles and comforting them to ‘sleep’ during imaginative play. We had a very basic pushchair when Erin was younger, so when we were offered the chance to review one of the new Play Like Mum Silver Cross Dolls Prams, I literally jumped at the chance.

We wrongly came to the assumption that this luxurious double bed with its super soft springy mattress and it’s stunning grey divan with would be big enough for the both of us. We had an illusion of the two of us, contentedly sleeping soundly in our brand new bed. A side each, space for a cosy spoon should the feeling take us and ample room for a Ross Geller style “hug and roll”. We have never...

The Photos that will Never Be

This week I had my photograph taken with a group of colleagues for a work magazine. 10 of us – 2 men and 8 women, none of whom particularly wanted their photograph taken, gathered round in a huddle of strategically placed poses, attempting to make ourselves look both presentable and professional, happy yet natural. It took a while. As always with modern technology, images become disposable. The first few attempts were discarded – a blink here, a wonky smile there, and a few people trying to hide behind their co-workers. After around 10 attempts, we settled on an image....
