Winter is on it's way

The weather has definitely turned colder this week and the nights are drawing in, it was dark by 4 o'clock the other day, the heating has been on a lot longer than normal today and the girls even wore hats and scarves on the walk to school, winter is on it's way.

Our top 3 toys for Christmas and some stocking fillers too

Over the past year the Little Ones have been lucky enough to try out some of the newest books and toys on the market. Some of these toys have fallen by the wayside after the initial excitement wore off and others have become firm favourites, the same goes for the books, one is repeatedly picked up and there is nothing left to complete yet I am not allowed to throw it out and another is so loved and full of beautiful stories and ideas that I am sure it will be treasured for a long time to come.

So which 3 of the toys that we have reviewed in the past 12 months do I think would make excellent Christmas gifts for the children this year?

A review of a Grassholm lodge at Bluestone Wales

So I recently wrote about our Autumn break at Bluestone Wales and the great time we had having fun as a family and relaxing after a hectic term at school, I mentioned the lodge we had been staying in, a 4 bed, 3 bathroom Grassholm lodge and so here I am to tell you all about it.

A Christmas fiver challenge with Sportsdirect.com #sdfiverchallenge

There is no denying it now Christmas is not far away, the Little Ones are coming home from school singing songs for the school play, the Christmas dvd's are out and I still need a few gifts for quite a few people. If you are like me, with three children, Christmas is on a budget and I find it is getting harder and harder each year to buy gifts for others that don't break the bank and don't look like hardly anything either.

Mickey's Roadster Racer pit crew tool kit review

Little 3 has a fascination for tools at the moment, he is always going around with a toy screwdriver putting it in all the screws he can find trying to undo them and he loves hammering things, I have had to confiscate that a few times! 

When we were asked if Little 3 would like to review Mickey's Roadster racer pit crew tool kit, I knew it would be right up his street.

An Autumn break at Bluestone National Park Wales

Over half term we spent a mid week break at Bluestone Wales. Bluestone National Park resort is set in the beautiful area of Pembrokeshire not far from the Welsh coast and with the tag line 'Free Range Fun' we could not wait to get out of school on Monday and drive up there for a mid-week break of half term family fun.

Dreaming of crystal clear turquoise seas and far away beaches

We have just come back from a lovely Autumn half term break in Wales and I am beginning to think about where to go on our summer holiday next year, the Little Ones have simple requests and that is that there is a beach and preferably a swimming pool close by.
