mother's day dvd

I’m a huge rom com fan – unfortunate when the OH’s favourite films are old westerns, war movies and fighting/action films.  But I got a treat when I was sent the new DVD release of Mother’s Day to review. Directed by Gary Marshall, Mother’s Day has a stellar cast including Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts and Kate Hudson, plus the gorgeous (even if he does have a beard) Jason Sudeikis. The movie explores what motherhood means to eat woman in their… Continue Reading “Mother’s Day DVD release – review and giveaway”

I-Spy books – the activity book relaunch

i-spy books

When I was a child I had an i-spy book of horses. I loved that little book, having been bought it at Banbury Museum just after moving to the area. I didn’t really manage to tick off many of the horses, but I loved it all the same. So when I heard that I-Spy books were being relaunched this summer, it made me smile. I jumped at the chance to take a look and try the modern versions out ourselves.… Continue Reading “I-Spy books – the activity book relaunch”

Alvinnn!!! and the Chipmunks Summer of Sport dvd giveaway

alvinnn and the chipmunks summer of sport dvd

Whenever I spot new tv shows that N’s watching, so many of them are reworks of programmes from mine or my brother’s childhood tv watching era.  One of those is Alvin and the Chipmunks.  We used to watch the original (I’m presuming from my brother’s time – or maybe we would just sit and watch anything at certain times of the day), and since then there’s been the film which was also fun. N’s never really seen much more than… Continue Reading “Alvinnn!!! and the Chipmunks Summer of Sport dvd giveaway”

I love my smartphone.  As a blogger and a parent, it’s a really handy tool to have at my disposal, and I wouldn’t be without it out of choice…predominantly for its camera.  But also for the functionality.  But with a young child around who still doesn’t take good care of technology items, having a good case to protect your phone is essential.  For the OH who’s a farmer, having an indestructible case always helps him too. For those of you… Continue Reading “Protect your phone – Iphone 6/6s case giveaway”

Sour Citrus Cupcake Starter Pack FW PKG F - Copy

This year has seen the launch of Num Noms to the UK.  I know when I was a child I’d have loved these – little toys, great for getting creative with and something to collect.  They’re not N’s cup of tea, but they’re going down a storm with other children. If you’ve not come across Num noms they’re little characters in the shape of cupcakes and ice creams that can be played with and combined to make different flavour mixes.  Not… Continue Reading “Num noms flavour play – giveaway”
