Wasgij puzzle – Christmas 2 in 1 Turkey’s Delight review

wasgij puzzle turkeys delight

I go through phases with jigsaw puzzles, and this autumn has seen me get back into them again.  It started with the lovely and relaxing Falcon de Luxe Christmas 2 in 1 puzzle, but has now moved onto a first for me. A Wasgij puzzle, the Christmas 2 in 1 jigsaw, named Turkey Delight. If you’ve never come across Wasgij before, they’re like a mystery in themselves.  The picture on the box isn’t what the jigsaw image ends up like. … Continue Reading “Wasgij puzzle – Christmas 2 in 1 Turkey’s Delight review”

The Son of Bigfoot DVD release and giveaway

son of bigfoot dvd bundle

It’s not often we get agreement from N to watch a film that we’d all be happy watching, but I’m hoping that with the recent release of The Son of Bigfoot dvd, we might have success in having a family movie session.  We were sent a pack of family DVDs alongside Son of Bigfoot and they’re on our ‘to watch’ pile (anyone else have a rather large pile to get through?) The Son of Bigfoot comes from the creators of… Continue Reading “The Son of Bigfoot DVD release and giveaway”

Pass the pigs game – review and giveaway

pass the pigs games

Games. Love them or hate them, you can’t deny that they can be great for family life. A chance to have some fun, relax (or maybe not if everyone gets competitive), and a way to get all ages involved.  For me, the retro games are still the best – especially if you’ve got the old versions still hanging around cupboards.  It’s rare that the modern versions are as sturdy as the old ones. I love reminiscing about the old games… Continue Reading “Pass the pigs game – review and giveaway”

Keeping warm while camping with Blacks – giveaway

bedding options when camping - Bubbablue and me

Everyone loves nick nacks and intriguing gadgets, don’t they?  Of the kind you find in kitchen shops or outdoor shops?  I could spend hours in outdoor shops, and I don’t even like walking in the countryside. Ironic given I live on a farm.  (I much prefer walking round towns with everything to see than across fields, just don’t tell my OH!). Each year we have an annual camping trip with friends (mostly mums and the kids), and every time I… Continue Reading “Keeping warm while camping with Blacks – giveaway”

Making bamboo towel elephants with The Towel Shop

Folding bamboo towel elephants and a review - Bubbablue and me

A year or so before N was born I decided I wanted to get a decent shower put in the bathroom, and change it all to white.  Duly done, although it’s still a little unfinished (no blind, no splashback on the sink), and we’ve had no end of problems with the toilet so it’s rarely used.  But the shower is bliss because we have a pump.  But our towels are still a hotch potch of colours and makes. I wanted… Continue Reading “Making bamboo towel elephants with The Towel Shop”
