Milton Keynes: Where I live and why I love it

A few weeks before my seventh birthday my parents moved with my sister and I from Garston (just outside of Watford) in Hertfordshire, to a town called Linslade in Bedfordshire. Linslade is right next door to a town called Leighton Buzzard, in fact if you wanted to go shopping you had to go to Leighton Buzzard as that is where the high street is.

Play-Doh Fun Factory review

When I was little my sister and I would often play with Play-Doh. One of our favourite games was to pretend we worked in a Play-Doh Cake Factory, where we would make cakes and then put them in our shop window (bottom of our wardrobe) whilst we got on with serving the customers at the counter (the long desk we had in front of our bedroom window). Had we have had the Play-Doh Fun Factory, it would of been so much quicker on the cake production line!

First Strawberries of the Season

Whilst I was taking a time out (okay I was skiving off the hard work), Daddy took the Top Ender and Baby Boy out into the garden. He was going to mow the lawn and the plan was that Top Ender and Baby Boy would play in the play house and move the play things in the garden as and when Daddy needed them to be moved.

Top Ender Giggles - The gift that keeps on giving

As we were walking through the car park of the Airshow on Fathers Day, Top Ender suddenly stopped, bent down and picked up a shiny £1 coin.

Christmas Club - June

In six months time it will be Christmas Day! Yes, that thought does excite me and yes I realise what means to the view that you have of me!

The Brio Pull Along Helicopter

Yesterday Baby Boy was really excited about the postman coming; I told him that when he did there was going to be a parcel for him to open. At the slightest sound from the front door he was running to the gate to check if it was for him. When the parcel did arrive he sat waiting for me to open the outer packaging before he could delve in to see what had arrived for him... It was a Brio Pull Along Helicopter from the online store Hello Baby.

"It's a PLANE!" screamed Baby Boy as he looked in the box "PLEASE OPEN MAMMA!"

Baby Boy Giggles - Everyone has a price!

Baby Boy was sitting in his buggy as he has been running down the beach and Daddy and I needed to keep him safe (there were planes flying above us, it was a real safety precaution!) rather than worrying that a plane might land on top of us.

Things I never thought I would say in a Swimming Pool

Every Wednesday night I go swimming. Daddy and I take it in turns so that Top Ender and Baby Boy aren't left alone, because we are sensible parents. Its also easier to go swimming when Top Ender and Baby Boy are in bed as I don't have to worry about exposing myself to other patrons.

The trouble with being a Girl

What am I going to wear to CyberMummy? Sian over at MummyTips is hosting a blog hop on this very subject. I think that she should wear a LBD....

Getting to know... ME!

Sometimes when I look in the mirror I get a bit of a shock as the person that is staring back at me isn't what I think I look like. I don't mean weight wise or looks wise, but I think a bit more cartoony. In my head I look like this;

Top Ender Giggles - But it's shiny!

In Tesco, the staff are giving out Topps Match Attax cards when you spend over a certain amount (I think it is £25) and as such Top Ender has been collecting them (anything that's free is welcome) and spent the car journey home marvelling at her newest additions.

Family Fun on a Phineas and Ferb Scale!

In our house we love Disney, we especially love watching Phineas and Ferb together as a family. We love the crazy schemes that the boys get up to, the ways in which the days activities are magically cleared up by Doofenshmirtz's latest "-inator" and it has inspired us to have some family fun on a Phineas and Ferb scale. Well it inspired Top Ender first...

A new addition

Just a couple of days ago my sister was starting to think that her third daughter was never going to be born. She had grown weary of curry and pineapple, her legs were tired from the hours of walking she had undertaken and the cobbles near her house are almost flat from the wear and tear caused by driving over them for hours on end.

Potty Training Tips

Potty Training Tips are not that hard to come by. Everyone has an idea about what the best way to potty train a child and it is up to you as a parent (or carer) to decide which methods and tips suit you and your child. Of course you might be wondering why on earth I am telling you how to do something that I have no experience in, but in my family potty training is something that has been done time and time again! My Mum was a childminder for most of my life and so I have helped to potty train an awful lot of children and of course my own two darlings!
