Another Trip To A&E

Scotty at A&E

Scott has been pretty much ill in one way or another since just after his birthday. He had his operation mid November and since then seems to have picked up anything and everything going.

He spent the entire month of December with a mystery rash. We saw several doctors as it was getting worse, changing and spreading; our GP, the walk-in clinic’s nurses, out-of-hours GP, A&E Doctors (5 of them!) and each time we got varying explanations of what it might Keep reading…

Preparing To Return To Work With NCC Home Learning

As you may know, I got made redundant 2 years ago and have since been a stay at home mum/layabout! For the first while I sort of enjoyed not having to go into a job I didn’t like, my anxiety calmed down a degree because I didn’t have to put myself through it every day.

Disney Marvel Kids Interactive

Disney Marvel Kids Interactive Website

Scott has been getting more and more into Marvel characters for quite a while now. Gradually the bedcover, lunch box, t-shirts etc that would have had Thomas on have been taken over with Avengers and Spider-Man.

He has Avengers interactive figures, walkie talkies and then he started wanting me to get him some games on his tablet to play with his favourite characters in. That’s when I found the Disney Marvel Kids Interactive website.

Blue Monday Made Better

Wynsors Shoes

January 18th was Blue Monday, the day of the year that’s supposed to be the most depressing. I’d never really heard of it before, after all when I was at work the mere thought of going into a job I didn’t like was depressing every day of the year and more recently the thought of trying to convince Alexa to get up and get ready for school isn’t exactly a thrilling idea each day!

What was my Blue Monday like this year Keep reading…

Lalaloopsy Dance With Me Doll Review

Lalaloopsy Dance With Me Doll

Alexa LOVES dolls, Barbie dolls, Equestria Girls dolls, Bratz dolls, Disney Princess dolls, Baby Born, Baby Annabell…it was only a matter of time before she discovered Lalaloopsy.

With their bright colours and simple, cute ragdoll features, they are certainly different from the rest of her dolls and stand out brilliantly.

We were very kindly sent the Lalaloopsy Dance With Me Doll whose name is Peanut Big Top …and wow she’s big!


Peanut Big Top comes in simple packaging along with Keep reading…
