Pop Goes Your Name - a review

Pop Goes Your Name - a personalised music CD #review for kids

Monkey loves playing his CD’s in my car when we are off on our adventures.  He still loves Nursery Rhymes and sometimes I get away with playing one of my CD’s, but it’s always nice to try something new.  When I heard about Pop Goes Your Name, who offer personalised pop music CD’s, I knew I had to investigate.

POP Goes Your Name is a family run and inspired company founded by musicians & parents…

Personalised Christmas Cards

I was recently approached by Stress Free Print to see if I’d like to order some personalised Christmas cards.  Yes, I really do like to be organised!  Having a son with a birthday in December, you do tend to plan ahead at this time of year.  I’ve made up photo Christmas cards in previous years where I’ve bought the frames and inserted photos of Monkey looking suitably festive in a Christmas hat.…

Giving blood for the first time

Giving blood for the first time #blooddonation

Enjoying family time in Orlando – for the kid in all of us

I’ve a few friends who have either recently returned from enjoying family time in Orlando or are set to jet off soon.  The USA is somewhere I’ve never actually been too, although Daddy P went to Orlando some years ago.  I’m sure we’ll take Monkey at some point in the future.

Dinosaur Pooping - what fun!

Dinosaur Pooping - what fun! #bookreview

We were recently asked by Mumsnet if we’d like to review The Dinosaur that Pooped the Past!  Monkey loved the Dinosaur that Pooped Christmas as you may recall from last year. Being even more dinosaur obsessed this year, and of an age when ‘toilet humour’ absolutely rocks – yes please!

Monkey was really pleased when he received two lots of dinosaur pooping fun and mayhem to read!

The B&W Photography Project Week 12 #bwphotoproject

The B&W Photography Project Week 12 with PODCast, and for this week I’m using a photograph I took in London last weekend.

The B&W Photography Project Week 12

This photo is taken from Tower Bridge, I love the idea of the old and the new side my side on the Thames.  It’s interesting how the steel hull looks white in this photograph rather than the grey that it is in Technicolor.
