Review - 1:16 RC Ultimate Lightning McQueen


You may have read a few months ago that we headed to the cinema to see Disney Pixar Cars 3. It was our first ever visit to the cinema with Little J but he loves Cars so much we knew it would be the perfect first time experience for him. As such a huge fan of Cars and Lightning McQueen I knew little J would be thrilled when he opened the 1:16 RC Ultimate Lightning McQueen.

How To Deal With Bullying

Being a parent (especially to a teenager) the words 'bully' and 'bullied' frighten the life out of me. I'd like to think that we have brought big J up well and I know him enough to know he would never be capable of being a bully. However no matter how well you have brought your child up there is always the chance they could be bullied.

Getting Your Body Summer Ready

As soon as the weather starts to get a little warmer I start thinking about my body and how I can get it ready for Summer. Being overweight doesn't bother in the Winter as loose leggings and baggy jumpers hide my lumps and bumps, during the warmer months there is nowhere for them to hide. I have been doing Slimming World which I am enjoying, I feel like I have lots more energy and I am definitely eating healthier now than ever. The thing that worries me is that since having the boys my tummy definitely has some stubborn fat that just does not want to shift. I recently came across an advert for CoolSculpting which is a Fat Freezing Treatment. I thought it sounded crazy but I was intrigued and after reading about it in depth it is something I think I would consider.

Looking Back - Big J's Birth Story


It was quite a surprise when I found out I was pregnant with big J. I was 21 at the time and although having children was definitely something we wanted we hadn’t been trying. Finding out I was pregnant was definitely a nice surprise and I think I ‘Grew up’ very quickly after seeing the positive on the pregnancy test. John and I had only been together a year but it felt right and we were extremely excited.

Enjoying The Warm Weather Plus The Chance To Win An Amazon Voucher


Summer will soon be here and if you have been lucky enough to experience the warm weather recently then you will know a little bit of sun puts everyone in a good mood. We definitely feel much better when we can be out and about having lots of fun in the garden. We've had lots of play days in the garden, paddling in the pool and playing with little J's new garden toys he got for his birthday. This has been the first time ever I have enjoyed playing in the garden and it's all because we had astro turf fitted last year. Its amazing and I would definitely recommend it.

Little J's Visit To Finch Farm

A few weeks ago we received a letter from the Everton Academy inviting little J to a fun day at Everton's training ground, Finch Farm. Little J was more than excited and has been counting down the days till he could go and show off his football skills. He absolutely loves football and will go out in the garden most nights with his big football practising his strikes and also his goalie skills.

Top Tips When Booking A Holiday


As soon as Christmas was over we started talking about a Summer holiday for 2018. As we went to Walt Disney World in April last year we didn't have a Summer holiday and the 6 weeks dragged and I really wish we had booked something even if it was just a week somewhere. Usually we would have something booked by now but for one reason or another we haven't so over the last week we have been trawling the Internet for possible destinations. We have spent every night for hours looking for something suitable but we still haven't found anything. I have however gathered a few top tips when booking a holiday which could help you save unnecessary time.

Our Sunday Photo #2 - Tightening The Purse Strings


January is my least favourite month because nothing good happens in January. Christmas has been and gone, you usually feel the need to diet after over indulging at Christmas and money is tight due to over spending. This month we definitely need to tighten our purse strings so we have been opting for winter walks and staying away from January sales. To be honest the last two weekends have been lovely we visited Tatton Park last week, and today we fed the ducks and little J rode his scooter around the park. Days like today don't cost anything but are so much fun. It's nice to cut back every now and then and it's good to remember that most children just need a large open space to run around in with their ball, bike or scooter and days like that usually come free.
