Giveaway - Teletubbies Big Hugs CD

We have mentioned on our blog before that we are huge fans of the Teletubbies and you may have read recently that we reviewed some Tiddlytubbies which are a new addition to the Teletubbies Dome and they are so cute. As parents we have been fans since big J was little, over 15 years ago. I absolutely love that they are still going strong and they have just released a new CD called Teletubbies - Big Hugs.

Surviving Half Term With A Poorly Little J

Little J finished school on Thursday and he was so excited and ready for a week off school. It's his first half term since being in full time and he is so exhausted. I didn't think it would be as tiring for him as it has been but like everything he just takes it in his stride. On Saturday we went Pumpkin Picking which was the first of many planned activities for this week. On Saturday night just before bedtime he vomited. At first we weren't sure whether it may have been something he ate or whether it was a bug so we waited to see what would happen next.

Pumpkin Picking At Kenyon Hall Farm

Last week my social media was full with photographs of people Pumpkin Picking. It's something we have never done before so we decided to go on Saturday morning. I googled the best places to pick a pumpkin in the North West and lots of choices came up. I then researched a few that were local to us but we actually decided on Kenyon Hall Farm based on a friends recommendation. She went last year and said it was really good. I headed to the website to check out where it was and for those local it's by Warrington just off the M62. Saturday morning it was raining so I hoped not many people would want to go picking in the rain but I was wrong, it was so busy.

Scarefest At Alton Towers 2017

Last weekend we headed down towards Stoke for our October visit to Alton Towers to celebrate Scarefest. We have been going every year for as long as I can remember and each year it gets bigger and better. Now that we have little J we have to divide our time between the main park and CBeebies land however based on his no fear attitude when it comes to rides it wont be long before he will be wanting to get on the thrill rides!

Review and Giveaway - My First Scalextric

Scalextric has always been one of favourite toys, from growing up to today, there has always been at least one set around, even if it’s been stored in the loft until one of the little ones has been old enough to play.  I think I was more excited than anyone when ‘My First Scalextric’ was due to arrive for Little J to try. The box is quite compact and reminded me initially of the micro sets. We have had a couple of these over the years, transformers being the last I remember.  Included in the box are a simple track set up, controllers, adapter and 2 reasonably sized BMW cars.

Our Sainsbury's Halloween Goodies

What do you get if you pop into Sainsbury’s for bread and milk with a 4 year old? A trolley full of Halloween goodies!! Last week was the first time I have seen little J be so excited for Halloween. As we walked through the door of our local Sainsbury’s we were stopped in our tracks by a huge display of Halloween decorations. Little J instantly ran over and started pressing try me buttons on light up lanterns and dancing pumpkins. At one point he had three dancing characters on the floor watching them as they spun around. I do usually buy one or two new decorations each year to add to our collection so I had a silly idea of asking little J to choose two new items . . . he wanted everything.
