Alphabet Dating - G is for The Greatest Showman


John and I have decided to do alphabet dating again this year though we are not doing the letters in order as it gets too complicated however we will only do a letter twice in a whole year. Our first alphabet date was to go and see The Greatest Showman in the Gallery at Odeon. I am a sucker for anything that is musical so this was a must see for me, Hugh and Zac were a pleasant bonus. John isn't so keen on this type of film even though he has sat through many musicals I have watched at home and he did watch La La Land with me that he enjoyed to some extent.

Our Sunday Photo #1 - Christmas Is Over


Happy New Year Everyone. I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year. A week ago our fireplace was covered in tinsel, twinkling lights, candles and lots of other festive decorations but now it is so bare and I don't like it. If I am honest I was desperate for the decorations to come down as after the toy explosion that was Christmas the house felt cluttered and dusty and in need of a big clean but now it just looks so miserable.

Review - Chad Valley Post Office


One of my favourite toys when I was younger was my Post Office play set. I would play with it for hours and I remember picking up leaflets and paying in slips when we visited the post office so I could add them to my play set. When Chad Valley sent us their Post Office Play Set it brought back so many memories. I knew little J would love it as he loves anything like this especially as it has lots of accessories.

Review - Chad Valley Air Pump Loader


As you may already know we are part of the Chad Valley Play Panel and this month we have been sent the Chad Valley Air Pump Loader to try out. We have said it before but we are huge fans of Chad Valley and have been since we were children so for us to be able to showcase their toys on our blog is a huge honour for us. Even before we were on the panel are home was full of Chad Valley toys and I know it will continue to be like that until little J is too old for them.

Hello Canvas - A Memory Captured


I haven't mentioned it on my blog as I just haven't got round to writing about it yet but back in April we visited Walt Disney World in Florida. It was a trip of a lifetime and something I know none of us will ever forget. I am planning on writing about our adventures and showing you all our photographs but for now you can have a sneak peek of one of our favourites as Hello Canvas have created a beautiful framed print for us to treasure forever.

Review - Shark Bite by Drumond Park


We have a new addition to our every growing games collection this month and it's Shark Bite by Drumond Park. I've mentioned it before but even though he is only 4,  little J absolutely loves playing games and playing them regularly as a family as really helped with learning to share and take turns. Little J loves 'fun' games and Shark Bite really is just that. It's a game where you have to go fishing in a shark's mouth before he snaps it shut.

Board Game Club Blogger - Pandemic




I have said before just how much we enjoy playing board games. We love playing games suitable for kids, family and adults. We love finding new games to play so when we were asked to join the Blogger Board Game Club a few months ago we had to say yes. It’s the perfect opportunity to try our new games and add to our ever growing collection. When this month’s game arrived we were excited to see it was an ‘adult’ type game. Pandemic puts you on a disease fighting team with the hopes that you will not only keep four deadly diseases at bay but also discover their cure.
