My Sunday Photo - An Unexpected Bill To Pay

Like most we watch the pennies in January as we are usually all spent up after Christmas. Yesterday we were on our way to the woods for a nice winter walk when the check engine light appeared on my car. I was on the motorway so I panicked as every light on my dashboard lit up. I managed to get the car to our local garage who advised me to leave it there so they could take a little look.

Our 2016 Project 366 - Days 17-23

This week has been full of sickness and vomiting. Both big and little J have had a strange tummy bug which not only made them both vomit but it lasted almost all week. When they weren't being sick they felt okay but then it struck again. Anyway I am pleased to say it's passed now, well we hope it has

Here is a look at our week.

DisneyLife Review

This month we have been trying out a new subscription box called DisneyLife. I first noticed it just before Christmas when it popped up in our local Disney Store. As it was Christmas and a little manic I didn't stop to look what it was. If you haven't heard of DisneyLife let me tell you a little bit about it first.

When A Celebrity Retweets Your Tweet

 It's only recently I have started to use Twitter properly and it's by far my favourite of all the social media channels. I love how fast it is and that you get an actual reply from people when you tweet them. It's a quick way to get in touch with a friend, speak to a company or even tweet a celebrity. Am I the only one who gets excited when a celebrity retweets your tweet?

I don't really tweet celebrities mainly because I don't have anything to say to them, but on the odd occasion I have tweeted a few. If I was going a concert to see a band or solo artist I will send a tweet or if I have seen a tweet from them I have replied.

Wednesday Weigh In Week 2

My first week of healthy eating and exercising didn't go to well. I am still in Christmas mode and there is still lots of chocolate and snacks lurking in the cupboard. I really found it hard to stop the evening snacking too and found myself in the chocolate bag a few times whilst watching Big Brother.

Movie Night In

It can be difficult sometimes to get together as a family to watch a movie. As there is such a big age difference between the boys and we have all different interests it's usually impossible to choose a film we all will enjoy. Luckily we do all have one genre in common and that's Disney.

Teletubbies Toys Review

You may have read last week that a very special and exciting box turned up. Inside was a selection of the new Teletubbies toys range and we were chosen to try them out. Teletubbies was such a big part of big J life when he was growing up and I am so pleased they are back now that little J is a toddler. When it came to opening the box we were so excited to find out what was inside. Little J was jumping around when he saw all the coloured tissue paper inside the box, it was like Christmas.

Our 2016 Project 366 - Days 1-9

Last year I started Project 365 with the best intentions to snap a photograph every day of the year and show them off weekly on my blog, I failed. I think I managed half the year which is good I suppose but not good enough. I am absolutely determined this year to complete the full 365 days (actually its 366 as this year is a leap year).

So heres to hopefully 366 photos representing our 2016.

1/366 - What a lovely way to start the year with a flower drawn on the Magna-doodle by little J. Followed by "I love you Mummy, loads and loads and loads and loads" so cute.

Little J Loses His Favourite Bing Bunny

Went we went to Cyprus last Summer little J took a handful of toys. His Winnie the Pooh taggy which he has had since he was born, some cars, his doctors kit and his Bing Bunny. Now if you read my blog you will know that Bing Bunny hadn't been with us very long but he instantly became a favourite and became little J's bedtime buddy along with taggy. When little J was helping to pack his suitcase both Bing and taggy were the first things in the Trunki.

This was the last time little J and Bing napped together after lunch, the next day we lost him.

Alton Towers Rollercoaster Restaurant

As you already know we are massive fans of Alton Towers. We are Merlin Pass Holders so are regulars at the theme park each year and it is very special to us as Daddy proposed to me there. We are always looking out for news and gossip about any new rides and attractions. I have to say I was a little shocked when I recently read the headline online 'Alton Towers to open a Rollercoaster Restaurant.

Paradise Island Golf Cheshire Oaks Review

We are big fans of mini golf and one of our favourites is Paradise Island Golf at Trafford Centre. When we were invited to try out the new Paradise Island Golf at Cheshire Oaks we were so excited. We decided to go in-between Christmas and New Year. It was a perfect chance for us to get up and about after enjoying Christmas.

My Sunday Photo - It's 2016 Which Means New Diary

I love receiving a new diary for Christmas, it's a tradition now as Daddy has bought me one since I can remember. It's also a tradition that I give up writing in it around February time when the novelty wears off and it becomes a chore. This year is different I WILL write in my gorgeous 2016 diary. It will be filled with notes, ideas, thoughts, dates, events and anything else I can think of. It will be both  used for personal and my blog and I can't wait.

Our New Year Bucket List

I hadn't thought about writing a bucket list before as I thought a bucket list was things you wanted to do before you die. However, I have noticed that some people have seasonal bucket lists on their blogs. They write down all of the things they want to do in the following three months. We have had a little think and there are a few things we want to do so I've decided to write them down.

Teletubbies Toy Delivery

When big J was growing up Teletubbies dominated our TV and also big J's toy box. He absolutely loved Teletubbies and had lots of Teletubbies toys including talking ones, a phone, books, even a Noo Noo that moved along the floor. When I heard that Teletubbies were making a comeback I was so excited because little J is just at the age now were he enjoys watching a little TV and I know he will love Teletubbies just like his big brother did. On Christmas Eve we received a huge white box, it was our Teletubbies toy delivery.
