A breathtaking evening at the Chinese State Circus

There aren’t many evenings out that are fun for the whole family. Entertainment after a certain time tends to be aimed at adults and whilst children are often welcome, it’s not necessarily much fun for them. One clear exception is the circus. And as circuses go, the Chinese State Circus is by some distance the best I’ve ever seen. About the Chinese State Circus The Chinese State Circus is world famous for skilful performances that wow the audience. The team comprises 30 acrobats, jugglers, aerial artists and Shaolin Warriors. Each act is a few minutes long before moving on to a…

A review and giveaway of Meg Heath bespoke dog leads and collars

Bubbles is one of the most incredible dogs I’ve ever met. She’s totally submissive to other dogs, obedient to us and even does as she’s told by the children. She’s the perfect running companion and a fabulous playmate for both Pluto and the girls. She knows basic commands and always comes when she’s called. Her beautiful nature is likely to be due to her breed – she’s a crossbreed but mainly Staffordshire bull terrier. And along with the incredible attributes her breed possess, she has also inherited the one bad habit. She pulls terribly on the lead. So did I want…

Cheerz memory box review and giveaway

I take photos every single day. I post twice a day to Instagram and almost every photo is taken on the day I post it. I share my Thursday photo of the girls every week without fail, and yet I’m awful at remembering to get photos printed. And really, printing them is what photography is all about. Keeping the memories and looking through them in years to come. So when Cheerz got in touch and asked me to review one of their memory boxes, I knew it was going to be life-changing. About Cheerz Cheerz make it easy to print your photos. And…

What2buy4kids classic games collection 5 in 1

For homework this week, Libby could choose between a number of activities. One of them was to play a board game with the family. This got me thinking about the fact that we don’t play board games enough. We have snakes and ladders but Libby is ready for something a bit more advanced. So when What2buy4kids got in touch and asked me to review something from their website, I decided it was time to teach the girls to play drafts. About What2Buy4Kids I love the ethos behind What2Buy4Kids. It is a children’s gifts website that mum Lisa started because she wasn’t happy with…

Ben and Holly Live at Malvern Theatre

Since Libby started school, I’ve felt like I’ve had very little quality time with her during the week. When I pick her up we’re always heading to a dance or drama class. Even on days when we come straight home, I’m rushing to get dinner ready or trying to get some work done while the girls play. So when we were asked if we wanted to go and see Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom live on stage, I jumped at the chance. Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom Live on Stage Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom is a childhood television staple. There…
