Teletubbies Magazine – Review

Libby has always enjoyed a magazine. She likes doing all the activities and having the one on one time to go through it together. If I’m honest, I’d never really got around to buying a magazine just for Lia. But with Libby at school, when we were offered the opportunity to review the Teletubbies magazine, I realised it was time I started doing things like this with Lia. Teletubbies Magazine – Free Gift I’m not going to lie, I’ve never known a child read a magazine before playing with the free gift. With the Teletubbies magazine, the free gift was…

Since then, she’s been sleeping through most nights, but takes a long time to get to sleep and generally wakes at least once in the evening.

Review of Stansted Airport Parking and Escape Lounge

When I travelled to the Black Forest in Germany, I decided to check out the Meet and Greet parking and Escape Lounge at Stansted airport before my flight. Both can be easily booked via Holiday Extras to help make travelling a little less stressful. I usually get the train to the airport – and worry about it being delayed. Then I stand in queues and remember how much I dislike crowds. So, the opportunity to park right next to the terminal and then relax in a lounge was too good to miss. Meet and Greet Parking at Stansted Airport As…
