Our Annual Father Christmas Visit

For the last four years we have visited one particular place to meet Father Christmas. It’s a local garden centre called Pughs garden village which is about a 10 minute drive from where we live, so it’s very local. Every year they have a different theme, and this has definitely become a family tradition. The theme this year was Candy Land, and a lot of effort and time is put in to making it a very special experience for the children. What makes Christmas so very special for me when you have little ones, is that they 100% believe as… [Read More]

My Christmas Wishes 2017

My birthday is at the end of November which is just too close Christmas. I guess a lot of people would be happy to have two lots of presents in under a month, but not me. My wife will start asking me what I want for my birthday and yes I am thankful that she wants to buy me presents, but I don’t really need anything and I am simply not materialistic. Yes, I love a few bits of tech, I love my iPhone X, and Smart TV, but my needs are very limited. I do like Holister clothes. My… [Read More]

Omg ! Christmas Is Nearly Here I Can’t Wait!

I am a self confessed Christmas fan. I love it! It’s that time of year when you can spoil your loved ones without fear of judgement that you might be buying too much, and if anybody does say anything, you can simply say, it’s Christmas, don’t be such a Scrooge! Of course spending within your budget is really important and don’t buy everything on credit, because that will give you a big headache in January. For all of that there are so many bargains nowadays and you can easily spoil your loved ones without breaking the bank. What is it… [Read More]

Pi-Top Laptop Review

I love any new technology, and also something that’s a bit different from the norm. So when I was asked to review the Pi-Top laptop, I couldn’t wait and let my twins loose on this awesome bit of kit. Pi-Top is a modular laptop that you build yourself, allowing you to discover a world of electronics, coding and inventing, plus many more fantastic projects. This particular Pi-Top also includes the DIY inventors kit, and Raspberry Pi, which is the brains behind the Pi-Top. I will elaborate more on Raspberry Pi later in the post. Recently my twin girls have got… [Read More]

My Pocket Money Toy Subscription Review: (Inc Unboxing Video Of Christmas Eve Box)

When I was recently approached by My Pocket Money Toy to review their boxes, I was instantly intrigued to what it was exactly. The name itself is genius. If you give your children pocket money what better way to teach them to save it up and make somebody happy by sending some gifts in the post, or having a monthly surprise for themselves with the knowledge that they have saved up to treat themselves. I think this is a great way to teach children the value of money, but also that mummy and daddy can’t buy everything for them. My Pocket… [Read More]

Christmas Is Nearly Here: Then And Now ( Memories )

Summer has gone and clocks will be going back this weekend. The leaves are falling quickly from the trees and the skyline is more often has a grey or black look to it, but don’t despair! Christmas is just around the corner! One of my favourite times of the year is Christmas, especially when you have five year old twin girls. They still believe in Father Christmas. Oh, I wish I was five to believe that this magical person delivers all the presents to all the children of the world in just one night. I have to admit I love… [Read More]

Start Saving for Christmas 2017 now!

I can’t believe that Christmas is over already! The turkey has been eaten, presents unwrapped and my front room now resembles a toy shop! Having said that though, I do have to give all credit to my wife for being super organised when it comes to Christmas shopping. She’s even made a start on saving for Christmas 2017 so I thought I’d let you know how she does it, but first, I read about Christmas savings on this website as they shared a video which was created by My Voucher Codes, and I wanted to share it with you too. I found… [Read More]

Look What We Did over Christmas 

This year has easily been the most enjoyable Christmas I have ever had. There are a couple of reasons why. One reason is I have worked less leading up to Christmas and over the Christmas period which has made the usual chore of Christmas shopping a task that is usually very rushed.  I was fortunate enough to secure a very large job just before Christmas which was decorating an entire four bedroom house inside which took about five weeks and was very well paid and this consequently allowed me more time for family over Christmas.  One of the first things… [Read More]

Christmas Day in our home 

When you have toddlers in the home Christmas Day really is the most special day in the year. We are fortunate to have four year old twins in our home and their excitement levels were totally maxed out at bedtime on Christmas Eve! I was really expecting an early start on Christmas morning, possibly 5am, so it came as quite a shock when M who was sleeping in our bed as usual, didn’t wake till 6.30am.  The night before we had a little chat to the girls about sleeping in their own beds all night as that what Santa would… [Read More]
