Teangi Shampoo and Conditioner Review

With the kids well and truly back at school, I know a big worry for me is head lice. A new survey by tea tree hair care brand Teangi actually revealed that I'm not alone, 60% of parents were worried about sending their kids back to school because of this very reason.

Teangi asked 2000 parents of school aged children what they dread the most about their child's return to school. Six out of ten parents agreed that they idea of dealing with head lice was the worst implication of going back through those school gates!!!

Some of the reasons :

* Embarassment
* Passing around to other family members
* Having to use messy treatments

I was recently sent some of Teangi's shampoo and conditioner to try.

Make Someones Day With CardNest

Now I'm someone that likes to be organised, especially when it comes to things like birthdays and Christmas, I like the personal touch, none of this eCard business. I tend to buy my cards in bulk, just incase an occasion happens to arise. However there are times when I have forgotten and I've been left panicking. CardNest have come to the rescue.

T is for …. Time

This weeks alphabet project sees us reaching letter number 20, that's letter T. The first thing that sprung to mind apart from a cup of tea was time.

Time is something that plays a huge part in all of our lives.

Be it telling the time on a clock or watch.

Or when using a figure of speech saying that time just seems to fly by and belive me it really does.

Read With Me #39

Hey there. Welcome to this weeks Read With Me. This week I've not only enjoyed reading a couple of books in the peace and quiet of my bedroom but I have also loved sitting down and reading with my children both altogether and one on one with each of my daughter's.

read with me
My personal favourite book this week was by one of my favourite authors, Rebecca Donovan.

Her latest release, What If, is a beautifully written story which is truly heartwarming, filled with many layers of emotion, it keeps you guessing until the end!!

My kids decided their favourite book was I Want To Be A Witch by Ian Cunliffe, I will have a review of this up on the blog soon so keep and eye out for it.

And the post I recommend you read from last weeks link up is over on Carole Finds Her Wings.  Carole recommends one of her favourite series from her childhood, Animal Ark. It sounds perfect for children and I think I may have to look into buying some for my kids so that I can get a chance to read them too!!

The Dinosaur That Pooped The Past Review

I was recently sent a copy of the Dinosaur That Pooped The Past to review from the Mumsnet team along with one of the previous books in the series The Dinosaur That Pooped The Planet.

the dinosaur that pooped books
Written by two members of the McFly, Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter (major fan here!!) These two have managed to create a series of books are suitable for children of all ages (and adults too).

Once upon a time…

Danny and the Dinosaur flew back through history on a time travelling swing! Now they're hanging out with some new dino friends, but there's a rumbling and this time it's not Dinosaur's tummy; it's a volcano about to erupt! 

Can Dinosaur poop them all out of the past?
