Unsual Gift Ideas

I'll admit I've always been one to buy my girls things like dolls and babies and it wasn't that I was trying to make them play with "girl toys" that's just what they seemed to gravitate towards.

In reality I'm a firm believer that any type of toy can be suitable for both boys and girls and even adults if that's what they want. From super heroes and Lego to Barbies and all things cute and fluffy. In this day and age there shouldn't be that divide of pink and blue.

As my children have got older their choice in the toys that they choose to pick up and play with has definitely changed. Gone are the pushchairs and princess dressing up and in their place all sorts of weird and wonderful toys.

For example they've spent hours totally engrossed with watching a slinky going down the stairs but then everyone loves a slinky right!!

Great Yarmouth History & Heritage

Great Yarmouth is bursting at the seams with history. You can enjoy its maritime heritage and architecture from Row Houses to the herring industry Smoke Houses, churches and boats.

With six Great Yarmouth museums to explore, including the award winning Time and Tide museum and the remains of two Roman forts, come and trace the fascinating Great Yarmouth heritage and history along the Medieval town wall to Fisherman's Alms Houses via the old gaol. Admiral Lord Nelson was a frequent visitor to the busy port, where wealthy merchants built their houses.

Egg & Bacon Breakfast Cups

I love breakfast. There I've said it. I'd personally eat breakfast foods not only at breakfast time but at lunch and dinner too. From porridge to cereal (mmm coco pops), there is something that appeals to everyone and what I really like is that nothing seems to complicated to make.

So today I'm going to share with you a really simple recipe which takes very little time to make and gives you time to get washed and dressed while it is cooking in the oven.

This Old Van Book Review

I was recently sent a lovely book from GMC Distribution. This Old Van (£9.99) is a brilliant take on the traditional rhyme - this old man.

LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum Review

We are huge fans of LeapPads in our house, each year they seem to get better and better and I'm always left thinking that LeapFrog surely can't top what they've made but they manage to prove me wrong and they've only gone and done it again with the LeapPad Platinum.

Sickness Bugs, Bickering Children and the Tooth Fairy

So the colder weather has well and truely arrived. Hello Autumn, waves. Now I love this time of year, Halloween, Fireworks and definitely Christmas but the past couple of weeks have been how shall I say it, trying, yep that's the word I'm going to use.

With the cold has come the rain and this seems to go hand in hand with germs and don't the kids just love to share those, I always say that they share the best things.

We've already been subjected to snotty noses galore and the dreaded sickness bug, bleugh. Don't my children know by now I don't do sick!

Gracie was the first to be struck down with it, she got off lightly, 4 hours of sickness and she was back to her normal self asking for food, lucky her!

Read With Me #39

Hello. Welcome to this weeks Read With Me. As always a big thank you to all those who linked up and commented last week. It really does mean a lot and on a side note, how are we into October already?

read with me
I've found myself reading less recently. Bogged down with my blog work, the kids school work and children being poorly.

That hasn't stopped me buying books though.

It is always worth keeping an eye out for free books over on Amazon. My kindle is packed with lots of brilliant stories that haven't cost me a penny.

It's a great way of introducing yourself to new authors, makes taking the risk of trying something different worth it.

Some of my favourite books have initially cost me nothing.
