Fast Moving Travelator #PowerOfSoft

I’ve written quite a lot recently, about how my family is growing up, and life is changing. We seem to be on a fast paced travelator, that as I get older, speeds faster and faster.  I remember my own parents saying how ‘Children grow up so fast, they are adults in a blink of an eye’ never thinking that it could be true.

This is a really lovely video from Fairy showing just that, with a girl and her Mum through the passage of time. Continue Reading

Cineworld : Growing up with film

This week has been a constant reminder of the age gap of my children, and about how they are growing up far too fast for me.  With two girls, one just about to turn 12 (starting senior school) and one aged 5, when we go to the cinema, up until now we have always gone together.  Attempting to find something that both of the girls will enjoy.  Its worked well so far, we always visit the same cinema (Cineworld) in our local city centre – Nottingham, as I can get to it so easily.  I love the layout, and its very family friendly.

Samsung WW9000 Ecobubble : First Impressions

‘I think I’m a little bit in love’ – Me when the delivery guys pole up with the Samsung WW9000 Ecobubble to my house last week.

This washing machine looks like no washing machine I have ever used, or even seen before. It’s sleek sophisticated design just oozes style with its clean lines.  The fitters/delivery guys removed the packaging and slid it into its space in my utility, and straight away, it looked perfect, far better than my old washing machine.  No ugly buttons, or thin plastic drawers for washing powder, it looks like a power house of clothes cleaning.

It was very easy to plumb in, and took the same amount of time as the standard machine that I had before. The fittings, worked perfectly with our existing ones. Continue Reading

10 Back to School Items Your Child Can’t Do Without!

With Nia starting secondary school today, I thought I would write my ultimate list of items, that are needed when starting secondary school.  Hopefully with a few tips that you might not have thought of.

1.School Bag

Stylish but functional is key with a school bag.  We opted to go for two bags, which she’s going to change depending on how much she needs to bring with her.  Our favourite of the two has got to be this one from Fred Perry- £35
