Review: ZooMoo Preschool Children’s TV Shows And App

As Toddler L gets older, I’m having to carefully consider what she watches on TV. She’s at an age where her little sponge-like brain absorbs everything – and I mean everything. I wasn’t too fussed when she was younger, but I’m now well aware that things like TV are big influences on her tiny mind. […]

Seven Seas Omega-3 Experiment: Final Results

Earlier this year, I wrote about the first stage of an experiment we were taking part in with Seven Seas. This involved having our bloods analysed to find out the fatty acid composition, with particular emphasis on the omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) within the body’s red blood cells. We got some really interesting results […]

Review: My Little Pony The Movie Seashell Lagoon Playset & Canterlot Castle Playset

As Toddler L gets older, she – and I – are discovering new children’s TV shows to watch. Something we’ve dabbled in over the last few months is My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, which we watch on Netflix. This was sparked by my folks who bought her a Princess Cadence toy for her birthday. Obviously […]

Review: A Family Visit To Crieff Hydro And Action Glen, Perthshire

Earlier in the summer, I received an email from a place called Crieff Hydro asking us if we wanted to come and visit. The place looked incredible and I instantly wanted to say “yes”, but having seen that it was 450 miles away up in Perthshire, it didn’t seem likely that it’d happen. If only […]

Review: Beko Kitchen Appliances (Toaster, Kettle, Bean To Cup Coffee Machine)

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day – whoever ‘they’ are. I don’t know whether that’s true or not, but I do know that I enjoy breakfast. Although our standard weekday breakfast is usually cereal, weekdays are a bit more interesting – take my Huevos Rancheros recipe, for instance. The reality though […]

Review: Britax-Roemer DUALFIX Extended Rear Facing Car Seat

Since becoming a dad, I’ve found that a car seat is one of the most used baby and toddler products we’ve owned. With things like toddler classes, nursery, days out and visiting family, it’s hardly surprising that Toddler L has rocked up a huge amount of hours sat in the back of a car. As […]

Celebrating The #SmallVictories With Vauxhall Astra

Do you ever have one of those crappy days which are totally transformed by something  small and insignificant happening? You know the stuff I mean – think things like finding a fiver in a coat you’ve not worn in a while, getting the last loaf of bread from the shop or your toddler filling her […]

Review: A Family-Friendly Activity Holiday To Hampshire

For the third year running, we were invited by Hampshire’s Top Attractions to visit Hants for a short break. Having never really holidayed in the county prior to a few years ago, it’s now somewhere we instantly think of when it comes to family staycations. As Toddler L has just turned three, the emphasis of […]
