Pet Parade is a popular range of collectable toy pets - and they are super cute. Summer's seen the adverts and has asked for them for Christmas, so when we received a set for review, she was super excited. It's our first Pet Parade and she wasn't disappointed.
If you are a regular reader you will know that we are currently having a lot of building work done to the house - I've gone on about it enough. We had an extension built, then we had walls knocked down, steals put in, and now we are currently having the walls plastered. Next, it will be the garage conversion.
Summer just started full-time school and she is loving it. She gets a bit teary eyed when I hug her goodbye and wish her a good day, she squeezes me and tells me she misses me. I then wave her off and leave her to her day. She loves learning and she loves being around her friends, so school really suits her.
Over the past year, I've been giving 'grow you own at home' a try and I think everyone should. I love using herbs when cooking and many times I go to the supermarket to buy fresh herbs and they don't have the one I want, thus, I embarked on growing my own - so much more convenient and super easy to do (although, a few of my herbs did die off, but it is a learning process).
It's a game of strategy for two players, played on an 8×8 grid board. Included are 64 game pieces called discs, each disc has a white side and a black side. Players take turns by strategically placing disks on the board with their assigned color facing up. The game begins with 4 discs placed in a square in the middle of the grid, 2 facing white side up and 2 facing black side up, diagonal with each other.
I love finding products that make life easier and tidier. I always try and organize my things so that I know where they are and how to find them, there is nothing more frustrating than needing an item and for the life-of-me, I can't find where you placed it. I love any item that helps me get organized (storage - I love storage solutions), in addition, a tool that helps keep things safe, i.e. like the hair straighteners, when using them I worry that I may burn something (done it before). With Holster Brands they design products for these needs - organisation and safety - Perfect, right?!

Little Alf the mini Shetland pony who has dwarfism is super tiny but super cute. He lives in the North Yorkshire Dales with his human mum, Hannah Russel, and is often up to mischief, and he's full of character, thus, Hannah created a book series based on Little Alf and his adventures.
