One Photo Sums Up Our Summer - The Gallery 197

This week's Gallery Prompt at from the lovely Tara over at Sticky Fingers is Summer.

We have been back to school for 3 weeks now, but we had a lovely Summer. I wasn't off work as much as I'd like to have been, but we had a great time together when we were. Our Summer can be summed up in one photo. Sunshine, family fun, spending time together and smiles. This is how I will remember the Summer of 2014.

Reading, Nightmares And Understanding And Giveaway

I love to read, anyone who reads my blog knows how much I love to read. I encourage my children to read at a very young age. The boys love their books and I hope that continues, my oldest Lucas is reading skinny novels on his own now at 7 and I am doing everything I can to get him books he has an interest in. Aria is just getting into reading and loving it as you can see.

My Dream Trip

I have never been to Italy before, in fact I haven't been to a vast amount of places. The places I have been have been beautiful and like Crete and Bulgaria they were steeped in history. This is how I feel about Italy and especially Tuscany. This is top of my dream trips list. Do you have one of those? 

Dream Trips

When I've been on holiday with the children recently it's been to a caravan or self catering cottages or a lodge. Which have been amazing and we have made many memories and had such a wonderful time, ones we will never forget. You can read a lot about them on my blog. It also won't be the last of our vacations like that, we do love them, but sometimes I'd like a bit more. We've never been abroad that the children can remember and had a proper relaxing holiday. This is something I'd like to do. We are going to Disneyland soon, which I'm sure will be excellent, but next time I'd like to take them somewhere that's steeped in culture and history.

Capri-Sun Juice Drink Lunchbox Ideas

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

We are going into our third week of being back at school up here in Scotland, we are still getting back into the swing of things and the boys are tired. It takes time to settle back into the routine after such a long break and it is taking it's toll on the boys. Lunches are something that I try to plan in advance. I want them to have something healthy, nutritious and enjoyable. I needed some lunchbox ideas. That's why I thought we'd give Capri-Sun Juice Drink a go. Capri-Sun are perfect for lunch boxes and days out. 

We nipped into Tesco over the weekend to pick some up, we found the Capri-Sun in the drinks aisle. There were loads of different flavours; Orange, Blackcurrant, Summer Berries, Apple, Tropical, Apple and Cherry, Mango and Safari. I didn't know there was such a wide range until I saw them on the shelves. They also contain no artificial colours, flavours and preservatives, what's not to like. We went with Capri-Sun Blackcurrant 200ml juice drink as part of our #CollectiveBias shop. And picked up some other bits and pieces for the boys lunch at school today. I thought I'd give a bento style lunch a go. Make it a little fun.

First Tooth Fairy Visit

On Monday evening Lucas came to me to tell me his tooth was hurting. I'd taken him to the dentist last Friday for the second time as I was concerned that he'd grown too adult teeth in without his baby teeth coming out. They were almost fully in and sitting considerably far back. They are the bottom front two. The dentist says she wouldn't take them out and to keep wobbling them. Off he went.

World Photo Day - The Gallery 196

This week's Gallery Prompt at from the lovely Tara over at Sticky Fingers is World Photo Day.

Yesterday was World Photo Day and since I always have a my phone to hand with a camera, I managed to snap this picture. I love this picture. It was taken last night when Aria went through a car wash for the first time. I don't know what I'd do without a camera phone. Love her expression.

Review - KatchUp - Sharing My Moments


I have been using KatchUp now for a few weeks and I love the fact I can share photos in albums and photos with details without having to post them all over my social media accounts. I love the layout, it looks like a great scrapbook album. Its simple and easy to use. I would highly recommend it. 

What's different about Katchup? It allows you to share not only photos but videos too with your friends and family. Whether they live close by or on the other side of the world. Without the use of social media what so ever. You can email the link to those you want to share with or It stores all your photos in one place and uses a timeline to keep track and order of your photos and videos, by moments or special occasions. One additional item it has is that other family members can upload photos and videos to your event, say a wedding to it also. Keeping everything in one place, forever.
