LeapPad3 Learning Tablet - Review

LeapPad3 Learning Tablet

Electronic gadgets are something that children are getting more and more into, not something we had growing up, but if we did I'm sure I'd have wanted them too. It's difficult at times to get one that is right for the age of your child and making sure they are unable to access something you don't want them too. This is where Leapfrog  have it master with the LeapPad3 Learning Tablet.

Play - The Gallery 215

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

I loved playing as a child. Who didn't? I loved playing with my Sindy dolls and dolls house when in doors and outdoors I enjoyed the swing park or playing something as simple as elastics. Which yes, was elastic bands all tied together and you used to jump over them. Those were the days....

Toys and outdoor play is very different these days, with electronics and being a lot more safety conscious has reined in the freedom of outdoor play. One of the places I wish was about when I was a child was soft play. Now as an adult it's hell on earth, it's noisy and unless there is good cake, it's not that much fun. But for a child it's amazing. I love how bright and colourful our new one is. Aria had so much fun when she went to Play for the first time.

How Can My Baby Girl Be 2 Already??

Baby Girl

Yes it really is birthday central here, with all three of my children's birthday's within a month of each other! Like with all my children and yours, they grow so fast, like I said yesterday in my little boy Tyler's birthday blog post. But really? How can my baby girl be 2 already? It only seems like yesterday I was announcing my pregnancy on a Silent Sunday post. And then her birth, just a few months later. The last 2 years have been a mixed of delight, settling and all of us being in awe of our beautiful girl. You are perfect. You complete us as a family. And we love you.

Trees - The Gallery 214

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

I love pictures of trees, especially bare trees in the Winter months. They look striking, the twisted branches intertwining within the heart of the tree. The silhouettes against the sky are picturesque. These are a few I took when out sledging with the children at the weekend. Hope you like them as much as I do.

Do You Wanna Build a Snowman.....


It's been a few years since we've had enough snow to build a snowman. I love the snow. I love to how it makes everything seem silent. I love how it makes everything bright. I love how it makes me feel. It's calming, it's empowering and it's peaceful. It's like being in a giant snow globe that's been shaken and is all glittery and beautiful. A white blanket of cold, beautiful ice, covering the world and silencing anything in it's wake.

Me - The Gallery 213

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

This is probably my least favourite topic to talk about. I think I am an honest, kind and friendly person. I'm not anything special, but I try to be a good mum and my family is my world. I love my children and husband with all my heart. I have a good career in the IT industry and love to blog and just write. I would go out of my way to help others and much rather talk about others than myself. However, I feel like a failure at these things recently. This the way I feel. I have been struggling a lot over the last while with anxiety and have an internal struggle on a daily basis about whether I am a being a good mum, wife, friend, etc. I am trying to do something about it, but tell me I'm not alone? I feel like I'm crazy.
