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.

I am a HUGE Disney fan and love Disney on Ice. I went there for my birthday when I was about 12 and loved it.

The Gallery - At Home With The ....

This week's Gallery Prompt at from the lovely Tara over at Sticky Fingers is At Home With The....

I have loved having the boys At Home With The Mann's since the schools finished for the Summer at the end of June. Even though I've had to work some of it we've had a lot of fun together. I'll do another post on what we've been up to soon.

I cannot believe that Lucas is now going into Primary 4. I'm so proud of him, he's come on leaps and bounds since he started school. His confidence has grown and his reading, writing and maths skills are excellent. Keep up the good work and can't wait to see how you grow this year now you are no longer in infants. His teacher thinks he are such a lovely, hard-working and polite wee boy that she wants a full class of Lucas's.

Here's Lucas when he first started school:-

Planning A Theatre Trip To London With Kids

I love going to the theatre, it's one of my favourite things to do. I recently saw Wicked in Glasgow, which was excellent, but it was nothing compared to the excitement of seeing it in the West End. I remember heading down to London with my husband for the first time and we took in a show, which was Wicked and it was a wonderful memorable night. I would love to take the kids to London. There is so much to do and see and we would have to take in a show. 

Living in Glasgow we would have to go by train, this would have to be booked in advance, and hopefully save us some money, but think of the fun we could have travelling down. Then I'd book a hotel and theatre tickets through somewhere like Hotel Direct. When they are booked together you seem to get some really good deals.

Review - Who Do You Think You Are? Story

Who Do You Think You Are

I've been interested in genealogy and researching my past for many year now. I think being an only child and not having a big family encouraged me to find out more about where I came from and the family I had. I have found over 100 people on my family tree, but have a long way to go. If your like me I'm sure you will have watched the TV show Who Do You Think You Are? This show is about celebrities finding out about their past. Who Do You Think You Are Story have created a fantastic website which is brought to you by Find My Past and I have been finding out more about my family history on it.

KatchUp - Sharing Moments in a Safe Environment

We are always sharing photos, videos, etc of our children, ourselves, or whatever we are up to on social media. But, how do we share photos with friends and family that we don't want available to the rest of the world? KatchUp has the answer.

Like a lot of people I have relatives on the other side of the world and want to be able to share photos of the children and our precious memories, but don't want everyone to see them. Don't get me wrong social media is excellent, I love it, but there is a time for privacy when sharing moments. This is where KatchUp comes in. I've been trying KatchUp and will be posting my full review on it soon.

Forget Daddy Cool – Grandparents Are the Coolest

Think back to your childhood. How many memories do you have of your grandparents? For many people, their grandparents were some of the most influential people in their lives. There appears to be a strong bond between grandparents and grandchildren. It’s one that has existed for centuries and a lot of studies have been carried out to determine why the relationship is so unique. It appears the relationship is just as beneficial to the grandparents as it is to the grandchildren. These days’ grandparents do a lot of cool things such as playing on sites such as Online Casino Blue Book. There’s certainly no denying that they can be pretty cool!
