Forget Your FoMo Fears With Netflix And Have a Break

Last week was National Parents Week, which ran from the 20th-26th October this was started to highlight that in fact parents need a break. Yes we do. What do you do when you need a break? I enjoy reading and I also enjoy catching up on some American TV shows, these are my guilty pleasures. But I have FoMo, what to do? FoMo means Fear of Missing Out. I need not fear for I have Netflix and I can sit down with my husband and catch up on all the latest TV shows and find some new ones.

Light - The Gallery 206

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

This weekend we did the whole Halloween thing in preparation for Friday as I am working all week. We made our costumes, mine too as I'm helping at the school Halloween party on Friday. We carved our pumpkins and we made pumpkin lanterns from old jam jars as part of our recycling project for school. I thought these were perfect for the prompt light.

Review - Super Lottie

Super Lottie

Earlier on this year Arklu the makers behind Lottie Dolls launched a competition to end the dearth of female superhero toys and allow a child to design their own Superhero costume for Lottie. Not only that, see their costume come to life. Cool huh! Now if you read my last Lottie dolls post, you'll know how much I LOVE these dolls and what they stand for. So I was delighted to see the winning Super Lottie outfit independently judged by the Brave Girls Alliance and designed by a six year old girl called Lily from Ohio in the USA.

Review - Asda Wooden Doll House And Furniture Set

Asda Wooden Doll House

Everyone loves wooden toys don't they? They look classic, well made and something you can keep for many years. Well I think so. We don't have a huge amount of them, due to expense of them, but the ones we do have are well played and excellent. However, Asda have brought out their own range of Asda wooden toys, which not only look great, well made and something you'd want to keep forever, but the prices are fantastic. We tried out the Wooden Doll House and Furniture set for starters.

Talent - The Gallery 205

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

I wouldn't say this is a talent, but I do love to dance and recently I've went back to tap class.  I used to dance on stage up until I fell pregnant with Lucas, so I gave up around 8 1/2 years ago. I loved Ballet, but haven't found an adult class yet. It is one of the things I really enjoy doing, so this is my Talent for this week. Do dance?

Review - Disney on Ice Celebrates 100 Years of Magic

Disney On Ice Celebrates 200 Years

A few weekends ago we went to see Disney on Ice Celebrates 100 Years of Magic, which if you want to go and I would highly recommend it, you can find out dates on my Disney on Ice post. We met up with Yummy Mummy Flabby Tummy aka Laura and her gorgeous family at Braehead Area and went to watch Disney perform the ultimate magic on ice and watch our children's faces light up. Even the older ones who are thinking they are a little too cool to love Disney. Well they did and we have the pictures to prove it.

HP Instant Ink - The Automated Ink Replacement Service

Now working in an IT company, you'd think I'd be all about paperless office and all that, well I'm not. I don't print what I don't have to, but I do love to print. I print anything from work stuff, to colouring in pages to photos of the kids. I love a good printer and one that doesn't cost the earth in ink. There is nothing worse than needing or wanting to print something off, whether it's for homework or just a stunning picture you took, only to find out you've ran out of ink. Frustrating! This is where HP Instant Ink comes in to play. You don't have to worry about ever running out of ink.
