Toy Review: BRIO Wooden Doll Pram

Well that 'C' word is fast approaching us now we are more than halfway through October, so I've been looking into what toys will be good to get for my son, niece and nephew.

My niece is 18 months old and I came across this really cool Wooden Pram by BRIO. Most prams I've seen tend to be plastic and very girly, whereas this is unisex and is built to last through the rams and bumps my niece would do on a daily basis.

Competition: Win A Vremi Espresso Maker and Wine Preserver

Who else likes proper coffee and wine?! Most of the parent population I imagine!

Vremi Espresso Maker and Wine Preserver

I was sent the Vremi Espresso Maker and Wine Preserver and loved them so much I'm now giving away a set for one of you lucky readers.

The Vremi Espresso Maker is great as it's a small kit which enables you to make classic italian espressos in less than five minutes. It makes six espresso shots, and features an easy grip handle. You can use it on a gas or electric hob, which means you can even take it camping!

We Are Celebrating #ThunderbirdsDay Today!

Pretend to Bee has launched a FAB (haha get it?!) new Thunderbirds costume range for kids to celebrate Thunderbirds Day which happens to be today!

The Thunderbird Dressing Up Range from Pretend to Bee

My son has got the Alan Tracy Thunderbirds costume, but you can also get Scott and Virgil too!

The costume is clearly of high quality as it's been made well and thankfully has a detachable sash and sound piece, to avoid me breaking these in the washing machine! Costumes have to be cleaned often in my home because Chunk manages to get the most bizarre stains on everything.

It's a 100% polyester all-in-one suit which has easy velcro fastenings. It has padded armour shoulder pads and the sound chip says the classic Thunderbird countdown whenever it's pressed. I've even showed this off on Instagram as you can see below...

Out With The Old And In With The New

I've been through so many changes recently, including getting rid of an abusive partner, completing a year-long course in community development, dealing with a difficult depression and anxiety episode and losing weight!

After all of this I feel like having a life declutter, as some of these experiences have really shown me who cares about me, and what I want to get from life while I can.

I've made a start by decluttering my home, as this tends to make my mind feel a lot clearer!
Lots of things have been taken to charity shops and clothes banks, but I've also tried to sell a few bits to try to save up some much needed cash for Christmas.

Whilst I love going to car boots to get bargains, I'm not up for getting up at the crack of dawn and loading up my car to do one myself, so that's where eBay has come in handy!

All three of these items sold straight away!
Some things are easy to sell locally, but others are a bit more niche, such as the guinea pig walking leads, new hair straighteners and a child's wet-suit I have, so I bunged them up for ten days on eBay and sold all of them!

Single Parent Linky is BACK!

After a year off the Single Parent Linky is back!

This is where single parent bloggers across the world can add links to any of their recent posts to show off.

It can be posts of ANY TOPIC, as it's about showing off your favourite posts that have been published recently.

All I ask is that any bloggers who add links simply comment on at least two other bloggers' posts who have added their posts to the linky.

I've added a couple of mine to start it off.
