Under The Sea Party - Feed The Shark & Fishing Fun

I tried to think of more games that we could play at Bob’s Under The Sea party. I had lots of craft ideas but I thought it would be nice to have some games that they could access independently too. I had an idea for a feed the shark game. I drew a shark on a big cardboard box and cut out his mouth and around his fins so they stuck out. Bob helped me to paint him and then [click here to read on]

Wedding Preparations

My friend is getting married next year and I am honoured to be a bridesmaid! I have only been a bridesmaid once before. It was a wonderful day but, as I was 39 weeks pregnant, I couldn’t fully let my hair down. I am looking forward to dancing the night away and drinking prosecco this time around. It has been exciting being involved in the planning. My friend looked stunning when we went wedding dress shopping and I am looking [click here to read on]

Dad's Flying Lesson

For my dad’s 60th birthday we wanted to get him something really special! He is a fabulous dad and a wonderful grandad so we wanted to spoil him! He loves planes and he used to make aeroplanes as a career. My sister suggested a flying lesson and I thought that this was a great idea! We found a flying experience in Blackpool. It was much cheaper than booking a gift experience! We booked it as a surprise but we checked [click here to read on]

Splashing's Review

Bob loves making videos and she also loves watching You Tube! The other day as she was watching an unboxing video she asked. ‘Mummy, do you think I could be on You Tube one day?’ When I told her that she was already on You Tube she was amazed! I thought that she knew! Goodness knows what she thought I did with her videos. Maybe she thought we were just playing at video making. We watched a few of her [click here to read on]
