Under The Sea Party - Peg Doll Mermaids & CD Turtles

I can’t believe I am still writing posts about Bob’s Under The Sea Party! We have had a Trolls party since then but I am so behind! My New Year’s Resolution should be to try harder. We had lots of lovely craft activities. I have already written about the Jiggly Jellyfish and the Seashell Wands and I will tell you about the Flounder Balloons soon. We also made Peg Doll Mermaids and CD Turtles. The Peg Doll Mermaids were easy [click here to read on]

Renting is a good option, and for those of us trying to get on the property ladder – if living with our parents isn’t an option – it’s the only choice we have until we finally scrape together that fabled deposit.  Renting a property can be exciting at first, and wonderful when you move your things in for the first time.

How Does a Lack of Sleep Affect Your Mind and Health

I have spent the last 6 years in a sleep deprived haze! (Thanks Bob & Bow!)

I wanted to sell something that I loved and I also wanted to include some things that I made.  After a day out on a Woodland Fairy walk at Studfold Trails I knew what my shop would be!

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie Review & Giveaway

Bob has been wanting to watch the Captain Underpants movie since she watched the trailer on You Tube ages ago. The trailer made her howl with laughter when Captain Underpants sang, ‘Tra la laaaaa!’ The film is about two friends, George & Harold, who spend their time making comic books. One day they hypnotise their nasty principal into thinking he is the dimwitted superhero from their comic books, named Captain Underpants.  This film is hilarious and Bob loved it!
