I have been blogging now for three years and I will be honest and say that it has been challenging, as I have been bringing up my three young children in that time too. My blog has very much been a hobby all of these years, which I have been lucky enough to earn a small income from. However, thing's are about to change soon as my daughter is off to school and my son is off to nursery school, meaning for the first time since I started this blog I will have proper childfree time to dedicate to it.

Being a mum to a teenage daughter I know just how hard it can be finding days out that interest them, long gone are the days where they are happy with a couple of hours at soft-play or playing in the garden. So I have compiled a list of places here in the North East that sound perfect for keeping teen's entertained this summer.

Join Us For A Mickey And The Roadster Racers & Minnie Happy Helpers Twitter Party #MickeyandMinnieToys
My two and four-year-olds are huge Disney Junior fans, it is their go to TV channel and they have long been fans of Mickey and Minnie Mouse. When Mickey and the Roadster Racers show came out earlier this year they were instantly hooked and became big fans of the show, watching it regularly. So when we were recently sent a huge bundle of Mickey and the Roadster Racers and Minnie's Happy Helpers toys from Flair they were overjoyed and could not believe their luck!

My four-year-old daughter Sophia is such a girly girl who adores playing with dolls, so when we were asked if we would like to review Lottie dolls I knew they would be perfect for her. Lottie dolls are different to other dolls in that they are designed to look like children and not adults, they have the body shape of a regular 9-year-old, they wear no makeup, jewellery or heels and look like normal children who stand on their own two feet. I love this as I am all for keeping my children innocent for as long as possible and I am not a fan of unrealistic tiny waisted, big boobed play dolls.

Every month I write a post of things that I have loved from the month gone by, a happy list to look back on. Last month was an amazing month for us, this month less so as we have had some rather big unexpected bills and broken appliances to deal with. However, we still had some nice moments in July so here is a look at some of the thing's I have been loving from the month gone by.

Anyone who knows me will know that I am a huge bookworm, I adore reading and have loved nothing more than getting lost in a good book since I was a child. I remember my imagination growing with each bedtime story I read, I was always keen to discover new books and the adventures within them. Now I am a parent I love reading stories to my own children, watching them be amazed by books and seeing their little imaginations growing with each tale is amazing to watch. I really hope they grow to love books and reading just as much as I do.
