Halloween Events In And Around Newcastle For Families

I have just booked my youngest two children tickets to a Halloween party in our village and now that they are 3 and 4 I think that they are at the age where they will get into the spirit of Halloween. I have been looking at events in or around Newcastle that are on for families this Halloween and thought I would share them in case you are still looking for some ideas. I have also included an event for teens and one for adults too.

Getting The Garden Ready For Winter Time

We have been in our forever family home for almost a year now and the last year seem's to have flown over. Everyone keeps asking us if we are all settled in our home and while we are all so happy here and it has felt like 'home' within days of moving we still have so much to do to make it 'us'. We have decorating to do, the garden to sort out and believe it or not we still have boxes to unpack! 

Now that all of my children are at school and nursery school and I actually have some child-free time I have decided that it is time to tackle the house and garden in the lead-up to Christmas. I am having a huge de-clutter this week to bring a bit more organisation to our home and next week when the other half has a week off work we are planning on sorting our gardens out.

Yvolution Y Glider Refresh Deluxe Child Scooter Review

My little boy recently turned 3-years-old and like most children his age he loves being outdoors and playing on ride on's and scooters. So when we were recently sent a Yvolution Y Glider Refresh Deluxe Scooter to review he could not wait to have a scoot about on it. 

The Y Glider scooter is for children aged 3 + and can be used both indoors and outdoors and is perfect for helping little ones develop balance and coordination skills. They are perfect for first-time scooter riders as they have 'lean to steer' steering which helps little ones learn how to steer. You can also change the steering from loose to firm as children develop.

Getting The Lounge Cosy For Winter

Now that it is September and my children have returned to / started school and nursery I have decided that it is now time to get our house in order. We moved last November and we still have so much to do decoration wise and one room that I really want to make a start on is the lounge. We have a lounge/dining room in one which is fairly big but at the moment it is my least favourite room in the house and I want to change that.

August 2017

August was a lovely month for us, it is always one of my favorite months as I get the whole month with my children at home. It is always a really laid-back, lazy month a bit like July but with no school runs and routine and it is also my little boys birthday month. We had a quite August so let's have a look at what we got up to.

FurReal Chatty Charlie The Barkin Beagle Review

My children are at the age (4 & 3) where they adore all kind of animals and are fascinated with them, they have recently been asking for a pet dog but I am a bit scared of dogs (I am terrified of them after being bitten as a child). So they were utterly delighted when they were recently sent a FurReal Chatty Charlie The Barkin Beagle dog to review, which is a very cute, interactive beagle puppy dog toy.

Where Is Best To Shop For Wine?

As you all know I am getting married and we have been looking at ways to save money on our big day, one thing we have been thinking of is buying wine online to save money rather than ending up with a huge drinks bill. Buying wine online is great, you can get an enormous variety of wines delivered straight to your front door, all without having to leave the comfort of your home. However, it can be difficult to know what sites are the best for buying wine.

Which companies offer the best value for money, and which have the best delivery services? Should you buy from a supermarket like Asda or Aldi, or from a dedicated wine retailer such as Naked Wine?

These were the questions asked by members of, and the site responded by creating an annual awards competition to reveal which retailers are the best for buying wine. The surveys were sent out in the Spring of 2017 to members of the site, and now the results are in.
