I’ll start this post by telling you that I am no car expert and I write this post totally from the experience of a Mum who loves a nice car to drive who has been driving for over 30 years. I actually don’t have a car myself because I just don’t need one for day to day living, everywhere I need to go is within walking distance and if I do need to go somewhere then I can take my partner to work and have his car. So it was a real treat to have a nice shiny Peugeot 308 GT Line delivered to my door for a week during the summer holidays so I could take the kids out and have some fun. Read more
Boo and I are huge stationery fans, every time we go shopping we always head to the notebooks and pens before anything else! We can’t think of a better way to treat ourselves to some nice new stationery items than a stationery surprise box!

Boo has already claimed most of the items much to my disappointment 😉 Read more

The lovely people at Glasses Direct contacted me recently to see if I’d like to choose a pair of their glasses to review, of course I jumped at the chance. I love having different pairs of glasses but as I was really in need of a pair of sunglasses for our upcoming trip to Florida I decided to go for the Scout Hero Glasses with dark UV protective tints.
It still seems like we have forever before we go back to school but I like to be really organised with getting the school uniform sorted so we aren’t rushing about at the very last minute! To be fair I do always forget something and am usually found running to the shop on the night before school starts. Read more
