I worry an awful lot about something happening to myself or my other half so Life Insurance for me is so important! I need to know that my family will be looked after if the worst should happen! With James being the breadwinner in our household if we didn’t have Life Insurance me and the kids would be left without a great deal if something was to happen to him so I feel secure in the knowledge that we are protected. Endsleigh have some great tips over on their blog about buying Life Insurance… it is definitely worth checking out if you are considering it or haven’t got it!
Life is precious; so VERY precious. I am always thinking of ways to create memories and keepsakes for my kids so I was very happy when Best British Bloggers contacted me on behalf of Endsleigh to ask me if I would like to receive a Time Capsule kit! I have never thought of making a time capsule before but thought it could be great fun for the kids to get involved with and also to preserve some of our memories.
Our time capsule is still very much in progress… I’m currently in the ‘thinking about it’ stage so I thought I’d show you all what we were given and tell you my plans and ask for your advice too!
The kits includes -
- a lovely shabby chic chest
- Vivatar video camera
- pretty photo frame
- one line a day diary
- forget me not seeds
- a pyrography set
- voucher to print photos
Firstly we are going to spend time designing our box with the awesome pyrography set; we’ll probably paint it too to make it look pretty and we’ll include our name and date we buried it on the lid of the box.
Then for the contents; these are my ideas so far – please let me know if you have any to add…
- a letter to the person who finds it
- a family photo
- a family video on a memory stick
- a copy of a newspaper from the day we bury it
- a selection of coins dated 2013
- a toy each chosen by the kids
- a cd with our favourite songs on
- pictures/letters drawn by the kids
You see I said this was in the thinking about it stage… I need your help with this I think! Have you ever created a Time Capsule?
If so what did you put in it? What do you think is a good addition to a Time Capsule? If you found one what would you hope it contained?
