Let me let you in on a little secret. Sometimes people don’t like superheroes and princesses. Don’t get me wrong, you might have a comics collection and be able to sing all the words to “Let it go” without missing beat, but whenever it’s time for a kid’s fancy dress party it seems like all you can see are row upon row of Iron Men, Hulks, Elsas and “some princess, not princess specifically, but it’s a pretty pink dress”.

We have been to quite a few Disney on Ice shows now, they are also great fun and very entertaining! Disney always know how to put on a fantastic show. We will be going to the Nottingham show in May which we are really looking forward to 🙂
While it’s true that unconditional love is the most significant thing a mother could give to her family, time is also a valuable gift that she could extend to her children. Since being a mother is the toughest job in the whole world, you have to learn how to manage your time for work and special time for the kids.
This year we have big plans to make our house beautiful, starting with a new bathroom in February which I will be writing more about very soon but today I wanted to concentrate on our living room as it is my favourite room in the house and I want it to be a perfect space for our family and also suitable for entertaining guests.
We love finding new movies to watch so we were very pleased to find out that Home is now available to buy digitally! The kids are really excited to come home from school today to watch it, I have popcorn at the ready and we are going to enjoy some family movie time, this week is really busy as it is the last week of school so we need lots of down time like this after school. The kids are so tired, so ready for the holidays – I am so looking forward to having them home for the next 6 weeks! I have heard great things about the film, the animation looks awesome and I personally cannot wait to watch it.
You can buy the digital version with Amazon or iTunes today!
Based on the critically acclaimed book “The True Meaning of Smekday” by Adam Rex. In “Home” an alien race invades Earth and uses it as a hideout from their mortal enemy. When one lowly alien accidentally notifies the enemies of his whereabouts, he is forced to go on the run with a teenage girl. The two become unlikely buddies and embark on a comical globe-trotting adventure to right his wrongs, in which our alien hero learns what it really means to be human.

I couldn’t resist putting together a list of Top 5 gifts for my kids this year! I haven’t done the Christmas Gift section this year on my blog as I haven’t had time so this is my mini version! Bugs will be 2.5 at Christmas.
My top toy for Bugs this year is a Mini Micro Scooter with seat & O-bar handle £74.99
Next up are these gorgeous first Mickey Mouse books from the Book people for just £9.60! He will LOVE these!
He adores Jake & The Neverland Pirates – it’s stopped playing on CITV in a morning so I’ve got him his very own DVD 🙂
I always adored my babies in all in one babygro’s so I’m trying to keep him a baby a little bit longer by buying him this red striped all in one from Debenhams.
He’ll also be getting his very own Leaptop as he loves to play with Boo’s which is a more advanced version!
To be honest I have found it really hard to buy for him this year as he has so much passed down to him from Boo; so he won’t be having an awful lot more than this – just a few stocking fillers! I don’t think he’ll be disappointed; do you?
