Inis Mór

Just 24 hours. That’s all we had on Inis Mór. It’s not enough time to do all the things we wanted to do. The last thing we wanted to do was to climb on board a tour bus. Hubby spends enough of his time driving buses so even if it meant we missed out on …

Today I’ve the chance for you to win tickets to Wonderfest, which is taking place on August 16th and 17th in the grounds of Malahide Castle. It’s not just everyday tickets either, it’s a full family ticket with camping included which is worth just under €150 in total.

Camping In Mountshannon

The day we packed up our things from carvanning in Kerry, we headed up the road, past Limerick to Mountshannon in County Clare for a 2 night stay. Before I start this blogpost I have to confess, as we didn’t have space for camping gear, thanks to the Irish Caravan And Camping Council, we stayed …

Spiderman Comes To Town

While I was away a few weeks ago a parcel arrived for me from Lidl Ireland filled with items from their new “Too Cute” range which came into stores today. Over the past fortnight the boys and I have put all the items inside to the test and here’s the verdict of Spiderman Comes To …

Stokke Steps Review

A couple of weeks ago I took delivery of a Stokke Steps Chair for a review. Here’s how I got on and what I thought of the new system.

Some News And Reviews

It’s a beautiful sunny day and I’ve some news and reviews to share.  Including Lidl’s new Nespresso compatible pods, Bellarom; a pint mug I found for sale (you will want one too); Bloom 2014, toilet training essentials and more!

Orange Is The New Black Series 2

As part of my Netflix Stream Team duties every now and again I get invited to the launch of a new series. However as I’ve been under a rock for the past year, I haven’t caught up with half the cult series. Basically if it’s not a cartoon character based series, I probably haven’t seen …

Netflix Countdown To The Oscars

There is a Netflix countdown to The Oscars over on their media streaming service. They provided me with a list of all the Oscar nominated movies and productions they have available, including their own documentary “The Square”.  I’ve gone through the list they sent and selected a few of my favourites in case you’re interested!

Turbo FAST

Finally it’s Christmas Eve and the kids are pure wired here. A couple of weeks ago we nipped along to a preview screening of the new, exclusive series on Netflix for kids “Turbo FAST” and the boys have been driving me demented to watch it again since. It’s great to have something that’s not Christmas …

Friday Fun

It’s one of those kind of dull grey days here. They are happening all too often and so I blogging away the blues by sharing some nice things. Hopefully they’ll cheer you up too. If you’ve found a great spot to get a Christmas present or a company who has been very helpful lately – …

Letters Become Toys With Disney

Could it really be that simple? Could letters become toys with Disney? When I was invited along to their store on Dublin’s Grafton Street last week I wasn’t sure what to expect. Surely this good news story was too good to be true. The mad thing is, it’s not.

Cooking With Kids

I’ll let you in on a secret; our ground floor is made up of only 2 rooms. The first is the living area which is North facing and has space for a sofa and a dining table and chairs at a squish. The second is my small galley kitchen, South facing, which is bathed with …
