Getting the mince pies, carrots and milk together for Santa and Rudolph on Christmas Eve is a tradition that takes place the world over each year on Christmas Eve.  Traveling the world and delivering gifts can be thirsty work, so Aldi are once again making sure that your fridge is stocked with Santa’s favourite tipple, milk!  Continue reading

Curiosity of a child – I don’t have all the answers!

The Curiosity of a child – Did a donkey do it?!

Question, questions and more questions. It’s all I get these days. Ah, the curiosity of a child. Car journeys are laced with questions. They come mostly from Aidan but Sarah has plenty of them too.
I have to admit it’s mostly cute and funny but they ask me the most random things. Sometimes I genuinely don’t have the answers and that doesn’t sit too well with them, particularly Aidan.  Continue reading

London without kids

London without kids, I’m still not the better of it!

For months on end my mother in law, Nanny Chambers, told us to go away together. When she said together, she meant just myself and Daddy Chambers.

Mamasmartz Hands on Magnets; a God send

Mamasmartz Hands on Magnets

The Mamasmartz Hands on Magnets have been a God send

I think every parent has been guilty of buying some pretty useless stuff for their kids, especially when they are babies. I came across a product recently that I thought would be ideal for Sarah but totally and utterly useless for Aidan. They are the ‘Hands on Magnets’ from Mamasmartz, which are basically a car parking safety tool for kids.  Continue reading

Playzone, Celbridge review: Sarah having fun in the ball pool

Play centres, I love them and I also hate them. They can be dirty, noisy and serve diabolical coffee and even worse food. Kids, however, love them. They don’t see the dirt. They don’t drink coffee either!  Continue reading
