Newsflash: new research concludes that buying toys for kids at Christmas is a complete waste of time!
Last week I bought my husband a new pair of shoes (good wifey) and when my son returned from pre-school I showed them to him. I was hoping that he’d agree that I’d made a good choice, but in fact he paid no attention to them whatsoever.
All aboard! I’m not normally a fan of travelling by train but when you’re a passenger on the Rathwood Santa Train you’re much more likely to be found singing than moaning.
Unlike the normal rail service there were no delays and after handing over our tickets we were asked if we wanted our cheeks and nose painted red.
At 3 I think E is too young for a spa but he sure likes being pampered!
We may not have put our decorations up yet but as for watching Christmas movies we’re already in the thick of it. Before E goes to bed we’ve been snuggling on the couch and watching something to give us the festive feels.
Last Saturday we were up bright and early to make our way to Citywest for ‘Disney On Ice Presents Frozen’. It felt a bit odd going to a performance in the morning and E was a bit confused ‘Will it be dark when it finishes?’ he asked. Well that would mean the performance would have lasted 6 hours so I sincerely hope not!
…still debating whether to buy a coffee machine or not. It would be much more convenient, but the takeaway cups from Costa are so much cuter than my mugs at home!
…getting a bit confused as to whether it actually is Winter or not. In Ireland it is, in the UK it’s not. It’s like ‘the dress’ all over again.
Who else enjoys reading the adventures of Meg, Mog, Owl and SUPERMAN?!
We read Meg and Mog this evening in an effort to get into the Halloween spirit. It’s been one of my son’s favourite books ever since he was a baby. He’s always been interested in anything spooky and the narrations are so bright and colourful they’ve always grabbed his attention.
You love the ‘Hurrah for Gin’ Facebook page, laugh at the ‘Hurrah for Gin’ Instagram account and are tickled by the ‘Hurrah for Gin’ Twitter account, so the question is… should you buy the book?
Katie Kirby is best known for her hilarious and highly relatable cartoons and the book contains many of them.
Run, run, as fast as you can, you can’t catch me I’m the ice cream van!
Since E started pre-school we’ve been doing less in the afternoons as he often says that he’s tired. The thing is that I’ve started wondering if ‘I’m tired’ can actually be translated as ‘I can’t be bothered to go outside I’d rather play on the ipad.’
…love Autumn leaves WHEN THEY’RE OUTSIDE. Not when they’re found in pockets of trousers that have been washed…
…switching from Prosecco to red wine now the evenings are getting colder. The only bubbles I like at the moment are the ones in my hot bath.
My little piglet had been counting down the days for ‘Peppa Pig’s Surprise’ for weeks so by Sunday he was literally snorting with excitement. (He has Daddy Pig’s oink nailed).
We arrived at the Olympia Theatre with plenty of time to spare (very unlike us) and made our way up the stairs of the ‘Circle’ entrance.
