    Whats the Deal with Animal Crossing // Gaming

    There has been strange things going on at the minute, for one thing we are all stuck in doors with not a lot to do besides drink a lot and moan about being stuck indoors, and then there is Animal Crossing New Horizon! Animal Crossing New Horizon came to us at a time of need, beautifully distracting us from the horror of the world and keeping us all pretty much sane during all of lockdown. Released to the world on the 20th March 2020 and onto the Nintendo switch and its smaller counterpart the Switch Lite, it seemed to have united a collection of people into sharing recipes, flowers and other things that you can find in the game. I think one of my favourite things that has come out of New Horizon being released has simply been the amount of people who have never gamed at all in their life, pick up the new game and a new switch for themselves and joined a world of already crazy animal villager lovers. I won’t bore you with all the details of the game because lets face it, it has been out for a little while now and this isn’t a… View Post

    AD // Oopsie Heroes the Bedwetting Alarm // Review

    For roughly two months now we have been trying out Oopsie Heroes, which is a clever little device, it sits just outside of the Childs underwear and sounds an alert when it detects wetness. A couple of nights a week after returning home from I noticed that my youngest, Robin, had a tendency to sleep so heavily at night that she failed to get up and get herself to the toilet which has lead to a lot of damp bedclothes and a great deal of washing for me, deciding to place her back into pull-ups seemed to be the only solution to help prevent wetness but it didn’t fix the situation, and while she was dry every other night I wanted to find a different solution. In comes Oopsie Heroes, who offered me a chance to test out their product and share with you what I thought of it. I decided to give it a long trial due to the fact that I share time with the children with their dad and wanted to make sure to give it a fair and proper test when she was at home with me. ** The device itself is surprisingly not as heavy… View Post

    AD // Printsfield Personalised Socks // Review

    I think I’ve mentioned many many times before that I am in fact a crazy cat lady, my boys Loki the mainecoon and Atlas the domestic short hair have featured on my blog for a little while now, they’ve had their own custom beds and fancy Swedish style nap places, along with yummy snacks that come right through the letterbox. But it got me thinking, that I do not have anything for myself with the boys on and this is where Printsfield comes in, they are a company that specialises in comedic brightly coloured and of course completely customised socks with your pets faces on them, and even your own faces. They kindly offered me the chance to order my own socks and share with you my experiences with them. The socks themselves are really good quality, I have worn them all around the house and even outside when I take my rubbish out to the bins, they truly hold up to the day to day stresses that feet can be put through. Started in 2018 by Jakub and Mykhailo, who’s main goal when starting up this customisable sock making business was to put the fun back into the world based… View Post

    How to Cope with Life Stress. // Mental Health

    We all at some point struggle, find things hard and cannot cope with day to day activities, sometimes we put on a brave face and ‘keep calm and carry on’. but in these times of high stress and quite frankly god horrid times the limit of which we consider breaking point has gotten a little smaller and easier to reach. This got me thinking, what do I do when I have reached my absolute limit of how much I can deal with, how do I cope with life when life feels like its at its worst and I wanted to share with you those tips that I use daily, some times I do use more than one a day to help with certain situations and others do their job just fine for the day. How I Cope Take time out, walking away from a situation is always the best strategy, it helps you calm down and think rationally about what the task ahead is, there is no shame in walking away from a fight, mentally or physically, if you know deep down that you cannot deal with it then it is almost always best to back off, sit down quietly… View Post

    Lockdown One Month In // Parenting

    In my previous post I shared what we are longing for and cannot wait to do once COVID 19 ends but I thought what more exciting than share with you what we have been getting up to while in lockdown and what fun things we’ve done with homeschooling. That one month certainly went buy extremely slowly but my children and I have managed to fill it with fun things, taking our daily walk around the local woods to spot birds and bluebells, and of course cracking on with home schooling. H O M E  S C H O O L I N G I will be honest, I was a little scared about doing this in the beginning, while I am trained to work with children in the early years setting I was so excited and nervous that I wouldn’t be up to the task, but with the help from Mrs Mactivity and advice, set work and projects from the school teachers, its been a breeze. The children have worked through worksheets sourced by myself and via the school and I have also done a few things off my own back such as growing a garlic from a sprouting clove that… View Post
