A fun family quick question game: Hedbanz

A fun family quick question game: Hedbanz

I love this game and so do the kiddies. We get everyone to play it with us when they come round too. It's a quick fire round game where you have to guess what is on your head band.

Getting organised with work and hobbies using Trello

Getting organised with work and hobbies using Trello

I thought it was about time I started sharing some of my tips on how I keep organised with my work and my hobbies. Both at work and at home, I use Trello - it can used in a browser or on an app. I have it on my iPhone, iPad and work computer using the browser.

Easter with Clintons

Easter with Clintons

Clinton Cards have some wonderful Easter goodies in stock at the moment and we were sent some of the products to review, just in time for the Easter weekend. We were sent a cute little Easter basket, with a lovely yellow bag, 2 different types of Easter cards, some Lindt bunnies, a cute little Easter cake and some of those tiny little chicks that make you say "ahh". Clintons are encouraging crafts with the kids this Easter and getting them to embrace their creative side, unfortunately with Noah being quite young he doesn't quite understand the stick and glue, colouring and making just yet - but it was great to see that there are fab products out there as next year we will definitely be at the forefront of the Clintons queue and everyone will be getting Noah made products for Easter - just a warning to the family!
