Review: Having Fun With My First Scalextric

When I was growing up I remember having a Scalextric set.  I think it was to keep my Dad happy as much as me, but it definitely worked on both counts.  We loved racing the cars round the track back in the day, so when I was offered a My First Scalextric for the girls to review, I had to…

Teva Kids Sandals Review

My girls love sandals, and they also love being adventurous.  Sometimes, sandals and adventure don’t always go very well together, especially when you like sparkly sandals and climbing in the adventure playground.  A sparkly pair of sandals can soon look like a battered pair of sandals once they have been put through the mill at the play park or the…

A Chatty Feet Gift For Teen

Teenagers are notoriously difficult to buy gifts for aren’t they?  Money seems to be the go to gift as soon as they hit 13.  I don’t mind giving money or vouchers to a teenager as a gift, but sometimes it’s nice to give them something a bit different.  I’m always on the look out for present ideas for teens, and…

When we arrived onboard the Norwegian Epic we were a tad peckish.  All that travelling had made us a little on the hungry side.  The one thing you can always guarantee onboard a cruise ship is there will be somewhere to get some food.  I checked out the ships plan, and felt drawn to the Garden Cafe.  After a a…
