Being a mum can be the most rewarding job in the world. It can also be the most challenging! Join me on my journey through motherhood and the highs and lows it brings. I blog when I get a moment; as you will see these moments are far and few between. But I am still committed to improving my blogging rate!

A Review of Don't Laugh - A spectacularly funny game by Drumond Park

Don't Laugh!  

A hilarious game by Drumond Park which thoroughly delighted my eldest two children!. 
Don't Laugh! is an electronic family game for 2-4 players aged 8 to adult.

My 9 year old son loves jokes. So combine a game that involves telling jokes, fart sounds and infectious giggling and you have him and his older sister, (11 years old), rolling around laughing. 

 What made it really funny for me was watching them trying not to laugh!

Don't Laugh! includes a 'Don't Laugh!' microphone, playing board, 4 playing pieces and 100 joke cards. 

The object of the game is to get to the finish first by making all the other players laugh or smile! 
Tell your own jokes for even more jumps to the finish!

To listen to some of the microphone sounds, read or even listen to some of the jokes pop over to Drumond Park. 

The game retails at £19.99 and is perfect for snuggling up with the family on a chilly evening to have a rip roaring laugh.

Thank you to Drumond Park for giving us the opportunity to review 'Don't Laugh!' ...... we laughed, cried and had a thoroughly great time.

I Dare You All Not To Laugh!!!!!

On Holiday

On Holiday 

I am not blogging at the moment I am.... 

Playing with my children
Swimming in the sea and paddling pool with them
Building sandcastles and challenging them to build the biggest, the best....
Eating ice cream!

Flying kites, 
Going on nature walks, 
Talking and laughing with them, 
Spending time learning more about them and myself,

Visiting places, 
Spending time with family, 

Reading to my children, 
Working with my children on their maths, reading, writing and spelling, 
Being creative....

And having such a lovely time I shall not be adding to this blog until they are back in school. 
No apologies given !! xx

Father's Day Treats and Ideas

Treat your Dad with one of these rather lovely products from Radox and Dove Men +Care


Dove men+Care Sensitive+ Face Wash

The Blurb.....
A gentle formula, the Sensitive+ Face Wash is clinically proven to fight skin dryness while thoroughly cleansing. The caring way to wash your face.

My Thoughts... .
A lovely creamy wash with a lovely scent. It didn't make the skin feel dry and stretched!

Dove Men+Care - Sensitive Clean, Body and Face Wash

The Blurb....
Specially formulated for men with sensitive skin, Dove Men Sensitive Clean has been dermatologically tested and contains Micromoisture™ technology which is clinically proven to help fight the causes of skin dryness. This product has a pleasant neutral-fragrance and is suitable for sensitive skin.

My Thoughts.....
Although it says a pleasant neutral-fragrance this does not do it justice as it suggests a 'nothing' smell - it has a very nice subtle smell, not overpowering but definitely a nice scent. A nice frothy wash which was rich and creamy and did not feel drying to the skin. 

Radox Muscle Therapy Bath Soak - a Stimulating blend, with black pepper & Ginseng

The Blurb.....
Is your Dad a bit of an action man?  Radox has the perfect remedy for his aching muscles. Slipping into a hot bath with the classic Radox Muscle Therapy, blended with ginseng and a handful of black pepper, will help gently warm his muscles and ease away any aches and pains that come as a result of being a great dad. 

My Thoughts......

I remember my dad using the bath salts when I was a child and the lovely smell coming from the bathroom. This won't disappoint on the scent front, a fruity,spicy and musky smell. Loads of bubbles and a very relaxing bath.

Radox  For Men - fennel & Sea minerals 2-in-1 Shower & Shampoo

The Blurb.....
Is your Dad always on the go?  There is no better way for him to start the day than with the refreshing blend of fennel and sea mineral. 

My Thoughts.... 
As always with Radox a lovely shower and shampoo - smells really fresh and vibrant. Lots of bubbles and a nice clean feeling afterwards.

I would like to thank Nadia at for sending me these delightful products to review.

 I would also like to thank hubby and son (who decided that even though he was not a dad, he was male and may be a dad one day and therefore ought to help me out!) for road testing the Radox and Dove ranges. 

If  you are stuck for ideas for Father's Day these do make lovely gifts.  I may also be reaching out to try them myself... I get achy muscles too!!
