I really want to make this project work in 2017. My favourite photos of 2016 are of my three. But sometimes, it just seems more difficult. So happy are they in their varying twosomes. As a team of three it … Continue reading →
I’m sure it’s something to do with them being twins. (It has nothing to do with them being twins). I’m sure it has everything to do with them being boys, and being my babies. (It has everything to do with … Continue reading →
If you know me you’ll know how much my daughter tests me. For all the right reasons I’m sure. She’s a daddy’s girl. She’s stubborn, obstinate, single-minded, opinionated, usually factually correct, funny, generous and kind. Everything I love in adults, … Continue reading →
My children were on cloud nine when they had an early taster of the latest Skylanders offering – Skylanders Imaginators. My children love Skylanders even without the game – the Skylanders characters encourage their imagination like you can’t believe. The … Continue reading →
We have the first month under our belts. And I know I have to touch wood and do all the superstitious things associated with not tempting fate, but I think we made the right decision. Our twins in separate classes … Continue reading →
We were planning to spend our third day of beaches at Trecco Bay. But as we stood trying to figure out which side of the bay was better on a murky day there appeared to be a stretch of sunshine … Continue reading →
CM went on a school trip this year to Rest Bay in Porthcawl. It was followed by a school assembly where the children took over the Beach Boys classic with “Everybody’s gone surfin’, surfin’ at Rest Bay”. It really doesn’t … Continue reading →
Social media tells me: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is at the Millennium Centre. When I found out I knew we would have to go. I have no idea how my boys came to love the film so much, but one … Continue reading →
Sometimes there are toys which you look at and you want to run a mile, but your child… your child is completely head over heels. Club Petz Bam Bam the Hamster falls into this category. This cute little pet was made to be added to our madhouse after we disappointed 5-year-old B with the news we couldn’t add another real-life hamster to our 3 cats and 2 dogs menagerie.The arrival of Bam Bam was met with ridiculous amounts of excitement, and the moment the “Try Me” button was pressed the squeals of delight began. And I realised this pet would definitely be best confined to the boys’ bedroom.
For the moment Bam Bam is ‘hugged’ he begins shaking and bouncing and giggling with laughter. And that’s the thing. He’s a little loud. And it’s contagious. The boys love him. I can’t knock it. Bam Bam is really cute, and furry. And you can completely see why Bam Bam makes children laugh.
And the boys loved him so much that of course Bam Bam went to bed with them that night. And of course the next day they insisted on taking Bam Bam with them for their sleepover at Grandma & Grampy’s (oh, I tried to contain my laughter!).
So, yes, Bam Bam is definitely one to bring smiles and laughter into the life of a child. And Bam Bam makes it really easy to get a child in a sulk to have a strop when you’ve managed to make them laugh by putting Bam Bam on their stomach. But Bam Bam is loud. Bam Bam is best creating happiness in a child’s bedroom. And then life is good. IMC’s Club Petz Bam Bam retails for £19.99 and can be found at Argos, Amazon, Tesco and other retailers.

If you know my husband, you’ll know how much he likes cars. So much so, for Christmas he bought me one. That sounds so much more than it is – I accidentally sold mine. Yep, even I can’t believe that happened. After managing for a few months with one car the frustration wore thin. So the opportunity to review Turtle Wax Car Wash goodies was a great opportunity to show him that I was actually grateful. So much so I set the children to work.Halfords have a massive range of Turtle Wax products and whilst me and hubby associate Turtle Wax with the traditional ‘wax on, wax off’ we were both really amazed with the range of products, making sure your car looks equally sparkly inside and out.
Admittedly, as someone who isn’t a massive fan of cleaning the car my favourite product was the Waterless Wash. Because yes, how simple? And of course, working out so much more reasonably priced than the car wash. And if you have a little one who just needs help reaching the higher reach, it’s job done.And to go with getting the body of the car clean, there’s also products to make sure the rest of the body reach the same cleanliness. The ClearVue Glass Clean did manage a streak-free clean, something I was a little cynical of anything achieving based on my experience with polish and mirrors.Due to the range of products to hand, we also decided to try out the All Wheel Cleaner, which managed to clean up the whole wheel, offering more than just a surface clean.The simplicity of cleaning with the Turtle Wax range really is great for people who don’t like this particular chore. Cleaning up the car inside and out is straightforward, and based on the hubby’s response definitely worth the effort.
And if you do like making the effort, Turtle Wax have the more traditional ‘elbow wax’ products as well, if you like to inspect the cleanliness with a magnifying glass (hello dad!).
For my children, they like the more traditional clean, with a bucket of water, so they put the Turtle Wax Super Clean Wash & Wax to the test- which not only kept them busy, but also cheered hubby up no end to be driving a clean car again.
