Wally The Washer from Drumond Park!

You know it’s getting to ‘that’ time of the year, when I start giving you reviews of games for the kids!  Every year I make sure the children get a new game each-and I don’t mean a computer/tech game-I mean a ‘proper’ game the whole family can get involved with!
This year, I was sent two awesome table top games, from Drumond Park (you may remember me reviewing a couple of their games last year too!)
This review is for Wally The Washer-a table top game for ages 4+!

Portable North Pole – Messages for your children from Santa

 

I’m not a newbie to this PNP lark-we actually use this service every year, giving the children their own personalised videos from the man in red himself.

This year however, I was asked to write a review on the service, and introduce some new options for the video personalisation, and even show you some merchandise that is now available!

Grieving For An Alcoholic Parent At Christmas-Even Though They’re Still Alive

 

I know it’s Christmas-a time for magic, happiness, excitement and love. And I don’t want to put a downer on you, my lovely readers, at Christmas, but I also don’t think pretending mine is full of the above is normal either.
If I’m honest, this post has been a long time coming, and, if no one else reads it, I’ll at least get it all off of my chest and out of my head.

 

The point of this post, is basically that I am grieving for a Mother who is still alive, which isn’t a new feeling-it’s not a new grief, it’s something I’ve been processing for a long time-four years to be precise. Continue reading

What Are Your Favourite Christmas Songs?

So now we’re in December, we can fully enjoy the festive music and dig out the back catalogue of Christmas songs on dusty CD’s (or via spotify/google music/iMusic, which ever takes your fancy).

 

My favourite Christmas song, is definitely Little Drummer Boy-obviously partly because of David Bowie, but also because Bing Crosby really reminds me of my Grandfather.  He doesn’t look like him or even sound like him, something just reminds me of him-maybe its a generational thing.

 

I asked some of my blogger friends their favourite Christmas Songs.

What Are Your Favourite Christmas Movies?

We’re at that time again people-it’s December, it’s time to dig out the Christmas DVD’s, find that dedicated Sky Christmas channel, and circle all of your favourite Christmas movies in the bumper edition, festive TV Guide.

 

My favourite Christmas movie, has to be Polar Express-I love the story of magic, and the possibility of a child losing their belief in the magic of Santa, but ultimately finding it again.  The songs, the animation-it’s all so festive, it’s just perfect.

 

I asked some of my blogger friends their favourite Christmas Movies.
