Sundays are for....

Cups of coffee and crazy children!


Project Mc2 Premiere and Spy Party

I was invited along to the premiere of Project Mc2 at The Royal Institution.

Not only was it showing the brand new season of Project Mc2 but also a spy party, which was hosted by the guys from Sharky and George parties.

I went along with Noah, my nieces Isla and Esme and my mum.

Noah wasn't impressed with coming with us, as he thought it was going to be far too girlie for him.

Once we stepped through the doors, he soon changed his mind.

The guys were greeted by Mckeyla and were given a secret password to get in and once inside they were taken to one side of the room by the spies.
They had to unlock and solve some puzzles to find some clues.
They were then taken on a secret spy mission around the building.

Whilst the kids were running around, myself and mum joined the other adults and had a coffee.
Once we'd finished we still had time to have a look around the building and check out the science room and all the Project Mc2 toys before the kids all reappeared.

The kids all loved being a spy and the dramatic end to their spy adventure was awesome.

They all then went into the science room, where they got to try there hand at a few very cool experiments such as,
Making their own lava lamp,
Growing some crystals,
Making clay monsters and taking fun pictures with a secret spy mirror.

This was one of the best events I've been too as it was so thought out and so exciting.
All the kids had a great time and were beaming with joy.

After we had, had our lunch we headed downstairs to watch the brand new episode of Project Mc2.

The screening started with another experiment shown to us by Atomic Amy.

We found out if dry ice was an alkaline or an acid.

What do you think it is?
Leave your answers in the comments.

The screening was good, I think the Isla and Esme were slightly too young to really get it, but I enjoyed it and thought if it was on when I was younger I would have loved it.
Noah actually got into it and I'm sure he would have happily sat through another episode.

All the children left with a goodie bag which had one of the brand new dolls in.
Esme was over the moon, as she did spend most of the event trying to pinch one from the display tables!

Each of the dolls came with its very own experiment, which I thought was pretty cool!
Not something you get with other dolls!

We all had an awesome time and I have two very happy nieces thanks to their brand new dolls.
They're little scientists in the making.

Project Mc2 is now steaming on Netflix.

Another Kids Clothing Haul ~ Next

You probably all know by now that I love Next with a passion and buy most of our clothes from there.

Great styles and great value for money, the clothes wear and wash well.
Ru has some of the boys old Next gear and it looks as good as new.

So lets kick it off with the twins.
I thought I'd go for matching outfits this time, as why not there twins!

Basic green jogger shorts, matching digger tees, with white shell toe trainers.
Matching polo shirts,
Chino shorts and my favourite baseball tops.

Noah got some new shorts and a tee that wasn't Minecraft or WWE related.
A bit of a win for me, as he usually hates it when I buy him clothes, but he's actually worn this a few times now. That's wear them and not moan about it until I give in and let him pick out his old clothes.

Noah used to love new clothes, but he now has a strange obsession with old clothes, that he'll much rather wear an old t-shirt and jeans that are half way up his shins.
I think the only way I'm going to win the battle is very slowly and only buy things occasionally and then take away bits and bobs from his wardrobe and hope he doesn't notice.

Ru bear is growing constantly so the need for clothes for him is a given, he does get the odd hand me down from the boys but its also far to hard not to buy new things. Specially when they are as cool as these...

I can't wait for it to get cooler so I can get him into these jumpers.
Both the jeans stood out to me more than the normal plain ones, they suit Ru right down to the ground as there's nothing plain about him.

He was also going to go and have a test photo shoot for a modelling agency the other week, so I wanted some nice things for that as he needed 3 changes of clothes.

I chickened out at the last minute as I read it would take 3-4 hrs and I just thought Ru would have one of his meltdowns and it would be awful.

Maybe I just need to bite the bullet and take him, as he does love a camera.

I also think he'll make a gorgeous looking model.
