Adopt a new Christmas tradition this year with The Elf on the Shelf®

Are you ready to adopt a new Christmas tradition that will keep the Christmas magic alive??

Let me introduce 
  1. The Elf on the Shelf® 

"The Elf on the Shelf® is a special scout elf sent from the North Pole to help Santa Claus manage his naughty and nice lists. When a family adopts a scout elf and gives it a name, the scout elf receives its Christmas magic and can fly to the North Pole each night to tell Santa Claus about all of the day's adventures. Each morning, the scout elf returns to its family and perches in a different place to watch the fun. Children love to wake up and race around the house to look for their scout elf each morning."

You can pick from either a boy or Girl Scout elf and even what skin tone you'd prefer.

The book that comes along with your scout elf The Elf on The Shelf, A Christmas Tradition tells your child all about your scout elf and its magic and that if you touch it, it will loose it's Christmas magic and will no longer be able to fly to the North Pole.

We were very kindly sent a Girl Scout elf to review and introduce to my readers.
I have been on Pinterest and found lots of lovely ideas for our scout elf that will help promote "good list behaviour" from the boys.

I've also purchased An Elfs Story DVD to let the boys watch one day with some popcorn and a carpet picnic, which will hopefully help them understand what the scout elf is all about. 
I've also bought a few more The Elf on the Shelf® goodies, such as some scout elf clothing, scout elf cupcake cases and a candy necklace making kit for the boys to sit down and make for an afternoon activity on the run up to Christmas. 

I shall be introducing the The Elf on The Shelf, A Christmas Tradition to the boys on November 30th as an introduction for the boys then have our The Elf on the Shelf® scout elf arrive on December 1st in a truly magical way to kick off the count down to Christmas Day! 

If you follow me over on my Instagram I will be sharing daily photos of our scout elf.
She will also be keeping her very own scout elf diary on my blog, to keep you updated with how the boys are getting on, and how she's finding staying with our family. 

If you would like to adopt your very own scout elf you can find local Santa approved adoption centres here -

Pork Farm Board Games Championships

Leading pork pie manufacturers, Pork Farms are one step closer to finding their Board Games Champion with the announcement of their semi-finalists this week ahead of the grand final to be held during National Board Games Week at the end of April.

I'm pretty excited that I've been invited along to take part in the semi finals over in Orpington this coming Friday.

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
