Make Your Own Doctor Who Christmas Cards

Last week Oscar was off from school as he had caught the end of my flu. 
Luckily he's had the flu nasal spray and didn't suffer as much as I did.

I wanted to keep him busy, so I thought it would be the perfect time to make some very cool Doctor Who Christmas Cards.


It's uber easy and next to no mess at all.

We downloaded the copies of the cards from www.penguin.co.uk, where there are 4 designs to choose from.

We are massive Doctor Who fans in the Mini Beast household thanks to Daddy's obsession.


I cut out the templates and Oscar took charge of the sticking.
We didn't have any card in the house so I improvised by using some coloured paper and folded it a few times.
It worked pretty well and we were both very impressed with the end result.

Jon loved them so much that he's put them on display and said if we want to send any out we'll have to make some more!


If you want to make your own Doctor Who cards you will need.
The templates which you can download from the Penguin website
Some Card 
A pair of scissors,
A glue stick
A spare 20 minutes.


The illustrations for the cards were taken from the new book - 

A new collection of illustrated Christmas adventures, starring twelve incarnations of the Doctor plus many of his friends and enemies.

Inside this festive book of Doctor Who stories, you'll find timey-wimey mysteries, travels in the TARDIS, monster-chasing excitement and plenty of Christmas magic. Find out what happens when the Third Doctor meets Jackie Tyler, the Seventh Doctor and Ace encounter an alien at Macy's department store, and the Ninth Doctor tries to get Rose a red bicycle for Christmas.
With stories by Jacqueline Rayner, Colin Brake, Richard Dungworth, Mike Tucker, Gary Russell and Scott Handcock, plus twelve original illustrations by artists including the award-winning Rob Biddulph.

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…
