Lego City // The Twins First Lego Sets

The twins have always been jealous of Noah's lego collection and desperate for their own.
So when I was sent some Lego City sets I knew they would be over the moon.


We were sent the Lego City Race plane (RRP £7.99)
Lego City Stunt Truck (RRP £7.99)
Lego City Sweeper &Excavator (RRP £24.99)


The twins each picked one of the little boxes and said they'd share the big box.

Alex took the Race Plane.
Get ready to put on an amazing show from the skies with the Lego City Race Plane, featuring a spinning propeller and opening cockpit.
includes mini figure.

Oscar opted for the Stunt Truck.
It's time to put on a daring show in the amazing stunt truck! Strap yourself into the cab and take off for your first trick!
Show off and make each jump higher than the last. This set features a truck with a big rear wing and big knobbly tyres, plus a mini figure.


We all sat at the kitchen table and the boys helped me build them.
I was the builder and they were my helpers by finding me the right bricks that I needed.
The instructions are great and even the boys could understand what was needed and how to do it.

They took it in turns to help and were very impressed with the final masterpiece.

Once we had completed the plane and truck we moved on to the Sweeper and Excavator.
Keep the Lego City streets clear for the traffic with the help of the city work crew and their Sweeper & Excavator, featuring a truck sweeper with spinning brushes, various work tools and detachable trailer, an excavator with movable arm and shovel bucket, rotating body and opening cage, a street sign, cones, brick wall elements and two mini figures.


When it came to building the bigger set, I tried to get them to get involved in the building part.
They were a little hesitant at first but once I showed them it was pretty easy and pretty impossible to go wrong if they listened and looked at the instructions, and even if they did put the wrong brick on, they could easily re do it.

They loved how the brushes on the sweeper actually spun around and that they could spin the exactor around and around.

It was lovely to see them so proud of something they had made.
They put it straight on display in their bedroom, just like Noah has his.


Lego City sets are just perfect for brand new Lego fans and it was one of the very first sets Noah was given.


It really is amazing what you can build from simple little bricks!

You can find Lego in all good toy stores!

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…
