Rubik's 3X3 Cube

Today is the start of the UK Speedcubing Championships!

Ready, set… go! 
Speedcubing is the fastest solving of the Rubik’s Cube that you’ll ever see!
Speedcubers can solve the Rubik’s Cube in lightning speed. 
Did you know that the Rubik’s Cube World Championships are held every two years? 
People across the world practise speedcubing with one goal in common – to set their ultimate speed cube time. 


The Rubik's Cube World Record

When Erno Rubik invented the cube in 1974, he had no idea if his new puzzle could actually be solved. In fact, it took him over a month to solve his own cube.
Fast forward to the present day and the time to beat is an unbelievable 4.69 seconds!
 That amazing time was achieved by Patrick Ponce of the USA.
 Unsurprisingly, robots are even faster, easily beating Ponce's World Record. 
A robot solved the Rubik’s Cube in 0.637 seconds! 
Speed cubes are becoming lighter, slicker, faster – who knows what the next Rubik’s Cube World Record will be?

Noah decided to give Speedcubing a go ...... unfortunately he's still trying!
So I don't think he'll be breaking any records just yet.
We started on a brand new 3X3 cube and I mixed it up for him and gave it to him, with him beaming with confidence that he'd be able to do it easy peasy!

Well after searching YouTube for the answers, he's still attempting to solve it.
We have managed to get nearly a whole side minus one square.

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…
