... Haircuts, Dinosaurs and Hoppy Easter ...

I haven't really done a personal update in a while, so I thought now would be a good time to a little update on what we have been up to recently.
I've been having a non-planned social media break. I've found that I haven't really posted much in the last few weeks and it has been quite nice just enjoying life without a phone in my hand.
I have been pretty busy with coursework and writing my first TMA. The boys have mainly been busy with school and sports clubs.

A couple of weeks ago it was World Book Day and the boys all dressed up, Ru went as Roo the Roaring Dinosaur, Alex went as a Monster who loves Underpants... I did take a picture, but I can't find it on my phone :( Oscar went as a Star Wars Storm Trooper as he didn't want to dress as a proper book character and Noah went as Harry Potter.

Link was neutered, and it was a trickier operation than expected as they had to take out all his intestines to find his hidden testical. He had a cone on for 10 days, and…

... Ru's Private Screening Party Of The Brand New PJ Masks Series 2 ...

The action-packed adventures of Catboy, Owlette and Gekko, the superhero trio from Entertainment One’s (eOne) hit animated TV series, PJ Masks, are set to continue as brand new episodes from series two premiere on Disney Junior from Wednesday 28th March. 
To celebrate the brand new series we were sent a preview party bundle to help the boys enjoy a private home viewing of the very first two episodes! 

Ru was amazed at all the amazing PJ Masks goodies he was sent for the preview party and I'm certain ive never seen his smile so wide as when he saw his CatBoy duvet set on his bed!
Before the party, we sat down and wrote out some invites for the twins, so they knew when and where the party was going to be held and then I set them all out of the kitchen, so I could set up the party table and get the preview episodes up on the laptop.
I did a small selection of party food and some juice for them all to enjoy whilst watching the first two episodes ...

... Rubiks 2x2 Giveaway ...

We love Rubik's cubes in this house and we are always trying to solve one cube or another. We were recently sent this 2x2 and I stupidly thought oh this will be easy, I'll be able to crack this one.....

Well, I was wrong and I'm yet to solve it. Noah, on the other hand, is a bit of a dab hand when it comes to Rubik's cubes and has very nearly solved it!

Did you know...
The world’s largest Rubik’s Cube is three metres tall The smallest is just 10mm wide.  Both turn just like a regular cube.
There are more than 43 quintillion ways to scramble The Rubik’s Cube - that’s loads!  In fact, there are 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 possibilities!
If you turn The Rubik's Cube once every second, it will take you 1.4 trillion years to go through all the permutations.  (The universe is just 14 billion years old!)


The 2x2 Rubik’s Cube (also known as the pocket or mini cube) consists of 8 corner cubies and operates in much the same way as its bigger brother – the Rubik’s Cube.  As it is small…
