... Back To School With Spiral Backpacks ...

It's finally here! 
Spiral's Back to school collection is ready to keep your kids
ahead of the pack this term.


Noah was recently sent one of Spiral's superly cool backpacks ready for his return to Year 6!
He's truly going to be rocking his back to school look with this awesome Galaxy Saturn design OG backpack.
RRP £24.99

Spiral is an eye-catching alternative to the outdated idea that backpacks are simply an item to carry your day to day belongings. 
Spiral backpacks are a canvas to make a statement about our character – and make sure we look good doing so!




Bag Features

- Hard wearing premium Polyester fabric 
- Reinforced and adjustable back straps 
- Additional back padding 
- Spacious front pocket 
- Media port 
- Grab handle 
- Custom Spiral labelling


Interior features:
- Large, 18L capacity 
- Hidden zip pouch 
- Inner laptop / book divider

Dimensions - 29 x 14 x 44 cm




As soon as Noah saw the bag he was in love, he's had the same backpack since Year 4 so he was over the moon to get such an awesome bag as a replacement. 
He's usually pretty fussy over bags and every time I show him a new one he'll always decline and say he likes his current one better.

I knew he would love this bag as his favourite colour is purple and he always enjoys looking at the stars with me and now he has all of that to carry around on his back.

There is plenty of space for all his school books and his homework will no longer go in scrunched up as he'll be able to place it neatly in the laptop section.
He also takes a ridiculous amount of reading books into class for what reason I am unsure of, but I know with the Spiral OG backpack he'll have plenty of space to do so.

... Puppy Dog Pals Toy Collection ...

If your children adore the show Puppy Dog Pals over on Disney Jr they're going to love the brand new Puppy Dog Pal toy collection!

We were recently sent a twitter party box filled to the brim with Puppy Dog Pal toys.
The boys couldn't believe their eyes!  


I thought I'd let you have a sneak peak ahead of the Puppy Dog Pal twitter party that we are part of on the 15th August at 1pm.

Inside our box we had...

Figures on The Go

Load your figure and their vehicle into the launcher, press down on the paw-print and watching them zoom off!

The boys all had fun playing with the Puppy Dog Pal Toy Collection and each has their favourites.
Rupert has had endless fun playing with the Doghouse playset with the deluxe figure set acting out his very own Puppy Dog Pal shows, the twins have enjoyed racing their Figures on the Go each trying to outspeed the other and Noah has taken his Puppy Love Plush to bed every night since he unboxed him. He's always wanted a Pug and now he has his very own one.

The Puppy Dog Pal Toy Collection has something for everyone's budget and some of the bigger sets would make fantastic birthday / Christmas presents (yes I know I said the C word!)
They will all spark the child's imagination and they'll have endless fun with each and every toy!

All toys suitable for ages 3 and up.

Beach Days

The start of the summer holidays hit us like a bus and we've all struggled to adjust to a new routine, so last Friday we got up had breakfast then headed out the door.
No time for tantrums or any sort of moaning, we walked from our house down to the beach.

As it was early the beach was pretty empty and the tourists were all still in their holiday homes.
So it seemed we had the whole stretch to ourselves.

The boys had a paddle in the sea and enjoyed jumping over the waves, once they decided they were too wet and started getting a bit grumpy I decided to treat them all to morning ice creams.

A bit of a sugar pick me up and a run along the sea they were happy to take on my challenge of finding the smallest shells they could possibly see!
That kept them busy well over 2 hours.

Here are a couple of photos from our morning.

... 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 we had to make sure he didn't suffer from internal bleeding and we had to keep him in the lounge to stop him going up the stairs or jumping around too much.
After the 10 days, he was desperate to get out of the lounge and have his collar taken off!

new house plant we found in Tesco's for £2.50


I got this awesome shirt to wow the kids in reception but unfortunately, it isn't long enough in the arms and my tattoos are on the show. So I need to find a thin long sleeved top to wear underneath. I have however worn it out and about and it has received lots of good comments!

 

My first proper TMA was marked and I was over the moon with the score...
84%!!
I just hope I can beat that on my next one.

I also finally got round to getting my hair sorted, my greys are all gone, my very old graduated bob is now evened out and I have highlights!!





The boys all had haircuts yesterday and they are all very pleased with them and I keep catching them looking in the mirror and touching their heads!


This morning we took the boys to a local church hall to join in with some Easter Crafts and hear the Easter Story. The boys all really enjoy joining in with the Church community and it's nice to see them doing something other than playing on the Xbox!


We are spending Easter Sunday at Jon's parents and Helen has planned a special egg hunt for all the boys.
Last year they had a great time running around their garden looking for the clues, so they can't wait for this year's hunt.

I hope you all have a lovely Easter
