Me and Mine

Me and Mine (September 2018)

Sunday, September 30, 2018

September has been an incredibly difficult month for us all. We moved back into our house the evening before the children returned to school and it was a mess. We have thankfully decorated the boys room so all of the children are sleeping together in there at the moment but we have had so much to do and it has been stressful to say the least. 


Review: Fab Lab Festival Face Tattoos

Thursday, September 13, 2018

We went on a big family holiday to a lovely cottage in Pembrokeshire over the summer holidays. We weren't sure what the weather would be like whilst there but we were a short way from a lovely beach and made sure we took plenty of things to entertain the children. I decided to take along the Fab Lab Festival Face Tattoo set from Interplay. We were also celebrating Elsie's birthday while we were away and we thought it would be great fun to have a go at decorating all of their faces. 


Review: Fab Lab Tie Dye Kit

Wednesday, September 12, 2018

Over the summer Gracie and I decided to do a few fun craft activities together. One of these was to have a go at creating our own tie dye t-shirts. We used the Fab Lab Tie Dye kit which comes with four different colour dyes, disposable gloves, a bag full of elastic bands and a full instruction booklet. We read through the instruction leaflet to see the different patterns we could make and decided to try out two of them.


Review: M&S Opticians Intu Derby

Thursday, September 06, 2018

Marks & Spencer have recently opened up opticians in five of their stores, Westfield London, Manchester, Derby, York and Bolton. I was asked to visit the Derby store recently to test out the service. I booked my appointment online at for the weekend after they opened and headed to the store at INTU shopping centre in Derby.
