Toilet Trouble

This post is sponsored by Hasbro

Over the long weekend, we went camping with friends and family for three nights. There were six kids along for the ride and, on an unpowered site, we needed some entertainment! Hasbro had sent me their new game, Toilet Trouble, to try out, and I thought this might be the perfect time to give it a road test. After all, with all the kids aged between three and seven, toilet humour is the funniest thing ever!

SING Coming on DVD

This post is in partnership with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment

In our house, the movie SING was highly anticipated. Both my daughters (yes even the 16-year-old) watched the trailer numerous times over about six months before it’s release. So, as you can imagine, they are pretty excited about it being released on DVD next week. When we received our SING pack from Universal it included at little Buster toy. Tully took it to kindy for news and apparently the reaction was like Justin Bieber just walked in the room.

This is our retirement strategy given that, as a freelancer, I have almost no super, and property is a pretty sure thing.  Continue reading

Real Mum Review- ALDI Mamia range

Aldi Mamia

This post is sponsored by ALDI

It’s been a few years since I have had a kid in nappies but when I did, the ALDI Mamia nappies and wipes were my go-to choice. They were affordable and effective for Tully, with minimal leaking issues and no skin irritations. However, having three kids, I’m well aware that what works for one kid may not work for another.
