Scootering as a family is one of our favourite activities, and we just got Tully a brand new scooter for Christmas. So when I was offered the chance to review Globber Scooters I knew I had to pass them on to a scooterless family. So I organised my for my friend Elana to be sent two for her family.
Last week we had the opportunity to attend Charlie and the Chocolate Factory thanks to IP Publicity and Make-A-Wish Australia. It was Tully’s first time at a proper musical (and at something that ran so late) and she absolutely loved it!
I’m starting off this MathsOnline review by telling you all that maths and I do not get along. I still count on my fingers, I can no longer do anything without a calculator and I don’t know my timetables. At high school, I did Maths in Practice, where we learnt how to take 10% off shopping items and read a train time table. So, I really wish I had MathsOnline when I was a kid.
Have you walked into a Telstra store to upgrade your phone and they have offered you FREE accessories with your phone plan? Here’s how it normally goes – you walk in to get a new phone and your salesperson tells you that they are running a special deal at the moment. If you signup for that new iPhone they will give you $100/$300/$600 worth of accessories as a bonus. Well, check your bill – you are paying for these!
Ice cream sandwiches are my favourite ice creams – the biscuit and ice cream combo is the BEST! So much so that really my only memory of Disneyland when I was 14 was the ice cream sandwiches. If you are obsessed with them too then here are 5 easy ways you can make your ice cream sandwiches even more amazing!
If your kid isn’t keen on a full-sized lunch at school, they may prefer the Japanese style Bento lunches instead. Bento lunches consist of a number of bite-sized pieces of food, in a lunch box with divided sections. This can be a better option for kids that don’t like to sit still for long or get bored eating the same thing over and over again.
For this review, I hand the blog over to Mr Stuff Mums Like, who is in charge of the kitchen in our house!
One of my many hobbies is pointing out to my wife all the times I was ahead of the curve. Mostly when it comes to health and wellness trends. Take any food or health fad you might have seen or heard of recently and I was probably doing it before anyone else. At least that’s my completely unsubstantiated claim. I won’t list all the times I was wrong, because it hurts my argument, but here are the ones I got right.
Tully is in full Harry Potter mode these days. She eats, sleeps and breathes the books and it’s all she talks about. She’s deep into planning her Harry Potter birthday party in April and I hear new ideas every day. (I’m really not sure how to get the actual broomsticks to fly lol!) So when we were invited to the Wizardry High Tea at the Sir Stamford Hotel Circular Quay she LOST HER MIND!
Now that Christmas is over we are all starting to plan for the kids to go back to school (it can’t come fast enough, right?). I don’t know about you but I’m back at work now, so I have to juggle my full-time job with getting everything ready for going back. Thankfully I just have one going back to school this year! Two kids down and one to go. After three kids and nearly 20 years of parenting I’ve got a fair few back to school hacks up my sleeve, so I thought I’d share them with you. Hopefully, this helps make your organising a little easier.
Pavlova is the ultimate Aussie dessert and I love finding new ways to use it! I’ve come up with the perfect Australia day pavlova that every dessert lover won’t be able to get enough of. Here’s my very favourite Pavlova recipe, first found in the back of an old Family Circle magazine, that I’ve tweaked over the past 20 years.
