She is known for her elegance when performing and when the crowd applauds her she enjoys clapping her fins together. Sarah.

NAME: Ellie  TALENT: Tightrope walking   ABOUT: Ellie is the star of the show and the act the audience loves to see. When Ellie performs, she shows daring acrobatics as she tip toes across a tightrope that is suspended at a great height. Ellie.

NAME: Chuckles  TALENT: Juggling Unicycle   ABOUT: Chuckles is particularly clever as he is able to ride expertly on his unicycle and juggle at the same time. But because Chuckles enjoys having a good laugh he is always playing jokes that make him laugh so much he can fall off his unicycle. Chuckles.

We was sent two cups, one to review and one to giveaway to one of our readers. Oliver quickly chose the cup that he wanted, Theodore, the talented dancing dog. The cups are fun to look at, bright in colour and made to a high quality. Oliver loves his new cup and feels all grown up with it, just like his older brothers. His little hand fits just right around the bottle and after using it for a few weeks now I can definitely say that it is Spill Proof, we have had no spills from the spout and Oliver finds it easy to open and close it. It has witheld the odd drop to the floor and is easy to wash out using a bottle cleaner. He enjoys looking at the little character on the side and points to it saying ‘Doggy’. As the cups capacity is only 300ml it doesn’t get too heavy for the little ones when they are holding it.

20131119-195239.jpg

The tommee tippee® explora® Animal Antics cups are available at Asda priced £4.49 for the First Transition Cup, and £3.99 for all other cups, from 21st October 2013.

20131111-064430.jpg

The following is written by Jak, 11 years old:

“Last week i watched ‘Scooby Doo Adventures: The Mystery Map’ with my best friend, Josh ( We had a sleep over 😉 ).  The DVD is suitable for ages 2-12 and is 45min long. We found the movie very funny and unique. This video has the authentic feel of the muppets and the animated series of the crime fighting, myth bustin’, and pizza eating gang.”

The film is one to watch with the whole family, the animations are great. The boys sat and watched as part of a sleepover and all i heard were giggles all the way through. As the film is only 43 minutes long it is ideal for the younger children especially if they find it hard to sit still for long periods of time.

As a child i loved watching the Muppets and Scooby Doo so i think that it is brilliant that the both of them have been combined to produce this fun filled family film that can be watched again and again. The DVD would make a fabulous Christmas stocking/present!

The new format DVD, Scooby doo! Adventures: ‘The mystery Map‘, is available from 21st October 2013.

We was sent a copy for the purpose of this review and was generously given another one to giveaway

If you would like to win a copy of the DVD then please do the following:

My Buggy Buddy Lock Giveaway

Do you ever leave your buggy outside and worry about it’s safety?

Well there is a solution and that’s called the Buggy Buddy Lock, you can lock your bags, your buggy, even your bike to a railing/gate giving you the extra piece of mind that your belongings are that little bit safer.

20130525-081513.jpg

I bought myself one of these locks when my Oliver was a newborn as i had to leave the buggy outside the health centers when i visited his health visitor for his weekly checks, I didn’t like the idea of leaving my expensive buggy outside with no security. The lock is small and lightweight enough to carry in your changing bag and even will fit into your handbag! I left mine attached to the buggy so i knew where it was at all times. We have even used the Buddy Lock to secure my sons bike to a railing when we was on holiday as we forgot the chain lock.

20130525-081519.jpg

The Buddy Lock is simple to use, it has a combination lock that you set up on the first time with a new 3 digit code. Half of the lock is covered with soft foam to prevent scratches on your buggy.

I have one of these locks to giveaway to you, all you have to do is the following:

  • Like my facebook page
  • Follow me on twitter
  • Tweet “I would like to secure my buggy with My Buddy Lock and @angoewright78”
  • Leave a comment below letting me know you have done the above

The giveaway will end on 8th June at midnight. I will be using random.org to pick a winner.

I am supplying the Buddy Lock myself as a giveaway as i think it is a great little accessory to any buggy 🙂

The Hairy Dieters Cookbook Giveaway

I would like to thank all of my followers, friends and fellow bloggers for reading our blog, I really do appreciate it and as a thank you I would like to give something back to you all by running a giveaway.

I bought a Cook book for myself last week and thought that this would make a fabulous giveaway for my blog so out of my own pocket I have bought one for one of my lovely followers to win. The book is ‘The Hairy Dieters’ and it is filled to the brim with some gorgeous and tasty recipes. I did not buy it because I want to lose weight I bought it for the delicious recipes that it holds and on Sunday I cooked there Lemon and Thyme Roast Chicken recipe, my family loves a good roast and this recipe went down just as well as any other roast we have had, in fact the OH said it tasted better than any restaurant he has ever ate a roast in and that it was his favourite by far. The chicken was succulent and the taste of lemon really came through in the chicken. The Thyme is placed under the skin so it is against the breast you do this by sliding your fingers under the skin carefully separating it from the flesh, the lemon is squeezed all over the skin and rubbed in and for extra lemony flavour I added some slices along with the thyme under the skin. I love this roast chicken recipe and will be definitely doing it again. The hairy bikers say that the skin is where the calories are so they advise not to eat it.

20130128-144715.jpg

The Hairy Dieters cookbook is full of hearty family meals, Pies, lunches, snacks and pudding and cakes. The Hairy Bikers Si King and Dave Myers are self confessed food lovers and between them have lost almost 6 stone by coming up with tasty recipes that are low in calories and big on flavour. Following their tips and advice in the book can help you bake your cake, eat it and lose weight too.

20130128-144205.jpgTo be in with a chance of winning a copy of this book please can you do the following:

  • Leave a comment below telling me your favourite recipe that you like to cook/bake.
  • Please tweet “I want to Love Food with @angoewright78 by winning The Hairy Dieters Cookbook http://wp.me/p234ki-Yg

Real Mum Confessions with Cussons&Me #RealMumConfession

Confession Time

Cussons MumAndMe are currently
running a campaign to discover ‘Real Mum Confessions’. As a Mum there are often little handy cheats or clever ways of doing something so that we can get some more time to ourselves or a way of getting our children to do something they wouldn’t normally do, MumAndMe are calling these a #RealMumConfession.

For example:

Telling your kids the ice cream van only makes a noise when it has run out of lollies (this is a favourite of mine, only now the children are getting older and start to ask questions like “why are there people walking away with ice creams then?”)

Pretending broccoli is mini trees, in order to get the children to eat veggies. We also say that Cauliflowers are clouds, eggs are sunshine and sweet corn turns you into a giant.

Saying that the smoke alarm is Santa’s special camera and when it flashes, it’s him watching to see if you’ve been good or bad. (Now this is a good one, I like it!)

Cussons Mumandme are calling parents to join in and share their #RealMumConfession on their Twitter feed (@Mumandme_UK) to help mums feel better about these little cheats and shortcuts that we all use. They are also really good and interesting to read and can give us all some new ideas. They will be picking one confession at random to win a luxury spa day for two at The Sanctuary Spa in London, plus three runners up will win a selection of our products.

The competition is running until Friday 2 November.
Take a look at BBC’s Sarah Cox video here of her talking about the shortcuts she does in parenthood.

I told my eldest boy when he was younger that blackcurrant juice was coke cola to keep him away from drinking fizzy drinks, it wasn’t until he started to attend friends parties at the age of 6 that he started questioning why the drink that he got from the party was fizzy and tasted different to the one I have given him at home.

Another one of my cheats are to store a secret stash of chocolate in my bedside cabinet and high up in the kitchen cupboard behind the pasta so I can have a nibble when they are asleep and I do not need to share (Badmummy)

– The competition is open to UK residents aged 18 or over
– The main prize is a Time For Two Gift Voucher at The Sanctuary Spa in Covent Garden
– The cost of travel or any accommodation is not included in the prize
– Three runners up will receive a range of products each
– Winners will be picked at random
– No cash alternative will be given
– The prize is non-transferable
– Cussons Mum & Me has the right to withdraw the competition at any time
– The competition is live from Wednesday 10th October until 5pm on Friday 26th October 2012
– Winners will be announced within seven days of the competition closing

Good Luck 🙂
