I’m always on the lookout for Christmas gifts for Toby and Gabe that are not only fun but will help them learn too. They are both eager to learn how to tell the time (although Gabe doesn’t really understand it too well at the moment) and are always looking at the clocks in our house and asking what time it is.

Blimey, week 47 already! It feels like the last third of this year is absolutely flying by. This week has been another normal one for us really. The boys got to wear Pudsey t-shirts for school and nursery this week – they were supposed to wear spots but I always just buy the t-shirts instead. That way I’m donating to a good cause as well as not having to worry about finding them something to wear! Read more

Here’s a helpful guide for picking out your next mobile phone. Read more
As we get closer to Christmas I’m always on the lookout for new toys, especially ones that would suit both Toby and Gabe. Finding toys that can be enjoyed by a three year old and five year old together isn’t always easy so when I was asked if we would like to review Zoom Tubes Car Trax I was hopeful that they would fit the bill.
