Category Stuff to Keep Toddlers Busy

The Book of Life with a Pre-schooler

Given that half-term means all our normal scheduled child-busying activities weren’t  on, Weasel and I decided to go to the cinema to check out The Book of Life. I’d love to say this was some kind of informed decision, like I thought “I hear there’s a new film produced by Guillermo del Toro, that should […]

The House of Magic – Cats, magic, should be the perfect Weasel film

After weeks of sweltering weather and playing in gardens, parks and country houses, we thought we might have a break and go to the cinema. There are actually quite a few kids’ films on at the moment, being summer holidays and all, but Weasel went for The House of Magic due to her obsession with […]

Spaghetti Fun – More Things to Blame on Pinterest

Looking for something to keep Weasel and the Ninja busy for half an hour, and stop them from begging to watch telly (I’m starting to feel it was a bit of a mistake introducing them to Dora the Explorer this week, but more on that later), I thought I’d break out my kids stuff board on […]

The Lego Movie with a Toddler

Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy and Lots of Popcorn

With our newly found freedom to go to the cinema again, Weasel and I headed off post-gymnastics on Friday to see the new Tinker Bell film, Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy on opening day. My choice would have been the new Lego film, but Husband would be none too pleased if we saw that […]

Attempt 732 to Get Weasel to Recognise the Alphabet

Let’s start off with the admission that I have zero patience; not that this is any kind of revelation to those who know me personally. These kids are born, why can’t they bloody well read straight away?! What do you mean they can’t understand basic mathematics? How can they not see the difference between green […]

Garden Centres – Cakes, ‘Puppies’ and Potted-Plants

Slightly rainy Saturday? Too chicken to brave a softplay on a drizzled weekend? Out of fish food/greeting cards/Shih Tzu calendars/random sweets in jars/shit you never knew you wanted? Excellent, garden centre it is then. We did genuinely need fish food and a 2014 calendar (on sale for 50p, whoop whoop!), so the garden centre with […]
