Now before I start I have to say that this was not my movie of choice and I struggled to even follow the plot on this one. I began to wonder if I was on some sort of hallucinagenic drug at one point as the plot seemed so incredibly bizarre I couldn’t possibly be sober! That said Addi adores this move, she adores everything about it and especially the theme song. So if you are looking for a fun, family movie that the kids will love and if you’re a LEGO fan you’ll love too then this talked about movie of the summer is a must have addition to your movie collection.
My life is about to take on a whole new level of busy as I embark on a new job, working full time and with longer hours. Addi will be doing more after school clubs and there is about to become the quest to fit more stuff in the day in an even shorter time frame. With the winter ahead it’s the perfect time of year for my body to attract as the perfect ‘vessel’ for all the germs and lurgi that we tend to pick up when we get run down. It’s easy to forget to take care of ourselves and focus on everyone else but as a single mum working full time it’s vital I am at the top of my game mentally and physically. Thankfully for the six weeks I’ve been given a bit of a helping hand with the range of specifically tailored Daily 4 Me vitamins and supplements.
If you wear glasses then you’ll know there is nothing more annoying that losing them. One minute their on your head and the next you’ve put them down and can’t find them. I have lost track of the number of times over the gorgeous summer and late autumn sunshine that I’ve put my sunglasses on the roof of the car and nearly driven off with them there. Thankfully though this is now a thing of the past thanks to two forward thinking and creative designers Annie and Vanessa at FrameChain.
With the wonders of technology we can keep in touch with our kids wherever they are. In this day and age, when our smartphones are more than just phones, it’s a shame not to make use of the technology at hand – or in your pocket and the app from Folr allows you to keep track of anyone with a smartphone; for instance your kids, your partner (now that’s a relationship tester!) your own parents (nothing like a bit of return snooping for all those years).
It’s a terrifying yet useful technology.
Kids are fussy and not just about the food that goes in their lunch box. Gone are the days when a white Tupperware box would do for your sandwiches. Nope now you have to have the latest character lunch box or you’ll find yourself a table outcast come lunchtime. As a parent this presents problems. Character lunch boxes are a) expensive and b) kids fads change faster than they change their socks so keeping up with what’s ‘cool’ this week can present dilemmas.
Addi has her Monster High lunch box which she loves; this is her latest craze. Her entire birthday party theme revolves around this so let’s hope that that the obsession at least lasts until October 18th! However, a few weeks ago we were sent a rather cool lunch box that will no doubt continue to be cool for a long time.
