Ecover Washing Up Liquid

Ecover have been going for a few years now and in fact I regularly use the Ecover Laundry Bleach to help keep Tilly's clothes white. Only the other week I had to use it to get rid of some orange ink that had spilled on to Tillys brand new white dress, and it has completely got rid of the stain. The reason that we use Ecover is because it is a brand that has ethics that means it is eco friendly and helps us to look after our envronment.Recently we have been introduced to Ecover washing up liquid.

Finding Dory Glasses from Specsavers - available now #backtoschool


When it comes to your kids there is nothing more important than their health and well being, that is why it is so important for us to get their eyes checked regularly. It is free on the NHS for under 16s and they also get free glasses if they qualify for the voucher. If a child has problems with their eyesight and it is corrected before the age of 8 years old, then they are unlikely to need glasses as they get older. Tilly wears glasses and we didn't know until she was 5 years old and now we are working at sorting them out for her.

Coming To THe End Of Our Holiday

So here we are, a time that I knew would be here soon enough! we are on our way to our last destination - Copenhagen. Quite how we have survived it, I am not sure. we have certainly learned a thing or two on our travel. I never knew that Berlin was its own country until reunification in 1989.
The west Berliners had their own passports and they didn't say they were part of West or East Germany. We have learn't about The Harburgs in Vienna and that was carried on through to Budapest and then to Berlin, So they were quite a prominent historical family through out Europe.

 I have learned that Europe really is a small place that is safe to visit, despite all of the scaremongering that is going on at the moment because of the press coverage about the Islamic state and their terrorism. Whilst I was away there were incidents in London and even in my own home town a 12 year old was arrested for brandashing a knife at a train station. So to me, this summer Europe is safer than my own country! There were a few shady moments, like the one where we ended up in the most minging of hotels in Budapest and it looked like it was in the red light district, where all the down and outs lived! We didn't hang around and soon found somewhere else to sleep. There was the time in Brno when we were lost at about 8pm and we had to show some random people our apartment details,Luckily they were very helpful and they showed us the way, but it could have ended up so differently because if they had been dishonest and the 'wrong type' of people!  You don't think about danger until afterwards sometimes and then think to yourself ''oops''.

She's convinced that a successful husband is all she needs to change their attitudes. So when she and her friends come up with a brilliant new way to meet eligible men, Allie squeezes into her sister's stylish clothes and sneaks into continental breakfast at an upscale hotel to find herself the perfect guy.

The longest train journey EVER


Oh my days, I swear I am on the longest rail journey EVER today. We had decided to split the journey between Berlin and Amsterdam in to two halves. It would have taken nearly 7 hours to have travelled in a day and that is too long for me to sit still let alone make my 6-year-old sit still for that amount of time. If we finish this whole holiday without getting DVT I will be so surprised! Tilly is coping amazingly well, she is still not complaining about the amount of travelling and the carrying of her bags. She does however get excited when we tell her that we are staying somewhere for more than one day. Whenever we get to a new city and it is early we drop our baggage off in lockers, it usually costs 5 euros for all of our bags and we can leave them for up to 24 hrs, Tilly calls this the best part of the day, she says she is in heaven.

iRead Book Tours present Party With a Plan by Randy Haveson


We were asked to join a book tour for Party With a Plan by Randy Haveson, That has taken place from July 18 until today. So let me introduce you to the book.



Book Description:

Finally! Here is a proven, practical way to drink alcohol and lower your risk for problems. Up until now, there have been two primary messages when it comes to drinking alcohol. One is “just say no,” which for the majority of the population is not an option. The other is to “drink responsibly.” But what does that mean? If you ask five random people to define responsible drinking, you will most likely get five completely different answers. This invalidates the term because it can be defined in so many different ways. Party with a Plan® gives a concise and research based formula that teaches people how to drink and lower their risk of negative consequences. It’s like creating a speed limit for drinking. If you stick to the speed limit, your chance of problems is minimal. However, the more you go over the speed limit, and the more often you go over the speed limit, the more you put yourself and others at risk. This book is long overdue!
