Another Madagascar Adventure

They say that many good things come in sets of three, and in some cases, films are no exception. One prime example of this is the Toy Story trilogy, which was phenomenally successful amongst adult and child audiences because it blended humour, drama and a great storyline effortlessly. While the same can’t be said for a most other kids’ film franchises, many of them are entertaining enough to keep the little ones occupied at Vue cinemas for at least a couple of hours, and Madagascar 3 certainly falls into that category.

The third instalment in the trilogy follows the group of misfit wise-cracking animals as they end up unwittingly joining a circus. Following on from their trips to Africa after escaping a zoo in the first of the three films, they get caught up in the same over-the-top shenanigans that have won the series such a wide audience of kids, not to mention a few adults who’ve been suckered into the story along the way when visiting the cinema to accompany them.

With the Christmas holidays gradually coming into view, it might be worth considering taking the kids to see the film. I do all I can to make sure that my kids are happy, as their happiness improves my wellbeing, and to try and keep them entertained one weekend, I went to see Madagascar 3 with them. They loved it from start to finish, and even I laughed once or twice, and it’s likely to be in cinemas for the next couple of months, so if you want a break from Christmas shopping, seeing this film is the perfect way to rest your tired feet.

Dumping the tumble dryer and Ecoforce giveaway

We have a tumble dryer, but it broke before christmas and we  couldn't afford to get it repaired, so I have been managing with an old fashioned wooden clothes rail and hanging bedding over the doors to dry, This last would of weeks however, I have been hanging the washing outside and it has been drying much quicker and with less creases, so I am going to take the plunge and instead of getting the dryer replaced I am going to give it away. Ecoforce heard me on twitter bemoaning the fact that I was chasing laundry round the garden as my pegs were not working and very kindly sent me some of their Ecoforce pegs to try and they have been fab. So in conjunction with Ecoforce I have a year's supply of green cleaning and washing up wonder products worth £50 comprising the following: EcoForce Peg Basket x 1 EcoForce Clothes Line x1 EcoForce Pegs x 2 packs Several of each of: EcoForce sponges, scourers, cloths, duster and bag grips Dishmatic Dishmatic Refills x
