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.

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop. 

Tissue paper poppy badges

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers. This year MadDad will also be marching in his capacity as Manager of the U7's football team.  We are great believers in remembering what people have done for us and the boys have been busy making tissue paper poppies at Beavers.

Don't feel pressured in to spending at Christmas and a giveaway

According to a recent survey by  Whyte & Mackay    46.2% of people confess to feeling pressured into spending £100-£200 more than they can afford.    I have to admit that this really shocked me, but them with the rising cost of things and also the unrealistic expectations of people it is often very hard to keep a lid on spending. Other irritations were: ·          Christmas dinner preparations (25%) . The most common complaint is when mum-in-laws unfavourably compare the way dinner is served to the ‘proper way’ (i.e. her way). ·          Cruel present choices (24%). The majority felt that parent-in-laws purposefully bought presents for them that they wouldn’t like, from terrible Christmas jumpers to regifting items already in their cupboards. ·          Fighting over board games (15%). The most frenetic choice is the team game of charades with 34% of those who have fought with their parent-in-laws coming to blows. Monopoly is the board game that seems to cause the least amoun
