An Autumn walk round the local area

Sometimes we are neglectful of the beauty that surrounds us, so today we set off for a family walk of our local area armed with cameras to take snaps that represent certain colours so the boys could enter the Kids capture the colour competition.

These images are all taken my Mini on his Aldi camera which is a Maginon 8 mega pixel compact and cost less than £40.  Each image represents a colour, can you tell which?
The are from top:

Blue - the sky was a glorious colour today
Yellow - I adore the perspective on this one.  Sometimes we forget to look at things from our childrens level.
Red - the beautiful berries contracting with the sky
Green - making the most of the trees before the leaves all change colour
White - Alvin was shattered after his walk! 

Want to see Maxi's perspective, then visit Mum in the Madhouse.

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.
