Disneyland Paris 2018 Trip Report Day 5

You can read all about day five here. After breakfast, we headed over to the Walt Disney Studios and opened up the Lineberty app around 9.40am to try and book a meet with Captain America and Buzz Lightyear. I opened the app on both my phone and my husbands. I managed to book a slot for Buzz Lightyear in twenty minutes time, and Captain America around 3pm. We headed straight over to where the Buzz Lightyear meet was in Toon Plaza. There’s been some confusion over the way in which the bookable characters can be booked. It appears that a lot… [Read More]

Disney Bedroom Makeover

We’ve been living in our current home for around three years. When we first moved in we promised our twin girls that we would decorate their bedroom. Fast forward three years and we still hadn’t got around to decorating it. We’re renting so spending money on redecorating a home we don’t own wasn’t top of the list of our priorities. However, our twins turned six years old this year and the Frozen themed curtains just seemed too babyish all of a sudden. After our holiday to Disney, we promised our girls that we would redecorate their bedroom. I didn’t want… [Read More]

How to Host a Charity Coffee Morning

A few days ago I wrote an update post about my charity fundraising for WellChild. I’m running the London Marathon for them next April, and have a fundraising target of £1,600. With such a big target I wanted to start fundraising right away to give myself the best chance of hitting and hopefully exceeding that target. One of the events that I’d planned was a coffee morning. Taking advantage of a school inset day on a Friday, I decided to open up my house and garden to local parents and their children for a few hours in the morning. Having… [Read More]

Disneyland Paris 2018 Trip Report Day 4

To read all about day three, please click here. After the excitement of yesterdays Marvel Superhero Meal, my husband and I decided that today should be a bit more relaxed. After a buffet breakfast in the Disneyland Hotel, we headed into the park with no plans, but to enjoy the day. As we walked up Main Street, we saw that there was a very short queue to meet Donald Duck so we decided to join. This was during Early Magic Hours (EMH). Donald Duck was great, and my husband got a pretty cool selfie with him! Donal Duck signed the… [Read More]

Is Tap Water Good For You Children’s Health?

A lot of parents get caught up in the debate as to whether or not they should give their children tap water. Some people swear by it and say it’s cheaper than bottled water, and can actually provide some health benefits. Other people say that bottled water is the way forward as it’s naturally cleaner and safer than tap water. Who is right? Is tap water good for your children’s health or not? To try and suss things out, we should take a look at the pros and cons of tap water: Image Source Cheaper Than Bottled Water I think… [Read More]
