Friday Night Lights on Netflix

It has been a while since I found a new series to watch, one that has multiple seasons just sitting on Netflix waiting for your to devour. I saw Molly over from Mother’s Always Right mention Friday Night Lights on her Instagram recently and went over to Netflix...

Netflix and us

Netflix has changed the way we watch TV in this house.  I recently gave Ben (age 7) the choice of keeping the TiVo box so he can rewind and pause the freeview channels, or keeping the Netflix subscription as they are the same cost per month.  He quickly chose Netflix....

HTC One M9 Review

The people over at Three knew I liked my gadgets and asked if I wanted to review a HTC One M9. It was an interesting one for me, as I have only used an iPhone for the last 7 years.  Before that I had a very old style windows phone with a stylus, so I haven’t...

All of the shops are full of Halloween costumes at the moment.  But the trouble is, everyone ends up looking the same at the kids parties and events. But it can be overwhelming to try and think of a costume to make at home that doesn’t involve expensive trips to...

A very happy Lego boy…

He is obsessed. And I have to say as toys go, I fully support the Lego obsession Ben has.  His bedroom is a bit ridiculous, once a week I/we clear the floor, but then within 2 days it is back to more Lego than carpet. But he loves it, every morning he gets up and he...
