     Linking in with Emma @ crazy with twins sharing my Wednesday words ;-)

    Flat Pack Hell

    I am someone who doesn't ever read instructions...I don't know why...but I never do, often I find it easier just to figure it out myself..... UNTIL I cant figure it out anymore and I don't have a blooming clue. then I will reach for the instructions...Doh
    I do think I can be my own worst enemy sometimes.

    My husband kindly went to work and left me with flat pack hell......HELP.... he reminded me, how good and quick I am at putting things together... yeah right.. cheeky hubby....
    Ok I tell myself this has got to get done and hubby's let me get stuck in.... begrudgingly.

    Although I do remember the good old days when fixing flat pack together was fun....really did I say that... yeah I enjoyed it, Me and hubby fixing things over a cuppa....SO why now do I hate it soooooo much.

    Well maybe because I have done so many over the years and plus when you have your kids dangling off your neck whilst trying to figure out which screw you need could be a telltale sign....or maybe I'm fed up of all the mess and crumbs of polystyrene that are left behind...
    speaking of polystyrene .....when my kids get hold of it and it looks like we had an indoor snow storm.....stress....:-(

    So once the flat pack is finished you can step back and proudly look at your handy work OR if like me just count your blessing that it will still be standing in the next six you head of for a well needed cuppa and bloody toe...(which good squashed under the wood).

    Another school holiday has ended and I have been working through most of it AGAIN although I must admit I have had some fantastic days out with the family.....But we have been thinking its time we all headed off on holidays together.....Strangely enough my niece headed off to Egypt for her 1st wedding anniversary and my sister in law is due back from Turkey any day now...So I'm really feeling like a getaway.

    I'm just in the process of filling out all of our passport forms so we can hopefully get away this year somewhere hot and sunny...would be nice...somewhere where we can explore and have fun and relax with the family.
    It will be out first holiday as a family so I can't wait.... We are planning a last minute late deal with
    Late hopefully sometime in the summer holidays....where.....well anywhere will do !!!!

    Having Fun On Micro Scooters

    My boys love zooming along on their amazing new Micro Scooters........ There's nothing they like better then racing along together...... We have even taken them on several shopping trips and
    trips to the local park and my boy's just cant get enough.

    We have always been scooter fans.....So we were delighted to be testers of the amazing Micro Scooters.
    We tested two scooters from Micro Scooters range the Micro Maxi and MX Trixx Scooter and here are our verdicts on them both

    The Micro Maxi Scooter is prefect for my youngest son who is aged 7.....who is not really into tricks and stunts (yet) he still likes the 3 wheels as he can leave the scooter and it will remain upright and is more sturdy and require less balancing.
    My son loves to cruise along and what is great is.... he can lean and tilt the scooter to steer its direction....which he really likes....
    We love the design especially the colour choice....and what is fab its perfect for him and will grow with him as it has adjustable handlebars which means he can use it until the age of 12...absolutely great.

    The MX Trixx Scooter is a very strong and sturdy scooter suitable for beginners like my son who want to do stunts and tricks....Its lighter yet perfect in design .... it has shorter handlebars to make riding easier and metal core wheels.
    My son adores this scooter he feels so much more grown up and was defiantly ready to move on to two wheels.....He loves the design and colour which looks very cool.
    He has been enjoying his Scooter and can wizz along and balance with ease...he has been using the flexi break at the back and is keen to learn new tricks.......The Micro MX Trixx Scooter is a cool stunt scooter which is more suitable for his age range.
    He has been having lots of fun racing with his cousin and likes to speed along testing his limits
    "as much as I can bare".
    I'm sure we will be heading to our local ramp park to experiment very soon....Safety helmets and knee pads at the ready.

    It was great to test two very different Micro Scooters which had different design purposes .. yet both were amazing in quality and design.
    I love Micro Scooters.....As much as my boy's do...As a parent I want the best quality for my children and I'm so pleased I have found it in Micro Scooters not only in price but in durability and quality and design.

                                  Thank you to Micro Scooters my boys are over the moon.

    Micro Scooters has a varied range of scooters and scooter accessories suitable for children from aged 1 yrs to adult....From sitting down scooters and cruising along to stunt scooters for older children.

    Mini Micro Seat For 1 to 3 yrs old
    Mini Micro Scooters for 3 to 5 yrs
    Micro Maxi for 6 to 12 yrs a
    Stunt Scooters for 8 yrs to adult
    Aluminium range from 5 yrs to adult

    Check out Micro Scooters for more information.

    We were given the Micro Scooters to test and keep....All opinions are that of my own and my children's...I have not been instructed in what I write and remain honest in my personal opinions and thoughts on this product.

    My Magic Moment....Family Outings.......We had a few already this year from going to the movies,Theatre and Sealife Centre.....But what I cant wait to do is head to the beach with the family.

    This picture was taken last year at the beach it was a lovely day,We had fish and chips and played in the sand.... and lots and lots of giggles....There is a picture somewhere of me on my butt in the sand.... as my boys and hubby chased me...but I couldn't find it....anywhere.

    We love going out together is always gives us great memories to look back on....Bring on the summer.


    Unwanted Guest - We Are Mouse Free

    As you may have read from my last post....We were having a MOUSE about it here

    But I'm happy to share we are now mouse FREE ....The mouse must have obviously sensed that the cat was around.....As it took to hiding inside the bathroom door again, which its hadn't done for a while.....and didn't come down all day as the cat was around.....
    So when I came in from work me and hubby cornered the mouse in the bathroom by blocking it in.....before kicking the door... which took a big kicking from us both.
    Eventually the mouse fell down and as it was in a small confined space we managed to catch the little sod.... and released him unharmed......Thank goodness... Sweetie the cat is going to stay with us for the next few days and then return home to his family......SUCCESS...Yay

    Unwanted Guest

    It's been over three weeks now and we have a unwanted guest in our home... It came uninvited and is causing mayhem and destruction this MOUSE is driving us mad and it shows no sign of ever leaving.
    At first a saw it as an Innocent little mouse who may have been looking for food.... So I tired to capture it in a humane way after watching a few you tube video and made this contraption which did work for the fella on you tube but obviously this mouse is just way to smart.....

    My husband by this point had enough .... Chewed up packets of food and droppings on the floor.....So he brought several mouse traps .... Which haven't worked at all ....So we called in the big boys The Exterminator.........And a big FAIL nothing nothing nothing..... has worked this mouse is so has managed to take the cheese..Jam you name it off of the traps and remain unharmed....Don't get me wrong I'd rather capture it and set it free....but when you have vermin and you end up cleaning poop before breakfast......YOU will do almost anything to get rid.

    So far I have cleaned hovered and disinfected galore....and don't know how much more I can take...I want rid before he/she decides to set up home have babies or call in their mates.

    After all attempts to catch it.....We have had enough....Nothing is working SO today we loan our cousins cat.....this has got to work..


    How very true is this quote.....For me its always the little things in life...that create the most memories and have the greatest impact ;-)
