New Jelly Juice - Perfect For School Lunch Boxes

Last year we reviewed some of the fantastic Jelly Juice, check the post out here

They have since had a new makeover and reduced fruit sugar and the jelly juice is now gelatine free. So it's suitable for everyone and is more healthier than before.

 Raiden does a sports session on a Tuesday after school so I've been packing a Jelly juice in his lunchbox for then. The texture itself is smoother and it tastes just like a thick drink rather than a lumpy one. The pouch style is great for lunch boxes or on the go, as you can open then seal them back up without them being bulky and taking up lots of room. 

Comes in the following yummy flavours.

Cardboard Dream House Ocean Finance

A few weeks ago we was sent a cardboard house to decorate for Ocean Finances competition, check it out here 

We had so many ideas on how to design the house, Gingerbread house, an Elf house with lots of toadstools painted on and a Halloween house. We decided to go with a Halloween haunted house as its now October and we all love Halloween as a family. 

The house itself is a very sturdy house and it slotted in very easy and was great to paint. The kids really enjoyed painting and decorating their haunted house and was full of spooky ideas. 

Th kids painted and carefully chalked on the design of the house making it creepy as possible. They added spider webs and plastic spiders in the window and door. 

A hanging Skeleton on the corner of the house. In the other window is a homemade eggbox bat with huge fangs. 

We added some lanterns and a ghost at the front of the house ready for some trick or treaters. 

Along with some pumpkin lights for some lighting. The kids had real fun making and playing in the house, it's been decided that are are both sleeping in it tomorrow after school.

Horror Block September

Last month was a great month for Horror Block this month just seemed to be a bit Meh again for me. It had some really good themes but just left me slightly disappointed. Here was the items included. The themes that was mentioned sounded great Aliens, silence of the lambs and I already knew about the night of the living dead DVD. 

Silence of the lambs t-shirt - I normally love the t-shirts from Horror block but this just seemed a bit blokey for my liking.  

Exclusive night of the living dead DVD & magnet set 

Rue Morgue magazine 

Exclusive horror face coaster set 

Exclusive alien Titan 2 pack figure - I'm not a huge fan of the Titan figures, I prefer Funko's.

A Secret To Beating The Stay-At-Home Stress

Life at home with little ones can be hectic, and any stay-at-home mum will have the odd moment when they feel they’re rushed off their feet and the thought of going to a ‘normal office job’ might seem like a vacation. But, overall, the majority of stay-at-home mums wouldn’t swap places for the world. It’s so great to be able to be there for your kids whenever they need you, to be able to meet them at the school or nursery gate and to take them to the park on the way home from school. If you were working a nine-to-six job, that simply wouldn’t be a possibility. 

However, being at home with young kids can be stressful, so it’s great if you’ve got a game that you can log in to help you unwind now and then. And a game like bingo is just perfect for when you want five minutes of downtime, without having to book a babysitter to achieve it! Choose your moments - when the kids are occupied with their favourite TV show, or having a nap - to have a little relaxation time yourself. 

There are so many different bingo sites such as bgo, Tidy Bingo or Comfy Bingo to play at, and many of them give great welcome bonuses to new players. If you sign up atbgo.com/bingowith just £10, you get an extra £40 to play with – that’s a 400% bonus! Other sites have similar offers and with most bingo games costing only pennies to play, that amount of bonus cash will give you plenty of entertainment value. 

For anyone who’s never played bingo, you may be wondering about the appeal. The great thing about bingo is that it’s a really simple game of chance – so it’s ideal for something to relax and unwind with. If you’ve felt hassled during the day, sitting down to a game of bingo can be almost meditative – until you come close to winning, that is! With the online game, the software puts in all the effort for the player – marking the numbers on your cards as they match the bingo calls. If you have a win, it’s logged automatically. So, if you have to leave the screen mid-game, you’ll still get your win. In fact, on many sites, it’s possible to pre-buy tickets for games you don’t want to miss, so even if you can’t sit down to play at the scheduled times, your cards will still be played for you. 

There are always plenty of free games on the bingo sites, too. It’s a way of rewarding regular players’ loyalty. We all like the idea of getting something for nothing, after all. Although they cost nothing to play, the free games have cash or other prizes attached to them and, even if you don’t win, you still have the fun of playing. 

Unlike some other online games, bingo has a real social element to it. That’s probably why it’s such a popular choice with stay-at-home mums. Although you might not have time for a long natter on the phone, you can dip in and out of a bingo chat room as you feel like it. There’s company there whenever you need it, but no obligation to stay if you’re too busy. You never know who you might meet in a bingo chat room, but the odds are that anyone who’s there will be up for a bit of a giggle and gossip while watching their cards progress – just like you. 

Next time you want something fun to do online to break up the daily routine, give online bingo a try!
