My Sunday Photo

We recently moved house to an area that is a lot different to what we are used too. Before we lived near a town centre and a busy stadium, there were always people walking past our house.

Since moving its been very quiet, it’s a new housing estate and we are one of the first people to move in, theres still lots of building work going on and houses been built. But the views and the woods here are beautiful, the birds are singing all the time and the greenery is lovely. We feel like we are in the middle of nowhere.

While opening the window the other morning in our bathroom I caught this photo and it was just beautiful to me.





My Month in a Minute- June

Well this is a little late isn’t it due to having no internet and a house move, I was unable to put this video up.

So, June was a busy month for us and lots of things seemed to be happening but thing made it difficult for me to film some of it. There was quite a bit of stress going on as we were packing up our house to move. Work was busy and then there was the referendum that was taking place. All in all I was glad to see the back of June so we could make a new start for our family.

Here is what I did manage to film, I hope you enjoy and feel free to join up with the linky held by Helpfulmum.



Month in a Minute

Dobble – Review

Are you like me when we are heading out for meals,and while you are waiting for food to arrive. Which sometimes can take a while, you find your kids wanting to go on you phone, or they have bought some tech device with them…. It can get a bit frustrating. Or even long car journey where all you hear is Are we there yet?


DobbleSo when I got the chance to take a look at the game Dobble at Blog On this year I thought it would be a great game to throw in my handbag for occasions where we are having to wait for food etc. We are big gamers in our house with a growing collection of board games and Dobble has been a family favourite for a few weeks now.


You can see its perfect to go in a handbag.Dobble

A little more about Dobble its a game for between 2 and 8 players aged 6+. Players compete with  each other to find a matching symbol on their card to another card. All the cards have different symbols on them but they also have one symbol that is on all the other cards too. Finding a match can sometimes be difficult as you are under pressure to find a match before someone else does. There are also 5 other ways to play with this game and that’s always great to keep us on our toes and not get bored with just one game to play.


We have really enjoyed playing Dobble and it can sometimes get a bit competitive between me and the Mr, but I think clearly I

have better eyesight than him lol. You can see here the face of a winner and the fave of a loser can you tell which is which??

We have taken this game with us to quite a few places so far and it also means that sometime we can be a bit rowdy but people seem to be interested in knowing what game we are playing.

I really do think this is a game we will be playing for a long time and well I think I need to buy extras so we can keep them in the car to for those long journeys and at the price of £12.99 on amazon I cant complain.

I have even discovered that there is a Star Wars version of Dobble for all you Star Wars fan out there, this will be released in the autumn time along with a  Cars version based on the Disney film. They do have a Finding Dory version available now Dobble

Have you played Dobble before let me know what you think of it.
