Mario+ rabbits kingdom battle 

We’ve just purchased this game today after watching the build up to it on YouTube over the past months. 

My gamers 7 so still quite young and for this game has needed me to sit with him a lot to read the text bubbles. 

When I asked him what he thought of the game he says ‘it’s really good a little slow at the start because there’s lots to learn”

I also think that’s cos he’s not been able to independently play at the start due to needing me to help out with some of the words. 

The graphics are brilliant and I’m glad he’s found it a little slow as he’s been know to play through some new games in a matter of days. I’m sure this will be a game we play again and again and for a older gamer will be a fantastic game they can play independently, 

Well done Nintendo another fab game.

Mario kart 8 Nintendo switch

we pre-ordered this game when we bough the switch. bit of a drama as in a unorganised mum mode I lost the receipt which showed my hubby had paid for the game in full. oopps. Not wanting to admit it I rushed to game as soon as the game came out while pretending I was doing the banking for work. I said to the guy I’ve lost the receipt we for the game he looked at me blankly and said sorry love nothing I can do. WHAT…. I said you best find it or get your manager we paid for this on the night the switch launched it was you who served us and we was the only on here with a 7yr old as it was a school night (high-five to home-school). After what felt like hours was probably 10 minutes he arrived back with the game and said oh yes sorry it had your name on in the back handed me the game and I turned and walked off. ughh for not the best service even though it was my fault were not in the stone age now we have computers. Drama over.

I love this game on the wii-u and we spend many nights having family gaming night. There’s something about the switch that I’m disappointed with I feel like I’m rebuying all the games we have on the wii-u. they have small little extras on. Mario kart is a great family game and you can have hours of fun. would we rebuy it to play on the switch I asked issy (my little boy) he said no I just feel its a shame that the games we have for the wii-u aren’t compatible. we’ve also purchased lego city again we have played the full game in one player mode on the wii-u but as the second player during story mode there is a lot of time spent sat around waiting for the other play to complete the tasks.

we still have some ew games to play and have platoons on re order which were really looking forward to. Issy has plans o start his own gaming channel in the summer so hopefully he will be able to review the games for you.



busy few weeks.

Sometimes I don’t know where the time goes. I seem to link and he grows and weeks have gone past I realise I’ve a mountain of photographs to share and not had time to blog.

the past few weeks have been busy we got the keys to our new holiday lodge and have been busy visiting there organising things. We’ve had little days out and enjoyed the sunny weather. Although that has now disappeared here and it is currently throwing it down with rain.


he looks so excited to be having pizza and chips its his most favourite meal and he usually only eats our homemade pizza as he can be quite picky with food.

we’ve also been for his eye test review were now down to yearly check up as he is short sighted he will always need glasses which is great as he loves his ray bans. he made me promise they would be no stingy drops but no he’s old luckily we don’t need them. I managed to get a sneaky picture. I’ll be in trouble when he sees this.



Our new holiday home 

we picked the keys up to our holiday home a couple of days ago and went to get everything set up. The weather was nice but not warm. After setting up all the inside we went off to explore. 

The sites amazing and the facilities are out of this world. 

We spent the afternoon walking thecwoodland trail and playing mini golf. 

I went to put the rubbish in the bin stretched up and my pants fell down yep big mum fail and red face. Luckily I had a jules rain coat on and quick thinking little boy with me who jumped in front of me. I spent the rest of the day with my pants saftey pinned to my tshirt. Think I’ve lists to much weight when my size 6 pants fall off. Note to sell must eat more and stop being so anxious.
