Review on SONY A5000 Camera

Hello,
Sorry the photo isn't great, it would have been much better had I took it with my new camera but that would have involved a camera selfie and to be quite honest I would rather not scare any readers away, as today was a PJ day for my family with the weather being shoddy so I'm now in need of a shower after all the running around today. Its the start of the half term and the kids have run me ragged already, though I do really enjoy them being off school for family days even if it is just to parks.
So as half term was coming up and we have a weekend break planned the hubby and I decided to invest in a camera, we normally use our phones which do have decent cameras on but its just not the same as using a real camera.
We went for the SONY A5000 after reading some pretty good reviews and it having everything we wanted and needed. Its a compact camera so its much smaller than a bridge camera, which makes it slightly lighter and easier to hold and store away. I personally thi…

Hair today gone tomorrow

Ok here goes, as much as I hate having my photo taken I have decided to take one of my terrible after pregnancy hair and share it with the whole world of internet mummy's. I really am a very self conscious person so for me this is a huge step, I am one of those people that worries when I walk out the door people will look at that extra bit of weight I've gained recently or the fact I haven't washed my hair for a couple of days and I've cheated with the dry shampoo and think I'm a slob, I know deep down most people aren't as judgemental as the thoughts running through my head say they are but that doesn't change the way I feel. Unfortunately I really haven't had that much choice this time round, it all started just after giving birth to my fourth daughter, hair loss after pregnancy is something I've always had to endure only this time it was different.

I woke one morning went to the bathroom mirror, brushed my hair and started to pull it back into a…

Exams

Ok I have decided to do a blog once a week as I dont always have time to update every day and I have tried to write this post three times and every time I do something happens like, the kids fighting over a blue crayon or fighting over the colour of a silly ikea plate and so on.
This week I decided to have a rant about childrens exams because my 11 year old daughter is currently sitting her year 6 sats. I have been relatively lucky as my daughter hasn't stressed out over these tests but I do know that plenty of children have. I think its a disgrace to have children so young suffering anxiety and put under so much pressure all so the government can see how well the school is performing. Shouldn't the children be asessed all throughout the year and make the tests less stressful by making it casual. When I was in primary school I dont remember it being a very big deal or maybe I just wasn't that bothered, I mean I have to admit I was never very bright and was always a bit of …

Not more Ironing

Hi all, apologies for not blogging yesterday I was left with the mundane task that all us parents have to deal with on a regular basis, THE IRONING. This is something I absolutely dread thanks to the fact my children think its ok to change their clothes about five times a day, im sometimes tempted to put locks on their drawers so they cant get in to keep changing.
Im also partly responsible as I dont do my ironing half as much as I should im going to be totally honest and say that sometimes I will skip it a whole week and end up with two weeks worth of ironing which is a death sentence for a family of six. So when I eventually pluck up the courage to pull all of my ironing out of the cupboard  I always feel so much more organised. Now I know there will be some people questioning this thinking "well why dont you just make time to do it every week and you will always feel organised." My answer to that is, Im sorry I actually dont have a good answer to that other than I just si…

Flamingo Land Review

I decided to do my next blog as a review for flamingo land as this was the first time myself and my family have visited this attraction. We went for may bank holiday as Wish FM had a special offer for half price family tickets so it only cost £60 as we have two children 3 years and under that were free. The gate price would have been £120 so it is a great savings for a family day out. When we arrived there was ample parking which is free.
There was a pirate show on at 11am at the main entrance of the park which my children loved even my 11 year old got enjoyment from it as there was singing and dancing. My first impressions of the park were it was spacious and clean. I try to avoid using public toilets as much as I can as there normally always quite dirty in these types of places from so many people using them, this was not the case at this park the toilets were spotless and obviously cleaned regular throughout the day. The rides were all very well maintained as none looked old or wor…
