We've been very busy this weekend trying out one of the Nosetastic prizes that are on offer. We took on a mission to take Red Nose Day 2015 to space by being an Astrosnort.
The prize is an out-of-this-world trip to the National Space Centre in Leicester to explore astronaut life as well as a hotel stay for the night plus travel. It's a pretty good prize.


We arrived around 11am on Saturday morning at the National Space Centre ready to take on our mission. We were all very excited to see what was inside as it was our very first visit.

Once inside there was so much to see and do. There's lots of little areas each featuring a different aspect of space, or planets or other fun stuff. Each area had lots to do inside. There was games to be played, fun things to do and lots of facts and information to read.


There was so much to take in, with every fact or new piece of info there was something to do or take part in to make learning fun. The activities were endless and the excitement levels were running very high. There were space suits and rockets and planets and more. My little man was in rocket heaven, he was so into everything and really enjoyed every minute. I think we all did, there was activities to suit all ages.

Inside the Uk's largest Planetarium we got to watch an amazing 3D show called 'We are Aliens' which showed us all the signs of life that scientists were looking for and what the planets looked like. As we sat in our chairs, the screen filled the whole ceiling surrounding us. It was an amazing experience, my favourite part of the day. Lying there under the stars was such a great feeling, the show's effects were so detailed and real.


Our adventure was spread over four floors so there really was a lot to do. We got to go on a Space Simulator ride which was lots of fun even if the queue was a little long. My girls made their very own weather forecast video in their 'Weather Pod' which was lots of fun.

Daddy joined Lily and Ryan inside a Space Shuttle Pod which was connected to a Launch Panel being controlled by Chloe and myself, we got to tell them what to do to help them launch their ship successfully into space. Again this was lot of fun to do together.


We coloured pictures and solved puzzles. We got to see what we looked like in an Astronaut suit and we got to see what it was like to walk on the moon. I loved the little outfit stations that were dotted around the centre where the kids could try on clothes and wear them for the day. There were lots of little space men and stars walking around which was great. My eldest Chloe was a star for a while whilst Lily was in a space helmet. Ryan didn't want to dress up as he was too busy laughing at his sisters.


We got to touch real moon rocks and blast our own rockets up into the air. We had a fantastic day. We had a really did have a great family fun day out. 

There was so much to see and do that I don't think we actually got to see it all. We left around 4.30pm just before closing time at 5pm as we had to get back but we had a fantastic day out. Who knew space could be so much fun. We are so glad that we got to go.

A trip to the National Space Centre is just one of the fabulous prizes to be won. If you're a fan of Weetabix then this is definitely a competition worth getting involved in as it's all for a great cause and there really is lots of fab, fun days out to be won. It's worth a try.

Disclosure: We were given the chance to experience one of the prizes so that we could share our experience with you to help promote this fabulous competition. 
Please note that the competition prizes are for one adult and 1 child.

Morph your Man with a Morphsuit this Valentines Day #Review


Morph your Man with a Morphsuit this Valentines Day


If you're looking for an alternative gift for your man this Valentines Day, why not buy him a Morphsuit for hours of fun and laughter. Men are really tough to buy for on Valentines Day as they don't like flowers, teddies, chocolates or balloons like us women do.

Why no surprise him with something fun and completely different this year. Morphsuits.Com has an awesome range of morphsuits to fulfill every man's dreams. 

Has your partner ever wanted to be a Superhero or a Film star? Maybe an animal or even a man in uniform? Whatever he wants to be, he can in a morphsuit.

My son is a huge Spiderman fan so I decided to get Daddy an Amazing Spiderman 2 Morphsuit just to see his reaction and boy am I so glad I did.

Meet Daddy Spider Man:


As you can see, Daddy loved his Spideman morphsuit and really got into character for our little photo shoot. My little man Ryan was absolutely delighted, he was so excited he ran around the house shouting 'My daddy's a Superhero' but he now wants one in his size too.


The Amazing Spiderman 2 Morphsuit costs £40.99 and comes in a choice of 4 sizes. This new Spiderman suit has even more detailing, larger eyes, brighter colours and the varying width of web on the body highlights muscle curvature. It's a pretty cool suit, I love it!

The details are really cool and the suit itself fits really well. There are two zips at the back so you can zip up from the bottom and down from the top making it more manageable. Daddy did comment that he couldn't do it up completely by himself so he wouldn't really be able to wear it going out on the town as he'd worry he wouldn't be able to zip himself back up.

It is perfect for wearing at home to entertain the children and would also be great for Halloween parties or any Fancy Dress parties in general that we attend together so that I could help him if needed. He loved the suit and found it very flattering which I have to agree.


 In addition to the incredible detail with this Amazing spider-man 2 costume for the first time ever you get to fire spiderman's web. It is the first time a costume has given you spideys web slinging ability, which you'd presumably use whilst saying "Go web go".

So how does it work? .. It's simple, it's all about augmented reality. You download the free app, select the 'Zappar' segment, get a pal to view the target on your hand through the phone and watch the digital web zoom out. It's a pretty cool feature to have on a suit.

Morphsuits are lots of fun and do look really cool. Daddy would never have bought himself one but now that he has it, I think he secretly does love it like most men would. Morphsuits could make a really fun gift for Valentines Day, if you were to buy one - which would you pick? I love the Spiderman one as it's fun for both Daddy and the kids but I do love the uniform ones that they do too, I've always wanted a man in uniform.

Disclosure: I was sent a sample in return for an honest review.

Wine O'Clock with Lindeman’s Wine #Review

Wine O'Clock with Lindeman’s Wine 


Lindeman’s is a story of 170 years of continued entrepreneurship anchored in the Hunter Valley under the Australian sun. From wines for everyday embodied by the iconic Bins Series, to innovations such as the Lindeman’s Early Harvest and the regionally distinct wines of Coonawarra and Hunter Valley, Lindeman’s epitomises a positive outlook.

This weeks Wine O'Clock has been made up of two bottle of Lindeman's Wines this week. I don't drink every night but do have the odd glass when I fancy it once the kids are in bed. My favourite type of wine is Rose as it's the fruitiest of the bunch or so I think. 


Lindeman's Bin 35 Rose is lovely and bright coloured. It's fresh and fruity and not too dry, just the way I like it. You can definitely taste the red berries in it, there's a real strawberries and cherry sweetness too. I really liked this bottle, it's 100% my fave out of their range.


If you're a white wine drinker then Lindeman's has so many different whites to choose from. This week I got to try their Chardonnay which I actually quite liked. I don't often drink white wine (unless I run out of Rose) as a lot are too dry for my liking but this one was quite nice.


The Lindeman's Bin 62 Chardonnay has lots of flavours to enjoy, there's a real mixture of raste in this one giving it a real depth to it. It's a very crisp wine with a fresh taste to it. There's a slight taste of peaches with melon mixed with a smoked oak kind of flavour.


I've had the pleasure of trying Lindeman's wines before so I kind of already knew how good they were but I'm always happy to try them again and again and again.

If you like a nice wine that doesn't break the bank, then Lindeman's could be the one for you. They have lots of different wines to choose from, I've never seen so many bottles. If I see Lindeman's on the shelf in my local supermarket, I'm more than happy to buy it over other brands. It's delicious and great priced which is just what I want from my wine.

#WIN an amazing Swoops Scooter Balance Bike.

WIN an amazing Swoops Scooter Balance Bike.


I am excited to show you our latest competition prize. One of you very lucky readers is going to win this gorgeous Swoops Scooter Balance Bike from the Garden Furniture Centre.

It's an ideal first bike perfect for any little boy or girl. This funky owl themed scooter will have them riding around in no time at all. Make their first lessons in learning to ride fun and safe. The Swoops bike is sturdy but lightweight, made from wood with solid rubber tyres.

My little man, Ryan had a balance bike a few years back and loved it. It was so much fun for scooting along on when we were out in the park. He'd speed down the hills and zoom all around the paths. Balance bikes are a great way for young children to learn how to balance before trying to ride a big bike. After a year on a Balance bike my Ryan rode a big boy bike first time as he had already mastered his balance skills. I was so proud.

The Swoops Scooter Balance Bike has got strong wooden wheel hubs and Tyre Eva solid rubber tyres. It's been updated with a printed logo and has fab mountain rubber tyres and rubberised handlebar grips. I almost wish I could have a go on this myself.

The Swoops Scooter Balance Bike would cost you £59.99 but one of you are going to get it for free! I wish I was you right now - I'm so excited about this giveaway.
