Tayto Park Revisited…

Last Summer we took a trip to Tayto Park and the kids absolutely loved it! You can read our initial review here.  This year we had some friends visiting all the way from Texas, and they’re mad for everything Irish which includes Tayto crisps!  They’ve been to Ireland many times but hadn’t gotten to Tayto Park yet so we had to bring them along.  We went last Saturday (June 24th) nice and early. We got there for about half 10 because I thought the place would be jam packed.  There was no queue at all going in which was grand. I asked the (very friendly) security guard how busy it […]

Alflorex Update – For My Child That Lives On Movicol…

So about 6 or 7 weeks ago I posted a picture of a box of Alflorex PrecisionBiotics with a description saying that my child has lived on movicol for years with very little improvement, and saying that I was going to give this a go to see if it helps. I really was blown away by the amount of comments. The post reached over 26,000 people and there were hundreds of comments from parents saying they have the exact same problem. It actually made me feel better in a way knowing that so many kids are having the same problems and it’s not just my son! It made me feel […]

The Weatherbies are loveable weather themed friends who live in Skytown, a magical fantasyland above the earth’s ozone layer. Em, how cute??   I was kindly sent out their first book ‘Sammy Sun Is Coming Out To Play’ for review recently.  Created & written by Northern Ireland Mum Yvonne Fleming for her own two sons, Sammy Sun and his Weatherbies pals decide to have a race.
