Lego Create The World book and trading cards from Sainsbury’s

Earlier this week I was given a couple of packs of trading cards when I shopped at Sainsbury’s. It’s been a busy week so they lay forgotten at the bottom of my handbag until today. I got them out and noticed that they said Lego, so put them to one side to give to the children.

This afternoon we went to a larger Sainsbury’s and spotted the Lego Create The World book for £2. We picked up a copy to share and received a few more packs of trading cards when we were paying for our shopping.

We thought it would make for a fun video so here’s our thoughts on the new Lego Create The World book and trading cards from Sainsbury’s.

There are 140 LEGO Minifigures cards and LEGO CREATE cards to collect. Just keep shopping, just keep shopping…..

My nautical bathroom wishlist

Although we’ve been in our house for 2 years it’s taking us an awfully long time to decorate it as we would like. Our family bathroom is tiny and dated and most in need of updating. Over the last few days I have been scouring my favourite websites to find new fittings and fixtures I would like. My plan is to show my husband this post and get the ball rolling! Today I am sharing my nautical bathroom wishlist.

Most of my time was spent searching for shower enclosures as we need a new one. I’ve discovered they can be fun as well as functional and love this walk in enclosure from – perfect for a family bathroom, especially as the children seem to prefer showers to a bath these days.

Nautical bathroom wish list
I do love the nautical theme, I don’t think it ever goes out of fashion, so I have included some fun pieces from my favourite high street shops including a laundry basket, new towels and a little boat to decorate the windowsill.


Now I just have to mention this to my husband, because we all know if we can make our husbands think they came up with the idea themselves, a job gets done much quicker!

A shopping trip

This morning we headed off to Uxbridge for a spot of shopping. We took the bus as the tube has been shut for the last couple of weeks. These two were happy to head off for an adventure.

Despite trying my best not to, Big Brother came home with a few new toys. We found a new plane (Ripslinger) and a new Microdrifter (Jeff Corvette) which he didn’t have and just had to have. Oops – better not tell Daddy!
