Meet The Air Puppy Cuddle Crew



"Where being individual is the only way to fit in "

A new range of plush soft toys will land in Boots Uk stores and boots.com September 2014. The Air puppy few is full of fun characters ( in fact the elephant is typing this now), each with their own unique personality. From the chilled out pals at Hickory shack, to the gentle farmyard friends of Hedgerley Farm and the long legged chums from Burford Yard , there's an Air Puppy for every child.

Each member of the cuddle crew has their favourite place to hang out , whether it's a row of beach huts at Hockory Shack with Maddyfox Monkey and his friends Woogie Zebra and Burrowbliss Bunny, or down Burford Yard with lifelong pals Patch Puppy and Peachtail Lamb. Children will love to create their own adventures with the Cuddle Crew, following their motto "Where being individual is the only way to fit in "!


Available in a variety of sizes and made from the softest plush material, the Cuddle Crew are extremely huggable and are prefect for all ages as their first toy. Each of the Air Puppy collections has its own unique style.





You can read the Air puppy stories and follow their adventures on their Facebook page

Air Puppy will be available to purchase from larger selected Bots UK from September 2014 from £12.00 upwards.

And I think it is a toy to remember and treasure , do you remember your first soft toy ?



Disclosure I was gifted the air puppy Elephant and was not told what to write. he is going to live with a colleagues of my husband who is expecting a baby.

My Heart Felt

Heart felt.


This the the village lodge cottage, I am forever wandering round , there is always something new to see.

I wanted to go by the river today but instead I got caught up putting the bunting away, which made me sad.



When the bunting was all gone, I took myself off down the lane towards the church which drew me in.

I've been so lost these past few weeks but I have found my way. My friends have been there for me and I'm greatful. 

I've found my photography eye has returned and I am tweaking my angles.



Looking forward I look back I see past mistakes yet I grow. If we don't face the past we don't learn.



My passion is what I see if I thought about what I did then I wouldn't be who I am.


Also today I kicked the leaves , I hope to go blackberry picking again. So I can last have autumn tripping upon my tongue.

A Bunting We Will Go

Yesterday I went bunting hanging, I've a weakness for bunting that I don't hide  and why should I ? bunting instills pride.



I was helping to bunt the village ready for the Duke Of Devonshire re dedicating the war memorial. Honour , pride respect, look to the past.




The fallen the echoes of the past calling through , the troops most likely marched out to bunting. The least we could do was to honour their memory.

Boutique Hostel Palmers Lodge

Hostels the backpackers paradise bastion of the young well it was until last month. I crashed into the world of youth hosteling , I'm probably 20 years too late ? . Necessity is what brought me to this hostel , know I understand hostels are not for everyone and that's fine.



I stopped a couple years ago in another hostel and it was nice but it didn't have the edge this one has. Just sticking the word boutique in front changes your perception , your suspicions are raised but when you get there .. Oh my.



There are a variety of dormitory set ups from 6 in a dorm etc , also there is all female. There is also a room to sleep by yourself or share with a friend but that will cost you more.

Sharing it cost me about £29 for the night and though that didn't include breakfast which is extra at £4.50 I felt it represented good value. Sleeping in a dormitory can be noisy so pack ear plugs and an eye shade ( one with a non inoffensive message) . Another situation to consider to to take shower shoes and a towel, no need to worry about sharing showers as they as individual.

The dorms are bunk beads with a privacy curtain, reading light and essential plug socket , what it appears you don't do is turn the main light on when everyone is sleeping ~ ooops sorry!



Facilities are good , there is a bar , a comfortable lounge and there is always someone to talk to , you can swap tips with fellow travellers.



If you want a change from soulless hotel chains then this will tweak your travelling repotoire. Laundry and gastro pub you'll have to blink to think you are somewhere not more expensive.



For more details and booking your stay visit the Palmers Lodge London  site: www.palmerslodges.com

And this isn't even a review I just thought I'd relay my experience .

The Lego Movie Awesome DVD Review

Awesome.



"Everything is awesome "

When a cartoon brings you such a tune that will stick in your head then you know that is going to a giggly, goofball bundle of fun that you are going to be waving your arms along to . If you are a fan of Will Ferrell when he was in Elf then you are going to enjoy this, crazy fun that appeals to children and adults alike.

The Lego movie is an hour and half in length , the main character is Emmet the construction worker who lives his life by a set of instructions. At work Emmet comes across Wildstyle and there is a arrow straight to his heart ( not literally) Wildstyle believes that Emmet is the 'special' one who will save the Lego universe.

Emmett being the special one they hope can  can help bring down Lord Business (Will Ferrell), he's recruited into a quest to save the LEGO Universe. Along on this quest is Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks) and her boyf the self-absorbed Batman (Will Arnett) and the Gandalf like Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman).

Emmett finds himself in a world of adventure but Bad cop ( Liam Neeson ) is on their trail determined to stop them.


If you haven't seen this then you must!

And if ever like me you kept your Lego instructions as a child and sometimes were against going against the instruction book then at the end you will see why it is important to break the rules of this.




Disclaimer : I was sent a copy to review and thought words and opinions are my own and I was not told what to write.
