Show Dogs Movie Review

At the weekend Miss Tilly and I were invited to the special preview of Show Dogs in London. The previews are always special because we have little extras to look forward to. This time was even more special because Tilly is such an animal lover and there were dogs there for her to stroke and have her photo's taken with.

Bullying In The Workplace

Bullying doesn't just happen to kids in school, it happens to adults in the grown-up world too! When I was working for Curry's when the older kids were little there was a really horrible bloke who would bully me and make me feel inadequate at my job. When things didn't go his way, he would try to get me into trouble. It made matters worse that he was also a deputy manager, so it seemed like I was going to lose, whatever I did or said. We would get extra commision if we pushed the warranties on top of the purchases and we would also get more money if we pushed the credit facilities on to customers too. I hated this part of the job anyway, but it also made the place a very competitive place to work and if you secured a sale, turned your back and the deputy manager would finish the sale off and take the commision as his own.

How Can I Cope With Depression Without Medication?

As many of you all know, I suffer from mental health problems but I choose to be unmedicated with it. I feel that you cannot learn to live with a potentially lifelong illness if you are doped up with medication all the time. Mental health is still such a taboo subject to talk about and its often difficult to find the courage to ask for help, but you are by no means a failure if you do need help. Asking for help in times of needs is often a sign of strength and you will find that you are more courageous than you give yourself credit for.

Although I suffer from cyclothymia (a mild form of bipolar)and anxiety, mental health problems come in all shapes and sizes, if you have a few of these symptoms, then following some tips in this blog post can help you get back to feeling better.

Cobra Paw Board Game Review

Arte you looking for a game for the kids to play together? One that is going to get them working and thinking fast? You need to play Cobra Paw, where you have to work as fast as a ninja in order to win the game. We were sent this game as being part of Asmodee UK Blogger Board Game Club, but all opinions are my own

The Cobra Paw game is so easy to play so its ideal for all of the family. The game is ideal for kids aged 6 and above but I think if your child is quick thinking and you give a little bit of extra help, then you can play with younger children because it will be good for them to match the planks with the patterns on the dice.

Five Health Problems We Develop As We Get Older

Recently I had a mental health check-up at the surgery. I also had the normal checks done, like blood pressure, weight, alcohol checks etc and asked to book some blood tests for cholesterol and anaemia. I actually hadn't been to the doctors for about 18 months because I like to treat myself rather than waste the NHS resources for a cold or sickness bug. But not wanting to go to the doctors is also not a good thing, because quite often there are times that we need to see a doctor but we are quite embarrassed with the changes we have during middle age. Urgh! Middle age - however, did I get there?

Air Hogs Sonic Rocket Review

We are fans of Air Hogs in this house, Tilly has a drone and loves playing with it. In the past we were sent an Air Hogs Rocket to review on the blog and Tilly also enjoyed playing with this too.

The Air Hogs Rocket is a polystyrene rocket, that is so light, it feels like you are carrying nothing. You charge it up with the USB cable that is included, this is because of obvious reasons that batteries will be too heavy for the rocket to take off. When it is charged you have enough charge for 50 take offs, so it will have a few hours of fun before you have to charge it again. The rocket comes with a stand and you place the rocket on the stand, then press the button. Move back from the rocket as we found it has a mind of its own and flew sideways and over the floor before it took off into the sky.
