Marvel Super Hero Mashers Review

by , in
"Yes, I've got Wolverine and Iron Man Mashers!"

Is what I said when my wife came home with them for my son's fifth birthday this week.


We bought these Mashers from Home Bargains, our son had wanted some for over a year now and we found them priced at £7.99 which we thought was very reasonable. These were the two most known superheroes they had in stock so that is what we went for.

How to make Rocky Road - Man Style!

by , in
It's pretty well known in my social circles that I'm a culinary master in the kitchen, so I thought I would share my "Man Style" rocky road recipe with you. I made this to go with the buffet we had for my sons 5th birthday this week. I didn't want to go the normal marshmallows and digestive biscuit route so I took it a step further.




Here are some quotes from my friends who tasted it:

"That was amaaazing!"
"oh that was so good thank you"
"That was f***ing brilliant!"

57 days of blogging - What I have learnt so far

by , in
3354!!!!! That's how many page views I have had in 57 days of blogging. Now I'm not sure how many most people get but I'm very pleased with that.


I started my first blog post on 2nd July. I originally started it on Wordpress after reading several reviews online about what site is the best. There was so much information and it was all a bit daunting. I had wanted to do a blog since before Xmas 2015. I went with Wordpress and was surprised at how easy it was to set up. I then started reading more about layouts, what to write, what widgets to use etc and I had a pretty nice looking blog (after changing the look 3 times in the first 24 hours.

How to live with chronic back pain

by , in
Do you have chronic back pain?



I have to live with pain every day as do 20% of people. I have disc degeneration in my L3 and L4 vertebrae. I will share my journey with you on this and then how I felt and how I dealt with those feelings. Hopefully, I can help some of you who have to deal with this on a daily basis.


I often had several thoughts that made me feel worse:

What a rubbish Dad I'm going to be!
Why doesn't anyone seem to take me seriously?
Am I going to be in a wheelchair in the future?
If I am, will my wife still want to be with me?
I wouldn't blame her if she did?
I feel like I'm letting everyone down!
It would be better if I was dead!

All these thoughts went through my mind on several occasions, some of them I realise now were brought on by the medication I was taking. Below is the story of my pain and how I am today:

Alice's Adventures! 4 - Pizza Hut for tea

by , in
Hey Peeps

I've been to somewhere called Pizza Hut tonight for tea, well I say I have, I had a tiny bit of chicken and a smidge of ice cream, this is becoming a trend now when we go out for meals!
I fell asleep in the car on the way there. When we got there I was woken up by the wind. I opened my eyes to see my dad's face about 3 inches away from mine as he was undoing my seat belt, not a pretty sight, sorry dad, only joking you're real cute. Not as cute as me, but hey no one is!

My Bucket List

A slightly grim topic but I think if I write them down then maybe I will have a better chance to achieve what I want to achieve before my inevitable demise.

Get off your phone and see what's in front of you

by , in
I could've run over three people today! Good job I was paying attention.


The reason I could've run them over is because they were walking on the path up to a junction and started to cross the road without even looking! I see this day in day out. Yet if I did run them over, I'd have a lawsuit on my hands and some serious issues with the feds to deal with.

Tips for booking a Disney World holiday

by , in


So you've booked your Disney World holiday?

Congratulations you won't regret it! As I've mentioned in my previous post on Disney World I have been three times. Each time it seems to get better and better and I come home wishing I had enough money to live in Florida, spend each day going to Disney World and Universal Studios, and buying all the different flavours of Oreos at Wal-Mart, obviously. My wife Kerry loves Disney and absolutely loves Florida and Disney World. If she had her way we would go every year. I just don't shit out money yet.

Disney Cruise - It's a must!

by , in

In 2008 and 2010 we booked a 3 day trip on the Disney Cruise. This 3-day cruise set sail from Port Canaveral in Florida to Nassau in the Bahamas. We stayed in the Bahamas for a day then back to the ship on the evening to make our way to Disney's very own private island, Castaway Cay. The two below photos are what we saw when we woke up after the first night sailing. This was docking in Nassau, Bahamas.

The Father, the son and the holy garden!


"Dad!"

"Yeah?"

"Why did the angry bird cross the road?"

"Not sure son, why?"

"Because he wanted to!"

Alice's Adventures! - A trip to the hospital!

by , in
Hey peeps.

Its me again, Alice.


I'm not very well at the minute, in fact I've been to the hospital today :-(
Apparently I've got tonsillitis, my temperature reached 41 degrees today when i was at the doctors so i had to be taken to hospital so they could check me out. My doctor said there was nothing wrong with me, he's definitely earning his money. Loser. I did get to ride in an ambulance though, yayy!! No sirens though, booo.
