A Poem for Bedtime

I've just read an article about a new book that is coming out in October 2011. It's based around the importance of bedtime routine and how sometimes we all get a little frustrated.

Every parent knows that a good bedtime routine is central to a happy household. It helps children feel calm and secure and allows parents to spend quiet, quality time with their little darlings. However, if you are struggling a little with achieving the perfect bedtime routine for you and your little darlings perhaps this book is for you.

Here's a little excerpt of one of the bedtime poems:

The cats nestle close to their kittens now.
The lambs have laid down with the sheep.
You're cozy and warm in your bed, my dear
Please go the fuck to sleep.



The book by Adam Mansbach is available on pre-order from Amazon and is endearing entitled: Go the F@#k to Sleep .

Jayne From Mum the Word's Wedding Day Listography

Well who could have known what a can of worms I've opened with this weeks Wedding Day Listography? I hope making you live through those dark wedding day moments hasn't scarred you for life and sent you running for the hills from future lists.


Anyway - one such case has been sent to me from Jayne at Mums the Word, who for family reasons couldn't put her post on her own blog (ie her Mum reads it). So here it is - if you have comments leave them here and not on Jayne's blog. You can also message her on Twitter on @.



In honour of the Royal Wedding, this weeks’ Listography theme is Top 5 Things I'd Change About My Wedding Day. I have plenty to fill that list, so much so in fact, that I’ve chosen not to post it on my own blog but here on Kate’s, to prevent the dredging up of old resentments with my family, who I still don’t think have truly forgiven me for eloping. So here goes.

My Families Reaction
When I told my family I was getting married, their reaction was not what I had hoped for. Yes, we’d only been together six weeks when we got engaged, and yes, we knew it was fast. But I’m not an idiot, I’m not impetuous and Husband is NOT a control freak, or trying to trap me into a life of servitude or degradation...regardless of what my Mum thought at the time. They spent weeks trying to convince me that Hubs had some evil plan and that I should reconsider. They voiced their opinions; I ignored them, which pissed them off even more.

My Sisters’ Demands
When we started to make tentative plans for the wedding, I asked my then-13 year old sister to be my bridesmaid. She said yes and all was well, until we started talking about dresses. I had chosen a simple pink lace prom-style dress for myself, and wanted something equally simple for my sister. But, no. She kicked up a fuss and said that no dresses that I could choose would suit her. She suggested that she wore a white tuxedo, top hat and a pair of Converse Allstars. I said no, she sulked, she told me that she’d only be my bridesmaid is she could choose her own outfit. I said absolutely not, as I didn’t want a fucking carnival walking down the aisle behind me, so she said she wouldn’t be my bridesmaid then. She broke my heart that day.

My Families Demands
When I told my family that the only people who were to be invited would be parents, grandparents, siblings and a handful of friends, we started getting demands of “so, what about So and So..” to which we’d have to constantly reiterate, no, we’re having a SMALL and intimate wedding. (If I’m honest the thought of walking down a long aisle with hundreds of people looking at me turns my stomach.)The final straw was when my family started to force the issue over one particular family member, who for serious reasons that I won’t go into here, I categorically did not want at my wedding, and I also didn’t want to go into why I didn’t want them their either. But the issue got forced, I was made to tell people things that I never wanted to tell anyone, and certain relationships were tainted forever.

Shopping
This may seem like a weird one, but most women who are getting married look forward to the shopping trips for dresses and shoes and all of the other fun things. I bought my wedding dress after Husband spotted it in the window of Dorothy Perkins and insisted that I try it on. As it turned out, the dress couldn’t have been more perfect, but I still didn’t do all of the shopping with my Mum and Sister that most brides-to-be get to do, which is mainly due to their earlier attitudes. And to this day, I still get it thrown in my face that I didn’t ask my Mum to go shopping with me. Would you have asked someone who was so opposed to your wedding to help you buy a dress?!

The Reaction When We Told Them We Were Eloping
After months of stress and pressure, we were offered some cash to go abroad, and we grabbed it with both hands. When Hubs’ family found out, naturally they were sad that they wouldn’t be there, but they understood that it was what we wanted and gave us their blessing. My family took it as a personal insult and I still don’t think I’ve been forgiven for what they see as the ultimate exclusion.

I feel I should add, as a side note, that my actual wedding day was as close to perfect as it could possibly be. I married the love of my life on a tropical beach with white sand beneath our feet and an azure sea providing the gentle lapping soundtrack to the day. We dined on lobster and champagne under the stars and started our married life in total bliss. I wouldn’t change ANYTHING about the actual wedding, and am glad we have the memories to share with our children and grandchildren. I just wish that the preparations had been slightly different. Okay, very different.

A Friend in Need...(is a pain in the arse)

The lovely JoJo at JoJo's So Called Life has asked me to write a post about a good friend for her new JoJo's So Called Friends Linky.

Believe it or not I do actually have one or two friends. They don't even complain when I'm late with their 'friendship payments'. Pretty good pals I'm sure you'd agree.

There is one particular friend who sprang immediately to mind for this though. Last time I saw him he was complaining about not having a post dedicated to him on my blog...

So - Mr. Eric Hamilton - your moment has come. Step forward into the limelight and bask in the glow of Kate's vast readership.

What do you mean 'who turned out the lights'?



This story begins about 10 years ago when I first returned from travelling the world with my unknown fiance Kristian by my side. We returned from distant shores to have a go at living in Ireland (where I'm from) instead of England (where he's from).

The move back coincided with my mothers 60th birthday bash so there was lots going on and plenty of visitors looking for spare beds at the family home. Fortunately the ever chivalrous Eric offered us his spare room for the weekend. Never mind that he had not yet met 'the fiance'....mi casa es su case as they say round these parts.

So that weekend we moved in.

And a year later we moved out.

Not only did we stay in his spare room all that time, we stayed rent free. And drank his wine. Kristian even started working in the same place as him and so bummed a lift in and out every day. Whilst dictating the musical selection of course.

Eric now lives in Slovakia with his lovely new wife. I have no idea what made him leave these shores.

Strange isn't it...?

If you'd like to share a story about a good friend then pop over to JoJo's.

Listography - My Wedding

So going with the theme of the Royal Wedding this week I thought I would dedicate this week's Listography to the other Kate. Not that I want to hog her limelight or anything - there's plenty of room in this world for the two of us. No, I just thought I'd offer some friendly wedding advice - one Kate to another - based on my own personal experiences.

So this weeks Listography is 'Top 5 Things I'd Change About My Wedding Day'.

Dear Kate,

1. Make sure you try your underwear on with your wedding dress before the morning of your wedding. This will save you from ending up with masking tape holding your boobs in place on your big day.

2. There is no need to run up the aisle. Everyone will still look at you and continue to look at you for the duration of the service so legging it to the top of the church will not result in nobody seeing you. It will just add to the odds of you tripping over.

3. Don't believe your mother that 80 bottles of wine are required for 90 guests. This is not a good ratio and will result in her staggering out the door at the end with an armful of almost full open bottles.

4. When your DJ double books don't listen to your friend who says he has a cousin that will step in for 50 quid. Said cousin will take your carefully compiled list of music requests, then arrive at the reception with a laptop and 'wacky' shirt and instead play the likes of 'Oh Mickey you're so fine'. Twice.

5. Make sure the Best Man rehearses his speech first. It will save you having to tell him to 'wrap it up' whilst your new husband is busy with his shovel digging a hole in the floor to hide in.

And just because it's my list I'm going to add one more -

6. Don't drink too many double whiskeys whilst head banging to Nirvana. You won't make it to the after party and you will be too hungover to move the next day.

So that's it, hope this has been useful to you. Good luck on your big day and watch out for that whiskey.

Love,
       Kate.


I'll hand it over to you guys now. Write your 'Top 5 Things I'd Change About My Wedding Day' post on your own blog with a link back to here and then add your details to the linky below.

Oh and feel free to add any embarrassing photos. I tried but couldn't find any of our wedding day pics at all.

That's bad isn't it...?

Vlog - Time to Make Up

I have no idea why I am showing you this. It serves no purpose other than to satisfy nosey people who like to rifle through their host's bathroom cabinets or pilfer their friend's make-up in the loo of some bar \ restaurant \ nightclub.

That'd be all of you then.

So although this is highly embarrassing I've decided to share it with you in order to suffer for my art.

Go easy on me now!

Zoobles Dee-light Review

Well you all know what a Zooble is right? Another craze that the kids have been trying to get their dirty little mitts on for quite some time. So when we were offered the chance to review a Zooble Dee-light (a light up Zooble) how could I refuse.

The package promptly arrived from Spin Master Toys and was even more promptly torn open :


Please ignore state of playroom...


There was a rather long discussion as to who should own the Zooble. The boy thought it was a boy as it was blue so he should have it, the girl thought it was a girl because it had pink lights so she should have it.



It took the marketing blurb to settle it:


We recently launched this new girls collectable toy range and already it’s building a buzz. 

These special Zoobles light-up in different colours. Curled up in little balls, Zoobles™ come to life when you place them on their “happitat”.  See them spring up and transform into cute, colourful animal characters to play with!  Press their heads and they’ll blink, wink or even wag their tail!  Each Zooble is unique and comes with its very own happitat where it can curl up to go to sleep, or spring to life on the hot spot. 

Each Zooble comes individually packaged and contains a little plastic home or 'happitat' for them to sleep in.



Now I have to say as an adult I thought they were fairly non-eventful - but what do I know? The Girl says she loves 'Sparkle' and when I asked what she loves about it she said it was like having a secret pet. 

So there you go - a thumbs up by daughter and confused face by Mum.

Disclosure: Product was sent free of charge for the purposes of this review.

(Another) 10 things you may not know about me

I've been asked by Gruminator and Grocery Dad to join in with the Kreative Blogger meme that's going around by listing 10 facts about myself.

I think I can do that.

1.  I traveled to Australia on my own when I was 24 and met my husband to be within the first two weeks.

2. I once took my 6 month old baby to a White Stripes gig.

3. Whiskey turns me into an asshole.

4. I worked in Sydney, London and New York fixing in-flight entertainment systems on British Airways planes.

5. When I lived in London Harrods was my corner store.

6. Myself and my husband spent 3 months island hopping in Thailand. On our last stop I was felt up and flashed at by a dirty old man when I was alone in our hut.

7. I've just started doing Yoga and totally love it.

8. When I'm excited I get migraines.

9. I spent 6 months in Mexico doing voluntary work when I left University.

10. My brother is a monk


I'm supposed to tag 10 people but I'm leaving it open to the floor instead. Enjoy!

Listography - Funeral Buckets: A Double Dip

Who hasn't at some stage of their lives imagined their own funeral? Who would be there, who would cry, what they would say....Come on, surely you've done it too...Don't leave me out on a limb on this one ok?

This weeks Listography theme is '5 Things I Hope People Say About Me At My Funeral'. Bit of a mouthful I think you'll agree but tricky to condense into bite-size.

So here goes:

1.  'Wow, I've never seen this church so full.'

2. 'I'm so glad that her blog was made into a movie'

3. 'I still can't believe she ran off with Johnny Depp'

4. 'Do you remember that time she got a speeding ticket in her mobility scooter?'

5.  'Do you think Grandma will leave me her house in the Bahamas?'

Silly I know. Your turn now. Make it as heartfelt or ridiculous as you like. Just write your post on your own blog, put a link back here so everyone can find the other entires and then come back here to enter your details in the linky below.

Now I have a feeling this Listography may go down like a lead balloon so I am offering you a choice this week. If you don't like that one you can write your Top 5 Bucket List , ie - things to do before you kick the bucket.

So are we all happy now? Chop, chop then.

The Gallery - 'Tomorrow'

I saw the prompt for this weeks The Gallery on Twitter last night when 'The Boy and Me' said she was struggling with it.

I know what she meant. 'Tomorrow' I mean what sums that up? In fact I wasn't going to enter a picture this week because I didn't want to just put one up just for the sake of it.

Then my sister sent me this which was taken about 5 minutes ago:



Tomorrow's generation taught by todays Mums! Oh dear.

Drinking and Denial

OK I admit it. My husband and I like the occasional tipple.

In fact I've spoken about our drinking habits before in the national press.

However last weekend DH sank to a new low. Not in the amount he drank or the trouble he got himself into. No, in his ridiculous repudiation of the actual truth.

Let me explain.

It's Friday night. The end of another long week and time for a well deserved drink (that's the usually Friday excuse, Thursday could be 'bad day', Wednesday 'good day', Tuesday 'nice meal' , Monday 'we need to finish off that open bottle on the counter', Sunday 'end of the weekend', Saturday 'it's Saturday').

Anyway, having polished off our bottle of wine I decided to hit the hay and left him cradling his umpteenth glass of vodka and coke in front of some sports related TV programme. It was my turn to do the morning shift next day (I know this because my days are Monday - Sunday inclusive and he does....erm.....hmm, something not quite right here...).

So, when I got up the next morning I noticed a seriously abused bottle of vodka on the counter alongside - a shot glass.  Yes Ladies and Gentlemen my husband was doing vodka shots on Friday night - at home by himself.

Absolute Asshole

Now that's pretty low.

But that's not all.

When he eventually dragged his hungover ass out of bed and stumbled around the house for half an hour I showed him the shot glass.

'Having a little party last night were we?' I asked

He rubbed his head and said in complete seriousness -

'Yeah, I think all those soft drink mixers were giving me a headache'.

Yep that'll be it.

A new low - even for him.

Listography - Laminated List

I don't think there are many people who haven't seen the Friends episode about Ross's laminated list. Basically he's allowed to make one list of five famous women that he would be allowed to have a one night stand with if the unlikely opportunity arose. You can see more here.

Ross takes into account likelihood of bumping into them - but I thought I'd just go for broke.

So here's Kate Takes 5 Top 5 Laminated List Guys (*disappears into dreamworld*):

1. Johnny Depp.
Well who else am I going to have in my top slot? I've mentioned Johnny before in a number of posts (How Johnny Depp Ruined My Night, Listography - Dinner Party Guests, and My Life in Lists) so at the risk of sounding like a stalker I'd just like to say 'I LOVE YOU JOHNNY!!'
Johnny Depp

2. Caleb Followill.
Who? He's the lead singer in Kings of Leon. You don't really need to know anymore, just look at the picture.


Ok that's enough. I saw him first.

3. Brad Pitt.
Preferably in his younger days before Angelina 'do my lips look big in this' Jolie cut his balls off.



4. James Franco.
I have no idea who this is but having stumbled on some of his photos I think I need to remedy that.


James - if you're reading this do get in touch.

5. Emile Hirsch
Having recently watched the brilliant 'Into the Wild' (as prompted to by the fabulous Metal Mummy's Movie Meme), I discovered the beautiful Emile who plays Alexander Supertramp.

Yes, I realise that he's about 12 but what was that rule - 'half you age plus 5'? No still probably wouldn't make it.

Damn.

So now it's your turn to enter fantasy land by writing you own Laminated List on your blog and then coming back here to put your details in the linky below. And don't forget to print it off and give it to your other half, you know, just in case. Though I'd keep it to celebrities rather than the likes of 'Keith from accounts'. I really don't want to be involved in any marital breakdowns.

Looking forward to seeing yours!

Review: Dobble and Jungle Speed Games

Does it ever grate on your nerves when you look around the house and see everyone's face stuck in a different screen. Husband on computer, daughter on DS, boys zoned out in front of the TV and *cough* Mum perhaps *cough* on her laptop?

And nobody talking to each other.... 

Without going all misty-eyed and at the risk of sound like Granny - it's an all too common occurance these days.

So when UK based Esdevium Games asked me if I would like to review two of their new card games I decided that this would be the perfect opportunity to remedy the situation.

The games duly arrived:


DOBBLE

JUNGLE SPEED

And the plan changed.

It had nothing to do with the fact that the instructions looked slightly complicated, and certainly nothing to do with the fact that they arrived on my nephews 8th birthday, ahem, or that I hadn't actually bought him a present yet.

Anyway, completely unrelated to any of the above, I decided for the purpose of the review that my nephew and family would be the perfect candidates to test out the games. Not only are they the right ages - 4, 8 and 10, but they don't have a telly. Yep, you read that right - they're that type of family.

The games went down a storm. They're well made, well thought out and well packaged with a tin to keep all the cards in Dobble in one place, and a cloth bag for all the parts of Jungle Speed. Most important when kids are involved! The 4 year old especially liked Dobble - even though it's targeted at over 6's.


No cheating there Mum!
If you'd like to know more, here's a little bit about how the games work:

Jungle Speed, is for ages 8 and up, it’s a fast paced card matching game with a totem pole that sits in the middle of all the players. Each player must take turns to reveal one of the colourful cards with imaginative symbols on, when two players get a matching symbol, they must race to grab the totem pole. If you are the quicker player you can off load your cards to your slow opponent, when you get rid of all your cards, you are the winner! Sounds easy....but the symbols are very similar and can trick even the sharpest eye, if you make a mistake, you are punished by taking everyone’s cards. Jungle Speed is great fun to play all together as parents can get involved too, there’s also additional cards to add into the pack that temporarily alter the rules just to make it slightly harder!

Dobble, which is for ages 6 and up, is a visual perception card game with 5 different mini-games to be played. The pack of 55 round cards each have 8 colourful cartoons on them, ranging from insects to flowers and symbols. Each card has one picture the same as every other card in the deck, which can be difficult to spot as they’re at different angles and sizes! All 5 mini games are a variation on the basic game play of spotting the matching picture, shout it out loud and grab/get rid of the card while competing to be the fastest player. Dobble comes in a lovely yellow tin which is handy for taking out and about, playing outside on a picnic or on a rainy day inside. Again, adults can enjoy Dobble too as the concept sounds easy, but associating the picture with the right word can be tricky when you’re put up against the clock.


Now - time to schedule your family games night!

Disclosure: Products were sent free of charge for purposes of the review.

Video Review! Hasbro Littlest Pet Shop Hamster Playground

The lovely people at Hasbro have just sent us a Littlest Petshop Hamster Playground to review. My daughter is a huge Littlest Pet Shop fan so I had a feeling this would go well.

(Pity the same can't be said for my editing skills...)



And moving on quickly to the professional in the family:



So it's a thumbs up from her then!

The age group this is targeted at is 4 - 7 year olds. My daughter is 6 and it kept her, as well as her 4 and 2 year old brothers and her 4 year old cousin quiet for an entire afternoon. Now if that's not worth the £14.99* price tag I don't know what is! 



*Based on current Argos price. You can find out more about it here.

Listography - Now That's What I Call Music!

No, this weeks Listography isn't your Top 5 favourite bands or Top 5 albums. It isn't your favourite musical genres or most admired soloists. No, this weeks Listography is confession time.


First 5 albums you ever owned.

Ok, deep breath. Here we go (in chronological order):

1. I'm actually having trouble even typing this. Do I have to? Oh God. OK. Look I was 12 alright?
It was *sigh*  'Spanish Train and other stories' by, gulp, Chris De Burgh. I am actually blushing.
I bought it on a holiday in Bristol visiting older, cooler family friends and somehow thought this action would impress them. Cringe.


Can I come out from under my desk now?


 2. Howard Jones The 12" Album
I had only heard one of his songs but my newly informed 12 year old self could tell already that he was cooler than the rest of my collection (which is detailed in full above). Does it make it any better if I tell you it was on vinyl?
Didn't think so.


3. Now that's what I call Music...8!

8!! They're now up to 78. How old am I? To my credit this was actually a Christmas present from one of my two older brothers. With classic artists like ' Mel and Kim' and 'Nick Berry' what else could I have wanted..? This particular brother wouldn't know a decent band if they shot him with their fenders, unlike my other brother who, the same Christmas bought me.....:


4. Talking Heads, Stop Making Sense
It's a classic album which influenced a huge number of up and coming bands both then and even to this day.

Yep, and guess which one I preferred?

And finally (I thought I'd never get there), my last first 5 is........

5. Kate Bush The Whole Story.

I remember running home from the record shop with this on tape and being accosted by my big sister who seemed very impressed that her extremely uncool little sister had such good taste in music. She nabbed it and shut the bedroom door before I even had a chance to play it, but I remember listening through the door and thinking...'hang on a second, that's not what I wanted'. To my shame (and I have never admitted this publicly) I had got Kate Bush confused with Kim Wilde and was left sitting on the floor outside my sisters bedroom door bitterly disappointed. 

So, now that I have bared my soul and left my reputation in tatters I think it only fair that you do the same. 

Linky up by writing your Listography post on your own site and then coming back and put your details in the link below.

No cheating now, I'm counting on you. Don't make me look like a dickhead.
