Review - Yollies



A long time ago .... way back in ...... August..... the lovely people who make Cheesestrings(Kerry Dairies)  produced a yummy new after dinner snack - a yogurt lolly on a stick - a Yollies.

We couldn't wait to try these, unfortunately they are only available in large Asda stores at the moment (other retailers will be stocking them later in the year) in the chiller aisle, tho I am told they also taste great frozen in the warmer summer months..

Revamp your fridge with PicStick

Every time I look at my fridge I am reminded of the baby dinosaur from 'Dinosaurs' back in the early 90's.  He drew a picture and handed it to Frank who exclaimed "where will I put it?  the fridge is full".... Baby's reply "Buy a new fridge..... problem solved".........

............ whilst PicStick's can't solve the space issue (or maybe they can... I'll come to that in a minute) they can certainly make a boring white fridge prettier.

Photo Magnets themselves are not a new concept to me, a few years ago I made my own, that is to say I found some pictures I liked, printed them, laminated and stuck some magnetic tape on the back.  It is fair to say these were massively overdue for an update as my kids are no longer babies.  So when PicStick offered me the chance to explore their website and order some Photo Magnets I jumped at the chance..... and it is safe to say I'll be heading back.

Meredith Brooks - Bitch (as you can guess contains bad words)

In the days of PC gone mad and people overreacting to things I was shocked to hear Asda playing one of my favourite songs this week... in fact I moseyed around the clothing/ entertainment department far longer then I anticipated just to hear all of it.

I kind of see this song as a theme tune to my life ... I am all these things and you know what ... if you don't like it I don't care, I DO have a softer side but only if you deserve to see it :)

Released in May 1997 I was still at school (albeit high school) and to say the word 'bitch' even in context/ a song was really frowned about in my house.  However it is one of my go-to feel good songs for an anger release.

Turtle Power.... cupcakes

As you may have seen on Twitter it's all about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in this house at the moment.  Just when I've learnt all the superhero's from A-Z (honestly would you like me to list them) Ben announces he wants a TMNT birthday party.   Well his birthday isn't until the middle of October but when we went to B&M the other day he found a turtle bun mix and it sat in the cupboard forgotten about until this weekend.

He loved the fact the cake's were soo easy to make, and I loved not having to measure out all the ingredients.
