Playtime With The Stickle Bricks Fun Tub and More

When we were kids Stickle Bricks were a big thing. We played at home making rockets, planes and houses from the multi coloured bricks. I even have a distant memory of playing with them at primary school. Now they are back bigger than ever for the next generation to play with. Playtime with the Stickle Bricks Fun Tub has been big in our house this past week.

My daughter honestly thought it was Christmas when they arrived. I wish I caught her reaction on camera. Opening the Stickle Bricks Fun Tub was very exciting. We also received the Stickle Bricks Fire Engine and the Stickle Bricks Little Builder to have a look over.

#BlogOnToys Introduce Yourself – This Is Me

I’m really excited to be able to attend #BlogOnToys on the 16th in Manchester. It’s my first blog conference and the chance to meet other like-minded people who are into their blogging as much as I am. It will be fantastic to meet everyone face to face.

Here is my entry to introduce myself. I’m quite shy so please come over and say hello. I’m bringing the baby with me so I’m sure she will be a good conversation starter!

This Is Me….

BlogOnToys Introduce Yourself - This Is Me

  • What is the best thing about blogging?

The best thing about blogging, well for me it gives the freedom of working from home with my baby and toddler in tow! We have had opportunities that we could not have afforded ourselves. The best online friends who are just as forgetful and nutty as me!

Being a part of a blog community who look out for one another. We may not have met face to face but we care for one another and always help each other. The BlogOn community helped me out back in April when I lost my dad 3 days before I had to go in for my planned c-section. It was the toughest time of my life and to receive a care package of baby essentials to my door was the most wonderful thoughtful thing that could have happened to me at a really difficult time.

I’m very excited to attend #BlogOnToys and give a little back to the community fund.
