Our Rusty Rivets Twitter Party

You must have read our post about the Rusty Rivets Party? We had a fab time and if you joined us on twitter I hope you won a prize.

Here’s the fun we had at ours.

4 guests had been invited  to our party and they were quite excited to see the new Rusty Rivets show as well as come for a party.

We had been provided with activities as well as goody bags for everyone too.

We had a treasure hunt,



built a robot

coloured in and worked on activity sheets,


built towers –


And of course, went home with some great goody bags.

Yes, we also caught the Rusty Rivets Show on telly.

Celebrating World Poetry Day with Viking

If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know I love and write poetry. Some of it I share with you and some are written for my eyes only.

I was invited to take part in a campaign by Viking for World Poetry Day – which is today by the way. I was sent a lovely creative package to inspire me which included a gorgeous calligraphy feather pen. It was a delight to use the age old method of dipping the pen in ink and writing.  I think I got a little carried away.

But, the main idea of the campaign was for me to write a poem. So here goes –

I’d Love To Be A Poet

I’d love to be a poet…

And write my thoughts in verse.

Things I see and things I love

And even things I curse!

Poems of love and laughter,

Of luck and of success,

Poems of joy and pleasure,

Of smiles and happiness.

Poems about the river,

Or maybe the babbling brook.

Of clouds on high that seem most nigh,

And eagles and geese and rooks.

Poems of sorrow and sadness

Where I can vent my plight –

Of loneliness and heartache

Of darkness in the night.

I’d love to write great poetry

Of love and Halcyon days,

That bring comfort and contentment

In each and every way.

I hope I’ll be a poet

And live my days carefree

And write of things within my life

That mean the most to me.

Introducing Cadbury Oreo Mint and Peanut Butter Flavours

A sweet update for my readers –

If you love chocolate and love Oreo (and lets face it, who doesn’t?), I bring you good news as there are two new flavours being introduced by Cadbury.

Following in the footsteps of the original Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo bar, which took the treat world by storm, Cadbury has now partnered with the cookie maker once again to bring joy to chocolate lovers, by adding two new flavour options. 

Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo Peanut Butter flavour will please those who can’t get enough of the trend for peanut-inspired creations, while devotees of classic chocolate combinations will appreciate the simple delicious taste of Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo Mint flavour. 

In both new bars, as in the classic Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo, smooth and creamy Cadbury Dairy Milk covers a tasty flavoured cream filling, with added generous chunks of Oreo cookie. 

Whether to share with friends or enjoy after a long day at work, if you’re already a fan of Cadbury Dairy Milk this latest collaboration is sure to tantalise your taste buds. 

Joanna Dias, Brand Manager at Mondelēz International, said: “We are delighted to add these two sumptuous new flavours to the classic Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo, giving chocolate lovers even more ways to enjoy their favourite treat. Tasty and irresistible, the peanut butter variant will appeal to those who love the current peanut butter trend, whilst the delicious mint flavour will no doubt delight those who love a classic combination.”

Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo Peanut Butter and Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo Mint will be available from March 2017 in 120g bars, for a RRP of £1.49 at most major supermarkets.

We’ve had an opportunity to sample them and we enjoyed the taste. We did like the Mint more than the Peanut Butter but both went down well.
