This week we were sent some Easter Eggs from Thorntons. A treat. It also helped me out greatly because I hadn't got round to buying any for the children yet!

I currently have a Samsung Galaxy S2, which I have had for just over two years. I love it but it simply doesn't love me in the same way. Unrequited love is always a sad tale. Although sometimes it does have a happy ending (my husband and I have been together 14 years this month, in spite of my initial 17 year old unrequited love)! It's safe to say that my phone hasn't served me well over the past two years.

Last weekend we went on a rather bracing walk around Embsay Reservoir, owned by Yorkshire Water. It was overcast but wasn't raining, and we knew that the walk was around a mile long, so wouldn't be too taxing on little legs. It is free to park and free to walk around the reservoir, making it a nice and cheap family trip. The reservoir was easy to find and there was decent parking. I imagine that this might be more of an issue in the summer when more people are embarking on the walk.

I was worried about this week. The childminder was away and I was concerned about surviving a whole week with my children. Desperately hoping that they would get along. They have a tendency to spend the first week of a holiday winding each other up. However, they were fantastic. They actually played together, which never usually happens. It's safe to say that only one day was really hard work and that was just because I wasn't feeling so great, nothing to do with the kids.
We have been swimming, visited a farm, played at soft play, gone to the theatre, been to the library, gone to my Grandma's, baked, entered and won shows and visited Harewood House. Quite a lot to pack into five days!
Without further ado, here is what has made me happy this week...

My husband and I have recently been reviewing Durex RealFeel Condoms. It's a tough life! Initially I was sceptical about the condoms, because I have never found them to feel very lifelike before. Durex say about the condoms "Real Feel condoms are made from non-latex polyisoprene. This synthetic material has more elasticity than natural rubber latex, which gives a great fit. Polyisoprene is also a softer material than natural rubber latex, making them more comfortable, so it’s almost like not wearing a condom at all. So you’ll experience a natural amazing sensation."

We were recently sent the Hot Wheels 4-Lane Tower Track Set and the Hot Wheels Deluxe Stunt Crash Ramp to try. My son has previously reviewed the 10-in-1 Super Track Set, so we were excited to see how well these new sets went along with the other set we received. Both the boy and the girl really enjoy playing with HotWheels. I think it's a shame that often their marketing is aimed purely at boys, my daughter probably spent more time playing with it than my son.

This week we were sent a CD to review. It's by Go!Go!Go! who are a musical group who feature on Nick Jr in the mornings. We don't have Nick Jr, so hadn't heard of them before. However, the album, Radio Go!Go!Go! is really catchy and full of songs which young children love to dance along to. The album was released today, and can be bought from Amazon for £7.00.
I like that the album features three video tracks and also some sing-a-long Karaoke. This is a really catchy album, and I didn't expect to say that! Both children adore singing along in the car and we have had fun watching the DVD which comes with the album. I thought the dance tutorials were a great addition and get the family up and about making fools of themselves together!
