29. Favourite TV Twist



There have been a few big twists in The Originals recently but my favourite has to be Cammy becoming a vampire. And not a nice one at that!

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 28

28. Best New Show

 A follow on from the film "Limitless", the tv show is captivating!
It is only on it's first season and I already love it!

Helped by the fact that I loved the film, this is a man given the ability to use ALL of his brain and how he helps the FBI.
It's not just another crime drama!

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 25

25. A Show You Plan On Watching



Not every bodies cup of tea but I am planning on watching the new season of OBEM. Also, I may have to rewatch all of the older seasons.

Nothing like watching the emotions of a labour bring joy and terror into a pregnant lady (me)!

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 24

24. Scariest TV Show



Silly as this may seem to some of you, The Walking Dead is one of the scariest shows I've seen... I don't do zombies, or guns, or zombies running after you trying to kill you.

Not my idea of a light hearted TV series!

23. Favourite TV Romance


Although this relationship is now on hold, Damon and Elena from the Vampire Diaries shows love!
That and Damon is just gorgeous!

Anyone else agree?

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 22

22. Best Kid's Show (In School)


I loved My Parents Are Aliens!

It never failed to make me laugh and the concept of it is one that I still find funny as an adult.

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 21

21. Best Kid's Show (Pre- School)



There were many choices I could have chosen for this answer, Barney, Brum, Tots TV, Postman Pat or Thomas the Tank just to name a few but I had to go with Tots TV!

I always loved the Donkey and that little mischievous Dog!

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 20

20. Favourite Period Show



Set before the times of King Arthur, Merlin is probably one of my favourite period shows.
Although still a Fantasy, it is an amazing adventure show and gets you really engaged in it.

Unfortunately, this stopped airing in 2011 but it has 5 seasons if anyone wants to get caught up!

33 Week Hospital Stay

So it's been quite eventful!

This baby looks as though she wants to make an early appearance!
After spending the last 3 days in hospital with plenty of blood tests, monitoring, contractions, swabs and steroid injections, I am extremely relieved to get out of the hospital and back home to my 2 little monsters! Even if that means I'm on bed rest!


All of this started from a doctors appointment when I got asked whether I had been getting headaches along with my dizziness spells. I got told to go to the MAU. 

Once I got there, I was asked about all symptoms I'd had as they were suspecting pre eclampsia. Once they ruled this out, swabs were done because I had started lightly spotting blood. The results for this showed traces of a hormone released in preterm labour! 

That was me admitted to the labour ward! 

I was given steroid injections to strengthen baby's lungs incase she decided to make her appearance while I was there and hooked up to constant monitors to make sure baby kept moving. While on the monitors, it showed I was having regular contractions. Three to four contractions every 10 minutes, lasting 30 seconds a piece. 
Convinced this baby was going to make an appearance 7 weeks early, they did an internal to check my cervix and dilation. It wasn't happening. 

So after all of this, I am happy to say that I am out of hospital with baby still cooking! 
Let's just hope she stays there a bit longer!


30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 19

19. Best TV Show Cast



I'll just leave this here.

Don't argue with me!

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 18

18. Favourite Cartoon



I've tried to keep my answers spread between adult, family and child so I thought I would choose my favourite cartoon to be an adult comedy cartoon.

And who doesn't love Roger with all his costumes!

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 17

17. Favourite Mini Series


"Exonerated after spending nearly two decades in prison for a crime he did not commit, Steven Avery filed suit against Manitowoc County, Wis., and several individuals involved with his arrest. Shortly after, however, Avery found himself behind bars again, this time accused of the murder of 25-year-old photographer Teresa Halbach. She was last seen on Avery's property, where she was to photograph a vehicle. Avery and nephew Brendan Dassey were tried and (spoiler alert) convicted of the crime. But that's not the end of the story. When Columbia graduate students Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos read about Avery, they felt his story would make an interesting documentary. Neither PBS nor HBO were interested, but Netflix took on their concept to produce the 10-episode docuseries, which generated plenty of publicity and prompted petitions to have Avery's case reviewed, though officials in Wisconsin insist all the evidence is not presented in the program."

14. Favourite Male Character


Leonard Hofstadter, The Big Bang Theory

As much as it is a character, I respect how much patience he has with Sheldon.
I also like the awkwardness about him.

Review: Nimble Babies Milk Buster Baby Bottle Wash

Nimble Babies Milk Buster Baby Bottle Wash



I've never really thought about using something other than washing up liquid for washing bottles before, didn't enter my head there might be something else on the market. When I heard about Nimble Babies, it really peaked my interest and I wanted to know more!
It claims that all you need to do is add water, spray twice (or a little more if milk has been left overnight), brush and rinse and that will be more effective than cleaning with washing up liquid. It claims that it breaks down the milk protein and will leave the bottle smelling fresher.

Well, all I've got to say is IT DOES!
It definitely does what it says on the bottle and I couldn't be happier with the product.
We've been using the same bottles for 9 months and they had started going a little cloudy with use and the build up of the milk protein. After the first wash with Nimble Babies Bottle Wash they're already a lot clearer and I'm excited to see if I can get them back to more of a transparent colour.

Just for the sake of testing, I also left a bottle overnight with 1oz left in the bottom of the bottle. I followed the instructions on slightly more soiled bottles and added a little more than 2 sprays and I am extremely impressed with the results of that! It worked just as effective as when I was cleaning soon after use.
I also used the spray on the teats and I couldn't complain about the results!

The design of the bottle is amazing! It looks extremely smart and it's such a practical design. The spray on the top is perfect for spraying into smaller nooks and crannies such as the teat and the lid screw (that the teat fits into).

I can see the bottle lasting well over 2 months so it works out brilliant value for money.

Overall, I can not find a single fault with this product an would recommend it to anyone who is looking for something to clean their bottles with and help them smell a bit fresher!

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 13

13. Best Local Show (For Local People)





A comedy centered on a loud-mouthed Irish matriarch whose favorite pastime is meddling in the lives of her six children.

Laugh out loud funny but not one for the light hearted and not one for the family!

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 12

12. An Episode You've Watched More Than 10 Times





"Like my loafers? Former gophers - 
It was that or skin my chauffeurs" 

I don't agree with animal cruelty but this song is quite catchy!

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 11

11. A Show That Disappointed You



I hate to say this but I'm pretty disappointed with the current season of Dr Who.
Not the Dr himself but some of the storylines could have been a bit better.
They've missed some brilliant opportunities!

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 10

10. A Show You Thought You Wouldn't Like - But Ended Up Loving



I'm not usually one for crime shows but I did take a liking to Bones.

It's not all about the crime scene but the science behind the murders.
And it has a pretty cute love story or two!

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 8

A week down, another 3 and a bit to go!
Hopefully you're not already bored of me!

If you're only just seeing this, I am doing the 30 days of TV challenge in which I answer a different question each day about my TV preferences. Shows I wished were still on, my favourite shows and now a show I feel everyone should watch.
Have a look back at my previous 7 days to see what I've written.

8. A Show Everyone Should Watch



Although it does contain some bits that may not be suitable for younger viewers (alcohol, stealing... well anything bender does...) Futurama is one that is fun to watch and light hearted.

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 7

7. The Last Show You Watched



What can I say?

I have a three year old and a 9 month old.

I have to recommend watching the films! They are AMAZING!

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 6

6. Favourite Documentary



Wonders of the Universe with Brian Cox.

We've all heard about The Big Bang but this documentary not only explains the story of the universe but the story of us.

Ever wondered who we are and where we come from?

This is the one for you!

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 5

5. Best Book to TV Adaptation



I may come under fire here but, Game of Thrones!

Based on the books by George R. R. Martin, this has been awarded the title of Greatest Fantasy Epic of the Modern Age.

And who am I to disagree?

If you haven't watched it, it's one for the list!

Day 4 of the 30 day challenge!
Hope you're not getting bored of me already!


4. Your Favourite Show Ever!




The Simpsons has been around as long as I can remember and just keeps getting better!
I love the fact that they are recognizable world wide and love by many!

A childhood favourite, a teenage favourite and a family favourite!

What's not to love?!

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 3

Day 3 of the 30 days of TV challenge.

3. A Show You Own On DVD



Who doesn't like a show about Superman? 
Even more so, Superman in his youth and a look into his younger life?

A bit of a guilty pleasure but I will happily admit that I own all 10 seasons of Smallville and have watched them a few times!

And Clark played by Tom Welling? Well... I could watch this for hours!

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 2

Following on from yesterdays theme, day 2 of the 30 days of TV challenge.


2. A Show That Needs More Viewers



"Set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, when a spaceship housing humanity's lone survivors sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet." 

Currently on season 4, The 100 is aired on Channel 4 (UK). After mentioning this season to quite a few friends, none of which had heard of it, I decided that this is the series I think people should watch more! 

With an interesting plot line and lots of spanners in the works, it is a show that keeps you on your toes!

Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a new show to watch! And better yet, 4 seasons out already means you can mass watch it to get up to date!

30 Days of TV Challenge - Day 1

With it being the 1st of May, I thought I would start the 30 days of TV challenge.

I will be posting a short post every day this month (except the 31st) answering the challenge questions in order.

1. A Show That Should Have Never Been Cancelled...



Ever thought about test tube babies?
Well this was a Sci- Fi/ Drama/ Mystery that went along that theme.

They only lasted 3 seasons between 2006- 2009 but that was enough that it got me hooked!
Unfortunately, after the popularity plummeted, they cancelled mid season and it seized to exist.

Like seriously, why would you cancel mid season? Thats just mean!

I would definitely say that even though it wasn't on very long the 60 or so episodes it was on were pretty cool!
