Cardboad Dream House Competition - Ocean Finance

Josh and Kate love playing house, making tents and building all sorts of constructions out of Lego, cardboard boxes, blankets, anything they can get there hands on.

Ocean Finance offered us a cardboard playhouse as part of a competition and I had to say yes as I knew Josh and Kate would love it.

It arrived and Josh was besides himself with excitement. We've just moved house so unfortunately there was too much to do before we could get started on it. Finally the day came.

After constructing the house we asked Josh what we should do to decorate it. He said he wanted it red(his favourite colour)  with a black roof . I wasn't brave enough to let him lose with a paintbrush in the house and the weather wasn't good enough to do it outside so we opted for red paper bricks.

After completing all the brick work and the roof he started talking about Christmas and decided he wanted it to be a Christmas house. So we sent Daddy up to the loft to get some Christmas decorations. A few hours later we had this:

Debenhams Back-To-School Competition

I was reading the blog of The Ramblings of a formely Rock N roll Mum and saw that she was hosting a really fun competition on behalf of Debenhams.

Here is my entry:

A old photo of my brother and I, we decided to swap school uniforms. With him being 2 years younger than me his was quite a squeeze! This photo always me smile when I come across it.

I've had a look through the Debenhams site and didn't manage to come across any items in the summer uniform(probably as we went to school in South Africa and the climate is so different), so had to opt for our winter uniform.

Girls wore skirts very similar to these:

With a white blouse
 A grey jumper(ours had red and green stripes on the cuffs)

Teamed up with a red and green striped tie, long grey socks with red and green stripes

and shoes smiliar to these:

 The boys wore the same jumper, tie and socks, but paired with trousers like these:

I have tried asking my son what he thinks about the photo but I just get silly giggles, he thinks the photo is hilarious!
