These are ideas using everyday objects and skills and don’t have to cost the earth. Paddington Bear Paddington has always been a big deal and I can see why but Christmas 2017 made a revival for the well-loved bear with new books, Christmas adverts… View Post

January 2018 – What We Watched This Month

January said to be the longest month and one of the most miserable. Not to me, January is the time your favourite shows come back from winter break and you can see the launch of new shows. It can be a very exciting time for TV binging and I am here to tell you what we watched this month – January 2018! The Adults Black Mirror Season 1-4 Black Mirror has been an eye opener and fascinating watch. It was all quite realistic but with a futuristic twist, making it quite scary thinking it was all possible. We enjoyed every episode of every season of this show. It was all fantastic writing, great acting and I don’t feel like there… View Post

Heelys Fresh X2 Review + Win A Pair Of Heelys Fresh X2 Thanks To Skates.co.uk

Heelys aren’t a new brand by any means. They’ve been around since I was a child. However, when Skates.co.uk encouraged us to check out the new range of Heelys Fresh I was impressed to see how far the brand and the skating shoes had come. Heelys fresh can be worn as plain shoes or the Heely / skate shoes. In this case, Frankie really wanted them to be in skate shoe form so we went ahead and added the wheels straight away. The wheels come separate from the shoe, however, adding and removing them as you require couldn’t be any easier. Once we added the wheels and laced up the shoes we were ready to go! It’s worth noting that you… View Post

10 Books To Read On World Book Day

Every year World Book Day becomes a bigger, and bigger event. Sure, it’s something that’s ‘a bit of a pain’ when it comes to finding an outfit, a theme etc. However, in a world where technology is at our fingertips reading a physical book is something that should really be celebrated. To celebrate World Book Day we’ve put together a list of 10 books to read on World Book Day. Of course, you don’t have to read all ten of these – just one (or making a start on one) will do.

Getting Organised This Spring Time With Tufferman

It’s that time of year… Christmas is over and done with and our attention moves to spring cleaning and decluttering. It can easily be so overwhelming though, in fact after Christmas we seem to have more stuff than ever before. Nothing in its right place, here at The Harrison Household it’s generally just chaos! So when the guys at Tufferman got in touch to ask us whether or not we’d like to check out some of their storage and organisation solutions we knew it’s something we had to cover. Afterall, we can’t be the only ones sat in a house of chaos right now – can we? We decided to try out two very different products that we want to… View Post

Dealing With Blue Monday – The Most Miserable Day Of The Year

The third Monday of January is commonly known as Blue Monday, the most depressing day of the year. A day in which are all feeling our most sorrowful and gloomy in accordance to Psychologist Dr Cliff Arnall. To be honest I find the vast majority of January to be rather blue. The flickering lights of Christmas have disappeared. We’re all trying to stick to New Year’s resolutions that the majority of us hate. The nights are dark. The mornings are dark. We’re broke. Need I go on? Anyway, for that very reason, I’ve put together a list of quick pick me ups. These will hopefully turn Blue Monday into the feeling of a Sunny Saturday (see what I did there?) Schedule… View Post

Disney Tsum Tsum Series 4 Stack’em Review

We’re no newcomer to Disney Tsum Tsums. In fact, on The Harrison Household we’ve previously featured the Disney Tsum Tsum squishie’s as well as the Disney Tsum Tsum Stack’em display stands. However, we’ve finally managed to get our hands on two packs of series 4 Disney Tsum Tsum Stack’ems. We therefore figured we’d do a mini review.

In this case, there’s 2 mystery figures, one large and one tiny. You can also purchase Disney Tsum Tsum Stack em’s Series 4 in single packs (blind bags) and packs of… View Post

I tried to make all the goals SMART; Specific Measurable Achievable Relevant Timely I struggled to apply ‘SMART’ to one particular action. Entering competitions. Instead, we’ve sat down as a family and discussed what we’d really like to win this year from competitions. Entering competitions at The Harrison Household is nothing new.
