In 1931 Thomas Smith Gave Us… Sudocrem

Not many brands have such a rich heritage in both the world and The Harrison Household specifically. However, Sudocrem certainly does! I mean seriously, in the 80’s and 90’s did you even have a first aid cupboard or draw without a tub of Sudocrem in it? Which is why when Sudocrem themselves (well the PR team behind the brand) got in touch and asked if we’d like to review both the Care & Protect and Skin Care Cream we rejoiced. Sudocrem Care & Protect Shortly after celebrating 80 years on the market, Sudocrem launched care & protect. This unique formula of Sudocrem has been designed specifically to help prevent nappy rash. The cream works in three ways; It starts by creating a… View Post

What Happened When My Nephew Realised I’m A Lesbian

If you don’t already know, I have a nephew. He is 5 going on 6, very intelligent young man and very funny. When Frankie was born, I was home every weekend from uni possible to see him, we would spend hours, days together. Growing up I knew everything about him, favourite food, what tv shows he liked, friends he had, future goals. I would snuggle him on the sofa with In The Night Garden to get him to sleep and he would (unfortunately) play with my hair. While we are away for chunks at a time travelling, we make up for it when we are home and spend as much time as possible with the kids. Frankie’s latest trend is… View Post

For Matilda’s second birthday in August, we’ve very kindly been invited by the team at In The Night Garden to experience In The Night Garden Live for the very first time.

The Importance Of Interior Car Care With Armor All

There’s no car fanatics here at The Harrison Household. However, I know it’s important to keep your car clean. So, like many people, I regularly take it to the carwash, especially in the summer! Maybe it’s just me, but when I think of a clean car the first thing I think of is that shiny bonnet, the sparkling alloys, wondering whether your windscreen was always this clear. I don’t think about the interior of the car. However, I really should! Why Interior Car Care Is Important There are some major benefits to keeping the interior of your car clean these include; Preventing Stains & Grime It kind of goes without saying that the longer a stain sticks around the harder it… View Post

February 2018 – What We Watched This Month

While we were away for 2 weeks on the month we still managed to squeeze in some TV time. It was also a shame that quite a few of our regular TV shows were on a break during the Winter Olympics so that cut down our options. On the brighter side, it made us look harder for something new to watch and found yet another series we would happily binge on. This is what we watched in February… The Adults Cruising With Jane Mcdonald We watched the first series a couple of months ago for the first time and absolutely loved it. We aren’t usually ones to watch regular TV so this was a new one for us but we… View Post

How To Make a DIY Dinosaur Tail

When I was younger I loved playing dress up, whether it was in an old bridesmaid dress or in my dad’s dressing gown pretending to be a wizard.

What better thing than a dinosaur tail to get those prehistoric imaginations back to life. You can adapt the colours of this to give your little dinosaurs their own style and flare.
