Win a Mr Tumble’s Something Special Christmas Party Album

It’s coming up to Christmas and I am starting to encourage the children to get into the Christmas spirit.  It’s a fabulously magical time for little ones and one way of making everyone feel more Christmassy is by singing Christmas songs.  Now although embarrassing I will admit there are quite a few that I don’t know all the words to that’s fine as Mr Tumble has come to my rescue this year with his first ever Christmas Album, what amazing timing!

tumble1Clearly this was fate as this super Christmassy album has just about every child appropriate Christmas song you could possibly need.

The Album is titled Mr Tumble’s Something Special Christmas Party and contains 20 songs including:


1             Here Comes Santa Claus

2             Do You Wanna Build a Snowman

3             Santa Claus is Coming to Town

4             Winter Wonderland

5             Frosty the Snowman

6             It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

7             A Sleigh Ride Together with You

8             White Christmas

9             I Can’t Wait for Christmas

10          Silent Night

11          Let it Snow

12          Jingle Bells

13          All I want for Christmas is My 2 Front Teeth

14          Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

15          Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

16          12 Days of Christmas

17          Little Drummer Boy

18          The Xmas Song

19          Have Yourself a Merry Little Xmas Time

20          We Wish You a Merry Xmas

The album contains brand new studio recordings of 20 much-loved classic Christmas songs, with a Mr Tumble twist.  Tracks include Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree, Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and many more, including Do You Want To Build A Snowman from the kid’s favourite blockbuster hit film, Frozen (OMG that’s brilliant!).

CBeebies’ Mr Tumble (played by Justin Fletcher) is one of the biggest and most well-known celebrities for pre-school children. How appropriate then, that he joins his peers with an album of everyone’s favourite Christmas hits.

Not only does Mr Tumble have a great Christmas album, he also has some great toys available for little ones including the Mr Tumble Fun Sounds Musical Car available from Golden Bear Toys.

The Foodies Guide to a Millionaires Christmas Feast

Every year I do Christmas at mine for part of the family.  I initially offered to do this because I enjoy cooking but also I am an extremely fussy eater so to have burnt offerings served to me on a plate simply won’t do.  Yes I am a food snob in some cases but I really can’t help if I am a lover of tasty, well made, not overly cooked or greasy food.  My only way to avoid this was by offering to make the food and having tasted my food before not a single person argued (fortunately for me).

 After making a whole turkey for a few years and the subsequent years just the crown (thanks to fussy eaters other than myself, I would just eat the veg and pigs in blankets) I began to find the making of Christmas dinner a tedious task with the same meal being made year, after year, after year, after year, after year (you get the idea).  Naturally I got fed up of this so decided to spice it up a bit so one year we had lamb, another beef and I continued to mix it up a little here and there.  This year I have been inspired by a book ‘Oh Come Al Ye Tasteful – The Foodie’s Guide to a Millionaires Christmas Feast’ by Ian Flitcroft.

With the promise that the book would help me to “create a Christmas dinner that will so wildly impressive that even the most curmudgeonly great aunt will swoon” I was curious to see what delights would be hidden among the pages.  A mix of unusual recipes from this enthusiastic foodie intermingled with an amusing commentary makes it an interesting read.  Dishes such as Reindeer Nibbles (no it doesn’t consist of reindeer) and Turkey a la Perigord will get those taste buds tingling.  Cocktails to wash the food down including The Goldfinger Babe and Myrrhtini and don’t forget the most important part of any meal the dessert!!!!!  The Christmas plum and chocolate bomb sounds divine and combines the traditional with something a bit new and different.

Why not give these After-Eight flavoured turkish delight a go!

This is a well written, witty recipe book albeit not extremely large, then again who wants a book stuffed full of mediocre recipes when you have a good basis of good recipes that are guaranteed to impress.  If I had written it myself I would probably have added in just a few more recipe options.  Just a quick warning, if you opt to make the Jerusalem artichoke recipe which does sound rather tasty (and as an added bonus it’s super simple to make) as Ian himself states there is a reason these are sometimes called “fartichokes” (lol).  Well worth a read it is available in hardback from amazon for £6.99, the kindle edition is £4.79.

Want to try some of the recipes featured in the book?  You have a chance to win a copy of the book plus £25 worth of supermarket vouchers for the supermarket of your choice.

Bio-Oil Bump Tracker Pregnancy App

I love Bio-Oil.  I started using it many years ago when I was pregnant with my daughters all over my body and also sometimes on my face and even on the ends of my hair.  For those unfamiliar with Bio-Oil it’s one of those products that every woman really should have a bottle of in the bathroom cabinet.

Bio-Oil helps to prevent the appearance of stretch marks by maximising skin elasticity when used regularly.  It contains nourishing, healing and skin improving ingredients such as Vitamin A and E, Rosemary, Calendula, Chamomile and Lavender oils as well as a unique ingredient PurCellin Oil.  This unique ingredient helps the ingredients absorb through to the second layer of the skin were they can produce the most beneficial results whereas most other creams are oil based and only penetrate the top layer of the skin so are not as beneficial.

Clinical trials have shown Bio-Oil to be beneficial in helping with:

Scars – improving the appearance of new and old scars.

Stretch Marks – helps with the prevention of their formation and improve the appearance of existing stretch marks.

Uneven Skin Tone – whether the cause is hormonal fluctuations or excessive sun exposure it helps to improve its appearance.

Ageing Skin – improves the appearance of ageing skin by improving tone, sagging and wrinkles.

Dehydrated Skin.

Bio-Oil knows how special a time pregnancy is and that the nine months can literally fly by.  To help us remember this special time and enable us to share the excitement with others they have developed and launched a free new app: Bio-Oil Bump Tracker.

tracker 2

The Bio-Oil Bump Tracker enables mums-to be to track their changing bodies from the early stages of pregnancy straight through to the birth of their baby.  Once the first picture has been taken the app will create a ghost background image so that their bump profile is perfectly aligned for photography each time.  The app will even set a reminder each week which is great for those of us suffering from baby brain allowing them to record their pregnancy completely.  Once you have taken a few pictures the app will put them together and play them in quick succession in a time-lapse video so you can see your bump growing.


Once your little one is born you can then take a picture of yourself holding your little bundle of joy to complete your pregnancy story.  You can then enter the baby’s name, date of birth and weight and share the video of images with friends and family.

The Bio-Oil Bump Tracker is a free app available for Apple users that creates a unique keepsake that you can treasure forever available to down load from https://(nofollow) or http://(nofollow) (remove “(nofollow)” part to follow the link).
