I’m watching you…always watching you…

Only if you’re at my door that is – thanks to my new ‘Ring’ doorbell. We finally got round to putting it up last week and it’s been great.

So far I’ve been able to speak directly to a delivery driver and instruct him to leave my parcel in a safe space instead of taking it back to the depot with him and I also know when any postman, leaflet droppers or cold callers have knocked at the door.

My daughter likes to press it every time we come home (something I hope she gets bored of quickly haha). It was so simple to set up and the app talked you through everything in real time.

If you’re looking for a bit more peace of mind or are out a lot when things get delivered, I would definitely recommend ‘Ring’ – although my partner now knows exactly how many things I order and gets notified like me when a delivery man is at the door haha!

I would love to add a few more ‘Ring’ products to my collection in the future as the camera quality is fantastic.

So now I just need some *actual* guests (not postmen, delivery drivers etc) to try it out…although there’s no guarantees I’ll actually answer the door…I’ll just talk to you through the speaker haha! X

The story of Benjy Bunn…

We were lucky enough to be sent a copy of ‘Benjy Bunn’s Busy Day’ so tonight, after bath time my babies and I sat down to read what Benjy had been getting up too. 


You could be mistaken for thinking that Benjy is a naughty bunny…but that’s not the case, he just wants to help even if he gets things wrong along the way. 

The Benjy series was written in 1973 by Bev Scott Prior as a story for her children, now all these years later it has been illustrated by her own grandchildren which I think makes the book that little bit more special. 

My six year old managed to read the book to her brother almost without any help from me and her favourite part was when he tried to make his mummy a cake, she also loved the reoccurring worm illustrations and actively looked for him every time she turnt the page. When asked if she thought Benjy was a naughty bunny, she replied; ‘No mummy, he’s just trying to be helpful!’ 

Overall we really enjoyed the book and can’t wait to find out what trouble Benjy will get into next time…
