T-Shirt Designing - Review!!

Over the weekend my girls got a bit creative....

On Saturday we were having a lazy day and boredom hit so it was the perfect time to try out the the t-shirt designing kit we were sent from BuyShirtsOnline...

Included in the kit was a Fruit of the Loom t-Shirt each, fabric pens and iron on heat transfers which were very well chosen....Disney Princesses for Ellie and One Direction for Becky.....Perfect!



I ironed the transfers on at my friends house....I don't own an iron....lol Our old one broke about a year ago and we never replaced it because I never use one....It was so simple to do....Simply iron the paper onto the t-shirt! They turned out so well...




My girls had a great time....I just let them do what they wanted with the t-shirts.....

Ellie did get a bit carried away putting too much of the paint on in some places....It came out in blobs but Becky had a steady enough hand to control the flow....

I think the end results were fantastic!



We were sent a t-shirt designing kit from BuyShirtsOnline free of charge to try...This is my honest review....All thoughts and opinions are our own.

Becky has became a big fan of watching the SacconyJoly's the YouTube family who put a new video up every day.....I don't mind her watching them....I watch them and there are worse things to watch on YouTube!

An exciting delivery and the day I actually found out my postman is called Pat!! hahaha! It really made me giggle. I am easily amused.

I got a letter from Big Fish Games.....About card details being stolen.....I was affected by this.....At least now I know where the fraud came from.....I have been paranoid since that it was something on my computer which caused it....A big sigh of relief her.

Talking Codswallop!

My Word of the Week this week is....

There has been a lot of people talking Codswallop to me this week....

Someone has bullied me and tried to control me for years....A few months ago I started to fight back and stand up to them.....I was never rude but have told them a few home truths....This person has now decided the situation is too stressful to deal with.....What they fail to understand is that I've had years of it from them....Sleepless nights, cried so many tears and felt threatened by them....Now I have come out as the bad one because I am stressing the person out by telling them the truth! Utter codswallop! Ugh! Families!!

As well as that I have had a lot of phone calls for the person who lived in this house before us....We've lived here coming up 3 years I think now....It turns out she's had loans going back years and has stopped paying them recently....She never changed her phone number on the account! Oh joy! I had someone ring asking for her and I said she doesn't live here....They didn't believe me....They thought I was her! They told me to prove I wasn't....How was I meant to do that on the phone....They said they wanted my name, date of birth and National insurance number.....hahaha I was not telling them anything and hung up on them! They could have been anyone! What Codswallop!

It turns out that at Christmas I was given some bad advice from a government service.....I rang up on Wednesday to see how things were progressing and they gave me totally different advice and information! The money I should have been getting I'm not but it's not a big miss....I've never had it so it won't be missed!!

And my girls.....They have talked a lot of Codswallop! They are both learning French at school....Both at different stages and think if they talk gobbledygook with a French accent it works....Not quite! lol 

I've used the phrase "somewhere a village is missing its idiot" more than once this week!....lol
