With over an hours worth of fantastic adventures from CiTV’s most successful animated series.

Episodes …

Horrid Henry And The New Best Friend
Horrid Henry gets himself a new best friend, but it’s not long before Nice Nicola turns into Nasty Nicola, and things go from bad to worse.

All three of my children love the horrid Henry series and both of the older children, little man 12 and his sister Alice Sara 10, have enjoyed both the CiTV series along with the book collection. Now the toddler, Harley age 3, is fast becoming an avid fan of this Mischievous little character.

This particular DVD has been an instant hit with the kids and I’ve also found myself engaging in a little Horrid Henry when the toddler has demanded that I do so (wink, wink).

Anyone thinking of purchasing the DVD has my recommendation, after all, its not every day your children are quiet for an entire hour, managing to reframe from fighting with one another is it?

The Dream Idols

17 Jul


Warning this post is a little out the ordinary… Well for me anyway!

I feel that I work hard at being a mum, sometimes you just have to let go! That’s why I decided to have a night on the tiles last weekend.

A few days prior my email pinged and to be honest, at first I was a tad shocked when opening it.

A request from a PR, an invitation to an event!

The Dream Idols live tour sponsored by Boylebingo. I had to laugh, why these Dream Idols sounded like some strippers group… Oh… Hang on, they are!

Dream Idols would be appearing at Liquid a night club located in Windsor. My VIP invite was for myself + one and after a little consideration, myself and a friend decided to check it out… After all this mum had started to forget what the inside of a night club looked like.

The show wasn’t planed to kick off till 11 pm, so, at around 9 pm myself and friend set off for the hours drive from London to Windsor. Once there we were shown straight through and given a cocktail. Before we knew it we were in the ladies room, surrounded by pink balloons and several screaming women.

Up on the stage were five guys doing their thing. Now before you go on about exploitation, let me tell you, these guys seemed to be loving every second of the attention they were lapping up from their many fans.


Boylebingo are the official sponsor of the Dream Idols live tour. This meant that we even got to play at bit of bingo too! The prize, well use your imagination.

Apart from the quick game of bingo the majority of the show was made up off cheeky dance routines and even a little bit of singing from one of the lads.

There was uniforms and audience participation. Us ladies were encouraged to engage with the boys on twitter and Facebook and there was even one or two competitions to take part in.

The show lasts for a decent amount of time, maybe just under an hour or so, then following their performance the Dream Idols pose with audience members for photos (note, there is a fee of a fiver for your printed picture).

If you fancy organising a bit of a ladies night and want to check out the Dream Idols in action, it’s worth doing so now as who knows how soon the boys next live tour will be. From what I’ve heard, the Dream Idols are set to be very busy what with them having been chosen over all other UK troops to perform at a special screening of the new motion picture “Magic Mike.” Plus the lads have also been asked to do the rounds with Channing Tatum when he does his press tour in the UK. Busy boys!



The nice surprise is that the show cost peanuts to see… Just a fiver when booking online.The fact you can stay and do some dancing in the club till closing time makes this an added bonus (check prices for each individual show online as I’m unsure if these vary from venue to venue).



In my opinion the show was reasonably priced and would make an awesome but cheap girls night out, especially if planing a hen night.

The provisional tour dates are as follows (there will be lots more added):
OCEANA. Cardiff
LAVA & IGNITE, Preston
LIQUID. Windsor
FRIDAY 20th JULY 2012
LIQUID, Oldham
KOCO, Liverpool
Ballare, Cambridge

Check out the video I made of the night… Go on you know you want to!
