Gadgets and Me

I must confess that I am a fan of my gadgets. Since I have been a student, I find that I need a Kindle, a phone, a laptop. I am not much of a gamer, so that is where it ends really. However, we do have other gadgets in the house like Playstations and MP3 players. It seems like technology is everywhere you look and I often here the phrase "kids were born with an iphone in their hand these days!"

One of the things that does concern me is safety. We need to protect our gadgets as, let's face it, it's not like they are cheap.

One of the ways that we can do this is by buying protective covers for phones and tablets. We like to buy cool ones that reflect our personalities. The kids have really thick rubber protective covers for their tablets, as we know only too well how clumsy kids can get! We have also had water spillages on our gadgets and this can be a nightmare - bowls of rice at the ready!

We are also concerned about insuring our products. Using something like switched on insurance could make it easier for you to claim if you do have damage to any of your gadgets. I think insurance for these types of products are a must. If they are damaged you will want to replace them and this can be very costly. Insurance is definitely something to bear  mind!

What type of gadgets do you use, and do you make sure that they are protected? I'd love to know, let me know in the comments!

Experience Days

As we are a family of 5, with numerous aunts and uncles and other family members with birthdays and anniversaries and Christmas-es - I am often on the look out for alternative gifts. We all know we love socks and smellies as gifts, but sometimes it is a good idea to try and look for something just a little bit different.

We are lucky that we do get to try out lots of different things. We are always at pantomimes, break-out rooms, shows and even sledging on fake snow!

I had read about hot air balloon experiences. These look really great and this is something that could be done as a family. I had also looked into spa days, which would also be great for when the kids are a little bit bigger. Some of my family members are real thrill-seekers and would love to do some kind of extreme sport or thrill-seeking experience, I know they have tried out sky-diving and hang-gliding - this is not for the feint hearted.

As for me, I'm a little bit old fashioned and like to keep things simple. Give me a book and some perfume any day as a present and I am more than happy! However, I am still thinking on cool presents for family members! I had thought about booking a driving experience, as I have heard that these can also be great fun.

What type of experience days are your favourite? It definitely is something worth looking in to!
