Finding Nemo was the heartwarming family animation that hit cinema screens in 2003 and immediately became a hit with children and adults alike.
Now the long-awaited trailer for its sequel Finding Dory has been released and, I have to admit I’m more than a little excited.
Obviously because I just know my little girl is going to love it…!
This time the story centres on the lovable, but forgetful blue tang Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), who joined Nemo’s father on his original search.
Here, (after waiting more that a decade – no pressure Disney/Pixar), we’re set to follow Dory on her mission to find her own family.
Take a peak at the trailer before it hits cinemas at the end of July. You’re welcome.
It’s the little things that make a difference, isn’t it?
And so the whole family have been road-testing some fabulous socks from the aptly named Sock Shop for the last few weeks.
We’ve all been impressed by how super soft their Bamboo fabric collection is. Not only that, the skin-friendly material contains natural antibacterial properties to prevent smelly feet – and let’s be honest, that’s a massive plus whatever age you are!
I love seeing a bit of colour on my kids so it’s great that the collection is available in a range of gorgeous shades for both children and adults, as well as school uniform white.
The website also caters to those of you looking for some quirky novelty socks – I fell in love with some great pineapple socks which have been helping me project some tropical vibes whilst it pours with rain outside! I couldn’t resist them…despite having a slight allergy to the fruit! #lifeisunfair

NO matter how hard I try, with two kids my flat is ALWAYS overflowing with toys! So, if like me you’ve had enough, why not give the British Heart Foundation a call?
The charity which funds vital heart research, has put together a dedicated team to come to your door to collect up all those unwanted pre-loved toys.
From Monday April 8 to Friday April 12, a fleet of van drivers will be on hand to pick up toys – both big and small – simply give them a call to book.
To add a personal touch, they’re encouraging you to label up the item and write a little about the toy, so its new owner can find out where it came from – a fun activity to get the children involved in!
There’s also the chance to get active on social media with the hashtag #MyToyStory to talk about the toy you’re donating.
Last year, the event raised a massive £3m!

With the onset of the wintry weather, it would be great of the only thing us mums had to worry about was kitting out our little ones in warm clothes, putting up the Christmas tree and – constantly – replacing lost gloves.
Unfortunately as the temperature quickly dropped I was having to contend with my little girl’s dry skin which was driving her crazy and her constant complaints about having ‘itchy legs’.
On the look out for a solution I came across Dry Skin Baby Lotion by Green People’s Organic Babies, part of their No Scent Range. The fact that it doesn’t contain any chemicals or perfumes is a total bonus, and I have to admit that I’m one of these parents who appreciate organic products, believing there’s a better chance your little one won’t have any adverse reaction to the product.
Certified Organic, 100 per cent free of Parabens and Lanolin, with ingredients that help to soothe and moisturise your little one’s skin – Hemp Seed oil, Aloe Vera, Apricot oil and Marigold – I was almost sold before I’d tried it! But after using the product for a couple of weeks I would definitely recommend it. With a price tag of £9.45 for 150ml it’s not cheap, but luckily a little goes a long way, so I believe it’s worth the money. Plus I no longer have to listen to my daughter’s complaints about ‘itchy legs’!
