K’NEX K-Force Mega Boom

When I asked my younger son if he wanted to review a K’NEX K-Force Mega Boom – that’s a K’NEX gun that fires foam bullets, his response was: ‘Mum, if you have to ask me that, you don’t know me at all!’. Well, I do know him and I knew this would be pretty much the perfect thing for him to test out. Because my son loves K’NEX. He represented the school in a building competition in year 5...

The Woman who Stole my Life by Marian Keyes

It took me AGES to read this book. Not because it was a bad book, but because the kids have been at home for the school holidays and I haven’t had my usual reading time at lunchtime. It’s a shame, because I would really have liked the chance to get into it. But, despite taking far too long to read, I did really enjoy it. Stella Sweeney, a married mum of two teenagers, lets a Range Rover out at a junction, thinking it will...
