Is Doctor Who a Religion?

Something fun for Doctor Who Day 🙂

Is Doctor Who a Religion?

Personally I think the guy is over thinking things. But, if Doctor Who is a religion, could Harry Potter or Star Trek also be seen as a religion?

“Look at That View!” #MySundayPhoto

As is the way, sometimes children have a little too much energy at the wrong time.

In order to help with this, the small one and I went for a walk this evening, during which we saw the above.

“Can I see it from higher”, she asked, wanting to be picked up. Up on seeing the sunset her eyes seemed to fill with wonder.
“Wow. What a view.” Was her response.


The 12th Doctor. Some Doctor Who Highlights…

If you’re a Doctor Who fan you should already know this.

If you’re a scifi fan, you more than likely already know this. (No actually you should already know this.)

Either way. There is new Doctor Who happening!

If you’re needing to catch up on some of the previous Doctor – you could do far worse then spend 12 minutes on watching this.

Sunset Over Exeter #MySundayPhoto

One of the handy parenting things about Exeter, is how useful a nice flat path along a river is when you’re trying to teach a small one to ride a bike. Obviously because its flat…

You also get the occasional encouraging “good luck” from cyclists going past.

Then there is also the above backdrop to all of this


THAT Doctor Who trailer!

I know that every other blog who even mutters about scifi has already posted the new Doctor Who trailer, but Birthdays have happened which meant less time on a  computer. (On the subject of birthdays, check out instagram for some pics from it).

But anyway… that Doctor Who trailer…

Yeap. It looks different. That’s what Doctor Who does. (Compare Tom Bakers first series with Jon Pertwee’s last).

Personally, I think it looks fun. There’s enough depressing stuff around the world, can we have some fun?

Besides if it turns out to be rubbish, at least it will be all change in a year or two.

Making Magic Jars.

(This post could also be called “Craft That I’m Actually Happy To Do”, or “How To Make Magic Without The Mess”.)

I’m not a fan of craft. Well, I’m not a fan of craft when it’s just me and the little one.

So Glow DIY Magic Jars ReviewPerhaps it’s the mess. Particularly when the glitter comes out. I quite like the idea of Mummy not coming back home from work, to find the place looks like a child’s craft factory.

When I got the option of trying out So Glows DIY Magic Jars, I knew our crafty girly would be up for it. But privately hoped I wouldn’t be the parent around to try it out.

Well that wasn’t to be.

The small ones reaction to it wasn’t what I expected. Looking at the girl on the box she said, “Shes got pink finger nails, like mine.”

Good to see that the marketing on the box works.

So Glow DIY Magic Jars ReviewOpening the box calmed my mess-aware fears quickly. Step one of the instructions was to put a cover over the table. Liked that. The following steps were very simple, and kept anything that could have made a mess – mess free. (Unless of course you spill the water, but I’m not sure you can blame So Glow for that.)

What you end up with is little jars, with coloured water, glitter, and a little toy in. Oh and it all lights up when you shake it! Its almost like you shake it to wake it. (Wasn’t that the Orangina tag line?)

That, combined with the stickers, made for a very excited 5 year old when Mummy came back home, she was very keen to show the magic jars to!

This isn’t a quick activity if you have one child and a pack of multiple jars you find doing a few one after the other. Because it seems, doing one jar isn’t enough.
The So Glow Magic Jars are available from Argos – and well, I honestly reckon they would make a great present for crafty young ones.
