A Mammoth Christmas!

My Little Man is often tired on a Friday afternoon after a full week at preschool and, with the weather becoming colder, damper and generally more unpleasant, it is a good excuse to crack out the snuggly blankets and the DVDs.

Last year was the first time he really understood Christmas and, as he clearly remembers what a big deal it was, he’s already getting excited about the impending celebrations.

We’ve decided to take him to see Father Christmas this year (last year we thought he might have found it all a bit odd/scary) as well as a few other Christmassy activities.  Some things we are doing indoors, like making a ‘cut & stick’ list for Santa and colouring some special pictures for decorating the house.  However, sometimes he’s too tired even for that and all he really wants to do is relax with a spot of TV.

There’s nothing I love more than a film with a Christmas theme (Elf, quite simply, ROCKS) so finding an animated film with this theme that also has all his favourite Ice Age characters in it is fantastic!

Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas is released on DVD exclusively in Asda from 21st November and there are some special in-store activities taking place this week.

For my local readers the Asda in Thurrock will be hosting an activity day on Monday 21st November from 9am – 4pm and for my readers further North the Asda in Rotherham will be hosting their activities on Tuesday 22nd November from 10am – 4pm.

The activities taking place are:

  • A meet and greet with Ice Age characters Sid and Scrat
  • Free goodies
  • The making of an ice sculpture in store
  • Free face painting

And here’s a teaser of the forthcoming Ice Age 4: Continental Drift.  I spoil you, I really do!  Enjoy…..

Hakuna Matata – I need some of that!

Ever had a spell where you feel like the slightest thing can stress you out to an unbelievable level?  That’s the phase I find myself in at the moment.  I’m very lucky, there’s nothing major going on, everyone is healthy and all the ‘stresses’ are things that can be relatively easily sorted with some time and effort.  Still though, I find myself having to remind myself on a regular basis to ‘chill out’ or even to do what Frankie famously said and ‘Relax’.

Perhaps I need to watch one of the few Disney films I’ve never actually managed to see – The Lion King and, in particular,this clip!

Luckily, there’s never been a better time to watch The Lion King with it being re-released in cinemas today, but with all new 3D – very cool!

The DVD has also been re-released as a Diamond Edition and I am pretty sure this will be making its way onto my Little Man’s Christmas list for Santa.

Here’s the trailer in all its glory – I really want to go and watch it at the cinema now!
