    Fife Autocentre Mobile Tyre Fitting – Good For Lock Down Car Care?

    Advertisement: This is a sponsored post written in collaboration with Fife Autocentre. I have been paid to feature them here on this site. Disclaimer: The content is written by me in my own words but is not a review of the service. When I heard that lock down was happening, I had lots of worries. They were probably the same as yours. What does it even mean? How long will it last? Will we be allowed to go to supermarkets? One thing I didn’t think about was my car, and I probably should have because in my house, our cars are what’s caused us the most trouble. Firstly, my husband‘s…

    Home Schooling Resources: The Bear And The Piano

    I’ve tried to steer clear of anything virus related on this site because I think many people are being overwhelmed by what’s going on in the world right now and need some escape. I refer to it as “the weirdness” because I’m fed up with the buzz phrases like “the new normal” and “these challenging times.” And if I hear one more person say the word “unprecedented”… I like to think that Rock Paper Spirit can be that place where we can escape. However, there is no escaping that our lifestyles have changed, especially if you’re a parent and having to teach your child as well as get on with…

    Mr Potato Head – Movin Lips Review

    Life as a family blogger is weird. One day you’re writing about tea, the next you’re writing about press trips and then other days you’re writing about Mr. Potato Head? Yes, he’s back! When I was a little girl, I didn’t have a Mr. Potato Head, a fact that has bugged me since childhood. Everyone else had one but not me. Like many toys that I have never owned myself, I have, as a parent, taken great pleasure in seeing my son play with them… and taking a turn myself. Before I continue with this review, I should add that this item was gifted by Hasbro. I have received no…

    Bunty Pet Products Review: Rum’s New Love

    If you’re a regular reader of Rock Paper Spirit, you’ll know that I adore my dog, Rum. He’s a wee cracker. Rum is an almost four year old Jack Russell and he’s not just a pet. He’s part of the family, the best therapist I could ask for and he is also an influencer in his own right. That’s correct, you didn’t misread that. The biggest fee I’ve ever commanded for my freelance writing on this site was brought in by Rum. It’s a special kind of dog who can contribute to the running of his human’s household, isn’t it? This week, Rum received another gift through the post from…

    Adagio Teas Review

    As a blogger, I’m given the opportunity to try some really interesting product that I wouldn’t otherwise have heard of if I wasn’t blogging. One of those products is Adagio Teas. And to my shame, I received a huge box of Adagio Teas and brewing accessories as a gift way back in June and this is me just getting around to writing the review. This is partly because the box was absolutely massive and it’s taken time to get through them all, and partly because I have been trying to find my feet, firstly in the new job and then having left the new job. But that’s a story for…
