You know you’ve got a teenager in the house when…..

Happy Christmas and Merry New Year.

Oh hang on, that is so last week.

Now, some of you may be wondering if you have a teenager in residence, or simply a very tall and articulate toddler. Next time you are unsure whether you have a teenager in residence or not, please consult our easy guide.

You know you’ve got a teenager in the house when…

  • There are no crisps
  • All your good nail varnishes have gone
  • Ditto your hairspray and your second best eye liner
  • And your money
  • There are adult-sized people in the house with child faces. They are very polite, but they have eaten all the crisps.
  • Someone is singing the theme from Titanic in the shower
  • And has been doing so for at least half an hour
  • Someone who loves you is telling you that they hate you
  • You hear the words Do I have to?, I’m not your slave and Have you tried turning it off and then turning it back on again? several times a day
  • Your car has a full booking system even though you have not officially qualified as a taxi driver
  • Despite sitting in one place on their laptop all the time their bedroom will be will very messy.
  • And is never tidied. Ever
  • And even when they claim to have tidied their room it looks exactly the same.
  • They ring the doorbell EVERY DAY even though they have their own key.
  • They pop off at a moments notice.
  • Everything you say has to be repeated twice. No one was listening either time.
  • The chocolate has a habit of disappearing. It’ll be in the same place as the crisps.

The Benedict Cakerbatch

It’s the end of term and El has done very well at school. She has been made Technology Commissioner and won an award for being the person to borrow the most books from the school library.

To celebrate, Jae has splashed out a whole £1.69 on Benedict Cumberbatch (as Sherlock) cake toppers. Yes, that’s a thing.

This is because Sherlock is El’s new obsession, and also because if somebody went to the trouble of making Benedict Cumberbatch cake toppers then it would be rude not to.

So this is how we ended up making a Benedict Cakerbatch.

So far so ordinary. What these cakes need is Benedict Cumberbatch

Baby You Can Drive My Car

Cars are big. Cars are scary. El is fine riding but driving must be terrifying!

Of course El is too young to drive a car. Right…..?

Do you recognise the driver?

Driving a car as a kid is scary because it feels like you are in control of this massive thing and you are worried that you might kill everyone.

But other than that it was wonderful!

Beep beep beep beep yeah!

No one was killed in the making of this blog post

Angry Bird Spotted On The Apprentice

We’ve been watching The Apprentice.

And there’s an elephant in the room.

Or is that an angry bird?

Extreme Reading – a new Olympic sport?

The thing we really liked about the Olympics was that there was a sport for everybody.

Actually, not quite.

Where were the bookworm sports? Maybe next time. El has been practising her Extreme Reading.

Event One: Reading whilst walking

Event Two: Reading whilst climbing

The Finals: Reading in the winner’s enclosure

Read any good books lately?

3 free and easy things to do in the half term holidays

How grotty is that weather? We went out to go swimming and came home soggier than we were in the pool cos of the rain. So if you are stuck indoors like us, here are 3 cool things to do for free in your house.

1. Personalise your keys
We got this idea from A Thrifty Mrs. All you need is your house or locker key, and some nail varnish. Paint keys, let it dry, admire.

Thanks to El’s best friend for lending her the nail polish. El has her own she just didn’t have that colour and couldn’t be bothered to get it herself.

2. Balloon volleyball
This is a popular game with parents, because it keeps kids active and their mum or dad gets to have a little lie down.

All you need to play this game is a balloon, two kids and a double bed or maybe a sofa. Kids bat the balloon to each other with their hands. Parent lies on the bed or sofa and keeps score.

That’s all there is to it. (Try it, it’s better than it sounds).

3. TV Moustache
To play this game, you will need to cut out a moustache-shaped piece of paper. You will also need a tiny little bit of Blu Tack.

Then, watch a DVD. When you get a full face shot of an actor looking particularly morose, pause the DVD.

Then stick the moustache on the actor and have a good laugh about it.

And that’s all there is to TV moustache.

Beards and moustaches that are not beards and moustaches

Some people think that just because you are a little girl, or a woman, you can’t have a beard or a moustache.

What rot!

People can do anything they want to. Not everything is how it appears to be on the surface. Don’t let the negative people put you down.

Be inspired! Achieve!

You can make a tash from mash

Or brush your face

Little brother’s finger can be useful sometimes:

Some moustaches are magic:

Mmmm…spaghetti….

Double mmm….whipped cream

We hope you are inspired by this post to be whatever you want to be!

PS Also, whipped cream does not stick on to your face as well as you might think it should.

Not available in shops

Dolls can be great, but we have been wondering – why are there not more nerdy dolls?

What has gone wrong in the world that you can buy a Justin Bieber doll but no geeky girl dolls?

Something like this:

Can I get a few books with that?

El doll comes with a satchel, more books than you can fit into the satchel, glasses, and plans to rule the universe one day.

Jae doll is more of a vintage model. She comes with techy accessories, both traditional and modern. No liquorice allsorts as she has already eaten them. This doll has an extra arm which is very useful when you are a mummy doll.

Batteries not included

What do you think? We reckon it could really take off.

 

El & Jae

PS Thank you to Amazing Daisy for doll designs.
