Thames Rockets

Thames Rockets

Thames Rockets

We have just recently celebrated Bradley’s 14th birthday, we celebrated his birthday in a different way this year, to celebrate we headed off to London. Bradley is a little thrill-seeker and really enjoys his fun and adventures so we took him on a surprise trip to London to experience his fastest, funniest and craziest trip to-date with Thames Rockets.

We took Bradley on The Ultimate London Adventure, This is a speed boat down the iconic River Thames sight-seeing from a different view with a BIG difference. We went with Bradley sight-seeing (teen style) by speed-boat, he got to travel at a speed of 35 MPH up the Thames, in Bradley’s words “James Bond style”.

Bradley enjoyed a 50 minute fun-filled and adrenaline-filled trip. Before you step onto the boat you are given a life jacket and a waterproof coat to wear (coat is optional), you are given a safety briefing and then allowed to take your seat for the thrilling experience. The whole experience was fun-filled from start to finish.

Thames Rockets are situated at boarding gate one of the Millennium Pier!

Whilst on our travels we got to see some amazing views of London attractions such as:

  • Big Ben
  • The London Eye
  • The Shard
  • The Gherkin
  • HMS Belfast
  • London Bridge
  • Somerset House
  • Tate Modern
  • Tower Bridge
  • Shakespeare’s Globe

Once we got past Tower bridge the throttle was then opened, due to there being speed restrictions on the Thames before the bridge. We all had an amazing time speeding through Canary Wharf listening to a medley of feel-good tunes. Bradley really enjoyed waving bye to the boats left bobbing on the Thames as we go speeding on past. The staff was all very friendly and very knowledgeable on the history of London, Bradley enjoyed learning some facts from the very friendly guide on our way back.

Here is our video of the thrilling experience.

If this is a tour that you would like to book you can do so by visiting their website and select what adventure you would like to go on. If you have any questions you would like to discuss you can call them on – 02079288933 or even email them –

Do you have a thrill-seeker who would enjoy this experience?

How would you like to win a pair of tickets to step aboard for a thrill-seeking adventure?

St John Ambulance And The Chokeables

St John Ambulance And The Chokeables

St John Ambulance And The Chokeables

There is currently a campaign #thechokeables which is aimed at raising awareness with St John Ambulance and The Chokeables, around the risks of children choking and how to help a choking child. St John Ambulance believe that everyone should have the skill and also the confidence to know what to do in an emergency.

I am sure that all of us parents share the same fear of our child choking – St John Ambulance have found that over 40% have witnessed their child choke and when quizzed on their first aid it was found that almost four-fifths didn’t know what to do in this situation which is pretty scary.

To help raise awareness St John Ambulance have made a short animation movie The Chokeables, this animated film features the voices of:

David Walliams

David Mitchell

Johnny Vegas

Sir John Hurt

St. John’s ambulance are asking for us all to share the film online to all help each other to possibly learn how to save a life. In The Chokeables the celebrities take on the characters of animated objects that could potentially choke a child: a small princess toy, a pen lid, a jelly baby and a peanut. They’ve joined together because they’ve had enough and want to show how easy it is to save a choking child.

Do you have 40 seconds to learn how to save a choking child, this video could make a big difference.

As a small gift you now have the chance to win a first aid kit with St John Ambulance And The Chokeables.

To enter the competition all you have to do is fill out the rafflecopter below, the competition is open to UK residents only, you must be over 18 to enter. All entries will be checked and they must be valid at the end of the competition. Good luck to all that enter. Ends 14/10/2015

The first aid kit contains:

  • First aid emergency booklet
  • Washproof plasters pk10
  • Number 16 eye pad first aid dressing – Sterile
  • Disposable triangular bandage 90 x 90 x 130cm – Non sterile

beauty., competition., hair remover

Hair she goes

The hair she goes hair removal kit


I have been using this hair she goes hair removal kit and I have been very impressed with it, this has been so easy to use and it has been very effective, it is a lovely size, you can tuck it away nicely in a draw or even keep it in your handbag if you wish, it comes beautifully presented in a lovely box so it can even be given as a lovely gift.

This product is chemical free, 100% natural and there has been no animal testing done, I have found this product to be a much nicer way to rid the facial hair than waxing, and much more quicker than using tweezers just on their own.

How to use :

Hold the hair she goes at each end, you then bend it and place it onto your face, keep it in the same position and slowly rotate the rubber handles, clockwise and anticlockwise, whilst gently moving the remover in an upwards motion.

That is all you have to do, and for those hard to reach places there is also a handy set of tweezers.

How it works

It works by gently plucking and removing the unwanted hair with the tightly sprung coil, it removes a few hairs at a time so it is much faster and much less painful than other ways I have tried.
I have not had any irritation from using this hair remover kit, I have found it quick and easy to use, I have found it great to be able to naturally remove my hair without the use off waxes and creams.

I wont lie, I did find this painful for the first few times I used it, but I find it much more comfortable to use now I have been using it more.


This kit retails at £36 but there is a sale on and they are currently going for £17.99, if this is something that you would like to buy you can find the kit here.

We have a 25% voucher code to offer all our readers that would like to purchase one of these kits, all you have to do is click on the link above and at the checkout add our unique code what is, Housetnr and you will get your 25% discount.

My dad just lost his job, so i need money to make my mega-amazing zombie movie and save this family, but there is NO WAY I’m selling my xbox! so I’ve written to the queen, Harry Styles and a bunch of other famous people, who MIGHT lend me a hand, or a tenner, but so far nobody has written back ….

If you have any bright ideas I’d love to here them.
Good luck, and have fun.

Harry Riddles

This book is aimed at 9 yrs + and was sent out for Bradley so I am passing you over to Bradley for this review as the book was sent out for him to review so it is only fair that he completes his review by typing up what he has read about and shares it all with you as he has been very excitedly wanting to do so.

Hello everyone

Shoutykid by Simon Mayle

My name is Bradley I am 12 years old, I really enjoy reading, I will sit and read sometimes during the day if it is raining but I mainly enjoy reading at bedtime as I am mostly an outdoors kid during the day or at my kids clubs that I go to like art class or kick boxing and I also go to music classes as well.

I have been reading the book called shoutykid and I was really excited about getting this book to review as it looked really cool, I thought the book was so funny and it made me laugh, the book has loads of pictures in it that I really liked and have tried drawing myself as I love drawing, the book is about Harry who’s dad has lost his job and Harry writes letters to famous people and one of the letters was to the queen asking if his family can stay there as Buckingham palace has loads of room.
Throughout the story harry is involved in all different types of situations that he has to solve.
  • he wants to help Jessica realise her dream of becoming a actress so he tries to get her a slot for their play at the national theatre.
  • when his family are faced with debt problems he asks the primeminister if he would like to rent his home as a holiday house to make some money.

I really enjoyed this book, I loved all the characters, the book made me laugh from the first chapter through to the end, I have so many favourite parts of this book number one being opening a can of wuppass in chapter one.

Harry sends e-mails, text messages and posts on community forums as well as sending the letters to famous people.
This book was written in a teenagers way of understanding and also helps them face up to the new experiences of cyber bullying.
