As expected it took about an hour to get there from Waterford. I must admit my first impression was “This is the best Carlow has to offer?” Now, granted I had only pulled up in the carpark and was very HANGRY!! it was 2pm and I hadn’t eaten yet.

We were asked to go on the Rathwood Easter Train and let you fine people know what we thought (* We were provided with free tickets for review purposes). It is egg-sactly the kind of thing we had planned for the midterm and so didn’t take me long to say yes, especially as it combines 3 of my favourite things; family fun days, chocolate and really really bad Easter puns.

It’s only just over an hour from our home in Kilmeaden, County Waterford to Rathwood, on the Wicklow/Carlow border. We were meeting cousins there, they travelled from just outside Wexford town and it took them egg-sactly an hour to arrive.

Did you know that you can get cake delivered? I mean actually delivered, right through your letterbox. Waiting for you or whoever you’ve ordered it for when they arrive home from work.
Daddy Poppins was contacted by www.bakerdays.com and asked to review a letterbox cake. What would you do if someone offered you free cake? I said yes…. this is what happened the day the cake arrived.
Daddy P previews the Interactive Worry Plague from the Irish Fairy Door Company. A heads up for those looking for a Christmas present for a worrisome or anxious child. (or just one that loves fairies).

So the second free game this month on PlayStation Plus is Transformers Devastation, I wasn’t expecting much seeing as they were also giving away Resident Evil this month. (You can check out my review of that here) I turned to… Continue Reading →
