Join the Pony Tails Club

Join the World Horse Welfare Pony Tails Club

Now that Marianna is getting older I'm constantly on the lookout for interesting - yet low cost! - stuff for her. It was during one of these internet sweeps that I came across the Pony Tails Club. Because, as Jane Austen would probably have observed if she hadn't changed her mind about Harris Bigg-Wither, it is a truth universally acknowledged that girls under the age of ten are obsessed with horses.

The club is the junior branch of World Horse Welfare, an organisation which works to stamp out equine suffering worldwide. As a member of the club children are encouraged to be kind to horses and help fundraise for the charity. The welcome pack comes with a saving box to colour in and build, and a sheet of fundraising ideas ranging from sending in used stamps to hosting a hula hoop contest with friends.

I really liked how achievable the ideas are for children; e.g. the website suggests a little fundraising party with 10 friends could raise £5 - enough to feed 5 horses for a day. When children send in money they've raised they get a personalised certificate and a stamp in their passport, which is a really sweet touch.

It's not all about fundraising though! Club membership also means a little magazine sent twice a year with competitions, puzzles, and plenty of photos of cute ponies. Other goodies include a membership card, badge, stickers, and a passport for filling in details of horsey visits and activities. Marianna was so excited to get her own post, and was positively overjoyed to find the large double sided pony poster.

So delighted that she then set about going for a ride on the ponies. Oh, to be four...

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
