Review: So Slime DIY

So Slime DIY

Marianna and I have a love / hate relationship with slime - she loves it and I hate it! These are crazy times though and, once the messy mat was down and the craft apron was on, I figured a temporary lifting of the ban on indoor slime was in order.

Thankfully So Slime DIY is a brand with the slime averse parent in mind. There are plenty of slime kits on the market but they're all so, well, messy. By contrast, Slimelicious is sublime. All you need to do is pour the powder and a little water in the shaker, shake it for 30 seconds, then leave it for 5 to 10 minutes to take on the proper slime consistency.

Sweet Slimelicious

The kit also includes a mix of embellishments you can use to decorate your slime, along with two mystery charms. It's so easy you really can't go wrong. In fact, the only difficulty we had was convincing Marianna to leave the slime alone long enough for it to 'set'. It was poked and prodded constantly!

Marianna really enjoyed it though, and even I got into the spirit of things. I really liked how easy it was to make, and that you can reuse the shakers again and again. They're cute little storage containers that you can repurpose afterwards too. The powder sachets are super easy to store too if you're not looking to make up six batches of slime up all at once - we've been working our way through lots of craft kits this week and putting away the leftovers neatly is a real problem.

There are three different Slimelicious shop kits to collect: sweet shop (as pictured), ice cream shop, and soda shop. They each come with two shakers, two charms, three bags of embellishments, and six sachets of slime powder for you to make up six different coloured slimes. (Or to mix and match as you see fit, of course.)

Find them online for £9.99 each. Check out the Canal Toys website for more info and their other ranges.

British Food

A/N: On a previous blog wrote a whole series of posts on British life, explained for American fiction writers. This week I'm reposting the entry explaining British cuisine... Britain is world renowned for its stodgy, uninspiring cuisine. (Which should explain the deep suspicion Britons have of most foreign cuisine, unless it's been suitably adapted for the British palette.) BBC sitcom Goodness Gracious Me explains it best via the 'going for an English' sketch - a play on the popular British past time of 'going for an Indian (i.e. curry)'. " What's the blandest thing on the menu? " asks one character, later encouraging another, " Just have something a little bland, huh? Waiter, what have you got that is not totally tasteless? " Because, the truth is that traditional British fare is far from a taste sensation for those who haven't been raised on the stuff. Still, read on, and you can judge for yourself...

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
