How to Keep Kids Safe Online – Home & Away with F-Secure TOTAL {Sponsored}

I don’t know about you, but by the time the kids have bamboozled me with VPNs and V-Bucks, I feel a bit out of my parenting depth when it comes to keeping the kids safe online. But I’m pretty sure I’m not alone as a recent Net Mums survey found that nearly a third of parents let their kids use the internet without any restrictions.

Sonic’s Back | SEGA x Amazon {Sponsored}

“Boys, do you know what SEGA is?” I asked with nostalgia quite literally pouring from my eyes. Surely, this was a no-brainer; like asking anyone if they’re familiar with the work of S-Club-7 or The Back Street Boys; if they know the moves to The Macarena or how to play POGs. So, imagine my bitter disappointment when the reply was, “A saga? Yeah, it’s a Viking story, isn’t it?!”

Rewind 26 years and my envy of anyone with a SEGA Mega Drive was raging. Sure, the ‘super Italian brothers’ (who shall not be named) were great an’all, but they were nothing compared to Sonic’s speed, the graphics of the SEGA and the unforgettable “S-E-G-A” as the – now “retro”- console whirred into life.
