Netflix Update

So far this year has been very up and down for my family and I. More down it has to be said but when you’re down the only way is up right?!

One constant, one thing that has been there no matter what has been Netflix. Seriously! When we needed a laugh, a cry, something easy to watch, the children to be kept occupied, early mornings or late nights where sleep was neither staying or coming to me in the first place; Netflix came to the rescue.

Here’s a selection of what we’ve been watching.


Paw Patrol – Needs no introduction does it?! Both small people love this!

My Little Pony – There’s a great selection of My Little Pony shows and movies currently streaming but without doubt, Rainbow Rocks is Abbie’s favourite. She dances and sings to her heart’s content.

Thomas & Friends – Thomas needs no introduction either! Harry’s favourite by a mile.

Alvin & the Chipmunks – Who remembers watching Alvin & the Chipmunks? This was a show that I enjoyed myself way back when we had to wait until a particular day at a particular time. It’s now very popular with my own children.

Spirit: Riding Free – Abbie has started watching this Netflix original. It’s great!

We’ve had quite a few ‘Movie Nights’ with the children too, watching The Bee Movie, Postman Pat, Flushed Away, Thomas & The Magic Railroad, to name a few.

Puffin Rock
Season 2 of Puffin Rock is now streaming too (I actually like this one myself!!)

This week Lisa over at Bad Mammy published a great list of Coming of Age Movies currently streaming that may be fun to watch with your tweens. Caoimhe and I plan to watch some of them together.


Bloodline – All three seasons available, all three brilliant. Definitely one of my Netflix favourites.

What’s for Sale? With a View: Season 1 – Mr. Simply Homemade watched this. I suspect he was fantasising about a house overlooking a lake in Canada or some such place!! He enjoyed it.

Stay tuned for more from me about Netflix. September is looking to continue with some excellent series making a return; Call the Midwife season 5 is back on September 6th (yes!) Happy Valley season 2 streams from September 15th and one I am really looking forward to, Jack Whitehall: Travels with my father: Season 1 arrives September 22.

As a member of the Netflix Ireland Stream Team I have received complimentary Netflix membership and in return will be featuring Netflix related blog posts. All opinions are my own!

  1. I’ll definitely be adding the house documentaries to my list! Not sure about the films though – one includes most hated film ever, but it is loved by many, I know

    1. We really enjoyed the documentaries 😊 I’m guessing PS I Love You?? Not a patch on the book but stuck it one night for an easy watch, background noise so to speak, actually enjoyed it, didn’t like it at all first time round lol! (Probably says more about my frame of mind than anything else!!)
