Papery Peep July 2015

It’s the last Wednesday of the month, so it must mean that it’s Papery Peep time! A chance for me to talk about my month in paper, and to invite you to come share yours with me, too. We do have the ultimate in ‘papery peeping’ coming up, starting this …

‘If I Could…’

In my head, this is called the Walter Mitty post. You know, the eternal daydreamer, living life through many different guises, though all in his head? I will kick off by saying, though, that unlike Walter, I am actually happy with my life! So accepting that in reality, there’s no-one …

The Woodland Trust #NatureDetectives

What do you know about the Woodland Trust? If you were anything like me a few weeks ago, your answer may be very little. It turns out that they’re fabulous and fun once you find out a bit more, so I thought I’d share a little about them today with you. …

A 31 Days Of Paper Challenge

I know I tend to launch each month’s challenge on the first Wednesday of that month, but as August’s would ideally begin on the 1st, I thought I’d best tell you about it now. It is back, my papery Instagram challenge is here once more! I know many of you …

Chase Zurg – One For Toy Story Fans!

Little Man absolutely loves Toy Story. He watches the films regularly and plays with the toys pretty much every day. It’s a very rare day here that Woody isn’t bouncing around me as I cook the dinner! So when I spotted the Chase Zurg game from Megableu, I knew we had …

Bean Bag Bazaar Review & Give-Away

We have a new seat in our home, and it’d be fair to say that it’s popular. We have now sat on it in every room of our house and lounged outside on it in the sunshine. Such versatility is not often found in a seat, so that’s my number …

Goodbye, My Faithful Friend

We found out last month that Harry our beautiful hound had advanced stage lymphoma. We were told he might have weeks, though it could be months. I hoped for the latter, fate had different plans and opted for the former. Last week he was OK, Saturday he was a little …

Siblings July 2015

I can’t remember a time before this month that I’ve thought about and compared my two children more. People say you shouldn’t compare children, and I’m not sure why that is. Neither will be found wanting, both are equally loved, I’ve just been reflecting on their differences, that’s all. It’s …

In The Night Garden Live

My son’s very first TV love affair was with Makka Pakka, that loveable little stone stacker from In The Night Garden. When he was 1, we bought him a cuddly Makka Pakka, and he still sleeps with him now, and is the chosen toy that comes on holiday with us …

Sharing A Shell Small World Play

A joyful thing has been happening here lately. My son has discovered the wonder of books. For those of you that know me, you’ll know how happy this makes me! Don’t get me wrong, he’s always enjoyed his bedtime stories, and has had several books every night since he was …
