Educational Fun with the Kids

Like many kids these days, my children love technology. They are growing up with it, it’s perfectly normal for them to use it and I suspect they will soon be surpassing me in finding their way around the latest gadgets. I’m pretty good, but I am from the generation that …

Siblings November 2017

Another month has rolled around! So what’s this last month brought to my pair of siblings? We’ve had half term, a welcome break and it was great to see the two of them enjoying each other’s company all week. It’s funny how quickly I’ve adjusted to not having my Little …

Bassetts Vitamins Supporting Family Fun!

The summer is now a dim and distant memory. The darker days are drawing in and it’s definitely feeling chillier. The heating is on and it’s so tempting to just stay in and hibernate until the spring! I have always preferred summertime and the warmer months, and there’s no doubt …

Little Man’s First Parents Evening

Last week we went along to parents evening at the kids’ school. I was really looking forward to meeting with Little Man’s teacher. He tells me very little about his days, but what has delighted me is how happy he has been to go every single day since he started. …

An Energy Boost For The Holidays

Now that both of my children are at school, I have found that I’ve settled into something of a routine Monday to Friday each week, generally revolving around blog work, studying, the gym and housework. Yes, all the exciting things happen here! I am used to being alone for several …

Keeping A Birthday Journal

Today I am talking about keeping birthday journals, as this is something that I love doing for my children. What’s a birthday journal all about? Every year, after I put my kids to bed on their birthdays, I sit down and write in their birthday journal. It’s a keepsake that …

Siblings October 2017

Another month, another Siblings update. This month has seen another birthday here, this time it was Boo as she turned 8. I now have an 8 year old and a 5 year old, yet it feels like only yesterday that I had a baby and toddler. The time is flying …

Happy 8th Birthday, Boo!

Today my beautiful baby girl is 8. These eight years have just flown by, and my eldest has ensured that I have loved it all. From baby to toddler to pre-schooler to school girl, Boo has delighted in everything around her. She misses nothing, is freakishly observant, and absorbs all …

Reflecting On 8 Years of Being a SAHM

OK, so strictly speaking I suppose I am a WAHM, but the reason I’m at home and gave up my old career is to be home with the kids, so I pop myself into the SAHM category first. My Little Man has now started school and September also happens to …

Exciting New Look for Letts Key Stage 2 Revision Success

My children are both in primary school now, so of course, those SATs tests do lurk around corners for them. Boo completed her KS1 SATs in May and remains unaware that she did so. Her school handled them really well, with no stress or pressure put on any of the …

At Last I Have Actual Photos!

I take a lot of photos. I suspect we all do these days. But how many of us then have actual printed photos? We seem to be living in an age where we take more photos than we ever have, but then have fewer photos printed and in photo albums …

Little Man is a Schoolboy

Little Man is now a schoolboy. How did that happen?! He started school a couple of days ago, and is just going in for the afternoons this week. He will be there full time from Monday. I really wasn’t sure how he would get on, as he struggled to settle …

Little Man is 5 Today!
