I’m not sure when it happened, but at some point Christmas has become an organisational nightmare. With childcare to arrange, gifts to source and wrap, food to buy, relatives to see, posting dates, charity jumper days, school fayres and plays plus a million other little things to get done, a to do list just doesn’t cut it.Continue reading Manuscript Pens – Review

As you may or may not know, next week is National Stationery Week. The guys over at Stabilo believe that stationery matters and so do I. They aren’t just making functional and practical items, it’s so much more than that.
To me stationery is a bit of an obsession. I love it. As well as needing it for everyday and mundane tasks, I need it for my own peace of mind. To find my inner calm and sanity.

These happen to be few and far between though. In fact there is only one that is guaranteed to work. Continue reading Colouring to Keep my Toddler Happy
