With cousins and younger friends visiting it’s nice to have some toys in the house that everyone can play with. Something not too young for L, but fun and safe enough for our younger guests too.
The new range of GOULA wooden toys from Jumbo Games fit the bill perfectly. Aimed at preschoolers they are still of interest to L and allow him to ‘teach’ his friends how to play and everyone is happy and occupied.
All summer long we had builders in working on our extension. Mostly the weather was great so we were just chilling out in the garden, or we had days out planned. When we were tired we still had an internet connection so we could watch Netflix in the conservatory. It genuinely wasn’t too bad.
However, some days we were home, the weather was rubbish and on many of those days we had no internet as, on occasion, it had to be unplugged so things could be built. Those days were long. So freaking long.
Head lice are a normal part of childhood and most parents have the task of eradicating lice in their family on at least one occasion. Whilst you may think you’ve become a dab hand at lice busting, can you answer the below questions correctly? Head lice expert, Ian Burgess, is here to help.
I don’t know about you but as soon as the word homework is mentioned my kid just switches off. t can be hard to get them on board with completing more work when they have got home from a day of doing work at school. Understandably so and quite honestly I’m not sure how I feel about what is expected of my Year 1 child to complete after school, so we are finding fun ways to get round it. Poio is one of those fun things.
You may remember a couple of weeks ago I shared that intu Chapelfield would be hosting some rather large bugs in the centre for a fun and interactive tour. Well we went and enjoyed a sneak peak of the tour on the opening morning so I thought I’d share it with you.
For my birthday a couple of years ago I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.
I’ve had a great week. Me and the child have had so much fun. The building work is coming along. I’ve caught up with friends and generally just had a blast.
The summer holidays are nearly over, I can’t quite believe how fast they’ve gone. With two weeks left until he’s back to school, well two weeks and a day, it really is time to get organised.
Now I’m guessing everyone has got uniform, shoes, labels and stationery etc. sorted. So I feel no need to talk about them, instead I’m going to talk about the things you really need but may have overlooked.
