To My Son on Your Fifth Birthday

I cannot believe that tomorrow is your birthday and you will be five years old, this year has flown by and we have done so much. Spending your fourth birthday at Chessington still seems like a recent memory, but it was a year ago, a whole year. How?

New School Musings

I’ll be up front with you, I don’t know where I’m going with this, but I feel the need to write about how L’s first experience of school was for both of us. So if you don’t want to read a long ramble with no discernible outcome I’d just move on, I wouldn’t blame you.  Continue reading New School Musings

Is it OK to fake it?

Husband says no, but I think it’s a lot better. It’s been something I’ve been thinking about for a bit and I know a friend who has done the same. So what is your opinion? Is it ok to have artificial grass? Continue reading Is it OK to fake it?

Inateck Laptop Backpack – Review

I was recently contacted by Inateck to see if I would like to review one of their products. I chose the Laptop Backpack and I am impressed. So impressed actually.

Never before has a backpack entered this house and caused us to squabble over who could have it. We’ve had some really nice backpacks before but this Inateck product has raised the bar significantly.  Continue reading Inateck Laptop Backpack – Review

The Children’s Meditations in My Heart – Review and Competition

FROM ‘Hygge’ to parenting, the Danish way of doing things is often widely talked about and one of Denmark’s latest exports is no exception. “The Children’s Meditations In my Heart” by emerging Danish author Gitte Winter Graugaard enables children to fall asleep within minutes.

Our Day at The Spring Fling 2018

A few weeks ago I was wasting time on Facebook, as you do, when I saw an advert for The Spring Fling. It immediately appealed to me as it involved tractors, the emergency services and animals, all of L’s favourite things. When I looked into it a bit further I saw the tickets were only £9.50 each and included lunch. I was sold.

Our New House Sign

When we moved into our house many years ago there were several things I wanted to sort out. The house sign being one of them. A solar powered affair, with flowers and the house number. Too small to see from the road and not to our tastes at all.

This is the front of our house from the road, we’ve got quite the driveway and you cannot see what the house number is

Easy2Name Labels – Review

It doesn’t matter how hard I try, I cannot ignore the fact L will be starting schools this year. It’s only a couple of weeks until we find out if he got a place at the school in our village. But whilst September may be a lifetime away for him, it’s really not for me and I should start to get organised. Step one – Labels. Clothes, shoes, stationery and bags, you name it’ll need labelling and that’s where Easy2Name Labels comes in.  Continue reading Easy2Name Labels – Review

Flying Owls at Lavenham Falconry

I love owls. Always have done. So when Husb got me an owl experience from Lavenham Falconry for our wedding anniversary last year I was thrilled. I can’t believe I’ve only just found a second o write about it. Oh and I’m going to apologise now for all the photos, there are a lot and I narrowed down my selection!!Lavenham Falconry Continue reading Flying Owls at Lavenham Falconry

Buddhify – Review

You may remember I recently wrote about some fitness apps that I loved, but that I had some reservations about my meditation app, Calm, as they had removed a lot of my favourite meditations and the subscription fee was just too high. Well just after I wrote that, buddhify got in touch to see if I would like to review their app.
