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
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?
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
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. Now available in three different languages, it is beginning to change bedtime routines the world over.

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.
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.
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
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!! Continue reading Flying Owls at Lavenham Falconry
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.
For me the new year wasn’t about resolutions but I did spend the majority of January learning some new skills. I took a Coding for Beginners Course with New Skills Academy.
It took me ages to choose which course to go for, did I go for a WordPress course, that would have been really useful for me and my blog. Did I learn something entirely new? Dog Walking, Payroll or Floristry. With over 200 courses to choose from it wasn’t easy for me but I settled with coding for a few reasons. Continue reading New Skills in Your Time
