Clearly that was to prepare us for the past two nights!!This beautiful little lady has clearly forgotten how to stay asleep! For two nights I’ve seen every single hour of the night …

“The frustrating and daunting decision has come to say goodbye”

Ruta Ett DVD AB Heroes Of The City Review & Competition

There’s a lot of speculation around technology and children. I have mixed emotions. I would never plonk the kids in front of The Walking Dead but I don’t see the harm in programmes like good old Mr Tumble. Educational programmes and apps, in my opinion, are fantastic!!!   We’ve been trying out a new app made by Ruta Ett DVD …

“Today topped it off when the school received their Ofsted report”

We’ve put the icing on top of a cake that’s slowly been created. Sorry, this post isn’t about yummy treats, it’s about P1s education. We uprooted our family to Sevenoaks nearly 5 months ago to start a complete fresh and better life. The schools are better, the lifestyle is better and the people are nicer. If you’re a loyal reader …

I am suffering from a cold which is why I tried to keep myself separate from all the other bloggers. I am quite shy in general especially as this was only my …
