A Fun Free Activity This Summer

I have felt so much guilt in the leading up to this school holiday. P1 was offered another place in the holiday school. We always sign her up even though it is not compulsory. It benefits her hugely by receiving extra lessons, extra fun and chances to see her friends and even make new ones that she wouldn’t necessarily talk …

Sands Alive Cake Shop Review

I am going to say it out right, right now! I nearly turned this product down to review.

“pretty much shoved her in the car”

Following on from a pretty tough night, P2 had a pretty amazing Sunday. I felt a need to have a break from her and pretty much shoved her in the car with my Mum & SD when they went to Camber to collect my brother. I felt majorly guilty but my OH was off to the gym so that would …
