Did you know that our skin is the largest organ of our body? Did you know that the hair on our head is there to act as a coolant and insulator but also to protect us from the sun’s UV rays? This week our skin has been enjoying lapping up some Vitamin D from the sun that has been shining …

Sports Craft #BostikBloggers

Life has been pretty hectic the past few weeks. What with all the walking we’ve been doing due to car issues, constant child demands and being vitamin D lacking, I have just been completely exhausted. So when the Bostik box arrived this month I was rather excited to be able to let the girls craft away on their own. As …

Dear Diary, I have grown to know that our eldest needs previous planning for whatever she does. Whether that be something very small like her next meal, or something big like a trip out. We are in the very first few days of the summer holidays and I’ve mentally prepared myself for mayhem in the first week or so as …

It’s been about a month since I posted a My Sunday Photo. Life has been so incredibly busy and I’ve felt a bit guilty for not actually posting because that was the whole point of taking part. But with not having a car, feeling utterly exhausted for the majority of every day, I just had no motivation to sit and …

P1s Sports Day 2016

I can’t believe that it’s the end of P1s journey as a Key Stage 1 student. She attends a Primary School but when I was her age this would have been her last year in the Infants. In just over six weeks time she’ll be entering the Juniors phase and things are going to get tougher. I always find it amusing …

#WhatsYourX – Sony Xperia X Mobile Phone Review

I remember a time when for me, my mobile phone was my statement accessory. During secondary school if you still had a block like phone when the latest one was a flip, then you were classed as a bit of a weirdo. I don’t know what secondary school life is like nowadays but for me personally, I’m not overly bothered …

Reflecting On A Year Of Nursery

It’s that time of the year when suddenly we realise there’s just a few weeks or even days left of the schooling year. It terrifies me every year but for some reason I’m feeling a lot more sentimental this time round as we wave goodbye to P2s very first year of nursery. I love her nursery and the setting has …

Trutex School Uniform Review

One thing we have noticed about P1s personality and possibly due to autism, is that she finds clothing extremely uncomfortable and especially school uniform. Because let’s face it, who ever felt comfortable wearing their uniform?! Now this is thinking quite far in advance really but we were sent some Trutex school wear to review and you can find your local …

Teacher Gifts With Mantra Jewellery

To be honest I am quite glad to see the back of this school year. I really don’t know why but I feel like we need a fresh start in the motivational department. We most certainly need a break from early rushed mornings too. I’ve had various emails from the class reps about donations and cards for the teachers from …

Earning Her Brownie Hostess Badge

P1 has been a Brownie for four months now. I’ve been pretty sceptical about how long she’d stick mat it because I wasn’t a Girl Guide for long myself. However, she is thoroughly enjoying every meet they have and attends weekly. Being a Brownie is about exploring new hobbies, learning new skills and making new friends and I really think …
