My Sunday Photo 2018 – Daffodil Season

I walk to school or nursery every single day at least once, usually three times, and it’s a great way for me to start taking in my local area and noticing habits. Suddenly over the past week I have started to see shoots of little flowers emerging from their beds. For me, it’s a sign that Spring and warmer, longer …

A few days ago my girls were really lucky to receive three Willow & Wild Box‘s in the post, each personalised with their names. I was really shocked to find that a gardening subscription box could fit through the letter box but they did! One of our focuses for 2018 is to get our garden usable and family friendly, so …

Why You Need A World Map In Your Home

When we moved house there was one room I was most excited about. Our dining room. We had never had a proper place for us to sit and have our meals, a table to craft at and bake cakes. I honestly haven’t got the words to explain my need for a dining room and my excitement.  Weirdly enough this is …

Now that the Christmas and New Year excitements are over, it’s time to settle into a little bit of a routine again.

I recently was made aware that Crayola are now producing games and this completely excited me as I’ve been trying to gather a bigger collection of board …

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 …

Jungle Craft #BostikBloggers

Normally when my Bostik box arrives I plan an activity for the kids to create so that it’s more adult led and they can focus a bit better. But this time I handed over the reigns to my seven year old. Getting crafty keeps her calm when she’s having a bit of a bad behaviour day. I think it helps …

This months theme is definitely appropriate. The weather is finally feeling warmer and brighter which generally makes things feel happier for me.

Last Minute Easter Craft Idea

I don’t know what it’s like where you are but the weather has been very unpredictable here. We have also been struggling with no car to get around. So I thought I’d share a very simple craft idea that you can do with your children when the weather is bad or you’re having a day at home. What You Will …

What’s In Our Easter Basket?

Being a parent blogger where you are in a community of inspiring people it’s hard not to get excited when it comes to big events in the year. Over the past three years I have seen a new tradition of hampers or baskets being created around Christmas, Valentine’s, Easter and Halloween and each time I have good intentions to join …

Dragon Craft Idea For Kids #BostikBlogger

This month’s theme for the #BostikBlogger campaign was Dragons. My girls seem obsessed with dragons and dinosaurs at the moment so this was quite an exciting project for them. I decided to give them some helpful tips but to pretty much allow them to make it by themselves. So here we have a dragon craft idea for kids. A friendly …

“I don’t think I’ve felt true boredom for a long time”

Since the new year I have felt quite refreshed. My emails have been quiet, I’ve been writing and scheduling posts for days in advance, the house is relatively tidy with clothes washing up to date and put away. But the evening telly has been pretty rubbish and limited which has left me feeling rather bored. I don’t think I’ve felt …

How To Make An Angel Outfit From A Pillowcase

When I googled how to make P2s nativity costume I was surprised to actually be stuck for finding any tutorials. It was probably the places I was looking or I’m just a blind bat, but I took Pinterest photos for inspiration and made it up as I went along. I am actually so pleased with the result, she’s an Angel …

Teaching My Daughter About Money With thinkmoney

We were recently challenged by thinkmoney to decorate a piggy bank but to also think about what financial advice we want our girls to carry with them until they’re older. I was certainly never good with money and spent my very early “grown up” life in debt and borrowing money from my Grandad constantly. Meeting my hubby changed things, he …
