Hello autumnal weather. Sporadic down pours of rain and darkened days at home. My girls are struggling with the adjustments to staying indoors a little more.

Princess Polly’s Potty – A Book To Help Potty Training

We have been potty training P3 for about five months now. She’s been doing really well but it’s definitely been a slower progress than her big sisters.

Colouring Fun With BIC Kids

Art was my favourite subject as a child. I would spend so much time doodling drawings and creating stories with my artwork. I probably went through a lot of art materials and have tried out many different varieties. Thankfully my girls are following in my footsteps of creativity. They love to sit and draw. It sounds a little silly but …
