My eldest is a chewer. The psychology teacher is me believes this is because he got stuck at the oral stage in his infancy, the parent in me thinks this is because he wants to drive me over the edge! Whatever the reason, he chews and for those that don’t know my eldest isn’t 3 he is in fact 8 but like I said he still chews.   He chews the necklines on his jumpers, […]

Whether it was an hour long lesson in 6th form psychology or a fleeting reference in a horror film when giving a character assassination of the serial killer, it’s a debate that will out live all of us.

What do kids need for school?

The boys, like most other children in the country, go back to school in a couple of weeks, which means right now I am doing the ever crazy back to school shop.

August 11, 2018 admin 0

One of the biggest perks of being a blogger is the opportunity to try new products and visit new places that we might not otherwise experience. These opportunities have opened my eyes to so many new companies and more importantly they have educated me on the way products are made and the ingredients that are used and it has definitely made me think about the products we then go on to buy as a family. […]
