What unprecedented weather we are having this year! I have no idea if it is simply coincidental or if the changes forced upon the world by lockdown have had some sort of impact on our weather but I am certainty not complaining and I am most definitely trying to make the most of all this sunshine whilst it lasts. One of the ways we have been enjoying the sun is by playing in the paddling […]

What to buy Dad this Father’s Day

June 2, 2020 admin 0

Well isn’t this just  the most bizarre Father’s day we could be having in the UK, a lockdown celebration like no other and one that brings with it lots of questions such as what to buy? And how to celebrate? This year a voucher for a beer tasting evening or tickets to a football match simply wont do, nor can you celebrate with a big family meal at your dads favourite restaurant, unless of course […]

Everything you need to start weaning your baby

May 8, 2020 admin 2

This week is national weaning week (4th May – 8th May) and it just so happens to fall the week before Layla turns six months old which is when we plan to start our very own weaning journey.

One of […]

How to teach science with John Adams

April 29, 2020 admin 0

Lock down has turned most parents into stop gap teachers, myself included, with some subjects being easier to navigate than others. For me science is a tricky one, it’s not my strong point and I struggle to make it fun without the help of pre planned lessons, equipment or games, so when John Adams offered to send me two science kits I was more than grateful as it meant I could take a break from […]

Lock down is tough. Home schooling is even tougher. But I am forever grateful that during this time we have both a garden and a village that we can use during the day for exercise and I really feel for those that have limited outdoor space they can’t easily access at the moment.  I am feeling even more grateful for the work opportunities that I am still getting, including  the one we have been working […]

If there has ever been an ideal time to binge watch great box sets on Netflix without feeling guilty then the 2020 lock down has got to be it.
