This year we were invited to take part in the Christmas Blog Hop with Balsam Hill so my festive spirit has arrived early! The 1st December arrived and I felt quite excited about Christmas.

Numbugz – A Fun Way To Practice Maths

  • November 24, 2017

Little H is now in Year 2 and the work is getting noticeably harder, especially the maths. She’s quite good at maths when she puts her mind to it but it does take a bit of explaining sometimes. I very was interested to try out a new travel game from Plyt called NumBugz. As the name suggests it’s all based around numbers and I’d much prefer to play games as a >>

Staying Safe And Seen With Reflective Accessories From Pogu

  • October 10, 2017

That’s it, the darker evenings and mornings are well on their way. It’s all downhill from now on! Walking anywhere near roads with kids is frightening enough as it is, even more so when the days are getting shorter. I’m not really out with Little H much after dark, but on the days she has after school club until almost 6 pm it can be very dark as we get nearer the >>

I do buy myself a bunch of supermarket flowers every so often as I always think having flowers in the house makes such a difference.
