As Big L is now coming to the end of year 2 I am fairly well-versed in lost property! We have got through several ties, jumpers, water bottles. You name it at some point we have had to replace it! I was really happy when Stikets asked me to review their name labels. When he first started at pre-school I had grand ideas about the fabric name labels like the ones I had when I was a kid. I bought some and (my mum) sewed them in to his coat etc. Only for them to fray very shortly afterwards. I got fed up and resortedRead More →

We have never really been a family for displaying photographs. Which is a shame because our children are, quite frankly, beautiful. Biased? No, not at all!

Jigsaws and games are fab for this time of year. The dark evenings and dreary days can mean a lot more mooching about at home and a lot more cries of “I’m boooored!” – and that’s just from me (hahaha). Ravensburger are one of the best known toy companies when it comes to jigsaws and their What IF? range are a fabulous mixture of a jigsaw puzzle AND a game in that the picture you have to make isn’t actually on the box – you are given clues to solve what you should be making!
