Last Friday, Little Bean was presented with her Bronze Certificate at school or good behaviour and hard work. At school the children are presented with House Points when they behave particularly well or make good . . . → Read More: Hard work pays off . . .
I know, I’m a bit late with this post. To be honest, I’m not sure where the week has gone, it’s been a blur of tissues, hot lemon and snuggles on the sofa. The whole family has been full of cold and coughs, it has just flown by. Tonight I was looking back through . . . → Read More: Remembrance Day 2013
The tale of my fussyeater continues but every now and then we make a tiny bit of headway with her. A short while ago I wrote this post about the new troubles facing me with school lunches and sadly that hasn’t got any better. Our only option for Little Bean’s school lunch if she can’t . . . → Read More: A tiny bit of headway with my fussy eater

But today, they don’t look like this, they look heavy-eyed, a bit pale and they have very snotty noses, a horrible cough and a raging temperature. For the last week or so I have been struggling with a horrid cold and now it . . . → Read More: Poorly boys and early mornings
School pick-up is probably one of those ‘ordinary’ moments in a day that I have mixed emotions about. Little Bean has just started in Year 1 at Primary School, some days it feels like she has been going to school forever and others it feels like she has only been there for a . . . → Read More: Do you look forward to school pickup or dread it?
When the children started back to school we thought our summer trips were finished for this year but then I received an email inviting us to join the lovely folks at Vosene for breakfast at the Rainforest Cafe in London. We were excited by the idea of it, we have always fancied going to . . . → Read More: Family Fun in London – thank you Vosene!
Since I wrote this post last week about the new challenge facing me with Little Bean’s fussy eating, my mind has been whirring with ideas to find ways of getting some extra goodness into what Little Bean will eat. I have read some great posts on Capture By Lucy on Bento Lunch Boxes which I . . . → Read More: Can a bread maker help my fussy eater?
Yesterday we had a really fun day out and it was mainly just the girls (Jelly Bean gatecrashed) as we went to the Big Fairy Picnic in the Park at Burghley House. The Big Fairy Picnic is a fundraising event for the charity Anna’s Hope. Anna’s Hope was inspired by Anna Hughes who died . . . → Read More: Anna’s Hope – Big Fairy Picnic in the Park
