    October Half Term 2013 – Wednesday

    Last night we received a message from Karin to say that Ella had fallen down the stairs and had broken her arm. When I told Little Bean this morning she said straight away that she wanted to do a picture for her friend. She made this picture as well as some cute foam daffodils and […]

    October Half Term 2013 – Monday

    Today has been pretty much all about me and Little Bean spending time together. Beanie Boy was at pre-school and Jelly Bean has been catching up on sleep and crawling around our feet. Whilst it was ‘just us girls’ when Jelly Bean was sleeping we decided to do a spot of baking and trying out […]

    Summer Holidays – Day 6

    Summer Holidays 2013 – Day 5

    At the moment our mornings are quite relaxing, I don’t have to get Little Bean to playscheme until 9.30am so I’m actually getting there on time BEFORE the school gates open. Now why can’t school start at 9.30am too, I work so much better for having that little extra time in the morning!! Perhaps I […]
