Wow, its been a long time since my last post again. Honestly I have just been so busy/ miserable/ lost for words that I couldn't even bring myself to get started. Oh how I had been looking forward to the summer break, not because I am a saintly mother who desperately misses her kids during … Continue reading I’m Baaaack, and so is school!
Well here we are rocking (literally in a corner with a glass of vino!) into the 1st week back of a new school term and so far its crippling me!

That Is The Question

Recently I had to fill out a form (yep another one) about Ethan's likes/ dislikes etc. One of the questions was about the things he likes to play with and that took me a little while to complete to be honest. He does sort of play with toys but they are usually random things that … Continue reading Duplo and Fiddly bits!
This morning was our schools Harvest celebration which strangely now involves a cash charity donation rather than a tin of out of date soup or two which is a real shame as I have been saving this bad boy for just such an occasion! Does anyone really eat this stuff? Anyway, as with any large … Continue reading Sequins And Harvest Festival
