Kids love Lego, so why not let them have fun, and learn at the same time!
Whew!  How is life in your home?  Things have been very hectic here the past two months, and I thought this week would be slow – but how wrong I was!  The calendar is filled with appointments, meetings and events.  So maybe NEXT WEEK things will be ‘normal’ again….

Everyone from young to old enjoy Fifteens in Northern Ireland, and I'm sure you will, too!
Fifteens are a Northern Irish treat that goes well with a cup of tea. Just the perfect blend of ingredients, .with a little hit of cherry. Perfect with tea
