There is something about a child wearing a fluffy jumper that I love. All the younger kids own them and it is like hugging a teddy bear when they are wearing them, so when I was offered the Joules Reversible Jumper from House of Fraser to review I just had to say yes! Reversible jumpers have changed somewhat since the awful bulky number I had as a child in the 80’s. This boys’ striped fleece has a reversible design meaning… Continue Reading "Joul...

Should Your Children Be Dressing Themselves?

If you’ve ever picked your child up from school and noticed that they’re wearing their shirt inside out after a PE lesson, perhaps you’ll have thought they’re not ready to be responsible for dressing themselves. But, sticking-out labels aside, there’s a…
If you’ve ever picked your child up from school and noticed that they’re wearing their shirt inside out after a PE lesson, perhaps you’ll have thought they’re not ready to be responsible for dressing themselves. But, sticking-out labels aside, there’s a good argument for letting children dress themselves… particularly if they’ve been showing signs of wanting to have more control over what they’re wearing! For example, allowing children to dress t...

The kids have been back at school all of two weeks and already we have had the letter home that every parent dreads……….. There have been head lice in a class at school. Head lice are tiny insects that live in hair and nits are the empty egg cases attached to hair that head lice hatch from. Head lice are a common problem, particularly in school children aged 4-11 and I have lost count of the times I have treated my children for the… Continue Readi...

When I had my first daughter, Abbey, 23 years ago, they were not allowed to tell you the sex of the baby at the scan, so I had a lovely surprise when she arrived. When I had Callan, four years later, I new he was going to be a boy as I had to have an amniocentesis to check that he didn’t have Down Syndrome as I has been given a blood test that gave me a higher than average… Continue Reading "Choosing the Perfect Baby Shower Invitations for Girls"

When I was at school I found sex education excruciatingly painful. Sitting in a classroom with teenage boys and girls as a ‘late bloomer’ I was not only painfully shy but bewildered about some of the subjects that were talking about.

By the fourth week in January, most New Year’s resolutions have gone out of the window as the depressing reality of a long cold spell until summer arrives. Good job then, that PizzaExpress has launched a range of comforting and warming dishes, that you may well recognise from menus past, as well as exciting cocktails from January 3rd to get us through the season. The ‘new’ additions to the menu have all featured on the menu previously, but are ma...
