Phoebe in blue
It's been a busy couple of weeks here as Olympic fever has taken hold of my six year old. This means I've learnt more about the history of the Olympics and watched more sports over the past two weeks than I've probably done in my entire life! Finding time t...

An autumnal umbrella
Following on from the Daddy Umbrella , I found myself with extra umbrellas just waiting for someone to decorate them. In the meantime, M and I are doing a project on trees so I thought we should attempt a craft involving leaves. Painting by taking prints fr...

The NORAD Tracks Santa site is a well known diversion for today, but we've found the games and activities are not so good for younger children, so I thought I'd share the Google Santa Tracker... The Santa Village has lots of games and activities for small people to investigate.
Use Google Santa Tracker to follow Santa Claus on Google Maps as he makes his journey around the world.

Coventry SkyRide
Today was the event we've been preparing for over the past month, The Coventry SkyRide. Dave cycles on a daily basis, but while I used to cycle to work a few times a week, I haven't done so in a LONG time. M has never ridden a bike, or rather she hadn't don...

The scrapping of the Human Rights Act, though a pledge in the Tory manifesto is a measure few are aware of and even less understand the implications. The scrapping of the act is part of the prime minister’s plans for the first 100 days, when the Queen’s speech is delivered on 27 May. The Human Rights Act reinforces the European Convention on Human Rights, which was signed in 1950 to prevent the horrors of the Second World War ever happening aga...
