    I’m a Dora and Friends...

    I must be a glutton for punishment as I will be once again opening up our house to half a dozen preschoolers in order to host another twitter party next month!

    A buccaneering pirate party

    We started our recent holiday with a weekend with my sister Jennie & her family, beginning with my niece Izzy’s 4th birthday party. We had a great time and all the kids looked super cute dressed up as pirates. Lydia especially looked pretty adorable as a mini pirate; she just - Keep reading...

    Lydia’s “Bed! Bed! Bed!”

    About half a dozen or so times throughout the last few weeks, Lydia has climbed out of her cot. This would be after removing her sleeping bag – having worked out the only style we could find that she couldn’t remove herself… until now. Once or twice, - Keep reading...

    #ShoesieTuesday with Hotter

    This time last week I was nibbling delicious canap├ęs, sipping prosecco, and falling in love with a pair of shoes. Well, I tell a lie... not just one pair, but a whole shop full.

    Review: Ravensburger Happy Days...

    One of my most enjoyable hobbies is jigsaw puzzles. In this modern world I quite often do jigsaws on my iPad but this is something that technology just can't ever replicate well enough for me. A well made jigsaw is a true delight - Keep reading...
