Here’s where you’ll find posts for what the kids did… playing, wearing, doing, and more!

Half term fun with Debenhams Toy Dept!

My kids were the lucky recipients of some new toys from Debenhams, timed very nicely for the last couple of days of the half term break down here in the south, when I was running out of things to entertain them with (I think I have RSI from stirring so many bowls of slime) and then came down with a…

If you’ve got small kids then you’ll probably be aware of PAW Patrol, and will also be relieved to hear that there are a whole load of new Mission PAW episodes out on Nick Jnr, hurrah! My kids can watch the same thing over and over again but I like a bit of variety! To help them celebrate the new…

What the kids wore: Lamb & Bear

Athena wears her uniform (or PJ’s!) five full days a week. She’s like me and is a fan of comfort so as soon as she arrives home she heads off to take her ‘unicorn’ off and gets into PJs. This means that her time in her own clothes is restricted to the weekends and holidays, which makes washing easier for…

His Illustrated Encyclopedia that has just launched is just perfect for kids with a huge thirst for knowledge that are always asking questions! It’s a hard backed book packed full of facts, figures and most importantly illustrations in his signature style, with a retro feel as…
