Everyday Us: It’s five O’clock in the morning…

No, not that Lily Allen song but the time Arlo wakes up. Why five am? Who knows? We’ve tried changing various things, putting the heating on lower, higher, earlier, later, going to bed later, earlier, bigger dinner, less drink… nothing changes.

Gift Guide: Inspirational Books for Kids

I love reading books to the kids, and Athena is now starting to try to read books herself- she’s definitely way more interested in the actual story-line these days rather than just looking at the pictures. I’ve put together a bumper selection of amazing books you can add to your kid’s Christmas lists, each one is either inspirational, a bit educational or just really special. Books that you’ll enjoy reading too hopefully! First up is…

Living DNA – Exploring my Ancestry

Here’s a conversation I had with Athena a couple of weeks ago… “Mummy why do some other people talk in a different way to us?” “Because they come from a different country, or their parents do and they want to make sure their kids carry on speaking in their own language as well as English.” “Oh, but where are WE from?” Good question kiddo, good question. I am British, there are no two ways about…
