Tips to save money this Christmas

Love it or loath it Christmas is just around the corner and now is the time to start thinking about what you are going to be buying this year! I am totally guilty of being the one rushing about a week before Christmas buying gifts and staying up until midnight Christmas Eve frantically wrapping. However 2017 is the year of the calm Christmas I am stepping up my game, getting organised and hoping to spend less than I usually do. I thought I would share with you some tips I have picked up (and am trying to implement) to achieve just…

Reading with children – Ebookadabra App Review

Reading with my children has always been something that I have loved to do. From small babies we would look at books and read nursery rhymes daily, they enjoyed it and it was a great opportunity to bond.

Lottie looks like she’s crying here but I can…

I used to have to nip to the local library for books on school topics but the answers for them are a mere google on the tablet away. The internet has brought…

Beach Babes What Ever The Weather

Spending long summer days at the beach are part and parcel of life living the Dorset. With all that gorgeous coast on our doorstep it would be almost inhuman not to make the most of it. Unfortunately this is England and those ‘long summer days’ I mention are often few and far between. What do we do? We hit the beach anyway! It may be grey, a little wet and incredibly windy but it’s nothing a decent coat can’t see off! The girls were recently gifted these lovely little rain coats from Trespass; I love red on them and this little…
