Keeping children safe online

To think when I was the same age as my daughters I had never used the internet! It was when I was in one of my final years at primary school that our classroom got one computer! It was a huge thing with terrible graphics but it was so exciting. Now my daughters have all the latest tech readily available to them at home and school, it’s brilliant. 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.

Our Summer Holiday Highlights

Today my girls have returned to school! The first school run back is always interesting isn’t it. I felt as though I had completely forgotten the protocol and what times they were all meant to be arriving. However we got through it, everyone was on time with matching shoes so that’s a win in my book. That was until I got back to my car and saw a lovely flat tyre waiting for me. REALLY! A flat on the first day of school, as I sat waiting for the RAC to save the day and deliberating what I must have…
