Communicating with your child’s school

“How was school?” I ask. “Fine” Reply the girls in unison. “Oh good, what did you get up to?” “Nothing.” The end. Does this sound familiar? A recent survey found 93% of parents would like to know more about what happens in their children’s classroom. I used to love hearing updates from the girls about school but as I’m sure you all know it can be like getting blood from a stone at times. I miss the days when they’d come out with a daily report from nursery telling me exactly what they’d done, eaten etc. When children start at primary…

Lottie You Are FIVE!

I started this blog back in 2014. Lottie was just 4 months old and after 3 years of being a stay at home mum to my three I just felt as though I needed something for myself..

We celebrated with a little party on Sunday at Lemur Landings (soft play) it was fantastic everything was taken care of for me and Lottie just went off and had the best time with her…

Beach Walks In January

My head is definitely still in a bit of a holiday mode! However after a shaky start i.e 1 lost tie and 1 soaking wet PE kit we are back! 2019 is here and I am actually already so excited about what this year will hold for me and my little family. 2018 wasn’t the best year for me, it had some…

Goodbye 2018..

There is one word that stands out most when it comes to describing 2018.. Change. 2018 was a year full of changes for us; I went back to full time work and there were plenty of bumps along the way as we adjusted to a completely new routine. I know to some it doesn’t seem like a big deal but after being a stay at home mum of three for 7 years it was HUGE. The girls adjusted to longer hours at school and nursery like pro’s and I adjusted to juggling a thousand plates. I have a completely new…
