Tissue paper stained glass windows

Yesterday was just one of those days the kids were up at 5, yes 5am! so I woke up in a grump, by about 7 they realised it wasn’t the bet idea they’ve ever had and were knackered (very grumpy household). After and hour or two of them whining and fighting over just about everything and anything they could, I needed to think of something quick and easy to entertain them while I sorted Lottie out. Preferably something that didn’t involve too much mess Arts and crafts can often bring me out in a cold sweat but I’d seen this on… View Post

Reading cleansing water I thought am i just being conned out of a fiver for a bottle of water? probably.  What is micellar? I don’t no but it… View Post

Until of course I’m up an then about half 6-7 they’ll have an hours nap. Then once up I have to watch 3 of the most anoying things I have ever had to deal with – no not the children, but… View Post

Farmer Palmers

Its been a lovely sunny day down here so we headed off to farmer palmers for some fun this afternoon, Farmer Palmers is a great farm park in Poole, Dorset. Its full of fun things to do for kids of all ages we’ve been a fair few times now and my girls still love it and get so excited when we go, this afternoon was no exception. With a long list of activities going on everyday including meet and hold a guinea pig, pony grooming, bottle/hand feeding lambs, cow milking demonstrations and tractor rides there’s so much to do, I would advise to go for a… View Post
