Library Visit

We love going to our local library in this house, we tend to go every Tuesday afternoon on the way back from picking Maisy up from nursery. When people think library they think just reading a couple of books and then heading home but my library (Hamworthy, Poole) is excellent for children it has a big kids section loads of bean bags and bits for them to jump about on, a dressing up section so they can really get into story time dressing up as their favourite characters, puzzles, colouring and its all brightly coloured even the book cases are actually tunnels… View Post

To share or not?

Sharing is a constant battle in my house, the two older girls are at the stage where they just want what ever the other has just for the fact they have it. So they’ll kick, scream have a massive tantrum until they get it and then they will have a look as it for about two minutes until they discard it when they have realised it was really just a spoon.I hear my self repeatedly pleading “just share nicely please!” But I can see it from their point of view as well I’m the first to admit I don’t always want to share.… View Post

My Top Baby Buys

So you’re pregnant trying to find the bits you need for you’re new arrival different brands claiming to do all sorts.

I often find a recipe start by following it to the letter then get abit bored and do my own thing, this does not always have a good outcome. But the kids love it so we try and this week we made some brownies for the first time.  chocolate brownies  I know they don’t look all that great but presentation has never been my strong point trust me they taste sooooo much better than they look. So good… View Post

Sensory Play

  Yesterday afternoon me and Bella found ourselves with nothing to do, a rare moment when we were both feeling a little bit bored. We’d just dropped Maisy at nursery, Lottie was asleep and daddy was at work so we had no one to entertain us.   I had a rummage though the arts and crafts box which is a cardboard box on top of the fridge that currently consists of some dried out glue, paper plates and 3 pipe cleaners. Note to self – must stock up on some crafty bits. I know some crafty people could probably create something fantastic with this but I am… View Post
