Roald Dahl Day 2018

When asked to think about the most popular and best-loved children's authors, three names come to mind: Enid Blyton, J.K. Rowling and Roald Dahl. Speak to anyone about children's books and I am confident that all of them will be familiar with a Roald Dahl story, whether that's the original source material or a film… Continue reading Roald Dahl Day 2018

What Jenson has been reading lately #3

I've spent the last three years listening to people tell me how much Jenson looks like his dad. Don't get me wrong, it's cute and all, but I really relish the moments when I see how much he gets from me. Like, the kid can not get enough cheese, just like his mumma (and her… Continue reading What Jenson has been reading lately #3

Jenson: 37 months old

I wasn't sure if I was going to continue with monthly updates once Jenson turned three but we'll see how things pan out over the next couple of months. I may feature him more in my Friday Favourites or I might just do updates for his birthdays. I'm constantly debating with myself over how much… Continue reading Jenson: 37 months old

What Jenson has been reading lately #2

Jenson is a massive bookworm and it's hardly surprising, given that one of my favourite pastimes as a kid was going to the library and taking out the maximum amount of books. It doesn't bother me that the TV is nearly always on when we're at home and he knows how to use my smartphone… Continue reading What Jenson has been reading lately #2

Jenson’s third birthday party with Jump with Jo

We nearly ended up cancelling Jenson's birthday party with hours to spare this year due to a slapped cheek false alarm. Fortunately we were able to go ahead and Jenson had a great time. We booked Jump with Jo*, a local business offering soft play sessions and parties and invited a few of Jenson's friends.… Continue reading Jenson’s third birthday party with Jump with Jo

Personalised alphabet poster from Wonderbly

Growing up I had a personalised story book and it was/is the coolest thing. It featured my family and friends as characters - even little ol' me! So when Wonderbly released My Golden Ticket last year I had to get my hands on a copy and write myself and Jenson into the story. They have… Continue reading Personalised alphabet poster from Wonderbly

Some thoughts on parenting for Mothers Day

Parenting. It's a full-time job (make that 24/7) and sometimes it can feel like there are no benefits. No financial pay. No annual leave. No sick leave. When you become a parent you can expect to have no more days off and you don't have the 'luxury' of being ill. Nappies still need changing, laundry… Continue reading Some thoughts on parenting for Mothers Day

Jenson: 33 months old [Living Arrows 2/12]

It's true what they say: the days are long but the years are short. You see your kid every day but one day you really see them. You see just how much they've grown; they can suddenly reach things they couldn't before. They start trying to have actual conversations with you and you realise that… Continue reading Jenson: 33 months old [Living Arrows 2/12]
