Operation Bunny – Sun 25th Jan 2015

By | January 25, 2015

There is something more important in D’s life than cuddles, me, fish and chips and even Minecraft. Bunny. Her faithful companion. It was all too evident just how important Bunny is to her when Bunny disappeared for eight (very long) days and nights a while back. Bunny is clutched tightly on the way to school […]

The Castle – Sat 1st Nov 2014

By | November 1, 2014

It’s done, the homework that’s been a family effort, that we’ve been working on all week. The task was to build a castle and it was the last three words that T wrote in his planner that got me thinking…”can be edible”. Images of a castle with biscuit bricks presented themselves and I think at […]

Homework – Sun 7th Sept 2014

By | September 7, 2014

With T’s commencement at secondary school last week, it’s brought an increase in homework. This is something we had prepared him for, but I guess there is nothing like being giving a fantastic “grown up” planner and then seeing it being filled with homework. Because T’s Saturdays are taken up with football-related activities, it’s always […]

Loom Bands!

By | July 20, 2014

Maybe I’m feeling a bit “way-hey” because it’s nearly the end of term and no school runs for six weeks, or maybe it’s the antibiotics I’m currently on, but my Magic Moment for this week concerns these: Funny little coloured elastic bands. D received a box of these for her birthday a couple of months […]

Proms performance Monday 7th July 2014

By | July 7, 2014

This was D today, rrrrrrrocking a verse of a song in her school Proms. They have a week of class performances of singing and instrument playing and it’s always amazing to watch. My girl stood up in front of a packed school hall and sung. Something, as I’ve said before, she could never have done […]

By | June 25, 2014

Today was induction day for T at the secondary school he’ll be going to in September. The school place we had to take all the way through the appeal process and won (yay!, yes I am still yay-ing). It’s been a long few months since we had to make secondary school choices last October, to […]

Technical? Moi? #WhatsTheStory

By | June 23, 2014

Technical? No, no, no. Not me. I’ve never been a very technical person, that annoyed me when I first started blogging. I stumbled my way around publishing a few posts and then asked a couple of bloggers whose posts I enjoyed reading to give me some feedback. They came back with suggestions for layout, inclusion […]

The Blue Hair – Sun 8th June 2014

By | June 8, 2014

Here is D absolutely rrrrrrrocking a blue wig we saw in Claire’s Accessories today. She looked fab and thought she looked like one of the mermaids from her favourite app. We were in town as she had been given a gift card for Claire’s for her birthday and today was the day she was to […]
