Organising the Utility Room

February 19, 2021

This post contains affiliate links to products. Last month I wrote a post all about my goals for the coming year. Goal One was to move house – and I’m very happy to say that we moved at the very end of January. Phew! Goal Two was ‘get organised’ – and think this is probably my main goal for this year. To get our new…

Goals for 2021

January 1, 2021

Hello! If you’ve been around for a while, then you might remember that I made 19 Goals for 2019, this time two years ago. I really enjoyed having something to focus my mind and although I didn’t achieve all of my goals entirely, I’m sure that I achieved more than I would have, had I not made myself accountable here.

May 23, 2020

I’m so pleased that I have written these letters to you each year, to record how you have grown into the wonderful person that you are. A year ago, I couldn’t have begun…

Superworm EYFS Activity Afternoon

May 9, 2020

Earlier this week I had an email from Scholastic sharing some of the FREE Julia Donaldson-related resources they’ve produced for 3-5 and 5-7 year olds. So we thought we’d try out the Superworm EYFS activity. I have two girls, B, aged just-turned-two and M, very-nearly-four. We made our own Superworms which turned into belts, then dug for ‘treasure’ in the soil in our back garden,…

Shop Eco #StandWithSmall with Etsy {AD}

April 14, 2020

This post contains affiliate links so I will receive a small payment if you shop via one of them – but it won’t cost you any extra. During lockdown I’ve been unsure as to how I should behave as a consumer. On the one hand, I want delivery drivers to be out and about as little as possible, but on the other hand, small businesses…
