Easter Gift Ideas For Under £10

My little boy is one of those unusual children who doesn’t like chocolate.  He once tried a piece at around 18 months old, was hugely unimpressed and hasn’t touched a piece since.  He reliably informs me he will like it when he’s older, although I’m not too sure at what point he will decide he is “old enough” to enjoy it. As chocolate eggs don’t go down well with our little man we have to be a little more creative with our Easter gifts as he still likes to feel the Easter spirit, just without the sweet stuff. Here’s our…

A Lazy Morning In Bruges

Bruges has always been on my top ten list of places I’d love to visit.  Having spent an amazing New Years Eve in Brussels what feels like a lifetime ago, I have a soft spot for Belgium and the pictures I had seen of Bruges looked so beautiful I needed to visit.

In some ways it feels like it has been June forever, and in others like it has passed by in a flash.  June is always a bit of a crazy month for us, I always forget how busy I am work wise as I think I should be winding down for summer now that the Year 11 and 13’s have gone but it’s the end of year exam/report writing season so school is busier than ever. Throw in my husbands birthday, who always manages to plan a weeks worth of events to celebrate and life has been a bit hectic,…

My Top 5 Favourite Shops For Toddler Boys Fashion

My little boy is a November baby, which means that his Autumn/Winter wardrobe is usually taken care of courtesy of his birthday and Christmas presents.  He really does get spoilt and his wardrobe is usually bursting at the seams, and a lot of items get carried over to the next year as children’s sizing can be a bit hit and miss. The only downside is that they are not necessarily the clothes I would personally choose to dress my son in.  They are lovely and he looks great in them but they’re not always to my personal taste.  I can…
