10 Things We Love About Autumn

Autumn has been skulking around for a couple of weeks now, but today is the Autumnal Equinox in the UK and I think it’s safe to officially say: Autumn is here! And I could not be happier, since it is my favourite season. My boys really love Autumn too, so I thought I’d share some […] Read more…

Playground Accidents – A Baptism of Fire

Accidents happen, even to the most vigilant parents. SPOILER: Everything is fine! It was only a matter of time. My older son (age 6.5) is quiet, thoughtful, introverted. He does move through the day in constant motion, reminiscent of the Duracell bunny adverts – a fact that always perplexed his nursery teacher, who couldn’t understand […] Read more…

How to Organise Jigsaw Puzzles

My boys are both really in to doing puzzles, so today I’m sharing some tips with you on how I organise our jigsaw puzzles. My biggest bugbear is these kinds of puzzles (see above) that just come on a sheet of cardboard and not in a box. However, they are popular and cheap, often available at […] Read more…

‘When Love Takes Its Time’

This week, it’s Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week. Research suggests that as many as 1 in 5 women who give birth in the UK and the US each year will be affected by a maternal mental health disorder.

{Home Tour} Shared Kids Rooms

Today, I’m going to share a little glimpse of our apartment with you. I frequently feature pics of our playroom on Instagram, and have been asked a few times now if I would write a bit more about our kids’ rooms and our decision to split them up as we have. So, first of all, […] Read more…

Park & Playground Kit

Yesterday was the official start of Spring, and with the weather getting better – though the last couple of days it’s been pouring with rain – we are heading out more for longer trips to the park or one of our local playgrounds.

A Guilty Pleasure – Solo Travel Without My Kids

I’ve written before about travelling solo with my kids, i.e. without my husband. It’s challenging, but fun. Most of the time. Today I want to talk to you about another kind of solo travel which is also fun – the completely solo kind. Without husband OR kids! When I did a search for ‘travelling without […] Read more…

5 Tips for Nurturing Language in Kids

Today is International Mother Language Day, a worldwide observance held annually on 21st February to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity and multilingualism. It reminded me, that it’s been a while since I wrote about bilingual parenting. Although I grew up bilingual myself, and consider myself a native speaker of English, I was monolingual […] Read more…

Danish Kids Favourites

  Somewhere between my first and my second baby, I discovered my love for Danish design. Since we’d saved pretty much all our baby stuff the first time round, baby no.2 was fully equipped, which I took as an excuse to invest in a couple of additional high quality pieces, so he wouldn’t just have hand-me-downs.

5 Reasons I Fell Out of Love With Winter

I love Winter. I’m a cold weather person through and through. My unnecessarily large collection of knitwear and wooly hats will attest to that. And unlike most people I know, the prospect of months and months of subzero temperatures and the potential of snow does not fill me with dread. At least, that used to […] Read more…
