{Apps We Love} LOOPIMAL

So, screen time for kids. A much debated topic. As a very tech savvy family, our house is overrun with gadgets, and The Boy knows how to use most of them. While we try to limit screen time, as too much of a good thing can result in mood swings and bleary eyes, there’s no […] Read more…

Songs for a Sunny Day

It’s been a bit of an exhausting week. The Boy has been off sick with a flu like virus. Mr Fox obviously senses something is wrong. Or is going through another growth spurt. Or both. I’m tired.

Valentine’s Mixtape

But since today is the day we celebrate all things love (something we should do every day, in my opinion, though I guess it’s nice to make some […] Read more…

Almost Winter: a Mixtape

We’ve reached the end of January already! Outside it can’t decide whether to be winter or not. At the weekend we had some snow, I’d say it was at least half a centimetre. It didn’t stay down for much more than 24 hours, but the temperatures have plummeted well below zero with clear blue skies […] Read more…
