How to Throw a Circus Party on a Budget

So a week ago I turned 40, and I decided to embrace this major milestone of my life by throwing a big circus themed party.

Autumn Wish List

Have I mentioned yet how much I love Autumn? Every year, I have a long list of things I want to do with the kids during Autumn, and every year we get to the end of Autumn and have forgotten about half of them. So this year I’m being more organised and I have made […] Read more…

How to set up a book or reading nook

Happy World Book Day! To be honest, every day is Book Day in our house, but it’s great that there is an international day dedicated to promoting books and reading. Interestingly, the date set by the UN is actually 23rd April each year, but as this clashes with the National Saint’s Day of England, and often […] Read more…

Review: Mini Bakers Club by BKD

I’m back today with another review for you. We were invited to test out a complimentary Mini Bakers Club subscription box by BKD. I love the premise of this box, because it combines two of our family passions: crafting AND baking. The boxes are designed to encourage children age 3+  to learn through play, creativity and […] Read more…
