Travelling with Kids: a little Scottish Adventure

Last week, I shared some thoughts about travelling solo with my kids. We just got back from our week in Scotland, and I’ve put together a little account of our trip from the diary I kept while we were away – the good, the bad, and the delirious! I hope you enjoy the read. Thursday […] Read more…

Thoughts on…travelling solo with my kids

I’ve travelled alone with my kids many times before. The first time, was when we moved to Berlin. The husband had gone ahead of us six weeks before, and I had to make my own way with a baby, a stroller, a travel cot, two bags and hand luggage. A good friend of mine accompanied […] Read more…

Mini Bedroom Makeover: DIY Cactus Wall

We’re big cactus fans in our house. We have them in every room, except the kids’ rooms. In fact, cacti and a couple of other succulents are the only plants we have in our house. We probably needed more cacti in our house like a hole in the head, but I’d been seeing pictures of […] Read more…

Care Package for a Mama-to-be

I love putting together little care packages and ‘thinking of you’ surprises to send friends and family in the mail. And what could be more exciting than a new baby on its way! Anyone who is a mother themselves can probably relate to the fact that, once baby arrives, it all stops being about you. […] Read more…

Blogtacular Spectacular

I’ve just come back from the most fantastic weekend in London, which was filled with visiting amazing museums – including both old favourites and new discoveries – and attending the Blogtacular conference, which was so colourful it felt like a rainbow had exploded! I wanted to tell you a bit more about Blogtacular! It began early […] Read more…

Summer Salad: Watermelon, Feta & Olives

We’ve been going through a spot of rather hot weather here in Berlin. Some days it’s just so hot, you don’t feel like cooking or even eating a warm meal. Time to bring out the summer salads! One of our family favourites, beloved by adults and kids alike, is our watermelon, feta cheese and black […] Read more…

Kids Craft Workshops at the bauhaus_lab

For months now, I’ve been meaning to take Oskar along to one of the Saturday drop-in ‘Bauhaus_lab‘ craft workshops at Berlin’s Bauhaus Archiv, and last weekend I finally managed to go! The workshops take place on Saturdays from 11am to 2pm in the Bauhaus Pavilion, which is separate from the actual museum itself though on […] Read more…

Gift Ideas for little Football Fans

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock somewhere, you’re probably aware that the UEFA European Football Championship starts today. We’re pretty big fans of national football in our house, and always eagerly follow the European and World cups. Scotland, unfortunately, rarely qualifies – as is the case this time round – but luckily we still have […] Read more…

Tuna, Olive & Tomato Sauce on Rice

Looking for a quick and easy recipe that can be whipped up in an instance using store cupboard staples? Look no further! Our tuna, olive & tomato sauce on rice can be put together in no time, the longest part of this recipe is waiting for the rice to cook! Both our kids love this. […] Read more…

Babies in Museums at Berlin’s Ephraim Palais

Today, I want to talk about a very special project close to my hear. A couple of years ago, there was a seminar in the UK about ‘Babies in Museums’. Lots of great examples were being shared around, of museums working with the 0+ age group and making museums more accessible to families with very […] Read more…

Foxy Friends for Foxy Kids

When you name your kid Fox, even if it’s just his middle name, you shouldn’t be surprised when you are inundated with fox themed gifts (well, okay, I admit I was responsible for at least half of them). When Mr Fox was born, fox print everything was still at the height of the kids fashion […] Read more…
