A Christmas Journey

After four years in Berlin, this year we finally managed to make it to KaDeWe to see their Christmas display. At 60,000 square metres of selling space across eight floors, the KaDeWe – short for ‘Kaufhaus des Westens’ (Engl: Department Store of the West) – is the largest department store in continental Europe.

We consulted […] Read more…

Books for Big Brothers

We ended last year by becoming a family of four, so this year’s first Friday Five is, appropriately, a selection of our favourite books for little boys* who are about to become or have just become big brothers. The Boy has really taken to his new role with much enthusiasm, showering his little brother with hugs […] Read more…

{Home Tour} Baby’s Room

A couple of people have been asking if I’d do a post about Mr Fox’s new room, after sharing a couple of snapshots on Instagram of things we’d bought for it. Well, he actually just has a corner in our room rather than a room of his own (when he’s older he’ll move in with […] Read more…
