Well that’s it for us, the Summer holidays are over. It has been a manic few weeks and I’m going to miss my little sidekicks now they’re back to school and pre-school. But it is a great opportunity to catch up with some work. I can’t be the only one to have got somewhat behind with what I should be doing! I’m looking forward to catching up with everybody’s posts and reading about your summer adventures. Featured posts There were some fabulous posts linked up last week, and one in particular I found really useful. Vicky from Earth Based Fun…

It doesn’t seem like more than a few days ago that we were ushering the usual herd of children out of school for the last time, saying their goodbyes as if they’d never see each other again. Last minute preparations After another busy week including a trip to the fabulous Monkey Forest, Lia starts pre-school on Monday.

I am a firm believer that swimming is one of the most important skills a child can learn. It allows them to be safe and confident around water and offers a lifetime of health benefits.

It’s in aid of Cornwall Air Ambulance and encourages children to get creative at the beach this summer. All children aged under eight years old can take part. They simply have…
