This afternoon Libby came home from school and announced that she would be going to the National Sea Life Centre Birmingham next month on her first ever school trip. A trip to the National Sea Life Centre This seems like such a big milestone, the first time she’ll be going away on a coach. Taking her rucksack with her packed lunch and heading off for the whole day. I feel quite reassured that she’s going to somewhere that she knows so well. We might even go there ourselves before her trip, there’s so much going on I’d hate Lia to…

The Book of Everyone – Review

We all know at least one person who is difficult to buy for. Even the usual default gifts are out. Wine? They don’t drink. Chocolate? They’re on a diet. Gift vouchers? They lose them.

Well it’s been quite a week. On Saturday I did the Gower 50 Ultramarathon – my first ever ultra but hopefully not my last. I didn’t run as much of it as I’d have hoped to and I suffered quite badly with blisters. But despite it all, I got round and I’m proud to have done it. The girls had a day around Swansea while I was running. They were on one of the beaches to meet me as I ran past. Sunday was swimming day and their dad took them while I was still on my way back from…

Teletubbies Magazine – Review

Libby has always enjoyed a magazine. She likes doing all the activities and having the one on one time to go through it together. If I’m honest, I’d never really got around to buying a magazine just for Lia. But with Libby at school, when we were offered the opportunity to review the Teletubbies magazine, I realised it was time I started doing things like this with Lia. Teletubbies Magazine – Free Gift I’m not going to lie, I’ve never known a child read a magazine before playing with the free gift. With the Teletubbies magazine, the free gift was…
