Isn’t it amazing how much better everybody feels for a bit of sea air? We felt so lucky during lockdown to live in a beautiful area where we could walk every day. We were also incredibly grateful for our garden and the opportunity to get out for a swim in the river once things started to ease. The one thing we did miss though was the beach. It has been a long time coming but we finally made it to the beach this week. It was rather a relief to get back in the sea.   Breaking up a journey…

Katch Me clothing collections [AD]

I am an extreme example of the latter category. Buying clothes is an absolutely necessity. As a result, whereas most people buy loungewear and casual clothes, I tend to just wear clothes that I’ve ruined when I’m at home. Trousers that once were great but now I’ve painted in them. Tops that have seen better days. That’s why I really appreciate Katch Me allowing me to choose some new clothing from their casual…

With the children having been off school for so long, it is ridiculous that I haven’t adapted a bit better. When I look at things logically, I realise that the girls really need to run off some energy during the early part of each day. Not necessarily first thing, but by lunchtime at least. There have been a couple of days this week when that hasn’t happened and everything seems so much more fraught. Just add water I often hear it said that when children are struggling, just add water. It works in most situations here. When my girls are…
