I literally feel as if I have not stopped this week, I cannot seem to catch a break. E hasn’t been at all well with what started as a cold and now seems to have developed into an ear infection. I’ve suffered with an infection following my recent tooth extraction and I’ve been so busy with house-work, work-work and looking after my little ones that my body has become run down.
As you may have gathered, I haven’t had a great deal of leisure time but I will share a few of those very brief moments that I somehow managed to park my backside and catch my breath.…
Today has been a total wash out, E and I have spent most of the morning curled up in our jim jams following an all-nighter with the latest bug to hit the household.
It started at around 1.30am this morning when E woke coughing and unable to catch her breath. I scooped her out of bed, located her inhaler and began administering the usual calpol, cough syrup and piriton in hope that it may relieve E’s symptoms.
I was a midges doo dah away from ringing an ambulance as each time E coughed she would become breathless and panicked. She wasn’t the only one that was panicking!…
Each Sunday we make time to sit down together as a family and to either watch a movie or to play a board game. Rather than moping over the weekend coming to a close, we try to distract ourselves from the week ahead with some rest and relaxation as a family.
Playing board games is hugely beneficial to all involved, especially children. Board games can teach children a vast array of both simple and complex life skills including:
Learning to take turns
Building patience and understanding of others
Learning how to accept loss
Building concentration skills
Learning how to read others facial expressions and body language
Building tactical thinking skills
Learning how to deal with competition
Exercising and keeping the brain active
How to deal with pressure and time limits
Learning how to work effectively as a team member

We were recently sent the ‘5 Second Rule Junior Board Game‘ to play and to review.…
The Magic Of Play
We all love to have a little bit of magic in our lives, this especially applies to children as they are yet to fully understand the World in which they live and the concepts of Science.
To actually witness magic in the making is somewhat of a thrill. I myself love to watch a good magic trick and since having children have learnt how to perform a few of my own tricks to stun and amaze my little ones.
As a child light can be a fairly magical concept, as we wake each morning the sun rises and as we settle down to sleep the sun sets making way for the moon to cast its subtle glow.…
