The Benefits Of Board Games – What A Performance!

The Benefits Of Board Games

We have a cupboard in the living room filled to the rafters with board games, they are such a simple yet effective way to spend time together as a family. Our family has a busy schedule with work, school, nursery and a whole host of extra curricular activities, I often feel that there is little time for us to get together and relax, chat, giggle, and simply enjoy being a family.

Board games are a fantastic tool for the promotion of communication, providing a relaxing atmosphere to laugh, share stories and to let off some steam.…

#LivingArrows – Road Closure

Some time on Thursday night a lorry decided to ram into the bridge that connects us to the next village, the road has since been shut and we are having to use the back roads to take the children back and forth to School and Nursery.

This wouldn’t normally be a problem as it usually takes the same amount of time to commute using either road. However, now that the main road is shut every man and their dog are using the back roads.

E is currently going through the ‘My Little Pony’ phase, she loves anything horse or unicorn related especially if it happens to be pink or glittery. Oh how she loves anything that glitters… god help us when she’s older and it’s jewellery that takes her fancy!
