Writing Gift Lists
As you may know by now, I love writing lists, especially gift lists. I keep a record of all the gifts that we send and receive for future gift inspiration and as a record to reflect upon.
I like to spend time carefully thinking about what to buy for people, writing my ideas down before the event and then selecting a gift to perfectly suit each person.

Geek From The Get Go
My son will happily admit that he is a computer geek. Whilst we try our hardest to limit his ‘tech time’ his mind still stays firmly in the game hours later.
Mario is one of J’s favourite games to play whether it’s Mario Kart or Super Mario he is happy as Larry playing along with Mario and Luigi.
Poor J was nicknamed Yoshi from an early age as it is so close to his own name. Four years later when E came along we couldn’t help but to dub her as ‘Princess Peach’. Mario is certainly a family favourite and as so the kids have a fair amount of merchandise.…
