How to Make Religious Education Fun for Kids

I am sure that back when you were at school, RE was probably another word for dossing around because it wasn’t a *real* qualification. I will admit that I was guilty of just that, however, as I have grown older I have learned to love learning about different cultures.

Now that children are in the mix, it serves as only more reason to learn about the various cultures that aren’t only present around the world, are on our doorstep. Of course, when maths, literacy and science take up almost all of their educational time, with barely an hour a week reserved for other subjects such as RE, that isn’t much time at all to actually learn anything.…

#LivingArrows – Her Little Pony & His Little Puppy 16/53 (2018)

So the kids and I went back to School today, it was great to get back although I’m not sure the kids entirely agree. They obviously enjoyed their Easter holidays which is good as I was a little concerned that they’d be fed up with being stuck at home, thankfully it won’t be long now before Maisy has her second injections and we are able to get out and about as a family with the pup in tow.

There were a couple of days over the holidays when J popped out to play with friends, during that time Paul and I entertained E by offering her ‘Princess Days’.…

#MySundayPhoto – Seeking Solace At The Shore

A moment to oneself is a rarity at present, gone are the days when I have the time to tootle down to the shore and sit contemplating the wonders of the World.

It’s all very well having time to yourself but for someone like myself, it’s far better to keep busy as having the time to sit and ponder isn’t healthy nor productive.

Earlier this week I was given two hours rest bite from the parenting pandemonium. After dropping my little darlings off with their Grandparents, I had fully intended to go straight back to the house of hound but having had a taste for freedom, I took a detour and sought sanctuary at the shore.…

Misshapes, Mistakes & Misfits

I’m not sure whether it’s sheer exhaustion or the fact that I’ve been writing most of my blog posts using my IPhone, either way having read back upon previous posts I’ve discovered a rather large amount of errors.

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for my errors and to explain that whilst I adore writing, I’m more than aware than I’m not exactly gifted at grammar nor spelling for that matter. I’d love to be able to write the perfect post first time around but it never really works out that way. I really ought to read through my work more than once before pressing ‘publish’ but with time constraints I tend to type and take off.…

#LittleLoves – Donning Denim, Red Hot Chilli Peppers & Mixing Moments

We have almost come to the end of the holidays which the kids and I have really enjoyed. It’s get to a point though when you’re ready to get back into a routine and get back to it. I’ve already put together a few plans for the week ahead, this includes both work and relaxation as I am in much need of a girly get together with my bestie Dee, as neither she nor I have had the time to sit and have a brew and the banter.

Parenting is a funny old game as holidays are in no way, shape or form any kind of break should you happen to be a Mother or a Father for that matter. …
