Being an ‘animal loving’ household we are forever being asked if and when we can get this, that and the other despite already having a dog the kids seem adamant that we need more pets. As for Paul and I, we are quite happy with just the dog especially at present given that she is twelve years old and sadly struggling to walk therefore taking up a massive amount of our time and effort.

Thankfully technology has provided us with alternative options, options which require no feeding, no walking, no cleaning and none of the commitment that comes with a real-life pet.…
As you can imagine having two children doesn’t make for a tidy house, our living room could often be mistaken for Toys R Us, either that or a bomb site depending on the time of day.
We have endless amounts of toys, most of which do get played with at some point. However, there are a select few toys which come out on a daily basis and seem to keep the kids entertained which gives us adults a short amount of time to sit, relax and to sip a hot coffee in peace. Who am I kidding?! As if… any time to ourselves is usually spent playing catch up on the household chores but there’s always wishful thinking!…
As you may have read in past posts, my family and I are big fans of board games. Each and every Sunday following a busy bar shift I return home to spend a few hours of quality time with my husband and children before we get ready for the week ahead. Whether it’s a movie, board games, painting or simply sitting together we make sure that we take the time to sit together, to enjoy each others company and to have fun as a family.

Our son J loves to sit and fiddle with things, he has a short attention span at the best of times and as a result we often find him playing and tinkering with toys slightly differently to how most children might play.
It doesn’t bother me in the slightest that J sees things slightly differently, nor that he plays differently to most children, it’s just how he is and so long as he’s happy then that’s all that matters really.
There are a few toys however that J seems naturally drawn towards, those stress ball type, malleable toys which allow J to pull, poke and fiddle with to his heart’s content.…
