    After six months with Overblog, I'm transferring back to Wordpress and going for self hosting. Please bear with me whilst the move to new servers takes place. Now for a technical message: If you still see this post after 3rd December, please clear your... Read more

  • Leading by example

    As parents in an ever-increasing social media world, one of our needs is to keep our children safe whilst online. T regularly goes onto wifi to play FIFA 14 and it's on the proviso that he remains in the same room as us and the volume is sufficient for... Read more

  • Snuggles Sunday! 1st Dec 2013

  • The Washing Machine #LoveYourAppliance

    There it is, the appliance that sits in the corner of my kitchen (which was why it was difficult to get a straight picture), a completely necessary appliance for a busy household. I didn't realise quite how necessary until the old machine broke down and... Read more

  • Furious Friday! 29th Nov 2013

    It's quite unusual that a day will start and end with ill feeling on D's part but today has been that day. The reason? Predominantly that T was off school today with a sore throat. D was absolutely furious at the change to routine and that he would be... Read more
