Crafts have long been my thing, but as my kids are getting older, it is becoming harder to find the type of crafts which they want to get involved in too. Perhaps it’s because they are boys, and many of the crafts I enjoy don’t appeal to them anymore. We therefore have to choose our joint […]
How to make a Mayan Temple – homework help from Family Makes! I know, it can seem frustrating and kind of odd that teachers insist on sending this type of project home – make a model of ‘insert historic monument or artefact here‘! Frustration/desperation aside though, it does make sense really. It reinforces their learning […]
I’m starting them young! Toby shows the best way to reach the bar when you’re only short! I introduced the family to my local this week. A great place quite near to us, called the Hemelvaart Bier Cafe, which does a fantastic range of craft beers and some great food too. Just so they know […]
I’m looking back on our skiing trip to the USA and thinking about what we will do next time. It’s been a month or more since we returned home, and just as the jet lag was beginning to wear off, we lost another hour for British Summer Time! But hey ho, it served to remind […]
It still feels like a dream, or at least like we’re on holiday. This can’t be real, can it? Are we really allowed to stay here? I hope so, because the van has unloaded all of our things! The boys certainly hope so too!!

Yes, this is the sign of our times anyway! Our house is sold and we’re moving on. Just a few days left until our big move, our ‘Escape to the Country’, to another country actually (but only just!). Just as our spring flowers are blooming and the sun is shining, we are ready to ‘spring’ […]
It’s so long since we shared a Look Inside project with you. We’ve previously looked inside a Hudl Tablet and an Xbox and it is a really interesting and fun activity. We have learned a lot about using tools, and about how things are put together and how they work. We just think it’s cool […]
Our Sugar Smart Challenge for week 4 is to gather as many suggestions as possible from everyone we can, to compile ideas for being sugar smart as a family. (weeks 1, 2 & 3 are here) I asked my friends in the blogging community, who always have some great advice: Katie from Living Life Our […]
My Sunday Photo this week should possibly have been last week’s – it’s my flowers from Mother’s Day. But they are still looking beautiful one week on, so I thought I’d share them with you! Our cat, Poppy, was really enjoying them too!
