Are you worried about how much schooling has been missed?

After struggling to do home school with my daughter, I wanted/needed something to take the pressure off and help her to learn. After a nervous shy start she’s now well into it. The programme coving English and maths is intelligent and changes as you go along, working out where the gaps are in learning, how […]

Fathers Day, where’s my Father?

Father’s Day, so how’d you get past that one when she’s never even met him? He’s never said her name, bought her a birthday present or picked her up when she fell. It’s probably the only conversation she starts that I don’t really know where it’s going to finish. She asked me once who I’d […]

Father’s day with no father

Father’s Day, so how’d you get past that one when she’s never even met him? He’s never said her name, bought her a birthday present or picked her up when she fell. It’s probably the only conversation she starts that I don’t really know where it’s going to finish. She asked me once who I’d […]

The day out in London

I really do try and get the best and the most out of life I think that it should be about experiences and new things and yesterday we had is just an amazing experience. We took the kids on the train to London I’ve researched it and try to work out where to be and […]

#goals

I’m not making New Years resolutions this year, I’m setting goals for the year, things to aim for but not unrealistic targets that I’ll fail at and feel bad about. Goal 1: spend time It doesn’t matter what it is, take your time. It might be seeing friends, shopping, or playing snakes and ladders with […]

Dinosaur troubles

My darling five year olds homework this week was to write a poem about a dinosaur, IN THE SHAPE OF A DINOSAUR! What? You have got to be kidding me? That sounds like parents home work to me and I have no jeffing idea where to start with it, when I draw a stick man […]
