CBD oil for Pain Relief & Sleep Problems

I apologise, I’ve been promising this post for months, and really it’s pretty easy to write, I just didn’t get round to it. If you have a weird funky illness that gives you pain and sleep problems, the I really recommend CBD oil made from Cannabis oil. There is no ‘hit’.  Just pain relief and […]

Sticks and magic

Sticks and magic

It’s been tough, at times over the past few months.  I’ve been so busy that I was surprised and really chuffed to be asked to remain as an ambassador for the Forestry Commission (which means I get a membership to Wendover woods). They sent us a lovely pack with a Stick Man book and a […]

Will we make it ‘Back to the moon for good’?

Back to the moon for good

At the end of the last half-term we took a very excited Curly Headed Boy (nearly 8) and Little Dimples (3.5) to the National Space Centre in Leicester for the first time for the launch of ‘Back to the moon for good’. Honestly I had absolutely no idea what on earth the launch was about! […]

Can a Samsung SSD be installed by a 7 year old boy?

New Cousin

  The people at Samsung asked me if I would like to install an SSD (Solid State Hard Drive) into my MacBook Pro to show how easy it is.  With my schedule being tight I asked Curly Headed Boy if he fancied it instead (as the Big Hairy Northern One was jumping up and down […]

How to go on holidays with more than two children and not pay a fortune

Omaha Beach in Normandy

No one warns people when they have more than two children that suddenly there will be huge problems with holidays. A couple of years ago we went to Cyrpus in one of those studio apart-hotels.  We met a lovely family with 3 children.  They could easily have fitted into the studio, but that was against […]

The importance of encouraging our children to be their ‘own people’

How To Talk So Your Kids WIll Listen

This is my review of Chapter 4 of ‘How to Talk so kids listen’ about ‘encouraging autonomy’. This is an interesting chapter for me after Curly Headed Boy asked me a few months ago “when are you ever going to let me out on my own”.  As a 13yr old boy was killed on the […]

What on earth to do when increasing the discipline isn’t helping?

How To Talk So Your Kids WIll Listen

So I’m onto the ‘important’ chapter of ‘How to Talk So Kids Listen’, which is ‘Alternatives to punishment’. This is the chapter that got me interested, because as I said, Curly Headed Boy turning 7 has been tricky.  Initially we succumbed to the fear that we hadn’t been clear enough with him and he ‘should […]

Do we really need a separate Camera from our phone camera?

Samsung Galaxy Camera

  We have a big first here ladies and gents. A few weeks ago I was contacted by Samsung to see if I would like to go and review the Samsung Galaxy camera in Berlin with about 50 other bloggers.  Now I’m having a bit of a rest at the moment, plus Little Dimples isn’t […]

Do we have a bad habit of confusing our kids so they don’t know what they are feeling?

How To Talk So Your Kids WIll Listen

The first book in my long list I’m going to review is: ‘How to Talk so your kids will Listen and Listen to kids will talk‘ by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish. To help me, I’m going to do an in depth review of each chapter, and then at the end of the 6-12 weeks […]

Great Toy For Imaginative Outside Play For Boys and TomBoys

Kids love Dens

Several months ago I was sent the most amazing thing for Curly Headed Boy to review the ‘Ultimate Dangerous Den Kit’ from Battle Box. OMG was I the best Mummy in the world for this old blogging marlarkey when it turned up! Luckily for me they are incredibly nice people as well, and they have never […]
