Book Review: 100 Animal Cookies

100 animal cookies

  Sometimes when we bake, we like to step away from ordinary gingerbread men and round cookie cutters, and be a bit more adventurous. The only issue is when we’ve completed the last cookie, and it looks so gorgeous we almost feel guilty for eating it. One problem that we’ve come across though, is that […]

Creative ideas with The Paint Book and The Pencil Book

    We’ve spoken several times about how creative some of our children are, whether it’s sticking, cutting, knitting, sewing painting, drawing or any other craft: you name it, they love it!

  The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet has everything a good film should include: brilliant acting, a heart-warming storyline, and the ability to make you laugh and cry within the space of a couple of hours.

Big Green Smile

  If there is one thing that a large family does a lot of, it’s laundry. Usually, we’ll do between four and seven loads of washing a day. While it is time consuming, the more pressing matters are how expensive products such as laundry detergent are, and how harmful certain ones can be to skin. […]

ReadyRoom Wall Stickers Review


      During the summer the kids became accustomed to the light evenings, and if they woke up before 10pm they would be reassured by the slight glow that crept in through their curtains before the day ended. However, with it now being September and with the short days of winter approaching fast, it […]
