I wrote recently about our plans for the twins playroom. I wanted it to be a place for them to currently play and learn, but also (longer-term), a space they can share as their den – i.e. to watch DVD’s, play computer games and hang out with their friends. To help me along with my ideas and designs I had…

I’ve said it on my blog before that I have never personally been a massive fan of Halloween, pre-children. I think it’s because my own parents were never really into it and didn’t make a huge deal of it themselves. I’m not even sure it was that ‘big a thing’ back then.

It’s a well-known fact that habits which are learned young are the ones which stay with us for the rest of our lives. With many of the earths natural resources under stress due to overuse, recycling is therefore one habit which we should all be striving to adopt. Getting children interested in (and used to) recycling any materials which can…

Our summer holidays have officially begun. And, (to be honest), I don’t really know where the last school term went…it seemed to whizz by. But it’s been and gone now and the school holidays have arrived. 6 weeks of not having to be anywhere; no preschool run or routine! The twins attend the preschool of a local primary school and so…

One of our favourite things to do together – the twins and I – is to make home-made smoothies in our kitchen! The kids love them! I try to make one each day, or every other day, for the children…either after their lunch, or with their breakfast. It is such a great way of getting them interested in and enjoying their…
