My Year in Review

In January of this year, I decided that I would keep a record of all of the good things that happen throughout 2017. I’ve surprised myself because I’ve actually managed to write in this book every month and I’m so pleased that I have because it’s been lovely looking back through it, and reading about things that I’d forgotten about. I’ll definitely be doing the same thing in 2018! Until then, I thought I’d share with you my ‘Year in Review’… January I turned 30 years old We made bird feeders I went to spin class and did yoga Had… [Read More]

Barbie DreamHorse Unboxing and Review

When I was a little girl, my sister and I would spend hours playing with our Barbie dolls. They provided us with the chance to use our imaginations to be anything we wanted to be. We could be astronauts, beauticians, footballers, dancers and vets! We had a huge collection of various Barbie dolls, as well as lots of accessories. Now that I’m a mum, I’m so pleased to see that my own children love Barbie as much as I do. Every year, M always adds a new Barbie doll to her Christmas list. She has the footballer one, ballerina one,… [Read More]

Twinkl Educational Resources Review: Video Special

Like many parents I want to ensure that my children really enjoy the summer holidays. However, I do wonder what impact this break from school will have on their education. Our girls have been doing so well with their learning and reading. It seems a shame to go a whole six weeks without doing anything to support them and continue building on what they’ve already learnt. That’s why when Twinkl asked me to review their website, I was pretty excited. I have reviewed them once before back in 2014, but now that the girls are leaving reception and heading into year… [Read More]
