On Friday, I thought I’d give the summer camp one last try for Jude. I have never felt completely happy with it as I’m not entirely sure what Jude does all day and I’m also not entirely sure they understand their children enough. I know as a parent it is down to me to tell them […]

Our version of Thursday

You know when you can’t be bothered to do go out or really do anything at all and you have crazy delusions that it will all be ok, the children won’t be bored hanging out around the house; they can climb trees, tidy their rooms, read books and do jigsaws together? Well, I had one […]

I was sent some products to review from Child’s Farm so wanted to share my thoughts with you all; so far we have used the baby bedtime bubbles, sun cream and baby oil. These are all suitable for sensitive skin which was my main criteria because of Jude’s eczema. His skin has been pretty good […]
