2015 Week 9 Day 1 – This policy of not having the television on in the week after school is working and the kids are finding ways to entertain themselves. After a game of slide the huge beanbag off the sofa whilst sitting on it ended in tears, the hama beads came out as well […]
2015 Week 8 Day 7 – Barnaby played in a school mixed 5-a-side tournament today and guess what? They won! He did some fantastic saves and his team mates scored some great goals too and played so well together, especially considering they had never played as a team before.
2015 Week 8 Day 6 – I am not getting on too well with Deliciously Ella’s recipe book, the brownies are perhaps an acquired taste? However, this pineapple, mango and coconut smoothie was delicious, perhaps just lacking some rum to make it truly amazing 😉
2015 Week 8 Day 5 – A sad day today, as we lost our last pet Lotka. We were Lotka’s carers, having inherited her and her companion Max from my husband’s mother when she passed away. She was a beautiful dog – here in a lot of pain but still looking so serene – even […]
2015 Week 8 Day 4 – Barnaby and his dad worked together to build a wooden car for a race the cubs are holding soon. Here is Barnaby proudly painting it.

2015 Week 7 Day 7 – Yesterday I let the children all have a red nose for the upcoming Comic Relief Day. Each nose came in a sealed bag, so everyone had a surprise. I think Barnaby and Felix were slightly disappointed, but accepting of their noses! Alexei asked me to take this photo as […]
2015 Week 7 Day 6 – One child had a play date all day and so I took the opportunity to take the other 3 on the little bus to Wallingford, as Barnaby wanted to go to the museum there! They LOVED the bus, and I must say, it is a wonderful service with such […]
2015 Week 7 Day 5 – Half term, and what better way to kick it off than with a visit to the dentist? The hygienist, actually, so that was money wasted on Willow who refused to open her mouth. I’m a bit annoyed at the dentist for telling me to book her in – she’s […]
