Coats for Teen Boys – What A Nightmare (but we FOUND one!)

Clothing teenage boys is a standard parenting horror show of course – I’ve written recently about finding jeans to fit their weird man-child body shape, when they streak upwards but not outwards in their early teens.

Learning French – ‘ere we go… (also – Rosetta Stone discount code!)

This year on our trip to the Dordogne I’ll admit I was pretty happy with myself. When we first went to France as a family, I was the only one who had a smattering of French – and that was seriously rusty from the long hiatus since my GCSE days. Over the years and holidays it’s slowly improved, and the whole family has been getting better as we try at every opportunity to get by with French rather than expecting the...

Oh we’re in LOVE with this pretty pretty bike… *goes shopping just to fill the basket*

I was noodling about the webs, as you do when you’re supposed to be catching up on your monthly accounts, when I accidentally tripped over the doorway and found myself at Bikester. I know, me either. But stay with me here, it’ll be worth it. Bike shops are not, on a day to day basis, my usual noodle-spot. It’s not that I don’t love a cycle – oh no, I’ll whizz along the back lanes with the family on...
