Katinka’s Tail Review – It’s A New Judith Kerr Book, People!

Judith Kerr OBE . Oh how I love her. Come on, we ALL do – show me a parent, and I’ll show you a battered copy of The Tiger Who Came To Tea. Her oddly age-irrelevant and rather wonderful ‘When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit‘ is one of my top ten comfort reads. I grew up with wonderful Mog, and enjoyed them all again the second time round with my children when they were small. But I couldn’t get quite as excited...

Lunch with my girl #littleoneswholunch

One of the best things about Home Educating is that the whole ‘Back To School’ furore rather passes us by. Our summer takes much longer to fade and we’re really only just starting to get into the swing of an Autumnal house.

Spotted! Gorgeous Wooden Wonder Wagon Walker from Hape

We love a decent wooden toy – and I’ve fallen straight in love with this fabulous little walker from Hape. Not only because it’s so darn pretty and has a retro loveliness to the design with that cherry red edge. But also because it does this – That, right there my friends, is YEARS of play value. LONG after they’ve outgrown the walker they’ll ADORE having a trailer to pull things around in. To be...

Spotted! Just look at this fabulous ‘Enjoy The Little Things’ Bedding

We have been big fans of Vertbaudet’s bedding for years – they always feature cool, funky kids prints in strong colours with not a branded TV character in sight. The quality is excellent (my 10yr old is still using the duvet cover Vertbaudet sent her when she moved into a ‘big bed’. And still loving it, too. So if I’m ever on the lookout for new kids bedding, I’m happy to tell everyone that...
