What Home Ed REALLY looks like. You’ve got this. Rebel.

Dear every single parent in my timeline madly trying to recreate school at home, with highly structured schedules & worksheets: please stop!Schools teach in this manner because they have to keep 30-odd kids sorted at the same time. It’s basically crowd control, and not designed this way because it’s the best way to learn!You have such a rare and brilliant opportunity here – please don’t be afraid of it....

The surprising stuff we bought and LOVED from Amazon last year

D’you remember the days when you used to go out to go shopping?

I suppose the endless wet weather, and weekend storms (and why always the weekend when we want to get out and about, what about Monday’s, they’re a good day for a storm right?) hasn’t helped much either.

Easy World Book Day Costumes – You’ve Got This!

Come on, we all know it’s true. A part of our brain always dreads World Book Day, and honestly just thinks that there are no Easy World Book Day Costumes. Of course it’s a wonderful scheme, and anything at all which gets kids engaged and involved with books wins my vote. But. Ye gods, it’s not like we parents don’t have enough to do, is it? We may Home Educate now, but trust me, I’ve been there.Oh yes....

How to create the perfect capsule wardrobe

While we’ve had a penchant for fast fashion in the past, thanks to its purse friendly prices and gentle nod to the catwalk trends, our desire to save the planet has led us to the capsule wardrobe movement. One in which cheap man-made mass-produced materials are ditched in favour of ethically sourced and organic items that transcend current fashion trends and are considered modern day classics. Here are the key items, you should...
