3hrs of Original Tom & Jerry Cartoons – under £4 (or FREE!). *happy*

This post was originally written eight years ago, when my then small boys’ favourite TV watching pleasure was Original Tom & Jerry Cartoons. Today I revisited it – and it’s just as relevant, with a little extra happy news on top! It all started when I tweeted this – (oh my days, those baby boys are all gurt big elderly man-sized teens now) The response was fast and universal. There was simply an outpouring...

Neal’s Yard Baby Barrier Cream. EVERY house needs it.

Honestly – I’m a bit of a bore on this. Neal’s Yard Baby Barrier Cream is one of my top ‘new baby’ gifts; this little blue pot is an essential in any house.  Most Mum’s prefer anything that goes near their babies to be as additive-free as possible. So it’s no surprise that we love the Neal’s Yard range either! Natural products, beautifully packaged… of course we love them. But...

Spotted! SUPER Adorable Crocodile toy – under £10 AND Fair Trade too!

Irresistibly bright and cheery, soft with textures and handily chewable flappy bits, and the absolute perfect shape for small hands to grab and carry.

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. But whilst we don’t do school lunches anymore, we do still do lunch (obviously… we don’t starve them…), and one of the loveliest things about home ed is actually the time...
