Star Trek at its core … Continue reading My Sunday Photo: 17:26: Star Trekkin!
This photo sums up our morning of fun yesterday at a local soft play. Myself, Oliver (pictured) and Leo spent just under two hours yesterday morning charging around at soft play whilst Mummy went shopping. We are very lucky where we live as we have five or six different play areas to choose from and as a result we can vary where we go … Continue reading My Sunday Photo 17.25: The Fun of Soft play!
We are very lucky in that both Oliver and Leo will eat pretty much everything we serve them and that they tend to prefer fruit over sweet foods.

This morning Oliver will start in Reception at his new school and I am left wondering where the last four years have gone? I can remember quiet clearly bringing Oliver home from the hospital and thinking how he had his whole life ahead of him. Well now he is making his start on that journey within his life and taking his first full … Continue reading OMG You’re Starting School!

We decided to take a trip to the Natural History Museum in London for the Dinosaurs. Recently both boys have shown an … Continue reading My Sunday Photo 17:24. Dinosaurs!
This month in Storytime Saturday we will be looking at the origins of Jack and Jill. This is a very well known nursery rhyme and is probably sung by almost every parent who has children, but where did it originate.

This weeks word is: SCHOOL! Oliver starts reception next Monday and although he has been in a school setting during his time at the pre-prep we sent him to, the nerves are still there for myself and Keighley.
