I don't think, until maybe February, that I tire of saying the words Happy New Year to friends, family and people in the local communuity. It's so positive, warm spirited and plain nice. And after the mass indulgence of Christmas and New Year's Eve, what better way to kick off the brand new string of another twelve months in our busy lives?
So what are your goals or resolutions this year? Veganuary? Dry January? More exercise? More reading? Whatever they may be, don't beat yourself up i...Read Full Post »

We are all addicted to our screens! And it's becoming increasigly clear that too much time spent flicking through Instagram stories, spending hours on What's App or tweeting endlessly to random strangers is actually bad for our mental health.
Worse is the impact screens have on our children. I see it everywhere I go, kids glued to their phones on the bus, even staring at them whilst they're having Sunday lucnh with their parents, and the parents are doing it too!
I try really hard...Read Full Post »

We've chatted before about our environment, but it can never be spoken about enough.
It's becoming increasingly clear and evident that we are seriously damaging our planet. C02 emissions are at an all time high, we're globally experiencing more extreme weather conditions, the global average temperature is getting higher and plastic continues to pollute our rivers and oceans.
Right now, activists from Extinction Rebellion are blocking bridges, waving placards and sending out clear...Read Full Post »

We're very much looking forward to our Summer Holiday Club during the last two weeks of the summer holidays in August.
That period of the year can be quite daunting for parents. Six weeks for state schools and eight weeks for private schools to fill! Once you factor in a holiday away, perhaps a few days with the grandparents and the odd play date, there will still be weeks to fill whilst us parents have to go to work!
So why not book in with us?
In terms of what...Read Full Post »

If, like with my kids, your children insist on having packed lunches every day at school, it can be a bit of an effort for many reasons. Firstly, you have to actually make it and that adds more busoness to your already busy schedule as a working parent. Also, it's hard to keep it varied sometimes apart from the usual sandwiches, crisps and fruit. AND, all that packaging can add even more environmentally un-friendly waste.
So, how do we make the kids packed lunches environmentally friend...Read Full Post »

I've always believed that art is freedom. It has no boundaries, can be completely unique, it's aimed at everyone and it has its own language.
My daughter, Lola, who's 9, has recently really got in to painting. At home, she often just quietly gets out an old newspaper from the recycling bin, spreads it out on the dining table and just starts painting.
The other day, she painted lots of random sized shapes with different colours. I said to her, 'Wow that's great Lola, what's it mean...Read Full Post »
