The husband who stole my birthday – With Jord Wood Watches

 I’ve mentioned before that my husband and I have the same birthday. Bloody cheek of it. There are some ways in which it’s really convenient to share a birthday; he’s never forgotten. In a life before children, we used to be able to do something fun together like go away …

Another birthday blog: @KidsParcel review

One thing that birthdays lose as you get older is the element of surprise.  If you actually get any presents at all, they are usually ones you’ve specifically asked for or at least circled in the Argos catalogue left open on the appropriate page. Or slippers. For kids though, birthdays …

Happy third birthday! With Toddler Tools

As you’ll probably know, my laptop is still broken. Well, it might be fixed, but whatever state it is in, I do not have it.  Rather annoyingly, I’d written the best part of a ‘happy birthday’ post and then saved it – not in Blogger (yes, gasp, I’m still on …

Londonit: Whingelets tackle the big smoke with Little Tikes

So Monday might have been wet, miserable and full of poop but on Wednesday, I got my parenting mojo back. We had a thoroughly exhausting but brilliantly fun day out in our nation’s fair capital. See? It’s not always doom and gloom over here (it’s just arguably funnier – for you, not me …

Funcomet HappyCalc maths puzzle review

The big one has just started preschool. It is an emotional time. Not for her (she’s fine), for me. Mainly because of the fact she’s only away for three hours at a time twice a week and during those three hours (about 2hrs 40minutes taking out the walk there and …
