Bank Holiday Monday arrived and it was time to introduce Lola to the big wide world. She has had all her jabs and was ready to go for her first walk. She was ready to go out further than the garden, we were ready for her to venture further than the garden, and the garden was breathing a sigh of relief that Lola was going to be going further afield.
We have been lead training her in the garden, but she does like to hold a bit of the lead in her mouth, so I was unsure how
What does a 7 year old girl do when she receives a bag containing 5400 loom bands? She starts by “oohing” and “ahhing” over them before sorting them into compartments by colour. Finally after all that looking, she starts to make a mountain of bracelets!
We have definitely been caught up in the loom band craze here and it shows no sign of stopping any time soon in our house.
Rainbow Braid offer 5400 loom bands on Amazon for £14.90. I think that’s a bargain price for the quantity you receive. They are really good quality
Are you ready for back to school? It’s scary to think it’s only next week that most children in the UK will be returning to school after the six-week break. We’ve packed loads into our six weeks, but now it’s time to focus on getting back into routines at bedtime and making sure we have everything ready for the first day back.
7yo loves stationery and is always writing something down in a notebook, or using sticky notes to leave for people. Her school has a new branded rucksack that she has persuaded me to buy this year,
Over the last few weeks, I’ve been treated to the whole family spending time together. It’s a rare occurrence for 19y0 to be involved in the family activities these days unless there is a special occasion. First there was the Disney holiday that we all spent together, and when she poked her head around the door when we were getting our new game out of the box from Drumond Park, and asked to join in, we were pleasantly surprised.
Articulate for Kids is aimed at children between 6-12 years. Despite the fact there was only one player
It doesn’t seem like 5 minutes ago when 19yo went on her first holiday without us. She was just 17 years old then,and has since been lucky enough to go away without us parents earlier this year as well. One of the main reasons I let her go before she was 18 was because the friend she was going with had close friends living in Portugal. I’d spoken to the parents of said friend and I was satisfied that she would be well looked after.
The second time she went back to Portugal, the friend she went with the

I cannot believe the school holidays are almost over. It doesn’t seem like five minutes ago we were finishing school and getting ready for six weeks of adventures. It’s time to start thinking about lunch box ideas for next week going back to school. 7yo can be a slow eater and we like to make sure she will eat what we give her. Too many times a full lunch box has returned home at the end of the day.
Wednesday 23rd July 2014 – Disney World Florida Holiday Day 3
We were up early this morning as we had a taxi booked for 8am to take us to Discovery Cove. Today was the day we were going to be swimming with dolphins!
I was anxious to get to the taxi before it had arrived in the car park as I had heard horror stories of the fare rising before you even stepped inside the taxi. Thankfully he had only just arrived before
Stickers and Horrid Henry are a great match for 7yo as you may be able to see from this picture, when I gave her the new Horrid Henry Sticker Book from Orion this month.
Horrid Henry’s sticker book contains over 200 stickers that has been designed to be interactive for the reader. 7yo has always really loved stickers and sticker books, practising placing the stickers inside their silhouette in the books. This sticker book is a step up from ones we have had in the past.
The pages tell a story with a basic picture and a
I didn’t feel like we’d done a lot this week, but when I look back I can see that we have actually had a lovely week.
17th – We went to the park today and took a family selfie
18th – I was experimenting in the kitchen today and made some Arabian spiced turkey for dinner
19th – 7yo went to Go Ape today and loved every minute of it.
20th – I have been experimenting with loom bands and trying to make an Elsa doll for 7yo
21st – Back to the library today and
7yo has never asked to give our local Go Ape a go. Whilst she is too young and too short to complete the adult version of climbing through the trees in the forest, she is perfect for the junior version. When Tina from The Soup Dragon Says mentioned she was coming down with her family to do Go Ape, she asked if 7yo would like to go as well. I got a resounding “YES” from 7yo, so off we went the other day to be monkeys for a few hours. Well Tina, her family and 7yo did. I stayed firmly
