Beating winter time bugs …

I love Christmas, but Winter and I have a love/hate relationship. Having had the flu several years in a row I am all about beating winter time bugs, especially in the kiddos. Snotty noses are part and parcel of winter, mainly unavoidable as little noses flit from central heating to the colder fresh air of the outdoors.

However we can do some little things to help give our smalls a healthy boost and hopefully keep them relatively healthy this season.

A Letter to My Birthday Girl …

My beautiful Birthday Girl, Ells,

I cannot believe you are 14 years old. Where did the time go?

It seems like only yesterday when the midwife placed you in my arms, all 7lbs 6oz of you. Your eyes were deep blue, skin a little jaundiced but perfect and unmistakeably mine.

School places and the waiting game …

There have been loads of posts about littles and school places, and in the most part everyone had had the school they wanted. We are still playing the waiting game.

We were delayed in submitting our application for schools at the request of the PreSchool Forum, they are early years help for children who will need extra help transitioning to a more formal school setting. The delay means we are still waiting for the second round of allocations to happen at the beginning of May
