Living Arrows 24~52

June 17, 2019

  “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”. Kahlil Gibran This week was a tiring one for Fin with a week of assessments; we could see by Thursday night those dark circles appearing and a touch of teenager attitude which really isn’t like him.  I don’t think it helps that a certain little person keeps waking the whole…

Homemade Playdough Recipe with Natural Dyes

June 14, 2019

We have been going a little play dough mad in our house at the moment, with having a lively toddler to play with and then an older sister who loves any kind of sensory play that vaguely resembles slime/putty and also a 5 year old who occasionally likes to get his hands on some dough.

How to be Organised in June

May 31, 2019

Welcome back to my Monthly family Organising post.  I’m really enjoying writing these posts, as it also helps me to remember dates and plan ahead to be more organised each month.  June is one of my favourite months, a month where I think about eating strawberries, playing tennis and having picnics.  I find it’s often the nicest month of Summer, so I intend to make…
