It’s almost time… school is opening it’s doors to children once more! I’m still rushing around like a headless mummy chicken (who apparently can still type) trying to make sure I have everything ready for Petit Boy’s first day at … Continue reading
I have been doing the uniform dance that all parents do around this time of the year. Rushing around buying the correct attire for their children to wear, their wallets begging “please no more!” as we rip them open again and take out what we need to pay the unforgiving cost for this outfit that they just wear. But why does it feel this way? Why do we feel as if uniforms are for those who can afford to look the part? Continue reading
One week til my first born wears his uniform, his jacket and walks with me to the school gate for the first time.

I’m a slim footed lady and always was as a little girl. Infact my mother took me to a Clarks store which was oddly enough run by a man called Mr Clark. No relation just pure luck that he had the same name as the company! Anyway he was amazing and always got the shoes to fit my slim fit for school with little hassle. Continue reading
I rarely do video posts anymore but I will soon change that! Please forgive my god awful “erm”-ing I will work on that over time. I just need to be more prepared and less shy! So here’s a video showing the Tots Bots Easyfit V3 and V4. The V4 is the latest version and you can buy them here. You can also find the Birthday Print seen in the video here.
I’m writing this on both my blogs as it slightly overlaps. On my Media blog I have it here because it is about technology that is strong within the media industry and many journalists these days start out as small … Continue reading
