I’m always on the hunt for fun storage ideas and have become somewhat preoccupied with trying to tidy our house and rid us of unnecessary clutter. See below for some of my favourite storage ideas. Mstr M has no interest whatsoever in soft baby toys and rattles anymore, so these are […]

If you are looking for some art work for children, then you should definitely check out Little Carousel Gallery. All pieces are hand made by British art school graduates and are personally chosen by LCG for their potential, making them great investment pieces. I particularly love the work by Hwa Seon Yang […]

If you are after a little present that is good value and has a personalised touch, then I think that these American Apparel ‘Alphabet T shirts’ are perfect. They are £13 and come in an array of very cool colours. I’m definitely going to get one each for the boys, […]

We had a little excitement last week when having some work done in the garden. I asked the workmen if they wouldn’t mind removing our old broken barbecue, along with its attached canister of propane gas. A fairly innocuous task … so I thought. While in the process of feeding […]

I’ve been hunting around for a rug for Mstr M’s room for a while now, and there really aren’t that many inspiring choices out there. It wasn’t until I came across Amy Kent‘s bespoke rugs that I changed my mind. All of the bespoke rugs are individually hand knotted on looms in […]

We have just become members of London Zoo and Mstr L went last weekend. Despite still being a little poorly, he adored it. If you live in London it is so worth getting a membership as it really brings the cost down per visit (see here for membership details). See pics […]

We are currently undergoing a huge Spring clean and I am desperately trying to de clutter. Easier said than done. The very professional and efficient guys at ‘Fabulous Cleaners‘ are working their magic and cleaning our carpets as I type. This is not a pleasant job as they are puke covered, […]

Mstr M had his first ‘Monkey Music‘ experience yesterday and he loved it. This particular session was held in the Church at Fulham Broadway and lasted 30 minutes. The teacher was incredible and had the most amazing voice. She grabbed (and kept) the attention of all the children as well […]

Mstr L is really starting to outgrow his ‘Strider’ balance bike and the time has come for him to get a Big Boy’s Bike. Mr A and I have been deliberating over whether to wait for his birthday (July) or just bite the bullet now. The seat cannot go up anymore, […]

I have just come across this lovely company called Monkey & Mole that sells beautiful handmade leather moccasins for babies and toddlers. The company was set up by Chrissy, who designs and makes the moccasins herself after her own child pretty much refused to wear socks and shoes. When Mstr […]

We went to a lovely children’s party the other day. There was a rubber duck race on Barnes’ duck pond, the father dressed up as a dragon and the children (dressed as knights and princesses) chased him across the common with water bombs. It was such a fun party and […]

When we had the boys we received from the lovely Lucy Dodwell a gorgeous card and sweetest little personalised framed map. They sit proudly on Mstr M’s chest of drawers and so many people ask about them. Lucy set up her company after having her two children, and creates beautiful personalised […]
