So, most of you know already that my Husband and I decided that two children was enough for us-especially after losing three babies between our two children. Aside from the fact, I personally just couldn’t deal with the grieving and heartache that miscarriage brings with it physically and mentally, our second child wasn’t as easy going as our first, and we knew two was plenty with chalk and cheesE as our kids!
We were really kindly sent some personalised books from The Magic of My Name-a treat for both children with individual stories of their names.
Recently, I received a press release from a company called Reroom. I always have a little mooch on the press releases, but never really respond to interior design/home interior releases, because I haven’t really covered that kind of genre on my website before.
It occured to me however, that before I wrote about most of the topics I cover, I hadn’t written about them before-each genre and subject has to start somewhere, and I realised Reroom were the perfect company to start with.

This became most apparent when I found out last term that my Son’s school were taking him to London for the day this month to see a show.
Guys, you know my love for Find Me A Gift and their awesome products. So when they sent me an email with their new items on, I knew I’d have to give this particular product a go (I mean the kids would love it-not me, honest).
We were really lucky to have been sent this beautiful bundle of early learning books from It’s Your Story.
Learning at home, is something that always has been really important to me-although we’re not a Home Education family-my children both attend school and nursery, I still like to support their learning at home. Continue reading
