Helping Your Child Transition from Nursery to Big School

The move from nursery to big school can be a scary one and not just for your little one. There are many changes that your child will need to get used to like putting things away after themselves, new faces and potentially longer hours away from mum.

Understanding Your Child's Learning Style

Win A Christmas Prize Worth Over £750

Are you counting down the days until Christmas? We are and we can't wait until the big day arrives. We were supposed to be moving house in the next two weeks but that has fallen through so we are in full Christmas mode. Although we won't be spending the day as we normally would (my husband is working over the festive period) we are planning to make the most of it and we plan to make sure the boys know the importance of Christmas - spending quality time with your loved ones. 

After a long two year wait his son will be coming over to spend some of the festive season with us and his brothers are beyond excited to get to see and spend quality time with their oldest brother. They are all console and games mad so I don't think we adults will see them much - well until we open the chocolates and dish up the buffet food (who doesn't love a good buffet at Christmas).


Things to Consider as An Airbnb Host

Staycations have become popular again in recent years. It’s never been easier or cheaper which only adds to its appeal. In fact, holidaying in the UK has come a long way since I was a child. When I was younger you either camped (which we did a lot) stayed in a caravan or if you had the money you stayed in a hotel. Nowadays you can rent cottages, apartments and even someone’s spare room for the duration of your holiday.
