When is the right time to talk to children about sex?

The other day I posted on my Facebook page about vibrators being on sale in Poundland. I thought it was wrong for them to be prominently on display in the Valentines section, surrounded by cuddly toys and fluffy pillows. I know that if LP or Little Man saw a Bunny Vibrator they would read the box and ask what it was. I’m all for saying it’s a toy for grown…

The George Inn, Barford St Michael – Oxfordshire Review

Dave and I don’t often get time away without the children so when we were invited to stay at The George Inn in Barford St Michael we couldn’t wait for a chance to relax and unwind in the middle of the Oxfordshire countryside.

Siblings {February 2019}

February – the month where it snowed. That is pretty much all LP and Little Man are going to remember about this month and that’s fine by me as the last few weeks have been pretty busy but uneventful and it’s nice that the snow gave us all a little highlight. We started the month at the Solent Hotel at the coast and the children loved their matching robes and…

Femme Luxe describe themselves as a current, classy and forward thinking online…

Polesdon Lacey has got plenty of parking and is situated in the middle of nowhere – or so it feels like it. There are amazing views in every direction, so much green space to explore…

Our First Visit to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom

The Magic Kingdom is what I would describe as Classic Disney. It is the Central Park of the four Disney theme parks that make up Walt Disney World in Florida. There are only two ways to actually get to the Magic Kingdom from either the resort hotels or the expansive car parks. The first is the futuristic monorail system and the second is the old style paddle boat. The first…

Young Voices – The Biggest School Choir Concerts in the World

When LP started Year 3 at school she signed up to the school choir. Each week she spends an hour singing after school, learning new songs and spending time with friends from across the Junior campus. It’s a highlight of her week and one of the things that made her sign up was the prospect of being part of the Young Voices concert. What is Young Voices? Young Voices organise…
