Glued to their respective screens.
Power Rangers Dino Charge for him.
Peppa Pig for her.

School holidays were lovely.
Lots of slow, down time at home.
Playing cars, dinosaurs, pottering in the back yard…and engaging in this game that Lyddie calls “bear marching” which is a combination of card matching and physical challenges.
Charlie caught up on sleep.
Lydia did the opposite.  Her new trick is to take off her sleeping bag, take off her pjs, climb out of her crib, read more

When I was younger, I always got sick on school holidays.
It was as if, when given a chance to rest and relax, my body took full advantage and let down all of it’s defences.

My parents are in town so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to visit GOMA and enjoy the GOMA Turns 10 celebrations.

I loved HEARD (aka the dancing horses) read more

During yoga, I could hear a few heavy drops soon become steady rainfall.
It was properly pouring when class finished.
