The Book of Spice

Clearly Christmas is round the corner because I keep searching for and seeing new books being released!  I’m trawling through pages and pages of them to see if I can find an appropriate one for every member of the family as a little stocking filler.  Reading in the new school curriculum has been raised to new levels so I’m desperately looking for titles that will inspire my child and perhaps make Grandad & Nanny smile...

The kids Future

I had a parents meeting a week or so back at our school to discuss the new curriculum, which is based on the notion that we need to prepare our kids for working in environments we cannot even think of, doing jobs that haven’t been invented yet.  As a parent you cant help but feel a little overwhelmed by the future.  However, what with the Raspberry Pi and now this from the BBC – we should have a generation of kids that...

Who is Yayoi Kusama?

I remember about 3 years back Ash & I went into London for a day with friends and had a lovely lunch at the top of Harvey Nichols for my birthday. It was mid-October but the sun was shining and we sat on the roof top terrace drinking wine and eating lovely food and giggling a lot.  Afterwards we all went window shopping …yes lunch was all we could afford but it was worth it.   Whilst browsing we stopped at Selfridge’s...

The magic of M.C Escher

This week – being half term – I focused a little more on being a mummy rather than a “working mummy” and we took a train ride from home over to West Dulwich.  The trains were on time, we played the word association game, did some spellings and a few maths based questions to keep the two boys brains ticking over and then ate our body weight in snacks to make the two hour journey go quicker. This is what we saw...

Smart Phone Addiction

I wouldn’t necessarily put mobile phones in the same category as  tobacco and alcohol when it comes to addiction but some are saying that they clearly need to carry a health warning at least. Maybe ‘Phones make you narcissistic’ isn’t really the catchiest of  messages but it does sum up what  academics in this article are saying about how spending an average of 3.6hrs a day on your smart phone distracts from real life and can...

Book Club Etiquette

            If you think belonging to a book club is just an excuse to meet up for a chinwag and a glass of wine (yep, that was me!) then think again. Having recently joined a local club made up of 7 other mums who I loosely know, I have quickly found out there is definitely a book club etiquette that needs to be adhered to. Such as; 1. Never disclose the name of the book you are suggesting prior to the...
