successful car boot sale tips

I mentioned the other week that my brother and I had done a car boot sale.  Neither of us had done one for a while, although I do occasionally drop in for a bit of a nosy round in case I spot books or games for N.  But we needed to start clearing out our […] Read more…

I feel a bit slack with our reading now.  I’ve not read a book myself since around February, although I seem to have 3 in different places in the house that I’ve started.  And since we hit our 300 books, and the weather’s been hotter, our picture book reading has tailed off too.  Mainly because […] Read more…

playing ball on the trampoline

N’s had a busy day at nursery today, what with sports day, followed by a party lunch in celebration of the leavers going up to school in September.  Then in the afternoon they had a splashfest in one of the nursery children’s paddling pools.
