I am working in partnership with Argos to launch the new My Little Pony The Movie toy range. In celebration of the launch, we have created our very own My Little Pony craft, taking inspiration from the toy range. What can I say – I was too old for My Little Pony first time around and my boys are too old for it now that is it back again! Perhaps it never went away, hmm, you will have to fill me in on that. Well, I am lucky enough to have a six year-old great niece who is the perfect age for the launch the new My Little Pony toys and more »
Every Halloween we splash out on capes, broomsticks and witches hats and every year 300,000 tonnes of clothes end up in the bin. Scary right? Well, I am working with Hubbub this Halloween to bring you 5 DIY Halloween Outfits from things you have at home. These kids DIY Halloween costumes are simple to make and I basically raided the airing cupboard and wardrobes.

How gorgeous is this free Kokeshi colouring sampler from my friend the talented Tasha Goddard? As I get older I really do relish the chance to switch off and unwind and one of my favourite ways is to colour in. Over the last couple of weeks, I have taken my colouring sampler with me when I take the boys swimming and it has really been fun to do.
Summer holidays, you either love them or hate them. I am never sure about which camp I am in. I love spending time with the children but do worry about the cost of summer activities. I relish not having to get up each morning and giving up the school routine, but I don’t like hearing the words “I’m Bored” That is why I came up with the bored jar (about four years ago).
I have such fond memories of Noddy and friends. In fact, I think it was my first introduction into the fantastic world of Enid Blyton. I remember my Grandad reading me the stories and telling me that he read the stories to my Dad when he was a little boy. It is hard to believe that Noddy was originally published between 1949 and 1963.

If he needs something then he tends to buy it!
