Playground Nostalgia | Kickers Competition

Sounds of my childhood include the rope hitting the playground floor and the rhythmic beat of children's feet. The chants of London Bridge that's falling down again and asking Mr Wolf for the time. The clanging of collections of Tamagotchi's on school bags and the sighs from children that had once again forgotten to feed their 'pet'. The scratching of heads as we try to do Cats Cradle, never quite getting it right. The clapping of hands and songs about sailors going to sea to see what he could see. Children haggling as they swap, pogs, beanies and Pokemon cards.  The shouts of "ouch" as you once again knock your knuckles on 'clackers', whilst others sat quietly with the occasional musical beep beep from Gameboy's.

The toys and games may have changed since my playground days but the laughter and excitement are still much the same today. Instead of clackers, there are fidget spinners, both of which puzzle parents I'm sure - but they take the playgrounds by storm and will create fond memories for them as they have done for us.

A boy with very few words

My boy turns two in a few weeks and up until recently, I was starting to get quite concerned with his communication skills and lack of speech. By the time Darcie was two she was talking in complete sentences, we were even able to ask her what she would like for her birthday and she was able to give us a long list of ideas. As a teacher, I know all too well that every child is different and learns, grows and develops at different rates but I kind of feel it's only natural to compare and worry. I mean that's what us mums do best... worry!

Family Days out with English Heritage

With the summer holidays in full swing, we're doing our best to ensure the kids are not only entertained this summer, but that we create some special family memories. Whilst I have spent some days up to my elbows in cuddly toys, picking play doh out of the carpet and trying to resist saying "no" over and over again, we have had some lovely days out to date and more up coming on the calendar.
