Slowing down the pace of snack time… 

​​ Sometimes we don’t realise we’ve eaten when it’s gone quickly. This can lead to over eating.  As your children get older let them do more of the prep. This can be as simple as getting them to perl their own satsuma or eating peas from the pod.  It also

What a great colour these fleeces are! 

Meeting the sheep at Stithians Show today.  The girls loved watching the carding and spinning of the fleece too.  We’ve had such a great day as the girls and I braved our first agricultural show without a buggy (one carrier) and just a handbag! It was great to see so

Sunshine in the veggie patch
