Four Fun Ideas for the Bank Holiday

May 15 2014

With the weather heating up and the final May bank holiday on the horizon, I have three major tasks on my agenda: fun, fun and home improvement. After talking with friends and getting some great suggestions for family friendly fun (try saying that five times fast!) as well as quaint home renovation ideas, there is no reason why the two concepts have to be mutually exclusive. Feel free to hitch your wagon to any of these stellar ideas for a bit of well-deserved entertainment with the kiddies and simple upgrades designed to make your home feel fresh, after all, the next bank holiday is on its way – ok, three months, but there won’t be much time to spruce up your home until August!

April 2014 Newsletter – Lots of Easter Half Term activities for the family!

Apr 02 2014

Dear London Mums

Spring is in the air and half term holidays at the door. What a great combination!

April is a challenging month for parents. Yes indeed it is in the middle of blooming Spring, a season which is glorious celebration of re-birth but also tiring as our bodies adjust to the weather change.  Plus parents have to cope with finding lots of Easter half term activities and endure either endless organisation of carers or entertain the kids themselves.

For both these issues we have put together practical solutions that hopefully will help you survive and enjoy this Month. Simply check our Easter fun stuff feature filled with ideas to keep kids entertained over Easter half term.
