Whether it’s mine or somebody else’s, I usually find children difficult to buy presents for – especially at Christmas! If you’re the same and still looking for ideas, you’ve come to the right place. There’s quite a variety of gifts below for children of primary school age, so hopefully you’ll be able to find something suitable. Happy shopping! Read more
Let’s talk school run style. Well, we’ll start with school mornings in general. I’m not a fan, in all honesty. I’m really not an early bird, the boys just mess about eating their breakfast and getting dressed, they argue; but I do like being on time. I get anxious if we’re even running one minute late. So I’m the school run mum that just jumps out of bed and chucks my clothes on, ties my hair back, and doesn’t put any makeup on. I’m only a special occasion wearer of makeup to be honest!
I know we’re all different, and some parents go straight to work from school so they may need to make a bit more effort.

You’ll find some non edible gifts in there too, but they’re sure to go down a treat. Read more
I like doing crafts on my own as I can control how much mess I make – and because I’ve made it, I don’t mind it quite as much. But when they boys mention the word “crafts” or “paint” I die a little inside. To be honest, I’d rather they just kept that part at school so I don’t have to clear up the aftermath! Or end up doing it for them… And then I met Little Brian paint sticks. My. Life. Has. Changed.
