My top tips for camping with small children

The usual sounds of an English campsite: air pumps filling up the inflatable mattresses, small children giggling, screaming and crying (the crying is normally our children).

Survey Reveals UK Parents Experience a Daily ‘Pang’ Of Guilt

Survey Reveals UK Parents Experience a Daily ‘Pang’ Of Guilt

Recently an independent survey of 2,000 UK families, commissioned by toy company Little Tikes, reveals that parents are fed up with the lack of quality time spent together, with the average mum and dad experiencing seven pangs of guilt a week! Being too busy or tired to give kids their full attention and working long hours have been named amongst the top guilt triggers. Little Tikes has linked with Olympic Gold Medallist Greg Rutherford to encourage families to ditch the guilt and enjoy the great outdoors this summer with their ‘Little Trikers’ campaign. They’re giving 50 4-in-1 Sports Edition Trikes away to inspire families to join in the sun this summer. Log on now to www.littletikes.co.uk. VIEW the POST

Competition to win learn to swim goodies

Isla who has just turned 3, is getting better everyday and I am confident that before she is 4 she will be swimming too. Swimshop are working with me to give away some equipment to help your little ones learn to swim.

#littlemissbookworm – Little Miss Hug

I have to admit it was the potential of reviewing this book that gave me the inspiration for Isla Rae's little bookworm corner. I love the Little Miss range and the Mr Men range, they are very clever and remind me of when I was a child. Little Miss Hug is launching today, the 35th book in the series and what a fantastic birthday treat for my little miss hug, Isla. VIEW the POST
