A Random Diablog I have always enjoyed publicly holding my children’s hands and cuddling them. I usually wait for them to take my hand and I love it when they do, it’s not like I chase them up the street desperate, it’s just something that occurs naturally. It’s an instant love connection.  It’s usually when we are  shopping and having some one to one time together. When my son was younger my friend advised me to make the most of this public affection and cuddles, because her son at 14 would barely be seen with her!… Continue reading So it finally happened…

Ideas to Increase Calm for Kids

‘This is for you Mrs T’ Created by a child I taught some yoga, mindfulness and general relaxation tips to this week.

Solving World Problems One Mum at a Slime

Today in Streatham. Partners in Slime. The amount of glue, glitter, pots we also use at home… 😂 I love the Science in Action but the chemicals in some of the crap my daughter uses, eww. And the plastic. On a healthier note. Last night. Creative Cousins decorated gingerbread biscuits. With various e-numbers, sugar and preservatives. They thoroughly enjoyed it. This morning, whilst in Shavassana pose, the puppy found one of their tiny blue smarties abandoned on the floor. She then climbed all over my face and bounced around the house.
