[01/04/16] First working day of 2016 and starting the year welcoming new children into my home. Exciting times :)
[12/29/15] I don't know what is more challenging, looking after children or Jessica's tamagotchi. Such an attention seeker!!
Has had a great time with the kiddies today on our nature treasure hunt with the help of our 'Go Find It' cards followed by blackberry picking. The children are very much looking forward to making blackberry crumble tomorrow :)
[08/24/15] Off to the Museum of Science and Industry with the little people. All are super excited :)
[08/21/15] Just been sent to the other room with the door shut behind me by 5 children and told to make a brew. I ain't going to say no now am I haha All children currently wrapping up various toys and making banners for my pretend birthday party. Love children's imagination!!
Has had a fab day at the Sealife centre today. The girls have loved every minute of it and really got stuck in with all the hands on activities. I even conquered my own fears and let shrimp suck my hands, stroked a crab and held a starfish :/
[07/22/15] Are you or do you know anyone looking for childcare. If the answer is yes then I would love to hear from you. Currently looking at filling spaces from September. For any more details or for a look around my home please contact me on here, drop me a private message or call me on 07745675227 ☺
7a.m. "Mummy please can we paint?" Got to love children's perception of time and what it represents :) At least I've two children fully clothed, fed and happily painting :)

Loving our Autumn display. The children have put a lot of effort and enjoyment into collecting leaves/sticks/conkers etc. over the last couple of weeks and lots of discussion has took place about Autumn animals. Can you spot them? :)
[09/14/14] Can't believe my big girl is starting school tomorrow. Where does time go? Seems only yesterday I changed my career slightly so that I could stay at home with my girls :)
[09/10/14] Think my heart officially melted today when a child started to cry on the park after fits of laughter. Asked why he was crying he replied "cos I'm really really happy with you" :)
