Smiling like Sunshine

Hello September

Hello September! Although I love the summer months and we had a great time, I am also excited for the new season to start. September means a fresh start: New beginnings to the school year with the children, you come back from holidays energetic for work, ready to get my planning hat on and really think about how I want to develop my freelance work.
The children's school is starting next week. All the school shopping is done, uniforms are washed and ironed. School shoes bought, everything is labelled. Lunch boxes, water bottles ready!
Whilst shopping I also popped in to House of Fraser. As you know they stock a great range of brands to suit every budget. We are still enjoying the sunshine but it won't be long till the chillier days. Following up from my post about the House of Fraser challenge I have written a few months ago, I checked out the men's accessories. My husband always seems to need more socks! He especially loves the Paul Smith range. Lovely little surprise for hubby as they were on sale, too! My son is gutted that he can't wear colourful socks at school.



Seems like, it is only myself I haven't bought anything for. Well, I will be looking forward to my childfree time when I can go shopping on my own and enjoy some  "me-time" :-)

Coding for Teachers

As we are very interested in coding,I did not hesitate to share this infographic when I was approached by the lovely people at Education Umbrella. Defne (9yo) loves coding and uses the websites mentioned below all the time. She has been very lucky to have teachers who supported her interest in coding. I hope this infographic helps teachers as well as parents if you are homeschooling or just want to support your child at home. Coding for Teachers

Take me away...

Take me away...

With only a few weeks till the half term, we  are getting excited with the preparations of a short holiday. This spring has been cold and rainy and we can't get to go away and enjoy the sunshine.
I have put together our must have gadgets for the summer. The Tech21 Iphone 6 case  comes in different colours. I love this pink one, perfect for the summer! The Fox Eye Mask is great for having a little snooze, especially for little ones who don't normally like wearing eye masks! I am obsessed with Liberty prints so I chose a Libery passport cover. The other essentials are all from Boots.
Roll on summer! We can't wait!
