Welcome to Bovis Village!

Today J asked for me to recreate a play activity that we had done over a year ago. I didn’t think it had been that big of a deal, but it seemed to have made an impression on him and he wanted it done again, so we did. It has been a fab day! The… Continue reading Welcome to Bovis Village!

“Autumn leaves are falling down, falling down, falling down…..”

Wowzers – it is chilly!!!! My celebration for the delivery of oil was short-lived – our boiler has packed in 😦 Soooo thankful this evening for all those blankets Mrs. McKnight (work colleague at BCM) knit for my kiddies!

With a baa, baa here and an oink, oink there!!!

We’ve been taking part in Virtual Book Summer Camp and this summer and have been really enjoying it! We LOVE books around here anyhow, but having a wee push to ‘make more’ out of our books has been great AND it has meant that we have read some books that we would never have heard of, thanks to their lovely… Continue reading With a baa, baa here and an oink, oink there!!!

His eyes are orange, his tongue is black; He has purple prickles all over his back……

So the wonderful buzz of my phone vibrating off my mobile phone woke me at 7am, (there’s no way that bad boy can make a proper alarm sound – do not want to wake the munchkins until absolutely necessary!) I have been getting up at 7am for 3 months now to spend time ON MY OWN… Continue reading His eyes are orange, his tongue is black; He has purple prickles all over his back……
