  • On Turning Seven…

    Jess McGlynn May 13, 2016

    There is still some part of me which sits and thinks, ‘I can’t be the parent of a seven year old’ and then I glance across the room and see you, looking so grown up and so independent and then I think, ‘actually, yes I…

  • Going Home Grown

    Jess McGlynn May 12, 2016

    For a long time now I have wanted to start growing my own vegetables.  I love the idea of being a little bit more self-sufficient, and of getting to enjoy produce which we have managed to grow ourselves.Unfortunately, I am not the most green-fingered of…

  • Our Easter Holidays

    Jess McGlynn April 28, 2016

    It seems strange to be writing about things which are Easter related as the actual Easter bank holiday weekend seems so far ago now.  I can hardly believe that we are racing towards the end of April and then towards our summer…although whether that will…

    Jess McGlynn April 19, 2016

    Although it probably sounds terribly stereotypical, until we had Eli we hadn’t ever really explored the idea of superheroes with Meg.  It wasn’t something that she was interested in until Eli decided that he liked everything superhero related!  It was only then that we began…
