On Safari to Abu Dhabi

Given we spent three months apart during the initial move, and, since our arrival, Pilot Daddy has been studying like mad during his training period, we thought it apt to celebrate passing his line check with some quality time with the bubs.   1,001 more words

Art Camp @ The Playhouse (Rochester)

We had previously blogged about an Art Camp which The Playhouse at Rochester was organizing for the September school holidays. In fact 2 readers of our blog also won a 2 day Art Camp package which I hope their little ones enjoyed because I know my little one (Jah) did. 474 more words

Getting Spectacles for Jah - The Ups and Downs

So yes after that trying morning at the eye centre, we were told that Jah needed to wear glasses for his astigmatism.
