I don’t have the chuffing time!


1hr 45mins Most phones have the ability to check your screen time. Some break it down into how you’ve used that time, including the difference between ‘productive’ time and the other sort of time.

We were on a Facebreak…


In the last week of the school Summer Holidays my son asked me whether I asked his permission every time I put a picture of him on the internet. I answered truthfully, and with guilt.

Hooking through the Heatwave… For the Meadow School Balsham Craft Gift & Food Fair 2016!

Across the UK, crafters, makers and local producers are busy building stock for the flurry of Autumn craft fairs and farmers markets that mark the countdown to Christmas. Yes, I’ve mentioned it, ‘Christmas 2016’! If it seems too early for gift buying, spare a thought for the crafters who begin their planning and making before the previous year’s decorations have been packed away.
