What kit do you need when you join a Swim Club?

Swim Club

Isaac started swimming with a swim club back in January last year and the improvement in his swimming has been outstanding. What no-one does warn you when you join a swimming club, is just how much the extra’s are. I was expecting the monthly fees, but on top of this are annual membership fees for Swim England, the equipment the kids are expected to have and race / gala fees. Last month, Eliza was awarded her 800m swimming badge and… Continue Reading “What kit do you need when you join a Swim Club?”

Ariel Styling Head Review

Ariel Styling Head Disney

Like many girls Eliza’s age, she has suddenly become interested in the way she looks. Since her first visit to a proper hair salon, Eliza has been obsessed with doing her hair and has been practicing putting her hair up and adding pretty clips, bows and bands in her hair.

It has been a real workhorse for us, printing homework, work things for Hubby and posters and raffle tickets for PFA activities. My one frustration with it, is that it was unable to print anything larger than A4 size, but now Epson have released their Epson EcoTank ET-7750 and we have been sent… Continue Reading “Epson EcoTank ET-7750 Review”

Learning to Swim with Individuality Swimming


I am a firm believer that all children should be taught to swim and my kids have all had swimming lessons since an early age. With the older kids, we enjoyed lessons at local-authority run pools and whilst the teachers were great, the better the kids swimming got, the bigger the classes and I felt they were not progressing as well as they should. When Isaac was 5, we started lessons with Ruth, who soon became his favourite swimming teacher… Continue Reading “Learning to Swim with Individuality Swimming”
