Finger Fidget Spinner #Giveaway

Fidget Spinner

I was only introduced to the fidget spinner craze three weeks ago and we are already the proud owners of four. Much as some schools hate them and have banned them, I have found them a useful tool. Last weekend we headed to Brighton to the Fringe festival and instead of being glued to their DS or iPads on the journey, they were busy mastering tricks with their Fidget Spinners. If you have not seen a Fidget Spinner, they come… Continue Reading “Finger Fidget Spinner #Giveaway”

Airbourne, Eastbourne’s International Airshow!


My favourite childhood memory is being stood on the seafront watching the Red Arrows roaring across the sky in front of me with their colours of red, white and blue trailing behind them and my love of aircraft has stayed with me ever since.

I made the… Continue Reading “Some time for me with Mark Warner Holidays”

A Big Fat Fail!

Packed Lunch

All pupils at infant schools in England are to get free school lunches from this September, Lib Dem leader and Deputy PM Nick Clegg announced last year. The change – for children in reception, year one and year two – will save parents about £400 a year per child they said. Sounds great on paper doesn’t it? Although you can opt out of having free school meals we made the decision to sign Isaac up for them in the hope… Continue Reading “A Big Fat Fail!”
