Last year I was involved in running a nativity themed treasure hunt at our estate Christmas event. I wanted to add some fun for the kids, but also bring in the real characters of Christmas. The idea was really simple. Give each child an envelope and hide the nativity characters around the estate (I provided … Continue reading FREE Nativity Treasure Hunt
I don't know about you, but I love a good kids magazine. It has the power to entertain your child for a good portion of the afternoon!

The one where they say your little baby son (or daughter) is now old enough to apply for a place at school. A place in Reception Class. I am filled with a mixture of excitement that my … Continue reading Choosing a school – am I a proper mum now!
Earlier today, facebook kindly reminded me that it has been a year since I started maternity leave. A year since I took 6 months off to be with my two boys and away from the safety of my job. It was a scary, but exciting, prospect as I have never been a good stay at … Continue reading FLASHBACK: Reflections on a year of missional motherhood
