• Yoga, baby

    October 2, 2017

    All this talk of playgroup and baby groups has reminded me we’ve been enjoying the new Fearne Cotton children’s book, Yoga Babies… Disclaimer, we’ve ALL been unashamed Fearne Cotton fangirls in this house since this so her name initially sparked everyone’s interest, but we loved it.

  • Tummy time in the Night Garden

    April 26, 2015

  • Our new favourite children’s books

    September 20, 2014

    Like lots of children her age, Eliza loves to read. As well as her bedtime book-fest, it’s a staple daytime favourite too. Which is pretty convenient at the moment as it’s an activity that involves both of us sitting down (unlike dancing, spinning or jumping, which one of us really doesn’t like doing at nine…
