Little Sis has been really enjoying herself in Reception. She has made loads of friends and is learning so much. She has been writing her name properly (no more capitals A’s in the wrong place!) and bringing home lots of drawings every day.

This is the picture she brought home today. Boobies. Not quite sure what they’re teaching her anymore….

How to update a denim jacket

I love embellishing my clothes to make them a little bit different. A few weeks ago I saw some alphabet patches by Jennie Maizels in Hobbycraft and knew they would be perfect for a little project.

I’ve admired Jennie Maizels style for a while. My daughter loves her clothes patches and seems to deliberately make holes in her knees so she can pick a pretty patch to go over them! Each letter in Hobbycraft was only a pound each so I picked the letters for my daughters name. The only problem was I didn’t have a jacket so I hunted one down on eBay and waited for it to arrive.

When it finally did I got to work. The letters were easy to apply with the help of an iron.

I took it to school at pick up so Little Sis could wear it home. She liked it a lot!

Decluttering with a 4 year old

Little Sis has been finishing early this week so we have been slowly working through her bedroom. You can barely see the floor so it has long been overdue a sort out. I tried to persuade her to give some of her unwanted toys to the charity shop but she’s not quite ready. Instead we sorted out her clothes drawers which were overflowing. We gave 27 tshirts to the charity shop! There were also lots of jumpers, dresses and trousers she had grown out of.

Then we got to work on her cuddly toys.


Most of these live in her bed (or underneath it).

We went through every single one but I have to admit the give away pile was very small. Only 5 went to the charity shop and the Peppa Pig ones are off to her baby cousin.
