Our Wild Northumbrian Adventure

I’m snuggled upon a bed fit for a princess…the most magical four poster bed, with posts made from the trunks of silver birch, wrapped in twinkling fairy lights….Arthur is sleeping soundly beside me, Dan is laid across the bottom of the bed, engrossed in a book, Ollie is sleeping on the floor, beside the fire….the…

Our Lake District Adventure

I spoke in my last post about my New Year Intentions. One of the most important ones for me was adventure. To be precise, more of them!

Why I Choose to Home Educate.

The summer holidays are nearly over for most families. We went to the park today and I overheard parents say the same thing a few times over…’I can’t wait until the kids are back at school!’.
