Taking Holidays During Term Time

If you are a parent of school aged children you may well have seen the news today that the Supreme Court has ruled a Father who took his seven year old daughter out of school for a week to go to Florida broke the law.

If you go on holiday during term time, your child’s school may report you to the local authority – and if you don’t pay the fine you could be prosecuted. Essentially, let your child miss a day of school for a reason other than illness and you are committing a criminal offence.

Keeping your child’s favourite toy safe on holiday, with tips from Mothercare

New research from Mothercare has revealed that 69% of parents say their kid’s favourite cuddly toy is a must-pack holiday item.

For us, we can’t go anywhere overnight without taking Seahorse. He is Izzy’s favourite toy; she’s had him since she was 1 day old. He smells a bit funky, the pink fur has turned grey in places and the light up tummy isn’t as bright as it once was but she loves him regardless.

School’s out for Summer

Izzy finished pre-school on Friday. She is looking forward to going to ‘big school’ in September and she is definately ready for it – although she is going to miss her teachers. Luckily all her pre-school friends are going to the same infant school. I can’t believe how much she has grown since starting there two years ago – now she is a crazy, confident, outgoing 4 year old!

This week… 27 April – 3 May

Date Day
For weeks the Hubby and I have been looking forward to a date day. We got the train to Carlisle and went for lunch at The Last Zebra. Everything on the menu looked delicious but I eventually settled for the belly pork which was amazing. Hubby had the Cumbrian burger which was stacked high and looked epic. Of course we had to sample a couple of cocktails while we were there, starting with my favourite, a mojito.
