Lapland UK review

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Lapland…

One of Elfie’s teachers pulled me aside this morning.
“Did you have a lovely time away in Lapland?” she asked. “Did you see the Northern Lights?”
I felt a bit embarrassed telling her that actually, we’d stayed in the UK all weekend, but had driven a couple of hours down south to Whitmoor Forest near Ascot, the home of Lapland UK.


Bed Wetting: The School Age Taboo

This post brought to you by DryNites®. The content and opinions expressed below are that of More Than Toast.
I’ve noticed as a mum there are still some topics that are taboo, even within circles of friends. We discuss so much with other mothers – education, health, relationships, POO – but there are some things that really still don’t get discussed.


Elfie: My #ARWOMAN

You may have seen the #ARWOMAN campaign floating around a couple of blogs recently.
It is a movement created by Atterley Road, whose goal it is to get women openly celebrating other woman.


Elfie Is 4! Again!

I‘d totally forgotten when I wrote about Elfie’s fourth birthday fails a couple of weeks ago that we’d get to do it all over again soon after: her birthday party!

And You Are The Girl With Small Hands And Big Eyes

Every time I read the poem ‘B’ by Sarah Key, I think of Elfie.
If I should have a daughter, instead of “Mom,” she’s going to call me, “Point B.” Because that way she knows that no matter what happens, at least she can always find her way to me.
It is beautiful, the most beautiful piece of writing I have ever read.


A Love Letter To Elfie

Apparently I’m unable to write about how much I love my little boy without going in to spasms of guilt that I haven’t done the same with Elfie. It’s true what they say, you know: you really never love one of your kids more than the other. You might like the one that doesn’t wake you up at 5.
