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.

Chocolate Hux
Single Life

The Divorced Home

Last night I told Hux off for ripping a page out of his book. He started crying, as you do when you’re a slightly guilty three year old, and buried his head in his pillow. He then sat up, looked and me and tearfully shouted “I want my daddy to take me home!”.
Oof. I was heart-broken.


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.


Now You Are Three.

It’s an odd thing, your baby’s birthdays. Elfie’s are one thing; as the eldest she’s the birthday trailblazer, demanding parties in village halls or Pizza Express and spending hours wondering if she’s going to dress up as Anna or Elsa.
Hux is different. He still doesn’t ‘get’ birthdays so mama makes the decisions (as well as the cakes).


Toddlers Today – What Does It Mean To Be A Toddler?

I always think it must be pretty cool to be a toddler in 2015.
Just think about it – you get to spend your weeks playing with your friends, being entertained by various singing and dancing adults, getting taken to really cool places like working farms and swimming pools and you don’t have to worry about Council Tax or how many miles to the gallon your car is doing.


Hux Turns Two

It’s been a busy time over at ours these last couple of weeks. Hux had a birthday and turning two meant that he can start going with Elfie to pre-school a couple of days a week. Where has my baby boy gone? The night before his second birthday I went up to Elfie and Hux’s shared bedroom to tuck them both in.


In Which I Go Gooey Over My Little Man

The relationships we have with our children, they are complex and frightening things. Even moreso than the relationships we have with other adults (and I’m speaking as someone who spilt apple pie over her divorce petition last night, so yeah… complex).
I feel quite different about the relationship I have with Hux than the one I have with Elfie.
