15 Awesome Kids Tree House Ideas

We recently watched a programme featuring some incredible tree houses across the UK and Europe. Sure these were on a grander scale (like this suspended mirrored cube) and in some cases the cost of a small home! But no matter how fancy, their tie to the outdoors reminded us of the magic of creating a personal retreat, an idea that seems to […] Read more…

How To Cook The Perfect Steak With Jamie Oliver

It’s not often we have steak for dinner, so when we do we like to do it right! Cooking the perfect steak can be a challenge, which is why many of us choose to eat out at a steakhouse like Barbecoa for this treat rather than dare mess it up at home. However, we’ve decided to give it a go by seeking help […] Read more…

Our Stay At The Cary Arms “Inn On The Beach” Torquay

Since becoming parents, we’ve loved travelling with our children. Of course, we have the odd envious moment when we spot speedy couples striding by at the airport whilst we dig around for passports beneath the toys and colouring pads! However, there’s something so special and fulfilling about visiting new places with the boys, that it makes any long journey worth it.  We’ve […] Read more…

How To Embrace Mindful Parenting

When it comes to motherhood and parenting, the last person I expected to find myself inspired by was Don Draper. Let me explain: I hold no truck with his moral ambiguity or supremely molten attitude towards the truth – but I think he was onto something with the whole meditation epiphany thing. You often hear […] Read more…

DIY Crochet Baby Doll Basket Pattern | Chalk Kids Blog

DIY Crochet Baby Doll Basket

Ok so, I have a love/hate relationship with Crochet. I think it is a fabulous technique but many patterns and uses for it are dated. What I do love about Crochet is its beginnerbility (let’s pretend that’s a word).  So, with that in mind here is a super easy, speedy pattern for a wee baby […] Read more…
