“When should my child have an eye test?” was a question I fielded several times a day back when I was a registered optician (less than a year ago). The answer varies, depending upon circumstances (and sometimes preference of the optometrist in store on the day!) but usually the answer is about 4 or 5. It … [Read more…]
This is my boy. He’s suddenly found that he can stand and instead of attempting to walk (which should be the next natural step) he has become the master of emotional dance! You’ll need to volume on so you can see how his moves change with the music

I’ve crocheted another mermaid tail for my Etsy shop, I’m hoping to do a few more. This one is up to age 8 and I have one made with really posh wool for a tot that’s already on there. It won’t go up tonight because I’m too tired but I wanted to show off!
