James and the Birthday Balloon review

Lucas loves to ‘read’ books and magazines and it is something I will always encourage. I love to read, there is something special about being swept away into another world through words and using your own imagination to bring it to life, not rely on someone else’s perception on screen. Nicola J Rowley offered to […] Read more…

It’s that time of year when all the adverts are even more pumped up with children’s toys or treats.

Lucas is a little clean freak when it comes to anything that picks up toys, hovers etc so this was an instant hit with him. Lucas really enjoyed pushing Dusty around as […] Read more…
