Believe it or not, it is actually during the school holidays that children cost parents the most amount of money – and not due to their desire for more toys. On average children cost their parents £2,000 a year in damages to the home by the time they reach the age of ten years old.

    Simple name wall decoration

    Ever since my eldest started to write her own name everywhere she also started to wish to have her name written in some way on her bedroom wall. So when I visited the local stationary shop and found this fab glittery cartoon with glue on the back I immediacy thought about my daughter wish. But how exactly should I do it? As you know I am not very good at crafting things so had to ask for my mum’s help. First I thought that we should cut out the letters out of simple cartoon and the cover them with the glittery one. But then we realised that we could just…
