The Importance of the Honey Bee – with a Quiz

I have to say I am very cautious of the bee’s that fly around our garden. It comes from the fear of their sting which can be very painful. E is also equally as cautious, we have told her when she see’s a bee to just leave it alone and let it get on with its work. Bee’s are very important, they pollinate crops which helps us to grow food. Without the honeybee there would be a massive decline in the production of food crops. This would affect us and also many others that are dependant on the crops. Without bee’s there would be a huge chance of a world famine. Because oh how the bee’s cross- pollinate if they were to go extinct it would affect the cotton production, which affects us all. Clothing production would change and become more expensive. As you can see the humble bee is… View Post

Of all the skills your child masters as they grow, one of the hardest is managing their bladder. Some children seem to master it without a problem but other children struggle.

Win a £500 Voucher with Rattan Direct

I love having a nice large garden for the kids to play in. When we started looking to buy a house one of the important requisites was that it had a decent garden. The only down side to a garden is the gardening, neither of us have green fingers. But after looking at the mess for a few years we have started to sort out the garden. We want it to be a safe place for the children to play but somewhere that looks good and is a haven to relax. What we really need is some lovely outdoor furniture. Somewhere we can sit as a family to eat and relax. And somewhere where I can drink a nice cold glass of wine on a warm summers evening. To celebrate the beauty of gardens in the summer months – when the sun shines. Rattan Direct are running a fantastic competition… View Post
