Do you encourage your children to keep a journal?

As a child I never kept a diary.  I never thought to write down my feelings in to a book.  to jot down the everyday things that happened and as an adult I really wish I did.

I really want to encourage my boys to keep a journal and they both have a three year one with prompts for a simple answer each night.

Mini is like me and has a real love for stationery and when sent us some of their remarkable range (stationery that used to be something else) he claimed it for himself.  He has been using it to write notes, plan out his fantasy football team and challenge himself with sums.

He personalised his book with some fab Washi tape from Scotch tape and carries it around with him.

He can often be found curled up with this notebook and pen in hand and it melts my heart.

I am really grateful to the stationery sent my Memotec, as it means that he can indulge in his love of stationery too (he is just like his mummy with that love)!

Do your children keep a diary or journal?

Dumping the tumble dryer and Ecoforce giveaway

We have a tumble dryer, but it broke before christmas and we  couldn't afford to get it repaired, so I have been managing with an old fashioned wooden clothes rail and hanging bedding over the doors to dry, This last would of weeks however, I have been hanging the washing outside and it has been drying much quicker and with less creases, so I am going to take the plunge and instead of getting the dryer replaced I am going to give it away. Ecoforce heard me on twitter bemoaning the fact that I was chasing laundry round the garden as my pegs were not working and very kindly sent me some of their Ecoforce pegs to try and they have been fab. So in conjunction with Ecoforce I have a year's supply of green cleaning and washing up wonder products worth £50 comprising the following: EcoForce Peg Basket x 1 EcoForce Clothes Line x1 EcoForce Pegs x 2 packs Several of each of: EcoForce sponges, scourers, cloths, duster and bag grips Dishmatic Dishmatic Refills x
