We a-dora Dora!


From left – mine, Fran’s, Amelie’s and Maddy’s Dora the Explorer. Maddy naturally had to add some embellishments!

Quote of the day from Amelie
“Mummy, i know what your daddy does for a job. He bites newspapers!”

“Erm, no… he WRITES newspapers darling – but close!”


This was a home educating blog. Then it became a grief blog after our baby son died at 11 days old. It was always a craft and play blog. And a blog written by someone who ran a small craft and toy business. Now I'm doing up my house. It's all change - again. Merry Raymond

    We have had a sudden increase in Dora appriciation in the last month. LOL at Maddy and her keen eye. I just don’t notice anything. Aaliya looked at Samee in his orange short p.j’s the other morning and said ‘Dora has shorts like that’. All I could mentally counjour up of her was how her head is so much larger than anyone elses, including her parents.
