Love in the Time of Lockdown

Here we are inching our way through lockdown and although we’ve had some ups and downs, this time of quarantine has genuinely been a good time for us. I’m surprised to hear myself say that but it turns out that not needing to get your kids dressed in a school uniform before dashing them out the door to get to school on time can do wonders for family life.Continue Reading

Remembering That Time We Won a Honeymoon to Mauritius

We got married back in 2010 in the midst of World Cup fever and the past ten years have flown by so fast. Sigh, such a cliche but so true.

She’s ‘real’ with all the bells and whistles that are important to a little girl (or boy) who wants a baby to call her own.Continue Reading

All Aboard with Thomas the Tank Engine Monkey Palace Set

What can we say about little boys and their trains? Although I don’t believe in ‘boy toys’ and ‘girl toys’, Judah and Ilan are the ones in our house who constantly ask for batteries for their birthdays and Christmas. Thomas the Tank Engine just doesn’t seem to go out of fashion. I remember my brother watching the show on TV when we were younger and the series is still going strong.Continue Reading
