It has come to my attention, that we have too much stuff in our homes, so i make sure i declutter at least once a month, taking all items i no longer need to my local charity shop, my husband was a collector and i used to be a horder but not any more, even my kids are onboard with decluttering getting rid of clothes they no longer need, books no longer being read ect.., its great to live in uncluttered home, i still have a little way to go before i can say we are clutter free but we are getting there.

It seems that some of the staff at a newly academised primary in the south of Croydon which is now being run by the Harris Federation need to go back to school, after a document outlining the strict new uniform regime was sent out with spelling and English grammar mistakes, including the dreaded grocer’s apostrophe.
The story from the first week of term about Harris Primary Academy Kenley –not to be confused with the existing, local authority-run Kenley Primary – has managed to make it into the national press, with The Guardian covering the latest row between Harris and the parents at what was until July known as Roke Primary.
Parents last week received a uniform list which included reference to “mohican’s” (used as a plural) and with “pinafore” spelt “pinnafore”.

I’m on the Sky News breakfast sofa tomorrow morning with the lovely Eamonn Holmes, discussing the increasing costs of raising a child.
Statistics released last week suggest that the cost of raising a child has risen 3% in the last year alone, and a separate report by insurance company London Victoria (LV=) claims that the cost of raising a child is 58% higher today than it was 10 years ago.
According to the LV= report, a child in the UK costs on average a whopping £222k to raise from birth to 21 years, or £10,593 a year:

I posted recently a Summer Reading List, of books about all things sustainable, and was contacted by a wonderful lady called Nicola Baird (who I met at the Ecover Message in our Bottle launch) about one of the books that she has written called Homemade Kids.
It really is great, and I wish someone had given me a copy when we were expecting BigSmall.
It would have opened my eyes to more sustainable ways of parenting, beyond simply using re-usable nappies.
