Competition – Eggnogg Colour-in Kit Bag

It’s almost time… school is opening it’s doors to children once more! I’m still rushing around like a headless mummy chicken (who apparently can still type) trying to make sure I have everything ready for Petit Boy’s first day at school and… I’m so totally not ready!


But good news for fellow mummies and daddies who are just as disorganised or forgetful as I am. I have a cool competition for you to win yourself a Colour-in Kit Bag. Well not for you, for your child! These bags are perfect for PE kits, swimming or for other sports related activities. But what makes them cool is your child gets to colour it in themselves with the fabric pens which come with it. So it is unique to them! And if you’re a bit of an green head like I am then you’ll be happy to know this is made from eco-friendly and ethically sourced cotton.


Former TV graphic designer, Kate Edmunds, became a full-time illustrator after the birth of her children. Greatly influenced by Tim Burton, Kate has always loved writing and illustrating her own children’s stories, conjuring up weird and wonderful characters. Her love of textiles is a bit of an obsession which she also incorporates into her designs. Eggnogg has grown from developing a range of greeting cards to keeping little people busy with a unique range of colour-in products. The products bring a fresh approach to colouring that both children and adults adore. The bold designs help challenge the senses and stimulate the imagination, offering a perfect solution to calming the rowdiest of children! Oh and did I mention is has won the award for ‘Best Innovation in Print / Message / Design’ at the Supreme Innovation & Design Award 2014

The Colour-in Kit Bag is priced at RRP £14.99 and is available to purchase directly from:

The Cost of Uniform?

I have been doing the uniform dance that all parents do around this time of the year. Rushing around buying the correct attire for their children to wear, their wallets begging “please no more!” as we rip them open again and take out what we need to pay the unforgiving cost for this outfit that they just wear. But why does it feel this way? Why do we feel as if uniforms are for those who can afford to look the part? Continue reading

One Week Til School

One week til my first born wears his uniform, his jacket and walks with me to the school gate for the first time.

One week til I watch him go in to his classroom and stay there for his first full day away from me and his family.

One week til I pick him up after school and hear about his first day, what he did, what he learned, who he met, how he feels.

One week til I have to let him go. Continue reading
