  • Independent and Creative | The Piglet Story

    Piglet is now 5, and I’ve previously written a post about her being adventurous, she’s a fearless soul and will often push the boundaries, but alongside this shes very independent, and we’ve noticed over the last 2 years that she is that classic creative child.

    Halloween in 2020 is going to be different, let’s face it, none of us has been able to do what we wanted to do this year but with Lockdown, Covid, restrictions and many challengers how would we be able to celebrate it? how would the kids still have some fun? That was the challenge this year, luckily in happened during our half term so that was a plus point to start off with.
