Good morning, hope you all had a fab weekend. I expect many of you are doing the half term juggle of working and childcare, which is even more fun if like me you work from home! I find by working in the mornings and the promise of crafty or fun afternoons keeps my children happy, but often means working late into the night for me. How do you cope? Are you lucky to have a close friend to share childcare or grandparents on hand to help out?
Today I am thrilled to welcome Lucy, my soon to be 11 year old daughter, to guest post. She has been asking me for a little while if she can have a regular column here on my blog and I think her posts will be lots of fun, filled with book reviews, crafty things, baking and much more as Lucy loves reading, making and baking. So I shall hand over to Lucy.
For my first post I’ve decided to write about the perfect gift for an 11 year old. Since my birthdays coming up later this month I thought I might write about what I would recommend for children my age with a slight taste of adventure and craft. The items I’ve picked are from some of my favourite shops.
This is a mouse that can go anywhere with you. You can collect a house for the mouse and lots of other stuff.
This is a pretty bag for school.
I have thousands of notebooks and this would just be a beautiful addition to my collection.
Again I have thousands of badges but also I adore campervans.
I don’t have a phone yet but by the time some children are 11 they already have a phone or are lucky enough to get one for their birthdays. I think this case is so cute.
This tin is not too expensive and beautiful and comes from mine and my friends favourite shop, Paperchase.
These are only a few beautifully crafted items out there and I could have chosen many more!
Thank you Lucy you have chosen some lovely things, best I get shopping for your birthday! I look forward to your next post.
Have a great Monday everyone,
