Celebrating National Stationery Week

Going back to when I was a little girl (not too far back mind), I loved stationery. I had this massive collection of erasers. Dog shaped ones, character ones, ones that sit on top of your pencil, it was immense! As I have grown older my stationery obsession has remained with me.

Well I Didn’t Expect That! Said The Parents

There are things I have experienced since being a parent, that I would never had imagined possible pre-kids. Looking back to when I was younger (it’s not that long ago you know!), I think of certain luxuries things that I took for granted.
