Today the 5 year old was off school sick. So I made sure we had plenty of Christmas activities to do. We watched the Christmas film 'The Snowman', we did some deco-art and we made some salt dough Christmas tree decorations and snowmen.   We bought some Christmas cookie cutter in John Lewis to make a snowmen, Christmas trees and some holly. http://www.johnlewis.com/creative-party-tree-cookie-cutter-green/p2667567 http://www.johnlewis.com/creative-party-snowman-cookie-cutter-white/p2667570 http://www.johnlewis.com/creative-party-holly-leaf-cookie-cutter-green/p2667568 How [...]

Nanny Contracts Some nannies are not always certain about what things should be included in nanny contracts. It's important to have a contract with your nanny family, like any job. It's also important that we get what we are legally entitled too as well. Here are some points that you should look out for. This would also be helpful for potential nanny employers.
