Adelaide Fringe with Grandkids

Being a mum to two little girls, it has been so lovely watching them form a close bond with their grandparents. It fills me with such warmth to see my parents and in-laws enjoying activities with the girls, and the kids excitement every time they see them (even if it’s 5 days in a row!). Most grandparents I know are absolutely incredible. They have masses of energy, endless cupboards of Yoyo biscuits, and brilliant story-telling voices to...

Toys from a distant (but not forgotten) past

A few weeks ago my mum cleaned out the shed. I don’t know if this will resonate with you, but our shed represents an insane amount of my family’s left over gear. Things like uniforms, yearbooks, kids toys, sports ribbons and medals, diaries (eeek!) and so on. The thing I want to talk about is the toys. I mean, wow. There were some ridiculous toys in that shed! Mum had decided to donate anything we no longer wanted, which was pretty much...

Dora Gild Playground Clarence Park

Dora Gild Playground is a great little play space hidden at the end of Churchill Ave in Clarence Park. We have been there a few times and really enjoy it – with plenty of options to keep a range of aged kids busy for a while. It is great for those with older and younger kids as there are separate areas suitable for either the toddler age or 5-9 year olds, but they are close enough that parents can keep a good eye on everyone at the same...
