Back to school - ban on term-time holidays?

I read in the news that the Government is thinking of making it illegal to take your child out of school for a holiday during term time. What? Have politicians got nothing better to do with their time? What about the state of the economy, the problems with the NHS, the financial climate and global warming for goodness sake.

Pixie make-up - a little fairy dust

What do you know - no posts for ages then two come along at once! Well I did say I try to squeeze as much into a day in London as I can.

Pixie make-up. This is not a brand I was familiar with until I attended their new product launch, along with hundreds (it seemed like) of other bloggers, most of whom were much younger than me and appeared to be much more au fait with the products.

Last week was a busy one in terms of launches and meetings - as I don't live in London I try to schedule as much as I can into each trip to the capital (train fares are not cheap). It makes for an exhausting day out and sometimes I do wonder why I bother, but I'm happy to report that this time the experience was worthwhile and interesting.
