Nuts and bolts

On one of those interminable rainy days, at my wit’s end for what to do with my two young children I happened upon a box of assorted hardware. The lightbulb went on. I gathered the children around the table and gave them a pile of all shapes and sizes of nuts, bolts, screws and the like. They played with these for a good hour, while I had time for a tea and a breather. Just goes to show how desperation can sharpen one’s creativity and survival skills.

For those of you that can’t take another round of Wheels on the Bus, check this version. Ray of Light meets Partridge Family Bus.

Summer days

If you are new to Mums and Meres then Welcome! We are a community of English speaking mothers in France (and French mothers with an interest in English culture). This is a blog space for questions, ideas, exchange, playdate organisation and generally any of the trillions of things that you need as a mum in France (although we can’t help your kids sleep through the night, sorry)

If you are a Mums and Meres regular then check out the new posts in Just for laughs, Mama I’m bored, Tips and Tricks, Books and music and Local information.

And most of all enjoy these lazy, hazy summer days!
