‘Eventcrashers’ aka Good Sh*t Happens

It’s no secret amongst our closest friends that my sisters and I have always managed to find ourselves rubbing shoulders with celebs and VIPs. An after-party in Tape, London or enjoying a VIP table in Ibiza. We’ve been there and we’ve done it, usually a combination of timing, luck and connections, but now it’s time…

Activity Idea: Moroccan Tiles

There’s nothing we love more, when walking through the medina, than popping our heads through unassuming doorways to peek at the beautiful riads hidden behind them. The highlight has to be the detailed Moroccan mosaic tilework, known as zellige. The boys love seeing the different coloured patterns of the zellige and asked me to create…

LL Shorts: Education in Morocco

We’ve had an interesting experience trying to find the right school for our family here in Marrakech. If you’re thinking of sending your child to school in Morocco, here are the top 5 things you need to know: What type of school? There is a public education system here but the class sizes are large…

LL Shorts: One school, two school, home school, world school.

Many of you who have followed our unschooling/home education journey so far are properly wondering why I’m sending the boys to school here in Morocco. Firstly, let’s get one thing straight, I’m not anti-school, I’m anti bad school. I would only send my children to a school if I truly believed that school could do…

LL Shorts: 5 Minutes Peace

Has anybody read the book ‘Five Minutes Peace’ by Jill Murphy? It was my favourite book as a child because I could relate to the children in the book bothering mum trying to have a bath and a few minutes to herself. I’m now that mum and it’s tiring, it’s exhausting being a parent trying…

Accidents, Emergencies and General Health

You know those stories you hear about a kid sticking a piece of Lego up their nose and you say to yourself ‘my kid would never do something that dumb.’? Turns out, my kid would! B (3) casually walked up to me and said ‘Mummy, can you help me get this out of my nose…

LL Shorts: Language

We are fairly settled into our new summer routine now, the boys are in the pool at least twice a day and have become firm friends with the other children in the community. The children are around 7-9 years old and I’ve noticed that they will try to talk to the boys in French first,…

LL Shorts: Worldschooling

I love London, I think it’s a great place to bring up children. Little Londoners was born out my desire to share all the amazing and affordable activities my hometown has to offer families. However, hitting rock bottom made me realise that something needed to change. I couldn’t and wouldn’t want to change our education…

LL Shorts: Rock Bottom

What’s it like to hit rock bottom and where do you go from there? I’ve hit it before, or so I thought but I’m really there now and there’s no way out. I knew it was coming, it was inevitable. Here I am, a single parent home educating my SEN child. The business I was…
