Only a few days to go before Emily’s Christening

Emily’s Christening is in less than a few days and this week has been crazy with work, keeping Emily active and busy as well as doing a million other things that I didn’t really need to add to my week but had to do anyway. On top of that, obviously I decided to do the…

I read in the paper a few months back that a single mother was asking parents to pay £6 a head for their children to come to her twins 5th birthday party and she was ridiculed online for it. Ruma Ali, 29, asked parents to help with the cost of boys Shiyan and Kiyan’s celebration at…
