“Spring has sprung in the hundred acre wood” – A.A. Milne.

Yes, it’s nearly spring! What a fabulous time of the year. I was running the usual after school `taxi service’ the other day and I decided to go for a walk as I had a short break between dropping off child 1 and picking up child 2! I wandered along a path next to a reserve which was full of native bush. The smell of the new flowers and foliage was amazing! It occurred to me after, that the best things in life really are free. In a 30 minute spell, I managed to grab some quiet time, soak up some gentle afternoon sun, exercise, strrettcchhhh and overload the senses to a degree that only I could appreciate in that moment. In this month’s newsletter we spread the word to all mums and mums-to-be about enjoying a little downtime whenever possible, so that your whole day can run just that little bit more smoothly. JM

We have discovered a wonderful story today which we thought you would all enjoy. It’s not quite the hundred acre wood location, but it does involve a bear that clearly knows and appreciates the benefits of indulging in those mother-to-be little luxuries. We hope you enjoy!
