Clowning Around

My six-year-old daughter had especially requested a clown at her birthday party which we held recently, so I booked Wizzy Wiggy (aka Wizzy, Mr Wizzy etc.!)  Well, he really was brilliant and I can highly recommend him!!  Not only was he responsive to my Whatsapp messages, but he proved himself to be reliable and prompt.  From the moment he arrived, he had a captive audience

Fun in the Eternity Lab

Home Sweet Home!

Although it’s always great to go away on holiday, there’s nowhere quite like home for our little people, which makes coming back that much easier.  I love travelling, but I was actually looking forward to returning home…not only because we’re privileged to have the best climate in Harare and it’s much warmer here, but it was definitely time to get our little girl back into her routine (if you catch
