Oh the irony of the content of this page! here I am, trying again in 2015 to rebuild a site I love more than any of my others!
Times have moved on again. Pud is now almost 17, Moo 15, Splat is almost 13 and Grumps is 10. They are all in school but Grumps will shortly be leaving and become home educated again. After the loss of Freddie we went on to have a son (not called!) Pickle, now 3. We don’t plan to send him to school.
After far too long dormant, MuddlePuddle is going to come live again. What started as an early years website, specifically aimed at 0-8’s, is still doing a great job but it got old and tired and we stopped updating it. In that time, the internet has grown and changed into something far more remarkable, with great resources for kids and their parents. I thought it was time to refresh the whole thing, make it easier to edit and, while keeping the best of the old content, replenish it with some new.
Here at MuddlePuddle Central, things have moved on too; Pud, the original MuddlePuddle chick, will shortly be 12, Moo is now 10 and Splat is nearly 8. But we still have a 5 year old, who never managed to get a MuddlePuddle name. Grumps would possibly be appropriate.
We hope you’ll enjoy the new content; our plan is to keep all the Early Years stuff in one place but add some older age group resources too so that it remains relevant to our family.
The original 2010 rebuild was in memory of our beautiful boy, Freddie 2/4/10-13/4/10, who was due the day after I finished the recreation of this site. Born 2nd April and lived for 11 short days before slipping away from us.
Night night, sweet little son. You were so much wanted.
