P1s Sports Day 2016

DSC_7860

I can’t believe that it’s the end of P1s journey as a Key Stage 1 student. She attends a Primary School but when I was her age this would have been her last year in the Infants. In just over six weeks time she’ll be entering the Juniors phase and things are going to get tougher. I always find it amusing …

Becoming Superheroes With Ella’s Kitchen

I am really bad at planning activities for the girls to do. I think that’s one reason I’m quite grateful for my blog because it pushes me out of my comfort zone with the opportunities we get. Recently we were sent a huge box of goodies from Ella’s Kitchen and challenged to recreate a super hero theme. Inside our box …

8 Best Theme Parks And Attractions In Madrid

DSC_7378

When you think Madrid city breaks, you probably think history museums and art galleries, architectural landmarks and fine dining. These all make it an alluring place to spend a weekend yourself, with friends, or with a partner, but with kids? You’re probably looking for something less cultural and more energetic. Luckily, Madrid won’t let you down – the city is full of …

Pirongs Unique Lifestyle Planner Review

DSC_7026

I used to a pretty unorganised person with my blog. I would spend so long trying to figure out what I had outstanding or even what the postman had brought me that week. Things got a bit crazy last year and I felt completely stressed out by it all and very overwhelmed. I needed a system and so I bought …

Oh my goodness, hands up if you’re loving this hot weather? I definitely prefer warmer weather over the cold weather. It makes me feel happier and more at ease with life in general. We still have a few more days left of school for P1 but P2 has already broken up for the summer holidays. We’ve started to put together …

Kids Bedroom Makeover Challenge With George ASDA

DSC_8043

Having three girls makes room decorating pretty simple as they all tend to love the same thing at the same time at the moment. We currently have all three girls sharing a room which they are outgrowing rapidly. We think our eldest has autism and so in an ideal world I would love for her to have her own bedroom. …

For a while now P1 and P2 have enjoyed a one night sleepover with my Mum over in Essex. It’s usually the first weekend of the month and it gave us a little bit of a break. It was never a full break because we had P3 and there’s only been a handful of times (if that) when we’ve managed …

#WhatsYourX – Sony Xperia X Mobile Phone Review

DSC_7787

I remember a time when for me, my mobile phone was my statement accessory. During secondary school if you still had a block like phone when the latest one was a flip, then you were classed as a bit of a weirdo. I don’t know what secondary school life is like nowadays but for me personally, I’m not overly bothered …

Reflecting On A Year Of Nursery

DSC_7566

It’s that time of the year when suddenly we realise there’s just a few weeks or even days left of the schooling year. It terrifies me every year but for some reason I’m feeling a lot more sentimental this time round as we wave goodbye to P2s very first year of nursery. I love her nursery and the setting has …

Trutex School Uniform Review

trutex uniform featured

One thing we have noticed about P1s personality and possibly due to autism, is that she finds clothing extremely uncomfortable and especially school uniform. Because let’s face it, who ever felt comfortable wearing their uniform?! Now this is thinking quite far in advance really but we were sent some Trutex school wear to review and you can find your local …

Teacher Gifts With Mantra Jewellery

To be honest I am quite glad to see the back of this school year. I really don’t know why but I feel like we need a fresh start in the motivational department. We most certainly need a break from early rushed mornings too. I’ve had various emails from the class reps about donations and cards for the teachers from …

How Much Should I Feed My Toddler? #rethinktoddlerportionsizes

I have always had concerns when it comes to what my daughters eat in a day. P1 is such a skinny little thing but tends to eat an incredible quantity of food so we were referred to a dietitian who assured us that we were doing the right thing. But more recently I have been faced with other worries surrounding …

Every first weekend of the month P1 and P2 head off for a one night sleep over with my Mum. This weekend will be P3s first experience of the sleepover as we’ve felt she was a little too young previously. The girls have their own special room and have been kitted out with a bed, but P3 doesn’t yet so …

Earning Her Brownie Hostess Badge

P1 has been a Brownie for four months now. I’ve been pretty sceptical about how long she’d stick mat it because I wasn’t a Girl Guide for long myself. However, she is thoroughly enjoying every meet they have and attends weekly. Being a Brownie is about exploring new hobbies, learning new skills and making new friends and I really think …

Our weekdays are so busy with one of the girls doing various activities or blog events, friends and playgroups. It’s hard to keep track of things and so when it comes to the weekend my head is telling me to spend it in my pyjamas doing absolutely nothing. But actually our weekends are precious because apart from the couple of …

My Experience Of #BML16

At 7:30am last week I was stood with Hubby at the train station after leaving our smallest baby in the car with my MiL. It was the first time we’d ever left her overnight before so both of us were pretty nervous. In fact I felt quite sick and had barely eaten from nerves but also excitement because we were …

For the first time in a while I actually feel content with the amount of effort I am putting in to my girls educations.

4 Perfect Outfits For The School Run

I am most definitely not a fashion savvy person. I throw on whatever is clean to be honest. I think my main issue is that I am so tiny, 4ft 8in tall, so I struggle to find adult clothes that actually suit my body shape and my confidence. Nearly my entire wardrobe consists of hand me downs from friends or …
