Yesterday, 1st July 2015, marked the hottest July day in the UK so far. Temperatures soared to 36.7C in many parts of the UK.

Lately, as I’ve been watching my chubby munchkin grow and thrive I have been wondering how we are going to cope without our Doona.

Bathing Three with Paddy’s Bathroom

Bath time is always a bit of a struggle in this house. Even before I didn’t have enough hands for each child of mine. As a baby, P1 hated having her hair wash and P2 screams blue murder every single bath time we have. P3 has been the odd one ou, enjoying the warm water and the splashing right from ...

To my Princess 3, You have now officially been outside longer than you were tucked up inside my tummy. You are 9 months old. It’s crazy to think that in just a few months time we’ll be celebrating your first birthday.

I don’t really have any words this week to accompany My Sunday Photo. We’ve had a week of mixed emotions between all three of the girls. Happiness, worry and of course love. I took this photo of P2 yesterday whilst she was watching her sisters play with the cornflour gloop we’d made. I just love it. Like this:Like Loading...

Kids Fun At Home with I MUNE NURTURE

We’ve been experiencing some pretty awful behaviour with P1 lately. I’ve been doing a lot of research about it because I desperately want to help her to control and understand her emotions as well as understand them myself. This weekend I’ve especially been changing the things we do. Normally we like to use the weekend to recooperate after a busy ...

My Detox With Slimming Solutions Teatox Review

featured teatox

I am still nowhere near my weight goal or my body image goal despite what people think and receiving the compliments is fantastic but it doesn’t stop how I see myself in the mirror and in photos. I don’t want to accept my body the way it is and I do honestly feel like that but I struggle with motivation ...

” P2 has been on a waiting list to attend a preschool”

featured

For the past 6 months P2 has been on a waiting list to attend a preschool. This wasn’t a decision that came lightly for us. The whole point of me being a stay at home mum and quitting my job nearly two years ago was so that I could be P2s primary carer. Considering I started my working life when ...

The Breadless Lunch Challenge with Bernard Matthews

featured bernard matthews

Our latest Bernard Matthews family panel challenge was to create a breadless lunch. It had to be imaginative but you couldn’t use bread, pittas or wraps. So we racked our brains and I came up with a cute little idea for this challenge, a jacket potato man! I know that lunch times are notoriously known for being something cold, but ...

Letter To My Princess 1 – 6 Years 6 Months

To my Princess 1, I’ve been really disappointed with your behaviour lately. To the point we’ve been to see the doctors because I know this just isn’t normal behaviour for a 6 year old. We have a few next steps and I hope that you are just in a very awful stage at the moment. You’ve been so doting on ...

“There’s now no need to wrap our toddler in bubble wrap”

IMG_4193.JPG

When P3 was born P2 went from a tiny toddler snuggled in my arms to this huge giant of a child. Since turning two she’s changed so much that it’s really scaring me. She’s no longer a baby in any sense and has become such a grown up and independent little sausage. The things she says are just immensely amusing. ...

Fitbit Flex Review

When I started my weight loss journey I was a bit of a virgin to anything health related and I certainly wasn’t bothered by how many steps I took each day. Gradually I’ve watched my weight slowly come down and I’ve been feeling far more energised recently. I’ve been wearing a Fitbit Flex for nearly two months now and I ...

5 Things That Make Britain Great

featured make britain great

What’s in a name? That’s a common question with people wondering just why certain things were given their names. Some are obvious, like coat hangers, but others are a bit more vague, like a tissue for instance. We give our children names based on the kind of names we like or sentimental value, like the names of our parents or ...

To P1, P2 and P3, I’ve just got back from BritMums Live 2015 and although the sessions I attended were great there’s one specific one that has left a bit of an imprint in my thoughts. It was about Your Child’s Digital Footprint. Whilst sitting in there I actually thought I was disagreeing with the speakers and some of the ...
