“It has been two years since I last had my hair cut”

featured hair cut

It has been two years since I last had my hair cut. Where we bleach it at home my hair is completely out of condition. I have split ends a plenty and I’m just so unhappy. It’s long, I like the length funny enough, but it’s nowhere near kept and tidy. My hair actually makes me feel quite self conscious and ...

“Playgroup was absolutely heaving with new people today”

IMG_2762.JPG

It’s been an odd day that seemed to start really early even though it actually didn’t. Hubby was up two hours before he usually is, the time I normally get up with P3, to pick his Auntie up from the airport with my MiL. I was left to watch four kiddies, get them dressed and give breakfast. Everybody was safely ...

Teething Troubles

IMG_2676.JPG

I find it a struggle to remember the baby days for both P1 and P2. Despite the fact I’m sort of reliving everything now with P3 I still cannot bring back the memories very easily. There’s something in particular that I’ve tried to remember because it feels so different this time round. Teething. I’m guessing that because it wasn’t such ...

I always feel so nervous when I travel to London even when I have Hubby there to guide and protect me. Yesterday was no different despite my excitement. P3 and I had been invited to London by the Babymoov team to get a peek at the brand new changing bags and watch the live fashion show be broadcasted from Paris. ...

The Gro Company Bunny & Brolly GroBag Review

featured

We are not strangers to The Gro Company. In fact both my girls have used them at some point for something. P1 & P2 both have the GroAnywhere Blind attached to their window to stop the bright evenings from disrupting bedtime too much. With P2 & P3 born in different seasons that means that at 7 months with P2 she ...

My Sunday Photo featured

When we chose to move out of our home county to a brand new one 18 months ago, our decision was swayed by the amazing community that we found over in Kent. There always seemed to be something going on, from craft fairs to christmas bazaars and horse charity shows. The people were genuinely friendly and would smile at you ...

Siblings May 2015

featured siblings may

I asked P1 today what she thought about being a sister and her answer was just one word, fun! I realised that through all the problems we’ve been having with them individually, as sister’s they do spend a lot of time laughing. I want the three of them to be absolute best friends but right at the moment P1 and ...

Parenting Three – 7 Months In

IMG_2424.JPG

We are nearly 8 months in from becoming a family of five. Having three children has changed our family dynamics and the way we live quite drastically. It came as a bit of a shock when I first found out that we were expecting number three and it took me a while to really come to terms with it. We’d ...

#JourneyToFit Linky Launch

featured

My fitness goal has really changed since I started my Healthy Habit with Juice Plus. When I first began I weighed 46.2kg and initially my journey was solely to lose some weight. Technically, my BMI was in the healthy range for my height so I didn’t really know how much I wanted to lose. I still don’t. In just over ...

Binky Bear Goes To London Gift Set Review

As a child, I loved teddies and soft toys. My kids have certainly followed in my footsteps of their love for teddies and we have only recently given around 4 bin bags full away. When I was sorting the teddies out I had clear piles; TYs, Disney and memorable bears/teddies. We were recently asked to review the new Binky Bear ...

I have taken a real back seat on the healthy eating and exercise thing which is certainly not what I wanted to do as I have a dress to fit in for a wedding in two weeks. But I have and I’m quite ashamed really. Yesterday, the postman delivered to me two exciting fitness related things for me; my new ...

I know that weaning can be a stressful time for any parent, I’ve been there twice before and have made it through all the good and the bad bits. I wanted to create a series of blog posts on weaning. Of course, I am not medically trained and my way is certainly not the right or wrong way to do ...

“Along trotted this small, scruffy looking dog. In a preschool”

IMG_2217.JPG

P2 has been on the waiting list for a preschool since January. I’ve soon come to realise that they are extremely sort after in this area and it’s clear that she probably won’t get a place until she’s nearer 3 years old. We decided to add her to a couple of the waiting lists. Not because we’re impatient but purely ...

McDonald’s Football Mum Of The Year Awards

We are yet to embark on the life of school clubs and other hobby related activities. P1 just isn’t that type of girl and certainly isn’t an active person due to her hypermobility. However, we were recently invited to a local Football Club to meet former Team GB Captain and Arsenal Ladies Defender Casey Stoney as part of the drive ...

Mixing Up Play with Petits Filous #MagicSquaresPlaydates

Being a stay at home mum has changed me. I never intended to be a stay at home mum. I wanted to be a working mum and be a role model for my daughters but our circumstances changed. I feel completely privileged to have the opportunity to watch my three daughters grow and be the one they solely depend on ...

Barbie Rainbow Makeover Hair Doll Review

featured

We’ve been having a bit of a difficult week with P1. It always happens after she’s been away for a weekend so when we received the Barbie Rainbow Makeover Hair Doll I was debating about whether she really deserved it. I’m glad I did give in though as it was also the day that her first ever tooth fell out ...

A Visit From The Tooth Fairy

P1 came home from school yesterday after being at her after school club. It was just after 6pm. Wednesdays are her longest days and sometimes I wonder how she physically copes with them but she enjoys it so much because her best friend goes. She got home and we gave her the brand new Barbie she has the task of ...

The General Election & The MADS Blog Awards

poll

So today, we packed the kids up and headed to our local polling station. I felt really nervous actually. I have no idea how the whole “politics” thing works and I certainly haven’t been following each party to know what they are promising. I woke this morning and had a quick look over each party’s websites to see if anything ...

Letter To My Princess 2 – 2 Years 3 Months

featured 2 years 3 months

To my Princess 2, I just can’t believe that you are 27 months already. In the scheme of things that is such a short amount of time yet it feels like you’ve been in our world for a lot longer. I cant believe how well you are progressing with your personality. You are such a cheeky little girl and you ...
