“I saw a bond there for the first time, that unbreakable sisters bond”

Today, hubby decided to treat the girls to a trip out. Originally it was planned that we’d head to the Riverhill Himalayan Gardens to visit the Yeti. P1 was very excited and although her behaviour has been atrocious lately, I was quite looking forward to the day out. I’d packed a picnic too! A last minute check of the website …

Summer Outdoor Dining Using Eggs – Shortcut Eggspert Challenge June

This months challenge was to create a dish perfect for outdoor dining now that the weather is positively warmer the majority of the time. Now I had a little problem with this because we don’t actually have a garden so I had to slightly adapt the challenge and created something we could easily take with us on a picnic. Hubby …

“P1s first school Sports Day”

Today was P1s first school Sports Day. As soon as I received the email notifying of the date/location/time that parents could come along, I experienced butterflies for her. If you’re a regular reader then you’ll know about P1s hypermobility and the way it mainly makes a difference to her physical abilities. Hubby and I had agreed that we wouldn’t be …

Pregnancy Diaries – 25 Weeks #3

The pregnancy seems to have slowed down and not speeding past as quickly anymore. There’s still 15 weeks left!!! This week my bump seems to be bursting and I’m using Bio-Oil and Baby Oil as often as possible. My belly button is stretching and becoming itchy which is a little terrifying as I really do not want what happened last …

There’s plenty of pregnancy apps. From ones that track your pregnancy with helpful hints and tips all the way to ones that you can post your bump selfies on. I’ve recently downloaded the Bio-Oil Bump Tracker. Bio-Oil itself is a trusted brand so I had high hopes for the app. It’s a free app and a very simple one to …

To My Princess 1 – 5 Years 6 Months

To Princess 1, This morning on our walk to school I told you that you were officially 5 and a half years old! It confused you a bit and sparked conversations about how many days until you’d be 6. The walk to school was refreshing, it was the only part of the day week month that you haven’t been rude …

“The bedtime war starts”

The GroAnywhere black out blind has been placed on the window, the blind pulled down over the top and the lights are dim. P1 is going to the toilet, getting herself undressed and brushing her teeth whilst I change P2s bottom and get her ready for bed. P2 is handed her half bottle of milk to drink whilst we read …

My BritMums Live 2014 Experience

At 1:39pm hubby and I jumped on the train to London Bridge. I’d been in a bit of a panic that morning, stressing about the size of my bag and that I couldn’t fit everything in one. I was being quite selfish! There was hubby carrying a rather heavy rucksack whilst I complained of my aching feet, again all my …

KBBF 2014 – The Benefits Of Breastfeeding

It’s National Breastfeeding Awareness Week (20-26th June 2014) and just like last year I’m joining in with the Keep Britain Breastfeeding Scavenger Hunt. Last year I wrote a post every day but considering I’m not currently breastfeeding and the fact it’s coinciding with Britmums Live, I’ve decided to do just two posts. When I look back to the very first …

Pregnancy Diaries – 24 Weeks #3

This week has certainly seen several changes in my body. I’ve experienced the deterioration of my poor hips. Nothing seems to relieve them now but I’m determined to push forward. It’s my last pregnancy and I will not let pain ruin it. Pffftttt. Sofa bound I am in the day. According to those around me I am noticeably pregnant now. …

Nabby Baby Monitor Review

As a parent, safety is very high on the list of priorities. Whether it’s preventing cuts and grazes, making sure they look before they cross the road and making sure they are safe in every environment. My biggest fear is when I’m not around and I have zero control over their safety. Night times to be precise. I wasn’t as …

One Million Milestone

I stopped checking my stats religiously a while ago. Right at the beginning I’d check every day, more than three times a day. Now it’s more like once a day or even once every two days. I tend to follow an average line of views a day. Today I checked my stats and was utterly shocked to see it was …

Pregnancy Diaries – 23 Weeks #3

Well I’ve basically outgrown my normal clothes, including my black leggings which were part of my pregnancy wardrobe with P2! They’re just so tight and restricting. This heat is ridiculous, beautiful, but limiting when I get dressed in the mornings. I don’t want to buy any new things but need loose and light clothing or I end up feeling like …
