Siblings 2017 – November

I am very late uploading this. In fact I think it’s the latest I’ve published my Siblings post ever! It’s been a hectic month for us as a family with lots of adventures and settling in to our new home. Generally life seems the busiest it has ever been and I’m struggling to juggle everything. P1 has been leading a …

Marsh Farm Father Christmas Experience 2017

I know, I know, it is still November but last weekend we dusted off our Christmas jumpers and headed back to Essex for the Marsh Farm Father Christmas Experience. This is my most favourite Christmas event of the year and you have absolutely no idea the amount of excitement I felt that morning. It felt like Christmas had come. The air …

Kitchen Tour | House Reveal #1

This is the first of our house reveal posts and videos. I am so excited to share what our new home looks like now that we are settled and unpacked. I still can’t believe that we have been in this house for four weeks already. So much has happened. This is our kitchen tour. The kitchen was empty of appliances, …

#MySundayPhoto – Home Sweet Home

Something just didn’t feel right in our old home but now I feel content for the first time ever. This house, the effort and the love we’ve put in has just helped us settle so quickly. We had meant to have some friends over on Saturday but plans got changed last minute. It gave us the perfect opportunity to spend …

Win A Free Jump Session At Jump In Trampoline Parks Tonbridge!

There’s no denying it. We are huge fans of Jump In Tonbridge. I actually am starting to feel a bit like it’s an extended family or even that I’m melting in with the furniture. We go to Jump In nearly every week but when the house move happened, we took a break and my gosh it felt like a pretty …

You Never Think It Will Be Your Child

Bullying is something that happens in every school. It’s a part of learning boundaries, personality clashes and bad behaviour. As a parent you hope that your child will never be bullied, that they are kind to everyone and that you never have to be called in to the Head Teacher because of an incident involving your child and someone else’s. …

#MySundayPhoto – Daddy’s Girl

“Mummy you are always angry!” “Daddy you are lovely!” That pretty much sums up my entire week in a nutshell and it’s devastating. I think it’s natural that one parent is more strict than the other, and clearly that is me right now. Or that’s what the girls are perceiving it as. P3 has always been my little shadow but …

#MakeTracks With A Family & Friends Railcard This Autumn

I pop on a train quite frequently for blog related shindigs but it’s actually quite rare for us to go with the kids or as a family. A few months ago I took P2 by herself to London and she had such a brilliant adventure that it made me want to experience train adventures more often.  We was asked by …

Before You Fly: Keeping Kids Happy at the Airport

Keeping the kids happy is one of the most important factors involved in enjoying a happy and relaxing vacation. But trips can often get off to a bad start when the kids start acting up at the airport. So how should you go about keeping them happy when there is so much waiting around and walking to do? Here are …

Going To The Park With Bassetts Multivitamins #nodulldays

During the summer it is easy to get out and about with our children. The warm weather makes us want to be out in it exploring and going on adventures. As autumn sets in, the days get colder and the sun setting earlier gives us shorter daylight hours, getting outside becomes much more of a chore. The Department Of Health …

#MySundayPhoto – Half Term

Half term seems to have vanished before our eyes. I think that’s because we have only had the girls for half of the time they had off so we’ve barely had a chance to do anything or go on many adventures. It’s Sunday now and we are actually enjoying (hopefully) a day out in London as this goes live but …

Christmas Gifts For Under £5 With #sdfiverchallenge

For me Sports Direct is associated with my husbands pants and socks. He won’t buy them from anywhere else. We was recently challenged to find some Christmas gifts online for under £5. To me five pounds seems like such a small amount of money to find any decent gifts so of course I was up for the challenge. I couldn’t …

#MySundayPhoto – Taekwondo Exam

I’ve failed at the second week of uploading My Sunday Photo on time. Ok granted it is still Sunday but I’m writing this very late. I have been poorly all day, I’ve caught what my girls have had all week which they’ve so kindly passed to me now. We are child free for four nights and we are half way …

5 Ways to Cosy Up Your Bedroom with Blackout Curtains!

Blackout curtains are thick, heavy curtains that block out unwanted daylight from bedrooms. They are most often thought of as being used by people who work the night-shift or who follow irregular working patterns. However, nothing can be further from the truth! Anyone can use blackout curtains, or blackout blinds, and almost everyone will reap some benefit from doing so: …

P2’s First Parents Evening

I just love how things are getting technology based and that you can now book parent evening slots online now! So much easier. We teased P2 about parents evening from the moment we booked it. We kept asking her whether her teachers would tell us that she’s been naughty and cheeky. Don’t worry, she found it funny. I had been …
