Siblings 2018 – August

This week it has suddenly dawned on me that we are rapidly approaching back to school. Already! I mean the weather has turned in the past week or so but we’ve had such a glorious summer and a huge part of me wants to freeze time and stay in this moment just a bit longer. I’m not sure that P1 …

BBC Countryfile Live 2018 – Our Photo Diary

I’m still in a sort of bubbly come down from attending BBC Countryfile Live at the beginning of August. The atmosphere and buzz was just incredible. We spent Thursday and Friday in the beautiful grounds of Blenheim Palace in Oxford. It was our first experience of a proper festival. I’m going to be honest and say that I don’t think …

The Play Beach At Marsh Farm

Marsh Farm Animal Adventure Park is a place that holds so many fond memories. Although a lot has changed since my childhood visits there with my School, my parents and grandparents, it still remains one of my top favourite places to take the girls. This time we had been lucky enough to visit Marsh Farm for their new Play Beach …

Our Scrapbook Summer Holidays 2018 – Week 3

Behind the scenes I am mentally exhausted. I have so many blog posts in the line up whether they be collaborative content or personal ones from the summer holidays. I’ve taken so many photos and filmed so many clips. I’m drowning a little bit. It’s becoming quite a struggle to balance having a great time, keeping up with housework and …

Shark Cordless Vacuum Review – Changing The Way I Hoover

I’m sure I’m not the only one to put my hands up and admit to not being joyous at the thought of household cleaning chores. As I’m sure you’ve guessed from the title I’m specifically talking about hoovering. We previously had a Henry. We had a strong loyalty to him, that thing sucks up everything! But he was and is …

You Are Never Too Young To Protect Your Child’s Dreams

I’ve been so excited to share this post with you all and finally I can. A month or so ago we were approached by the Post Office to help raise awareness of Life Insurance. It came at a really important time for our family so I was really interested in taking part. They wanted me to ask P2 some questions …

Crate Creatures Surprise

I’ve always loved to give the girls a little treat at the end of the school year. It’s my way of saying well done for such a busy year. It seemed super fitting that P2 would be given a monster, seeing as the card she signed for her Teaching Assistant was a picture of a monster with “A Thank You …

Our Scrapbook Summer Holidays 2018 – Week 1

Welcome to our summer scrapbook! It’s our first Sunday of the school summer holidays although technically we’ve already had two full weeks with P3. I thought it would be a great idea to create a roundup style post of each week of our holidays. The aim is to just showcase one photo from each day of the week with a …

A Summer Family BBQ Social

I should probably start by pointing out that this little afternoon adventure happened right at the beginning of July. I’ve been really struggling to keep up with life and blog stuff as the end of the school year approached. Our lives were just manic! I think I’m about ready to start documenting our experiences once again. My mother-in-law kindly invited …

The Beach At Bluewater 2018

What does summer time mean to you? For my little tribe it means longer days, ice creams, sand, shorts and sandals (Although Hubby is still refusing to embrace man sandals or flip flops so his feet are so pale!)! We adore summer here. Last year The Beach at Bluewater arrived for summer and we had a great time so I was thrilled …

Siblings 2018 – July

I’m going to dare to say it… Did you realise we are now closer to next Christmas than last Christmas? I know scary!! This month we have been blessed with amazing weather. The weather my little tribe was made for. It has allowed us to be so much more free with our adventures.  As my three girls grow older they are …

Creative Fun With Hama Beads & Giveaway

“Mummy can we do an activity?” Are the words that come out of my darling middle daughters mouth every single day. We once had a pretty extensive crafting/activity cupboard around Christmas time but with P2’s relentless requests that supply has gone down rapidly. We are working with DKL over the next few months to showcase some of their amazing toy …

Revamping The McDonald’s Happy Meal

I am definitely not ashamed to admit that my family love a McDonald’s. We don’t go often but I think it’s a great treat for the girls and have always loved the food. I was lucky enough to work with McDonald’s to go behind the scenes in one of their restaurants, hear about future plans (one of which happened to …
