Her Fourth Birthday & Going Horse Riding

I definitely think that this year has been the first year that P2 has fully understood and felt the excitement of her own birthday. For weeks and months actually, she’s been excitedly telling me that she was going to go horse riding and that she’d be able to change her number from three to four. She had started added things …

How to Pest Proof Your Home

Unwanted pests such as bugs, creepy crawlies and rodents occasionally invite themselves into our homes, wreaking havoc and leaving us feeling like our home isn’t quite as clean and secure as we’d like it to be. But, many of us struggle to know how to deal with a pest problem, particularly if traditional measures don’t sit well with your values …

AmiGami Craft Party

To make P1s Easter Holiday that little bit more special we were sent some pretty amazing AmiGami sets so that she could host her own craft party with up to 10 of her friends.

I want you to think of a world without animals. You can’t? Nope neither can I and neither can Mothercare and that’s why they are donating 4% of the sales of their new Tusk range to the charity, Tusk. I’d never heard of Tusk before. It’s a charity helping to support the conservation of wildlife, sustainable development and education in …

Lion Hudson Children’s Books – Missing Jack by Rebecca Elliott

I’ve always been a book lover. These days books are heading towards becoming only digital editions, but for me there’s nothing better than physically holding a book in your hands. Having three daughters makes it super difficult to find time to sit and read, so my extent to reading is online blogs and magazines. However, my girls are following in …

Sweet Dreamers Ewan The Dream Sheep Review

Regular readers will know that I’m an owner to a toddler that has struggled for 20 months to self-settle so I’ve been trying my hardest not to make the same mistakes with P3. I rarely allow her to fall asleep feeding and will always put her back in the SnuzPod at night. In all honesty P3 has been a fantastic …

“All the different things they can learn from a garden is incredible”

When we went house hunting having a garden was never very high on our priority list. Now the weather is stunning I’m slightly regretting our home “check list”. P1 has always been a garden girl, she spent a lot of time helping her Great-Grandad in his garden and she’s always happiest when able to play outside with her toys. As …

“The weather has been truly glorious this past week!”

I’m going to jinx this so I apologise in advance, but the weather has been truly glorious this past week! We aren’t lucky enough to have a garden with our house so getting outdoor time has been tricky. We are fortunate enough to have a few parks and a nature trail nearby and we’ve made full use of those lately. …

We had a busy day yesterday. Out from 11-6. We went on a nature trail, fed the ducks and then visited family. We arrived home feeling quite tired and needing to get dinner on before bedtime only to find out the house had been invaded by ants!! It isn’t the first time it’s happened. About a week ago they started …

“Both of us grew up with animals around us”

I’ve always had a love for animals. I’ve always respected them even if sometimes they didn’t respect me. As a child, my earliest memories, I’ve been surrounded by various animals. As a child, I grew up with a mum who’s career was a veterinary nurse. We actually lived attached to a veterinary clinic… When I say attached I mean part …
