Our Easter Saturday At National Trust Bodiam Castle

For somebody who didn’t feel very Easter-y this year, we ended up doing quite a few Easter themed activities. Our Easter holidays were pretty much jam filled with different things for us to do and now we are back to school runs. I feel we need another holiday to recover from the Easter holidays if I’m honest. Our Easter weekend …

Adjusting To Warmer & Longer Days

Hands up if your Easter holidays were full of fun and warm weather? My hands are definitely up. I am a happier person when the weather is kind to us and my daughters adore being outside exploring. We don’t have a garden for ourselves so we had to find places to visit for pretty much every single day and I …

A Weekend Of Fun For Hubby’s 27th Birthday

The weekend before last saw my husband celebrate his 27th birthday. Due to the fact that we tell each other absolutely everything, I didn’t have any surprises up my sleeves for him. In fact he made our weekend plans and I am so glad he did because he found such a wonderful place to visit. Swanley New Barn Railway has …

Mother’s Day 2017

I totally realise that I am super behind on publishing this. But I felt like I couldn’t just ignore Mother’s Day like it never happened because it did. I had a relatively normal Mother’s Day, normal in the sense that it fell on a Sunday, I lost an hour of sleep and my middle daughter woke me several times in …

Feeling Broken

Today I was meant to be heading off for a coffee morning with the mums from P1s school. They don’t get organised very often and I am definitely not in contact with them as much as I’d have hoped. I think I’m a bit of a stranger to be honest especially now the drop offs in the mornings are super …

A Country Walk At Lullingstone

I am so incredibly pleased that we have seen the back of winter now. Although saying that it still seems super freezing outside doesn’t it?! A week or so ago, we were graced with some sunshine and it finally felt bright and summery. (The photo above is courtesy of my aspiring four year old photographer – P2!) We decided to …

Going To The Library

It feels like such a long time ago since reading a story at bedtime felt like a chore. I never used to see the importance of books despite my own love for reading and writing. But I also experienced mum guilt surrounding the topic of bedtime story time and eventually I made it part of our routine. I don’t feel …

Siblings 2017 – March

We’ve finally been busier this month and with the weather warming up on the most part, I’ve had an enjoyable month. The girls are getting more opportunities to bond with each other which is always welcome. We’ve had a few travel opportunities too. I’ve picked some of my favourite photos for this month. P1 is loving starting her new taekwon-do …

Taking My Four Year Old To Clubs

When P2 was around two years old I began to have worries about her confidence. She was extremely attached to Hubby and me when we ventured out and would rarely leave our sides. She took about three months to stop crying every morning nursery drop off. But then something changed her. It was like a switch was flipped and P2 …

We Lost Our February To A Chest Infection

I say it a lot but I really hate winter and cooler weather. It brings with it all the brilliant germs that seem to hang around for a while. In fact this time we lost an entire month to the nasty buggers. It started at the very end of January which feels like a life time ago now. P1 began …

Go Ape Tree Top Junior Adventure – When Things Don’t Go To Plan

My middle daughter who has just turned four is a little dare devil. We realised this during a trip to Paultons Park last year. She wanted to go on all of the rides and she did, including the rather scary big ones more than once. She was fearless. Then whilst at Universal Orlando Resort P2 begged us to go on …

Losing Motivation & Visiting The Ducks

I’ve been really struggling this winter to find the motivation for adventures. Our year last year was so busy and full of fun exciting things that when the cold hit, I wanted to hibernate through it and chill out. P2 had a full month off nursery and we got into a bit of a lazy routine of pyjama days, movies …

Letter To My Princess 2 – 4 Years

To my Princess 2, I have no idea where the last four years have gone and it feels absolutely absurd to think about you starting Primary School in just a few months time. You have this amazingly confident, strong willed personality which I’m struggling to get my head around if I’m honest. I think we clash a bit too much …

Experiencing A Clingy Toddler

I should have known right from the very beginning that this girl was going to be trouble. She was trouble, right from the moment she left the safety of my womb and nothing has eased since. P3 is a very unusual character and she’s been an interesting one to get to know.  P3 has a personality only to be described …

Kidney Disease & My Family

Growing up I was extremely close to my Grandparents. I spent a lot of time with them whilst my Mum and (ex) step dad worked hard for my brother and me. I remember times when we’d walk up to town with my grandparents and my Nan would have to stop and catch her breath frequently. She would also feel the …
