Our Historic Chatham Dockyard Day Out

He doesn’t like too much fuss so I’ll make this part brief, but my brother turned 18 years old last Saturday. Honestly, I have no idea how my not-so-little brother is officially an adult now. I remember when he was born, I adored him instantly especially as he gifted me a Furby. We had lots of fun growing up. To …

Siblings 2018 – February

With the weather still pretty pants we have been spending a lot of time indoors at the weekends. I’d love to say we’ve been embracing the colder, wet days but we just haven’t. The girls get miserable when they get cold so it’s not enjoyable to adventure too far away from home at the moment. We’ve had a bit of …

Letter To My Princesses 2 – 5 Years

To my Princess 2, It’s your fifth birthday today and I think I’m in slight denial about it. I had picked some nice posed photos of you smiling innocently, but actually these photos speak more about your personality. This past year you have grown in personality. Big changes happened where you went from being a little nursery go-er to a …

5 Reasons Why I Love My Daughter’s Preschool Nursery

Picking a nursery, school or preschool is always a pretty daunting task when you are a parent. P1 went to a day nursery back when we lived in Essex, P2 went to preschool although it was called a nursery and P3 now goes to the same one. I hope this post maybe gives you an insight when you decide to …

Bring Me Sunshine!

Since moving home I have definitely become a home body. We used to spend a lot of time out of our old house, getting away from the crowded environment, but our new home is different. I love being here much more than freezing my butt off going on adventures. But at the same time I am longing for our adventures. …

A Chilly Winters Walk

One of my goals this year is to document my personal life better than I did last year. I want to document every little moment. I’m not entirely sure if it will always be a diary style post, maybe just pictures or a mixture of the two but it’s important to me to go back to the very beginning and …

Happy New Year! My 2018 Goals

Last year my 2017 goals was a list of ten things I’d hope to achieve. Firstly, how bloody quick has 2017 gone? I feel like each year goes past quicker and quicker. I looked back on the goals set this time last year, that’s weird to say, and I was so shocked to find that I have managed to achieve …

Letter To My Nan – 4 Years

On this day four years ago my biggest baby, P1, started her primary school education back in Essex. That day holds so many precious memories. I’d dropped P1 off at school on time, not knowing anybody as we had been through an appeals process and subsequently missed any taster sessions they had. I needed to return back to the school …

Drama & Destruction Wherever We Go

Last weekend we headed back to Essex but this time it wasn’t to meet up with family, we were there to see my best friend. This friend of mine is the type of friend that you can go months without seeing but when you do, it’s as if you were never apart. It had actually been about 18 months since …

Last week we got the opportunity to head to our local ish shopping centre for a special preview launch. Bluewater have welcomed a fun new attraction for the summer holidays called The Beach.  I was so incredibly excited about our trip. We were the very first to walk through the gates and after a not-so-pleasant portaloo experience, we began our fun …

Life Is Changing

The last two weeks have felt like they whizzed by in a blur of emotions that I didn’t anticipate. The week in the lead up to P2 finishing her preschool years felt bittersweet. We had sports day and even that made me well up with emotions. One of the Mum’s arranged a little get together for the girls leaving and …

Wednesday At My Grandad’s

When we moved counties nearly four years ago, we promised ourselves that we would head back to our home town every two weeks ish. But the reality of life and commitments sort of stretched this and sometimes we can suddenly realise it’s been nearly two months or so. My Grandad lives in Essex and he’s the one person who I …

Keeping Up With Family Washing With Persil Powergems

Do you ever feel like you are drowning in washing piles? There’s five humans in my household and that equals to quite a bit of washing. I felt no motivation to wash anything until we were over piling the washing basket. Even when I did do the washing, I lacked the energy to actually fold the clothes afterwards. Six months …

Open Farm Sunday 2017

I was made aware of Open Farm Sunday last year by the good world of social media. We had a brilliant time wandering around with a rather cute little P3. As soon as the date for the next year was released I popped it in my diary. I have been so excited about Open Farm Sunday. For those of you who …
