Siblings 2018 – May

We have been able to get outside this month, with temperatures reaching nearly 30 degrees. We’ve focused on getting the garden ready for our girls and we are nearly at a state where we are comfortable with it. Having our new Dunster House climbing frame has allowed the girls to bond so much. Mainly P2 and P3 have been out …

New Rides At Peppa Pig World Paultons Park!

Our favourite family theme park is most definitely Paultons Park and there’s no secret about it. We love the variety of things available. We recently received a Royal Invitation to the Grand Preview Days of the two new rides in the Peppa Pig World part of Paultons Park. The girls were thrilled. Sadly P1 was still suffering with chickenpox so …

You Are Not A Failure, You Are Not Alone

Today I realised I am not alone. This sounds silly because there’s honestly so much coverage on the topic that I’m talking about, yet I still felt very lonely. Being a mum of three is hard work. They are draining. They are a constant. I always feel I’m not good enough for them, that they could be having a better …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Chickenpox!

I plan to write another post all about it but definitely thought that for this weeks My Sunday Photo, it had to be of my biggest baby. She has suffered quite badly this week, I …

The girls were due to spend the weekend with my Mum in Essex, I hadn’t realised it was going to be a long weekend. Hubby and I met my Mum half way, at Ikea Thurrock. After saying our goodbyes to the …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Going To London To See Tully With Channel Mum

This week has been a very odd one hasn’t it?! We’ve had extreme rain followed by a glorious weekend. I spent Thursday doing something completely out of my comfort zone. I went to London by myself to meet the Channel Mum team for a private screening of Tully. I was so nervous beforehand. Travelling by myself, meeting new people, meeting …

Taking My Grandad To Kent Life

Firstly I wanted to thank everyone for all of their well wishes regarding my Grandad. I haven’t updated on here for a while but he’s doing ok! Currently he’s been living with my Mum, still has a catheter attached and has no vision back in his right eye despite laser treatment. He worried me, he still does, but every day …

My First Proper Experience Of Chickenpox

As you’ve probably guessed by the title, this post is all about Chickenpox. I have wanted my girls to catch the highly contagious disease since they were very younger, like under a year if I’m honest. That may make me seem mean but I just wanted it over and done with. P1 supposedly caught it when she was about two …

Family Day Out To Chessington In Pictures

I have wrote about adventures to Chessington World Of Adventures twice before; our first experience was of their Howl-oween event three years ago now, and the second time was last year for the opening of the new Gruffalo River Ride which had replaced the much loved Bubbleworks. So for this post about our recent trip to Chessington I thought I …

Our First L.O.L Surprise Confetti Pop Review

Somehow we’ve managed to steer clear of the craze that is hitting little girls across the world. The L.O.L Dolls. I remember there being huge hype over the large edition ones that cost loads of money and it sort of put me off because I didn’t know enough. Then we were sent three of the L.O.L Surprise Confetti Pop balls to open …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Happiness

This photo was taken on our way to the Isle of Wight. We’ve been for the past two years, this is our third year and it has definitely become our most favourite place to take the girls. P1 who is somebody who doesn’t adjust well to a change in environment (she’s waiting to be diagnosed with autism), has taken this …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Sickness Bugs

We started this week with a light dusting of snow once again, ended it with some sunshine and a glimmer of hope for Spring time. However, the middle part of our week was pretty yuck if I’m honest. P2 came back from school on Tuesday complaining of tummy pains. This shortly followed by sick. Weirdly the vomiting (why does that …

Getting Through the First Day of School

Your child’s first day of school can be emotional for the both of you. If they’ve been at home for the first two or three years of their life, the idea of them going out and living their own life at nursery for a few hours a day can be a hard pill to swallow. As a parent, you can’t …

Is It Lucky To Have Child Free Time?

I hear it so often when I tell people I’m child free and that we get to have this once a month for an entire weekend. “You’re so lucky!” But is it luck really? And is that luck mine or the kids? If you are new to my blog, I am a mum of three girls. I had my first …
