Thunder and Lightning Storm July 2014

I’ve been craving a holiday for a while. Not any holiday, a get-on-the-plane sunny beach holiday but I needn’t be upset really. The weather in England has been so beautiful already this summer but I haven’t been able to enjoy it. Pregnancy has certainly got the better of me in this heat. Not only have I outgrown anything that was …

Winter Little Adventures Challenge with Barny

We first tried Barny Bear sponge snacks last year when we were challenged to go on an adventure. A few weeks ago we were given two packs of their new flavoured sponge bear snacks; Apple and Strawberry. Let’s just say everyone was a little excited about the special snacks sitting in our snack drawer. I’d planned a great adventure around …

Happy 1st Birthday Princess 2

I blinked and a whole year whizzed past. Yup, P2 is a whole year, 12 months, 365 days, 52 weeks old. I know it’s crazy!! I apologise in advance. It’s a long one and a cuppa tea and biscuit may be needed… If you’re not too squeamish that it. I realised that last year I failed to write my labour …

“The frustrating and daunting decision has come to say goodbye”

In January 2012 my little white 1995 Vauxhall Corsa with pink butterfly and flower stickers decided it wanted to keep breaking down on me. The last straw happened when it broke down in the middle of those yellow boxes and I was completely stuck with no help and many cars beeping and passing by. Luckily, it was opposite my work …

“Today topped it off when the school received their Ofsted report”

We’ve put the icing on top of a cake that’s slowly been created. Sorry, this post isn’t about yummy treats, it’s about P1s education. We uprooted our family to Sevenoaks nearly 5 months ago to start a complete fresh and better life. The schools are better, the lifestyle is better and the people are nicer. If you’re a loyal reader …

Center Parcs & Tots100 January Challenge

I’ve been lucky enough to visit Center Parcs three times. P1 has been twice. I fell in love with the place when I visited Elveden in December 2008. I was pregnant with P1 at the time. It was so pretty with all the Christmas decorations.Bloggers have been asked to describe their perfect day at Center Parcs, I watched the new …

“P1 has concussion”

It’s been a rather traumatic day today. A day where my life flashed before me. Terror. Worry. Upset. Guilt. I arrived at the school just like normal to pick P1 up. P1 had her head laying on her book bag facing away from me, she’s done this before, another Mummy joked that she was asleep. I tapped her and said …

Goals & Resolutions For 2014

I’m so relieved that 2013 is nearly over. The start of it wasn’t too bad; we welcomed P2 into our lives, had a pretty awesome weekend away with hubby’s family, went away for the weekend as our own little family, a week camping with my family, on the 3rd September we saw our biggest girl start big school. This was …

End of 2013 Resolution Reflection

I set 13 goals for 2013. Then half way through the year I reflected on my progress. Now… Well now 2013 is to an end and my golly it’s been a rough year. They say 13 is an unlucky number and for me that’s true. I’m really hoping 2014 will bring happiness and fun! Goodbye 2013s, 13 goals: 1) Become …

Blog Awards UK 2014

I love my blog. It’s given me a new focus in life. Something to rant on, to laugh on, to cry on and to jot down every inch of my life for memories to look at when I’m old and wrinkly. I’ve had so many amazing experiences thanks to the blogging world. Like reviewing and attending the Baby Show. But …

BBC Children In Need 2013

We’ve spent the whole evening watching every bit of BBC Children In Need. Both my hubby and I shed quite a few tears. People think that kids are so flexible to everything. I could definitely see that in the stories that were told tonight. They are flexible, but they are not indestructible. Things do effect children in ways we could …

Letter To Princess 2 – 9 Months

Dear P2, You have now been out in the world longer than you were inside my tummy. You’re 9 months old! This month you’ve figured out how to bum shuffle. Only properly in the past few days actually. One minute you’ll be sitting with your crocodile cushion and the next you’re half way across the room. Hopefully you’ll master the …
