#BLOGMAS Day 8 – Do You Want To Build A Snowman?

On a Wednesday P3 stays at home with me for a full and rather long day. It used to be P2s day off nursery but now she’s at school so there’s just one of my daughters at home to entertain. I have been really finding it hard to entertain my littlest baby. Children on their own need so much attention …

#BLOGMAS Day 6 – Bluewater Grotto & Ice Rink

I am loving the decorations everywhere. The way that the anticipation of Christmas spreads such an upbeat joy now that it is December. Recently we had been invited to experience Christmas at Bluewater. I was super excited as they have an ice rink. We bundled the kiddies in the car after school and headed to the shopping mall. I love …

#BLOGMAS Day 3 – Baylis & Harding Christmas Gifts Sorted

When it comes to buying gifts, especially at Christmas time, I really struggle. Buying for family or friends is stressful even if you think you know them really well. Baylis & Harding have a huge Christmas collection this year and although I usually feel like buying bath products is a bit of a cop out, I’m honestly super excited to …

Why You Need A World Map In Your Home

When we moved house there was one room I was most excited about. Our dining room. We had never had a proper place for us to sit and have our meals, a table to craft at and bake cakes. I honestly haven’t got the words to explain my need for a dining room and my excitement.  Weirdly enough this is …

Travelling To Tropical Islands Germany – Day 1

Hubby and I have been married for four years now but here’s a fun fact, we never had a honeymoon. For some reason it felt right to take a mini one in November. We decided to book a weekend break at Tropical Islands in Germany. I actually left Hubby to organise the flights and timings of things, that felt slightly …

Marsh Farm Father Christmas Experience 2017

I know, I know, it is still November but last weekend we dusted off our Christmas jumpers and headed back to Essex for the Marsh Farm Father Christmas Experience. This is my most favourite Christmas event of the year and you have absolutely no idea the amount of excitement I felt that morning. It felt like Christmas had come. The air …

#MakeTracks With A Family & Friends Railcard This Autumn

I pop on a train quite frequently for blog related shindigs but it’s actually quite rare for us to go with the kids or as a family. A few months ago I took P2 by herself to London and she had such a brilliant adventure that it made me want to experience train adventures more often.  We was asked by …

Going To The Park With Bassetts Multivitamins #nodulldays

During the summer it is easy to get out and about with our children. The warm weather makes us want to be out in it exploring and going on adventures. As autumn sets in, the days get colder and the sun setting earlier gives us shorter daylight hours, getting outside becomes much more of a chore. The Department Of Health …

Christmas Gifts For Under £5 With #sdfiverchallenge

For me Sports Direct is associated with my husbands pants and socks. He won’t buy them from anywhere else. We was recently challenged to find some Christmas gifts online for under £5. To me five pounds seems like such a small amount of money to find any decent gifts so of course I was up for the challenge. I couldn’t …

Are Fright Nights Really Scary?

Amongst the chaos of our house move (I know you’re bored of me saying it by now) we had managed to take a few hours break to experience the Thorpe Park Fright Nights 2017. We had been invited to the media event which happened to fall quite nicely on our wedding anniversary and my 25th birthday. In the lead up …

Monster Practice A Fun Approach To Learning | REVIEW

I have been so impressed at the way P2 has dealt with going to big school. We are at the end of the staggered settling in period where we picked her up at 12pm for a week and then 1pm for the following week. As of next week she will be in school full time. I thought the excitement may …

A Rainy Day Activity With Weekend Box & Snazaroo

Hello autumnal weather. Sporadic down pours of rain and darkened days at home. My girls are struggling with the adjustments to staying indoors a little more. They thrive to be outside because there’s so many opportunities that come with being in the great outdoors. I have been finding it so difficult to keep them entertained and was really thrilled to …

Princess Polly’s Potty – A Book To Help Potty Training

We have been potty training P3 for about five months now. She’s been doing really well but it’s definitely been a slower progress than her big sisters. She has been dry in the day for a while, with the odd accident of course, but her poops are a big problem still. It doesn’t matter how we approach it, gentle or …

Last Summer Sunday At Penshurst Place

I felt a lot of guilt and a lot of excitement all at once about our visit to Penshurst Place for their last Summer Sunday event of the summer. We had decided to leave P3 with my MiL because she had spent the majority of the previous two weeks being super grumpy and we had all been craving some peace. …
