Weather Craft Fun #BostikBloggers

This months theme is definitely appropriate. The weather is finally feeling warmer and brighter which generally makes things feel happier for me. Of course we are in England and the weather is never really certain. We were sent another box of fun craft supplies from Bostik and this month I came up with an idea. I originally wanted a weather …

“We survived the hottest day of the year!”

Yesterday, 1st July 2015, marked the hottest July day in the UK so far. Temperatures soared to 36.7C in many parts of the UK. I checked my weather app regularly and the highest we saw in Kent was 34C. A crazy, dangerous temperature but I’m pleased to announce that we survived the hottest day of the year. As I’ve said …

“I’m trying to enjoy every inch of sun”

Life seems busier than ever at the moment. Probably because I’m trying to enjoy every inch of sun that shines in the sky this year and our little home houses three active monsters so I’ve sort of been push to go outside whether it’s across the road, out in the access way or to the park. Park being the popular …

Our Sunshine Afternoon in the Easter Holidays

This morning, like most of our recent mornings, I opened the blinds to clear blue sky and sunshine. Last year we had a pretty hot summer but I was unable to enjoy it properly because I was heavily pregnant and sweating like a pig. Now P3 is here I’m certain to enjoy it. Getting out in the sun doesn’t have …

15/31: My Dream Travel List

I haven’t really been to very many places so far so my dream destination list is pretty big. I cannot see myself visiting many of them any time soon due to kids and finances but I suppose that’s why it’s a dream list. 1) Canada. Hubby has family out there and I’ve heard so many stories that make me want …

“All the different things they can learn from a garden is incredible”

When we went house hunting having a garden was never very high on our priority list. Now the weather is stunning I’m slightly regretting our home “check list”. P1 has always been a garden girl, she spent a lot of time helping her Great-Grandad in his garden and she’s always happiest when able to play outside with her toys. As …

“It always feels like we’re rewarding naughty behaviour”

P1 woke up today and she’s clearly decided that she’d push all buttons possible by doing all things she knows she shouldn’t and being rude when I’ve asked her to stop. Jumping on the sofa for one. It’s not because I don’t want her to have fun, it’s because she could fall off and she’s teaching her sister who isn’t …

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 …

“The weather has been truly glorious this past week!”

I’m going to jinx this so I apologise in advance, but the weather has been truly glorious this past week! We aren’t lucky enough to have a garden with our house so getting outdoor time has been tricky. We are fortunate enough to have a few parks and a nature trail nearby and we’ve made full use of those lately. …

“I want to be back at CenterParcs”

We’ve had a little holiday to CenterParcs Longleat and it was certainly needed. I managed to pack clothes for all four of us into one large suitcase plus a little suitcase for random bits and toiletries. P1 packed a rucksack of toys by herself and then helped me pack P2s hamper with her toys.P2 found the whole packing process very …

“Playing amongst the spring daffodils”

Tantrums are a common situation that we deal with in our household. Whether it’s a 5 year old argument with back chatting and stomping or a 13 month old screaming with her head on the floor between her legs. A day without tantrums would be a day where you check to see if the girls are poorly. We seemed to …
