6 Things No One Tells You About Travelling With Kids

Travelling with kids is great fun. And by fun we mean it’s like spending a few hours in one of Dante’s seven circles of hell. While you might consider that reference to be a little extreme, here are six things no one tells you about travelling with kids to change your mind: You won’t have enough room in the boot …

We’re Off On A Dream Holiday To Orlando

I get sent blogging opportunities near enough daily. Some are just not of interest, some are fun and some are so dreamy you feel a little giddy about them. A few weeks ago, I was amongst hundreds who applied to go on a blog trip to Orlando and I felt there really was no chance in hell that my little …

Clementoni Princess Magnetic Drawing Board Review

My girls really enjoy getting crafty and drawing. Sometimes I feel incredible guilt when I am just far too busy to entertain the mess that getting creative can bring. Over the years I have come to love Magnetic Drawing Boards and we’ve had many different shapes and sizes of them. Recently P2 was sent her very own Disney Princess Magnetic …

The Cheeky Elf Review

When I was a child Christmas meant a time for Father Christmas to bring presents. On Christmas Eve we would set out the plate for him; a mince pie, some milk and a carrot for Rudolph. We’d then pretend to be asleep for as long as possible before our eyes forced it upon us. I remember waking up before it …

Georgie The Interactive Puppy Review

If you were to ask P2 what pet she’d love to have, her answer will always be “I want a Chihuahua”. Whenever she looked a photos of different dogs it would always be the little chihuahuas that caught her attention and that’s when she learnt the breed and ultimately has fallen in love. We don’t have a garden at the …

Siblings 2016 – October

We are well and truly in Autumn now. For some reason I feel that family life is a lot harder during the colder months. It’s so much more planning and prepping just to step outside your house. Do we need wellies? Do we need coats? What kind of coat, a big thick one or a nice thin rain mac? It’s …

Birthday Shopping With My Grandad & Mum

For Christmas last year my Grandad promised me a shopping trip. It was his way of giving me a present. I ended up going child free and meeting my Grandad and Auntie at the shopping centre.

My 24th Birthday At Bewl Water

Since becoming a Mum my birthdays do not feel as significant. Apart from the fact I am getting older, my birthday just feels like a normal day.

A 2nd Birthday Cake Smash

Last year, just before P3 turned one, I decided to throw her a cake smash round my Grandad’s house. He has such a pretty garden and it was the perfect and most relaxed place to hold something I had never done before. It was a little bit disastrous and cake had to be manipulated by adults for P3 to show …

Special Needs Diary #9 – Homework

Dear Diary, I have huge concerns about P1s education. She doesn’t seem wired academically like I was. I always enjoyed school I think apart from the bullying and being picked on for being small. I did relatively well at learning when I wasn’t talking to my friends. But P1 is falling behind. Key Stage 2 is naturally harder than what …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 2 Years Old

To my Princess 3, These past 2 years have been the most exhausting of my life! I remember getting through my birthday feeling thankful that I didn’t have to share my birthday and wedding anniversary with your birthday too.
