LeapFrog Musical Rainbow Tea Party Review

I frequently feel sorry for our youngest daughter. She has to grow up wearing hand me downs and owning preloved toys. In actual fact she doesn’t really own any of her own toys. I stupidly forget that her development is at a completely different stage to her bigger sisters. One thing she really thrives doing is playing with her sisters …

Siblings 2016 – April

This month has seen the girls settle down much better with each other. Of course they still have their horrible bitch fights where they literally attack each other (P1 and P2) with poor P3 copying more and more. I think this is going to be our futures as girls can be pretty mean to each other when they fall out. …

Our washing pile resembles a mountain. It’s always standing tall no matter what day of the week or whether you’ve just put three washes on in one day. I complain about it all the time, promising myself that I’ll keep up with it and make sure I do one load a day but in never works out that way. When …

Feeling The Strain

We are all judgemental towards others for any number of reasons. Whether your wearing too much or too little makeup, whether your child has snot coming out their nose, why she’s shouting in the middle of a shop at her toddler. Trust me it’s never ending and we are all guilty whether you like it or not. I think one …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #15/52

I nearly forgot about My Sunday Photo. This weekend has been very laid back and it’s been so nice. P1 and P2 have been in Essex with my Mum for their monthly sleepover and so we’ve been left with just one little lady to look after. I always find it so much easier and calmer with just the one. Going …

Britax B-Agile Double Pushchair Review

Sometimes you just don’t realise how much you rely on things that are always there until they’re not. We have just gone through a massive 28 days without a car and I don’t think I have enough words to describe how terrible it was. But actually it wasn’t the car which was the worst thing, it was having to manage …

Our Easter Sunday 2016

I didn’t think I’d celebrate Easter in the way we have. The past few years have seen Easter creep up, we buy a gift or an Easter egg at last minute and then brush the whole event off quite quickly. This year I have made so much effort to make Easter special. Originally we were meant to go to two …
