Our Good Friday 2016

I needed a good day and what better day than Good Friday. My day started super early, around 5:45am. We were eager to get out with the new double pushchair and also desperate to get some milk as we barely had enough for the night before. So I made breakfast and shoved some clothes on us all so we could …

The Results – JOHNSON’S 3 Steps To Better Sleep

Two weeks ago we embarked on a journey that was hopefully going to change our lives for the better. JOHNSON‘s had asked us to take 3 steps at bedtime; bath, massage and quiet time using their Bedtime bath products. We were asked to do this routine every night to improve P3s sleep. I was very anxious when starting this new …

#LightTheArch With EE

In September 2013, ICT (Information and Communications Technology) was replaced by Computing. When I was at school our ICT lessons were all about creating Word Documents or painting a picture using Paint. But now children as young as 5 are being taught at such a more complicated level. At just Key Stage 1, they will learn to do things like …

Doctor Google Is Not Your Friend

I went to bed last night with a banging headache. I can only think I am subconsciously worrying. Either that or I was utterly exhausted from the day. It started early with a pretty relaxed walk to school with P1 and P3. Of course that didn’t go without dramas as P1 fell flat on her face and made her hand …

Do You Really Need A TV License?

I think the simple answer to this question depends on your watching habits. For us, we have absolutely no reason to have a TV license. I remember a time when just by owning a TV meant you were legally required to purchase a TV license. But those days are long gone. The rules are, if you watch live tv or …

4 Unusual Easter Gifts

It’s that time again – when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus by eating twice our own body weight in chocolate. The giving and receiving of chocolate Easter eggs has been a tradition for more than 100 years. So this year, why not forget the tradition and rather than an egg, give your loved ones an unusual Easter gift? Don’t …

How To Be Organised: Tips From The Experts

Organisation – for some it’s a dirty word that might mean ‘complete life overhaul’ or ‘total disruption of everyday routine’. For those who are not organised, the concept can feel like an arduous task, put there to set them up to fail… like that diet you tried to sustain in the New Year until the first weekend in January when …

Embracing My Middle Daughter

I frequently forget to focus on all the great things my girls do. Instead getting fixated on the bad, the naughty behaviour or habits they have. Stuck in the same rut of routine and the battle of bedtime. But it’s the start of our Easter holidays, well for P2 anyway as her nursery always breaks up a week earlier than …

What’s In Our Easter Basket?

Being a parent blogger where you are in a community of inspiring people it’s hard not to get excited when it comes to big events in the year. Over the past three years I have seen a new tradition of hampers or baskets being created around Christmas, Valentine’s, Easter and Halloween and each time I have good intentions to join …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #12/52

As you can guess by the lateness of my My Sunday Photo post, our Sunday has been pretty boring. Pretty much all day we have been relaxing with Netflix and gathering energy for the next few days of yet more walking to school. P1s day was probably the most exciting. She had a trampoline party to attend which she really …

The Reward Box Review and An Easter Giveaway

The terrible twos were not that terrible for us but P2 turned 3 in February, the milestone from toddler to preschooler seems to have brought with it significant behaviour issues that need to be addressed rather than swept under the carpet as a phase. I have never been one that believes in reward systems. Recently we have been keeping a tally chart …

The Mum’s Guide to Father’s Day

Over the last 50 years, there’s been a real shift in how things work in the home. Previously, women (mostly) stayed in the house and men went out to work – but, as we know, that pattern is changing dramatically. Nowadays, both partners are responsible for childcare, chores and errands. More than 200,000 British fathers are stay-at-home-dads, and a great …

A Letter To My Husband – Surviving 4 Years In A Relationship

To my Husband, We have been together for four years today. We’d been talking online for a long time before the day we met and it felt like I’d known you my lifetime already.

Organising A Local Blogger Coffee Morning Sevenoaks

I get extremely nervous in any social situation especially when it’s a new one. For me, the parenting scene is dominated by parents that are older than me whether that’s by a few years or by 20. It sometimes feels quite hard to engage with people who have experienced careers, travel and general adult life. I’ve definitely been pushed out …

Children’s Bedroom Tour With Potwells

A few weeks ago we made the pretty big decision to move the bedrooms around so that all three girls were sharing. Yes, you probably think we’re mad considering two of three girls still do not sleep through the night. But actually things are going pretty well. Recently we were sent some storage solutions from Potwells and so I thought …

Siblings 2016 – March 2016

Being a member of a 3 part sister bond must be extremely hard. There’s always someone to fight against for attention, for cuddles and generally with each other. I worry daily about their relationships with each other. Part of me feels that P1 is pushed aside due to school, that she doesn’t get very much time with her sisters to …
