#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 5 – Our First Garden

It has been no secret of mine that I have wanted a garden for my girls to enjoy for such a long time. It feels like forever to be honest. So when we moved it was high up on my list. I never expected to be able to get such a big one though. It was run down as you …

#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 …

#BLOGMAS Day 2 – Our Advent Calendars

Gone are the days when advent calendars were traditional card ones with pictures. Well at least they are in this household. I wanted to share with you the advent calendars we’ve got this year.

#BLOGMAS Day 1 – The Christmas Tag

I’m not sure if I’m being too ambitious this year with attempting to do both vlogmas on YouTube and Blogmas here on my blog. I’m going to give it my best shot anyway and see how we go this December. So the first post for my blogmas is going to be the Christmas tag. A great place to start I …

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 …

“Mummy! Milky”

I hear the words “Mummy! Milky” day in and day out. It’s a 24/7 occurrence and it comes out of two of my three darling daughters mouths. I honestly feel like I’m going crazily insane about it. It’s controlling nearly every breath I take and I am so tired. I’ll start with P2 seeing as that issue has been the …

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 …

My Dream Horse With Petplan Equine

As a child I was desperate to have my own horse. I’d research ways I could keep one in my parent’s back garden, yes I’m being serious. I was lucky enough to have riding lessons from the stables next to my Grandad’s allotment and I loved it. But like most things as a child, my phase soon turned to ice …

Siblings 2017 – November

I am very late uploading this. In fact I think it’s the latest I’ve published my Siblings post ever! It’s been a hectic month for us as a family with lots of adventures and settling in to our new home. Generally life seems the busiest it has ever been and I’m struggling to juggle everything. P1 has been leading a …

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 …

#MySundayPhoto – Home Sweet Home

Something just didn’t feel right in our old home but now I feel content for the first time ever. This house, the effort and the love we’ve put in has just helped us settle so quickly. We had meant to have some friends over on Saturday but plans got changed last minute. It gave us the perfect opportunity to spend …

Win A Free Jump Session At Jump In Trampoline Parks Tonbridge!

There’s no denying it. We are huge fans of Jump In Tonbridge. I actually am starting to feel a bit like it’s an extended family or even that I’m melting in with the furniture. We go to Jump In nearly every week but when the house move happened, we took a break and my gosh it felt like a pretty …

You Never Think It Will Be Your Child

Bullying is something that happens in every school. It’s a part of learning boundaries, personality clashes and bad behaviour. As a parent you hope that your child will never be bullied, that they are kind to everyone and that you never have to be called in to the Head Teacher because of an incident involving your child and someone else’s. …

#MySundayPhoto – Daddy’s Girl

“Mummy you are always angry!” “Daddy you are lovely!” That pretty much sums up my entire week in a nutshell and it’s devastating. I think it’s natural that one parent is more strict than the other, and clearly that is me right now. Or that’s what the girls are perceiving it as. P3 has always been my little shadow but …

#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 …
