Leap Day 2016 – Fresh Air At Coolings Nature Trail

Every four years we gain a day. A leap year. This year marks our youngest daughter turning 17 months. Social media was filled with posts about making the most out of the extra day but I personally was ready to spend my day being a slob. Then the guilt came over me and we decided to head to the Nature …

Bedgebury Pinetum Stick Man Trail Adventure

I have been hibernating so far this winter. Spending most of my days in my joggers or pjs bottoms and doing my best to avoid unnecessary trips outside. Things are back to normal routines now and we are trying to do more things at the weekends this year. This Sunday we stepped completely out of our comfort zones and decided …

“It was lovely to have all three running about together”

Around Easter time each year since moving to Sevenoaks, we have been gifted a membership to the local Nature Trail by my MiL. I think originally it was my MiLs way of getting us to go out more because I was a little reluctant during the first 6 months of living here and was happy to spend day in day …

Our Afternoon At Peppa Pig’s Surprise Live Tour

I have had nearly 7 years of Peppa Pig in my life. It was P1 who first became obsessed and watched every episode over and over to the point where I probably knew the words to every season! I treated her to theatre trips too which were thoroughly enjoyable for me as well as her with the cute hand puppet …

Dreaming Of A Family Holiday

Whether you are a mum or not, you will know that parenting is exhausting. Even on a really good day when you are having a win moment, it is exhausting! Today was not a day full of win moments unfortunately. In fact, the past week has been totally draining. The kids are spending most of their time doing their best …

#BEDN – 12 – Your Local Area

I absolutely adore the area we live in. It is ranked at one of the richest towns in the UK which isn’t surprising and that theme sort of runs through the entire area. The health services are far more efficient and superior to the ones back in my home town, Essex. The schools are much better and that was one …

Malcolm & Gerald Personalised Children’s Clothing

I can’t remember the last time I physically went into a shop and bought clothes for the girls. Hubby has, in fact he treated P1 to a whole new wardrobe recently. Fashion has never been something I’ve enjoyed for myself and that’s probably why I’ve avoided it when it comes to the girls too. P2 and P3 both live in …

My Sunday Photo – 06/09/2015

We haven’t got P1 and P2 this weekend. It’s their usual monthly sleepover with their Grandparents in Essex. I always plan to get on top of blogging related things as having one should be much easier than three but it never works this way. Ever. In fact P3 becomes a voice that makes up for the missing two. She becomes …

“My Grandad’s home will always be my happy place of memories”

On Friday hubby asked if I wanted to see my Grandad. It was probably prompted from my emotional state whilst writing my Nan’s 2 year death-anniversary letter. It was late but I text my grandad to ask if he fancied having some visitors. So on Saturday we headed back to my home town to meet my Grandad for breakfast as …

My Sunday Photo – 23/08/2015

We don’t have a garden. Our little bit of outdoor space is a shared access way between our house and our outbuilding. This summer I’ve actually been brave enough to start using it. Our landlord put up a shelter a few months ago and it’s been great. It gives the feeling of having a conservatory and therefore we have started …

My Sunday Photo – 17/05/2015

When we chose to move out of our home county to a brand new one 18 months ago, our decision was swayed by the amazing community that we found over in Kent. There always seemed to be something going on, from craft fairs to christmas bazaars and horse charity shows. The people were genuinely friendly and would smile at you …

Binky Bear Goes To London Gift Set Review

As a child, I loved teddies and soft toys. My kids have certainly followed in my footsteps of their love for teddies and we have only recently given around 4 bin bags full away. When I was sorting the teddies out I had clear piles; TYs, Disney and memorable bears/teddies. We were recently asked to review the new Binky Bear …

Half Term Nature Trail Adventure

This time last year our household had been hit with a sickness bug (according to the TimeHop app) and half term, with all its plans and promises had gone out the window. I felt so guilty that week but we couldn’t help being ill. Nearly every school holiday since we’ve had some sort of illness that’s prevented us from enjoying …

“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. …
