A Surprise Photoshoot

A few weeks ago one of my friends had arranged a surprise for our friendship group. She wouldn’t tell us what but just to pack a picnic and meet at Knole Park, the local National Trust site. It was beautiful there and I realised that we should really get outdoors more for adventures with my big camera because the setting …

Climbing The Stairs At 10 Months

In January last year P2 climbed my MiLs stairs for the very first time. She was 11 months and 10 days old. It shocked us as she’d never made any indications that she wanted to climb anything. Today, at 10 months and 11 days old, P3 has climbed my MiLs stairs for the first time. I didn’t get to capture …

Becoming Domesticated & A Chance To Win Vanish Products

I have never been domesticated. In fact I am pretty sure that it is allergic to me, or the other way round as whenever I do start cleaning I sneeze and get puffy eyes. My bedroom was always a complete pig sty growing up. I was a typical teen that refused to tidy up the floordrobe, or the hundreds of …

We’ve actually been quite busy with a picnic, a photoshoot, friends coming over, going to the park, going to Gymboree, attending an exercise dance class, a paediatrician appointment …

Just before the summer holidays started there was plenty of talk in the blogging community of fellow bloggers going on a break over the school holidays. I sat there knowing that I most definitely wouldn’t be having a break from blogging ever. We are now in the middle of the second week of the school holidays and I’m already finding …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 10 Months

To my Princess 3, You are no longer a tiny baby watching the world go by. You’re firmly in that world, exploring and getting involved in absolutely everything.

As a parent there are so many roles that you have to play. Peace maker, chef, maid, friend, teacher plus so so many more but the absolutely most important one is that you have to play nurse.

A Thank You Teacher Gift & Goodbye To Year 1

I’ve never been one buys teachers gifts. I didn’t even get the nursery that P1 went to for three years a gift to say thank you. That’s how awful I am. I always mean to but then forget. This year, I opted out of the class collection as we wanted to get something for P1s teacher ourselves. I felt a …

Moving From Cot To Big Bed

When we moved P2 out of her cot and into a “big bed” we went about it completely the wrong way. When we found out about P3s impending arrival I panicked. We needed the cot that P2 inhabited for the new baby and we needed to do that before the new baby arrived so being the hormonal pregnant person I …

#SwapYourStroller With SmarTrike

Pregnancy, bad weather and life in general sort of took over and it’s quite hard to believe that we haven’t got the SmarTrike out for nearly a whole year!
