Why Did I Go To My 4th #BML17 Blogging Conference?

If you are not part of the blogging world then you probably don’t know that there are conferences for bloggers. The parenting world of blogging alone has quite a few to offer but when I first started blogging nearly five years ago, BritMums Live seemed to be where all the action was at. Each year sort of had a different …

It is always nice to let your loved ones know that you are thinking of them and how much you appreciate them. One of the best ways to do this is to buy them an unexpected present. For your female friends and family members, it is really easy to come up with ideas, but for the men in my life, …

P1 is now …

Life Is Changing

The last two weeks have felt like they whizzed by in a blur of emotions that I didn’t anticipate. The week in the lead up to P2 finishing her preschool years felt bittersweet. We had sports day and even that made me well up with emotions. One of the Mum’s arranged a little get together for the girls leaving and …

I’ve Never Been An Adult Without Children

My husband and I are really lucky to be able to enjoy one weekend a month where we can be child free for a night. For a little while before my Mum’s health deteriorated we even had two nights of freedom. When my Mum and Step-Dad had their kidney transplant operations the weekend’s stopped because they were recovering. They also …

A Morning Stroll Around Haysden Country Park

Following a day of feeling numb and confused after England experiencing another terrorist attack, I felt like I needed to just get out. Which is slightly strange as I am worrying so much about crowded public spaces now. This week the weather is glorious. I’ve dusted off my summer shorts and crop tops even if it may only last a …

What’s In My Bag, The Mummy Edition

I really enjoy watching What’s In My Bag videos on YouTube. It’s a simple way to be nosy but also to get some ideas. Sometimes I am literally shocked at the amount of stuff people have in their bags. A whole makeup kit or enough nappies to last a week. I just don’t think it is necessary and I have …

Google Home UK Launch Party

Last week Hubby and I hopped on a train and headed to London. I get nervous for every blog event I attend but this one was on a whole new level of nerves. We were heading off for a dinner arranged with Google. I sensed it was going to be a big event as other bloggers announced their attendances and …

It’s a new year and my blog is celebrating yet another birthday. I have no idea where the past four years have gone. So much has been achieved and blogging has become a way of life and not just a little on-the-side hobby I once had in 2013! I started this blog purely because I wanted to have a bigger …

Part 2 – Universal Orlando Resort – VIP Tour Experience

All three of the girls slept straight through their first night in Orlando. Despite being super comfortable in the air conditioned Garden Room of the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, I didn’t sleep too well. I think I was overtired and had adrenaline pumping through me as I anticipated the day ahead. I’d set my alarm for early. I had expected …

Halloween Half Term – A Microbreak With Marriott Hotels In The UK

We have had a pretty insane October Half Term. We kick started our adventures with a chance to discover our #WeekendSelf with Marriott Hotels. We were invited to have a microbreak. I can imagine a microbreak without children being pretty chilled out, but for us at the moment we needed a place to explore that was both fun for adults …

Num Noms Event At Bella Italia

I don’t want to even imagine how many hours my girls have spent watching Num Noms YouTube videos. At first that’s all the obsession stretched too but then we were sent some to review. It was super exciting for all of us to be invited along to a Num Noms party at Bella Italia! In case you were wondering, Num …

Special Spontaneous Visitors

There’s lots I miss about my home town and living near my family but on the other hand there’s many more things I don’t miss. The one thing that always gives me a heavy heart whenever I think about it, is the ease of seeing my Grandad. When I lived in Essex I was always just five or ten minutes …
