Why Won’t She Sleep?

I am writing this on the evening of the 4th August. We’ve had a pretty good day in the scheme of things. It started with a trip to the school to drop P1 off for her summer school and the other two were able to play for a bit in the playground. I then went to the doctors, we went …

Dear Diary, A few weeks ago we didn’t have a car. We hadn’t had our own car for nearly eight weeks. At first we had a hire car so nothing really changed, then we borrowed our MiLs car but then we were left with nothing. We had no choice but to walk. We’d told P1 about the walking situation. That …

Dear Diary, I have grown to know that our eldest needs previous planning for whatever she does. Whether that be something very small like her next meal, or something big like a trip out. We are in the very first few days of the summer holidays and I’ve mentally prepared myself for mayhem in the first week or so as …

“P1 is behaved at school and a crazy nightmare at home”

I’ve always loved the idea of home schooling. Having no early mornings for school runs and being able to spend time as a family doing the things we loved whilst educating and growing my daughters. But then we have school holidays, and they remind me exactly why I don’t and would never go down that route. There’s something wrong with …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 15 Months

To my Princess 3, I really do think growing up suits you and it’s so scary to think you are already 15 months old! So far you are taking everything in your stride since learning to walk. You are so much fun now and unless you’re ill, you are such a joy to be around. You’re personality is absolutely hilarious. You …

Mamas & Papas, Joules & Little Green Radicals – A Kids Clothing Haul

This month has been an exciting one for P2 and P3s wardrobes. We’ve been lucky to receive some gift cards and clothes to review that …

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 …

A Wedding & Longleat Safari

I went a little bit off duty Sunday and Monday. With extreme lack of signal over in Wiltshire and it being a bank holiday there was absolutely no need to keep checking my emails and the only reason I did touch my phone was to check the time or take a photo. That was also where my off duties were …
