London is a great destination for families. There are lots of fun attractions to see, places to visit, and some amazing nightlife. Travelling with kids, however, is often fraught with difficulties, not least because of the issues associated with public transport or driving through central London.

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #10/52 Mother’s Day

When I typed “Mother’s Day” into my blog search bar this morning, it came up with nothing amazing and that was actually written on the day itself.  I did find this post from 3 years ago which hit a nerve and made feel angry and sad all at once but reminded me exactly why I’ve never made a big thing …

World Book Day 2016

The influx of happy children dressed up as their favourite book characters over social media can only mean one thing, it’s world book day! A day for celebrating books and reading. Personally, I am a lover of a physical book over an online edition, which do you prefer? I can’t remember what characters I used to go as at school. …

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 …

My Sunday Photo 2016 #9/52

We were up and out the door this morning for 9:30am to drop P1 off for her first service as a Brownie. It was the divisions Rededication Service and we were invited to go along and watch. I hadn’t realised it didn’t start for 45 minutes after we dropped P1 so we reluctantly decided just to pick her up at …

The 3rd Time Of Moving From Cot To Bed

P2 was just 15 months old when we moved her from cot to bed, or mattress on the floor to be precise. I don’t remember when I moved P1, I’m pretty sure she was much older. I thought we had plenty of time before it would be P3s turn but that time came and on the 23rd February she came …

She’s A Brownie

I popped P1s name on the waiting list for our local Rainbows group when we moved over to Sevenoaks. Over two years ago now. Just before Christmas we had confirmation that she had a place. Then a few weeks later we were contacted about a place in the Brownies group. As P1 is now 7 years old she was in …

JOHNSON’S 3 Steps To Better Sleep

If you are a long term reader of my blog you will know that sleep is not my best friend. I had 19 months of broken sleep with P2 before we introduced P3 to the mix and it now equals to 3 years of broken sleep. So my experience of sleep certainly hasn’t been a good one and when JOHNSON’S …

Sow & Grow with Innocent Drinks

We had such a lovely time at Fruit Towers back in August that when Innocent invited us along again we just couldn’t say no. All five of us headed into London on Tuesday to have some lunch at the headquarters of where my girls favourite drinks are thought of.

10 Reasons Why I’m Not Having Any More Children

We were never sure whether to stay with two or venture into the world of three children. Three seemed scary and now that I physically have three little humans I am 100% sure that I’m not having any more children. I know that is probably a bit of a negative statement to make, especially at just 23 years old but …

Siblings 2016 – February

Literally just last night we entered a new phase in their sibling journey, sharing a room together. Ok, P1 and P2 have shared for about two years now and that has gone so well but yesterday we swapped the rooms around and now all three girls are sharing one bedroom. One bit of space. In an ideal world, P1 would …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #7/52

When we found our little house, I did have worries that we would rapidly outgrow it. There was four of us. For some time P1 had the small room and P2 was with us in the big room. After getting advice from a sleep specialist, we moved P1 into the big room to share with her sister and we had …
