Sykes Cottages Review – Redwood Broadstairs

We have had some amazing opportunities to travel around England. As a family we always pick to travel west of where we live as I like to think we are exploring the country we live in. Recently we decided to change our habit and Sykes Cottages took us along the east coast of Kent to a beautiful cottage in Broadstairs …

Forest School For Toddlers

Meterologically Spring has started. I can’t tell you just how happy I am to see the back of winter. I’ve been a proper recluse in terms of our outdoor adventures. I’ve avoided the park, we’ve not really been to any National Trust places and I’ve definitely preferred the comfort of my home and my joggers. But with Spring, comes the …

Babyzen YOYO+ Stroller Review

I have had my fair share of pushchairs in my eight years of parenting. But the Babyzen YOYO+ Stroller has literally blown my mind. It arrived to our door in a really small box compared to usual pushchairs that I wasn’t sure it actually was what it was. We chose the white frame with the pink colour pack for our …

Siblings 2017 – March

We’ve finally been busier this month and with the weather warming up on the most part, I’ve had an enjoyable month. The girls are getting more opportunities to bond with each other which is always welcome. We’ve had a few travel opportunities too. I’ve picked some of my favourite photos for this month. P1 is loving starting her new taekwon-do …

Sands Alive Cake Shop Review

I am going to say it out right, right now! I nearly turned this product down to review. I’m trying my best to be more selective this year and only choose products that I honestly believe in to share with you. This one didn’t scream too much excitement at first but there was this tugging at my heart strings that …

Taking My Four Year Old To Clubs

When P2 was around two years old I began to have worries about her confidence. She was extremely attached to Hubby and me when we ventured out and would rarely leave our sides. She took about three months to stop crying every morning nursery drop off. But then something changed her. It was like a switch was flipped and P2 …

Win A Family Ticket To Marsh Farm’s Easter Eggstravaganza 2017

I didn’t realise my love for Easter until we went to Marsh Farm last year for their Easter Egg Hunt. I had decided to stay with my Grandad for the weekend without Hubby and wanted to find somewhere to go. Marsh Farm was a childhood place for me to visit and I really wanted my girls to experience the farm …

We Lost Our February To A Chest Infection

I say it a lot but I really hate winter and cooler weather. It brings with it all the brilliant germs that seem to hang around for a while. In fact this time we lost an entire month to the nasty buggers. It started at the very end of January which feels like a life time ago now. P1 began …

Unveiling Their Inner Genie With Fisher-Price Shimmer & Shine Toys

In the first year of my blogging journey I got to work with Fisher-Price. Our house rapidly became a museum of their toys but as the girls got older the Fisher-Price toys moved on to new owners and the plastic reduced. The thing is, for me FP produced toys for younger children and that’s the view I have carried with …

Special Needs Diary #12 – Occupational Therapist Assessment

I’m not really scared of hospitals or medical appointments anymore. I don’t think you really can be when you’ve spent the good part of the past eight years visiting various hospital regularly with your first born. We have to visit a medical professional very few months I’d say for many different reasons. It gets a little confusing when you have …

Go Ape Tree Top Junior Adventure – When Things Don’t Go To Plan

My middle daughter who has just turned four is a little dare devil. We realised this during a trip to Paultons Park last year. She wanted to go on all of the rides and she did, including the rather scary big ones more than once. She was fearless. Then whilst at Universal Orlando Resort P2 begged us to go on …

My Top Tips For Tackling Head Lice & Nits

I’m not sure it’s something to shout from the roof tops, but I’d like to think I’ve now got some experience in tackling head lice and nits. After going seven years without getting a case of the dreaded creepy crawlies, then it suddenly felt like we were infested for weeks. But we are out the other side and I wanted …

Losing Motivation & Visiting The Ducks

I’ve been really struggling this winter to find the motivation for adventures. Our year last year was so busy and full of fun exciting things that when the cold hit, I wanted to hibernate through it and chill out. P2 had a full month off nursery and we got into a bit of a lazy routine of pyjama days, movies …
