An Update On Vlogmas 2015

It’s been over two weeks since I started recording VLOGMAS videos for my YouTube Channel and I’ve included the playlist where it scrolls through my videos in order in case you haven’t seen them yet. I decided to join in with VLOGMAS to challenge myself and it really has been quite a task. I’m not sure it’s the filming that has …

All New Bob The Builder Magazine Review

When my little brother was born in 2000 I became in tune with the programmes and now they are all being renewed and spruced up. Bob The Builder is one of the characters who have had a makeover. I was all …

“Having just one child is like going on holiday”

The first weekend of every month we have just P3. The other two go off for a weekend with my Mum. These weekends are strange for so many reasons. One thing that always comes up is that there is always a moment when hubby says “so this is what life would be like with just one”. Hubby was thrown in …

3 Easy Recipes For Children’s Lunches With Bernard Matthews

When P1 first started school she was a packed luncher. She loved it but I absolutely hated trying to find new, filling ideas to put in them each day. She ended up eating chocolate spread sandwiches, some fruit and crisps each day. So as soon as the Government gave free school meals for Key Stage 1, we switched to school …

A Princess For A Princess #hairglowrapunzel

The Disney film Tangled holds a special place in my heart. One of the first things my Hubby ever said to me was that he had been told he looked like Flynn Rider and then P1 began to say that he looked like Flynn. It was funny little joke between us and so when we were offered to review the …

This Christmas we have been sent a beautiful collection of books from Little Tiger. The Night Before …

Why Do Babies Cry?

Babies: For newborns, crying is their main way of communicating. Toddlers: Toddlers cry because they’re hungry, tired, uncomfortable or need affection – just like babies. Preschoolers and school-age children: Children tend to cry less as they get older. Once they can talk, it’s much easier for them to tell you why they’re upset and what they need. Why do we …

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

I must confess that I don’t really buy P2 or P3 any new clothing. The clothing they wear each day are either second hand, gifted by family or friends and hand me downs from P1. 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 …

“The reality is I’ve been in my onesie all day sitting on the sofa”

Although I’m posting this today, Tuesday, I’m actually writing it yesterday. Confusing but I wanted to publish this yesterday but the video which is hopefully now below took literally all day to load to my computer. Blooming technology. As I’m writing this there’s a faint sound of snoring, I can hear Hubby downstairs watching YouTube videos and I’m sinking into …

A Video Blog – Our Week November 2015

I am naturally beginning to take more videos of my girls. It’s a really good way to capture a moment or a memory. Technology makes storing these moments so easy too. I honestly believe that if I didn’t have my blog then I wouldn’t have half as many photos and video that I do of their childhood. Last week, Saturday …

“The attention just one little human needs is incredible”

This weekend is the usual first weekend of the month when P1 and P2 head back to Essex to spend time with my Mum. I’ve felt mixed emotions surrounding these weekends. The girls enjoy themselves and it gives us space but it hasn’t ever really made life easier. P3 loves to cause enough fuss and demand enough attention to make …

#BEDN – 4 – Photography

It’s really crazy to think how far photography has come, especially very recently. From when I was a child there are plenty of very blurry, low lighting and low quality images of me. The photos are mainly of big events or birthdays taken on a camera that got dusted off for these momentous occasions. Go from back then to nearly …
