“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 …

#BEDN – 2 – Love Mondays

I think Monday has to be one of my favourite days of the week at the moment. Monday’s used to be one of the worst, it was either back to school for me and then it was back to work after a weekend but since being a stay at home mum to a school goer, Monday’s are about getting a …

Letter To My Princess 2 – 2 Years 8 Months

Barbie Saddle ‘N Ride Review

Life has been so incredibly crazy lately and since my operation it feels like I have been away with the fairies. My head has felt so confused and heavy. The children of course have been playing up to my own emotions and I seem to be fighting a never ending battle with them. I was extremely thankful when we received …

Barbie Rock ‘n Royals Review

Barbie has been around my whole entire life and they have certainly come a long way since then too. P1 has a huge collection of various Barbie’s who are mostly naked with scraggly hair now. The technology side of things has also improved and P1 especially loves watching all the fantastic movies that come out. The latest one is the …

5 Benefits Of Sensory Play

Think about your favourite memories. How many of these have a particular colour, smell or sound associated with them? The smell of a crackling barbecue in the summer or the roar of the crowd when your favourite football team scores a last-minute winner, are two examples. Our brains trigger flashbacks to those happy times as soon as our nostrils or …

Teaching My Daughter About Money With thinkmoney

We were recently challenged by thinkmoney to decorate a piggy bank but to also think about what financial advice we want our girls to carry with them until they’re older. I was certainly never good with money and spent my very early “grown up” life in debt and borrowing money from my Grandad constantly. Meeting my hubby changed things, he …

Since the TV advert came on our screens for Puppy Surprise P2 has been begging us for it each day. We had told her she had to wait for Christmas but when we were offered the chance of reviewing one I couldn’t say no. Especially when her big sister came back from her holiday with the Kitty Surprise which was …

Letter To My Princess 2 – 2 Years 7 Months

To my Princess 2, You are now 2 years and 7 months old, well three days ago you were any way. This past month you’re vocabulary has come on leaps and bounds. You’ve always been quite advanced I think but some of the things you say are just so grown up. This of course means you can be quite stubborn, strong …

Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Scooter Review

My mind has turned to a certain little persons birthday that is fast approaching us. At the end of the month my youngest baby girl will be turning 1! I really cannot believe that this milestone has so quickly come about. Birthdays of course mean celebrations and presents. I literally have not got a clue what to get her but …

My Sunday Photo – 06/09/2015

We haven’t got P1 and P2 this weekend. It’s their usual monthly sleepover with their Grandparents in Essex. I always plan to get on top of blogging related things as having one should be much easier than three but it never works this way. Ever. In fact P3 becomes a voice that makes up for the missing two. She becomes …

P1s First Day As A Year 2

We had an awful night last night with the younger two. It was inevitable really with the early start needed in the morning for the first school run of a new year. I went to bed later than I wanted to really as the P3 didn’t go to bed until later and I had to cook our meal from the …
