“It’s like someone flicked a switch and made me motivated”

It’s Friday already which means that P1 has completed her first week back to school and we’ve completed our first week back in a slight routine. This week has really been different. It’s like someone flicked a switch and made me motivated to move instead of lazing on the sofa. I’m still struggling to get up early, physically getting up …

Nonabox December Review

Decembers Nonabox came in a beautiful Nona-Styled Christmassy box. I’m actually finding great use for the boxes so this one is a cute little edition to our collection. Nonabox is a subscription box that costs just under £25 a month. I’ve listed the products included in this month with their value and it’s clear that it does exceed the £25. …

Back To School After The Christmas Holidays

I can’t quite figure out if the Christmas holidays went quickly or slowly. With the household being poorly pretty much the majority of the holidays, the days seemed to roll into one and it was over within a blink of the eye. On the other hand, it seems like forever since it was Christmas. I want to be more organised …

“P2s tantrums are beyond bearable”

The girls have swapped roles. P1 and P2 that is. I’ve wrote many posts about how naughty P1 is and how I don’t know what to do, and generally P2 has always been happy and well behaved. This past week or so we’ve seen some huge, horrible changes in P2. P2s tantrums are beyond bearable. She does the throwing on …

“I’d been imprisoned in my own home for 8 days!”

It had been 8 whole days since I last ventured outside the house. Hubby had been for food shopping or to take P2 to the doctors but not me, I’d been imprisoned in my own home for 8 days! At first it was quite nice to just chill out in our pjs. But the day we found out the car …

Happy New Year 2015 – My 5 Goals

I hope you’ve seen my blogiversary competition! With 2014 finally behind us and 2015 now in full swing I’ve been thinking about the things I want to achieve this year. There’s plenty of room for improvement in nearly every corner of my life but I’ve managed to whittle it down to just 5 this year. 5 that are equally realistic …

Win Over £100 Worth of Prizes to Celebrate Our 2nd Blog Birthday

2014 is over! Gone. It seems to have really flown by. I’m not even going to reflect on my goals this year as we’ve had a pretty bad year for our personal life and I’m quite relieved that it’s over. We have had a few wonderful moments and in some senses 2014 was one of our best years. We welcomed …

Babybjorn Baby Carrier We Review

As you may have noticed, we’ve been testing out a few baby carriers. I’m desperate to find one that really works for me. The fifth carrier to enter our lives is the Babybjorn Baby Carrier We. My initial thoughts of the We was that it is quite manly. It also looked quite bulky and heavy. To be honest I wasn’t overly wrong. …

To My Princess 1 – 6 Years

To my Princess 1, I can’t believe where all these years are disappearing to. I have to admit it does feel like such a long time ago that you were that tiny premature baby fighting for life. You keep asking me if by being six it’ll mean you’ll be big as in tall. I have to keep reminding you that …

Christmas Party 2014

Every year my MiL holds a little gathering for all the family. I remember the first party I went to. I had felt super nervous as it was the first time I was going to meet hubby’s family. They all live pretty far apart so having a full family gathering is quite spaced. The first year I was pregnant with …

“She revealed to us that she already knew what she was getting”

On Thursday we made the brave decision of taking a trip to Toys R Us. Exactly a week before Christmas I expected the place to be crammed with people and low on stock. I was wrong. Ok, granted it was busy but we were able to wander around at our leisure with P2 running about like an excited mess and P3 in …

Doona Review – Out and About with a New Baby

We were sent the Doona a few months ago to review. You can see our initial thoughts here. We’ve now been using it for three months and I’m struggling to remember how I coped with life with a baby twice before without having a Doona! As I said in the first post, the Doona is Isofix compatible however we’ve been using …

Papoozle Baby Carrier Review

I’m small. I go on about it over and over again. It has its advantages and it has disadvantages. One of the disadvantages is that I struggle to baby wear. To date, I have owned and tried three baby carriers, two of these worked nicely for P2 but the same ones just aren’t working with P3. Our fourth baby carrier …

Baker Days Letter Box Cake Review

We’ve been enjoying a treat from Baker Days. It arrived in the post last week and we actually used it as a little gift for P1 after doing so well in her nativity. Baker Days have an enormous selection of cakes for all occasions. We chose a Christmas cake with none less than Olaf from Disney’s Frozen. I wasn’t sure what …
