My Feelings On Our Last Night At Home

I am writing this sat on the end of P3s bed. There’s the sound of snoring and a sense of peace finally. It’s been a long weekend of lots of tears, tantrums and shouting. We have boxes piled up everywhere ready to throw our entire life into a van and unpack it the other side to start a fresh adventure. …

Finally We Have Our Forever Family Home

I have lived in a total of six properties since having P1 nearly nine years ago. Each one I have rented and due to strict rules, I have never decorated because I felt I was making somebody elses home better. I day dreamed about the day that I could hang photos, decorate a room and truly make somewhere my own. …

Last Summer Sunday At Penshurst Place

I felt a lot of guilt and a lot of excitement all at once about our visit to Penshurst Place for their last Summer Sunday event of the summer. We had decided to leave P3 with my MiL because she had spent the majority of the previous two weeks being super grumpy and we had all been craving some peace. …

Her First Day At Preschool

I have read so many posts in the past week about parents feeling emotional about their children starting school. I’ve never been able to relate to that feeling, I’ve never really felt that emotional attachment to my children, the sentimental need to keep drawings. In fact I thought I had something wrong with me until today. I had little sleep …

You Are In Year 4

Over the past year or so we have been watching a brand new building arise from the old school playground. Each week something would change about it; bigger, the roof put on, windows going in, outer panelling on, new playgrounds created and then finally it was finished before the end of the last school year. The school was moved from …

Father’s Day 2017 Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is probably the only celebration of the year that I really struggle with. I mostly end up forgetting about it and having to print off a printable card from a random website. But this year, with the thanks to Hallmark and Tesco, they’ve reminded me all about Father’s Day and even helped me get prepared. Tesco have a …

Mother’s Day 2017

I totally realise that I am super behind on publishing this. But I felt like I couldn’t just ignore Mother’s Day like it never happened because it did. I had a relatively normal Mother’s Day, normal in the sense that it fell on a Sunday, I lost an hour of sleep and my middle daughter woke me several times in …

My 24th Birthday At Bewl Water

Since becoming a Mum my birthdays do not feel as significant. Apart from the fact I am getting older, my birthday just feels like a normal day. I wake up with the kids early, I get them breakfast, get them ready for wherever they are going that day. However, this year I invited my Grandad along for my birthday and …

“We’ve just had a four day weekend”

I am the type of person that is quite content with lazying around the house. After a while it does start to feel like you’re in jail, sharing your cell with screeching children, which is why I now make the effort to attend two play groups a week with P2 and P3. I met a lovely lady well over a …

17/31: Our Average Day

Today’s Blog Every Day in August’s prompt was Timeline of Your Day. It’s a Sunday, and although during the holidays it hasn’t seemed to matter whether it’s a Sunday or a Wednesday, our day follows the same rough schedule unless we have a planned trip out. Here’s our average day: (Despite the frequent wake up calls during the early hours …

My Wedding Day

I’m now a married woman. Does it feel any different? Nope. Everyone’s right that the day would be over in a flash. As you all know my wedding day was also my 21st birthday. So the night before my Mum and Grandad took me out to celebrate. We had a wonderful meal! I stayed at the Premier Inn with just …

My Orange Rhino Challenge

I’ve found myself shouting less. Thinking about what I’m doing. Ok, I still have my moments. But on an overall, I’m loads better at controlling my anger towards P1. And what’s better is although she has her moments, her behaviour is gradually getting better. So, I’m stopping the challenge. I figured you probably don’t want to read “no shouting” everyday …

DP – Judgement Day

If you were to judge your favorite book by its cover, would you still read it?   My absolute favourite writer of all time is Sophie Kinsella. If I could I would own all her books and reread them over and over and over again. I definitely think that the book covers do the book justice. They are colourful and …
