I still can’t believe that we have been in this house for four weeks already. So much has happened. This is our kitchen tour. The kitchen was empty of appliances, …

Rug Doctor Deep Carpet Cleaner Review

If you are new to my blog you may not know that we recently moved home. We moved to our first non-rental and part of doing up the entire property was fitting brand new carpet throughout. Honestly, moving felt like such a grown up stage of our lives even though we’d been living together in a rented property for the …

Shared Bedroom Tour | House Reveal #4

If you saw the last house reveal with the Box Room Tour you will know that one big change for the girls was their bedroom changes. P1 had graduated to her own room leaving P2 and P3 to share still. There’s only 19 months between them so it made sense for it to be this way. We had big choices to make …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – My Grandad’s In Hospital

World Book Day 2018

It’s World Book Day. A yearly event that celebrates books and reading. I am a huge lover of a good book, especially children’s books now that I am a parent. I love the excitement every evening when we settle down for a our bedtime story. Sadly, the snowy weather has postponed the school celebration of World Book Day but that …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – A Family Photo

This may sound very strange considering both Hubby and I work at home for the majority of the week, but getting family time is actually quite rare. When I say family time, I mean where all five of us are together going out and doing something. This winter has killed my motivation. I just want to be indoors in the …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – My Valentine

Valentines Day is like marmite; you either love it or you hate it. Which one are you? I have always felt it is a heavily commercialised day of celebration. I don’t believe you should need a specific day to show how much somebody means to you. We don’t buy gifts for each other, in fact I have been known to …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Daffodil Season

I walk to school or nursery every single day at least once, usually three times, and it’s a great way for me to start taking in my local area and noticing habits. Suddenly over the past week I have started to see shoots of little flowers emerging from their beds. For me, it’s a sign that Spring and warmer, longer …

Living Room Tour | House Reveal #2

It’s been embarrassingly long. I promised room tours of our new home back in October and then I uploaded just one in November. Our home is now basically finished and I’m ready to start sharing photos and updates. This year we are now focusing on our garden so you’ll have to wait a bit later in the year for that …

Grown Up Time: Turn Your Bathroom Into A Spa

Before children came into my life, I remember a few special occasions where I would treat myself, friends or even family to a relaxation session at our local spa. Or making a weekend of it with my partner and staying in a posh spa retreat – facials, body massages, hot tubs, the smell of the warm wood in the sauna …

#BLOGMAS Day 9 – Her First Christmas Performance

It’s that time of the year again, the time you either love or hate. Nativity time. I remember P2s first nativity at their nursery. I was so excited and put the effort into making her the angel outfit. P1 had never had nursery nativities and I was working before so never really had the time. This year was P2s first …

#BLOGMAS Day 8 – Do You Want To Build A Snowman?

On a Wednesday P3 stays at home with me for a full and rather long day. It used to be P2s day off nursery but now she’s at school so there’s just one of my daughters at home to entertain. I have been really finding it hard to entertain my littlest baby. Children on their own need so much attention …

#BLOGMAS Day 5 – Our First Garden

It has been no secret of mine that I have wanted a garden for my girls to enjoy for such a long time. It feels like forever to be honest. So when we moved it was high up on my list. I never expected to be able to get such a big one though. It was run down as you …

#BLOGMAS Day 2 – Our Advent Calendars

Gone are the days when advent calendars were traditional card ones with pictures. Well at least they are in this household. I wanted to share with you the advent calendars we’ve got this year. So as you can see we have gone a little crazy this year once again. I swear we tell each other that we’ll only have the …

#BLOGMAS Day 1 – The Christmas Tag

I’m not sure if I’m being too ambitious this year with attempting to do both vlogmas on YouTube and Blogmas here on my blog. I’m going to give it my best shot anyway and see how we go this December. So the first post for my blogmas is going to be the Christmas tag. A great place to start I …
