Playbrush Toothbrush Review

As a child, I used to hate brushing my teeth. It was the one part of the day that was pretty tiresome and boring. These days there are so many options to help combat that boredom with many apps, colourful character toothbrushes and reward charts. However, my girls are following my path of finding the whole process a chore. I …

I am finding a real love for collecting board games and puzzles since I became an Orchard Toys Ambassador this year. I had always thought it was something my girls wouldn’t enjoy very much due to poor attention span but actually they love playing games together. We was recently send the What A Performance! board game to review. What A Performance! …

Special Needs Diary #10 – An Update

So firstly I am changing the format of this series of blog posts slightly. I’ve changed the name from Autism Diaries to Special Needs Diary. This is purely because we don’t have an official diagnosis and with recent medical appointments and conversations, it just doesn’t feel right to give P1 a definite label yet. However, she definitely is a special …

It definitely feels like technology is taking over my world. The word “iPad” is literally grating on me as all three of my girls are obsessed. I have recently felt like the girls are engrossed by technology world, watching endless episodes of Peppa Pig and spending hours playing Minecraft. I have been searching for new ways to prize those devices …

Sleep Deprivation Is Actual Torture

I was teased whilst we were in America. I experienced five days of what my life probably should be like by now. I put the girls to bed and didn’t hear from them until morning. In other words I had four full nights of sleep. I don’t think I really got to feel the benefits though as jet lag kicked …

My Letter From Santa Claus Review

I can’t quite believe how fast Christmas is approaching this year. It’s just a month away and I feel completely unprepared this year despite the fact we have actually done our toy shopping. I do feel super festive though and am determined this year to push the festivity to the limits. My Letter From Santa Claus got in touch recently …

Getting Through The Sickness Bug

I suffer quite badly with migraines and I spend nearly every day worrying about when my next one will come on. They happen with no warning and I haven’t quite found out what the triggers are yet. Parenting with a migraine is absolutely awful. All you want to do is hide away and sleep it off but you just can’t …

Siblings 2016 – November

This past month has been an absolute crazy one for us as a family. We’ve spent it partly in USA and when in the UK we’ve been in three different counties. There has been so many opportunities for making memories for us as a family but also for my girls as sisters. I have really enjoyed watching them this month …

Halloween At BeWILDerwood Norfolk

Before our amazing Universal Orlando trip was arranged, we had plans to head to Norfolk to see Hubby’s Grandparents. I actually hadn’t been up to their house in Norfolk before which meant the girls hadn’t either so this was a trip I was really excited about. As there is a lot of us we decided to book into a local …

Taking A Break With An Autumn Walk & A Vlog

We recently had three consecutive holidays. We had two mini breaks and the epic holiday to Orlando. They all came at once and we were so super lucky but I was bound to feel the holiday blues when we returned to England. Those blues have really hit. The two weeks before our holidays were the most stressful that I’ve felt …

A Simple Halloween

Last year P1 went with my MiL for a Halloween party and missed trick or treating. She was devastated and this year she kept asking if she could come with us. With nothing else planned for Halloween day and evening, we agreed to go trick or treating. Hubby bought a super cute small pumpkin to carve. He spent ages marking …

Halloween Half Term – A Microbreak With Marriott Hotels In The UK

We have had a pretty insane October Half Term. We kick started our adventures with a chance to discover our #WeekendSelf with Marriott Hotels. We were invited to have a microbreak. I can imagine a microbreak without children being pretty chilled out, but for us at the moment we needed a place to explore that was both fun for adults …

Bratz Insta-Pets Doll Review

I recently got the pleasure of being insulted by an older man for the job that I have. Apparently social media and the internet is ruining the world. But quite frankly I believe it’s enhancing the world and that’s why I do what I do. Kind of. But also, I don’t really think you can hide away from social media …
