Siblings 2017 – October

It has been all about change this past month. The girls have been a teeny bit neglected and we’ve barely had any fun moments due to being consumed by decorating our new house in time for our move. But we some how made it to the other side alive. P1 doesn’t deal with change very well and this past month …

Spending Time With My Girls

It’s been a weird day. One I want to cherish forever but also one that could quite happily be brushed under the doormat. My eyes opened to the usual cries for “Mummy” from one possibly two of the girls. It’s Sunday so I ushered both P2 and P3 into my bed, shoving Hubby further towards the wall so we could …

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. …

This month has signified big changes in our routines with back to school, two of the girls starting new places and we’ve still got two birthdays and a wedding anniversary to look forward to by the end of September. P1 is now …

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 …

P3 Had Her Introductory Session At Nursery/Preschool

I have been waiting for this day for such a long time. I was awake so early, getting organised, putting my makeup on and my clothes. Typically P2 and P3 didn’t wake until quarter to eight, like really?! Why didn’t they do this in the holidays?! Somehow we still managed to be a little rushed out of the door. So …

Letter To My Nan – 4 Years

On this day four years ago my biggest baby, P1, started her primary school education back in Essex. That day holds so many precious memories. I’d dropped P1 off at school on time, not knowing anybody as we had been through an appeals process and subsequently missed any taster sessions they had. I needed to return back to the school …

Clip ‘n Climb Tonbridge Review

It’s no secret that my middle daughter is a little fearless daredevil. I feel like we spend a lot of time figuring out fun things for her to try out to really push her boundaries and we have been itching to take a trip to Clip ‘n Climb. I was a little nervous as last time we planned an activity …

Siblings 2017 – August

Like I said in the July Siblings post, the chaotic way of life was definitely not going to subside any time soon and I was so right. We are now well in the swings of the school holidays. In fact although I am going slightly insane, they really are flying by in a blur! It feels crazy already that it …

London With My Middle Girl For The Nut Job 2 Film Preview

Originally Sunday was meant to be a family day, but I woke up with a very poorly P3 in my bed and with P1 who could not walk due to an injury the day before. I felt really sad because we were meant to be heading to London for a film preview of The Nut Job 2. I desperately didn’t …

Drama & Destruction Wherever We Go

Last weekend we headed back to Essex but this time it wasn’t to meet up with family, we were there to see my best friend. This friend of mine is the type of friend that you can go months without seeing but when you do, it’s as if you were never apart. It had actually been about 18 months since …
