4 Unusual Easter Gifts

It’s that time again – when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus by eating twice our own body weight in chocolate. The giving and receiving of chocolate Easter eggs has been a tradition for more than 100 years. So this year, why not forget the tradition and rather than an egg, give your loved ones an unusual Easter gift? Don’t …

Embracing My Middle Daughter

I frequently forget to focus on all the great things my girls do. Instead getting fixated on the bad, the naughty behaviour or habits they have. Stuck in the same rut of routine and the battle of bedtime. But it’s the start of our Easter holidays, well for P2 anyway as her nursery always breaks up a week earlier than …

Over the past three years I have seen a new tradition of hampers or baskets being created around Christmas, Valentine’s, Easter and Halloween and each time I have good intentions to join …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #12/52

As you can guess by the lateness of my My Sunday Photo post, our Sunday has been pretty boring. Pretty much all day we have been relaxing with Netflix and gathering energy for the next few days of yet more walking to school. P1s day was probably the most exciting. She had a trampoline party to attend which she really …

The Mum’s Guide to Father’s Day

Over the last 50 years, there’s been a real shift in how things work in the home. Previously, women (mostly) stayed in the house and men went out to work – but, as we know, that pattern is changing dramatically. Nowadays, both partners are responsible for childcare, chores and errands. More than 200,000 British fathers are stay-at-home-dads, and a great …

Siblings 2016 – March 2016

Being a member of a 3 part sister bond must be extremely hard. There’s always someone to fight against for attention, for cuddles and generally with each other. I worry daily about their relationships with each other. Part of me feels that P1 is pushed aside due to school, that she doesn’t get very much time with her sisters to …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #11/52

This week has been an odd one. It’s been taken up by a lot of walking and it feels like that has consumed us. Not having a car is a super pain and I owe a lot to several mums at P1s school who have bent over backwards to help us. I am so eternally grateful for their kindness. Today …

A Film Night At The School

Every year P1s school hosts a film night. She’s always wanted to go but for some reason or other we just never have. I’m blaming it on having two other young ones, not being able to drive the previous years and having a pretty strict bedtime. She missed Frozen in Reception and then How To Train A Dragon last year. …
