Dreaming Of A Family Holiday

Whether you are a mum or not, you will know that parenting is exhausting. Even on a really good day when you are having a win moment, it is exhausting! Today was not a day full of win moments unfortunately. In fact, the past week has been totally draining. The kids are spending most of their time doing their best …

#BEDN – 12 – Your Local Area

I absolutely adore the area we live in. It is ranked at one of the richest towns in the UK which isn’t surprising and that theme sort of runs through the entire area. The health services are far more efficient and superior to the ones back in my home town, Essex. The schools are much better and that was one …

Musical Fun With Moo Music Sevenoaks

I thought I hated Autumn. I thought I hated the wind, rain and chilly weather. Actually this Autumn, for the first time ever I am embracing it and think that it is actually such a beautiful season. The colours are just so magical to watch beneath your feet and watching the leaves float from the trees is so soothing. But …

A Video Blog – Our Week November 2015

I am naturally beginning to take more videos of my girls. It’s a really good way to capture a moment or a memory. Technology makes storing these moments so easy too. I honestly believe that if I didn’t have my blog then I wouldn’t have half as many photos and video that I do of their childhood. Last week, Saturday …

“The attention just one little human needs is incredible”

This weekend is the usual first weekend of the month when P1 and P2 head back to Essex to spend time with my Mum. I’ve felt mixed emotions surrounding these weekends. The girls enjoy themselves and it gives us space but it hasn’t ever really made life easier. P3 loves to cause enough fuss and demand enough attention to make …

#BEDN – 5 – Fireworks Night

Tonight is Fireworks Night. Usually I would try and find a local display for us to go to, especially as the girls really loved the one at our local park recently but this year is a little different and we’ve actually just got back from a date night! My MiL had bought us tickets for a comedy night at the theatre …

#BEDN – 4 – Photography

It’s really crazy to think how far photography has come, especially very recently. From when I was a child there are plenty of very blurry, low lighting and low quality images of me. The photos are mainly of big events or birthdays taken on a camera that got dusted off for these momentous occasions. Go from back then to nearly …

Lalaloopsy & BABY Born Review

It’s a very strange time of the year for the children of bloggers. It’s a time when companies start pushing their services and products to get into the minds of the public ready for Christmas. We spend the months leading up to Christmas telling the kids to make a list, I’ve started because I didn’t want to end up buying …

#BEDN – 2 – Love Mondays

I think Monday has to be one of my favourite days of the week at the moment. Monday’s used to be one of the worst, it was either back to school for me and then it was back to work after a weekend but since being a stay at home mum to a school goer, Monday’s are about getting a …

A Letter From Santa

I can’t believe I’m about to write a post about this, already, but with Halloween over it’s time to start thinking about Christmas. There I’ve said it, I’ve said the C word. I am so excited about Christmas this year but I haven’t actually started even thinking about it yet. The shopping, the decorating and the food. We were contacted …

#BEDN – 1 – Something New About Yourself

It’s really crazy that we are now in November. I haven’t thought much about getting prepared for Christmas but it’s actually approaching at a rapid speed. This month I have decided to join in with the Blog Every Day in November (BEDN) blogging challenge. It’s meant to be fun and I only decided to do a few days ago so I’ve …

“I think the duty I hate the most is having to be nurse”

Parenting is a mixture of every job under the sun. It’s about being a chef, a taxi, a teacher, an actor, a body guard, a cleaner, a friend and an enemy. But I think the duty I hate the most is having to be nurse. It feels like we are currently in a never ending cycle of illness. Those germs …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 13 Months

To my Princess 3, You still look so much like a baby to me yet your personality is growing older by the day. You’re 13 months and there’s no hiding you are far from that tiny little newborn you once were. Since your birthday you have taken more and more steps. You’ll nearly walk the whole length way of our …

Why I Hate School Holidays

I always get so excited about school holidays. I’m a stay at home mum so I am lucky to be able to spend the holidays with my girls. I plan loads of things to do. Baking, painting, going to the park and swimming. But each and every school holiday we’ve ever experienced has gone far from to plan. I’ve been …

Halloween At Chessington World of Adventures Resort

What better way to kick the Half Term off than with a special trip to Chessington World of Adventures. When this email found its way into my inbox a month ago I was so flipping excited that words just cannot describe it. We’d been invited to go and experience an exclusive preview of two new attractions for their Howl’o’ween week …
