Protecting Bottoms With Bepanthen

It’s always nice to receive something in the post. Our postman/woman is always pretty busy delivering various things to us and I’m sure she thinks I’m some sort of shopaholic but being a blogger that works with brands means we get to try out some lovely things. We had a lovely package arrive to us from Bepanthen the other week and …

Our New Family Car

We’ve been in Kent for just over two years now. Right at the very beginning I was wrapped up in the death of my Nan, unpacking our belongings, P1 starting a new school and P2 becoming more and more mobile.

“I’ve known about it for a while and it’s nothing serious at all”

I read other blogs every day and recently I read this very inspiring one from Along Came Cherry and a specific paragraph really stayed with me: If my kids are playing up then there is always a reason, either something has upset them or something is going on with me.

Our Weekend At Gladwins Farm

Letter To My Princess 3 – 1 Year

To my Princess 3, You dramatically entered our world the day after my birthday. I’d promised I wouldn’t share my birthday with not only my second anniversary and another birthday.

“I hate Autumn!”

The weather seems to get blamed for quite a few things. This time I’m blaming it for my lack of mojo to blog. It also seems I’m not alone in my missing inspiration as a few other bloggers have recently declared a dry patch, ironically seeing as the weather certainly isn’t dry! We are only a few weeks into Autumn …

Barbie Rock ‘n Royals Review

Barbie has been around my whole entire life and they have certainly come a long way since then too. P1 has a huge collection of various Barbie’s who are mostly naked with scraggly hair now. The technology side of things has also improved and P1 especially loves watching all the fantastic movies that come out. The latest one is the …

All of my close friends have boys or at least one of each. I have girls. Three girls, three hair styles to create and at the moment three dresses. There’s going to be four sets of “the time of the month’s” and makeup, shoes and boyfriends. My girls really are very different to one another. P1 is slim, wobbly and …

“We took an obligatory first day at nursery photo”

P2 has been ready for nursery for a while and it feels like such a long time since we joined various waiting lists. I needed to give her more than I could offer. For her to build friendships and grow her independence and confidence.  To follow some structure as she learns more and more about the world she lives in. …

My Sunday Photo – 13/09/2015

This weeks My Sunday Photo is a photo from my iPhone. It was taken last night in the pitch black so the quality is absolutely awful and I’ll apologise for that as I try to take pride in my blog showcasing high quality images. I didn’t even take this photo myself, one of my lovely friends did. Last night, when …

Being Busy & Thinking Ahead

We’ve successfully completed the first full week back to our school routine, although I’m still not quite used to the early mornings and I keep sleeping through the alarms that were switched off for six weeks leaving us pretty rushed every morning. Having a set routine seems to help P1s behaviour though and she’s been really good up until the …
