Her 5th Birthday

I had every intention of writing this post up much closer to her actual birthday. I can’t believe it was over a week ago now and that we have a five year old! P2’s birthday was a big deal for her, as each year goes by she seems more and more excited. This time we’d been counting down the days …

Reasons To Consider Taking Young Children On A Family Ski Holiday

There is nothing more satisfying than hearing your child squeal with delight. It’s even more exciting when the words that follow the squeal is “It’s snowing!”. I love snow, it’s about the only good thing about feeling frozen to my bones for months on end. There’s something just magical about seeing the white flakes dropping from the sky, settling and …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Finally On The Waiting List

This week has been a really good one for us as a family. P2 turned 5 years old this week and we had a family trip out, it’s snowed and been frosty a few mornings too but the best news we’ve had this week is to do with P1. Right at the beginning of the week P1 had another routine …

I’m Featured On Blogger Love

This year I want to dip my toe in the world of creating content for other blogs and not just my own. I have seen many other bloggers do this but have always been scared to approach anyone in case I wasn’t that interesting or my writing wasn’t good enough. Then I saw a fellow blogger, Emma from Em’s World, …

Letter To My Princesses 2 – 5 Years

To my Princess 2, It’s your fifth birthday today and I think I’m in slight denial about it. I had picked some nice posed photos of you smiling innocently, but actually these photos speak more about your personality. This past year you have grown in personality. Big changes happened where you went from being a little nursery go-er to a …

5 Reasons Why I Love My Daughter’s Preschool Nursery

Picking a nursery, school or preschool is always a pretty daunting task when you are a parent. P1 went to a day nursery back when we lived in Essex, P2 went to preschool although it was called a nursery and P3 now goes to the same one. I hope this post maybe gives you an insight when you decide to …

Juggling A Special Needs Child With A Sibling At School Too

I actually drafted the title of this post a good few weeks ago, just after I had to juggle the need to be in two places at once for two different children of mine. But actually even more has happened since then. Since having two children in primary school and one in nursery, I have been really struggling to organise …

Siblings 2018 – January

It’s a brand new year. 2018 will be the fourth year we have taken part in the Sibling Project that is run by the lovely Lucy at Dear Beautiful.

Special Needs Diary #13 – A Long Needed Update On Our Autism Journey

It’s been nearly a whole year since I last updated or spoke properly about P1’s special needs. It has been such an exhausting year but I think that we are heading in the right direction finally. I learn new things about P1 each day yet it’s hard to actually pin point the differences when people ask us. How do you …

Hosting My First Christmas On Boxing Day

When we moved homes, I was so excited that it was in plenty of time for Christmas. We could finally have a proper sized tree and actually host family. Sadly my MiL has already made plans for Christmas Day with her own in laws so it meant our Christmas was just for us. Instead we decided to host Boxing Day …

Christmas Day 2017!

We had a very different Christmas this year. In the past we have spent it round other family members houses. This year was the first year we’ve stayed at home and I quite enjoyed the change. It started how every Christmas starts, with opening of presents. We went a little overboard this year. I’m not ashamed about it though as …

Christmas Eve in this household is all about my eldest daughter. This little pickle made her early appearance on Christmas Eve nine years ago and since then, Christmas has changed! We put pause to festive plans to celebrate her birthday. She woke up quite early, I asked her to wait a little while for everybody else to wake up. Then …

Siblings 2017 – December – Looking Back On A Year

The third year done and dusted of the Siblings project. I can’t believe it! I’ve had my completed set of sisters for three years now. This photography project has been the only one I have stuck at. I love documenting our journey and how they grow. I think the previous two years have been the ones where you can see …

“Mummy! Milky”

I hear the words “Mummy! Milky” day in and day out. It’s a 24/7 occurrence and it comes out of two of my three darling daughters mouths. I honestly feel like I’m going crazily insane about it. It’s controlling nearly every breath I take and I am so tired. I’ll start with P2 seeing as that issue has been the …
