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.

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 …

This summer Hubby put a budget away so that we could go on some mini breaks. It was so exciting to have the chance to pick pretty much anywhere. Hubby randomly decided that Glamping would be a fun idea and found availability at Chalke Valley Camping in Salisbury and so we booked to stay for two nights. Unfortunately the journey …

A Surprise Trip To LEGOLAND Windsor

Life Is Changing

The last two weeks have felt like they whizzed by in a blur of emotions that I didn’t anticipate. The week in the lead up to P2 finishing her preschool years felt bittersweet. We had sports day and even that made me well up with emotions. One of the Mum’s arranged a little get together for the girls leaving and …

Children’s Amazing! Magazine Review

Home learning is a thing I struggle with every single day with P1. I’m sure you can relate to it because I certainly can, that when you get home you just want to chill out. Learning and doing something educational certainly isn’t a priority. I was pretty interested when the people behind the children’s magazine, Amazing! got in touch to …

I definitely think that planning a children’s party is definitely something that makes me very anxious. I worry about all the things I might forget or that something will go drastically wrong. The Disney Store recently got in contact with me to let me know about their Disney Party section on the website and they asked if I’d like to …

It’s Strawberry Picking Season Again

The first time I went strawberry picking was last year and once we’d been, we were there nearly every week during strawberry season. We went to Open Farm Sunday and I’ve sort of got a bug for the whole country living, farming thing. It probably doesn’t help that I’ve been binge watching Heartland which is all about the country way …
