Halloween At BeWILDerwood Norfolk

Before our amazing Universal Orlando trip was arranged, we had plans to head to Norfolk to see Hubby’s Grandparents. I actually hadn’t been up to their house in Norfolk before which meant the girls hadn’t either so this was a trip I was really excited about. As there is a lot of us we decided to book into a local …

Taking A Break With An Autumn Walk & A Vlog

We recently had three consecutive holidays. We had two mini breaks and the epic holiday to Orlando. They all came at once and we were so super lucky but I was bound to feel the holiday blues when we returned to England. Those blues have really hit. The two weeks before our holidays were the most stressful that I’ve felt …

A Simple Halloween

Last year P1 went with my MiL for a Halloween party and missed trick or treating. She was devastated and this year she kept asking if she could come with us. With nothing else planned for Halloween day and evening, we agreed to go trick or treating. Hubby bought a super cute small pumpkin to carve. He spent ages marking …

Halloween Half Term – A Microbreak With Marriott Hotels In The UK

We have had a pretty insane October Half Term. We kick started our adventures with a chance to discover our #WeekendSelf with Marriott Hotels. We were invited to have a microbreak. I can imagine a microbreak without children being pretty chilled out, but for us at the moment we needed a place to explore that was both fun for adults …

Bratz Insta-Pets Doll Review

I recently got the pleasure of being insulted by an older man for the job that I have. Apparently social media and the internet is ruining the world. But quite frankly I believe it’s enhancing the world and that’s why I do what I do. Kind of. But also, I don’t really think you can hide away from social media …

Learning More About McDonald’s Restaurants

I have many memories of McDonald’s. My Grandad used to take me for a lunch when we went to visit my Great-Grandad. My Mum frequently took me as a treat after my swimming lessons. I used to pop by with school friends. I headed there for my work lunches too sometimes. My Hubby also shares a love for McDonald’s but …

Our Last Update With DryNites

We have come to an end of our DryNites journey. For the past few months we have had the help of the DryNites team and they have given us so many useful tools to help conquer P2s bed wetting phase. I got to go on a sleep retreat. I learned new techniques. We’ve had the opportunity to put DryNites Pyjama …

We’re Off On A Dream Holiday To Orlando

I get sent blogging opportunities near enough daily. Some are just not of interest, some are fun and some are so dreamy you feel a little giddy about them. A few weeks ago, I was amongst hundreds who applied to go on a blog trip to Orlando and I felt there really was no chance in hell that my little …

The Cheeky Elf Review

When I was a child Christmas meant a time for Father Christmas to bring presents. On Christmas Eve we would set out the plate for him; a mince pie, some milk and a carrot for Rudolph. We’d then pretend to be asleep for as long as possible before our eyes forced it upon us. I remember waking up before it …

Siblings 2016 – October

We are well and truly in Autumn now. For some reason I feel that family life is a lot harder during the colder months. It’s so much more planning and prepping just to step outside your house. Do we need wellies? Do we need coats? What kind of coat, a big thick one or a nice thin rain mac? It’s …

Birthday Shopping With My Grandad & Mum

For Christmas last year my Grandad promised me a shopping trip. It was his way of giving me a present. I ended up going child free and meeting my Grandad and Auntie at the shopping centre. We did lots of shopping and then had lunch on my Grandad’s wallet which obviously is always fantastic. I never know what to ask …

Num Noms Lipgloss Truck Playset Review

When we recently went to Bella Italia for a Num Noms Event, the girls got to play with the Num Noms Lipgloss Truck Playset and they loved it. I was really pleased when we received one after the event to review. P3 got to play with it first but I loved seeing the reactions of the other two. Num Noms are really …

Golden Bear Sleep Tight All Night Iggle Piggle Review

It’s no secret that we have one child that really struggles with sleep. P2 will be four years old in February and I think I can probably count the amount of times she’s ever slept through on my fingers and toes. It has come to light that it’s actually just us that she doesn’t sleep for, she’s fine with my …

My 24th Birthday At Bewl Water

Since becoming a Mum my birthdays do not feel as significant. Apart from the fact I am getting older, my birthday just feels like a normal day. I wake up with the kids early, I get them breakfast, get them ready for wherever they are going that day. However, this year I invited my Grandad along for my birthday and …
