But for some reason despite the sun shining beautifully, this Thursday didn’t want to be our usual Thursday day. I got ready …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #18/52

We haven’t done a massive food shop in such a long time. We seem to have got into the habit of just going to our local supermarket for meals for that day or the next few days. Which was working fine but with our recent holiday the food cupboards had got quite bare. The kids were demanding food constantly and …

A #MomsDayOffContest With Crocs

I spend every second of my day doing something child related. I also nearly always have our youngest attached to my leg, hip or holding my hand because she’s a definite Mummy’s girl at the moment. To find time for myself I used to go to a fitness class but motivation for that has disappeared and so it’s become a …

A Family Day Out At The Eden Project

When we first checked the weather forecast for our little trip to Cornwall, it didn’t look great, but actually it’s been pretty beautiful.

Twinkl Educational Publishing Review

My eldest is struggling academically. I never thought she would. When she was at nursery she was flourishing but going to school changed her. Her writing is falling well behind what it should be and so when Twinkl got in touch I was really excited about having some interesting new resources to hand to help my 7 year old bloom again. …

LeapFrog Musical Rainbow Tea Party Review

I frequently feel sorry for our youngest daughter. She has to grow up wearing hand me downs and owning preloved toys. In actual fact she doesn’t really own any of her own toys. I stupidly forget that her development is at a completely different stage to her bigger sisters. One thing she really thrives doing is playing with her sisters …
