Months ago my Mum booked tickets to go to the Dinosaurs In The Wild experience in London. I got an invitation to the VIP Launch event which was happening the day before my Mum was due to take my girls. I decided to send her on my behalf so this post includes photos taken by my Mum, she gave me …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – My Valentine

Valentines Day is like marmite; you either love it or you hate it. Which one are you? I have always felt it is a heavily commercialised day of celebration. I don’t believe you should need a specific day to show how much somebody means to you. We don’t buy gifts for each other, in fact I have been known to …

Our Historic Chatham Dockyard Day Out

He doesn’t like too much fuss so I’ll make this part brief, but my brother turned 18 years old last Saturday. Honestly, I have no idea how my not-so-little brother is officially an adult now. I remember when he was born, I adored him instantly especially as he gifted me a Furby. We had lots of fun growing up. To …

Siblings 2018 – February

With the weather still pretty pants we have been spending a lot of time indoors at the weekends. I’d love to say we’ve been embracing the colder, wet days but we just haven’t. The girls get miserable when they get cold so it’s not enjoyable to adventure too far away from home at the moment. We’ve had a bit of …

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 …

What I Read My Kids In A Week

A bit of a different post from me today. I wanted to share with you what we read in a week. When P1 was much younger I didn’t like reading at bedtime. Bedtime was always quite horrific in this house so reading became a treat thing, rather than a joyous and bonding experience. I have always loved books so I …

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 …

Getting Crafty With A Willow & Wild Box

A few days ago my girls were really lucky to receive three Willow & Wild Box‘s in the post, each personalised with their names. I was really shocked to find that a gardening subscription box could fit through the letter box but they did! One of our focuses for 2018 is to get our garden usable and family friendly, so …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – I Had A Piece Of The Beach Inside My Ear

Have you ever taken a shell home from the beach? My girls love to sneak more and more into their pockets in the hope that I won’t catch them. Spending time on the beach is always such an adventure for children. I remember during one of our many trips to the beach when on holiday on the Isle Of Wight …

Boy Or Girl? Find Out Our Baby Secrets!

It’s no secret that there’s a new craze for blind bag toys and mini collectable toys. My girls love them but personally I like to know what I’m buying with my money. Kids love the surprise factor and it’s quite like unwrapping a birthday present. We have so many varieties of little collectables so when we heard about the brand …

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 Birthday 2017!

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 …

#BLOGMAS Day 22 – Our Fake Christmas Day

Growing up I always spent Christmas Day at my Mum’s house. My grandparents piled round and it was always a really chilled festive day. I’d play with my presents, we’d fill our tummies with food and just enjoy each other’s company. I have many photos of my Nan and Grandad sleeping on Christmas Day. Since we moved to Kent four …

#BLOGMAS Day 20 – Santa’s Grotto At Coolings Nature Trail

I didn’t think that my little family had many traditions. Things that we do each year especially around Christmas time. But it turns out that we do have some. One of those is the Santa’s grotto at the Green & Pleasant Nature Trail near our home. It’s actually my mother in law who books this grotto for the girls. It’s …
