Dodging The Rain & Having A Family Day

I have been feeling so much of that dreaded mum guilt lately. It sparks up the most at the weekends. We fill our weekdays with so many activities, trips to the shops, running arranges and getting the girls to various clubs that I sort of need the weekend as a break. It also becomes our cleaning time too. I always …

A Morning Stroll Around Haysden Country Park

Following a day of feeling numb and confused after England experiencing another terrorist attack, I felt like I needed to just get out. Which is slightly strange as I am worrying so much about crowded public spaces now. This week the weather is glorious. I’ve dusted off my summer shorts and crop tops even if it may only last a …

I recently taught them how to toast their own crumpets and it was lovely to see their proud faces when they did it all by themselves (with assistance obviously). We were recently asked by Ella’s Kitchen to take part in a cooking challenge with the girls using their brand new cooking book named the …

Young Mum? You Are Not Alone! #CMYANA

Channel Mum recently shared that 9 out of 10 Mums feel lonely and it started their You Are Not Alone (or YANA or use the hashtag #CMYANA) campaign. It has really hit the media and it has also got me thinking about my own experiences of being a mum and feeling lonely. I think I most felt the loneliness eight …

Mother & Daughter Horse Riding

It has been just over two months since my middle daughter had her very first horse riding lesson. We made the decision for her to continue horse riding. She took to it like duck to water and we wanted to focus on this skill we feel she has. Each time I have watched her grow in confidence and it’s been …

Our Easter Saturday At National Trust Bodiam Castle

For somebody who didn’t feel very Easter-y this year, we ended up doing quite a few Easter themed activities. Our Easter holidays were pretty much jam filled with different things for us to do and now we are back to school runs.

Adjusting To Warmer & Longer Days

Hands up if your Easter holidays were full of fun and warm weather? My hands are definitely up. I am a happier person when the weather is kind to us and my daughters adore being outside exploring. We don’t have a garden for ourselves so we had to find places to visit for pretty much every single day and I …

Chocolate Lolly Maker Review

We are heading into the Easter holidays. For us, they are pretty long. P2 always gets an extra week or so as her nursery runs as a private one and not strictly alongside state school holiday times. P1 has two weeks the poor sod. Any way, it’s definitely time to start thinking about activities, days out and things to do …

In fact he made our weekend plans and I am so glad he did because he found such a wonderful place to visit. Swanley New Barn Railway has …

An Easter Egg Hunt At Marsh Farm

We spent a weekend at my Grandad’s and had an amazing time at the Marsh Farm Easter event. This year, I haven’t really had much planned and I certainly …

A Trip To Little Street Maidstone

I am always on the hunt for new ways to entertain the kids outside of our own home. When we received an invite to head along to the blogger preview of Little Street in Maidstone, I was pretty excited. I honestly had no idea what it was going to be like except the advertised “kid sized town” which instantly made …

Going To The Library

It feels like such a long time ago since reading a story at bedtime felt like a chore. I never used to see the importance of books despite my own love for reading and writing. But I also experienced mum guilt surrounding the topic of bedtime story time and eventually I made it part of our routine. I don’t feel …

A Family Trip To Cadbury World 2017

It’s been quite a few years since my first ever visit to Cadbury World. I remember having an amazing time and had only been back once again when P1 was very young. Over the past five years I have tried to convince Hubby to let us go there as a family and finally we went. We arrived about half an …
