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 …

Sykes Cottages Review – Redwood Broadstairs

We have had some amazing opportunities to travel around England. As a family we always pick to travel west of where we live as I like to think we are exploring the country we live in. Recently we decided to change our habit and Sykes Cottages took us along the east coast of Kent to a beautiful cottage in Broadstairs …

The Belfry Hotel & Resort Review

For our second night in Birmingham and following our visit to Cadbury World, we headed further North to Sutton Coldfield. The Belfry Hotel & Resort is award winning and set in over 500 acres of countryside. I was pretty excited about this hotel visit as my Grandad had told me that he had stayed there over 40 years ago! As we entered …

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 …

Win A Family Ticket To Marsh Farm’s Easter Eggstravaganza 2017

I didn’t realise my love for Easter until we went to Marsh Farm last year for their Easter Egg Hunt. I had decided to stay with my Grandad for the weekend without Hubby and wanted to find somewhere to go. Marsh Farm was a childhood place for me to visit and I really wanted my girls to experience the farm …

We Lost Our February To A Chest Infection

I say it a lot but I really hate winter and cooler weather. It brings with it all the brilliant germs that seem to hang around for a while. In fact this time we lost an entire month to the nasty buggers. It started at the very end of January which feels like a life time ago now. P1 began …

Happy Pancake Day! Or Shrove Tuesday. It’s the last day to feast before Lent and Shrove Tuesday is more traditionally known for a day of consuming pancakes. We love pancakes in this house especially P1 and we have them every weekend when there’s time to stand and make them.  But this pancake day the team at Num Noms have challenged …

Unveiling Their Inner Genie With Fisher-Price Shimmer & Shine Toys

In the first year of my blogging journey I got to work with Fisher-Price. Our house rapidly became a museum of their toys but as the girls got older the Fisher-Price toys moved on to new owners and the plastic reduced. The thing is, for me FP produced toys for younger children and that’s the view I have carried with …

Go Ape Tree Top Junior Adventure – When Things Don’t Go To Plan

My middle daughter who has just turned four is a little dare devil. We realised this during a trip to Paultons Park last year. She wanted to go on all of the rides and she did, including the rather scary big ones more than once. She was fearless. Then whilst at Universal Orlando Resort P2 begged us to go on …

My Top Tips For Tackling Head Lice & Nits

I’m not sure it’s something to shout from the roof tops, but I’d like to think I’ve now got some experience in tackling head lice and nits. After going seven years without getting a case of the dreaded creepy crawlies, then it suddenly felt like we were infested for weeks. But we are out the other side and I wanted …

Siblings 2017 – February

I’ve felt like the month has flown by and it’s absurd that we are already in February. February is a big month for us. P2 turned four years old, my stepdad is giving my mum one of his kidneys and the girls are starting new groups, activities and having play dates again. I’m writing our Siblings post with only a …

Siblings 2016 – November

This past month has been an absolute crazy one for us as a family. We’ve spent it partly in USA and when in the UK we’ve been in three different counties. There has been so many opportunities for making memories for us as a family but also for my girls as sisters. I have really enjoyed watching them this month …

A Local Dog Show & Weekend Vlog

I just can’t believe how lucky we have been with the weather this summer. It’s allowed us to create so many memories as a family and we’ve visited places we’ve never been to before. Last Sunday the sun was shining brightly once again and the heat was incredible. We decided to head to the dog show at Riverhill Himalayan Gardens. …

My Sunday Photo – 28/06/2015

I don’t really have any words this week to accompany My Sunday Photo. We’ve had a week of mixed emotions between all three of the girls. Happiness, worry and of course love. I took this photo of P2 yesterday whilst she was watching her sisters play with the cornflour gloop we’d made. I just love it.

Leaving The Recluse Behind

When I had P1 I was made to feel ashamed of myself by some mums at the school, despite the fact all my fellow school “friends” we’re very supportive. The petition to have me removed from the school only made me more determined to prove them wrong. But as time went on and P1 arrived it was clear that becoming …
