My Relationship With Food

Growing up I don’t think food was really my friend. I’d turn my nose up at anything remotely odd looking or smelling without even actually tasting it. I wouldn’t dare to touch a pepperoni pizza or a Chinese, let alone Curry or even fruit. I was always the reason we chose certain restaurants or had certain things for dinner and …

ASDA Little Angels First Pants Review

I have a thing for nappies. I’d like to think I’ve settled a bit after 7 years of parenting, but that thing is still there. It’s a little OCD like actually and can be quite embarrassing. I tell myself I’m like it because I want to make sure my girls are most comfortable but I’m not entirely true that’s the …

Open Farm Sunday 2016

I’ve started to get a bit stuck for ideas when it comes to the weekends when we just have P3. I feel like we’ve exhausted the park and soft play is always packed at weekends. She’s not quite old enough for big trips to the local castles either. I posted on social media that we were struggling for an idea …

New Sky Kids App – A Visit To Sky Studios At The O2

I still remember being around 7 or 8 years old and being completely dazzled by the Millennium Dome. My mum had arranged for us to visit at some point during the year when the Millennium Experience was there. I’ve only been there once more since and that was a rushed visit so when I was invited to return, I just …

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats Recipe

My friend introduced me to overnight oats a while ago but it has taken me months to find the courage to actually try them for myself. In fact at first I couldn’t imagine them to be very appetising at all but that’s because I am a very visual eater and also very picky with my porridge in particular. Now I …

Learning About Water With Robinsons #EnjoyMoreWater

The first half of our half term was pretty pants. Our car is in the garage again because the garage has messed up big time so we were left confined to our house for a few days. With several planned blog trips to attend we decided to hire a car. Going from the Range Rover to a little Vauxhall Mokka …

A Brand New Design

For a while my old logo was frustrating me. It wasn’t really up to date with us as a family. The child that represented P3 was wearing a white babygro and had been drawn before we even found out she was princess. I’d tried, and failed, to draw a new one but nothing quite lived up to the old one. …

ASDA Little Angels Spa Day At The Dorchester Hotel

I have longed for a spa break for my entire adult life. I have never been to a spa nor have I ever experienced a professional massage of any sort. So when a pretty exciting email found its way into my inbox I rushed to respond. A spa experience at the Dorchester Hotel with ASDA Little Angels. How could a girl refuse …

Embracing The Busy Life

We have had so many opportunities for photos this week but I’ve picked this selection because I really think they sum up the week we’ve just had. This week has been so fun and I don’t think I’ve ever felt so content with life like I do right now. Ok, there’s been the low moments of arguing between my girls …

5 Clever Ways To Supplement Your Income

I recently came across a fascinating article which underlined just how members of our generation have been squeezed, and how a combination of factors such as debt, unemployment and rising house prices have contributed to a steady decline in income over the last three decades. It rather confirms what we already knew – these aren’t easy times to carve out …
