Gymboree Sevenoaks 15 Months On

It has been fifteen months since I first went to Gymboree and wrote our review of the venue here. I thought it was about time that I updated everybody on that part of our lives now that P2 and P3 are both much older. Right at the beginning of our Gymboree journey P2 was just over two years old and P3 was …

Doing Makeup On My Three Year Old

There’s no hiding from the fact my Hubby is extremely outnumbered. He’s even begun to pick pink or girly things from shops over a more masculine version. Like pink shower gel instead of a green or blue for example. I love that I have daughters. I have visions of shopping, spa days and afternoon teas when they are older. I …

When it comes to girls toys, specifically dolls, I have seen many different versions and we actually have a huge toy box just for dolls. However, we received the new Lalaloopsy Babies Potty Surprise Doll and it’s nothing like I’ve ever seen before. In the box there is the Lalaloopsy Baby called Jewel Sparkles, a potty, a bowl with spoon …

Special Needs Diary #8 – Back To School

Dear Diary, I have so many mixed feelings about this year ahead for P1. We now have a Year 3 pupil which means she’s now following the Key Stage 2 curriculum. Obviously that means she’ll be doing more focused learning rather than the play side of school now and there’s only four more years until she’s in secondary school. I …

Cath Kidston Launches New Range In Specsavers

Growing up I always went to the same opticians. I always saw the same man there and he was pretty amazing. Diagnosing my eye problems much earlier than they usually can as I was very young. I used to take my little caterpillar toy along with me and run up and down the waiting room. I was remembered for that …

Visiting Ightham Mote – National Trust

We were recently gifted a whole years National Trust membership from a family member. For a long time we have toyed with the idea but never felt like we could warrant the need for membership as we don’t really go to national trust places. However, I realised that we don’t go purely because without a membership, visiting our local National …

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. …

Siblings 2016 – September

For the most part of last month my girls spent a lot of time together. Everybody is now back at school and routines have returned. I think I’ve grown to love the summer holidays. Previously they always seemed like such a daunting time but the reality of the recent holidays was that the girls have formed an incredibly tight bond. …

Happy 100th Birthday Roald Dahl! #RoaldDahl100

I don’t think there’s a single person that hasn’t heard of the name Roald Dahl. If you haven’t then where the heck have you been because today is Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday! I wasn’t actually aware that this amazingly talented author passed away before I was even born, in 1990. Roald Dahl directly wrote 39 books but the ones I …

Getting Active With PITCH Brioche Pasquier

We have gone about three months without a car recently and I have never been so active in my life. I think I’ve been living in a mix of complete exhaustion but actually feeling quite good about it. Being active has so many benefits and I definitely think I’ve started to feel some of them in that time. We were …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Seven

A mixture of exhaustion, short tempered children, a bit of sun burn on Hubby’s back and the end of holiday blues, meant that Hubby and I weren’t really feeling our last full day on the Isle of Wight. We attempted to put on a brave face and headed to The Needles.  I had no idea what to expect from the …

Back To School With Smiggle Stationery

I normally hate the school holidays and wish for them to go quicker but I definitely wish they had been longer this year. We have spent so many days creating memories that will last forever as I took far too many photos. We are now back at school and at some point my eldest daughter became a Key Stage 2 student …
