It’s always a little bit exciting when you get invited to a Num Noms UK Party in London and that’s exactly where we headed during half term last week. It was a party to celebrate the launch of series 5 Num Noms in the UK. We caught a train, it was the first train after rush hour time so we …

New Rides At Peppa Pig World Paultons Park!

Our favourite family theme park is most definitely Paultons Park and there’s no secret about it. We love the variety of things available. We recently received a Royal Invitation to the Grand Preview Days of the two new rides in the Peppa Pig World part of Paultons Park. The girls were thrilled. Sadly P1 was still suffering with chickenpox so …

Shared Bedroom Tour | House Reveal #4

If you saw the last house reveal with the Box Room Tour you will know that one big change for the girls was their bedroom changes. P1 had graduated to her own room leaving P2 and P3 to share still. There’s only 19 months between them so it made sense for it to be this way. We had big choices to make …

Box Room Tour | House Reveal #3

I’m back with another room tour! This time it’s the box room of our house. We’d always said that P1 would get her own room when we moved. It was something that was really important to me as it had been suggested that it could help P1’s behaviour. Just like the rest of this house the room was a magnolia …

Spending Time With My Girls

It’s been a weird day. One I want to cherish forever but also one that could quite happily be brushed under the doormat. My eyes opened to the usual cries for “Mummy” from one possibly two of the girls. It’s Sunday so I ushered both P2 and P3 into my bed, shoving Hubby further towards the wall so we could …

My Feelings On Our Last Night At Home

I am writing this sat on the end of P3s bed. There’s the sound of snoring and a sense of peace finally. It’s been a long weekend of lots of tears, tantrums and shouting. We have boxes piled up everywhere ready to throw our entire life into a van and unpack it the other side to start a fresh adventure. …

Special Needs Diary #9 – Homework

Dear Diary, I have huge concerns about P1s education. She doesn’t seem wired academically like I was. I always enjoyed school I think apart from the bullying and being picked on for being small. I did relatively well at learning when I wasn’t talking to my friends. But P1 is falling behind. Key Stage 2 is naturally harder than what …

There’s lots I miss about my home town and living near my family but on the other hand there’s many more things I don’t miss. The one thing that always gives me a heavy heart whenever I think about it, is the ease of seeing my Grandad. When I lived in Essex I was always just five or ten minutes …
