How to Keep Kids Entertained This Summer

With longer days, and higher temperatures outside it’s about time your family start sketching first summer plans. The capital is an obvious choice if you want to inspire your kids and leave them with plenty of new memories. Although London might not be the cheapest, and given the tourist peak season, difficult to plan for, it goes without saying that …

Rug Doctor Deep Carpet Cleaner Review

If you are new to my blog you may not know that we recently moved home. We moved to our first non-rental and part of doing up the entire property was fitting brand new carpet throughout. Honestly, moving felt like such a grown up stage of our lives even though we’d been living together in a rented property for the …

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 …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – A Snowy Week

I’m meant to share one, or two photos for My Sunday Photo each week but I just couldn’t pick from all of the lovely memories we’ve captured this week. What a week we have had across the UK! I posted about the snow day we had in Kent on Tuesday. That was the main dumping of snow that we had …

World Book Day 2018

It’s World Book Day. A yearly event that celebrates books and reading. I am a huge lover of a good book, especially children’s books now that I am a parent. I love the excitement every evening when we settle down for a our bedtime story. Sadly, the snowy weather has postponed the school celebration of World Book Day but that …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – A Family Photo

This may sound very strange considering both Hubby and I work at home for the majority of the week, but getting family time is actually quite rare. When I say family time, I mean where all five of us are together going out and doing something. This winter has killed my motivation. I just want to be indoors in the …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Daffodil Season

I walk to school or nursery every single day at least once, usually three times, and it’s a great way for me to start taking in my local area and noticing habits. Suddenly over the past week I have started to see shoots of little flowers emerging from their beds. For me, it’s a sign that Spring and warmer, longer …

Grown Up Time: Turn Your Bathroom Into A Spa

Before children came into my life, I remember a few special occasions where I would treat myself, friends or even family to a relaxation session at our local spa. Or making a weekend of it with my partner and staying in a posh spa retreat – facials, body massages, hot tubs, the smell of the warm wood in the sauna …

#BLOGMAS Day 22 – Our Fake Christmas Day

Growing up I always spent Christmas Day at my Mum’s house. My grandparents piled round and it was always a really chilled festive day. I’d play with my presents, we’d fill our tummies with food and just enjoy each other’s company. I have many photos of my Nan and Grandad sleeping on Christmas Day. Since we moved to Kent four …

#BLOGMAS Day 9 – Her First Christmas Performance

It’s that time of the year again, the time you either love or hate. Nativity time. I remember P2s first nativity at their nursery. I was so excited and put the effort into making her the angel outfit. P1 had never had nursery nativities and I was working before so never really had the time. This year was P2s first …

#BLOGMAS Day 5 – Our First Garden

It has been no secret of mine that I have wanted a garden for my girls to enjoy for such a long time. It feels like forever to be honest. So when we moved it was high up on my list. I never expected to be able to get such a big one though. It was run down as you …

It’s blogmas day four already. I have had the pleasure of being introduced to a company that I had never heard of before. The Groovy Food Company is a food brand that creates healthy alternatives for everyday essentials.

Why You Need A World Map In Your Home

When we moved house there was one room I was most excited about. Our dining room. We had never had a proper place for us to sit and have our meals, a table to craft at and bake cakes. I honestly haven’t got the words to explain my need for a dining room and my excitement.  Weirdly enough this is …
