Finding The Right Time To Book That Family Holiday

It can be tricky to balance the daily running of your home and plan a family break at the same time. Between school, available dates, and the general buzz of a busy household, finding the time to search for the best prices on offer can often seem like a little dose of extra hassle that you just don’t have time …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Hating On The Snow This Weekend

On Friday we experienced a short lived snippet of what the spring and summer will look like for my family. It was warm enough to sit outside with no coats on. Yet this weekend we have been graced with more snow. Usually I’d be jumping for joy about the white flakes falling from the sky. Willing it, pleading it to …

Is It Lucky To Have Child Free Time?

I hear it so often when I tell people I’m child free and that we get to have this once a month for an entire weekend. “You’re so lucky!” But is it luck really? And is that luck mine or the kids? If you are new to my blog, I am a mum of three girls. I had my first …

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 …

She’s So Good At Puzzles

As a child I used to love doing puzzles. Don’t judge me for blowing my own trumpet, but I was pretty good! Strangely enough two of my three daughters have followed in my footsteps with not only a love for puzzles but a skill for them too. My eldest has lost a little bit of interest as she’s grown older …

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 – My Valentine

Valentines Day is like marmite; you either love it or you hate it. Which one are you? I have always felt it is a heavily commercialised day of celebration. I don’t believe you should need a specific day to show how much somebody means to you. We don’t buy gifts for each other, in fact I have been known to …

Our Historic Chatham Dockyard Day Out

He doesn’t like too much fuss so I’ll make this part brief, but my brother turned 18 years old last Saturday. Honestly, I have no idea how my not-so-little brother is officially an adult now. I remember when he was born, I adored him instantly especially as he gifted me a Furby. We had lots of fun growing up. To …

Her 5th Birthday

I had every intention of writing this post up much closer to her actual birthday. I can’t believe it was over a week ago now and that we have a five year old! P2’s birthday was a big deal for her, as each year goes by she seems more and more excited. This time we’d been counting down the days …

Reasons To Consider Taking Young Children On A Family Ski Holiday

There is nothing more satisfying than hearing your child squeal with delight. It’s even more exciting when the words that follow the squeal is “It’s snowing!”. I love snow, it’s about the only good thing about feeling frozen to my bones for months on end. There’s something just magical about seeing the white flakes dropping from the sky, settling and …

What I Read My Kids In A Week

A bit of a different post from me today. I wanted to share with you what we read in a week. When P1 was much younger I didn’t like reading at bedtime. Bedtime was always quite horrific in this house so reading became a treat thing, rather than a joyous and bonding experience. I have always loved books so I …

Letter To My Princesses 2 – 5 Years

To my Princess 2, It’s your fifth birthday today and I think I’m in slight denial about it. I had picked some nice posed photos of you smiling innocently, but actually these photos speak more about your personality. This past year you have grown in personality. Big changes happened where you went from being a little nursery go-er to a …

5 Reasons Why I Love My Daughter’s Preschool Nursery

Picking a nursery, school or preschool is always a pretty daunting task when you are a parent. P1 went to a day nursery back when we lived in Essex, P2 went to preschool although it was called a nursery and P3 now goes to the same one. I hope this post maybe gives you an insight when you decide to …

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 …
