Part 5 – Universal Orlando Resort – The Last Day

Waking up on our last day in the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel felt strange. Our time in Orlando seemed to have whizzed by in a busy blur full of happy memories and laughing that we just didn’t want to go home. I felt more aware of our surroundings and found myself taking it it, taking mental pictures as I longed …

Getting Through The Sickness Bug

I suffer quite badly with migraines and I spend nearly every day worrying about when my next one will come on. They happen with no warning and I haven’t quite found out what the triggers are yet. Parenting with a migraine is absolutely awful. All you want to do is hide away and sleep it off but you just can’t …

Halloween Chocolate Cupcakes Recipes

I have gone a little Baking crazy recently and I think P2 has cottoned on to this too. She asks me frequently if we can bake, it’s usually at the most inconvenient time but she’s getting really good at baking. I spotted some cute little Halloween cupcake decorations in Poundland the other day and instantly knew that P2 would love …

6 Things No One Tells You About Travelling With Kids

Travelling with kids is great fun. And by fun we mean it’s like spending a few hours in one of Dante’s seven circles of hell. While you might consider that reference to be a little extreme, here are six things no one tells you about travelling with kids to change your mind: You won’t have enough room in the boot …

Clementoni Princess Magnetic Drawing Board Review

My girls really enjoy getting crafty and drawing. Sometimes I feel incredible guilt when I am just far too busy to entertain the mess that getting creative can bring. Over the years I have come to love Magnetic Drawing Boards and we’ve had many different shapes and sizes of them. Recently P2 was sent her very own Disney Princess Magnetic …

Georgie The Interactive Puppy Review

If you were to ask P2 what pet she’d love to have, her answer will always be “I want a Chihuahua”. Whenever she looked a photos of different dogs it would always be the little chihuahuas that caught her attention and that’s when she learnt the breed and ultimately has fallen in love. We don’t have a garden at the …

Num Noms Lipgloss Truck Playset Review

When we recently went to Bella Italia for a Num Noms Event, the girls got to play with the Num Noms Lipgloss Truck Playset and they loved it. I was really pleased when we received one after the event to review. P3 got to play with it first but I loved seeing the reactions of the other two. Num Noms are really …

Golden Bear Sleep Tight All Night Iggle Piggle Review

It’s no secret that we have one child that really struggles with sleep. P2 will be four years old in February and I think I can probably count the amount of times she’s ever slept through on my fingers and toes. It has come to light that it’s actually just us that she doesn’t sleep for, she’s fine with my …

Feber Dareway Review – A Mini Segway For Kids

I am going to open this post by saying that my girls are officially spoilt by my blogging life. When I saw the biggest box ever arrive at our door, I knew exactly what it was, the Feber Dareway. The girls saw exactly what it was from the packaging on the side of the box too. It was hard to …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 2 Years Old

To my Princess 3, These past 2 years have been the most exhausting of my life! I remember getting through my birthday feeling thankful that I didn’t have to share my birthday and wedding anniversary with your birthday too. We’d all joked that it would have been funny and just our luck if I had gone into labour. But I …

There are many things I hate about Facebook and also, many things I love about it too. A few weeks ago something popped up on my news feed. A friend had shared a group that was about to open it’s doors. The Soft Play Cafe. She had only shared it because the photo that was used happened to feature her …

Orchard Toys Once Upon A Time Puzzle Review

I have loved Orchard Toys long before I was a parent myself. Becoming an ambassador for them this year has sort of been a bit of a life goal I suppose. I feel quite passionate about them and I know this is beginning to sound like I may need therapy. But it’s all true and thankfully my girls are sharing …

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 …

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 …

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 …
