#MakeTracks With A Family & Friends Railcard This Autumn

I pop on a train quite frequently for blog related shindigs but it’s actually quite rare for us to go with the kids or as a family. A few months ago I took P2 by herself to London and she had such a brilliant adventure that it made me want to experience train adventures more often.  We was asked by …

#MySundayPhoto – Snails Pace Of Life

It has shockingly been well over a year since I last took part in My Sunday Photo and after spending some time with the blogger who hosts this linky, I felt inspired to join in again. I definitely feel like I have been losing my personal blogging mojo recently and perhaps this may help ignite it once more. I found …

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.

P1 is now …

Her First Day At Preschool

I have read so many posts in the past week about parents feeling emotional about their children starting school. I’ve never been able to relate to that feeling, I’ve never really felt that emotional attachment to my children, the sentimental need to keep drawings. In fact I thought I had something wrong with me until today. I had little sleep …

Drama & Destruction Wherever We Go

Last weekend we headed back to Essex but this time it wasn’t to meet up with family, we were there to see my best friend. This friend of mine is the type of friend that you can go months without seeing but when you do, it’s as if you were never apart. It had actually been about 18 months since …

Hosting A Disney Party Play Date

I definitely think that planning a children’s party is definitely something that makes me very anxious. I worry about all the things I might forget or that something will go drastically wrong. The Disney Store recently got in contact with me to let me know about their Disney Party section on the website and they asked if I’d like to …

It’s Strawberry Picking Season Again

The first time I went strawberry picking was last year and once we’d been, we were there nearly every week during strawberry season. We went to Open Farm Sunday and I’ve sort of got a bug for the whole country living, farming thing. It probably doesn’t help that I’ve been binge watching Heartland which is all about the country way …

Beginning Our Potty Training With HUGGIES Pull-Ups

You’d think I would be a professional when it comes to potty training seeing as I’ve done it twice already. The reality of it is, I think I was pretty lucky with my previous two. P1 was over three years old and more understanding of what we were asking her, and P2 just refused to wear nappies and wanted big …

I’ve Never Been An Adult Without Children

My husband and I are really lucky to be able to enjoy one weekend a month where we can be child free for a night. For a little while before my Mum’s health deteriorated we even had two nights of freedom. When my Mum and Step-Dad had their kidney transplant operations the weekend’s stopped because they were recovering. They also …

A Morning Stroll Around Haysden Country Park

Following a day of feeling numb and confused after England experiencing another terrorist attack, I felt like I needed to just get out. Which is slightly strange as I am worrying so much about crowded public spaces now. This week the weather is glorious. I’ve dusted off my summer shorts and crop tops even if it may only last a …

Welcoming Two New Boys To Our Family

On Monday the 10th of April my Mum’s Guinea-Pig gave birth to three little babies. My Mum is clearly losing her veterinary nurse experience as she was sure there would be just one baby. My girls had actually been staying with their grandparents that weekend and were excited that Hermione (mummy guinea) was literally ready to pop. But alas, she …
