5 Clever Ways To Supplement Your Income

I recently came across a fascinating article which underlined just how members of our generation have been squeezed, and how a combination of factors such as debt, unemployment and rising house prices have contributed to a steady decline in income over the last three decades. It rather confirms what we already knew – these aren’t easy times to carve out …

Weather Craft Fun #BostikBloggers

This months theme is definitely appropriate. The weather is finally feeling warmer and brighter which generally makes things feel happier for me. Of course we are in England and the weather is never really certain. We were sent another box of fun craft supplies from Bostik and this month I came up with an idea. I originally wanted a weather …

Siblings 2016 – May

Being one piece to a three part gang must be quite tricky at times. Fighting for attention from your parents, from other people, from each other. I say this every month but my girls really do love each other’s company. In fact they do flourish best together and of course they can be fierce as a three too! The hotter …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #20/52

My days are consumed lately by my eldest daughter. I’ve been filling out forms for her referral for autism and generally her behaviour has been atrocious lately. It’s like she’s a stroppy teenager times one hundred already and it’s tiring. She wakes up moody and spends the day looking glum or angry, then goes to bed in a hyper state …

Our New Bedtime Routine

I had drafted up the title of this post with intentions to write about our new bedtime routine. It was back a few weeks ago when I felt we’d finally hit a stage where I was winning the parenting role. We’d had nearly a month of an established routine that worked for us. Then something pooped on my parade before …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #19/52

Each month we have one night and two nearly full days when there’s just P3 to look after as the other two go to my parents in Essex. Occasionally we arrange for P3 to spend a few hours with her Nannie but more often than not we have two days to focus on P3. Things always feel so incredibly strange on …

A #MomsDayOffContest With Crocs

I spend every second of my day doing something child related. I also nearly always have our youngest attached to my leg, hip or holding my hand because she’s a definite Mummy’s girl at the moment. To find time for myself I used to go to a fitness class but motivation for that has disappeared and so it’s become a …

Our Cornwall Holiday – Waterloo Farm Holidays

We recently embarked on our longest car journey with the children as we headed across to Cornwall for a family mini break. The girls really enjoyed their farm holiday back in October last year so I picked something similar this time and so we headed to Waterloo Farm Holidays. The journey really did feel like the longest time. The girls …

Carlyon Bay Beach Visit

It’s been a long time since I went to the beach. It used to be quite easy to get to our local one back in Essex and there was plenty to do like arcades and even a little theme park. It was a relatively nice place to visit but I never actually did very often. I’ve seen so many beautiful …

Do Our Parents Influence Our Career Choices?

Perhaps it’s not something you’ve thought about before, but did you know that your career choices have probably been – at least in some way – influenced by your parents? Whether you’ve had happy-go-lucky parents who wanted nothing more than for you to feel satisfied, or go-getter parents who measured your success by your income and job title, there are …

A Visit To Marsh Farm Animal Adventure Park

It has already been two weeks since we had a two night sleepover with my Grandad. Time is just flying past and I’ve actually had all the photos ready in the post since the day after we visited Marsh Farm. Marsh Farm holds so many memories for me. School trips and visits with my Grandparents, my Mum and my friends. …

Siblings 2016 – April

This month has seen the girls settle down much better with each other. Of course they still have their horrible bitch fights where they literally attack each other (P1 and P2) with poor P3 copying more and more. I think this is going to be our futures as girls can be pretty mean to each other when they fall out. …

Parragon Book Buddies – March 2016

I am well aware we are practically half way through April now, but back in March we were sent our latest Parragon Book Buddies parcel and inside was some absolutely beautiful Disney Princesses colouring books. I have always been into art especially things like drawing and colouring so being sent the Frozen and Disney Princesses Art Therapy Colouring Book has …
