What’s Happening To Our Kids?

Lately I’ve come to notice a few things about the place I live in versus other towns. As a general, because obviously there’s always one, whenever we visit places near or around Sevenoaks, the children are so incredibly polite that it actually takes me by surprise sometimes. Little children asking if they can just pass across the zip wire before …

ASDA Little Angels First Pants Review

I have a thing for nappies. I’d like to think I’ve settled a bit after 7 years of parenting, but that thing is still there. It’s a little OCD like actually and can be quite embarrassing. I tell myself I’m like it because I want to make sure my girls are most comfortable but I’m not entirely true that’s the …

Open Farm Sunday 2016

I’ve started to get a bit stuck for ideas when it comes to the weekends when we just have P3. I feel like we’ve exhausted the park and soft play is always packed at weekends. She’s not quite old enough for big trips to the local castles either. I posted on social media that we were struggling for an idea …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #23/52

We have been super busy this half term that part of me was really excited about this weekend. P1 and P2 are back in Essex and usually having just the one is a nice break for us. This weekend P3 has been a little grumpy, she was good during the food shop yesterday but the being cooped up the rest …

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats Recipe

My friend introduced me to overnight oats a while ago but it has taken me months to find the courage to actually try them for myself. In fact at first I couldn’t imagine them to be very appetising at all but that’s because I am a very visual eater and also very picky with my porridge in particular. Now I …

Learning About Water With Robinsons #EnjoyMoreWater

The first half of our half term was pretty pants. Our car is in the garage again because the garage has messed up big time so we were left confined to our house for a few days. With several planned blog trips to attend we decided to hire a car. Going from the Range Rover to a little Vauxhall Mokka …

ASDA Little Angels Spa Day At The Dorchester Hotel

I have longed for a spa break for my entire adult life. I have never been to a spa nor have I ever experienced a professional massage of any sort. So when a pretty exciting email found its way into my inbox I rushed to respond. A spa experience at the Dorchester Hotel with ASDA Little Angels. How could a girl refuse …

Chocolate & Chia Seeds Overnight Oats Recipe

I don’t own a full length mirror. I’m not tall enough to see into our bathroom one and so I put up with a hand held one for my makeup in a poorly lit hall way. That’s how I dress myself each morning, relying on a quick glimpse in a shop window to double check I actually look half decent …

Coming To Terms With Possible Autism Spectrum Disorder

A couple of weeks ago I took my A4 sheet of paper full of the concerns I have for P1, along with P1 and Hubby to a paediatric appointment. This was our referral appointment following the visit to the GP and it happened much sooner than we expected. It was such an important appointment and I felt so sick with …

It’s that time of the year where bloggers get all excited about the UKs biggest blogging and social media conference, BritMums Live or this year it’s known as #BML16. This year will be my third year attending although this will be the first where I have no baby in my belly or in my arms so I’m hoping that means I’ll …

Embracing The Busy Life

We have had so many opportunities for photos this week but I’ve picked this selection because I really think they sum up the week we’ve just had. This week has been so fun and I don’t think I’ve ever felt so content with life like I do right now. Ok, there’s been the low moments of arguing between my girls …
