My Sunday Photo – 06/09/2015

We haven’t got P1 and P2 this weekend. It’s their usual monthly sleepover with their Grandparents in Essex. I always plan to get on top of blogging related things as having one should be much easier than three but it never works this way. Ever. In fact P3 becomes a voice that makes up for the missing two. She becomes …

Our New Cleaning Routine & Win Some Dettol Products

This month has seen some big changes in our house. I have actually managed to keep on top of the housework. It also coincided with the school holidays so it hasn’t been an easy task to keep on top of things and it did fall to pieces one week (the week P1 was away with her Grandparents) but we swiftly …

Letter To My Nan – 2 Years

Hi Nan, I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I last wrote to you. Today marks two years since you left us. So much has happened this past year. We welcomed a new baby girl, your third Granddaughter, and she came into the world so dramatically. It was very strange for only Grandad to pop his head around …

“My Grandad’s home will always be my happy place of memories”

On Friday hubby asked if I wanted to see my Grandad. It was probably prompted from my emotional state whilst writing my Nan’s 2 year death-anniversary letter. It was late but I text my grandad to ask if he fancied having some visitors. So on Saturday we headed back to my home town to meet my Grandad for breakfast as …

My Sunday Photo – 30/08/2015

We headed back to Essex yesterday and I will blog about that soon because I have so many photos to share from that day. This week my sunday photo is of P1. P1 is so hard to photograph lately, she’s actually really into photography and points out “great photo” opportunities and she loves to pose but she has trouble actually …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 11 Months

To my Princess 3, Today you turned 11 months. These past 11 months have zoomed past and it feels like such a long time ago that you were a tiny screeching baby that we could never figure out. I don’t think you look like other nearly 1 year olds. I still think you are very baby-like in appearance which is …

A Princess Day With Disney Cinderella

We have four days at home before P1 is dressed back in her uniform and shipped off to school. I’m not going to lie when I say that I am really looking forward to the start of school. Although the school holidays seem to have zoomed by, this last week is dragging. With well under a week left I really …

My First Pizza from Little Dish A Review

We eat pizza a lot in this family. Pizza (and pasta and cheese) are always available and are my “go to” food for a quick meal when time is rushed or the kids are screaming the house down where I’ve forgotten the time and it’s nearly bed time but their tummy’s are hungry. We very rarely order a takeaway pizza …

How To Create Your Autumn Wardrobe On A Shoestring

Sorting your wardrobe ready for when the leaves fall doesn’t always have to be an expensive task. You just need to take note of the trends and then tailor what you need to fulfil them to your lifestyle – easy, right? First, split your clothing into ‘needs’, i.e. workwear, nightlife, everyday outfits and work out which one is more dominant …

#innocentFiveADay Fruit & Veg Fest and A Competition

I was up, showered and basically dressed before my three daughters and hubby had even opened their little eyeballs Tuesday. I always hate it when this situation occurs. It’s like I’m breaking the law of sleep and should be severely punished but it was all for a good cause. Innocent Drinks had invited the girls and me up to Fruit …

The True Cost Of Upsizing And Is It Worth It?

The aim for most, after getting on the property ladder, is to upsize our homes with each move. This could be for a growing family or a growing teddy bear collection, like the Smith’s, who after retirement chose to move from three to four bedrooms to accommodate their 600 cuddly toys.   But, did they really need to move to …

Mindful Eating Challenge

Last week we embarked on a mindful eating challenge. We were given the challenge by Legal and General who organised a five day recipe box to help us on our journey. Every single day of our lives we cook things that are convenient without giving it a second thought. So many times I’ve wanted to change the way we eat …

American Inspired Staycation – #SantanderStaycation

Funny enough, P1 has just returned from a holiday, a full 9 days with her Grandparents. She stayed in the UK this time in a beautiful place in Gloucester. I am so jealous of her little trip away because we have put off a big, long family holiday for nearly three years. The main reason of course is the price. …
