Mr Kipling #BetterWithCake – The First Week of Easter Holidays

We were given the really tough task of eating cakes. I know, terrible! Not just any cakes though, none other than Mr Kipling’s exceeding good ones. I arrived home one day last week to a delicious selection of Mr Kipling cakes; Cherry Bakewells (my favourite), Viennese Whirls (a close second favourite) and French Fancies. The first week of the Easter …

P2 thinks her dummies are with the Easter Bunny.

I don’t remember the events surrounding when P1 stopped using a dummy and ultimately that’s the main reason that I have this blog and wish I’d known about blogging a long time ago. P2 has used a dummy from a baby. It’s been her comfort, my noise stopper and it’s been something she’s depended on in so many situations. When …

My Baby No Longer Loves Me

Under all the activities and excitement we’ve had the past few days, P3 has had a week where she’s been quite under the weather. The poor little mite has dealt with a lot in her little life already and when this cold hit her, it really hit hard. All week I’ve been wiping snot from her nose, changing some nasty …

Letter to my Princess 2 – 2 Years 2 Months

To my Princess 2, It feels like such a long time ago that it was your birthday. You have been two for two months now! We’ve just had the most amazing Easter together and you’ve eaten far too many chocolate eggs and the little face you pull when you know you shouldn’t have unwrapped the lump of chocolate in your …

Celebrating His 25th Birthday & Easter with Balloon Time

A few months ago we were asked to be part of the Celebration Club for Balloon Time. The time scaled fitted perfectly with my hubby’s 25th birthday so naturally I thought this was a great excuse to throw a party for him. Hubby does so much for us as a family and I really wanted to show him just how …

My Sunday Photo – Easter Sunday 05/04/2015

I had a few pictures I wanted to put as my Sunday Photo for Easter that reflected our past week. There was one of P3 crying, as mean as that sounds, it really reflected the week we’ve had with her being poorly. Then there was the picture from Saturday, when we went to see Mr Tumble and P2 has her …

Justin & Friends – Mr Tumble’s Circus at Wembley Arena London

Yesterday, we gave P3 to my MiL and bundled the other two in the car for the hour and a half drive to Wembley. We were off to see CBeebies Live present Mr Tumble’s Circus. We’d discussed the show for a whole week and had really hyped it up, even in the car I was keeping them all excited so …

Fun Spring Cleaning Facts With Spaceways

P3 is really not herself. I’m unsure what the cause is and think it’s a mixture of many things. Teething. A cold. The six month separation anxiety stage of her development. For the past week she has not wanted me to leave her side, its not even leaving her sight because that would be fine. I have to physically be …

GateKeeper (GK-Chain) Review

My hubby turned 25 yesterday. I always struggle to buy for him and always end up feeling super guilty when I just can’t think of anything. He knows me so well and always gets really thoughtful gifts! I do know that he is heavily interested in his computer, so much so it takes up the whole counter in our kitchen, …

Why I Admire My Eldest Daughter

I’m taking part in the April Ultimate Blogging Challenge and today’s prompt was to write about who I admire and why. I had planned to write about my Grandad because my admiration for him is fantastic. But I’ve decided to write about my eldest daughter. I’m still debating whether or not that’s a bit strange. P1 is just over 6 …

“I’ve been my daughters comfort when she’s feeling her worst”

I told myself last night that I had certain jobs to do today. Our easter holiday break begins this Thursday and quite frankly our house is a pig sty! Everyone, except me typically, have come down with colds and I’ve slowly watched the mess creep on top of me. I’ve put caring for the kids and hubby above the cleaning, …

My Sunday Photo – 29/03/2015

I’ve seen so many bloggers joining in with a Sunday photo linky so here’s mine: I chose this picture as with P1 a school the majority of the week it feels like we hardly ever get to spend any real time with her. Yesterday, at our local duck pond that we always go to, they were holding a model boat …

Co-Sleeping With My Third Baby

As a parent, we want what is best for our children. Of course we do. How we parent is largely influenced by our own upbringings and more nowadays by the internet. We have the input of every medically-trained professional under the sun telling us what is right and what is wrong. Ultimately, as a parent we know our children more …

Letter to my Princess 3 – 6 Months

To my Princess 3, I can’t believe you are already six months and we’ve made it through half of a year of sleepless nights and poopy nappies. At six months you have rolled once, laughed twice and are sitting slightly unaided for 30 seconds. You smile at everyone. Having said that, you have definitely started to feel some separation anxiety …
