Bonfire Night 2016 With 3M

Forgetting the fact I am somebody who doesn’t really embrace the colder weather gracefully, I do love Bonfire Night and Halloween. There’s something quite festive and exciting about it if I’m honest. This year was no different, my excitement was still well and truly there, only this year the girls were spending Bonfire Night back in Essex with my Mum. …

Jump In Trampoline Arena Tonbridge Review

This past year Hubby and I have been making such a huge effort to go on little adventures where we find brand new things for the girls to do. We are sort of testing out all the local attractions to find our favourite destinations for days out or rainy day activities. I was recently made aware of a new trampoline …

Taking A Break With An Autumn Walk & A Vlog

We recently had three consecutive holidays. We had two mini breaks and the epic holiday to Orlando. They all came at once and we were so super lucky but I was bound to feel the holiday blues when we returned to England. Those blues have really hit. The two weeks before our holidays were the most stressful that I’ve felt …

A Simple Halloween

Last year P1 went with my MiL for a Halloween party and missed trick or treating. She was devastated and this year she kept asking if she could come with us. With nothing else planned for Halloween day and evening, we agreed to go trick or treating. Hubby bought a super cute small pumpkin to carve. He spent ages marking …

Memory Skills: Why It’s Better To Use A Notepad Than A Computer

When was the last time you wrote anything by hand? Perhaps you’re one of those people who leaves scribbled ‘to-do’ lists on sticky notes at work. If so, you might be in the minority – many of us are using technology more and more frequently instead. Apps like ‘Wunderlist’ are perfect for jotting down the groceries we need to pick …

Back To School With Start-Rite Pussycat Bow School Shoes Review

Every single morning we have a battle with P1 about putting her school shoes on. I believe it’s partly the autism side of her that is to blame and we do manage to get her to wear her shoes eventually. Start-rite Shoes gave us the chance to review a pair of their school shoes which had changeable charms. I was really …

Bratz Insta-Pets Doll Review

I recently got the pleasure of being insulted by an older man for the job that I have. Apparently social media and the internet is ruining the world. But quite frankly I believe it’s enhancing the world and that’s why I do what I do. Kind of. But also, I don’t really think you can hide away from social media …

Halloween Chocolate Cupcakes Recipes

I have gone a little Baking crazy recently and I think P2 has cottoned on to this too. She asks me frequently if we can bake, it’s usually at the most inconvenient time but she’s getting really good at baking. I spotted some cute little Halloween cupcake decorations in Poundland the other day and instantly knew that P2 would love …

Our Last Update With DryNites

We have come to an end of our DryNites journey. For the past few months we have had the help of the DryNites team and they have given us so many useful tools to help conquer P2s bed wetting phase. I got to go on a sleep retreat. I learned new techniques. We’ve had the opportunity to put DryNites Pyjama …

We’re Off On A Dream Holiday To Orlando

I get sent blogging opportunities near enough daily. Some are just not of interest, some are fun and some are so dreamy you feel a little giddy about them. A few weeks ago, I was amongst hundreds who applied to go on a blog trip to Orlando and I felt there really was no chance in hell that my little …

The Cheeky Elf Review

When I was a child Christmas meant a time for Father Christmas to bring presents. On Christmas Eve we would set out the plate for him; a mince pie, some milk and a carrot for Rudolph. We’d then pretend to be asleep for as long as possible before our eyes forced it upon us. I remember waking up before it …

Siblings 2016 – October

We are well and truly in Autumn now. For some reason I feel that family life is a lot harder during the colder months. It’s so much more planning and prepping just to step outside your house. Do we need wellies? Do we need coats? What kind of coat, a big thick one or a nice thin rain mac? It’s …

Birthday Shopping With My Grandad & Mum

For Christmas last year my Grandad promised me a shopping trip. It was his way of giving me a present. I ended up going child free and meeting my Grandad and Auntie at the shopping centre. We did lots of shopping and then had lunch on my Grandad’s wallet which obviously is always fantastic. I never know what to ask …

Golden Bear Sleep Tight All Night Iggle Piggle Review

It’s no secret that we have one child that really struggles with sleep. P2 will be four years old in February and I think I can probably count the amount of times she’s ever slept through on my fingers and toes. It has come to light that it’s actually just us that she doesn’t sleep for, she’s fine with my …
