A Family Trip To Cadbury World 2017

It’s been quite a few years since my first ever visit to Cadbury World. I remember having an amazing time and had only been back once again when P1 was very young. Over the past five years I have tried to convince Hubby to let us go there as a family and finally we went. We arrived about half an …

Taking My Four Year Old To Clubs

When P2 was around two years old I began to have worries about her confidence. She was extremely attached to Hubby and me when we ventured out and would rarely leave our sides. She took about three months to stop crying every morning nursery drop off. But then something changed her. It was like a switch was flipped and P2 …

Her Fourth Birthday & Going Horse Riding

I definitely think that this year has been the first year that P2 has fully understood and felt the excitement of her own birthday. For weeks and months actually, she’s been excitedly telling me that she was going to go horse riding and that she’d be able to change her number from three to four. She had started added things …

Siblings 2017 – February

I’ve felt like the month has flown by and it’s absurd that we are already in February. February is a big month for us. P2 turned four years old, my stepdad is giving my mum one of his kidneys and the girls are starting new groups, activities and having play dates again. I’m writing our Siblings post with only a …

Project Mc2 Dolls Review

My girls are gradually steering away from the Peppa Pig episodes and moving onto more grown up programmes. We actually never watch live television and rely solely on our Netflix subscription and YouTube to keep the girls entertained. I’ve started to introduce them to more programmes that are less animated and much more life like. One of the Ines I’m …

Letter To My Princess 2 – 4 Years

To my Princess 2, I have no idea where the last four years have gone and it feels absolutely absurd to think about you starting Primary School in just a few months time. You have this amazingly confident, strong willed personality which I’m struggling to get my head around if I’m honest. I think we clash a bit too much …

Finding The Perfect Lunchbox Snack For My Fussy Eater With Soreen

When I was at school my break time snack consisted of a packet of crisps and a chocolate bar. Fast forward a few years and apparently a pack of crisps and a chocolate bar is not acceptable. P1s school is pretty strict when it comes to the snacks they are allowed. I remember running out of apples and passing a …

How Reading Helps Young Children

Despite the fact I absolutely adore books and reading, I found it really difficult to actually want to read to my first daughter when she was a baby. I never saw the importance of reading to a young child. It’s only really been in the past six months that I have routinely made it part of our bedtime. Now every …

Kidney Disease & My Family

Growing up I was extremely close to my Grandparents. I spent a lot of time with them whilst my Mum and (ex) step dad worked hard for my brother and me. I remember times when we’d walk up to town with my grandparents and my Nan would have to stop and catch her breath frequently. She would also feel the …

Buzy Bees Soft Play Party Review

When it comes to birthdays, we have always celebrated by inviting family to our house and having some party food. But ever since P1 start primary school she has been planning and begging for various parties and up until this year we have always refused. I felt huge mum guilt but also never understood the importance in it all. But …

Siblings 2017 – January

This is the start of our third year taking part in the Siblings Project. I am pretty grateful that Lucy at Dear Beautiful came up with this linky project. It means that I can watch my girls grow in their relationships all in one place each month. This year I wanted to do things a little differently. I took more …

Share Your Year – Our 2016

Last year I wrote a review of our year. I’d completely forgotten about it until I stumbled upon it a few weeks ago. I sat for a while reminiscing and decided that it would be a great idea to do this again and look back on our 2016. I know before I took the time to search, that this year …

Letter To My Princess 1 – 8 Years

To my Princess 1, I can’t begin to comprehend the fact that you are now 8 years old. Each year you grow older, I feel older and it’s further and further away from the moment when I was at school still. There is so much going on in your little world that it’s really hard to keep up. I am …

Gift Guide For Under 1s

Ok, I know I am a little late in posting this but there is still a few days left until Christmas, kind of! I have put together a little gift guide for under one year olds. I have chosen this age because I remember finding this age really difficult to buy for and now I have done it three times …

#MyHolidayParty – Our Fake Christmas Day 2016

For many reasons I haven’t celebrated Christmas back at my Mums house for a while. But thankfully the relationship that was very broken has begun to fix itself after three years of turmoil. I finally felt at the stage where I wanted to spend a Christmas with my Mum, my Grandad and my little (in age not height) brother. So …
