You Never Think It Will Be Your Child

Bullying is something that happens in every school. It’s a part of learning boundaries, personality clashes and bad behaviour. As a parent you hope that your child will never be bullied, that they are kind to everyone and that you never have to be called in to the Head Teacher because of an incident involving your child and someone else’s. …

#MySundayPhoto – Daddy’s Girl

“Mummy you are always angry!” “Daddy you are lovely!” That pretty much sums up my entire week in a nutshell and it’s devastating. I think it’s natural that one parent is more strict than the other, and clearly that is me right now. Or that’s what the girls are perceiving it as. P3 has always been my little shadow but …

Spending Time With My Girls

It’s been a weird day. One I want to cherish forever but also one that could quite happily be brushed under the doormat. My eyes opened to the usual cries for “Mummy” from one possibly two of the girls. It’s Sunday so I ushered both P2 and P3 into my bed, shoving Hubby further towards the wall so we could …

Letter To My Nan – 4 Years

On this day four years ago my biggest baby, P1, started her primary school education back in Essex. That day holds so many precious memories. I’d dropped P1 off at school on time, not knowing anybody as we had been through an appeals process and subsequently missed any taster sessions they had. I needed to return back to the school …

Drama & Destruction Wherever We Go

Last weekend we headed back to Essex but this time it wasn’t to meet up with family, we were there to see my best friend. This friend of mine is the type of friend that you can go months without seeing but when you do, it’s as if you were never apart. It had actually been about 18 months since …

Life Is Changing

The last two weeks have felt like they whizzed by in a blur of emotions that I didn’t anticipate. The week in the lead up to P2 finishing her preschool years felt bittersweet. We had sports day and even that made me well up with emotions. One of the Mum’s arranged a little get together for the girls leaving and …

Open Farm Sunday 2017

I was made aware of Open Farm Sunday last year by the good world of social media. We had a brilliant time wandering around with a rather cute little P3. As soon as the date for the next year was released I popped it in my diary. I have been so excited about Open Farm Sunday. For those of you who …

Father’s Day 2017 Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is probably the only celebration of the year that I really struggle with. I mostly end up forgetting about it and having to print off a printable card from a random website. But this year, with the thanks to Hallmark and Tesco, they’ve reminded me all about Father’s Day and even helped me get prepared. Tesco have a …

Welcoming Two New Boys To Our Family

On Monday the 10th of April my Mum’s Guinea-Pig gave birth to three little babies. My Mum is clearly losing her veterinary nurse experience as she was sure there would be just one baby. My girls had actually been staying with their grandparents that weekend and were excited that Hermione (mummy guinea) was literally ready to pop. But alas, she …

Young Mum? You Are Not Alone! #CMYANA

Channel Mum recently shared that 9 out of 10 Mums feel lonely and it started their You Are Not Alone (or YANA or use the hashtag #CMYANA) campaign. It has really hit the media and it has also got me thinking about my own experiences of being a mum and feeling lonely. I think I most felt the loneliness eight …

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 …
