Valentines Jam Heart Biscuits

I used to hate Valentine’s Day. I felt it was very commercialised and a date in the diary specifically for people to make money from. Surely if you love someone you should be showing them that each day, not just one day out of 365. But then I joined the blogging world and this year I’m making an effort to …

“I may have a daughter with autism”

Imagine giving your child a few packets of sweets, a can of cola and just to top it off nicely a bowl of ice cream topped with sprinkles. You watch their eyes widen, their body begin to go at extra fast, their voices louder and they become uncontrollable. That’s what it’s like to live with P1 right now. As soon …

Siblings 2016 – January

For me the Siblings Project starts another year, our second year and once again I’m a little bit late in getting photos and posting.

But now I rarely get quality time with …

“I don’t think I’ve felt true boredom for a long time”

Since the new year I have felt quite refreshed. My emails have been quiet, I’ve been writing and scheduling posts for days in advance, the house is relatively tidy with clothes washing up to date and put away. But the evening telly has been pretty rubbish and limited which has left me feeling rather bored. I don’t think I’ve felt …

“P1 is behaved at school and a crazy nightmare at home”

I’ve always loved the idea of home schooling. Having no early mornings for school runs and being able to spend time as a family doing the things we loved whilst educating and growing my daughters. But then we have school holidays, and they remind me exactly why I don’t and would never go down that route. There’s something wrong with …

I’m feeling positively festive this last remaining week before Christmas. There’s already been loads of family things going on since the school holidays started Friday.

Our Afternoon At Peppa Pig’s Surprise Live Tour

I have had nearly 7 years of Peppa Pig in my life. It was P1 who first became obsessed and watched every episode over and over to the point where I probably knew the words to every season! I treated her to theatre trips too which were thoroughly enjoyable for me as well as her with the cute hand puppet …

The Fantasy Box Review – Sex After Baby

When a slightly unusual email found its way into my inbox, I had a little giggle inside then thought it would be a fun thing to accept. The Fantasy Box arrived through my door, in discreet outer packaging, not long after. I felt slightly nervous about the post, the reaction and the actual reviewing of the box with its contents …

“I had made the definite decision not to cosleep with P3”

Cosleeping with P2 was not a conscious decision that we’d made. It just happened and we managed to get more sleep despite having a leg in our ribs or our eyes getting poked out. We coslept for around a year on and off. Although it worked for us, I had made the definite decision not to cosleep with P3 under …

My Christmas Wish List 2015

I have been putting off my Christmas list this year because I have already told anyone who has asked the things I’d really like, a duvet set and clothes mainly, so there didn’t seem a need to write a post. But I’ve been reading other wish lists and gift guides and have seen a few things that I’d love to …
