Our Royal Wedding Celebrations!

Six years ago next month, I experienced my first ever street party with my soon to be mother-in-law. It was in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. I was secretly pregnant with P2 and feeling quite worse for wear if I remember but I was able to feel this huge community spirit. The views, the location and just everything about …

Carisbrooke Castle & JR Zone – IOW 2018

It was a rather windy and wet night at The Orchards Holiday Park. It definitely made getting ready for the day much harder than it would have if it was warm and bright. Breakfast was fed to the girls as usual – usual being three different breakfast options and then we headed out of the holiday park for another day …

Easter Hunt At Monkey Haven – IOW 2018

Following on from a busy day at Tapnell Farm, I expected to have a nice peaceful nights sleep but it sadly wasn’t. Both P2 and P3 were very unsettled from about 3am onwards. The Easter Bunny didn’t have a chance to bring his treats to the girls so I cracked on with the breakfast. When the girls went back to …

How Does Money Impact Our Relationship?

Does money buy happiness? Can it impact our relationships? I honestly think it does, for both those questions. I was really interested to read the results of a survey done by Shepherds Friendly about How Does Money Impact Our Relationships. My husband and I have always had quite an open situation when it comes to the money in our lives …

Is It Lucky To Have Child Free Time?

I hear it so often when I tell people I’m child free and that we get to have this once a month for an entire weekend. “You’re so lucky!” But is it luck really? And is that luck mine or the kids? If you are new to my blog, I am a mum of three girls. I had my first …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Finally On The Waiting List

This week has been a really good one for us as a family. P2 turned 5 years old this week and we had a family trip out, it’s snowed and been frosty a few mornings too but the best news we’ve had this week is to do with P1. Right at the beginning of the week P1 had another routine …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Daffodil Season

I walk to school or nursery every single day at least once, usually three times, and it’s a great way for me to start taking in my local area and noticing habits. Suddenly over the past week I have started to see shoots of little flowers emerging from their beds. For me, it’s a sign that Spring and warmer, longer …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Extreme Tiredness

I’ve already failed miserably at this so won’t promise I’ll be joining in every Sunday, but I’ll do my best! This Sunday’s photo is from Wednesday. The previous evening P2 was exhausted. I put it down to the adjustment of back to school. She actually asked to go to bed early and I had P2 and P3 both asleep by …

10 Things I’ve Learnt About My Kittens

We welcomed two little kittens to our family just a few weeks ago and I’ve been enjoying spamming my Instagram with kitten photos ever since. Our boys, Billy and Jake, are now fifteen weeks old and have caused absolute chaos as they’ve settled into family life at Christmas time. I wanted to put together a little list of some of …

#BLOGMAS Day 5 – Our First Garden

It has been no secret of mine that I have wanted a garden for my girls to enjoy for such a long time. It feels like forever to be honest. So when we moved it was high up on my list. I never expected to be able to get such a big one though. It was run down as you …

“Mummy! Milky”

I hear the words “Mummy! Milky” day in and day out. It’s a 24/7 occurrence and it comes out of two of my three darling daughters mouths. I honestly feel like I’m going crazily insane about it. It’s controlling nearly every breath I take and I am so tired. I’ll start with P2 seeing as that issue has been the …

#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 …

London With My Middle Girl For The Nut Job 2 Film Preview

Originally Sunday was meant to be a family day, but I woke up with a very poorly P3 in my bed and with P1 who could not walk due to an injury the day before. I felt really sad because we were meant to be heading to London for a film preview of The Nut Job 2. I desperately didn’t …
