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 …

A Snowy Evening In January

Snow had been forecasted for a few days but where I live it was only meant to be a few hours of it so I tried not to excite myself. I especially kept the weather predictions away from the girls. I spent most of yesterday peeping out of the window every hour. Checking for those tiny magical flakes of snow …

New Year Celebrations

Hubby and I spent the end of 2016 without our girls. It wasn’t an easy decision to make, especially on Hubby’s side. He definitely felt sentimental about the situation but I reminded him that they would all be fast asleep anyway and they’re all too young to understand what a new year means. The fact that Christmas had pretty much …

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 …

#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 …

A Christmas Break With Bluestone Wales

Ever since we first went to Bluestone Wales the girls have asked to return. The other week we were invited back which I was so excited about. The most exciting part was that we were getting invited to the Kingdom Of The Elves and getting our very last break of 2016. I’ve decided to break this post up into sections by …

Father Christmas Delivered Our Deliveroo

The lead up to Christmas this year has been so incredibly magical already. The girls have been spoilt with different days out, adventures and visits to see Father Christmas. But I don’t think they were quite prepared for when Father Christmas came walking down the road with our Deliveroo order, a sleigh and two reindeers. The girls had seen the …
