“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 …

To my Princess 2, There is just one more month left of being two. Three years ago you were tucked up inside my tummy, kicking away, not a care in the world. I however had the itchiest of skins and was so desperate to have you out. This is just a short little letter as I want to write again …

“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 …

Fluffy American Pancakes Recipe

I am guilty of opening up a batter mix sachet that costs just 30p and making up a batch of pancakes or yorkshire puddings. Pancakes are P1s absolute favourite breakfast and seeing as I am actually really enjoying baking and cooking recently, I decided to give some American pancakes a go today. Here’s the recipe for these yummy star shaped …

My Goals For 2016

The past year seems to have flown by. I think I probably say that every year but it does feel like this time last year I had a newborn baby then I blinked and I’m about to enter 2016 with two toddlers and a child. Last year I set myself 5 goals; to lose weight, see friends more, do more …

TUMTUM Bluebell Out & About Lunch Set Review & Competition

I am awful at forgetting to pack the girls snacks or food she we head out or for a short trip to the park. Then each and every time they moan that they’re hungry despite just having lunch. I never learn. I also think a contributing factor is that I’ve not had anywhere to store anything so when TUMTUM offered …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 15 Months

To my Princess 3, I really do think growing up suits you and it’s so scary to think you are already 15 months old! So far you are taking everything in your stride since learning to walk. You are so much fun now and unless you’re ill, you are such a joy to be around. You’re personality is absolutely hilarious. You …

Share Your Year – Our 2015

2015 is very nearly at an end and it’s time to reflect on the year that has gone past. I honestly don’t think that 2015 was an overly bad year for us so I’m going to reflect in 3 month sections. I’m linking up with Lauren at Belle Du Brighton who gave me this idea. January, February, March I kick …

“It was lovely to have all three running about together”

Around Easter time each year since moving to Sevenoaks, we have been gifted a membership to the local Nature Trail by my MiL. I think originally it was my MiLs way of getting us to go out more because I was a little reluctant during the first 6 months of living here and was happy to spend day in day …

Everything You Need To Know About Preventing Allergies In Your Home

The best way to prevent an allergic reaction is to avoid the allergen that causes it. However, sometimes this is easier said than done, as many of these allergens are within our homes. Dust mites, for example, are one of the biggest causes of allergies and they can breed in even the cleanest of homes but these microscopic insects are …

Christmas 2015

The build up and anticipation for Christmas this year was immense for me. For some reason it all felt so much more magical this year than any other year. I partly blame blogging for that as I am aware of other people’s traditions, decorations and stories that surround Christmas. Since last Christmas we’ve been saving our Nectar and Tesco purely …

Needing New Boots For Adventures

My boots are probably over 4 years old now. They are battered, they are peeling, they are scratched, the heels are wearing down and I’m pretty sure that there are holes in them underneath as my feet get wet. These boots are always the shoes I wear when we go out anywhere for adventures or long days out. They have …

Thinking About Our Christmas Day Breakfast With Brioche Pasquier

There’s only a few days left to get any Christmas shopping finished and wrapped. But have you thought about Christmas food you’ll need too? We are lucky enough to not need any main food for Christmas Day as we are spending it round family. However, I do need to think about a festive breakfast for my little family. Usually Christmas …

“I don’t think we’ve ever had all three poorly at once”

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. Saturday was a boring day spent at home but Sunday was the annual big family get together on hubby’s side. With all the issues I’ve had with my own family, this event that my MiL …
