My Sunday Photo – 31/05/2015

I missed last weeks my Sunday photo as we were having far too much fun at a family wedding. Last Sunday was also my Grandad’s 84th birthday. Seeing as this Sunday will be spent doing a food shop and hopefully out to the park if the weather permits, I thought I would share a photo from last week that makes …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 8 Months

To my Princess 3, You have been in the world and in our lives for 8 months now. In the scheme of things that’s such a short amount of time but it doesn’t feel that way. It feels like you’ve always been a part of our lives. Admittedly, we haven’t had you weighed in quite a long time by a …

Why Spending Time With Your Children Is So Important For Their Development

Being a parent is a rite of passage that brings innumerable changes to the way in which we think and act, and is an experience that no parent would, in their right mind, relinquish. From babe-in-arms to leaving the nest, parenthood is a hugely important and gratifying thing, but in today’s world of technological progress and advancing digitisation, many families …

Managing Bedwetting With DryNites

I didn’t expect potty training to go as smoothly as it currently has or as young as P2 is. At just over two years old she is dry during the day, in knickers and has even squatted in the cold outdoors a few times on car journeys. I am so incredibly proud of her. At night time though she is …

A Wedding & Longleat Safari

I went a little bit off duty Sunday and Monday. With extreme lack of signal over in Wiltshire and it being a bank holiday there was absolutely no need to keep checking my emails and the only reason I did touch my phone was to check the time or take a photo. That was also where my off duties were …

Celebrating My Super Duper Big Sisters with Ella’s Kitchen

Being a sibling holds so many possibilities and responsibilities especially when you’re the big sister. You’re the one who will help your younger sibling to share, to play, to talk and develop. You naturally become a role model whether you like it or not. I was always close to my brother when he arrived. I remember being so excited, at …

“It has been two years since I last had my hair cut”

It has been two years since I last had my hair cut. Where we bleach it at home my hair is completely out of condition. I have split ends a plenty and I’m just so unhappy. It’s long, I like the length funny enough, but it’s nowhere near kept and tidy. My hair actually makes me feel quite self conscious and …

“Playgroup was absolutely heaving with new people today”

It’s been an odd day that seemed to start really early even though it actually didn’t. Hubby was up two hours before he usually is, the time I normally get up with P3, to pick his Auntie up from the airport with my MiL. I was left to watch four kiddies, get them dressed and give breakfast. Everybody was safely …

Teething Troubles

I find it a struggle to remember the baby days for both P1 and P2. Despite the fact I’m sort of reliving everything now with P3 I still cannot bring back the memories very easily. There’s something in particular that I’ve tried to remember because it feels so different this time round. Teething. I’m guessing that because it wasn’t such …

The Gro Company Bunny & Brolly GroBag Review

We are not strangers to The Gro Company. In fact both my girls have used them at some point for something. P1 & P2 both have the GroAnywhere Blind attached to their window to stop the bright evenings from disrupting bedtime too much. With P2 & P3 born in different seasons that means that at 7 months with P2 she …

My Sunday Photo – 17/05/2015

When we chose to move out of our home county to a brand new one 18 months ago, our decision was swayed by the amazing community that we found over in Kent. There always seemed to be something going on, from craft fairs to christmas bazaars and horse charity shows. The people were genuinely friendly and would smile at you …

Journey To Fit with the Fitbit Flex

My fitness goal has really changed since I started my Healthy Habit with Juice Plus. When I first began I weighed 46.2kg and initially my journey was solely to lose some weight. Technically, my BMI was in the healthy range for my height so I didn’t really know how much I wanted to lose. I still don’t. In just over …
