Getting Through The Sickness Bug

I suffer quite badly with migraines and I spend nearly every day worrying about when my next one will come on. They happen with no warning and I haven’t quite found out what the triggers are yet. Parenting with a migraine is absolutely awful. All you want to do is hide away and sleep it off but you just can’t …

Siblings 2016 – November

This past month has been an absolute crazy one for us as a family. We’ve spent it partly in USA and when in the UK we’ve been in three different counties. There has been so many opportunities for making memories for us as a family but also for my girls as sisters. I have really enjoyed watching them this month …

Bonfire Night 2016 With 3M

Forgetting the fact I am somebody who doesn’t really embrace the colder weather gracefully, I do love Bonfire Night and Halloween. There’s something quite festive and exciting about it if I’m honest. This year was no different, my excitement was still well and truly there, only this year the girls were spending Bonfire Night back in Essex with my Mum. …

Halloween At BeWILDerwood Norfolk

Before our amazing Universal Orlando trip was arranged, we had plans to head to Norfolk to see Hubby’s Grandparents. I actually hadn’t been up to their house in Norfolk before which meant the girls hadn’t either so this was a trip I was really excited about. As there is a lot of us we decided to book into a local …

Jump In Trampoline Arena Tonbridge Review

This past year Hubby and I have been making such a huge effort to go on little adventures where we find brand new things for the girls to do. We are sort of testing out all the local attractions to find our favourite destinations for days out or rainy day activities. I was recently made aware of a new trampoline …

Taking A Break With An Autumn Walk & A Vlog

We recently had three consecutive holidays. We had two mini breaks and the epic holiday to Orlando. They all came at once and we were so super lucky but I was bound to feel the holiday blues when we returned to England. Those blues have really hit. The two weeks before our holidays were the most stressful that I’ve felt …

Part 2 – Universal Orlando Resort – VIP Tour Experience

All three of the girls slept straight through their first night in Orlando. Despite being super comfortable in the air conditioned Garden Room of the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, I didn’t sleep too well. I think I was overtired and had adrenaline pumping through me as I anticipated the day ahead. I’d set my alarm for early. I had expected …

A Simple Halloween

Last year P1 went with my MiL for a Halloween party and missed trick or treating. She was devastated and this year she kept asking if she could come with us. With nothing else planned for Halloween day and evening, we agreed to go trick or treating. Hubby bought a super cute small pumpkin to carve. He spent ages marking …

Memory Skills: Why It’s Better To Use A Notepad Than A Computer

When was the last time you wrote anything by hand? Perhaps you’re one of those people who leaves scribbled ‘to-do’ lists on sticky notes at work. If so, you might be in the minority – many of us are using technology more and more frequently instead. Apps like ‘Wunderlist’ are perfect for jotting down the groceries we need to pick …

Halloween Half Term – A Microbreak With Marriott Hotels In The UK

We have had a pretty insane October Half Term. We kick started our adventures with a chance to discover our #WeekendSelf with Marriott Hotels. We were invited to have a microbreak. I can imagine a microbreak without children being pretty chilled out, but for us at the moment we needed a place to explore that was both fun for adults …

Bratz Insta-Pets Doll Review

I recently got the pleasure of being insulted by an older man for the job that I have. Apparently social media and the internet is ruining the world. But quite frankly I believe it’s enhancing the world and that’s why I do what I do. Kind of. But also, I don’t really think you can hide away from social media …
