A Fun Free Activity This Summer

I have felt so much guilt in the leading up to this school holiday. P1 was offered another place in the holiday school. We always sign her up even though it is not compulsory. It benefits her hugely by receiving extra lessons, extra fun and chances to see her friends and even make new ones that she wouldn’t necessarily talk …

Dodging The Rain & Having A Family Day

I have been feeling so much of that dreaded mum guilt lately. It sparks up the most at the weekends. We fill our weekdays with so many activities, trips to the shops, running arranges and getting the girls to various clubs that I sort of need the weekend as a break. It also becomes our cleaning time too. I always …

A Morning Stroll Around Haysden Country Park

Following a day of feeling numb and confused after England experiencing another terrorist attack, I felt like I needed to just get out. Which is slightly strange as I am worrying so much about crowded public spaces now. This week the weather is glorious. I’ve dusted off my summer shorts and crop tops even if it may only last a …

Going On A Muddy Puddle Walk

Just under two years ago we took our first ever steps into Paultons Park. They have a whole world dedicated to Peppa Pig and back then she was P2s idol. It’s now P3s turn to be obsessed with the pink pig and luckily we were invited back to help Save The Children on their latest campaign. It was so exciting! …

A Trip To Little Street Maidstone

I am always on the hunt for new ways to entertain the kids outside of our own home. When we received an invite to head along to the blogger preview of Little Street in Maidstone, I was pretty excited. I honestly had no idea what it was going to be like except the advertised “kid sized town” which instantly made …

A Country Walk At Lullingstone

I am so incredibly pleased that we have seen the back of winter now. Although saying that it still seems super freezing outside doesn’t it?! A week or so ago, we were graced with some sunshine and it finally felt bright and summery. (The photo above is courtesy of my aspiring four year old photographer – P2!) We decided to …

Win A Family Ticket To Marsh Farm’s Easter Eggstravaganza 2017

I didn’t realise my love for Easter until we went to Marsh Farm last year for their Easter Egg Hunt. I had decided to stay with my Grandad for the weekend without Hubby and wanted to find somewhere to go. Marsh Farm was a childhood place for me to visit and I really wanted my girls to experience the farm …

Go Ape Tree Top Junior Adventure – When Things Don’t Go To Plan

My middle daughter who has just turned four is a little dare devil. We realised this during a trip to Paultons Park last year. She wanted to go on all of the rides and she did, including the rather scary big ones more than once. She was fearless. Then whilst at Universal Orlando Resort P2 begged us to go on …

Special Needs Diary #1 – A Trip To The Park

sad, inspire, cute, autism, summer, dress, pretty, girl, daughter, fun, family, parenting, living with autism,

Dear Diary, I have grown to know that our eldest needs previous planning for whatever she does. Whether that be something very small like her next meal, or something big like a trip out. We are in the very first few days of the summer holidays and I’ve mentally prepared myself for mayhem in the first week or so as …

Embracing The Busy Life

We have had so many opportunities for photos this week but I’ve picked this selection because I really think they sum up the week we’ve just had. This week has been so fun and I don’t think I’ve ever felt so content with life like I do right now. Ok, there’s been the low moments of arguing between my girls …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #15/52

I nearly forgot about My Sunday Photo. This weekend has been very laid back and it’s been so nice. P1 and P2 have been in Essex with my Mum for their monthly sleepover and so we’ve been left with just one little lady to look after. I always find it so much easier and calmer with just the one. Going …

Our Good Friday 2016

I needed a good day and what better day than Good Friday. My day started super early, around 5:45am. We were eager to get out with the new double pushchair and also desperate to get some milk as we barely had enough for the night before. So I made breakfast and shoved some clothes on us all so we could …

Malcolm & Gerald Personalised Children’s Clothing

I can’t remember the last time I physically went into a shop and bought clothes for the girls. Hubby has, in fact he treated P1 to a whole new wardrobe recently. Fashion has never been something I’ve enjoyed for myself and that’s probably why I’ve avoided it when it comes to the girls too. P2 and P3 both live in …

FirstBIKE Racing Red Balance Bike Review

I was so excited about P1 getting her first ever push bike. She was ecstatic too. My Grandad took her to choose but with her hypermobility and lack of strength in her legs, riding a bike has been a slow process. At 6 years old she still uses stabilisers and lacks in confidence to the point she sometimes cries when …
