IOW 2017 Day 2 – JR Zone, IOW Pearl & Scuba Diving

I lost count of the amount of times I had to refill bottles of milk during our first night at The West Bay Club. P2 and P3 did not sleep well at all, especially P3. She ended up in our bed at 3am. She’s not used to sleeping in a travel cot and is usually my better sleeper out of …

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 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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Playdale Playgrounds Ltd at Manor Park Country Park

The first week of our Easter Holidays was really busy. I wanted to pack in lots of fun for P1 as we are known to be pretty poorly during school holidays and normally we end up sick on the sofa recovering. I wanted to embrace each and every day. Playdale Playgrounds Ltd asked us to review a local park that …

“History is certainly repeating itself!”

P1 came home from school today with a tale that brought back many memories of my own school days. She told me that a boy from year 2 was picking her up in the playground and she didn’t like it.   History is certainly repeating itself! P1 is a tiny dot just like her Mummy and therefore I knew I …
