Easter Fun At Tapnell Farm Park – IOW 2018

We woke pretty early after a full first night of sleep at The Orchards Holiday Park. The birds were singing and the sun rose over the countryside so beautifully. I took the time to cook porridge as requested by P2 and whilst Hubby had a snooze I began to edit the first vlog. Easter Fun At Tapnell Farm Park – …

Little Tikes Fun Zone Drop Zone Review

I completely appreciate that we’ve just come out of a pretty frozen spell of snowy weather. That it’s still floating around the 5-8degree mark most days. On Friday temperatures hit a whopping 12degrees and there wasn’t a chance in hell that I’d not take full advantage of the sunshine and put together our new Little Tikes Fun Zone Drop Zone …

She’s So Good At Puzzles

As a child I used to love doing puzzles. Don’t judge me for blowing my own trumpet, but I was pretty good! Strangely enough two of my three daughters have followed in my footsteps with not only a love for puzzles but a skill for them too. My eldest has lost a little bit of interest as she’s grown older …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Daffodil Season

I walk to school or nursery every single day at least once, usually three times, and it’s a great way for me to start taking in my local area and noticing habits. Suddenly over the past week I have started to see shoots of little flowers emerging from their beds. For me, it’s a sign that Spring and warmer, longer …

Her First Day At Preschool

I have read so many posts in the past week about parents feeling emotional about their children starting school. I’ve never been able to relate to that feeling, I’ve never really felt that emotional attachment to my children, the sentimental need to keep drawings. In fact I thought I had something wrong with me until today. I had little sleep …

P3 Had Her Introductory Session At Nursery/Preschool

I have been waiting for this day for such a long time. I was awake so early, getting organised, putting my makeup on and my clothes. Typically P2 and P3 didn’t wake until quarter to eight, like really?! Why didn’t they do this in the holidays?! Somehow we still managed to be a little rushed out of the door. So …

Life Is Changing

The last two weeks have felt like they whizzed by in a blur of emotions that I didn’t anticipate. The week in the lead up to P2 finishing her preschool years felt bittersweet. We had sports day and even that made me well up with emotions. One of the Mum’s arranged a little get together for the girls leaving and …

A Family Day Out At Godstone Farm

There is exactly one week between my Grandad and my Mum’s birthdays. This was the same for my Nan and me. It’s always hard to plan birthday celebrations when you have kids to entertain at the same time. This year with the weather warm and bright, we decided to head to Godstone Farm. We’ve not been to Godstone Farm before, …

Doing Makeup On My Three Year Old

There’s no hiding from the fact my Hubby is extremely outnumbered. He’s even begun to pick pink or girly things from shops over a more masculine version. Like pink shower gel instead of a green or blue for example. I love that I have daughters. I have visions of shopping, spa days and afternoon teas when they are older. I …

We Have A Threenager

As if having to struggle each day with P3 having awful, early, terrible twos wasn’t bad enough, we have been thrown in the deep end with P2 experiencing some serious threenager moments. She is struggling in herself I think and it’s really painful for me to witness it each day. Some days she is the sweetest. She is kind, caring and …
