Tips For Taking Children Swimming

I vaguely remember the days of swimming with just one daughter. I managed to make it a faffing ordeal if I’m completely honest. It would take me forever to get the both of us either into our costumes or out of them and back into our clothes. Skip on a few more years and two more children and I think …

A Summer Play Date

I have a small group of friends over here in Kent. This is something completely alien to me though and I am still learning all the etiquette of friendships and play dates because since I left school and had P1, I found all of my friends to disappear and I was quite happy being alone. But in the past few months …

Yup, you read it right, I’m sending my eldest to summer school. A month or so ago we received a letter from P1s school offering her a place for the summer school. I think this is only offered to a select amount of children who require extra help with school work. P1 is struggling which the school are on top …

Worlds Apart Junior ReadyBed Review

Every first weekend of the month P1 and P2 head off for a one night sleep over with my Mum. This weekend will be P3s first experience of the sleepover as we’ve felt she was a little too young previously. The girls have their own special room and have been kitted out with a bed, but P3 doesn’t yet so …

Potty Training For The Last Time With Huggies & Munchkin

We talk about cherishing every developmental first all the time as parents. That first smile, when they sat unaided for the first time, tasted their first bit of food and the day they took their first steps. But for me I think the biggest part and probably the most scary is definitely the potty training phase.  As a first time …

A Nursery Trip To Hastings

In the last few weeks I’ve been faced with a dilemma. Ultimately it felt like I was picking my favourite child because both P1 and P2 had school/nursery trips on the exact same day.  Originally my heart was set to go with P1 because in all the seven years of parenting I’ve had, I have never been on a school …

Sleep & Reducing Milk

I gave this post a title and saved it to my drafts a few weeks ago and it has been left blank since. I’ve been a little scared to even think about physically writing the words down just in case I jinx things because quite frankly, it’s been known to happen with my blog. The topic I want to discuss …

ASDA Little Angels First Pants Review

I have a thing for nappies. I’d like to think I’ve settled a bit after 7 years of parenting, but that thing is still there. It’s a little OCD like actually and can be quite embarrassing. I tell myself I’m like it because I want to make sure my girls are most comfortable but I’m not entirely true that’s the …

Weather Craft Fun #BostikBloggers

This months theme is definitely appropriate. The weather is finally feeling warmer and brighter which generally makes things feel happier for me. Of course we are in England and the weather is never really certain. We were sent another box of fun craft supplies from Bostik and this month I came up with an idea. I originally wanted a weather …

A Taster Of Summer

Last year I wrote about how I hate Autumn and how autumn hates me too. I’m tiny and I struggle to find clothes I’m comfortable in that do not drown my petite figure. However, Spring and Summer are my months. These are the months I flourish in. Over the weekend we experienced a taster of summer here in Kent and most …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #19/52

Each month we have one night and two nearly full days when there’s just P3 to look after as the other two go to my parents in Essex. Occasionally we arrange for P3 to spend a few hours with her Nannie but more often than not we have two days to focus on P3. Things always feel so incredibly strange on …

Do Our Parents Influence Our Career Choices?

Perhaps it’s not something you’ve thought about before, but did you know that your career choices have probably been – at least in some way – influenced by your parents? Whether you’ve had happy-go-lucky parents who wanted nothing more than for you to feel satisfied, or go-getter parents who measured your success by your income and job title, there are …
