#BLOGMAS Day 6 – Bluewater Grotto & Ice Rink

I am loving the decorations everywhere. The way that the anticipation of Christmas spreads such an upbeat joy now that it is December. Recently we had been invited to experience Christmas at Bluewater. I was super excited as they have an ice rink. We bundled the kiddies in the car after school and headed to the shopping mall. I love …

Christmas Gifts For Under £5 With #sdfiverchallenge

For me Sports Direct is associated with my husbands pants and socks. He won’t buy them from anywhere else. We was recently challenged to find some Christmas gifts online for under £5. To me five pounds seems like such a small amount of money to find any decent gifts so of course I was up for the challenge. I couldn’t …

Back To School With Smiggle

Back to school is literally just around the corner for us now. There’s a matter of days to get everything together; uniform, new shoes, coats and stationery sorted. The girls were really excited to receive a huge bundle of Smiggle stationery and back to school essentials when we returned from our holiday. We had actually popped into our local Smiggle …

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 …

ASDA Little Angels Day & Night Pants Review

The saying that every child is different, most definitely runs accurate in my house. We have three girls and each one of them is extremely different. Not only personality wise but with their developmental milestones too. P1 was very different, she was hitting things late due to her being premature and so things like crawling, walking and even toilet training …

Birthday Shopping With My Grandad & Mum

For Christmas last year my Grandad promised me a shopping trip. It was his way of giving me a present. I ended up going child free and meeting my Grandad and Auntie at the shopping centre. We did lots of shopping and then had lunch on my Grandad’s wallet which obviously is always fantastic. I never know what to ask …

A Date Night At The Brewery Romford

Hubby and I recently had the pleasure in returning back to The Brewery Romford for some child free time. We visisted in November last year and it was a Sunday so a lot of the shops were closed as it was early in the morning, so I was pretty excited about heading there with some time to actually visit some …

Special Needs Diary #5 – Going To The Supermarket

Dear Diary, It’s very rare that P1 comes to a supermarket because we tend to do our food shopping during the week when she is at school. Now that it’s the school holidays I am seeing a new wall that P1 has to knock down or hide behind. I watched a short little clip on Facebook about disabilities not always …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #18/52

We haven’t done a massive food shop in such a long time. We seem to have got into the habit of just going to our local supermarket for meals for that day or the next few days. Which was working fine but with our recent holiday the food cupboards had got quite bare. The kids were demanding food constantly and …

A #MomsDayOffContest With Crocs

I spend every second of my day doing something child related. I also nearly always have our youngest attached to my leg, hip or holding my hand because she’s a definite Mummy’s girl at the moment. To find time for myself I used to go to a fitness class but motivation for that has disappeared and so it’s become a …

ALDI Specialbuys New Baby Range

Over a year ago now we reviewed some nappies from ALDI and were so incredibly impressed by them. In fact they were the best nappy for absorbency we’ve ever used but unfortunately, at the time our local ALDI was a pretty long way away and it just didn’t work out cost effective to shop there. Especially just for nappies. But since …

Halloween is now well out of the way and so the shops, TV adverts and blogs have fast become Christmas obsessed. So here I am doing my part to the Christmas hype. It’s just over a month until Christmas and that thought scares me. I am so incredibly excited for Christmas but we haven’t really done anything in terms of …

“The attention just one little human needs is incredible”

This weekend is the usual first weekend of the month when P1 and P2 head back to Essex to spend time with my Mum. I’ve felt mixed emotions surrounding these weekends. The girls enjoy themselves and it gives us space but it hasn’t ever really made life easier. P3 loves to cause enough fuss and demand enough attention to make …

My Birthday Wishlist

The other day I actually had to work out how old I’m going to be this year. I seriously couldn’t remember which is quite embarrassing. I’m going to be 23. Each year I put together a little wish list of things I’d love to have, of course some of the things on my list are completely unrealistic but it’s worth …
