When Will Winter & Spring Finish Their Arguing?

Seriously Spring time, grow some balls and kick this Winter away sooner rather than later. So in case you are not living in the UK, we are currently living in an icy, snowy, winter wonderland yet again. It’s hard to believe that the photos in this blog post were taken on Friday. On Friday, I found myself outside without my …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Hating On The Snow This Weekend

On Friday we experienced a short lived snippet of what the spring and summer will look like for my family. It was warm enough to sit outside with no coats on. Yet this weekend we have been graced with more snow. Usually I’d be jumping for joy about the white flakes falling from the sky. Willing it, pleading it to …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Extreme Tiredness

I’ve already failed miserably at this so won’t promise I’ll be joining in every Sunday, but I’ll do my best! This Sunday’s photo is from Wednesday. The previous evening P2 was exhausted. I put it down to the adjustment of back to school. She actually asked to go to bed early and I had P2 and P3 both asleep by …

Special Needs Diary #11 – Making Friends & Going On A Sleepover

It feels like turning 8 years old has brought so many new things to P1s life already and it’s only been a few weeks. When she received an invitation to attend a sleepover party with one of her new Brownie friends, I had instant flash backs from my childhood. I remember a couple of sleepovers when there was more than …

Sleep Deprivation Is Actual Torture

I was teased whilst we were in America. I experienced five days of what my life probably should be like by now. I put the girls to bed and didn’t hear from them until morning. In other words I had four full nights of sleep. I don’t think I really got to feel the benefits though as jet lag kicked …

Golden Bear Sleep Tight All Night Iggle Piggle Review

It’s no secret that we have one child that really struggles with sleep. P2 will be four years old in February and I think I can probably count the amount of times she’s ever slept through on my fingers and toes. It has come to light that it’s actually just us that she doesn’t sleep for, she’s fine with my …

Going On A Sleep Retreat & Unboxing A Gift From DryNites

I was invited to a sleep retreat with DryNites as part of our ambassadorship, whilst there I learnt that getting a good night sleep is actually so much more than just putting them to bed in the evening. I had been super excited in the lead up to the sleep retreat. It was going to be one full 24 hours for just …

Why Won’t She Sleep?

I am writing this on the evening of the 4th August. We’ve had a pretty good day in the scheme of things. It started with a trip to the school to drop P1 off for her summer school and the other two were able to play for a bit in the playground. I then went to the doctors, we went …

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 …

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 …

Our New Bedtime Routine

I had drafted up the title of this post with intentions to write about our new bedtime routine. It was back a few weeks ago when I felt we’d finally hit a stage where I was winning the parenting role. We’d had nearly a month of an established routine that worked for us. Then something pooped on my parade before …

I was very anxious when starting this new …

An MRI Scan On A 3 Year Old

I really love the Timehop app sometimes. It reminds you of the insignificant events of your life and the really important ones that you shouldn’t forget but do. A few days ago it showed me a status where I was feeling apprehensive about the MRI scan my eldest had to have. It was four years ago today.  The photos in …
