Young Mum? You Are Not Alone! #CMYANA

Channel Mum recently shared that 9 out of 10 Mums feel lonely and it started their You Are Not Alone (or YANA or use the hashtag #CMYANA) campaign. It has really hit the media and it has also got me thinking about my own experiences of being a mum and feeling lonely. I think I most felt the loneliness eight …

There are many things I hate about Facebook and also, many things I love about it too. A few weeks ago something popped up on my news feed. A friend had shared a group that was about to open it’s doors. The Soft Play Cafe. She had only shared it because the photo that was used happened to feature her …

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 …

Reflecting On A Year Of Nursery

It’s that time of the year when suddenly we realise there’s just a few weeks or even days left of the schooling year. It terrifies me every year but for some reason I’m feeling a lot more sentimental this time round as we wave goodbye to P2s very first year of nursery. I love her nursery and the setting has …

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 …

Earning Her Brownie Hostess Badge

P1 has been a Brownie for four months now. I’ve been pretty sceptical about how long she’d stick mat it because I wasn’t a Girl Guide for long myself. However, she is thoroughly enjoying every meet they have and attends weekly. Being a Brownie is about exploring new hobbies, learning new skills and making new friends and I really think …

My Experience Of #BML16

At 7:30am last week I was stood with Hubby at the train station after leaving our smallest baby in the car with my MiL. It was the first time we’d ever left her overnight before so both of us were pretty nervous. In fact I felt quite sick and had barely eaten from nerves but also excitement because we were …

ASDA Little Angels Spa Day At The Dorchester Hotel

I have longed for a spa break for my entire adult life. I have never been to a spa nor have I ever experienced a professional massage of any sort. So when a pretty exciting email found its way into my inbox I rushed to respond. A spa experience at the Dorchester Hotel with ASDA Little Angels. How could a girl refuse …

I’m Going To #BML16

It’s that time of the year where bloggers get all excited about the UKs biggest blogging and social media conference, BritMums Live or this year it’s known as #BML16. This year will be my third year attending although this will be the first where I have no baby in my belly or in my arms so I’m hoping that means I’ll …

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 …

“The six week holidays will help to boost my personal blogging”

Just before the summer holidays started there was plenty of talk in the blogging community of fellow bloggers going on a break over the school holidays. I sat there knowing that I most definitely wouldn’t be having a break from blogging ever. We are now in the middle of the second week of the school holidays and I’m already finding …

Gymboree Sevenoaks Review

Getting out and about is so important to me at the moment but as I no longer have a car that I am able to drive (hubby’s car is manual and I possess an Automatic License) I find myself a little stuck with options. I am thankful that we have two stay and plays within walking distance from our house …

Leaving The Recluse Behind

When I had P1 I was made to feel ashamed of myself by some mums at the school, despite the fact all my fellow school “friends” we’re very supportive. The petition to have me removed from the school only made me more determined to prove them wrong. But as time went on and P1 arrived it was clear that becoming …

Siblings May 2015

I asked P1 today what she thought about being a sister and her answer was just one word, fun! I realised that through all the problems we’ve been having with them individually, as sister’s they do spend a lot of time laughing. I want the three of them to be absolute best friends but right at the moment P1 and …
