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 …

Bath Time With Childs Farm

Did you know that our skin is the largest organ of our body? Did you know that the hair on our head is there to act as a coolant and insulator but also to protect us from the sun’s UV rays? This week our skin has been enjoying lapping up some Vitamin D from the sun that has been shining …

Oh my goodness, hands up if you’re loving this hot weather? I definitely prefer warmer weather over the cold weather. It makes me feel happier and more at ease with life in general. We still have a few more days left of school for P1 but P2 has already broken up for the summer holidays. We’ve started to put together …

Climbing The Stairs At 10 Months

In January last year P2 climbed my MiLs stairs for the very first time. She was 11 months and 10 days old. It shocked us as she’d never made any indications that she wanted to climb anything. Today, at 10 months and 11 days old, P3 has climbed my MiLs stairs for the first time. I didn’t get to capture …

Although it seems like the warm weather is a distant memory now, it’s always nice to treat your feet to some TLC and I was recently sent some lovely foot care goodies from Scholl and from justmylook to kick start the summery feeling.

Thunder and Lightning Storm July 2014

I’ve been craving a holiday for a while. Not any holiday, a get-on-the-plane sunny beach holiday but I needn’t be upset really. The weather in England has been so beautiful already this summer but I haven’t been able to enjoy it. Pregnancy has certainly got the better of me in this heat. Not only have I outgrown anything that was …

Pregnancy Diaries – 28 Weeks #3

After a short spout of bad weather, the good weather is back and my golly isn’t it?! It’s been an average of 26c the past few days and it doesn’t look to be cooling down. This heat is dreadful and I can see why everyone moans about summer babies. Both my girls were born in winter months meaning I was …

New Wine – Day 1

What A State

It’s been a busy day. And a hot day! I must have looked a right idiot walking through town – I was wearing a black vest top, pink jeans and my black knitted winter boots!!! My pumps have basically fallen apart and my toenails are currently fashioned by P1s artistic nail painting, not sandal/flip flop friendly. P2 and me had …
