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 …

Today was not a day full of win moments unfortunately. In fact, the past week has been totally draining. The kids are spending most of their time doing their best …

Letting The Children Make Lunch with Bernard Matthews

Meal times can be pretty boring. We all eat, three times a day or more. Children specifically get given their food laid out in front of them and they eat it, or throw it, mash it between their fingers, but usually they eat it. Then Bernard Matthews sent over their next Family Panel task and I was thrilled. Putting the …

“We survived the hottest day of the year!”

Yesterday, 1st July 2015, marked the hottest July day in the UK so far. Temperatures soared to 36.7C in many parts of the UK. I checked my weather app regularly and the highest we saw in Kent was 34C. A crazy, dangerous temperature but I’m pleased to announce that we survived the hottest day of the year. As I’ve said …

FirstBIKE Racing Red Balance Bike Review

I was so excited about P1 getting her first ever push bike. She was ecstatic too. My Grandad took her to choose but with her hypermobility and lack of strength in her legs, riding a bike has been a slow process. At 6 years old she still uses stabilisers and lacks in confidence to the point she sometimes cries when …

“I’m trying to enjoy every inch of sun”

Life seems busier than ever at the moment. Probably because I’m trying to enjoy every inch of sun that shines in the sky this year and our little home houses three active monsters so I’ve sort of been push to go outside whether it’s across the road, out in the access way or to the park. Park being the popular …

Our Sunshine Afternoon in the Easter Holidays

This morning, like most of our recent mornings, I opened the blinds to clear blue sky and sunshine. Last year we had a pretty hot summer but I was unable to enjoy it properly because I was heavily pregnant and sweating like a pig. Now P3 is here I’m certain to enjoy it. Getting out in the sun doesn’t have …

My Sunday Photo – 12/04/2015

Yet another Sunday is here. This linky that I’m joining has certainly made me realise just how quickly time is passing. This week I have chosen a photo of P2. I think it really sums up the week we’ve had. This week the weather has been warmer. It’s been like a slight snippet and taster of what hopefully Summer will …

“The weather has been truly glorious this past week!”

I’m going to jinx this so I apologise in advance, but the weather has been truly glorious this past week! We aren’t lucky enough to have a garden with our house so getting outdoor time has been tricky. We are fortunate enough to have a few parks and a nature trail nearby and we’ve made full use of those lately. …

“Playing amongst the spring daffodils”

Tantrums are a common situation that we deal with in our household. Whether it’s a 5 year old argument with back chatting and stomping or a 13 month old screaming with her head on the floor between her legs. A day without tantrums would be a day where you check to see if the girls are poorly. We seemed to …

Mr Sun, Sun, Mr Golden Sun, Please Shine Down On Me!

We retreated to my MiLs yesterday. After the police had been to take statements about my OHs bike, he desperately wanted to be with his Mum. Understandable. He needed a distraction to the devastation he’s feeling inside. My OH, of course, is still struggling to come to terms with the fact someone could just so easily take his bike from …
