World Book Day 2016

The influx of happy children dressed up as their favourite book characters over social media can only mean one thing, it’s world book day! A day for celebrating books and reading. Personally, I am a lover of a physical book over an online edition, which do you prefer? I can’t remember what characters I used to go as at school. …

The 3rd Time Of Moving From Cot To Bed

P2 was just 15 months old when we moved her from cot to bed, or mattress on the floor to be precise. I don’t remember when I moved P1, I’m pretty sure she was much older. I thought we had plenty of time before it would be P3s turn but that time came and on the 23rd February she came …

Bernard Matthews Stir Fry-Days

I am very excited to announce that I am on the Bernard Matthews Family Panel for a second year running. We really enjoyed all the challenges last year so it wasn’t a hard decision to take part again. This year we are kicking off with a Stir-Fry challenge. We actually have never had a stir-fry at home which is really ridiculous considering …

10 Reasons Why I’m Not Having Any More Children

We were never sure whether to stay with two or venture into the world of three children. Three seemed scary and now that I physically have three little humans I am 100% sure that I’m not having any more children. I know that is probably a bit of a negative statement to make, especially at just 23 years old but …

A Treat Idea For Nursery School Friends

Haribo sweets are most definitely a popular choice when it comes to getting a little treat for your children’s friends when it’s their birthdays. I used to go with a carrier bag full of sweets, sweets I happened to hate as a child. With it being the first year that P2 has to dish out the treats for her birthday, …

We Are All Poorly

It all started on Wednesday. P3 had a restless night which is a little unusual for her but we headed off to playgroup blaming it on the new bottom tooth that was poking through. She was super clingy which is very unlike her and even the other mummies commented on it. She felt a little hot so I took her …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 16 Months

To my Princess 3, I bet you’re getting bored of reading all these letters when they start with “I can’t believe you’re X months old now”. Well I can’t. I sometimes wonder whether you and your sisters will just stumble upon these letters or if I’m going to print them all off and keep them in a folder for you. …

To my Princess 2, There is just one more month left of being two. Three years ago you were tucked up inside my tummy, kicking away, not a care in the world. I however had the itchiest of skins and was so desperate to have you out. This is just a short little letter as I want to write again …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 15 Months

To my Princess 3, I really do think growing up suits you and it’s so scary to think you are already 15 months old! So far you are taking everything in your stride since learning to walk. You are so much fun now and unless you’re ill, you are such a joy to be around. You’re personality is absolutely hilarious. You …

Share Your Year – Our 2015

2015 is very nearly at an end and it’s time to reflect on the year that has gone past. I honestly don’t think that 2015 was an overly bad year for us so I’m going to reflect in 3 month sections. I’m linking up with Lauren at Belle Du Brighton who gave me this idea. January, February, March I kick …

“It was lovely to have all three running about together”

Around Easter time each year since moving to Sevenoaks, we have been gifted a membership to the local Nature Trail by my MiL. I think originally it was my MiLs way of getting us to go out more because I was a little reluctant during the first 6 months of living here and was happy to spend day in day …

All New Bob The Builder Magazine Review

I have been so out of touch with children’s telly since having children which I now sounds completely ridiculous. When my little brother was born in 2000 I became in tune with the programmes and now they are all being renewed and spruced up. Bob The Builder is one of the characters who have had a makeover. I was all …

“I had made the definite decision not to cosleep with P3”

Cosleeping with P2 was not a conscious decision that we’d made. It just happened and we managed to get more sleep despite having a leg in our ribs or our eyes getting poked out. We coslept for around a year on and off. Although it worked for us, I had made the definite decision not to cosleep with P3 under …
