My Feelings On Our Last Night At Home

I am writing this sat on the end of P3s bed. There’s the sound of snoring and a sense of peace finally. It’s been a long weekend of lots of tears, tantrums and shouting.

Going To Thorpe Park For The First Time

Each month we are lucky enough to get one weekend child free. When this first started back up again after a short break when my mum had her kidney transplant, we used our weekends to pretty much slob around and do nothing but binge on Netflix. Believe it or not, that can get quite boring after a while and so …

Dodging The Rain & Having A Family Day

I have been feeling so much of that dreaded mum guilt lately. It sparks up the most at the weekends. We fill our weekdays with so many activities, trips to the shops, running arranges and getting the girls to various clubs that I sort of need the weekend as a break. It also becomes our cleaning time too. I always …

Siblings 2017 – February

I’ve felt like the month has flown by and it’s absurd that we are already in February. February is a big month for us. P2 turned four years old, my stepdad is giving my mum one of his kidneys and the girls are starting new groups, activities and having play dates again. I’m writing our Siblings post with only a …
