A Fun Free Activity This Summer

I have felt so much guilt in the leading up to this school holiday. P1 was offered another place in the holiday school. We always sign her up even though it is not compulsory. It benefits her hugely by receiving extra lessons, extra fun and chances to see her friends and even make new ones that she wouldn’t necessarily talk …

My 24th Birthday At Bewl Water

Since becoming a Mum my birthdays do not feel as significant. Apart from the fact I am getting older, my birthday just feels like a normal day. I wake up with the kids early, I get them breakfast, get them ready for wherever they are going that day. However, this year I invited my Grandad along for my birthday and …

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 …

Learning About Water With Robinsons #EnjoyMoreWater

The first half of our half term was pretty pants. Our car is in the garage again because the garage has messed up big time so we were left confined to our house for a few days. With several planned blog trips to attend we decided to hire a car. Going from the Range Rover to a little Vauxhall Mokka …

5 Benefits Of Sensory Play

Think about your favourite memories. How many of these have a particular colour, smell or sound associated with them? The smell of a crackling barbecue in the summer or the roar of the crowd when your favourite football team scores a last-minute winner, are two examples. Our brains trigger flashbacks to those happy times as soon as our nostrils or …

My Sunday Photo – 23/08/2015

We don’t have a garden. Our little bit of outdoor space is a shared access way between our house and our outbuilding. This summer I’ve actually been brave enough to start using it. Our landlord put up a shelter a few months ago and it’s been great. It gives the feeling of having a conservatory and therefore we have started …

My Sunday Photo – 19/07/2015

We have been spending loads of time lately doing things as a family. I think as they all start getting older things are becoming much easier when we go out. Yesterday, we headed to Eynsford Water Ford where we went when we had the heatwave but we didn’t get to take P1. Hubby had ordered, from the request of P2, …

“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 …

Bathing Three with Paddy’s Bathroom

Bath time is always a bit of a struggle in this house. Even before I didn’t have enough hands for each child of mine. As a baby, P1 hated having her hair wash and P2 screams blue murder every single bath time we have. P3 has been the odd one ou, enjoying the warm water and the splashing right from …

Tommee Tippee Big Adventure – Straw Cup Review & Competition

Friday morning we woke early. I really hate being awake when it’s dark outside and the girls are still snoring, oh and especially on a school holiday. But we had a good reason, we were off on a Big Adventure to see Tommee Tippee at The Baby Show. We’d been invited to a Princess & Pirate Party so the girls …

“It was also P3s first time swimming”

This morning we went straight from the school run to the swimming pool. P1 swims every Tuesday morning with her school yet we are shamefully a family that doesn’t really go swimming together. I can’t remember the last time I saw P1 swim but I do remember the last time we took P2. P3 was in my tummy and I …

Cusson Mum & Me #voiceofmums – Head to Toe Wash Review

I’ve worked with Cusson Mum & Me recently and was then asked to be involved in the Cusson Mum & Me #voiceofmums campaign. Ok so I didn’t have the privilege to actually be in their pretty awesome video: But I did get the chance to review their Head To Toe Wash!! I dread bathtime. I really do. P1 is a breeze but …

“For the first time in 17 months I actually enjoyed bathing P2!”

If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know that from day one P2 has been terrified of water. Well I’m writing today, the 12th day of July 2014, to tell the whole wide world that we have a breakthrough in the water department. We’ve been seeing little signs of improvement for a while with the weather warmer and outdoor water play …
