Princess 1’s Birthday Party with My Little Pony

Every time we arrive home from one of P1s friends parties, we get bombarded with requests and ideas that P1 wants for her own party. Last year we didn’t have one, we didn’t have the funds to throw a party in a hall or playcentre and our house is certainly not big enough for it to be held here. So …

“I get such a warm fuzzy feeling when I receive gifts”

There’s certainly a trend in the blogging world right now with Christmas just two weeks away! Every where I look there’s photos of Christmas decorations, food, gift guides, Christmas jumpers and product reviews. Oh the reviews are coming in thick at the moment for me and at times I’ve felt completely overwhelmed and slightly scared I’ll lose some readership by …

“Our house has been filled with germs this weekend”

Our house has been filled with germs this weekend. Hubby has had a cough for a while now but Friday saw P2s temperature rise and her cheeks were bright red. She was due to spend the day with her Grandparents which had to be cancelled, however P1 went for a rescheduled sleepover instead. On Saturday, I woke with a snotty …

To My Princess 2 – 1 Year 10 Months

To my Princess 2, For a while now we’ve been saying “she’s nearly two” or “aged 2-3” or “terrible twos come early”. Writing your age again has hit me just how grown up you really are for it. You’re only a year! Not two. You are cheeky. Each day you do the most hilarious things like faces, actions and words. …

“Christmas is all wrapped up”

Last year P1 was very ungrateful for her birthday and Christmas presents. We’d forked out a lot of money to get her a Schleich farm house and various accessories – anyone who knows what I’m talking about will know that a tiny animal costs around £4. At 5 years old, children just don’t understand value. This year we vowed to …

“It seems the issues we have at home are also issues she has at school”

We’ve had to rearrange appointments to see P1s teacher several times due to illnesses, births and hospital visits but finally we managed to see the teacher with the SENCO yesterday afternoon. We had a few things on our list to discuss. Concentration, BEAM (physiotherapy she was meant to be having during school) and coordination. We also needed an update on …

The Magical Orlando Tag

With Christmas approaching far too quickly the blogging world has been all about gift guides and competitions. Well I’m entering the FloridaTix competition so here’s my entry: 1. Which Hogwarts house would you be sorted into? I’d hope the sorting hat would see my love for Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) and put me into Slytherin but in reality I’d be …

“The only positive is that it’s a gain and not a loss”

I felt so nervous waking up this morning. P3 was due to get weighed again to check the weight gain situation. I’ve been trying really hard to get more feeds into one day, I’ve been eating and drinking better too. I woke the poor little lady up from her nice cosy slumber in her Doona and took her inside the …

So we’ve just received our last Nonabox of the three we’ve been reviewing. They’ve certainly got better with time! November’s Nonabox was packed with some amazing products. I was so excited peering inside and rummaging. Everything in this months box will be well used, just like the Muslin blanket we had in last months. Sleepytot Small Bunny Baby Comforter (£10.99) – …

Frankie & Benny’s Festive Menu Review

Hubby and I wanted to treat my MiL, BiL and her partner to a Christmas meal to thank them for the unconditional love and support they’ve given us this past year. We’d discussed several places we could go and then Frankie & Benny’s asked me to review their Festive Menu. This gave us a fantastic opportunity to treat the family …

Sweet Dreamers Ewan The Dream Sheep Review

Regular readers will know that I’m an owner to a toddler that has struggled for 20 months to self-settle so I’ve been trying my hardest not to make the same mistakes with P3. I rarely allow her to fall asleep feeding and will always put her back in the SnuzPod at night. In all honesty P3 has been a fantastic …

“During the day we have no issues”

I didn’t expect to have problems feeding this time round. With P2 it had all gone pretty smoothly but with the weight gain falling heavy on my mind the past few days I’ve been questioning my ability. I’ve done a lot of Googling and the support I’ve had via Instagram, Twitter and Facebook has been astounding but I still can’t …
