15/31: My Dream Travel List

I haven’t really been to very many places so far so my dream destination list is pretty big. I cannot see myself visiting many of them any time soon due to kids and finances but I suppose that’s why it’s a dream list. 1) Canada. Hubby has family out there and I’ve heard so many stories that make me want …

Pregnancy Diaries – 32 Weeks #3

I’m feeling a little more positive in myself this week compared to last week but pregnancy has certainly started getting difficult with regards to moving around. Apart from the obvious running after P2, I haven’t been very active this pregnancy anyway but this past week I’ve been struggling with random shooting pains in my groin whenever I get up from …

14/31: Why Do You Blog?

Today’s prompt is “why do you blog?” and I had actually started writing a post like this a week or so ago but ended up deleting it. It just didn’t sound right. Hopefully this time it does. I’ve technically been blogging since 2011 but that first blog I created was very basic and actually quite depressing to read over. Although …

Fisher-Price Discover Your Way

I’ve been really enjoying not having to get up straight away in the mornings and not having an alarm set now that it’s the school holidays. It’s bliss, however this morning my alarm was set for 5:45am, 6am, 6:15am and then when my eyes refused to open I reset it to 6:30am! As I was rinsing the conditioner from my …

Today’s “Blog Every Day In August” prompt was to share where we live and a couple of cool things about it. This is one that’s easy peasy!! This is the place we call home… I made the decision to move from my birth town, Essex, to Kent quite swiftly. When I get something in my mind it stays there until …

12/31: A Guilty Pleasure

This was difficult. I’m beginning to think I don’t know much about myself really. I have two guilty pleasures that stand out to me at this point: 1) Chocolate Gateau. I could eat a whole gateau to myself but not the cherry version, it has to be the full on chocolate gateau. Mmmmmm my mouth is watering just thinking about …

Pregnancy Diaries – #3 Growth Scan Results

My midwife had slight concerns for P3s growth since I was 28 weeks and measuring a few weeks behind. She sent me for a scan today to make sure everything was actually ok. I hadn’t been that worried until last night and just before the scan when sudden thoughts of the worst kept filling my brain. What if there was …

11/31: My 5 Favourite Movies

I used to watch films all the time but as my family grows there’s less and less of the uninterrupted moments. I love most films but when I really think about it these five come up first: 1) Twilight Saga. All of them. I think it’s the only movie series where all movies are just as good as the first! …

LamaLoLi My Little Pony PJ Set & Top Review

When P1 was born I went over the top with buying clothes. Especially when I started work and was earning for myself. The nursery used to laugh and joke that they’d never seen P1 in the same outfit twice, which was slightly embarrassing in a way as she attended nursery three times a week! P2 has been a totally different …

10/31: 3 Items Off My Bucket List

I don’t have a bucket list maybe I should write one. A list of things I’d like to do or achieve before the age of 30, because saying before I die is a little negative and scary! However, I do think I can think of 3 things that I’ve achieved in my life that I’m proud of and I’m going …

Create Your Own Crayons – Recycled Crayons

I’ve been getting increasingly fed up of having broken crayons lying around the house. Or whenever the girls do any drawing together P2 always ends up throwing crayons around and I’m left on hands and knees picking them up. I decided enough was enough and made recycled them into just a few big crayons. Here’s how: Things You’ll Need Crayons …

42 Days Of Summer with McVities BN Biscuits

The summer holidays have certainly began and right at the beginning we asked P1 to name 10 things she wanted to do during the six week holidays. A bit like a bucket list. I didn’t interfere in this list believe it or not, we’d collected some leaflets during the lead up to the holidays so this certainly influenced her decisions; …

Pregnancy Diaries – 31 Weeks #3

My energy levels have stooped. I’m so exhausted this week I’ve been going to bed quite quickly after the girls. Despite this though I’ve had motivation appear from nowhere to sort the kitchen cupboards and even walk to Tesco to grab a few bits and bobs here and there. I’m going to blame my pregnancy on this next thing I’ve …
