Letter To My Princess 1 – 10 Years Old

To my Princess 1, This has been a birthday that sort of terrified me. Ten years is such a huge milestone. Double digits, a whole decade and the final few years until you become a teenager. If I’m honest seeing you creep closer to ten has also made me feel very old. Your birthday also marks another thing, the amount …

A Mum & Daughter Day At The Ideal Home Show Christmas 2018

Christmas is by far my favourite time of the year but weirdly this year has felt the least Christmassy. In fact the whole idea of it has been making me feel anxious and a little sick. Don’t get me wrong it is still my favourite time of the year – I adore the magic! Back in November I saw that …

Siblings 2018 – December – Looking Back On A Year

So much can change in a month. Our biggest change which I want to talk about separately as soon as I can catch my breath from the Christmas chaos, is that Eva got a space in the new school that we had moved Freya too. It happened far quicker than we ever anticipated and we are obviously thrilled. Eva has …

Have We Finally Conquered The Milk Habit?

For anybody new here, it’s probably best that I explain the situation right from the beginning as quickly as I can. Eva and Elsa have had a milk addiction. I actually think it was more of a bottle addiction, to be honest I’m not entirely sure. Both bottles and milk went hand in hand. Basically, wherever we went we had …

Changing My Daughter’s Primary School

It’s been really hard to sit and write about this. I want to be fully transparent whilst also protecting our daughters too. When you talk about your child’s school online you could be putting them at risk so it’s hard to talk openly without being open. I hope you get what I mean. It was weird. This whole situation came …

We Are Taking Part In Vlogmas 2018

Father Christmas Experience At Marsh Farm 2018

This year is our third year going to the Marsh Farm Father Christmas Experience. I’ve said it from the very first time we went, it’s our favourite grotto! So naturally we were very excited for this year too. We were booked for the first Father Christmas Experience of the day. We arrived early all dressed in our Christmas jumpers. It …

Riding Her Bike For The First Time

Those first moments are so incredible as a parent. It’s so hard to explain but they just give you this warm fuzzy feeling you wish you could bottle and keep forever. I feel incredibly lucky that I chose to write about my life online. That I chose this way to document it all rather than in scrapbooks. I can look …

Our Bedtime Routine With Moonlite Storybook Projector

I don’t know about you but my life as a parent is hectic. There’s so much going on throughout the entire day like ferrying the kids to school or a club, the endless laundry washing, the cooking and the organisation of everything. The kids have so much going on with all the learning they do throughout a school day, the …

Our Halloween 2018

I didn’t want to fully submerge myself in Christmas before acknowledging the Halloween we had this year. As a Christian I’m not meant to “celebrate” Halloween. So I sort of tend to try to slip our fun quickly past before anybody notices. The truth is, I don’t think it hurts my family or myself to take part in the fun …

Siblings 2018 – November

Anybody else feeling a little uneasy that it’s Christmas next month. The end of another year. Obviously Christmas time is really magical but I just feel like this year has gone so much faster than any other year. This past month has zoomed by incredibly fast and I’ve actually not taken many, if any, photos during November of my girls …

Great Days Out In Hertfordshire

Hubby and I really try to keep our little tribe entertained during the holidays and weekends. We’ve spent a lot of time exploring our home county of Kent, but sometimes it’s nice to venture further afield. After taking a few trips to Hertfordshire, we realised just how many awesome activities there are for children there. Here’s a round-up of my …

Family Emirates Air Line Trip

A few months ago we were invited into London for The Dinosaurs In The Wild experience. It’s situated in the Greenwich Peninsula along with the O2 Arena, many restaurants and the Emirates Airline. Before our visit into the dinosaurs, we checked the prices of the airline trip. We was actually pretty shocked to find the cost but then we live …

Baking A Halloween Spooky Sports Day Story

I’m all in for a seasonal bake. It’s much more fun than a seasonal craft and weirdly less mess in our case. Although admittedly they do more baking with my Mum than they do with me. As it’s Halloween season, we decided to take part in the Halloween Story bake that Betty Crocker is currently running over on their website. …

Luvabella Interactive Doll Review

As much as P3 adores playing with cars, she also has a great passion for role play with dolls. Although I now know that the Luvabella Doll has been a rather popular toy over the past year, I hadn’t actually heard of her. I did know that P3 would be delighted to get her hands on one and was thrilled …
