Welcome to our summer scrapbook! It’s our first Sunday of the school summer holidays although technically we’ve already had two full weeks with P3. I thought it would be a great idea to create a roundup style post of each week of our holidays. The aim is to just showcase one photo from each day of the week with a …

A Summer Family BBQ Social

I should probably start by pointing out that this little afternoon adventure happened right at the beginning of July. I’ve been really struggling to keep up with life and blog stuff as the end of the school year approached. Our lives were just manic! I think I’m about ready to start documenting our experiences once again. My mother-in-law kindly invited …

The Beach At Bluewater 2018

What does summer time mean to you? For my little tribe it means longer days, ice creams, sand, shorts and sandals (Although Hubby is still refusing to embrace man sandals or flip flops so his feet are so pale!)! We adore summer here. Last year The Beach at Bluewater arrived for summer and we had a great time so I was thrilled …

Siblings 2018 – July

I’m going to dare to say it… Did you realise we are now closer to next Christmas than last Christmas? I know scary!! This month we have been blessed with amazing weather.

Creative Fun With Hama Beads & Giveaway

“Mummy can we do an activity?” Are the words that come out of my darling middle daughters mouth every single day. We once had a pretty extensive crafting/activity cupboard around Christmas time but with P2’s relentless requests that supply has gone down rapidly. We are working with DKL over the next few months to showcase some of their amazing toy …

Revamping The McDonald’s Happy Meal

I am definitely not ashamed to admit that my family love a McDonald’s. We don’t go often but I think it’s a great treat for the girls and have always loved the food. I was lucky enough to work with McDonald’s to go behind the scenes in one of their restaurants, hear about future plans (one of which happened to …

Dinosaurs In The Wild Summer 2018

Back in February I sent my girls with their Grandparents to the VIP Launch of Dinosaurs In The Wild. They had a brilliant time and even went again the following day. A few weeks ago we got an invite to head back to London to experience the Dinosaurs In The Wild for ourselves and to have a talk with a …

A Memory Game With Orchard Toys

It’s no secret. We love a game. I’ve even had to clear out a junk cupboard to make way for the slowly growing collection. One of our favourite game brands has definitely got to be Orchard Toys. We recently received the game One Dog, Ten Frogs. It is a giant floor memory game suitable for ages 3 years and above. …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Reflecting

We’ve been child free this weekend. It’s felt like quite a while since we had some proper child free time as the past few times has been interupted by chickenpox, a sleepover and being just so busy! The lead up to the summer holidays has already been so incredibly manic. There’s been school trips, days out and so many after …
