Family Day Out To Colchester Zoo

When I come up with ideas for blog posts I usually save the title as a draft post. Ready for me to come back to at a later date or when I have time. With it being a new year, I thought I’d take a look at the many draft titles I’ve got and give them a bit of an …

Why I Am Now Using Their Names

Happy new year!! You may have noticed that in very recent blog posts I’ve started using my daughters names. I sort of wanted to explain why I’ve made that decision all of a sudden. Basically, the princess thing came about as a way to protect their identity. A way to keep them safe in this weird online world and community …

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 …

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

It’s so cliche to say that the year has gone by in a dash. Everyone says it all of the time but truly it has! We’ve had a big year with many changes and lots of fun. This is just a quick post to let you know that I am taking part in vlogmas this year, the fourth year in …

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 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 …

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. …

Our First Pumpkin Patch Trip

I had absolutely no intentions to go to a pumpkin patch ever! We always buy our pumpkins from the supermarket around a week before Halloween. Then all the photos starting popping up on social media and I definitely had this urge to visit a pumpkin patch purely for the photos. That’s the blogger in me you see. I researched a …

Siblings 2018 – October

I suddenly remembered last night that I had completely forgotten to create a siblings post for October. It’s the first month I’ve ever forgotten or left it this late. We’ve been so incredibly rushed off of our feet. I’ve grabbed a couple of recent photos of the girls together to showcase this month. I actually love the ones I’ve chosen …

A Surprise Cavapoo Puppy

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook then you’ll already know about our little surprise. I insta-storied the day as it panned out you see. I was far too excited. I’ll try to keep my excitement at bay for this blog post. Basically my Mum is a crazy animal person. She was a veterinary nursery for the majority of …
