My Sunday Photo 2016 – #25/52

I’ve only just realised I missed last weeks photo which is really bad. We were in Bluestone having a really lovely break. We had hired a golf buggy on the Sunday so spent most of our day on that exploring the grounds and having loads of fun family time. This Sunday we have spent the entire day in London. We …

My Relationship With Food

Growing up I don’t think food was really my friend. I’d turn my nose up at anything remotely odd looking or smelling without even actually tasting it. I wouldn’t dare to touch a pepperoni pizza or a Chinese, let alone Curry or even fruit. I was always the reason we chose certain restaurants or had certain things for dinner and …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #23/52

We have been super busy this half term that part of me was really excited about this weekend. P1 and P2 are back in Essex and usually having just the one is a nice break for us. This weekend P3 has been a little grumpy, she was good during the food shop yesterday but the being cooped up the rest …

A Brand New Design

For a while my old logo was frustrating me. It wasn’t really up to date with us as a family. The child that represented P3 was wearing a white babygro and had been drawn before we even found out she was princess. I’d tried, and failed, to draw a new one but nothing quite lived up to the old one. …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #21/52 & #22/52

I am late with posting not one, but two My Sunday Photos. I had done nearly half a year being on time and then bang, it all goes to pot. So I am doing a little round up one for last week and this week and hope you’ll all forgive me. Sunday 22nd May – We had ummed and aaahhhed …

I’m Going To #BML16

It’s that time of the year where bloggers get all excited about the UKs biggest blogging and social media conference, BritMums Live or this year it’s known as #BML16. This year will be my third year attending although this will be the first where I have no baby in my belly or in my arms so I’m hoping that means I’ll …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #20/52

My days are consumed lately by my eldest daughter. I’ve been filling out forms for her referral for autism and generally her behaviour has been atrocious lately. It’s like she’s a stroppy teenager times one hundred already and it’s tiring. She wakes up moody and spends the day looking glum or angry, then goes to bed in a hyper state …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #19/52

Each month we have one night and two nearly full days when there’s just P3 to look after as the other two go to my parents in Essex. Occasionally we arrange for P3 to spend a few hours with her Nannie but more often than not we have two days to focus on P3. Things always feel so incredibly strange on …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #18/52

We haven’t done a massive food shop in such a long time. We seem to have got into the habit of just going to our local supermarket for meals for that day or the next few days. Which was working fine but with our recent holiday the food cupboards had got quite bare. The kids were demanding food constantly and …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #17/52

Once again a bit of a different My Sunday Photo as I am away from home. We are currently enjoying a lovely weekend at Waterloo Farm Holidays in Cornwall in the most scenic place I have ever been in. In fact I am currently sitting at the dining table with the patio doors open wide feeling the warm sun on …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #16/52

This weekend has been a bit of a wash out. It’s the first weekend that we’ve had a fully fixed and working car since the beginning of March. We had plans to go for the evening swim we’d agreed to do every two weeks but only ever managed to do it once because of the car. Saturday morning we’d agreed …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #15/52

I nearly forgot about My Sunday Photo. This weekend has been very laid back and it’s been so nice. P1 and P2 have been in Essex with my Mum for their monthly sleepover and so we’ve been left with just one little lady to look after. I always find it so much easier and calmer with just the one. Going …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #14/52

Please accept my apologies for the late posting and the different styled featured post for this weeks My Sunday Photo. I am staying at my Grandad’s for a few nights with the girls and I haven’t been able to get my internet working on the laptop which is highly frustrating. It’s the first time I’ve slept over his house since …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #13/52 Easter Sunday

Just a quick one for this weeks My Sunday Photo. It’s Easter Sunday!! We have been really getting into the spirit of Easter and this photo from last week shows that. The girls have had one egg each and this year was the first year of a Easter Basket which we’d filled with lots of craft goodies. It just feels …

Do You Really Need A TV License?

I think the simple answer to this question depends on your watching habits. For us, we have absolutely no reason to have a TV license. I remember a time when just by owning a TV meant you were legally required to purchase a TV license. But those days are long gone. The rules are, if you watch live tv or …
