Welcoming Two New Boys To Our Family

On Monday the 10th of April my Mum’s Guinea-Pig gave birth to three little babies. My Mum is clearly losing her veterinary nurse experience as she was sure there would be just one baby. My girls had actually been staying with their grandparents that weekend and were excited that Hermione (mummy guinea) was literally ready to pop. But alas, she …

Siblings 2017 – May

Is anyone else getting super annoyed by the ever changing weather? I know we are in England and it’s expected but my golly I don’t know whether I am coming or going. I never know whether to pack winter coats or dress them in summer dresses. P2 especially has wanted to wear her sandals even when it is raining. This …

Primary School Places The Second Time Round

On the 1st November last year I submitted an application for a Primary School place for P2. This was the first day that the application process was open and we already knew which three schools we would be putting down so it was pointless to wait. Applying this time, a second time, felt different. We didn’t view any schools or …

Mother & Daughter Horse Riding

It has been just over two months since my middle daughter had her very first horse riding lesson. We made the decision for her to continue horse riding. She took to it like duck to water and we wanted to focus on this skill we feel she has. Each time I have watched her grow in confidence and it’s been …

Siblings 2017 – April

We’ve made it to the end of the Easter holidays. Two full weeks of having my girls at home and with another one more with two of them. It’s been nice not having early mornings and routines, I used to hate the school holidays but I really relish the more relaxed vibe. The weather has even been relatively kind to …

Three Girls Sharing One Room With Room Tour Videos

We moved to Kent nearly four years ago when we were a family of four. P1 was four years old and P2 just six months. At the time I was desperate to get out of Essex and we viewed a few houses. We picked our current home as we loved the modern feel and it was closest to the new …

A Weekend Of Fun For Hubby’s 27th Birthday

The weekend before last saw my husband celebrate his 27th birthday. Due to the fact that we tell each other absolutely everything, I didn’t have any surprises up my sleeves for him. In fact he made our weekend plans and I am so glad he did because he found such a wonderful place to visit. Swanley New Barn Railway has …

Mother’s Day 2017

I totally realise that I am super behind on publishing this. But I felt like I couldn’t just ignore Mother’s Day like it never happened because it did. I had a relatively normal Mother’s Day, normal in the sense that it fell on a Sunday, I lost an hour of sleep and my middle daughter woke me several times in …

A Country Walk At Lullingstone

I am so incredibly pleased that we have seen the back of winter now. Although saying that it still seems super freezing outside doesn’t it?! A week or so ago, we were graced with some sunshine and it finally felt bright and summery. (The photo above is courtesy of my aspiring four year old photographer – P2!) We decided to …

Going To The Library

It feels like such a long time ago since reading a story at bedtime felt like a chore. I never used to see the importance of books despite my own love for reading and writing. But I also experienced mum guilt surrounding the topic of bedtime story time and eventually I made it part of our routine. I don’t feel …

Forest School For Toddlers

Meterologically Spring has started. I can’t tell you just how happy I am to see the back of winter. I’ve been a proper recluse in terms of our outdoor adventures. I’ve avoided the park, we’ve not really been to any National Trust places and I’ve definitely preferred the comfort of my home and my joggers. But with Spring, comes the …

Siblings 2017 – March

We’ve finally been busier this month and with the weather warming up on the most part, I’ve had an enjoyable month. The girls are getting more opportunities to bond with each other which is always welcome. We’ve had a few travel opportunities too. I’ve picked some of my favourite photos for this month. P1 is loving starting her new taekwon-do …

Taking My Four Year Old To Clubs

When P2 was around two years old I began to have worries about her confidence. She was extremely attached to Hubby and me when we ventured out and would rarely leave our sides. She took about three months to stop crying every morning nursery drop off. But then something changed her. It was like a switch was flipped and P2 …

Win A Family Ticket To Marsh Farm’s Easter Eggstravaganza 2017

I didn’t realise my love for Easter until we went to Marsh Farm last year for their Easter Egg Hunt. I had decided to stay with my Grandad for the weekend without Hubby and wanted to find somewhere to go. Marsh Farm was a childhood place for me to visit and I really wanted my girls to experience the farm …

We Lost Our February To A Chest Infection

I say it a lot but I really hate winter and cooler weather. It brings with it all the brilliant germs that seem to hang around for a while. In fact this time we lost an entire month to the nasty buggers. It started at the very end of January which feels like a life time ago now. P1 began …
