A Video Blog – My Second Birth Story

I am really enjoying making videos for my YouTube channel and although I am still a very, very tiny fish in the ocean YouTube, I still feel quite warm and fussy that my channel is getting views. I have a few videos over there that I haven’t yet shared here, like my Facts & Favourites vlog where I let you …

You’ll nearly walk the whole length way of our …

Why I Hate School Holidays

I always get so excited about school holidays. I’m a stay at home mum so I am lucky to be able to spend the holidays with my girls. I plan loads of things to do. Baking, painting, going to the park and swimming. But each and every school holiday we’ve ever experienced has gone far from to plan. I’ve been …

Letter To My Princess 2 – 2 Years 8 Months

To my Princess 2, I just want to apologise for writing this so late, you’re now heading towards being 2 years and 9 months, but life has been super busy and quite distracting. You’re doing really well at nursery. We had your report and you are above average on nearly everything which makes me so proud. Unfortunately, you still cry …

Siblings October 2015

I always get asked about my experience as a young mum but I never quite know how to really answer. To me this is all I’ve known. I hadn’t even left school when I embarked on the hardest job of my life, being a mum. I hadn’t known what getting in at all hours from clubbing, I hadn’t experienced girly …

A Video Blog – Our Week October 2015

Last Tuesday P2 and P3 were driving me nutty, we’d been indoors for a few days and my operation was getting closer which was making me feel super stressed. I decided whilst at the park to venture into vlogging. It has been something I’ve wanted to do for a while after being completely inspired by other bloggers who I read …

Tips For A 1st Birthday Cake Smash

I have absolutely no idea how to use Pinterest properly, or to my advantage, but when I saw a photo shared of a cake smash I immediately knew that was what I had to do for P3. For months I have been searching Pinterest for inspiration. I had this firm vision in my head of what I wanted it to …

Our New Family Car

We’ve been in Kent for just over two years now. Right at the very beginning I was wrapped up in the death of my Nan, unpacking our belongings, P1 starting a new school and P2 becoming more and more mobile. I didn’t get out and about very much to explore and so came the decision to sell my beautiful 2009 …

“I’ve known about it for a while and it’s nothing serious at all”

I read other blogs every day and recently I read this very inspiring one from Along Came Cherry and a specific paragraph really stayed with me: If my kids are playing up then there is always a reason, either something has upset them or something is going on with me. If I’m pre-occupied with some work that needs doing then they …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 1 Year

To my Princess 3, You dramatically entered our world the day after my birthday. I’d promised I wouldn’t share my birthday with not only my second anniversary and another birthday. You couldn’t breathe and were taken to special care. You are now one whole year old and continue to be our little drama Queen. Right at the start you were …

Siblings September 2015

All of my close friends have boys or at least one of each. I have girls. Three girls, three hair styles to create and at the moment three dresses. There’s going to be four sets of “the time of the month’s” and makeup, shoes and boyfriends. My girls really are very different to one another. P1 is slim, wobbly and …

“We took an obligatory first day at nursery photo”

P2 has been ready for nursery for a while and it feels like such a long time since we joined various waiting lists. I needed to give her more than I could offer. For her to build friendships and grow her independence and confidence.  To follow some structure as she learns more and more about the world she lives in. …

Being Busy & Thinking Ahead

We’ve successfully completed the first full week back to our school routine, although I’m still not quite used to the early mornings and I keep sleeping through the alarms that were switched off for six weeks leaving us pretty rushed every morning. Having a set routine seems to help P1s behaviour though and she’s been really good up until the …
