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 …

Living My Best Life Through The Mini Heatwave

(This blog post was meant to have gone live back in May… It missed it’s schedule ooops!!) Were currently in a patch of spring showers as I’m writing this so it feels a bit weird to be documenting the amazing weather we had not long ago. I bang on about it all of the time here and on my social …

Strawberry Picking & Father’s Day

We are definitely not a family that makes a big deal of things like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. For us, it’s just like any other day with chores and mouths to feed. But for some reason this Father’s Day was so much better than previous ones. Two of the girls had made bits for Hubby at school. …

Siblings 2018 – June

This month has been full of adventures. We have been having unstoppable fun over here that I’ve been a little overwhelmed. Specifically over half term when we literally had so many days out that everything else was given a bit of a back seat.  As they are growing older, my girls are becoming much easier to look after on days …

Perfect Summers Day

I spend a lot of the cooler months hiding away, refusing to go out and embrace our British weather but when the sun comes out, ready to warm us all up, I come out of my shell. The summer is my season. Already, even though it’s not technically summer yet, we have been filling our days with outdoor adventures. Even …

Cooling Down In Eynsford Ford

Monday already feels like such a long time ago now. I’m already reminiscing about the sunshine seeing as we’ve had storms and heavy rain for a full day. But I will take you back to Bank Holiday Monday when the weather was gloriously hot and the sun was out. We wanted to do something with the girls but wasn’t really …

Our Royal Wedding Celebrations!

Six years ago next month, I experienced my first ever street party with my soon to be mother-in-law. It was in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. I was secretly pregnant with P2 and feeling quite worse for wear if I remember but I was able to feel this huge community spirit. The views, the location and just everything about …

Siblings 2018 – May

We have been able to get outside this month, with temperatures reaching nearly 30 degrees. We’ve focused on getting the garden ready for our girls and we are nearly at a state where we are comfortable with it. Having our new Dunster House climbing frame has allowed the girls to bond so much. Mainly P2 and P3 have been out …

Our Bank Holiday Weekend

I hadn’t even realised it was Bank Holiday weekend until someone reminded me there was no school on Monday. The girls were due to spend the weekend with my Mum in Essex, I hadn’t realised it was going to be a long weekend. Hubby and I met my Mum half way, at Ikea Thurrock. After saying our goodbyes to the …

My First Proper Experience Of Chickenpox

As you’ve probably guessed by the title, this post is all about Chickenpox. I have wanted my girls to catch the highly contagious disease since they were very younger, like under a year if I’m honest. That may make me seem mean but I just wanted it over and done with. P1 supposedly caught it when she was about two …

Siblings 2018 – April

I have managed to capture lots of sibling moments this month, mainly from our holiday to the Isle Of Wight, but I am leaving those images for my diary posts that will all be going live very soon. These photos are from a little earlier on in the month. We have been doing so much more in the past month as …

Getting Through the First Day of School

Your child’s first day of school can be emotional for the both of you. If they’ve been at home for the first two or three years of their life, the idea of them going out and living their own life at nursery for a few hours a day can be a hard pill to swallow. As a parent, you can’t …

When Will Winter & Spring Finish Their Arguing?

Seriously Spring time, grow some balls and kick this Winter away sooner rather than later. So in case you are not living in the UK, we are currently living in an icy, snowy, winter wonderland yet again. It’s hard to believe that the photos in this blog post were taken on Friday. On Friday, I found myself outside without my …

Siblings 2018 – March

What an extremely odd month we have had. We were teased with a nice warm weekend, with sunshine and flowers sprouting up everywhere. A tiny glimmer of hope to the Spring and Summer being well on its way, then out of nowhere the Beast From The East hit and covered the UK in thick snow! I haven’t actually taken many …

Is It Lucky To Have Child Free Time?

I hear it so often when I tell people I’m child free and that we get to have this once a month for an entire weekend. “You’re so lucky!” But is it luck really? And is that luck mine or the kids? If you are new to my blog, I am a mum of three girls. I had my first …
