Share Your Year – Our 2015

2015 is very nearly at an end and it’s time to reflect on the year that has gone past. I honestly don’t think that 2015 was an overly bad year for us so I’m going to reflect in 3 month sections. I’m linking up with Lauren at Belle Du Brighton who gave me this idea. January, February, March I kick …

An Update On Vlogmas 2015

It’s been over two weeks since I started recording VLOGMAS videos for my YouTube Channel and I’ve included the playlist where it scrolls through my videos in order in case you haven’t seen them yet. I decided to join in with VLOGMAS to challenge myself and it really has been quite a task. I’m not sure it’s the filming that has …

My Christmas Wish List 2015

I have been putting off my Christmas list this year because I have already told anyone who has asked the things I’d really like, a duvet set and clothes mainly, so there didn’t seem a need to write a post. But I’ve been reading other wish lists and gift guides and have seen a few things that I’d love to …

#BEDN – 5 – Fireworks Night

Tonight is Fireworks Night. Usually I would try and find a local display for us to go to, especially as the girls really loved the one at our local park recently but this year is a little different and we’ve actually just got back from a date night! My MiL had bought us tickets for a comedy night at the theatre …

#BEDN – 4 – Photography

It’s really crazy to think how far photography has come, especially very recently. From when I was a child there are plenty of very blurry, low lighting and low quality images of me. The photos are mainly of big events or birthdays taken on a camera that got dusted off for these momentous occasions. Go from back then to nearly …

#BEDN – 1 – Something New About Yourself

It’s really crazy that we are now in November. I haven’t thought much about getting prepared for Christmas but it’s actually approaching at a rapid speed. This month I have decided to join in with the Blog Every Day in November (BEDN) blogging challenge. It’s meant to be fun and I only decided to do a few days ago so I’ve …

“I think the duty I hate the most is having to be nurse”

Parenting is a mixture of every job under the sun. It’s about being a chef, a taxi, a teacher, an actor, a body guard, a cleaner, a friend and an enemy. But I think the duty I hate the most is having to be nurse. It feels like we are currently in a never ending cycle of illness. Those germs …

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 …

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 …

“One lady behind me is holding an oxygen mask over my face”

The toast popped up from the toaster, slightly burnt around the edges as usual. I cover it in a light layering of chocolate spread then stare at it. My tummy is rumbling but I don’t feel hungry, I feel nervous and sick. I force myself to eat regardless as today is my operation day and I’m not allowed to eat …

My Sunday Photo – 04/10/2015

Last Sunday I was waking up, granted it was super early, in a huge king sized bed with the sounds of birds singing. Fields and trees as our view. This morning I’ve had a full night of cosleeping with P3, I can hear cars and see buildings. I’m feeling grumpy today. Agitated. It’s through lack of sleep and I’ve only …

It’s my birthday tomorrow. Our 2nd year wedding anniversary. We are currently having a mini break. As I type this up, it’s actually Saturday evening, P3 is upstairs in her own bedroom fast asleep and the other two are downstairs playing in their bedroom. I’m. actually here to review so I won’t say too much just yet but Gladwin’s Farm …

“I hate Autumn!”

The weather seems to get blamed for quite a few things. This time I’m blaming it for my lack of mojo to blog. It also seems I’m not alone in my missing inspiration as a few other bloggers have recently declared a dry patch, ironically seeing as the weather certainly isn’t dry! We are only a few weeks into Autumn …
