“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 …

My Sunday Photo – 27/09/2015

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 …

My Sunday Photo – 13/09/2015

This weeks My Sunday Photo is a photo from my iPhone. It was taken last night in the pitch black so the quality is absolutely awful and I’ll apologise for that as I try to take pride in my blog showcasing high quality images. I didn’t even take this photo myself, one of my lovely friends did. Last night, when …

My Sunday Photo – 06/09/2015

We haven’t got P1 and P2 this weekend. It’s their usual monthly sleepover with their Grandparents in Essex. I always plan to get on top of blogging related things as having one should be much easier than three but it never works this way. Ever. In fact P3 becomes a voice that makes up for the missing two. She becomes …

My Sunday Photo – 30/08/2015

We headed back to Essex yesterday and I will blog about that soon because I have so many photos to share from that day. This week my sunday photo is of P1. P1 is so hard to photograph lately, she’s actually really into photography and points out “great photo” opportunities and she loves to pose but she has trouble actually …

My Birthday Wishlist

The other day I actually had to work out how old I’m going to be this year. I seriously couldn’t remember which is quite embarrassing. I’m going to be 23. Each year I put together a little wish list of things I’d love to have, of course some of the things on my list are completely unrealistic but it’s worth …

My Sunday Photo – 23/08/2015

We don’t have a garden. Our little bit of outdoor space is a shared access way between our house and our outbuilding. This summer I’ve actually been brave enough to start using it. Our landlord put up a shelter a few months ago and it’s been great. It gives the feeling of having a conservatory and therefore we have started …

My Sunday Photo – 16/08/2015

One of my new friends over here in Sevenoaks invited me to her daughter’s Christening. I felt so honoured to receive an invite to not only the ceremony but the little lunch afterwards. A couple of weeks before the Christening my friend asked if I could take a couple of photos of her family for her on the day which …
