Siblings 2019 – April

Gosh what a busy April we have had! It was pretty much full of school holidays – Elsa had three weeks off, Freya and Eva had two. So we had plenty of time for family fun. April was a really good month for Freya. She seems much more settled in herself at the moment and I think there’s a few …

Family Day Out To Chatsworth House

I’ve been pretty excited to get this post written and share it with you. Going to Chatsworth House was a bit of a “let’s see how it goes with the kids in tow” kind of day, where we expected moaning children. I could not have been more wrong, so here comes our experience of Chatsworth House. Chatsworth House is about …

Finding Our Perfect Mattress With Dreams Sleepmatch Technology

I definitely wouldn’t be able to count how many times I’ve had a little moan about my sleep patterns and I am sure I am not alone. Eva and Elsa specifically have loved giving me many sleepless nights. As they’ve got older, their sleep has significantly started improving yet I have still felt so exhausted. Did you know that it …

Blown Away At Heights Of Abraham

I love mornings when we are on holiday. It’s just the best feeling to be less hectic and needing to be somewhere at exactly the right time. Staying at Pinelodge Holidays Darwin Forest allowed us to still feel like that even though we had lots planned to visit. On the Wednesday, and half way through our holiday in the Peak …

The Friendliest Animals At Matlock Farm Park

We all slept pretty well on our first night. I owe that to the darkness and quietness of Pinelodge Holidays Darwin Forest. Elsa did wake up screaming at 5am but that was due to being terrified and unable to see. Other than that, we all woke at nearly 8am! We had a simple breakfast of cereals followed by a really relaxing …

Travelling 5 Hours To The Peak District

It’s a little daunting deciding to pop your kids in a car and travel for nearly five hours. It could be a recipe for disaster but that’s exactly what we did over the Easter holidays. We had been excitedly invited to stay with Pinelodge Holidays Darwin Forest for the week. I promised myself that we wouldn’t overpack for this trip, …

Family Holiday To Pinelodge Holidays Darwin Forest

Back in the summer last year we headed to BBC Countryfile Live for the first time. Whilst there we enjoyed scorching weather and the opportunity to chat to lots of different brands. A few months later we were kindly offered the chance to head to the Peak District and stay with Pinelodge Holidays. This post is a dedicated review of …

Siblings 2019 – March

It suddenly dawned on me that I hadn’t posted my March siblings post. I think it’s because our lives have got very busy, we’re planning something super exciting as a big surprise, and we’ve been on two consecutive press trips (blog posts coming soon) so everything else has definitely been taking a bit of a back seat. Freya has been …

New Rainforest Carousel At Drusillas Park

Last weekend my family and I was invited along to the launch of the new Rainforest Carousel at Drusillas Park. We had never been to Drusillas as a family and the girls were very excited for a brand new adventure. Drusillas is in East Sussex, very close to the South coast. It was really simple to get to and we …

Top Tips For Swimming As A Family

Swimming is one of the skills that I see as super important for every child to learn. With Freya, my eldest, I was taking part in mother and baby lessons as soon as we could but with the other two learning to swim was much more of a family activity. Getting active on a regular basis can add years to …

My 26th & Her 4th Birthday Celebrations

When it comes to documenting our personal moments, I’ve become a bit slow. In fact with regards to this one I’ve been six months slow! Back in September Elsa and I celebrated our birthdays, I took photos and videos and completely forgot to share the milestones over here. So here I am, in March, many months after the events to …

Captain Fantastic Premium Princess Party

Every year ever since she was able to speak our second little princess, Eva, has begged us for a party. It’s sort of been a tradition that we’ve just had family over on birthdays and done a little family day out. But this year we finally gave in. The girls have had quite a lot to cope with over the …

World Book Day 2019

It’s a quick one from me today. A chance for me to document one of my favourite celebrations. Celebrating books! Ok I don’t enjoy the needing to get costumes sorted especially for three daughters now, but I love the chance to remember how amazing books are and the importance of reading. What did you dress up as to celebrate your …

Daughter Has Her Autism Assessment

As I’m writing this it’s Monday 28th January. It’s very late and my eyes are stinging from exhaustion. It’s been a long, emotional day. For many years I have believed that my eldest daughter, Freya, has autism or is autistic. For over half of her life I have been begging the paediatricians to assess her but with school reports and …
