Seeing The Grinch Movie With Friends

On Friday the 9th November the brand new Grinch movie was released to us in the UK. Eva and I were invited by a friend who works for the people behind the creation of The Grinch, to go and watch the film in London. It was technically a work do for them so we were very lucky. Forgetting my excitement …

My Goals For 2019

This year started rather oddly for us. Just like Christmas, we saw it just as our little family of five. In fact we were all in the car on the way back from a trip to Berlin, the girls all fast asleep as the clock struck midnight. 2018 was definitely a weird rollercoaster for our family. A lot of sadness …

Family Day Out To Colchester Zoo

When I come up with ideas for blog posts I usually save the title as a draft post. Ready for me to come back to at a later date or when I have time. With it being a new year, I thought I’d take a look at the many draft titles I’ve got and give them a bit of an …

Why I Am Now Using Their Names

Happy new year!! You may have noticed that in very recent blog posts I’ve started using my daughters names. I sort of wanted to explain why I’ve made that decision all of a sudden. Basically, the princess thing came about as a way to protect their identity. A way to keep them safe in this weird online world and community …

Letter To My Princess 1 – 10 Years Old

To my Princess 1, This has been a birthday that sort of terrified me. Ten years is such a huge milestone. Double digits, a whole decade and the final few years until you become a teenager. If I’m honest seeing you creep closer to ten has also made me feel very old. Your birthday also marks another thing, the amount …

A Mum & Daughter Day At The Ideal Home Show Christmas 2018

Christmas is by far my favourite time of the year but weirdly this year has felt the least Christmassy. In fact the whole idea of it has been making me feel anxious and a little sick. Don’t get me wrong it is still my favourite time of the year – I adore the magic! Back in November I saw that …

Siblings 2018 – December – Looking Back On A Year

So much can change in a month. Our biggest change which I want to talk about separately as soon as I can catch my breath from the Christmas chaos, is that Eva got a space in the new school that we had moved Freya too. It happened far quicker than we ever anticipated and we are obviously thrilled. Eva has …

Have We Finally Conquered The Milk Habit?

For anybody new here, it’s probably best that I explain the situation right from the beginning as quickly as I can. Eva and Elsa have had a milk addiction. I actually think it was more of a bottle addiction, to be honest I’m not entirely sure. Both bottles and milk went hand in hand. Basically, wherever we went we had …

Changing My Daughter’s Primary School

It’s been really hard to sit and write about this. I want to be fully transparent whilst also protecting our daughters too. When you talk about your child’s school online you could be putting them at risk so it’s hard to talk openly without being open. I hope you get what I mean. It was weird. This whole situation came …

Riding Her Bike For The First Time

Those first moments are so incredible as a parent. It’s so hard to explain but they just give you this warm fuzzy feeling you wish you could bottle and keep forever. I feel incredibly lucky that I chose to write about my life online. That I chose this way to document it all rather than in scrapbooks. I can look …
