“It sounds silly because shopping is such an ordinary thing”

Growing up I always spent time with my Grandparents. Just them and me. My Nan and my Grandad. We went to Scotland for holidays to visit my Grandad’s sister, we went to Somerset to visit Grandad’s friend on a farm he owned. I spent pretty much every afternoon after school with them. But now I rarely get quality time with …

Bedgebury Pinetum Stick Man Trail Adventure

I have been hibernating so far this winter. Spending most of my days in my joggers or pjs bottoms and doing my best to avoid unnecessary trips outside. Things are back to normal routines now and we are trying to do more things at the weekends this year. This Sunday we stepped completely out of our comfort zones and decided …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – 2/52

We did something out of our comfort zone today. We ventured out of the house in bad weather. The temptation, from a bad night of sleep, to just stay indoors for a lazy Sunday was so extreme but I didn’t cave. Instead I packed a lunch bag, we all wore double or even triple layers, the kids had rain all-in-ones …

“I don’t think I’ve felt true boredom for a long time”

Since the new year I have felt quite refreshed. My emails have been quiet, I’ve been writing and scheduling posts for days in advance, the house is relatively tidy with clothes washing up to date and put away. But the evening telly has been pretty rubbish and limited which has left me feeling rather bored. I don’t think I’ve felt …

“P1 is behaved at school and a crazy nightmare at home”

I’ve always loved the idea of home schooling. Having no early mornings for school runs and being able to spend time as a family doing the things we loved whilst educating and growing my daughters. But then we have school holidays, and they remind me exactly why I don’t and would never go down that route. There’s something wrong with …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – 1/52 

It’s the beginning of a new year. Obviously. I started to take part with the My Sunday Photo linky last year but gradually forgot. This year I’m starting new things with the hope to keep them up. Already I’ve spent 2016 knitting, eating better and feeling happier. Instead of a nice Sunday fry up breakfast as part of my healthier …

Fluffy American Pancakes Recipe

I am guilty of opening up a batter mix sachet that costs just 30p and making up a batch of pancakes or yorkshire puddings. Pancakes are P1s absolute favourite breakfast and seeing as I am actually really enjoying baking and cooking recently, I decided to give some American pancakes a go today. Here’s the recipe for these yummy star shaped …

Happy Birthday Life With Pink Princesses

I’m not a person to stick at things for long. Saving money goes out the window pretty quick, keeping the house clutter free was a bit longer lived but again it’s lacking, eating healthier and losing weight dwindled out. When I started my blog I was already blogging on a different platform and it was pretty awful. Like that blog …

My Goals For 2016

TUMTUM Bluebell Out & About Lunch Set Review & Competition

I am awful at forgetting to pack the girls snacks or food she we head out or for a short trip to the park. Then each and every time they moan that they’re hungry despite just having lunch. I never learn. I also think a contributing factor is that I’ve not had anywhere to store anything so when TUMTUM offered …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 15 Months

To my Princess 3, I really do think growing up suits you and it’s so scary to think you are already 15 months old! So far you are taking everything in your stride since learning to walk. You are so much fun now and unless you’re ill, you are such a joy to be around. You’re personality is absolutely hilarious. You …

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 …
