Siblings 2018 – February

With the weather still pretty pants we have been spending a lot of time indoors at the weekends. I’d love to say we’ve been embracing the colder, wet days but we just haven’t. The girls get miserable when they get cold so it’s not enjoyable to adventure too far away from home at the moment. We’ve had a bit of …

Her 5th Birthday

I had every intention of writing this post up much closer to her actual birthday. I can’t believe it was over a week ago now and that we have a five year old! P2’s birthday was a big deal for her, as each year goes by she seems more and more excited. This time we’d been counting down the days …

Reasons To Consider Taking Young Children On A Family Ski Holiday

There is nothing more satisfying than hearing your child squeal with delight. It’s even more exciting when the words that follow the squeal is “It’s snowing!”. I love snow, it’s about the only good thing about feeling frozen to my bones for months on end. There’s something just magical about seeing the white flakes dropping from the sky, settling and …

I’m Featured On Blogger Love

This year I want to dip my toe in the world of creating content for other blogs and not just my own. I have seen many other bloggers do this but have always been scared to approach anyone in case I wasn’t that interesting or my writing wasn’t good enough. Then I saw a fellow blogger, Emma from Em’s World, …

What I Read My Kids In A Week

A bit of a different post from me today. I wanted to share with you what we read in a week. When P1 was much younger I didn’t like reading at bedtime. Bedtime was always quite horrific in this house so reading became a treat thing, rather than a joyous and bonding experience. I have always loved books so I …

Letter To My Princesses 2 – 5 Years

To my Princess 2, It’s your fifth birthday today and I think I’m in slight denial about it. I had picked some nice posed photos of you smiling innocently, but actually these photos speak more about your personality. This past year you have grown in personality. Big changes happened where you went from being a little nursery go-er to a …

5 Reasons Why I Love My Daughter’s Preschool Nursery

Picking a nursery, school or preschool is always a pretty daunting task when you are a parent.

I hope this post maybe gives you an insight when you decide to …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Daffodil Season

I walk to school or nursery every single day at least once, usually three times, and it’s a great way for me to start taking in my local area and noticing habits. Suddenly over the past week I have started to see shoots of little flowers emerging from their beds. For me, it’s a sign that Spring and warmer, longer …

Juggling A Special Needs Child With A Sibling At School Too

I actually drafted the title of this post a good few weeks ago, just after I had to juggle the need to be in two places at once for two different children of mine. But actually even more has happened since then. Since having two children in primary school and one in nursery, I have been really struggling to organise …
