Spending Time With My Girls

It’s been a weird day. One I want to cherish forever but also one that could quite happily be brushed under the doormat. My eyes opened to the usual cries for “Mummy” from one possibly two of the girls. It’s Sunday so I ushered both P2 and P3 into my bed, shoving Hubby further towards the wall so we could …

Why Did I Go To My 4th #BML17 Blogging Conference?

If you are not part of the blogging world then you probably don’t know that there are conferences for bloggers. The parenting world of blogging alone has quite a few to offer but when I first started blogging nearly five years ago, BritMums Live seemed to be where all the action was at. Each year sort of had a different …

My Feelings On Our Last Night At Home

I am writing this sat on the end of P3s bed. There’s the sound of snoring and a sense of peace finally. It’s been a long weekend of lots of tears, tantrums and shouting. We have boxes piled up everywhere ready to throw our entire life into a van and unpack it the other side to start a fresh adventure. …

Hello autumnal weather. Sporadic down pours of rain and darkened days at home. My girls are struggling with the adjustments to staying indoors a little more.

Last Summer Sunday At Penshurst Place

I felt a lot of guilt and a lot of excitement all at once about our visit to Penshurst Place for their last Summer Sunday event of the summer.

Her First Day At Preschool

I have read so many posts in the past week about parents feeling emotional about their children starting school. I’ve never been able to relate to that feeling, I’ve never really felt that emotional attachment to my children, the sentimental need to keep drawings. In fact I thought I had something wrong with me until today. I had little sleep …

You Are In Year 4

Over the past year or so we have been watching a brand new building arise from the old school playground. Each week something would change about it; bigger, the roof put on, windows going in, outer panelling on, new playgrounds created and then finally it was finished before the end of the last school year. The school was moved from …

I have been waiting for this day for such a long time. I was awake so early, getting organised, putting my makeup on and my clothes. Typically P2 and P3 didn’t wake until quarter to eight, like really?! Why didn’t they do this in the holidays?! Somehow we still managed to be a little rushed out of the door. So …

On this day four years ago my biggest baby, P1, started her primary school education back in Essex. That day holds so many precious memories. I’d dropped P1 off at school on time, not knowing anybody as we had been through an appeals process and subsequently missed any taster sessions they had. I needed to return back to the school …

Back To School Dramas Sorted With Kickers!

Our beloved older daughter kindly reminded us a few days ago, with less than a week left until school begins, that her current school shoes were too tight for her. We’d been so consumed by the fact P2 was starting big school for the first time that we’d neglected the fact we had another one who was going up a …

IOW 2017 Day 3 – Model Village, Tapnell Farm & The Cow Co.

I woke up earlier than the day before. I decided to have a shower and whilst I was half way through shaving my legs, the fire alarm went off. This woke Hubby is a shock and he leaped out of bed to press the button. He ended up pressing it about ten times but it kept coming back on. So …

Our Potty Training Update – 3 Months In

We officially started our potty training journey with P3 at the end of April. We received our amazing hamper of goodies from HUGGIES® Pull-Ups® to help us and from then on it was full steam ahead.
