“We survived the hottest day of the year!”

Yesterday, 1st July 2015, marked the hottest July day in the UK so far. Temperatures soared to 36.7C in many parts of the UK. I checked my weather app regularly and the highest we saw in Kent was 34C. A crazy, dangerous temperature but I’m pleased to announce that we survived the hottest day of the year. As I’ve said …

Doona Review – The Older Baby

Lately, as I’ve been watching my chubby munchkin grow and thrive I have been wondering how we are going to cope without our Doona. I’m sure that she has plenty of time left in the Doona seeing as it’s weight limit is 13kg and P2 has only just hit that herself but the Doona has become a staple part of …

What We Are Reading

Reading is so important to me through blogging and through my writing but it’s also something I want my children to enjoy and so far they all love books. P1 has started to read her own stories or at least give them a good go. P2 has finally started to sit still for a full story and P3 loves to …

Kids Fun At Home with I MUNE NURTURE

We’ve been experiencing some pretty awful behaviour with P1 lately. I’ve been doing a lot of research about it because I desperately want to help her to control and understand her emotions as well as understand them myself. This weekend I’ve especially been changing the things we do. Normally we like to use the weekend to recooperate after a busy …

Shmuncki Liberty Art Fabric Babygrow & Jacket Review

This time last week I was packing for BritMums Live and heading to London. P3 was kindly sent the Liberty Art Fabric Baby Girl Jacket and the Liberty Art Fabric Baby girl babygrow romper to wear whilst at BritMums Live. This made trying to find an outfit for her so much easier. She ended up being sent three lovely outfits …

Queen Of Hearts Cookie Company Review

I am really trying my best to cut my meal portions and stop snacking as much as I used to in a bid to lose the extra weight I’m carrying but also to be healthier inside. When the Queen Of Hearts Cookie Company contacted me to review some biscuits for them I was actually really excited. It was just before …

Letter To My Princess 1 – 6 Years 6 Months

To my Princess 1, I’ve been really disappointed with your behaviour lately. To the point we’ve been to see the doctors because I know this just isn’t normal behaviour for a 6 year old. We have a few next steps and I hope that you are just in a very awful stage at the moment. You’ve been so doting on …

“There’s now no need to wrap our toddler in bubble wrap”

When P3 was born P2 went from a tiny toddler snuggled in my arms to this huge giant of a child. Since turning two she’s changed so much that it’s really scaring me. She’s no longer a baby in any sense and has become such a grown up and independent little sausage. The things she says are just immensely amusing. …

Fitbit Flex Review

When I started my weight loss journey I was a bit of a virgin to anything health related and I certainly wasn’t bothered by how many steps I took each day. Gradually I’ve watched my weight slowly come down and I’ve been feeling far more energised recently. I’ve been wearing a Fitbit Flex for nearly two months now and I …

My Experience of BritMums Live 2015

If you are in the blogging community, attended BritMums Live or like (god forbid) Best Buggy UK on Facebook then you will already know what I’m about to talk about. For those lucky ones who are blissfully unaware, on returning home from BritMums Live 2015 on Saturday it was made aware to me that I, along with a few other …

Citadines Holborn-Covent Garden Review

We are certainly not strangers to staying in hotels and this year already has seen us spend a few nights in a hotel. Hubby, P3 and I stayed at the Citadines Holborn-Covent Garden Apart Hotel in London on Friday night for BritMums Live which was held at The Brewery not far from the Citadines Holborn-Covent Garden Apart Hotel. We were …

Gymboree Sevenoaks Review

Getting out and about is so important to me at the moment but as I no longer have a car that I am able to drive (hubby’s car is manual and I possess an Automatic License) I find myself a little stuck with options. I am thankful that we have two stay and plays within walking distance from our house …

Siblings June 2015

So it turns out that the 15th has really creapt up on me. When I decided to religiously join in with this linky I wanted to have a dozen photos to look at come December that I could one day make into a canvas of some sort. As much as I love natural photos of my girls, I have come …

She’s Crawling

P3 is crawling. Well not particularly getting from A to B but she’s certainly getting there. This development has happened earlier than both her sisters. P1 crawled for the first time around her birthday and P2 crawled at 9 months 2 days old. P3 is 8 months 2 weeks old. I don’t remember the ins and outs of P1s crawling …
