Too Many Clubs

Just a quick little post from me today. With back to school in full swing now I wanted to share a video I filmed a few weeks ago all about the clubs my girls do. I remember seeing one of those car signs you pop in the window like “baby on board” and it said “mums taxi” well my life …

Letter To My Daughter Moving School

To Princess 1, Please know that I am doing this for good intentions. I have your best interests at heart even if it may not feel that way to you right now. Moving your school so late in this journey is terrifying for all of us. Daddy and Mummy have spent so many days and nights talking, restless sleep worrying …

How To Make The Most Out Of The School Run

The school run in the morning can be a tough time for everyone involved. It’s early, hectic and there is a high possibility something is going to be forgotten at home – whether it’s a piece of homework, a PE kit or a packed lunch. All of these stresses aside, these mornings can be valuable time you get to spend …

Our Scrapbook Summer Holidays 2018 – Week 3

Behind the scenes I am mentally exhausted. I have so many blog posts in the line up whether they be collaborative content or personal ones from the summer holidays. I’ve taken so many photos and filmed so many clips. I’m drowning a little bit. It’s becoming quite a struggle to balance having a great time, keeping up with housework and …

A Summer Family BBQ Social

I should probably start by pointing out that this little afternoon adventure happened right at the beginning of July. I’ve been really struggling to keep up with life and blog stuff as the end of the school year approached. Our lives were just manic!

The End Of The School Year & Teacher Gift Ideas With Petit-Fernand

If you are anything like me then you’ve been living in a sort of denial about the end of the school year so quickly approaching. I hadn’t really realised that it was the last term if I’m honest. This year honestly is going so incredibly fast. It was a big year for us with P2 starting big school and P3 …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Hating On The Snow This Weekend

On Friday we experienced a short lived snippet of what the spring and summer will look like for my family. It was warm enough to sit outside with no coats on. Yet this weekend we have been graced with more snow. Usually I’d be jumping for joy about the white flakes falling from the sky. Willing it, pleading it to …

Is It Lucky To Have Child Free Time?

I hear it so often when I tell people I’m child free and that we get to have this once a month for an entire weekend. “You’re so lucky!” But is it luck really? And is that luck mine or the kids? If you are new to my blog, I am a mum of three girls. I had my first …

Special Needs Diary #14 – Autism Assessment & Orthopaedic Shoes

It already feels like that snowy, winter wonderland we had last week was such a long time ago doesn’t it?! I keep looking at my photos wishing I’d taken more. It was just such a beautiful week. However, for us it also was a pretty awful week for P1. Change effects her hugely as you will know if you’ve followed …

5 Reasons Why I Love My Daughter’s Preschool Nursery

P1 went to a day nursery back when we lived in Essex, P2 went to preschool although it was called a nursery and P3 now goes to the same one. I hope this post maybe gives you an insight when you decide to …

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 …

You Never Think It Will Be Your Child

Bullying is something that happens in every school. It’s a part of learning boundaries, personality clashes and bad behaviour. As a parent you hope that your child will never be bullied, that they are kind to everyone and that you never have to be called in to the Head Teacher because of an incident involving your child and someone else’s. …

Going To The Park With Bassetts Multivitamins #nodulldays

During the summer it is easy to get out and about with our children. The warm weather makes us want to be out in it exploring and going on adventures. As autumn sets in, the days get colder and the sun setting earlier gives us shorter daylight hours, getting outside becomes much more of a chore. The Department Of Health …
