Poppy Field

We love being outside, bicycle rides along the seaside promenade, building sand castles on the beach, stumbling through woodlands, exploring new towns…we are a outdoorsy family. I love taking photographs, I’ve always loved the art of a camera. I took some pictures of our stroll through the fields the other day, the surroundings were beautiful, … More Poppy Field

Disneyland Paris

We visited Disneyland Paris for a day with three children aged four and under. Life has been super busy over here, it’s taken me a month to get round to writing this! Firstly, my husband and I have never been to Disneyland, it’s never appealed to us. The queuing, the waiting, the frustrated crying children, … More Disneyland Paris

Happy Siblings Day!

Today is National Siblings Day. I thought I’d come on here and share a few things that we (the parents) have noticed that our little ones love about one another. T T, our eldest is loving that his younger sister can now play imaginative small world with him, he brings her toys and tells her … More Happy Siblings Day!

The Last Nappy

Last week on Thursday morning our middle one, E, refused to let us put a nappy on her after a shower. She went in to her draw and got some knickers out, put them on and stood there glaring at us. “I’m not wearing a nappy anymore, I’m wearing knickers!” From then on, there has … More The Last Nappy

The Boys

Today, I think, was the first time I’ve had just the boys on their own. It’s usually the youngest two that get time together without their sibling, but the middle baby ordered her auntie to take her out for the afternoon. All three of my children look similar, but my middle baby does look more … More The Boys

Egg-tastic Dying

This was something completely new to me. I’ve painted Easter Eggs before, but never have I dyed them, but consider me now egg-ucated. I used the Okonorm Egg Dying Kit which only cost me £3.95 and came with five coloured sachets, red, green, orange, pink and yellow. The colours are all natural and gluten-free. Here’s how … More Egg-tastic Dying

Snow Day

We had little flurries of snow yesterday, but today we woke up to a sheet of snow over our little bit of England. For most reading this, you’ve probably already had snow and I’m really late to the party. But in fact we haven’t had snow that’s laid for 5 years! So you can imagine … More Snow Day

Half Term

Technically this was our first proper half term, with T being at school now. For all of us it was a much needed break, T was feeling overwhelmed by school, E was missing her older brother and wishing she was at school with him and our youngest, A, was feeling under the weather and just … More Half Term

Deciding on School

Our eldest started school this week and we’ve all found it more difficult than we thought we would have. The plan was for him to start reception this coming September. You see, he’s a summer born baby and last year the Government put in writing that summer born children (children born after April 1st) were … More Deciding on School
