Splashing Around With BABY Born My First Swim Girl

My youngest daughter has a big obsession with dolls. I genuinely thought that she may outgrow this phase as she got older but her love is stronger than ever. At times I feel like I’m being followed by eyes, we have that many lying around the house! The latest in her collection arrived a few weeks ago, the BABY Born …

Anyway, another sibling post is here! I’m struggling to find things to update you on if I’m honest and I’m sure as the weeks …

Easter Sunday 2020

I am trying my very best to document our lives during this uncertain time. All of these moments will be part of our history and things we will talk about for centuries to come. Easter Sunday was very different to how we usually spend it. We usually go to church in the morning to celebrate the rising of Christ, that’s …

Lockdown Diaries Week 4 (6th-12th April 2020)

We definitely got in the swing of being at home. It was the Easter holidays so it was nice to take a slower pace and not worry about home school. I was definitely very grateful for my mother-in-law who dropped us off with everything we’d need for an Easter hunt. It had sort of crept up on me, will always …

Two Weeks In Isolation

It’s the 30th March, which is exactly two weeks since I picked up my girls up from school for the last time. At the time I wasn’t 100% sure it would be the last so I didn’t really cherish it like it was. Fourteen days has actually sped past. I think I’ve thrown my mind into preparing their virtual school …

Home Is Where The Heart Is

Part of me didn’t want to sit and write up this post. Everybody is going through the same thing right now so why would anyone want to read about it? Then I remembered the reason I started this blog seven years ago. It was a place to document my life, my thoughts, and my experiences.  So of course, I should …

Lockdown Diaries Week 3 (30th Mar-5th April 2020)

Those early weeks of being isolated was a weird time. I enjoyed a slower-paced life, yet felt so much sadness about the life we used to have. It was like grieving for a loss.  We managed to get into the swing of lockdown life and here are the pictures from our third week of isolation.

Hubby’s 30th Birthday

As a pair, Hubby and I are notorious for being pretty lame at celebrating birthdays. For us, it always feels like any other day of the week and nothing too special. Today, it’s Hubby’s 30th birthday. It’s a big milestone that I wanted to make special for him to remember forever. I wanted to put in the effort that our …

Siblings 2020 – March

What a month for everyone on Earth, right? I don’t think I ever expected to be writing a sibling post quite like this one. Our lives, everyone’s lives, have quite utterly been tipped upside down and given a bit of a shake in the process of coronavirus hitting. I truly hope you are all keeping as well as can be …

Lockdown Diaries Week 2 (23rd-29th March 2020)

It’s so much fun looking back on the photos from the early weeks of lockdown. It already seems like such a long time ago yet like it only happened yesterday. The second week of lockdown for us was all about trying to get into a routine of virtual home learning and surviving being stuck in our home. Here are the …

There are six flavours in their range which we were excited to try. 330ml Milkshakes We had been sent one of each flavour of …

Lockdown Diaries Week 1 (17th-22nd March 2020)

For the entire duration of this global pandemic, I have been sending my Grandad and Hubby’s Grandparents a PDF document called Isolation Diaries. Somehow I have managed to keep up to date with them weekly and they’ve been received gratefully. It dawned on me that I’d quite like to keep a document of all the things we got up to …

Getting Back In The Saddle

On her fourth birthday Eva started horse riding for the first time. She took to it like a duck to water, it felt very nostalgic as I used to ride when I was younger. I think she rode weekly-ish for about 18 months before we made the decision to take a break. It was always meant to be a break, …

Potato Characters For World Book Day 2020

One of my favourite things during the school year is World Book Day. This has probably stemmed from my love of books but also over the past few years, seeing my girls getting excited and planning their costumes. So you may wonder why on earth I have a photo featuring potatoes? This year, the girls’ school have a voluntary competition …
