My Sunday Photo 2016 – #15/52

I nearly forgot about My Sunday Photo. This weekend has been very laid back and it’s been so nice. P1 and P2 have been in Essex with my Mum for their monthly sleepover and so we’ve been left with just one little lady to look after. I always find it so much easier and calmer with just the one. Going …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #14/52

Please accept my apologies for the late posting and the different styled featured post for this weeks My Sunday Photo. I am staying at my Grandad’s for a few nights with the girls and I haven’t been able to get my internet working on the laptop which is highly frustrating. It’s the first time I’ve slept over his house since …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #13/52 Easter Sunday

Just a quick one for this weeks My Sunday Photo. It’s Easter Sunday!! We have been really getting into the spirit of Easter and this photo from last week shows that. The girls have had one egg each and this year was the first year of a Easter Basket which we’d filled with lots of craft goodies. It just feels …

Do You Really Need A TV License?

I think the simple answer to this question depends on your watching habits. For us, we have absolutely no reason to have a TV license. I remember a time when just by owning a TV meant you were legally required to purchase a TV license. But those days are long gone. The rules are, if you watch live tv or …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #12/52

As you can guess by the lateness of my My Sunday Photo post, our Sunday has been pretty boring. Pretty much all day we have been relaxing with Netflix and gathering energy for the next few days of yet more walking to school. P1s day was probably the most exciting. She had a trampoline party to attend which she really …

A Letter To My Husband – Surviving 4 Years In A Relationship

To my Husband, We have been together for four years today. We’d been talking online for a long time before the day we met and it felt like I’d known you my lifetime already. Our very first proper date was a trip to a shopping centre. We were shopping for Mother’s Day for our mums. I bought a tiny snack …

Organising A Local Blogger Coffee Morning Sevenoaks

I get extremely nervous in any social situation especially when it’s a new one. For me, the parenting scene is dominated by parents that are older than me whether that’s by a few years or by 20. It sometimes feels quite hard to engage with people who have experienced careers, travel and general adult life. I’ve definitely been pushed out …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #11/52

This week has been an odd one. It’s been taken up by a lot of walking and it feels like that has consumed us. Not having a car is a super pain and I owe a lot to several mums at P1s school who have bent over backwards to help us. I am so eternally grateful for their kindness. Today …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #10/52 Mother’s Day

When I typed “Mother’s Day” into my blog search bar this morning, it came up with nothing amazing and that was actually written on the day itself.  I did find this post from 3 years ago which hit a nerve and made feel angry and sad all at once but reminded me exactly why I’ve never made a big thing …

My Sunday Photo 2016 #9/52

We were up and out the door this morning for 9:30am to drop P1 off for her first service as a Brownie. It was the divisions Rededication Service and we were invited to go along and watch. I hadn’t realised it didn’t start for 45 minutes after we dropped P1 so we reluctantly decided just to pick her up at …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #8/52

It’s the last day of the half term. I am actually really sad about it which is totally unusual for me. Usually I’m quite ready to shove the kids out the door for school but this time, I would quite like them to stay. I think it’s because last weekend we had swapped all the rooms around. This has resulted …

10 Reasons Why I’m Not Having Any More Children

We were never sure whether to stay with two or venture into the world of three children. Three seemed scary and now that I physically have three little humans I am 100% sure that I’m not having any more children. I know that is probably a bit of a negative statement to make, especially at just 23 years old but …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #7/52

When we found our little house, I did have worries that we would rapidly outgrow it. There was four of us. For some time P1 had the small room and P2 was with us in the big room. After getting advice from a sleep specialist, we moved P1 into the big room to share with her sister and we had …
