Siblings 2020 – February

Firstly, it’s the 29th of February!! It’s a leap year woohoo. Anyway… I have felt like February has been a long month. The weather has been pretty rubbish and there’s been a half-term in the middle too. I mean, who’s idea was it to have a school holiday when the weather is yuck and nobody wants to spend any length …

Siblings 2020 – January

Welcome back to another year of the Siblings post. This project originated from Lucy at Dear Beautiful many years ago when blog linkys were a thing and I’m so grateful she started it. It’s a wonderful way to look back on each month. January is a long month. There’s lots of talk about it feeling a bit heavy on the …

Siblings 2019 – November

November was a full-on month in our household. We had so many weekends that were filled with fun thanks to my blog. We also saw ourselves thrown into Christmas which felt far too early. Do you have your decorations up? We put ours up a few days ago after a visit to Hyde Park Winter Wonderland finally got us in …

Siblings 2019 – Catch Up – May To October

It has been over half a year since I last posted a siblings post. The longest gap since January 2015 (that blog post gets me all clucky!)when I started joining in with the project.

Top Tips For Swimming As A Family

Swimming is one of the skills that I see as super important for every child to learn. With Freya, my eldest, I was taking part in mother and baby lessons as soon as we could but with the other two learning to swim was much more of a family activity. Getting active on a regular basis can add years to …

A Tudor Pageant At Dover Castle

I feel so ashamed that I’m only just writing about our Dover Castle trip. It feels like this happened such a long time ago. I’m definitely playing a huge catch up over here on my blog. We signed up to be members of the English Heritage over the Easter holidays whilst in the Isle Of Wight visiting Carisbrook Castle. Sadly …

Spontaneous Road Trip To Camber Sands Beach

I have really struggled to find the time to edit photos and write about our days out this summer, so I can only apologise that even though it’s back to school and Autumn is definitely round the corner I am uploading lots of summery posts from the school holidays. I thought we’d start with our trip to Camber Sands Beach. …

Our Scrapbook Summer Holidays 2018 – Week 5

It’s been a week much like the previous one, with a lot of time spent indoors. Each day we’ve taken a quick trip out to the shops mainly or to a local park. Hubby and I have been very preoccupied with giving this blog a little refresh. I have had to (and still am) go through all of my posts …

Our Scrapbook Summer Holidays 2018 – Week 1

Welcome to our summer scrapbook! It’s our first Sunday of the school summer holidays although technically we’ve already had two full weeks with P3. I thought it would be a great idea to create a roundup style post of each week of our holidays. The aim is to just showcase one photo from each day of the week with a …

Strawberry Picking & Father’s Day

We are definitely not a family that makes a big deal of things like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. For us, it’s just like any other day with chores and mouths to feed. But for some reason this Father’s Day was so much better than previous ones. Two of the girls had made bits for Hubby at school. …

Our Last Day – IOW 2018

Last days are always bittersweet. I always get butterflies and nerves. Anticipation of the reality hitting when we reach our own front door and also the real want to cram as much in for the last few hours as possible. Is packed up most of our bits the night before. It made our more much less stressful which is something …

His 28th Birthday At Isle Of Wight Steam Railway – IOW 2018

Hubby and I are pretty bad at celebrating birthdays. We rarely get each other cards or presents and honestly birthdays are just like any other day. Only this year, we happened to be waking up at The Orchards Holiday Park for Hubby’s 28th birthday. This year I cooked bacon sandwiches for Hubby to have in bed and the girls woke him up …

Family Day Out To Chessington In Pictures

I have wrote about adventures to Chessington World Of Adventures twice before; our first experience was of their Howl-oween event three years ago now, and the second time was last year for the opening of the new Gruffalo River Ride which had replaced the much loved Bubbleworks. So for this post about our recent trip to Chessington I thought I …

Finding The Right Time To Book That Family Holiday

It can be tricky to balance the daily running of your home and plan a family break at the same time. Between school, available dates, and the general buzz of a busy household, finding the time to search for the best prices on offer can often seem like a little dose of extra hassle that you just don’t have time …
