one thing me and Scott do not get many of is date nights . If you have followed us since being pregnant with Nila then you will already know this .We’ve promised that we are going to try and make date night every month as I really do think it is important to get couples time/ especially with having three kiddies!


IT’S LUNCHTIME | SCHOOL SNACK IDEAS

The teletubbies have always been a favourite in our house . Our eldest daughter is now 15 and she absolutely loved them growing up, as did Alessia and now we have baby Nila,she is besotted with them.


KEEPING WARM THIS TIME OF YEAR WITH SIMPLY HIKE

The nights are getting darker earlier and colder and although I love summer , I absolutely love the cosey autumn nights. There is something about feeling snug isn’t there ?. The season for hot chocolates, pumpkin scented candles and a good warm jacket!


A WEEKEND IN MANCHESTER AT BLOGON TOYS

HEMSBY BEACH

Scott has never been a beach person, in fact he hates it! :) I on the other hand love the beach. For me it is the best place to relax and unwind . It is so therapeutic and I honestly believe the sea air is so good for you.

Disney princesses have been a firm favourite in our household for 15 years . Unfortunately for Scott, and yay for me!  we have had three girls , no boys, all girls and all these girls have absolutely loved the Disney princesses.

BACK TO SCHOOL WITH SMIGGLE

I am sure every parent out there is getting ready for their kiddies to return to school. I bet I am not the only one that either forgets something , or leaves it until the last minute and everything is sold out.



TEMPLE OF TICKETS

Growing up and going to Clacton every summer holiday was my childhood. I have taken the older two back to where we use to have our summer holidays and I would love to go back there with all the girls. I had my favourite game that you could bet your life on , I would be on it for most of the duration of our holiday.



ROAR DINOSAUR ADVENTURE PARK

We love visiting new places and we love exploring new attractions as the kids love exploring.Yesterday the sun was on our side , so we headed to roar dinosaur adventure park in Norwich. We are staying with my parents over the summer holidays so it is only 50 minutes away.

changes in society.

SHARK NV601IF200UK BAGLESS VACUUM CLEANER & CORDLESS BUNDLE [AO REVIEW]

When it comes to cleaning up, I love a good hoover round the house . I always tell people if you only have ten minutes to spare before a visitor is due to arrive then whack your vacuum out , you’d be surprised how tidier a room looks by a quick hoover.


WE FINALLY GOT OUT! DAY AT HEMSBY

I have promised Alessia we would go out as soon as the rain had gone. The weather has taken another turn and it has been horrendous- thunder and lightening , the works. I checked the weather for the weekend and Saturday was going to be glorious so I kept my fingers and toes crossed that it stayed that way.

I CHOSE TO BOTTLE FEED

I have wanted to write about my decision to bottle feed for a while now and have put it off for many reasons - the backlash, the negative comments maybe? , but recently I have seen so much down pour on bottle feeding mums that I felt the need to speak out and say it is ok to not want to breast feed .

The girls have always loved Sylvanian families. Ever since Kadiann was little, she is now 15!. we have been collecting them for so long and the girls have a very impressive collection :).



SUMMER FRESH WITH FASHION WORLD

i don’t know about you but I never seem to update my wardrobe for summer. I end up living in the same ‘summers dress and shorts and never think to treat myself .


THE SUN HAS GOT HIS HAT ON

The sun has gone his hat in, and his coming out to play, thank god!.We have had huge outbursts of rain and thunder and lightning for 4 days now and I honestly thought summer was over and that was the sun gone until next year!.


GETTING CRAFTY WITH THE KUMIKREATOR BRACELET MAKER

When I was younger I can remember there being a massive craze making friendship bracelets. We use to stick a few pieces of thick wool into a safety pin and attach it to the knee of our trousers and get stuck in making bracelets, and I taught the girls how to make them a few years ago, which brought back some very good memories.


WHATS IN MY CHANGING BAG | ISWADDLE ARIA

watch it religiously every year.

We have been on the hunt for a new car seat for Nila for a while . The one we have does the job but honestly , it doesn’t look the comfiest and she almost looks like she has outgrown it already.

The last of the three to have her birthday. She is also the youngest in her class when it comes to birthdays and honestly , she still feels like my little baby.


ARE YOU HOLIDAY READY?

The summer holidays are in full swing here and I know now is the time everyone will be off on their summer holidays. We were hoping to take the girls to Turkey this summer but I’m still not quite ready to take baby Nila abroad.



FROM CO- SLEEPING TO USING A COT

If you are a regular reader then you will know that I shared our co - sleeping story a few weeks back and I had decided that when we moved , which we have :)  that I would be transferring Nila into a cot and trying to get a little bit more of a routine with bedtimes.


A WEEKEND OF FUN

What a weekend. The weather started looking gloomy and I was crossing my fingers hoping it would sod off and bring the sun back and it did :) . It has been glorious all weekend and we have definitely made the most of it .




CAMPING OUT IN THE GARDEN

When it comes to summer I think we all automatically think sunbathing , bbq’s and struggling to sleep in bed as it is so bloody hot!At the minute in Norfolk, we are reaching  temperatures of 24 every day!

Today is a very nervous day for Lessie bug. She is transitioning into a new school, in a new area. If you are new around here then a bit of a quick catch up for you . We have recently moved to Norfolk from Staffordshire and Alessia is settling into her new school today.


OUR DAY TRIP TO LIVERPOOL

If you are a regular reader of mine , then you will know that Scott and I never get chance to go out together , without the girls.

Yay it’s officially Summer and actually looks like it too!. The weather in the UK has been glorious over the past few weeks and I have been loving it .I must admit though, my wardrobe is not very summer friendly at the minute and definitely needs a make over.


FINDING THE PERFECT SIPPY CUP | DR BROWNS TRANSITIONING BOTTLE

With Summer now In full swing, I am always conscious of the girls staying hydrated and drinking enough water . The older two take their hydrate bottles to school and are able to re fill them throughout the day, so I know they are set for the school day.


HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY NILA BUG

I can not believe you are one already baby girl. It doesn’t feel like 5 minutes ago that I was ringing your daddy and telling him that you were on your way, and him rushing home in a panic. You have had the best birthday and we have had so much fun together .



PROJECT MC2 ULTIMATE SPY KIT

Alessia is definitely my explorer child. She loves anything to do with crafts and making things. She is slightly obsessed with slim and anything gloopy and has recently signed up for Science club after school on a Monday which she is loving so far.


SUMMER BEAUTY ESSENTIALS

i don’t know about you , but when it comes to summer , I like to keep make up and beauty to a minimum. The last thing I want is a face full of full Coverage foundation or long lash mascara that has smeared because I've been sweating like a hot mess all day and now resemble a panda! :)


PLANNING A FAMILY FIESTA HOLIDAY TO MAJORCA

Now summer is finally here in the UK , I hope anyway, we have been out a lot more as a family , which makes me happy. One thing I hate is being stuck in doors with the miserable weather.


PEEK A BOO - TURTLE TOTS

We are back in full swing with turtle tots now the half term is over . I must admit I really missed Our lesson with having the week off. We did plan to go swimming in the half term but everyone decided to be poorly , typical isn’t it!. I reckon Nila missed it too as she couldn’t wait to get back into the water when we arrived :)



OUR CO-SLEEPING JOURNEY

It seems very odd me writing about co-sleeping as I never in a million years thought I would be a co-sleeping parent . My older two girls both went into cots and had a bedtime routine , as the typical book suggests. So to be writing about co-sleeping is definitely something new to me and honestly, I am absolutely loving it .
