The Things We Can’t Go Out Without

What's In Our Bags?

Before I had children I very rarely used a bag. Instead I’d just shove my cards, keys, phone and money into my jean pocket and off I’d go – easy!

Then I had a baby and my changing bag took over and stepping outside became something that resembled a military operation. I’d need nappies, wipes, creams, millions of spare clothes, bottles, ready made milk cartons or milk powder pots that had been carefully measured out, infacol, calpol, dummies, baby toys, Milton Keep reading…

My Sunday Photo

Even though he’s caked in dirt, tired from a long day at Kew Gardens and looking quite stroppy because I was taking a photo of him …I think he looks kinda gorgeous

The True Value Of A Mum

Today me and the kids should have been giving presents and cards, maybe having a party or going for a meal out. But we’re not. Instead we’re taking a trip to the graveyard to lay flowers in lieu of those gifts and cards. Today would have been my Mum’s 70th Birthday.

She’s been gone for just over six years now but I still miss her so much. She was the woman I could tell anything to, who would generally take my side over Keep reading…

My Back To School Wishlist #GettingCoolForSchool

flippy skirt

It’s that time of year where everyone is looking forward to the summer holidays and no more school – ok, that’s probably what the kids are all looking forward to more! For me though it’s a mixed bag. I’m looking forward to having my little ones for the summer and being able to relax together and have some fun. I’m also a little sad as I know that after this summer both of them will be at school.

Attitude and A&E


Scott’s had a bit of a mixed week. Last week he was asking me if I could forget to take him to school as he didn’t want to go in and take part in the Father’s Day assembly they were doing. He told me that he hadn’t had to take part in the preparations and had been allowed to play but that the other children were then asking him questions about why he doesn’t have a daddy.  He’d had nightmares Keep reading…

My Sunday Photo - Alexa wheeling a tyre along

I was talking to Scott’s teacher and then turned around to find Alexa playing with this tyre, it took ages to get her to leave it alone…little weirdo!

RealTimes – Ultimate Family Moments Competition

Whilst at BritMums Live earlier, I got chatting to the lovely people from RealTimes.

In short, it is an app that takes your photos and videos, picks out what it analyses to be your best moments and it places it all into a magical montage with absolutely no effort required from you …sounds just like my sort of app! Best of all, it’s available free and anyone you choose to share with doesn’t need to have the app themselves.

I’ll post up Keep reading…

Baby Annabell Review


It’s no secret that Alexa absolutely loves all things Baby Annabell, after all that’s why she features in my header design! Last year at LolliBop Festival Alexa had to be dragged from the Baby Annabell area after wanting everything there and then attempting to run off with a Comfort Seat and a doll.

It’s all my fault of course, I decided that she needed a doll for her first Birthday and went in search of one but kept coming up against Keep reading…

Kid-Eco Cardboard Rocket Review


We were recently sent a cardboard rocket playhouse from Kid-Eco to review. From the second Scott and Alexa had known it was coming the level of excitement was through the roof. They love playhouses and all things space, so what better than a rocket playhouse?!

Inside the large yet fairly flat box were the pieces of the rocket waiting to be put together and a sheet of instructions – but they weren’t needed. Assembly was really simple and took no longer Keep reading…
