Does my child have a 6th sense?

It’s been a few months since Emily’s granny passed away. Everyday Emily would see her granny and everyday their special little bond grew. Now that granny isn’t here, Emily being so young doesn’t understand where she’s gone, but recently, especially in the last few weeks, Emily has been pointing in various positions towards the dinning…

We visited Jungle Jim’s again and this time had mixed feelings

Emily and I have only been to Jungle Jim’s on two occasions including our last visit. The last time was last year with Clare and her daughter Scarlet where we visited the inside soft play area for children. Although the soft play area was ok, it wasn’t great for them, as they were restricted to…

I threw out Emily’s bath toys

So recently I’ve noticed the bath has been a little dirty and I couldn’t really understand it because most of her toys spent time in hot water, so I assumed they’d be clean, but I was wrong. When Emily was super tiny she had a Sophie la Girafe teething toy. She loved it and it…

A good walk for little legs

A few days ago after a morning meeting, Emily and I met Clare and Scarlet for a few hours. We had decided the day before that we’d walk along Government Acre, letting our little ones run free, then pop by the boating pool for a cuppa, hoping that the long walk would have an affect,…

I meal plan a week in advance, here’s why you should do it too

Keeping on track of what I need to cook for my family isn’t always the easiest task in the world. Most meals I cook for Sam and Emily, doesn’t always interest Emily. She’s good with her food but she’s a little-food-but-often kind of child, so a sit down meal in the evening before us adults…

Newington Rocks, literally!

Last Saturday, Sam, Emily and I went for the first time to Newington Rocks, an afternoon of live music, food, fun and more for all the family hosted by Newington Community Primary School in Ramsgate. For the last few years I’ve heard great things about this family event, from friends, neighbours, people on Facebook and…

A new game to help reduce anxiety? Sign me up!

Anxiety if you’ve ever experienced it, is unpleasant. It can affect people in different ways, at different times, can last a moment, or a lot longer and can be due to a number of different factors like work, relationships, financial worries and more. I’ve experienced anxiety for a number of years but have managed it…

Emily is a Little explorer

Whatever we’re doing and wherever we are doing it, Emily loves to explore. She’s an adventurer, an eager explorer wanting to know everything, why, what it is and how she can play or be part of it. Don’t be fooled by her statue, she may be only 18 months but she knows what she wants…

I love Ramsgate

If you haven’t visited Ramsgate yet, why the heck not? Ramsgate is a beauty and home to the only Royal harbour in the country. To add to that it’s next door to a glorious sandy beach. Honestly it’s gorgeous and you have to check it out. Ok, so the high street isn’t great, but with…
