Autumn is here and I love it

Now that November is here the mornings and nights are darker, the days colder and the floor littered with leaves, autumn is well and truly here. Amongst it all, the Sky daily has been beautiful. Looking out across the field near our house, we can see the stunning colours filling the sky as the sun…

Great benefits available at the little bears club at Westwood Cross

Going shopping with children whatever the kind is rarely a fun day out, unless they’re small, like really really small. So when I go to Westwood Cross in Broadstairs, it’s a rarity because Emily isn’t interested in sitting in a pram whilst I browse the aisle in each and every shop, and why should she?…

Winter is coming

The last few days the weather has been a little all over the place. Last weekend changed it all – last Saturday nights storm happened, then Sunday came with a huge gust of freezing wind and this week, although sunny, you can feel the weather change. It’s funny, because last year, to the day, looking…

Is anyone else’s child obsessed with ice as much as mine?

It’s a common known fact Emily is going through some absolute shit with her teeth at the moment.

I went to the hairdressers and Emily hated it.

Why Amazon Prime’s subscribe and is a lifesaver for any parent

I’ve been an Amazon Prime member since last year and I love it. I signed up admittedly because my niece wanted a particular doll, a Monsters High doll that I said I’d buy for her and couldn’t find anywhere, apart from Prime. But I don’t just use Prime for its useful services like next day…

Am I mad to be already thinking about Christmas? presents?

Don’t laugh, it’s true I’ve been thinking it. I know I shouldn’t and yes it’s only August but I’ve already bought 3 Christmas presents, 1 of which I bought 2 months ago. Thing is there are a lot of people to buy for and instead of leaving it all last minute like some, I think…

Let’s hear it for the rain! *round of applause*

I’ve gotta say I never thought I’d say this but thank fuck for the rain. Every drop that pat pat patters on the roof, I’m loving every drop of it. The last few weeks whilst lovely, the sun has been ridiculously hot. So hot it’s almost felt like an oven cooking us with its intense…

Only a few days to go before Emily’s Christening

Emily’s Christening is in less than a few days and this week has been crazy with work, keeping Emily active and busy as well as doing a million other things that I didn’t really need to add to my week but had to do anyway. On top of that, obviously I decided to do the…
