Childs Farm skincare range is perfect for all the family

Since Emily was born, her skin has been always something I’ve been worried about. With a family history of eczema and psoriasis, it was obviously going to be on my mind from the start. But thankfully, Emily hasn’t experienced any dry skin, just a little sensitive skin, much like Sam. Because of this, finding skincare…

A Chinese & Thai Foodie Fakeaway Eve with Friends

Who doesn’t like a takeaway? Chinese, Thai, Indian, curry, fish & chips, cheeky Nando’s, pizza, burgers, kebab – the options are endless. Us brits love them. You only have to sit and watch tv and notice the endless stream of adverts that can confirm this – JustEat, Deliveroo, Dominos. It’s easier to eat in, than…

Food best shared with family & friends

The weekend before last we had family and friends over for Sunday lunch. It’s been a few weeks since we’ve seen everyone. Christmas was a quiet affair, we barely saw anyone. I think only now I’m slowly catching up with everyone of my own friends, everyone is just so busy cracking on with the new…

A walk down Government Acre

New Years Eve, we wanted to go on a little walking adventure. Christmas was mostly spent at home, with the occasional visit out, but we hadn’t done much together just the three of us. After a little visit to the park the day before, shop and walk home without the buggy, a huge smile on…

Christmas Lunch at Brewers Fayre

When it comes to Christmas, it’s usually a family affair. Last year Emily was so small, Christmas was hardly an event as she was so ill that a get-together with Sam’s brother and family on Boxing Day was planned around hoping she wouldn’t vomit at the Holden Horse. This year, our Christmas lunch with Sam’s…

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…

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…

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…

My mum is down this weekend, I’m so excited 

My mum is coming down this weekend. It’s so exciting. The last time I saw her, we promised we’d go up to Isleworth every months for a few days and see the family but unfortunately life gets in the way and that didn’t happen, that was March. Crazy home much time has passed since then….
