Introducing the newest member of the family!

For a long time now we have wanted to get a kitten and knowing that we weren’t going to have any more children, we decided that now was as good a time as any to add some more chaos into the house. We originally started looking at adopting a cat but quickly came to the realisation that with Benjamin being 2, it was unlikely that we would be able to adopt due to the fact that lots of the cats {Read More}

Traditions in all Corners of the Globe

Around the world, there are various traditions and customs that are observed by families that may at first appear to somewhat out of the ordinary to some, however, they make up a large part of local culture. For example, in Great Britain it is commonplace for people to dance around a maypole and roll cheese in the Cotswolds. Other cultures would think that we are mad, but they nonetheless make up part of what makes us British, in the same {Read More}

Do You Feel Guilty Going Out Without the Kids?

At what point do you begin to feel comfortable going out without the kids? When is it that you can find yourself placing your trust in a babysitter or leaving the young’uns with the grandparents overnight as you paint the town red? If you have kids, you are probably past the stage of hitting the nightclubs and strolling in as the sun rises, it’s very much a young person’s game, but that doesn’t mean that you cannot go out and {Read More}

World Book Day Fun

As it’s world book day tomorrow, I thought I’d put a little post together and show you all our World Book Day potatoes! I love the idea of world book day. As an English teacher, I think anything that encourages a love of reading in children is wonderful and will only benefit them long term. Our children can’t get enough of books (at the moment!) and they each have two stories a night read to them as well as various {Read More}

Does every family have an A&E child?

So I think we were quite lucky with Isabella, the only times she’s been in hospital where on her 1st birthday when she had tonsillitis and then again just after her 4th birthday to have grommets. Other than that, she’s not really hurt herself or given us any issues. This lured us in to a false sense of security though. We were not prepared for the chaos that Benjamin would bring! He has always been a happy go lucky little {Read More}

Not so Insta-worthy!

With all the pressures we get from social media about being (or at least showing) the world we are the perfect parent/family/person, I thought I’d put a few images together for my not so Instaworthy post just to make you smile! What’s your best Not so Instaworthy picture? My most recent not so Instaworthy photo was this – It was a picture of the FIRST time Benjamin have ever done fancy dress. We’ve tried him in various outfits over the {Read More}

We made it to the New Year!

So, we’ve finally made it to the New Year! Last term felt like a really long term and we were all desperately ready for the break but we’ve also made some really positive steps since September. So here’s a catch up before they go back to school tomorrow! Isabella Isabella has done really well at school, especially with her reading. She is starting to enjoy the stories a little more now they have a little more to them. But more {Read More}

Feeling Nostalgic – My engagement story

We have a couple of weddings coming up in the New Year and all the planning and excitement has got me thinking back to my own engagement and wedding. I had been with my then boyfriend for almost 7 years before he proposed. We met when I was 17 and he stayed by my side as I worked my way through university (twice!) and my teacher training. He wanted me to have finished my training before we got married but {Read More}

I love my kids but…

*THIS IS A LIGHTHEARTED POST – NOT INTENDED TO UPSET ANYONE* We all love our children unconditionally – we love them because they are lovely, funny, and kind and, well, because they are yours! But sometimes (and I know it can’t just be me) don’t you just want to hide away in a small dark space and stuff your face with all their sweets and snacks just to get through the next 10 minutes or do you ever get to {Read More}
