Half term ‘not’ fun

How does half term go down in your house? If you’re anything like me you’ll plan away every second of the week. On Tuesday evening I asked if she’d like to know the surprise treat I had planned for the following afternoon, the excitement spilled out of her “oh yes please please please tell me, […]

The day out in London

I really do try and get the best and the most out of life I think that it should be about experiences and new things and yesterday we had is just an amazing experience. We took the kids on the train to London I’ve researched it and try to work out where to be and […]

Night at the theatre

There was so much excitement on the way to the King’s theatre, Southsea for the opening night of Madagascar The Musical, with two 5 year olds armed with a bag of malteasers and little flutters of “I like to move it, move it!” And it didn’t disappoint. The show follows the same story as the […]

Caught cake handed! 

Caught out! Yep I got caught red handed trying to hide the fact that I was stuffing my face with chocolate Swiss roll from a kids party buffet. I wasn’t even hungry until the bowls of sausages and crisps started to come out. My daughter only eats 3 wotsits and half a chicken nugget on […]

Summer time wasting

In the summer holidays were all looking for things to keep the kids occupied, so please can I pass on my little tip to you. Having just got back from a very rainy and muddy Camp Bestival weekend at certain times it was easier said than done entertaining our little rugrats, but we stumbled upon […]

It's all going swimmingly.

Friday Foods eaten- jam sandwich  Mess made- a few crumbs from the sandwich and a muddy footprint on the edge of the seat Bonus points for the Toyota Yaris- when you pull away at a junction it sounds like you’re taking off, which also doubles as a great in car game of aeroplanes  No sooner […]

A big blog perk

For 4 years now I’ve been blogging about how I constantly get being a mum wrong and letting you know about the mistakes and stupid stuff my daughter and I get up to. It has always served as a bit of therapy and of course you lovely people have helped me out no end with […]
