I love food and I love to eat out. Delicious food with no clean up? It’s a winner. Going out for a nice dinner is one of my favourite things to do and I spend far too much time at coffee shops than is normal. When I was pregnant I was determined that I would… Read More Top Tips for Eating Out with Kids
We decided (I decided, my husband disagreed with me setting up yet another direct debit) to get National Trust Family Passes last month. My friend has recently got them with her family and I thought it might motivate me to get out and about a bit more if we had passes and ideas for places… Read More Getting National Trust Family Passes
My eyes hurt. They are stinging and I’m not sure if it is tiredness, looking at a computer too long or both. Truth is, I don’t want to go to bed. Because when I go to bed I will go to sleep. When I go to sleep I will inevitably wake up and have to… Read More Dear daughter, I’m sorry.
Before we start, I haven’t been paid to write this review or anything like that. Jungle Madness is a local softplay in Swadlincote, Derbyshire that we go to regularly. One of the things I have been researching quite a lot lately has been places to take Isabelle (i.e. softplays, parks) when we move. There is a… Read More A Review: Jungle Madness Softplay

He is the dad of a girl I was quite good friends with at school, we were friends up until we finished school so it has been at least 8 years or so since I saw her or her parents. He… Read More Shall I get myself a ‘little job’?
Ok so if you saw my latest post you know that we are moving! Pretty much every weekend since we decided that this was happening, we have been doing the lengthy drive over to Shropshire and adventuring. I can’t wait to actually move into the new house now. It’s one of the most exciting things about… Read More Discovering Shropshire Series
Isabelle is 2 and a half now, it’s probably about time, right? I made a half hearted attempt a few months ago, which resulted in a defiant toddler refusing to sit on the potty and me cleaning up wee every few minutes and gave up. Then my friend who has a daughter the same age… Read More Potty Training. Will we ever leave the house again?
In my family, we bloody love a good film/tv show. We love all things Marvel, we obsess over the latest Netflix series (I’m looking at you Designated Survivor!) so of course we saw Trolls advertised and I knew Isabelle would love it. Amazingly, she sits through films at the cinema no problem (most of the… Read More Trolls and a broken nose?
WE ARE MOVING!! I have spoken about how things are always hectic in our family before and true to form yet again, we are making a big life change. There, I said it.
