Siblings December 2016

Ah, December is here and with it comes over-excitement, anticipation and endless questions. When will it be Christmas? How does Santa do that? What shall we feed the reindeer? How does the elf work? What will we do on Christmas day? – this last question has been answered many, many …

Meeting Santa at The National Sea Life Centre

Over the weekend we took the kids to the National Sea Life Centre Birmingham to meet the man himself, Santa Claus! It’s fair to say that they were really, really looking forward to it. We had a brilliant time at the Sea Life Centre last time that we visited, for …

Win Tickets to ‘What the Ladybird Heard’!

We are big Julia Donaldson fans here, as I imagine most households with young children are. So I am so excited that we’ve been invited along to see What the Ladybird Heard at Birmingham Town Hall, just after Christmas. We’ve yet to tell the kids, so this will be a …

The Giovanni Rana Famiglia Table Challenge

A couple of weeks ago we were challenged to take the the Giovanni Rana Famiglia Table Challenge. Not ones to shy away from a challenge, especially one that involves delicious Italian food, we decided to take them up on it. Italian food always goes down well here with all of …

Siblings November 2016

Another month, another Siblings post. I have to admit, I am struggling to believe we’re in November! The kids are in Christmas mode. Already. It’s kind of difficult for them not to be as everywhere they go there are adverts, signs and products promoting it, so of course to them …

Kidzania Is Not To Be Missed!

On Saturday we got the train down to London for the day. We had been invited by the team over at Kidzania to go along for a visit and I have to say, all four of us were intrigued to see what it was all about.     If you’ve never …

Thank Mum It’s ‘Fries-Day’!

I cannot be the only mother who gets to a Friday and just wants an easy evening with the kids? I spend all of Friday working on the blog whilst the kids are at school and in nursery, so come 3pm as I leave the house, I just want to …

Night-Time Adventures with Energizer

Over the weekend, as we were out in the garden enjoying Bonfire Night, we decided that it would be the perfect time for the kids to take part in a few night time adventures. The team over at Energizer® had sent us a box full of goodies as they are …

On Sibling Love

I have no doubt mentioned here before that I have a brother. A little brother, though to be fair, he is a tad taller than me now! My brother and I have the same age gap as my children. Well, if we’re being absolutely exact, our age gap is 2 …

Siblings September 2016

It’s time to pause and take a little look at my two this month, for the Siblings Project. I love joining in with this as it means I have shots of the two of them together every month, something to look back on in the years to come. This month’s …

At The End of the Summer Holidays

At the end of the summer holidays I feel sad. I don’t want to send my girl back to school tomorrow. The freedom that the holidays bring, no school runs, no restrictions on our time, is just magical. Having these two little faces around me at all times makes me …

Happy 4th Birthday, Little Man

My Little Man is 4 years old today. I can hardly believe it! I thought Boo had grown up quickly, but Little Man’s years seem to be flying by. Four years ago today, Little Man made his way into the world by way of a planned cesarean section. He was …

Fun at the Just So Festival

Last weekend saw us packing our overnight bags and heading an hour or so north to the Just So Festival. If you’ve not heard of or been to the Just So Festival before, then I’d describe it as being full of adventures for families, activities taking place everywhere you look, with …

5 Free Summer Adventures

Hooray for the summer holidays! We have no breaks away planned, so we’re now halfway through six weeks of lazy days intermingled with play dates and summer adventures. I love having no school runs, no places that we have to be, watching my two play with each other all day long. As …

Siblings August 2016

This month’s look at my pair of siblings feels a bit different to normal. August is a special month as it’s the only one all year that they have each other 24/7. And they love having each other 24/7. Yes, there are the little squabbles, most often over things like …

So Now I Want to Make Jam, Have Ducks and Get a Dog!

We’ve just got back home after a brilliant day out at Countryfile Live, thanks to the lovely team at Blacks. . The sun was shining as the crowds completely descended on Blenheim Palace. I’d heard traffic had been bad leading up to the show, so we’d set off early, but …
