I love supporting small local businesses and have recently come across a little gem in Maidenhead called 'A Feather Dream' Run by a local Mum and qualified Interior Designer, Kirstie. If you love hand painted, up-cycled furniture and toys this one is for you! I caught up with Kirstie and asked her why she started … Continue reading A Feather Dream
So another month has flown by and our smallest is now 13 months and slowly moving even further away from being my baby and turning into a proper little girl! This month she has loved Hannah being home for the school holidays - much to Han's frustration! She loves following her around, stealing her food … Continue reading Ruby’s 13 Month Update!
A little late writing this month's Siblings project. Time seems to be running away with me at the moment between work, school and the kids I literally can't seem to get everything done! Anyhooooo....this month marked Ruby's first birthday! I was really looking forward to getting lots of pictures of the kids but, yep you … Continue reading Siblings Project – July 2017
So I am only a little late writing this (a week and a half...it could have been worse!) but when you turn one the celebrations appear to just go on and on! Ruby had a lovely birthday, we spent the day at Legoland as Mark took the day off to help her celebrate, we had … Continue reading Ruby is One!
Dear Ruby, We made it to one! A rather large achievement on my part since I have managed to keep two children fed and watered for a year (7 in total) when I can't even keep a house plant alive for a week! When you came into the world exactly a year ago today, I … Continue reading A Letter To Ruby On Her First Birthday
So Britain is in the midst of a heatwave and it's roasting. I am not the biggest fan of stupidly hot weather unless I am on a beach or next to a pool with a cold drink in my hand. Hannah doesn't seem to care about being hot and she just gets on with it. … Continue reading Indoor Activities for Kids on Hot Days
This month we have been enjoying some beautiful weather which means lots of picnics and BBQs in both Mum's garden and Mark's parents. I've been really enjoying taking pictures of both of the kids together and watching how they interact, not just using the time Hannah is entertaining Ruby to get jobs done. Hannah is really … Continue reading Siblings Project – June 2017
As I have got quite a few new followers who are complete strangers, I thought I would do a post about me (quite self-indulgent I know!) Here's my list of 20 facts about me.... I wear contact lenses, most of the time, people are often shocked when they see me in glasses! I am afraid … Continue reading 20 Facts About Me
Since Hannah spent the half term school holidays with her Dad, I thought it would be fun to let her 'guest post' on here. Hannah was so excited that she could write her own post for the blog (which she loves reading!). Everything written below is in her own words and typed with her own … Continue reading Hannah’s Half Term – In Her Own Words
We recently swapped rooms with Hannah, she had the bigger room but we had the built in wardrobes. We decided she could get better use out of the big wardrobes than us and so we swapped. This also meant that Ruby didn't have to change room when they started sharing as we would just swap … Continue reading The Big Bedroom Sort Out
