This is somehow the last post of 2017? I honestly can’t believe it. I say it every month but it feels like the whole month has flown by in a flash and I’m not quite sure where it goes. December however, seems to step the madness up a level. Between Christmas plays, lunches, non uniform days, and various other school events I feel like my feet haven’t touched the floor since I wrote my last post. As a result of this, I have some pretty tired kids, who seem to be sleeping in later – yes it’s never been known…

The last month from October to November  has again been a whirl of hectic family life. Clubs, homework and school runs are our normal these days. I think with the weather getting colder (and the in the run up to Christmas) snuggling on the sofa and keeping warm has been our main goal this month. When we can we like to try and get out for some fresh air – especially with the dog. All three of the kids get so excited when they see that ‘Jack Frost’ has been in the mornings too. We’ve also embraced the dreaded germs…

I swear these posts come round quicker and quicker each month. We are well and truly into autumn now, although we are really enjoying some lovely mild weather. It seems like the last month has flown by. It always seems that way when the kids are at school. Life becomes a blur of school runs and homework and making sure the PE kits and swimming bags aren’t forgotten. I’m really looking forward to the holidays which will start on Wednesday, I can’t wait for a bit of a slower pace. I’m all too aware looking at these photos of the…

It’s the middle of September and I’m excited for all things Autumn – expect all the coloured leaves photos in the next few months. I also can’t believe we are nearly on the countdown to Christmas! The last month for my three was a bit of a game changer. I have to say I was dreading the summer holidays as the last few months have been all about the arguing between Izzie and Ollie. I think that Izzie has been used to being the older, more dominant one and as Ollie has got bigger and found his own voice and…

August – how are we halfway through already? I swear each month it comes around quicker than the last. August has been a lovely relaxed month for us. After the madness of the end of school and the sheer exhaustion from everything that went on, laid back August has definitely been very welcome. I’ve loved having all three kids at home – and loved the reduction in shouting from not having to get out the door in the mornings. We’ve spent our time playing at home in the garden when the weather has been ok (August, dude what’s the weather?),…

It’s Mid July and that means it’s time again for The Siblings Project. This months photos are some of my favourite of my three that I’ve taken. I particularly love how cute they look in their matching wetsuits. We were actually given the smaller two last year by a lady on the beach whose children had outgrown them – there really are some lovely people in the world. July has been all about counting down the end of school and preschool. Even though we had a lovely break in Cornwall at the end of June (where this months photos were…
