One of my favourite memories of being a kid was collecting sets of little toys – maybe it’s in my personality as I now do the same with handbags and lipsticks, but its certainly a trait I’ve passed on to Izzie. Izzie has been collecting NumNoms since last summer, and loves convincing me and my Mum to buy her new ones, or the mystery pots. She’s also been saving up her pocket money to buy more. If you haven’t heard of NumNoms, they are small squishy food shaped characters that all have their own smell. When we were asked to…

For the first time ever I’m not going to say how quickly January flew by – I swear it has lasted about 8 weeks! I was so gutted that I missed the December Me & Mine Project, we were just too busy enjoying Christmas and spending time together that we literally took no family photos at all. January is always a funny old month for our family – it is the run up to the anniversary of losing Sophie, and this year will mark 6 years. That alongside the Christmas decorations being gone, makes January a long, cold, grey month…

This July will mark 10 years since we bought this house. In those ten years, its seen some changes, a wedding,  3 babies being brought home, a dog and cat.

When we bought his house it was a new build, and as such everything that was in it in came as standard – the bathrooms were all the same style, with the same generic white square tiles. Over the 10 years we have been…

Its the middle of January and that means its time for the first Siblings Project of 2018. I’ll admit I’ve totally dropped the ball with photographs this month. After a nearly  whole month of daily vlogging in December, my camera has definitely taken a back seat. So much so that when it came to taking this months Sibling photos, the battery was as flat as a pancake. As with most things in life, I’ve winged it – and in the process realised why I prefer taking photos outside! These mad three were slightly hyper and not in the mood for…

6 days before Christmas Ollie turned 5. Having your birthday just before Christmas has its good and bad parts. Bad – when people wrap your presents in Christmas paper, or give you a joint Christmas and Birthday gift (luckily we have wonderful family and friends and this rarely happens). Good – everyone is in a festive party mood already, and you get presents twice within a week. Ollie started school this year, and so he was lucky to have two parties.  We held a joint birthday party with one of his friends for their classmates at a local soft play. We…

2017 Goals and How I got on Last January I set myself some goals for my blog and youtube. The plan was to complete them by the end of 2017. Lets see how I got on… •To vlog more and grow my YouTube channel – and to learn to edit faster, with the aim of uploading twice a week – I also really want a Canon G7X to help with that! Also I want to be able to add my channel to the Channel Mum list of Vloggers – I need to upload at least three times a month for…
