Little Cook Boxes – a parent’s midweek saviour

It’s a familiar scene; you fall in the door laden with school bags, coats, drink bottles, packed lunch boxes, the wet swim kit and trip over the pile of shoes that have been abandoned in the hall. more “Little Cook Boxes – a parent’s midweek saviour”

Raising Musical Children + Book #giveaway

“You’ll regret it when you’re grown up”. The words my Mum used when I’d begged and begged her to stop my piano lessons, which seemed to go on my entire childhood, yet never once saw me achieve a single grade, and had me in tears, hiding in the kitchen from the two hundred year old guy who came to our house to teach my brother and I each week. more “Raising Musical Children + Book #giveaway”

With just 8 weeks until we take off on a family holiday with friends and all our kids, the countdown is definitely on! It’s always a sure sign you are on that countdown when you start picking up hats, shorts, new beach towels and even the odd toiletry to put aside ‘for holiday’. more “The toddler holiday buggy conundrum solved with @KiddiesKingdom and the Joie Nitro Stroller”

Drusillas Park Review; The perfect family zoo day

It’s fair to say we have done every Kent based zoo, wildlife park, farm to death over the last six years, so it’s always nice to broaden our zoo day horizons. We were contacted by Drusillas Park a few weeks back and invited to come to their press day to see what East Sussex’s Drusillas has to offer families looking for an adventure packed day out. more “Drusillas Park Review; The perfect family zoo day”

Mum Guilt and Me

Over the last few weeks my blog has taken me to some fun places and made me some new blogging connections. One of the faces who appeared at two Kent blogging events within the same week, in Whitstable and Chatham was the ever so lovely Jo from Guilty Mother. Jo asked the panels at both the Clemmie Hooper Mums The Word Mamas Meets Up, and the Call The Midwife Tour at Chatham Dockyard about ‘Mum Guilt’, which was the original inspiration for her blog. more “Mum Guilt and Me”

#ChickenPox Have yours had it?

As much as Chicken Pox spreads like wildfire through schools, nurseries, families and playgroups, it sometimes seems like it’s spread through social media too – I’ve seen so many posts and pictures about kids going down with it lately. It’s dragged up some pretty vivid memories with our girls, of when we had our episode in the spring of 2015; a milestone moment for any Mum and one that thankfully (hopefully) rules us out as ‘done’ with the pox.

A family day out to @PaultonsPark #PeppaPigWorld

Since our six year old daughter was tiny, visiting Peppa Pig World has been up there on the list of things we wanted to do. Despite cursing the hours we dozed in bed or on the sofa whilst our early riser would happily watch episode after episode on those bleak pre-6am mornings, there is no denying Peppa Pig has been a big part of our parenting lives. more “A family day out to @PaultonsPark #PeppaPigWorld”

Can I Phone A Friend? The agony of making parenting decisions

I’ve always considered myself to be a pretty decisive person; headstrong, a ‘do-er’, not one to mess around. But when it comes to my kids and making decisions about them, it seems I’ve become a bit of a wet lettuce. more “Can I Phone A Friend? The agony of making parenting decisions”

Raising our daughters to be the future Women In Science #STEM

I’ve always been incredibly proud of my previous career in the science industry, and am learning to take the same pride in my new found work as a blogger. But what if somehow I could link the two? Wouldn’t that be the dream? As a parent of two daughters, let me start by talking about the importance of Women in science. more “Raising our daughters to be the future Women In Science #STEM”
