Back in January 2017 I hit publish on a post…“The little white lies of parenthood”. It’s occurred to me that as I’ve continued on my journey of raising girls, I’ve raised a few more urban myths along the way.
Back to school, whether you love choosing all new stationary for the kids, or simply dread the back to school shop, getting everything ready for September after 6 weeks of summer fun can seem like a daunting task. After weeks of late evenings, BBQs, days at the beach and family time the regiment of school can suddenly creep up on us! So, what can you do to be more organised this time round? more “6 ways to be more organised this school term”
Now that the summer holidays have drawn to a close, it’s inevitable that we start to look back and polish those memories into a gorgeous rose tint.

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”
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.
