Moments that mattered 2013

Last year started with a bang for us and probably the event that will mark 2013 as a great year for us was the arrival of our cheeky little chappy Jelly Bean on 31st January.  After Beanie Boy we didn’t think we would have any more children but as often as I would tell people . . . → Read More: Moments that mattered in 2013

Do your children choose their own bedroom decor?

Playroom

When we moved the children’s rooms around in preparation for the arrival of Jelly Bean we asked each of them how they would like their bedrooms decorated.  We gave them as much ‘free choice’ with their rooms as we possibly could, depending on how expensive their ideas became.  Our philosophy was that they need to . . . → Read More: Do your children choose their own bedroom decor?

October Half Term 2013 – Thursday

Mummy Matters

Hubby went back to work for the day today but dare I say it, we didn’t miss him.  Now that’s not being mean, we had already made plans to spend the day with our friends MumtoC and MasterC.  When Little Bean got dressed this morning I had to laugh as she reached for her . . . → Read More: October Half Term 2013 – Thursday

What ordinary family moments do you look forward to?

Ordinary moments

If you have children then you can pretty much guarantee your life will be far from mundane.  Children have this way of livening things up, bringing joy to some of the most uneventful activities.  Playing on a swing isn’t just playing on a swing, it’s a rope in the jungle getting . . . → Read More: What ordinary family moments do you look forward to?

When the sun is shining . . .

ParkLife

When the sun is shining I hate being stuck indoors, it seems like such a waste of a day so today after collecting Little Bean from school we made a pit stop to the park.  Since Jelly Bean has arrived our days are governed by Jelly Bean’s feeds, naps and more latterly me having . . . → Read More: When the sun is shining . . .

He’s my big boy now . . .

growing up

Oh come on you dirty minded lot, what sort of picture were you expecting to see here?  Of course, I’m talking about my little Beanie Boy who as from January will no longer be the baby of the family.  This week we have been busy getting ready for our new arrival due in the . . . → Read More: He’s my big boy now . . .

A Family Photo Shoot

Every year I like to update our family photos around the house, the children grow so fast and change so much in a year that I want as many memories of them around as possible.  In the past, other than the photographs that I have taken of the children myself we tend to go for . . . → Read More: A Family Photo Shoot

I love being a Mummy

For as long as I can remember I dreamed of one day becoming a Mummy, ‘three’ was always my magic number, the number of children I wanted to have.  I don’t know why three exactly, because most people who I know that came from a family of three said that it was pretty rubbish, two . . . → Read More: I love being a Mummy

071/366 – Family Time!!

We all seem to have been so busy with one thing or another these last couple of weeks that we haven’t really spent much time together as a whole family, it’s always been me with the one or two of the children or Hubby with all of them so today we finally made some . . . → Read More: 071/366 – Family Time!!

052/366 – Happy Birthday Sis!

Ok I admit it, I’m rubbish!  Half way through the afternoon I realised that today was my sister’s birthday and this is appalling when you consider that she was only in my house less than 48 hours ago.

I only met my sister less than 3 years ago, until that time we didn’t know . . . → Read More: 052/366 – Happy Birthday Sis!
