A day at Tayto Park.

Hi there! I have been a bit rubbish at keeping up to date on the blog with our days out this summer. We have been busy going here and there and come the evenings when the kids are in bed, I’m just too tired to think about writing up a wee post on here. We… Continue reading A day at Tayto Park.

A day at Pickie Park!

Yesterday was the first day of the holidays for us as a family of 5. We are incredibly lucky that Mr. Making Memories is a primary school teacher and we get to spend 8 long weeks together as a family every summer. We don’t have any big holiday plans this year – we have a… Continue reading A day at Pickie Park!

My little bear is a whole big 4!

This little man turned 4 years old on 11th June and it really was a milestone moment for me. I don’t know what it is about 4, but it gets to me. It tugs my heart strings. I think, for me, it feels like the end of a chapter, the end of an era. It… Continue reading My little bear is a whole big 4!

To my darling little 3 year old.

I’m a little late in getting this post typed up. I had intended to do it on the day of her birthday, but honestly, June has been one crazy, busy month, and I just couldn’t seem to find the time to sit down and type! But, at the moment, S and L have gone down… Continue reading To my darling little 3 year old.

Sometimes life throws you a curved ball, which not only leaves you a little shaken, but also leaves you feeling pensive and reflective and forces you to take stock of what really matters in life. There has been so much talk on social media and on the news and splashed across newspapers and magazines lately about… Continue reading Two are better than one.

Afternoon Tea at Maison de Bov!

Yesterday an extra little 5 minutes turned something very ordinary and routine into something that little bit extra-ordinary and special. A little background info first though. At the weekend little S bear woke up with a bad cough. He and J and their daddy stayed at home on Sunday morning to take it easy, hoping… Continue reading Afternoon Tea at Maison de Bov!

All a glow!

Last Thursday evening we had the most beautiful little family evening at The Argory ‘All a Glow’ event. I had been a little nervous about taking the kiddies to Afternoon Tea in such a beautiful venue.  After booking I started regretting it, thinking that we would be the family that ruined it for everyone! 3 kiddies… Continue reading All a glow!

A date with my 4 year old.

Last Friday, J said to me, “Do you want to go on a date with me, Mummy? You can have anything you want on the page!” What else could a girl possibly say but, “J, I would absolutely love to!” For 2 years now, as a family we have been having “Dates” with our kids.… Continue reading A date with my 4 year old.

J and S remembered the day from last year and were really looking forward to it and little L was very excited about all the wonderful ‘pumptkins’. (I love toddler chat!) After… Continue reading Picnics, pumpkins….pensive.
