Pizza Swirls


As you know Emily and I absolutely love to be in the kitchen, baking, cooking or rustling up something yummy. For her fourth birthday, the only thing that she asked for was a new cookbook, which of course I got for her. We are yet to bake anything from it, but Emily has asked that we make sausage casserole next week which is one of the recipes from her new cookbook. We have been trying to come up with some quick and easy dinner ideas at the moment though. Wednesday is one of our busiest days, we are out from 1ish till about 5. So dinner is always a mad rush on a Wednesday. I have been trying to make use of my slow cooker, but Emily isn't really keen on filling dinners. She tends to fill herself up at lunchtime and then want a snackish type dinner.

Crunching & Collecting Leaves


You know when you just wake up, and your in one of those 'I can't be bothered to do anything moods' - well I woke up like that, and decided rather than giving in to it, I was going to get up, get dressed and get out. I put a casserole into the slow cooker, got us all dressed and headed out the door. It did me wonders, it literally turned my whole day around. I had plans to make some autumn themed homemade playdough with the girls, and we had already picked up conkers and acorns. The only thing that was left for us to collect was some crunchy leaves. 

Autumn Wish List

With the colder weather approaching, its been time to pull out all of the chunky knitwear from last year, while I do have few lovely items from last year I do need to buy a few more pieces as I'm seriously lacking warmer clothing. Simply be seem to be my go-to shop when I'm looking for items of clothing, its a brand that I have always shopped with, and I find that there clothing is good quality and lasts a little while. I thought I'd share with you the few things I have been lusting over lately.

Guess who's back.. back again!


I’ve been staring at a blank screen for approximately 20 minutes now, thinking about how I should start this blog post, what I should say or how I should word it. The thing is, I feel a little bit lost with my blog at the moment. I love my little corner of the internet, being able to document and keep all of my girl's memories in one place to look back on when they’re grown - but somewhere down the line, I seem to have lost my spark a little. I haven’t posted on here in months, and when I have it’s been half-hearted or quick, then I’ve shut my laptop down again. I enjoy taking pictures of the girls, and having somewhere to share them, but lately, I just don’t think I’ve been in the right mind space to share. 

Tinky Winky Sensory Soft Toy [review]


Emily is a little television addict, she would happily sit and watch it all day long if we let her, Isabelle seems to have followed in her footsteps. One of Isabelle's favourite programs to watch is Teletubbies. She is a little bit obsessed with Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Lala and Po. Just like her big sister was. When we were contacted by Character Online to review an amazing new toy from their Teletubbies range, I knew that Isabelle would absolutely love adding a new Teletubbies to her collection so of course, I said yes.

Happy 4th Birthday Emily!


Dearest Emily,

I can’t quite believe that we have a four-year-old, I’m not sure how we got here so fast but I couldn’t imagine you being any different to how you are now. Your independent, loyal, loving and caring. Your little sister is your best friend and it seems that you will do everything with her, and even include her in the activities that are a little too big for her - which melts my heart. I love how much you love her, and I know that she loves you just as much as you do her.
