From the day your little bundle (or bundles in my case) is placed into your arms, you worry. Worry about every single decision you make, everything you say, everything you do. The one thing you are always worrying about is their health. I know throughout my pregnancy with the girls, I spent hours searching about twins and googling every symptom. We were told early on that they were measuring different sizes and I continually worried about their health when they were born. I have to say as a whole, my kids don’t get ill very often. We had the odd…

As Butlin’s ambassadors, we spent our February half term at Butlin’s in Minehead. We first visited Butlin’s in Bognor Regis back in May 2016 (you can read my Butlin’s Bognor Regis review here) so we were excited to be trying out a different resort. This time we were staying in the West Lakes Village which has the new style chalets. This post is all about our accommodation and I’ll be doing another post all about what we got up to next week. The West Lakes Village has it’s own separate check in office. We arrived around 1.15pm after having lunch…

I’ve mentioned before about how my husband predominately works away during the week. We go to bed Sunday evening and he usually leaves around 4am meaning we don’t see him until around 5-6pm on a Friday. This is how it’s been pretty much our entire relationship and it’s one we are all used to. Last week, we all headed off to Butlin’s for our second ambassador trip meaning that Daddy was home for 9 whole days! It’s interesting to see that the kids quickly gravitate towards him when he’s at home for “long” chunks of time. For me, it’s lovely…

As a parent, you can often find yourself focusing on what you may perceive as parenting fails; you fret over the days where you shouted a lot, gave them chicken nuggets and chips again, you didn’t clear your laundry basket or you were too shattered to play pretend doggies for the nineteenth time. It sometimes is easier to focus on the negatives then stop and celebrate your parenting wins. As parents you are on duty 24/7 from the second the word “positive” pops up on a pregnancy test. Even when you aren’t with them physically, your mind never stops.

I realised that I haven’t really shared many of my Disneyland Paris photos with you all despite many of you asking to see them. I thought I’d share my ten favourite Disneyland Paris PhotoPass+ photos from our trip. We paid for our PhotoPass before we travelled through our travel agents but you can buy a PhotoPass in the Disneyland Paris park. Most of the shops sell them and they cost around £45.

Following on from my favourite posts of 2016 part one, here is part two with more brilliant bloggers! Bloggers who actually educate you and can forge the way for making changes and making people think differently make me proud to be part of the community. Stevie from A Cornish Mum did this amazingly with her Open Letter to the BBC regarding type 1 diabetes which made people stand up and listen. She really has made me realise the enormity of type 1 and I think she’s amazing how she handles it and spreads the message so brilliantly.

I love a good roundup of posts. There are so many blogs out there that it can be impossible to read them all, so I thought I’d plop them all in one place for you to enjoy with the leftover turkey and chocolates. You’re welcome! All Touched Out by Harriet from Toby and Roo, is an ode to randy partners wanting to have a little grope but after an exhausting day parenting and especially with a breastfeeding toddler, it’s the last thing on our minds! So funny but so true – one to tag your partners in for a gentle…
