Water Babies update! #collab

Abel turns 5!

First of all how is Abel 5 already?! I started this blog when he wasn’t even 1! Time goes too fast.  I wanted to do a post on his birthday celebrations this year (well last year now…) as it is the first year we have […]

swimming lessons with Water Babies #collab

So this probably isn’t the first thing you expect to read on a review of swimming lessons but… I hate swimming. When I was little I loved it but over time I just gradually lost any enjoyment from it and in recent years have barely went […]

Sharing a room – 4 & 1 years

I’ve been meaning to do a post on the kids room for soooo long but as always I have taken forever to get round to it (mostly because it’s never this tidy for decent pictures!). I get asked a lot how it is space wise, […]

The Only Girl in the House

The Only Girl in the House

I am wholly outnumbered in my own home. It is an entirely unfair 4-1 divide of the sexes. There is my partner Colin, my two sons Ruairidh and Harrison and even our pet rat Remy is a boy. Yes there are times where I would […]
