I leave for England in 17 days. My first solo trip back home is for a wedding, one I would never miss. I was last there August 2017. 14 months since I sat on my parents sofa, wandered around the shops, ate a decent bacon sarnie and most importantly hung out with my besties. I’mContinue reading “England Excitement!”

US school vs UK school
I’ve been an American school mum for almost as long as an English school mum. 3 years in England and 2 in Florida. The schools are so different! The kids however, are equally happy in either. When we were offered a transfer to Jacksonville we didn’t initially say yes. We needed to consider how aContinue reading “US school vs UK school”
To start with we faked Leo’s birthday this year to save him from having a boring day! Leo turned 5 on 21st August. We celebrated 19th August. His actual birthday was a Tuesday. We leave our house at 7.30am after at least 1 pre school tantrum from Poppy. So that was my first issue- howContinue reading “Birthday boy!”
All 3 are in school. All day long, every day!! How did this happen ?? I’m sure Leo was just born 5 minutes ago not almost 5 years ago. To think if we were still in England I would have already let my last baby go. Definite pros and cons to this, but I amContinue reading “New starts”
Hi all, last week we went on a family shopping trip to target as it was a rainy day and the kids had been promised a toy. I decided to have a go at creating a vlog about what we bought the kids to go along with my shopping blogs. ☝️ there’s the link! IContinue reading “Target Vlog!”
American shops, all the shops seen on films, tv shows or in my case pinterest, all the time! I used to see something I liked on pinterest – you could guarantee it was from an American shop! Well now those shops are at my finger tips. Moving over to Florida I had to find aContinue reading “Stateside Shopping!”
Surviving the summer!
This is a follow up blog to my #12weeksofsummer I published back in June. As the Uk are just starting their summer break of 6 weeks thought I would post a few tips to help along the way and also as a way for me to refocus and rock the last 19 days of schoolContinue reading “Surviving the summer!”
Why I always say yes!
Look at those smiling faces! That’s why I always say yes!! This weeks request was tie dye. Not something we’ve done before but apparently you tube makes it look very easy and lots of fun. We all know I’m not a fan of mess and throw a sensory child into the mix and we’ve oftenContinue reading “Why I always say yes!”
All you do is clean
My 8 year old Izzy said to me yesterday “You never play with us, all you do is clean” To put into context the kids had been asking when would daddy be home from work so they had someone to play with. Now all who know me, know I do enjoy a good clean! I’veContinue reading “All you do is clean”
My parents are over in Jax for 2 weeks and whilst they’re here we like to get out of Nocatee and start exploring. We’ve done Orlando a few times, tarpon springs and Treasure Island so far. This holiday we decided to head North. My parents normally come out around Nov/ Dec and we head westContinue reading “Mini Vacay”
