8.26am Tuesday morning sat on the sofa just me & Teddy. No children around means 1 thing - school is back in session!! 12 weeks in the Florida heat is rough. This was our 4th summer break since moving stateside and it doesn't get any easier. This summer will be remembered for the bickering 🤣 … Continue reading Back to School 2019
Our 3 week England trip began 16th December 2018. We were travelling back to the UK to renew our current immigration visas. The kids schools longest break is the summer and by then the visas would have expired, so the Christmas break was the next best time to go, even though we were fully expecting … Continue reading England

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 often … Continue reading Why I always say yes!
I've had a bad day with Poppy today. A sentence I've been using for the last few weeks, months, years. Through the newborn feeding, the toddler tantrums and still now at 9 years old.
