With my trip to England coming up I've been sorting through my clothes deciding what to take with me. It's still 13 days away but I like to do this inital sweep of my closet in advance - just incase i have to go shopping 😀 My closet here is pretty big. I chose the … Continue reading My Florida Style
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'm … Continue reading England Excitement!
Its been a month now since all the children started full time school and people often ask me what I'm doing with myself ? Well, I'm a routine person so after leaving the loose routine of our #12weeksofsummer I found myself carving out a new routine just for me - Monday to Friday 8.30 till … Continue reading Day in the life of….
Once Rob and I started sharing news of our move to Florida we were asked frequently if we were worried about hurricanes. No, was our response. Rob had already researched this and the north east coast where we were headed had few hurricanes in the last century and all low category. Nothing to be scared … Continue reading Being a brummie in Floridas hurricane season
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.

Parents … Continue reading Travelling with a Special needs child

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- how … Continue 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 am … Continue reading New starts
Well the title says it all. This is the week. Our 12 weeks of summer are over once again. They have honestly been good. A lot of fun but also a lot of hard work and I still think they are at least 3 weeks too long! Mumming full time to 3 kids that … Continue reading Back to School
