Planning a Trip to Disneyland for a 30th Birthday

Ok, so as you probably know, I am turning 30 in just a couple of months at the beginning of May. I had been torn when it came to making a decision on how to celebrate this milestone birthday, as I had so many things I would like to do, but it simply wasn’t feasible to do some of them (Santorini, for example, was not only out of budget, but...

5 Things I Have Planned to Celebrate My Birthday

I turn 29 in just under a month’s time on May 2nd. This birthday seems quite significant as it marks the last year of my twenties, and I am feeling a little apprehensive. For this reason, and the fact that I always love to spread my birthday out for as long as physically possible, I am celebrating across two weeks. There is another reason. Ed has a martial arts course...

Mummy Mondays – The Kingdom of Carly – Another Wonderbly Birthday!

Last Thursday my not so little girl turned five! She’s always felt like my baby, even when I went on to have Benjamin last year, so it has been strange adjusting to her starting school recently. In the past couple of months she’s really grown up and I was so proud when her teacher told me she was a pleasure to have in the class, and that Carly is really...

My Monthly Plans – September 

As you’ll know by now, I’m currently away in Santorini. It was really weird scheduling this post, knowing that by the time it went live I will have already been out here for a few days and will be getting married in the morning (eek!).  September is obviously very exciting for us, not only because of our holiday and wedding but it also sees Carly start school for the first...

My Monthly Plans – May 

I’m writing this from my bed, where I’m recovering from my absolutely amazing but totally tiring hen weekend (I do also have a small self inflicted hangover, which is stopping me from getting up and enjoying the bank holiday Monday rain).  April, like most months this year, flew by, and my birthday month has come round quicker than ever. I’m really excited for this month as it begins with my...

May Plans 

So it’s May, which means it’s also my birthday tomorrow, eek! Can’t really believe we are already nearing half way through 2016 but then time passing quickly is always a good thing when you’re pregnant as that can really drag! I don’t have a lot of plans for this month, mainly as we are still manically saving for the wedding and every spare penny is going towards that, but we...

All Fired Up – Pottery Painting Cafe – Review 

For my sister’s birthday the weekend before last, we went to All Fired Up in Bournemouth town centre to paint some pottery. Having been there before, we knew what to expect, and we weren’t disappointed. The cafe provides the perfect base for friends/families to come and relax, paint something and have food and drink if they want.  It is advisable to book, especially for a Saturday as when we got there...

Carly Turns 3 

I feel like I’ve been telling people Carly’s almost or nearly three for ages now. She has a brilliant vocabulary for her age and such a strong character. Everyone always says how hilarious she is, especially at nursery where she is apparently the boss, despite being one of the younger children there.     As Carly had been with me in Paris for the weekend (where we were originally spending 3...
