Turning From a Toddler Into a Threenager

Today my youngest daughter turns the grand old age of three and I would like to know where the last year went? It seems like yesterday when my baby was turning into a toddler. I'm happy to report that we've survived the terrible two's (just) and now we are venturing into the year of the threenager.


Having had three other children you would think that I'd be fully prepared for what lies ahead but I can tell you that I am certainly not.

Read With Me #30

Hello, welcome to this weeks Read With Me :) So the Summer holidays have officially begun for us and I am now trying to decide which is the best day to take all the kids down the library.

I'm used to taking just the one child with me, might be a tad noisier with four but I'm eager to start our Summer Reading challenge.

I've actually caught the reading bug again, managing to read 8 books in the past 2 weeks.

There have been moments where my kids and I have all been reading at the same time, would be a funny sight to some I'm sure!

One of my favourite reads was Imperfect Chemistry by Mary Frame. A real light hearted read that if you don't take too seriously will have you laughing out loud. Summer reading at its best I'd say.

Project 365 2015 Week 30

Week 30 of project 365 and this is the first day of our Summer holidays. I've been on count down for this for what seems like forever. This last term at school has dragged for both myself and the kids, I think we were all more than ready for a break from it all.

Day 200

Making the most of the sunshine.

Driving, Not As Easy As You'd Think

I got my provisional driving licence way back when I turned 16 years old, that's nearly 14 years ago, don't go trying to work out my age now will you!! Well it took me until 2011 to actually start taking driving lesson, lets just say life got in the way.

Turns out my little brother and I decided to start learning to drive at around the same time so we were in competition with each other as to who could pass first and how many attempts it would take us. The not so little pip squeek beat me, managing to pass first time.

Eat, Sleep, Reflect, Repeat

A few years back that title would have definitely said eat, sleep, rave, repeat. I was no stranger to staying up all night and going straight into work the next day so actually scratch that eat, rave, repeat.

However times have changed, my lifestyle is no longer the same. With four kids raving is no longer an option, not sure I could stay awake to do it anyway but my evenings are somewhat different. Once the day is done and the kids have all been fed, washed and put to bed, I find time to silently reflect on things.

Homemade Fruity Ice Lollies

Summer is finally here, hooray!!! So of course the kids like nothing better than eating lots of ice cream to cool them down. I've already shared a couple of recipes which are healthier alternatives such as my frozen yogurt but when I spotted the below ice lolly moulds in Tiger a couple of weeks ago I felt the need to come up with some healthier calypo like recipes.
