To My Lovely Readers….

I’ve been writing another blog for almost 3 months now and I think that I’m finally ready to say goodbye to 3 Children and It. I couldn’t completely remove myself at first but you’ve probably noticed how little I’ve been writing here of late. There will therefore not be any new posts on this blog. Instead, […] Read more…

Life Lately

I’m not sure how to start this post, other than to say ‘hello’. It’s been a while hasn’t it? Having had a two month break from blogging, I’ve realised just how much I miss writing. I know people jokingly call it ‘online therapy’ but you know what? I really have relied on this space over the last […] Read more…

Adieu

This is a post I wasn’t expecting to write. Not now anyway. But I think it’s finally time. To stop this blog. If I’m honest, I think this has been brewing for a while but the time feels right. My family are growing up and I need to start learning to be something other than a mum. When I […] Read more…

When is it time to stop blogging?

If there’s one question that has plagued me more than any other throughout the last 4 years, it is this: I don’t think I’m the only family blogger who has felt challenged by this and definitely will not be the last. I know many who have stopped for this reason and others who have continued […] Read more…

Loud 'n' Proud

Loud ‘n’ Proud 2

I’ve been running this linky for almost two years now and love it. Why? Because it’s a shameless excuse to big someone up; someone who deserves recognition. Often that ‘someone’ is one of my children but not always. On occasion I like to share something that I have done to be proud of and sometimes, it’s even my […] Read more…

Permission to Take Leave 

When you want to take your child out of school, or book a day’s holiday from work, a permission slip is required. A signature from the person in charge to say that it’s ok, you’re allowed, and you’ve gone through the correct channels to seek that permission. But what about when you want time off as […] Read more…

MAD? Apparently So.

I made a mental decision not to put my blog forward for the awards this year. Not that I don’t appreciate the recognition or support from my readers you understand, on the contrary…. Last year, to my delight, I found myself in the finals of both the BiBs for Best Family Blog and the MADS for Best School […] Read more…

Funny Face

My Two Penneth

Like most places in life, the blogging world is not without its dramas. Most of these little episodes pass me by to be honest, but on occasion, something is brought to my attention and I can’t resist adding my two penneth. I know I’m late to the party on this one, but there has been […] Read more…

Why I’m Not Asking For Your Vote in the Blog Awards.

I’ve written this post in my head numerous times, dismissing it without putting finger to keyboard. Why? Well you may recall a post I wrote last month, where I divulged my achilles heel as far as blogging is concerned – pride. I talked about not winning in the BiBs or the MADs (blogging awards) last […] Read more…

Friday Favourites

Friday Favourites – April 2015

This little Friday Favourites slot is fast becoming a strong focus for my month. Sharing great content and not keeping it to myself is an important part of blogging for me. Sharing is caring, right? Last week, I found myself on the receiving end of this sentiment, when one post was shared more than 1000 times on Facebook and […] Read more…

Don't let your blog drive you.

Surprise! Three Years and I’m Still here….

Well whad’ya know? Last week this little piece of cyberspace celebrated its third birthday *blows out candles*. If you’ve ever taken up a hobby that you simply adore, then you will understand when I say that I cannot remember life before this blog. Like having a new child, it’s conjured up a whole mix of emotions, from […] Read more…

In Defence of Over-sharing

Over-sharing is one of those words. A buzz word that seems to be doing the rounds at the moment. In a few years time, I imagine it will have its very own spot in the Oxford English Dictionary, nestled nicely in between ‘selfie’ and ‘lol’ (my current pet hate!). For some reason, ‘over-sharing’ has been given a pretty […] Read more…

Friday Favourites is Back!

Firstly, I would like to offer up an apology….. I started this Friday Favourites series with all good intentions and much like many things I undertake, I lost momentum about 12 months in (just ask my husband, I’m a nightmare for this!). I think it happened during the summer when I took my eye off the ball for one reason […] Read more…

London Eye at Dusk

The Week That Was / Project 365 Week 38

Late again *slaps own wrist*. I have a good excuse though…. I went to the MAD Blog Awards on Friday, spent Saturday lunching in London with two special friends, bought a new outfit in Covent Garden and by the time I returned home to my lovely family, I only had enough energy to flop in […] Read more…
