A visit to Snowshill Manor and gardens

When the sun was shining last weekend we decided to get out of the house and go exploring for the day. We packed a picnic and opened our National Trust handbook to see where we could go nearby, we chose to head to Snowshill Manor and gardens somewhere we hadn't explored before. A Tudor manor house owned by the collector Charles Wade and used to store all his collections while he lived in the priest house in the courtyard.

What the Little Ones wear- Here kitty kitty


There is one dress in Little 2's wardrobe that got worn again and again and again all through the winter and on into the spring, now sadly after shooting up recently it has gotten too small for her. It is this one, a mock pinafore kitty dress, admittedly again from Lilly and Sid, but I did say that a lot of the Little Ones current wardrobes come from them right now!

Potty training out and about with Dry Like Me

We first began Potty training Little 3 over the Easter holidays and although we stayed in for the first day or two we didn't want to be stuck inside for a whole week while Little 3 was getting the hang of it all. Dry like Me offered us the perfect solution, they kindly sent us some of their award winning potty training pads for Little 3 to try out and so we put them to the test.

What the Little Ones wear- glitter and unicorns

Little 2 likes glittery clothes at the minute, she is still very much into the princess and dressing up age and likes to look pretty with glitzy hair bands, shimmery body lotion and loves it when she feels as though she has a bit of sparkle.

A potty training toddler, a week on

If you read my post 'It is time for big boy pants!' then you will know that the past couple of weeks we have been attempting to toilet train Little 3. 'Attempting' was the word the first few days when things really didn't seen to be going all that well and I was beginning to think 'perhaps, he isn't ready yet' even though I had been sure he was.

I can do it myself (review)

Now that he is two years old Little 3 has suddenly had another developmental surge and begun to develop a taste for independence. 'Me do it' is a very common phrase these days as he wants to have a go at doing things himself.

He has started to try and dress himself by pulling things over his head and has recently become very good at putting on his own pants and trousers after showing no interest at all in doing it a few weeks ago. He tries really hard to put on his socks and shoes but can not do it at all yet, he will try for quite some time before giving up and asking for help if there is time for me to let him have a go himself.

A super sunny Easter trip to Cornwall

Now that we have been back at school (myself included) the past few days I have had time to think about the super Easter holidays that we have just had, normally we don't do anything at Easter as Daddy is working but this year we did things differently, Daddy took a week off and we had such a good time.

After returning from a long weekend at Butlins celebrating Daddy's 40th birthday with family we spent a few days at home together, an afternoon doing an Easter duck hunt at the local wetlands centre and exploring a new National Trust house near us too. 

We then had the opportunity to join friends in Cornwall for bank holiday weekend and decided to go, we were so glad that we did.

What the Little Ones wear- Gorgeous girlie dresses from Lilly & Sid

If you ask the girls what they want to wear the answer every day, almost certainly, will be a dress. A dress and tights for Little 2 (she loves choosing tights to match her dress) and just a dress for Little 1 who can sometimes be persuaded to wear a pair of cropped leggings underneath if it is colder (she doesn't really like tights).
