“To-to-ro? You're Totoro!... I bet you're Totoro...”

The house is starting to feel less holiday home and more homey now.
I'm slowly getting the boys rooms to how I want them to be.
The twins and Noah are a bit more picky than Ru, so when it comes to his room I get to have a little more fun and I'm able to put my stamp on it rather than be told it must be Pokemon or some sort of superhero.


One of my favourite films is My Neighbour Totoro.
After browsing amazon late one night I came across some Totoro wall stickers and instantly knew they would be perfect for Rupert's new room.

One has finally arrived and I couldn't wait to put it up!
Ru himself wasn't too fussed but I love it, and I'll have to keep showing him film in hopes he finally clicks and loves it as much as I do.

My 2017 Goals

I wasn't planning on sharing my goals for 2017, but then I thought why not!
Im without a planner at the moment, so this really is the next best thing.
You'll be able to see it and i'll know where my list is!



I'm not going to put things like lose weight or get fit...as those are boring and never actually really get achieved.

1. Find out more about becoming a Midwife/start a nurses access course.
I've decided I want to follow in my mums footsteps and become a midwife, and with Jon working from home I'm able to get going on this before Rupert starts school.

2. Get Rupert into a proper routine / change my way of parenting as its not working for him.

3. Spend less time on Instagram and more time enjoying being with my boys.
Im forever with my head in my phone, watching other peoples moments and sometimes missing out on my own moments.
Of course ill still be posting, but probably not as much.

4. Get out more.
There's so much to do around here it would be a shame to stay stuck indoors once the boys go back to school.

5. Have more me time.
One thing that I kinda started in 2016 was to make sure I take the time to look after me and do more things just for me.

6. Stop comparing myself and blog to others, enjoy what I'm doing and know that whatever I'm doing is actually working!

For now I think thats probably it, I may add to it over the year but I think for now thats enough.

Do you have any New Year goals?






Win A Family Ticket To In The Night Garden Live .....



In the Night Garden Live is back for 2017 and I am offering you a chance to win a family ticket!

In The Night Garden has been loved by all the boys including Noah.
 They've all enjoyed watching the adventures of Igglepiggle and Upsy Daisy.

Rupert is the only one left now who still has a strong love for the show, and enjoys cuddling up to his bedtime Igglepiggle!




Im so pleased that im able to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a family ticket to go and watch this magical show!

See Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy and Makka Pakka brought to life before your eyes with beautiful costumes, magical puppets, enchanting music, and breathtaking projections that make it feel like you're actually in the Night Garden.
There are two different shows to choose from. Each one lasts just under an hour and follows a different story.
In the Ninky Nonk show, Igglepiggle loses his blanket and all his friends help him find it.
In the Pinky Ponk show, Makka Pakka washes everyone’s faces, until his sponge gets stuck in Upsy Daisy’s megaphone!
All the characters appear in both shows, and both are equally popular.
