Erin’s First Day At Nursery

4th January was a pretty big day for our family. This was the day that Erin had her first day at nursery. Well, I guess it wasn’t her first real day as it was only the first of two settling in sessions and I didn’t actually leave her there but to me, it felt like the first day. I had been preparing for this day for months and months but I was never actually prepared for how I would feel about it. The day didn’t start well. Erin had a bit of a melt down about leaving the house and

The Post Christmas Toy Cull

In any normal family with children you know that you’re going to end up with way more toys than you have room for. We’re lucky to have a fairly nice sized house, not massive by any means but probably bigger than we really need. However, when your child’s birthday is on New Year’s Day, you end up with a crazy amount of toys in a very short space of time.

However, moving to Norfolk certainly changed who I am and now I want to be out there with her. I’ll still scream at a wasp or bee but I’m much better than I used to be.┬áThe problem with having a child who loves to be outside is that they want to do that whether it’s warm, cold, snowing or raining. They don’t care! Luckily, Erin was sent a a great set

The Blogger’s Daughter

As a blogger, I have my camera out a lot. In fact, I have it to hand most of the time and I never leave the house without either having my Canon PowerShot G7X Mark II or my phone. Erin has grown up around a camera and I guess she’s just grown up getting used to pictures being taken of her. That’s really no different to any normal family wanting to document their child growing up. The difference is Erin’s photos are all over the internet. Erin is just coming up to being 2 and she’s just starting to realise
