My baby is looking suspiciously like a little girl in this photo... I am going to dress her in a babgro and rock her like a newborn as soon as we get home. I'll probably get a headbutt and a finger in the eye for my troubles, but I'm doing it anyway. I don't care. #stopgrowing #itgoestooquick #alwaysmybaby ______________________________________#childhoodunplugged #candidchildhood #fiercelittleones #clickinmoms #parenting #inspiremyinstagram #seizetheshot #thehappynow #littlestoriesofmylife #momlife #parent #boys #forahappymoment #postitfortheaesthetic #parenthood_unveiled #todaysgoodthing #visualsoflife #liveauthentic #letthembelittle #ukkids #kent #momtogs #momswithcameras #cameramama #kidsforreal #peoplescreatives #visualsoflife #ig_motherhood

Home is where the crazies are - and night one is ticked off in our new home. They all went to sleep well - and apart from a 3am call-out from Mabel ('Guys, I've woken up in a strange room and I need to know you big people are somewhere in this house), they all slept amazingly well. We were then woken up by two boys running around their room and playroom rediscovering all their toys. Note to self: Nerf Guns need to be re-confiscated again pronto.______________________________________#childhoodunplugged #candidchildhood #fiercelittleones #clickinmoms #parenting #inspiremyinstagram #seizetheshot #thehappynow #littlestoriesofmylife #momlife #parent #boys #forahappymoment #postitfortheaesthetic #parenthood_unveiled #todaysgoodthing #visualsoflife #liveauthentic #letthembelittle #ukkids #kent #momtogs #momswithcameras #cameramama #kidsforreal #peoplescreatives #visualsoflife #ig_motherhood

5 months - and 156 days - ago, we flew back to my parents' house for summer - and finally, we're leaving them in peace. So this afternoon, we left some champagne so they could pop the cork as soon as the car reversed out of the driveway ๐Ÿ˜‚ Resettling in the UK would've been a thousand times harder without my parents and my inlaws - and I'm sure they're going to enjoy later mornings and a quiet house between the hours of 5-7pm... But we'll be back in a week for Christmas, so I hope don't get too used to it parents! ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜‚ (is it rude to say 'save us a glass?' probably, OK, crack on...)

Baby Santa is very angry because he is not 'Baby Santa' or 'Little Santa', he is just 'Santa'. And if you call him 'Baby Santa' or 'Little Santa', he will get very angry. Because he is not a baby, nor is he little. He is three. And big. And therefore, just to clarify, he is just 'Santa'.#threenager #dontmess #wilfred #justwilf

One year ago today, we flew home from Dubai for Christmas - and my summer baby transformed into a bunny ๐Ÿฐ Meanwhile, 12 months later, she is finally about to move into her first bedroom. One sleep until we officially move into our new home - and let's hope that the bunny decides she's happy in her room and sleeps... ______________________________________#childhoodunplugged #candidchildhood #fiercelittleones #clickinmoms #parenting #inspiremyinstagram #seizetheshot #thehappynow #littlestoriesofmylife #momlife #parent #boys #forahappymoment #postitfortheaesthetic #parenthood_unveiled #todaysgoodthing #visualsoflife #liveauthentic #letthembelittle #ukkids #kent #momtogs #momswithcameras #cameramama #kidsforreal #peoplescreatives #visualsoflife #ig_motherhood

Dubai Mummies, I can personally vouch for the fact that Little Stream Nursery have the *BEST* kid's camps - so I am delighted to team up with them to tell you about their Winter Camp from 17th December-4th January. It sounds amazing and we wish we could be there (rather than freezing in -3'C ๐Ÿ˜ฉ) Book a spot for your little ones now by emailing hello@littlestreamnursery.com or calling โ€ญ+971 56 567 8282โ€ฌ (for info over on Insta-Stories)... #DubaiMummies #WinterCamp #Collab

Life is a bit crazy at the moment, to say the least. But then we are moving into a new house a few weeks from Christmas, so what do we expect? I was so organised doing my Christmas shopping online by the beginning of December, but they've since sat in boxes and I haven't wrapped a single thing. We also decided to repaint our entire house and I somehow have to find places for all our belongings, despite no built-in storage and very little that we own. The kids break up from school on Wednesday, so bang goes our childcare too - so we're on a deadline now and we really, really want to be in the house by Thursday. That means I am currently covered in paint and less than Instagram-ready - so here is a picture of the family pickle instead ๐Ÿ’•See you on the other side - from my own sofa, for the first time in nearly 6 months ๐Ÿก______________________________________#childhoodunplugged #candidchildhood #fiercelittleones #clickinmoms #parenting #inspiremyinstagram #seizetheshot #thehappynow #littlestoriesofmylife #momlife #parent #boys #forahappymoment #postitfortheaesthetic #parenthood_unveiled #todaysgoodthing #visualsoflife #liveauthentic #letthembelittle #ukkids #kent #momtogs #momswithcameras #cameramama #kidsforreal #peoplescreatives #visualsoflife #ig_motherhood #14monthsold #mabelbeatrix #mabelwearstoday

So we braved gale force winds today to do a booze cruise in Calais for Christmas. The fact I even wrote that sentence is surreal, because I wasn't really even allowed to write about booze as a Dubai blogger, let alone document my journey to seek it out, but there we go... It was fun! And windy! But mainly fun! Pleased to be home now as the ferries and shuttles are all delayed by a million years thanks to the windy conditions. But I have LOTS of prosecco, so we're all good (head over to Insta-stories for more) ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿพ

Dubai Mums, I have some exciting news when it comes to online gift shopping - as @giftslessordinary is now available throughout the UAE. This website has over 6,000 handpicked, unique, personalised gifts to pick from - and delivery to your door is completely free. This fab website also operates in Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Philippines, Taiwan and Japan - and it's amazing news that UAE has been added, as I know only too well that gift buying can be difficult as a UAE Mum. There's stuff for Mummies (like my awesome makeup bag), Daddies, Grandparents, Teens, Kids and Babies. It's the stuff of shopping dreams. Have a browse at giftslessordinary.com and @giftslessordinary - and be prepared to love everything you see โค๏ธ #giftslessordinary #dubaimums #dubai #ad

So true story. I was in a queue in a coffee shop yesterday and everyone around me was laughing. Worried I'd got my dress caught in my tights, I started to look around and pat myself down for reassurance - only to be reminded that I had my laptop in this bag by @theunmumsymum. It's just one of the items from the new apparel range by this blogging / social media / author extraordinaire - and if you've ever laughed at her blogs or updates, you'll know that the other motifs are just as good. (sidenote: treats in bag not good enough to bribe my child into wearing a coat in -1'C - I clearly need to up my bribery game).

Today was a big day for our family! My little Dubai-born five-year-old was in his first ever nativity play - and he'd only gone and bagged the part of Joseph. I lasted about 10 seconds before I started blubbing. The very sweetest performance, with his Granny and Grandad, Nanna and Grandad, Auntie Rebecca, Mummy and Daddy all watching him like some kind of Joseph fan club ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป (let's not dwell on the fact he knew so little about the nativity story that when I told him he was going to play Joseph, he shouted out 'is that the baby?' ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ) ______________________________________________________ #childhoodunplugged #candidchildhood #fiercelittleones #clickinmoms #parenting #inspiremyinstagram #seizetheshot #thehappynow #littlestoriesofmylife #momlife #parent #boys #forahappymoment #postitfortheaesthetic #parenthood_unveiled #todaysgoodthing #visualsoflife #liveauthentic #letthembelittle #ukkids #kent #momtogs #momswithcameras #cameramama #kidsforreal #peoplescreatives #visualsoflife #ig_motherhood

I had some lovely one-on-one time with this little man today. Our shipment has arrived from Dubai and we currently have 62 boxes to unpack and find somewhere to pack away (we're seriously lacking on storage after living in houses / apartments where it was all built in). So my little superhero joined me in unpacking at least 10 of them today - starting with the toys! And the cries of 'MUMMY LOOK! ' and 'OH MY GOODNESS MUMMY! LOOK WHAT IT IS!' were just too cute. He hasn't seen most his toys and belongings since July 7th - and discovering them again was the best day ever! __________________________________Colour-in cape by @theenglishbeagle (use code SUZY02 for 20% discount on whole website until 17th Dec)
