Summer holidays!

The school summer holidays are here and it’s well needed in this house. I have only realised today, now that I feel relaxed sipping tea, how stressed out I have been over the past few weeks.

I think this is mostly due to the heat wave we have had. Not because it’s been ‘too hot’, I really enjoy the heat, but because I spent all of the heat wave digging and moving crushed concrete from the front of the house to the back trying to help hubby sort out an area of the garden so we can have a pool up for the summer holidays.

So I’ve pretty much stressed my self out silly so we can have a more relaxing summer holidays, perhaps it’s the terrifying anticipation that the boys will be at each others throats the whole time that pushed me to get some kind of peacemaker in the garden. They all love water so I guess my theory is this will be a brilliant distraction from the strong desire they have to tear chunks out of each other.

We gave it ago yesterday, you know once the heat wave had past it was clouded over and although sunny a chilly wind was in the air, the boys didn’t seam to even notice they had so much fun and I’m banking on this pool to be my saving grace through the holidays. Of course the great British weather for casts rain later in the week and I’ll be back to playing referee again.



I am a 28 year old mum living in Kent. I am totally outnumbered living with my husband and 3 boys but I love the fun and adventure they bring to my life. As a family we enjoy being active and to get out and about as much as possible. A little about us Me- My husband and I met 12 years ago when I was 16 and him 19. Being so young I don't think either of us expected a nervous first date at the cinema to lead to marriage and 3 children but we soon became inseparable. It can be hard staying 'girlie' in a house full of boys. DS1- DS1 is very sporty. He enjoys football, rugby and swimming but his real passion is motocross. I think hubby would have happily had him on a motocross bike the second he took his first step but he first started to ride when he got his first 50cc bike at 6 years old. Now, aged 8, he rides with complete confidence on his 65cc and is desperate to start competing. As his mother I will always worry about him no mater what he does but seeing how happy this sport makes him makes me want to support him 100%. DS2- DS2 is a real animal lover. He would love nothing more than to have a house full of cats and dogs but unfortunately for him the only pet we have is our goldfish named 'Goldie'. When we visit family who have dogs DS2 will happily sit there for hours talking, stroking and trying to teach them tricks. Computer games is DS2's favourite pass time. He was gifted a tablet for Christmas last year and now, at 6, he has my husband bugging him on tips to get new levels. To keep active DS2 really enjoys swimming. He is not afraid of the water at all and would swim every day given the chance. He has such a loving, caring personality. DS3- DS3 is, well, a real handful as most 2 year olds are. He is never short of energy and zooms everywhere at a million miles an hour on his favourite balance 'motorbike'. Much to my husbands joy DS3 is also obsessed, yes obsessed with motocross. All he wants to do is play motorbikes, wear DS1's helmet and boots at any given chance and watch the videos of DS1 riding. DS3 learns so much from his older brothers and he surprises me everyday with how daring and forward he is in so many ways.
