Today has been exhausting which is odd in a way as Cora slept all day, only awake for about 2 hours in total and Archie and Finn spent the day on the sofa under blankets. Cora was up every 4 hours sobbing for Calpol, Archie was up twice in the night for medicine and there was a game of musical beds as these feverishly hot children wanted cuddles. Nothing makes you feel more needed as a parent as having an ill child and having three means my lap is constantly full. In a way I love the purpose but I hate seeing them poorly of course and I will be glad to see my bed tonight (and the surprise of how many children will join me in it!). I hope you are all much healthier
We are painting a red cross on the front door, the lurgy has hit. One is still recovering and two are feverish. If I go quiet you know I have caught it too . . .
We have finally got the Christmas clothes back out and these tops were Dylan and Archie's once upon a time. I bought them four years ago and they are still going strong. They are from one of our favourite brands, @maxomorra_official who are celebrating 10 years of making awesome organic kids clothes with a gift range including these memory cards (gifted) which we are having so much fun with! It has been a mostly indoorsy weekend for us and Finn is poorly today so a very quiet day for him and toys like these are perfect!

How was your Sunday?

Finn and Cora are so happy to be reunited. The big two say they missed us but I am not entirely sure they noticed that we were gone! Everyone is a bit tired this weekend after all the excitement of the Christmas Countdown so we have had a quiet (well quiet-ish, there are still six people in the house) day just playing at home with a little trip down to the seafront to see all the boats in the harbour with their Christmas lights on. Tonight's plans involve take away, Grey's anatomy and going through the photos I took in Budapest. How about you?
Cora and I are back home with our boys after an amazing girls trip to Budapest. We loved our little adventure and it is quite possibly the most beautiful city I have ever been to.  I was worried about being alone for 3 days with her as I am so used to adult company but she was a brilliant companion, offering hilarious insights into the way she views the world and giving the best cuddles. She loved having some time with just me, not having to fight for my attention but she was so happy to see her brothers this morning too!
I asked someone to take a picture of Cora and I and they literally did just that - took one which means I am mid blink on my Instagram picture tonight! This afternoon we visited one of Budapest's thermal baths and it was amazing! As well as several indoor pools all varying in temperature there were these outdoor ones (swipe to see more) that were 34 degrees and lit up with colour changing bulbs. It was high on my list of things to do in Budapest and it was totally worth it! 
There are several others around the city and I am tempted to see if we can squeeze in another one before our flight home!
Hello from Hungary! Cora and I flew out here yesterday afternoon for a little getaway and we have spent today exploring Budapest on foot. It is such an extraordinary city and so beautiful at night too. We have wandered around the Christmas markets, eaten chimney cake, walked over the river Danube and taken in lots of the sites and now we are snuggled up in bed with Blaze on the tab, completely exhausted. 
What do you love most about visiting a new city?
I don't think I will ever get used to having photos taken of just me, without any children to hide behind. I have always been much more comfortable the other side of the camera.

But here I am and it is December now so I want to know what YOU are hoping for this Christmas? I would love a lie in and some new socks.
It was the Infant school's Christmas fair today and I was in charge of the cake stall which meant I got first pick on the goodies! It also meant I have been super busy all day and have come home exhausted and ready to put on my new Original Factory Shop PJ's! For every set sold, they will be donating £2 to @makeawishuk too. It is definitely an early night and comfy jammies evening to end November!

I spent the night at the History Museum with Dylan earlier this month and today it was Archie's turn to have some one on one time. I took him out of school a little early so we could head up to London to check out the Avengers Station at Excel that we had been gifted some tickets for. We loved the exhibit and it is so nice having time with just him, listening to his philosophies on life. 
We are snuggled up on the train home now but it has been so nice spending time with just Archie.
These two are absolutely loving borrowing a dog to walk. They both hold a lead and chat away as they walk. This week they wore awesome outfits from @tinonokids and Cora loved that her dress had a little pocket to store a doggy bag. I am tempted to pinch one of the scarfs for me as they are super soft!
