You may remember last month when Bottle Bazaar gave a bottle of their yummy Prosecco away to one lucky winner just in time for Christmas. This time around they are giving away a bottle of Sparkling Rose, with a fun personalised label and it will be just in time for Valentine’s Day.
I adore the beach at Wells-Next-The-Sea, from the carpark with the new Joules hut to the miles and miles of sand. I do not think we have ever been there and had a bad experience, it’s great for the dogs and the children as there is just so much to do and so much space to explore too.
Welcome to 2017’s collection of #SilentSunday photos, today is 22 January 2017. Today’s photo is from a walk with Daddy and the children, it’s so nice to get out and get some fresh air… I love all of the photos that are linked up and I would love to see this grow each week with new people linking up. I also love your comments, so a big thank you to everyone who joined in. Don’t forget to grab the badge and join in below…
In one of my “mindfulness” moments I asked my Uncle if he could share a poem on my blog, he is very creative and I am glad I have someone who I can share creativity with. I have been trying to find more time for me lately, doing the things I love and reading some of my Uncle’s poems really inspires me to start writing again. I downloaded “Headspace” from the App Store this week and I am going to try and start doing a bit of meditation, clear my head before the busy life. Take 10 minutes to think about nothing at all and see what magic sparks from the blank canvas. And what better way to kick off this creative train of thought than with a thought provoking and inspiring poem…
Today started off nice and relaxed, then Isla and I went over to see Great Grandma whilst the boys went to watch their first football match together. Noah loved it, but thought it was too long apparently! Oh dear. I guess it was pretty cold. We ended up eating good food, drinking good wine watching Let is Shine and The Voice. Perfecto.
Sometimes, they are the loveliest to each other. Just sometimes. Then after approximately 10 minutes of this happiness they will squabble, hurt each other and whine “Mummy” to tell me what the other one has done. Am I the only one that has this rather peculiar love/hate relationship between siblings?
We had a nice chilled out “after school” crafting session. We recently received a bundle of crafting goodies from pretty little bows to card packs and we sat and made some cards. Noah made some train cards for his teachers, Isla made some sparkling cards for her teachers and I started making some thank you cards for my birthday presents. It was lovely to sit with them being crafty, listening to Trolls of course!
We love getting out in the fresh air, wellies on and wrapped up nice and warm. Recently The Original Muck Boot Company launched a new range of children’s fun boots: the Hasbro collection. My Little Pony and Transformer boots in lots of small sizes, perfect for Noah and Isla, perfect for little children.
I have so many adventures planned this year already; with a European break and somewhere a little further afield on the horizon, I have officially caught the wanderlust bug. Recently, whilst thinking of all the places I’d like to visit over the next few years, one style of trip that really appeals to me is a cruise after the fun we had last August. Depending on the package, you have the option to see a selection of cities, and when it comes to seeing more of Europe, I think this is a better way than booking individual trips. We loved doing this when we did our cruise. If you’re not convinced, here are my top reasons why:
After school we had the flu vaccination at the doctors for little Isla, then a trip to Cambridge for Noah’s Cambridge United football trials. He was super energetic and put so much energy in. He didn’t stop running. He said all the right things too. Bless him. Isla and I, on the other hand, were not so energetic and froze in the 0 degrees temperatures.
