This is for yesterday’s prompt, I left my square black yesterday and so this is my Day 2 of the June Photo Challenge.

These guys always make me #smile. They have the ability to make me feel so very angry and then laugh only 5 minutes later. I’m glad they don’t hold a grudge or stay angry for too long.

I remember this moment well, they were giggling about the dogs. The dogs wandered around them chewing on the grass and Snoopy (our blind dog) nearly head butted Isla.

I love the bond they have developed over the past few months, with each other and the pets too. I’m not saying they love all day long (they bicker) but it’s not as much as they used to and it’s definitely determined by the amount of sleep they get.

Anyone else struggling to get their kids asleep but 10pm? I think Noah came down, in protest, 8 times last night to say he couldn’t sleep.

🌾 I adore this photo! Not sure what it is exactly: the colours, the wonky lines, the sun setting to the right or the children’s freedom. Or, all of it put together.

This was an ordinary moment captured on our dog walk, Sunday evening. It’s little moments like this, the accidental captures, that I love the most.

I had no idea at the time of taking it that I’d love it as much as I do. I can hear the #kiddies giggling and it makes me want to smile.

Well, it’s a late post. But I didn’t finish work until 10:30pm ish & I’ve been winding down.

I hope everyone had a lovely day.


🌾 I adore this photo!...

Happy June everyone and here are the photo prompts for #mummyphotoaday, June photo challenge.

My favourite pics from May...

We went out with a bang for May! We had a day of socially distancing with #family.

Today is Nanny’s birthday, so we watched her open her presents on the driveway, with a good few metres distance. It was horrible not to be able to celebrate the day with her as we always do. We know we will soon and hopefully they can come and spend time in the garden with us soon, due to the new rules.

The kiddies get super sad when we leave families. It’s not nice but I think they understand why we can’t see them properly. Albeit they do not like it!

To cheer us up we played diggers in the fields surrounding my Mums new barn renovation project. No worries about socially distancing over there it is literally fields and fields. The kids loved zooming up and down on the dumper. I think it’s called.

Then we knocked on Great Grandma’s door to blow her a kiss and let her see the kiddies for a few minutes. It’s just so hard.

But, it was so lovely to see family today. Even if from afar and for a short time. We haven’t seen them in the flesh for around a month and it felt so nice.

Here’s to June and another month of lockdown. We’ve still got this!


We went out with a...

Yeah for the #weekend!! It seems to be the only time where tensions aren’t high and there is a calm amongst us.

We have no grand plans, obviously, but we do tend to get the dogs walked first thing (as it’s too hot later on) and then we do some gardening.

Yesterday I spent an hour pulling all the weeds and long grasses from the front garden. It looks so much neater now but I still have a lot of work to do.

I love this photo of us of all, we do not have many as we never sit still long enough 🤪 This is our family lockdown portrait though and it’s a nice memory: sunny days, rainbows and quality time together at home.

Do you have any special memories throughout this lockdown?


Yeah for the #weekend!! It...

What a great #friyay it’s been! We spent the morning “washing” the food shopping, then went for a nice big walk around Godmanchester meadows. It was a beautiful walk and nice as there was a breeze which cooled us down.

Yes, I did say wash the shopping. Is anyone else doing this? I basically Zoflora all of the food shopping as I unpack it. The actual shopping process takes a lot longer and now I’ve added an extra 30 mins with the clean. We just want to be sure it’s not harbouring anything. Peace of mind if nothing else.

Then this afternoon we let the kids have movie time. They’ve been getting too hot in the garden. It is super hot in the garden, it seems to be a little sun trap. Which I’m not complaining about.

Daddy then took the kiddies to the park to play croquet and I had a snooze in the sun.

All in all it’s been a beautiful day and chilled. Probably one of my favourite Fridays.

What did you get up to?


What a great #friyay it’s...

5 Clever ways to use the holiday season to build brand loyalty

The internet presents customers with so many options, making it hard for them to remain loyal to one brand over time. However, millennials have turned out to be one of the most brand-loyal generations. Win the love of these faithful customers this holiday season by using the following tips.

Promote selectively

Cut through the clutter of gift options for your company by creating the best promotional products. Use these products at trade shows, holiday parties, in-store giveaways, and social media competitions. Another group of people with whom you want to encourage loyalty is your employees. Give them something as simple as a coffee mug that is both functional and sleek. Small gifts that represent the versatility of your company are always a good idea.

Value customer experience

When it comes to buying a service or a product, the customer’s experience should always be a priority. Make it memorable in all the right ways, and they’ll be back. Even negative experiences can be worked to your advantage if you make the customer feel heard and understood. Go above and beyond to resolve the issue, and you can inspire more brand loyalty. 

One important customer exchange is when a product has been returned or when a service doesn’t meet expectations. Take time to train your employees on how to handle the extra stress this holiday season, so they are prepared to curate an above-average customer experience. 

Reap the rewards

You can also inspire customer loyalty by offering a sweet rewards program. Your younger customer base is more likely to choose your brand over another simply because of the added bonus of a rewards program. 

For smaller businesses, this can be as simple as a punch card for visits that add up to a free or discounted purchase. Larger companies can offer rewards like earning cashback for purchases or coupons after a certain dollar level is achieved.

Celebrate the season

Choosing to highlight your company values this time of year is a more intimate way to express your gratitude for brand loyalty. You can do this by throwing an annual holiday event that returning clients can attend or a special gala for employees. 

These events are often done at other times of the year, but by doing them during the holidays, you can reinforce your brand while making everyone feel more like family. A special event like this shows you are committed to serving the needs of your client through attentiveness, thoughtfulness, and honest appreciation.

Test the holidays

The holidays are an ideal time to test new consumer marketing campaigns. You can learn what is working and what isn’t when it comes to engaging customers. So many advertisements and marketable avenues are already accessible to your customers this time of the year. 

So, it’s worth optimizing your marketing campaigns by focusing on the staples of your brand. Rework the way you present these to target the new audience you are trying to reach. People are already shopping more this time of the year. You can benefit from this market by creating customizable campaigns that show off new rewards programs or your newest design.

This holiday season, don’t sit back and waste valuable time while other businesses are vying for the attention of your customers. Instead, offer something unique and designed just for your target audience. By making the experience of connecting with your brand as important as the products or services you sell, you can reinforce loyalty this Christmas and create return customers.
