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.

I’ve included lots of generic words as during lockdown there is quite a variation of photos. I love seeing how each person takes on the photo prompts, some absolutely stunning photos.

Don’t forget to use the hashtag #mummyphotoaday so I can share the photos throughout the month, but so others can find you and like or comment. It really is such a lovely community.

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...

7 fun things to try with your girlfriends one weekend

When was the last time you and your girlfriends got-together? When you’re a busy mum, a fearless career woman or both it’s not always easy to find the time to spend with those you love and appreciate the most. Which is why, you should get together with your girlfriends one weekend, reach out to your friends, call a babysitter and have some fun!

Try something spiritual 

Have you ever considered a psychic reading or visiting a medium? People have sought guidance and advice from those with psychic powers for centuries. So, if you have a burning question, want to reach out to someone who has passed away or you want a little guidance on a particular subject, why not head to a psychic reading? Take part in a spiritual circle or try a reading through Mediumchat, just click the link if you want to find out more.

Enjoy some home-baked treats!

There’s no such thing as calories when you’re cooking up a storm with your best friends in the kitchen. Try your hands at a new baking recipe, get to grips with a new pastry or hone your icing and cake decorating skills. You’ll have loads of fun and get to eat everything you make afterwards, what could be better?

Plan a picnic

Plan a picnic in the park, or somewhere with a fantastic view and get everyone to bring along something for the picnic. You can spend the entire afternoon enjoying the sunshine, or watching the kids play if they come along too.

Hit the gym

Many of us suffer from gym anxiety because we struggle with the idea of going to the gym alone. So, why not bring your friend along? You can figure out the machines together, support and encourage each other too. You might also find it easier to follow to a fitness plan and keep to your fitness regime easier if you have a friend in tow. It’s a great way to spend time together.

Head for a drive

Was there a time when you and your girlfriends would drive around, heading to nowhere in particular and sing-along to your favourite tunes? Why not recreate those epic moments right now? Hit the road, drive around, belt out your favourite tunes and maybe stop for some sweet treats along the way.

Enjoy a glass of wine

Ok, so this one seems self-explanatory, but you don’t need to get dressed up and sit in a crowded bar, shouting over the noise as you try to have a conversation. Invite your friend round for a glass of wine and stick to PJs and slippers instead. You can relax, enjoy a meaningful conversation and laugh until your sides hurt with your girlfriends one weekend. 

Head for afternoon tea

What could be better than dainty little sandwiches and pretty pastries piled high on delicate plates and cute cups filled with coffee and tea? Afternoon tea is a wonderful, girly experience where you can spend quality time together and enjoy a good meal! Bliss. 

When the world gets back to normal these are definitely things to put on my to do list, I think girlfriends time is going to be one of my priorities. I miss their faces already! From planning holidays together or just a simple coffee. I will definitely be getting together with my girlfriends one weekend.
