An easy beginners guide for happy flying a drone in the UK

An easy beginners guide for happy flying a drone in the UK

I have had a lot of questions about the drone, what one I have and what I had to do to be able to fly it safely. So, I thought I would document the process I went through incase some of you are thinking about taking up this hobby for yourself. I love photography and being able to get creative with aerial photos and videos really excites me. I got the drone as a birthday gift from my husband and kiddies, I am very grateful. VIEW the POST

Silent Sunday photography challenge: 20 September 2020 #SilentSunday

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 20 September 2020. We have had an odd week, it should have been the kids first full week back at school and Isla fell sick. So, she had 2 days at home. Thankfully by the end of the week, everyone was OK. We made the most of our day together yesterday and went out on the river; Daddy and Isla on the Paddleboard, Noah in a kayak and Mummy in a kayak. It was good fun. VIEW the POST

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 13 September 2020. I had a little break from this over the past couple of weeks but we are back, just as the kids have gone back to school. How has everyone found the transition? This photo is from last Sunday when we took a visit to Norfolk to celebrate the end of the Summer Holidays. We had a lovely day.

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 23 August 2020. This week the grown ups have been back to work, albeit at home still, and the children have been at Summer Camp - dance and sports all week. They have loved it. We usually use around 4-5 weeks of camps at Summer but this year only had the option to use 2 weeks (due to COVID-19). The next 2 weeks we have to juggle kids and work, like homeschooling without the homeschooling. Wish us luck. VIEW the POST

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 16 August 2020. We have had a lovely week off together as a family; we explored around the Peak District and had some well earned chill time at the end of the week too. Ready to tackle the last few weeks of the Summer Holidays and then a new normal with Back to School. It's been nice to wind down. VIEW the POST

2 August 2020 #SilentSunday

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 2 August 2020. We have enjoyed the first week of the Summer Holidays as the kiddies went to Summer camp. It wasn't the same, as there was a lot of measures in place for keeping distance and ensuring the kids are well. However, the kiddies still had fun. We also had a fun beach trip to kick off the Summer and it was nice to feel the breeze and the sand between our toes. VIEW the POST

August photo challenge 2020 #MummyPhotoADay

Welcome to the August photo challenge 2020 and a big thank you for everyone that joined in in July. The photos were fantastic last month: beautiful blue skies, great big fluffy white clouds and lots and lots of outdoor fun. It was nice to see people venturing a little further afield and making it outside of their gardens. August photo prompts are a collection of ideas from the community, it was nice to include everyone's ideas. VIEW the POST

19 July 2020 #SilentSunday

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 19 July 2020. I am truly sorry that I missed last weekend, as some of you may have seen I spent the night in hospital with Noah and therefore didn't have time or any signal in order to make the post. Serves me right for not scheduling it up. This photo is from one of our dog walks this week, thankfully Noah's pains cleared up quite quickly. VIEW the POST

5 July 2020 #SilentSunday

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 5 July 2020. We have had a nice few weeks. Not much has changed for us, we are still distancing and still only really socialising with our household. We have seen a couple of people, grandparents and a coupe of friends, distanced, but other than that we are just us. We had a nice trip to the beach, it was pretty empty and the fresh air was perfect. What have you been doing? VIEW the POST

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 28 June 2020. The last Sunday of June 2020, another month done in lockdown! This week we have had another lockdown birthday in the family and the kiddies have had 2 trips to the beach. Once on the hot day and once on the rainy day. I love their sense of adventure.

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 14 June 2020. What a week for weather?! It has been like Winter and Summer all wrapped up into one this week. I guess this is why we love the UK so much - always keeping us on our toes. We have been watching Marvel movies when it's raining and playing outside when it's sunny. VIEW the POST

7 June 2020 #SilentSunday

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 7 June 2020. We haven't changed much in our lockdown routine, we haven't driven to far away places (much as we would love to) and we haven't gone for days out anywhere. We are still at home, enjoying the garden and walks that are nearby. I am still a bit anxious to go in a place where there will be a large amount of people. This week we have been for a walk with Nanny & Grandad and my Mumma came over to help me with the roses in the garden. Which has been just lovely. What have you been up to? VIEW the POST

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 31 May 2020. We have made it through May during lockdown. Another month in these very unusual circumstances. I am hopeful that by the end of July that things will start to be a little more normal. It would be nice to let the children hug their grandparents again. What do you think? VIEW the POST

24 May 2020 #SilentSunday

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 24 May 2020. What a tropical weekend it has been so far? We went for a walk yesterday morning and it was definitely a 4 Seasons in one Day kind of day! (Yes, I love Crowded House). We haven’t really managed to spend a lot of time on our new furniture yet due to the high winds. Hoping to have a nice photo for you next weekend. This one was from our walk.

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 17 May 2020. This photo was from our dog walk yesterday. Daddy went on the kayak and met us at the rivers edge for a picnic, then we walked alongside the river back home. Daddy is super fast in the kayak, the kiddies had to run to keep up! I just love this photo, the sky looks pretty and the colours of nature look fantastic too. VIEW the POST
