Happy International Women’s Day
 I’m lucky enough to have grown up with independent & strong women all around me. It’s where I get my resilience & determination from.

It’s something that I want to ensure Isla has too: to be resilient is to have patience and strength. To keep a smile, even if deep down it’s painful. Determination is to have focus and passion. To keep going even if the end is not quite in sight.

I can see a lot of this in her already
 she is far more confident than I ever was at 10 and she knows her own mind. Which I love.

Now I need to make sure she has self confidence, self awareness and self love. So she can endure all that life throws at her and she can listen to her body & mind to guide her. 

I love that I’m still learning things about myself on this motherhood journey: some of those things I’m learning from Isla.

I’m very proud of my baby girl đŸ„°

Get cleaning the air fryer with me
 đŸ§Œ A slightly different post from me tonight: a handy little tip for cleaning your air fryer.⁣
⁣
There’s something about a cleaning tip that makes cleaning that bit đ˜Łđ˜Šđ˜”đ˜”đ˜Šđ˜ł. We use the air fryer everyday, we love it. Keeping it clean is important.⁣
⁣
So: ⁣
⁣
â–Ș add đ—łđ—źđ—¶đ—żđ˜† đ—čđ—¶đ—Ÿđ˜‚đ—¶đ—± to the trays⁣
â–Ș add water to đ—°đ—Œđ˜ƒđ—Č𝗿 the plates inside the tray⁣
â–Ș air fry for 𝟯 đ—șđ—¶đ—»đ˜€âŁ
⁣
If you’ve only been cooking vegetables and things like that then this is đ˜Žđ˜¶đ˜§đ˜§đ˜Șđ˜€đ˜Șđ˜Šđ˜Żđ˜” to clean the trays. Simply rinse and dry. ⁣
⁣
If you’ve cooked meats or food that sticks to the trays, like cheese, then give it a good wash afterwards. The air frying will have helped to release those foods!⁣
⁣
𝗛𝗼𝘃đ—Č đ˜†đ—Œđ˜‚ đ˜đ—żđ—¶đ—Čđ—± đ˜đ—”đ—¶đ˜€ 𝘆đ—Č𝘁?⁣

⁣
I just love it. It’ll be the only flower I can’t actually kill. I either water them too much or not enough
 it makes me quite sad. I have a wisteria not doing so great at the moment, so I need tips!!⁣
⁣
Fun fact: 2 of the 4 plants you can see in this photo are real. đ˜žđ˜©đ˜Șđ˜€đ˜© 𝟾 đ˜„đ˜° đ˜șđ˜°đ˜¶ đ˜”đ˜©đ˜Ș𝘯𝘬 𝘱𝘳𝘩 𝘧𝘱𝘬𝘩? And I gave you a rather big clue in my first paragraph đŸ€ŁâŁ

 it was nice as Isla hadn’t seen it before. We had a lovely snuggly Sunday. ⁣

Isla is so close to her level 6 certificate. She’s been coming on in leaps and bounds over the last few weeks
 her confidence is definitely improving with her @gymfinitykids classes.

Today was awards week for Isla’s class, and I love they they dish out “part way” certificates to those who haven’t quite levelled up yet. Everyone gets a certificate. It’s so lovely.

With my discount code they waive the joining fee, which is £30, so don’t forget to use it when signing up your child to @gymfinitykids

2019 photo challenge February day 25

2019 photo challenge February day 25

Today's keyword for the #mummyphotoaday photo challenge, February day 25, is "calm". Does anyone else find this weather makes you feel #calm? The sun shining down on your face is just perfect and very needed. The first half of this walk, the kids were fine and happy. The second half though they bickered a lot. I’m guessing I’ll need a fair few sunny days to keep my cool and calm. Back to school today and it was all systems go go go... did everyone have a good half term? #mummyphotoaday VIEW the POST

This week has been a bit calmer, but we had our besties over for the weekend and we got so many things done in the house. It was so productive. We got out and had a nice walk with the children and dogs too. It was nice to make the most out of the weather. Coming home to Daddies roast dinner was a delight too! VIEW the POST

This week has been another busy one, but things are definitely calming down as it was last week. The most exciting thing to happen was that little Isla lost her very first tooth. She was so excited about the tooth fairy coming last night. It was very cute. VIEW the POST

I feel like there has been a whirlwind of things going on in the first few weeks that now I am not sure what to do with myself. I feel bad for coming home in the evening and chilling on the sofa. It feels weird not having to strip walls, paint or move furniture around. Things have started to slow down. VIEW the POST

Week 2 has been incredibly busy, as you have all seen. I had my 36th birthday, the kiddies went back to school and things started to get back to normal - up until we moved house that is. VIEW the POST

We've had a busy week 1 of 2019. It all started off in Suffolk, where we spent New Years Eve and it was a nice rested New Years Day indeedie. The doggies love their new beds, The Ellen Bed, they do not want to get out of them! This is our week... VIEW the POST

Monday 31 December 2018

This is my last 365 post as next year I am going to be doing weekly posts instead. I have enjoyed posting everyday for the past few years but with other commitments I think weekly will be more manageable… It’s been a difficult year and I am glad we have got through it. I hope everyone has a fantastic 2019. What a way to finish off the year too – my highest listing in Tots100 at number 44. Thank you for everyone that has commented and read my articles. I am really grateful! 🙂

It was nice to relax at Nanny and Grandads today. Nanny cooked a yummy dinner and we all nearly fell asleep from that lovely full up feeling. It's been a busy couple of weeks and having a time out was just what we needed.

Saturday 29 December 2018

We've had a chilled day today. The only day we have had to ourselves. We've been building, sorting and playing. We spent the evening playing Noah's new game: Mario Monopoly and it was fun. Noah did have 3 strops and quit once, but seemed rather pleased with himself when he won!

So today it happened: after 6 weeks of having the Christmas decorations up I took them down! The living room now looks bare. But Isla had fun chilling out and watching YouTube whilst I de-Christmas'd the house. Can you spot her hiding? :)

We had another fabulous family day today. We spent the morning cleaning and sorting the house and it felt really good to sort toys, get rid of rubbish and donate some toys to charity too. We then played games and had a fun afternoon at Great Grandmas.

Monday 24 December 2018

We had a nice day: we dropped off presents Great Nanny and then went for Christmas drinks at Nanna's. It was nice to see everyone before the storm starts tomorrow. I then cleaned the house, quickly, getting ready for our Christmas visitors. We had a full house for Christmas.

Sunday 23 December 2018

Our plans changed today, we couldn't go and visit our friends due to a potential sickness bug. Boo. We took the opportunity to have a good sort out of our stuff and make room for Christmas 2018. I found a lot of toys too, so Isla and I had fun playing with them.

We had a quiet day today, Isla was up all night with a horrible cough. So we kept her wrapped up in the warm and Daddy made the Vegan Gravy for Christmas Dinner. Its the Jamie Oliver recipe and THE most delicious gravy I have ever tasted - not one bit of animal product either. So great for everyone. We then went to some friends for dinner which was lovely... :)

Hubby has started prepping for Christmas Day dinner, he is using our new food saver device which keeps food fresh in vacuum packed bags. He's also filling up some mason jars with yummy goodness too. He has made the most delicious cranberry sauce with apples. We can't wait for our Christmas meal!

I promised someone pink hair for Christmas, so we did it. It's just a semi-permanent colour so it will wash out. She looks super cute and she really loves it. I love this little lady albeit she is hard work at the moment!

I love this photo. Snoopy's little head peeping to the side and Rambo looking  extremely comfortable. These new doggy beds are just amazing. The animals love them and all three of them share. It's like musical dog beds!

Today we did a lot of sorting in the morning, whilst waiting for Daddy to come back home. Noah has been practising making cups of tea, he has a list of things to tackle for Cubs and making a cup of tea is one of them. I am making sure to show him how I like it best haha :)
