💙💚 This weather is just beautiful. I can’t wait to spend more time with nature. Evening walks through natures routes and paddling under the sunshine.

I haven’t seen much of the sunshine this week; I’ve been quite unwell and going to bed early to give myself energy for the next day. I’m hoping it will pass soon, so I can enjoy some sunshine over the weekend.

How has your week been?

🎂 Yesterday we had a very successful family party for Isla’s birthday. 🥳

Isla and I made her watermelon themed cake, we baked scones and a zillion sandwiches. It was so nice to have everyone around, as we haven’t done that for years. I think there was 16 of us in total!

I love decorating the table for an Afternoon Tea. It always looks so pretty. I used the Garden Party in a box from @lucydarlingshop.

All the sandwiches went down a treat. We had cheese, ham, chicken, egg mayo and tuna mayo! I’ve rekindled my love for a cheese & pickle… 

What’s your favourite sandwich?

🌳 I would love to live in the countryside, by vast woodlands & coastal paths. It’s the dream. However, I forget just how much beauty there is just outside my door.

This little woodland, for example, is full of life & only a 30 second walk from my house. I find it calming & I just love taking slow walks through here. Listening to the birds!

I’ve promised myself to get more steps in, and appreciate natures little pockets that I live near. After all, it can only make me appreciate the countryside whenever we do find our dream home.

Do you forget about the pockets of nature near you?

Making memories 🥳

This was Isla’s first family selfie using her birthday present. She loves taking photos and I can see her following in Daddy’s footsteps when she’s older. She’s very creative.

We’ve managed to spread out Isla’s birthday celebrations over an 8 day period. Perfect if you ask me. She’s loved it!

Anyone love taking photos? Of everything? All the time?

And she’s jumping into her birthday like…

💙💗 We had a super fun time at the trampoline park tonight, hot dogs and slushies. Cupcakes and sweets. Then to the park to burn off the sugar high and cool them down a little.

It was lovely to see them all playing and having fun… Isla loved it. I learn so much from her, how to let go and how to have fun. She’s my little ⭐️.

I cannot believe my baby is 10 tomorrow 😭 I want my baby girl back with her diddy feet.

What’s your favourite memory of the newborn stage?

My favourite skies are deep with blue and white fluffy clouds scattered about too. I visualise patterns and shapes in the clouds just for fun… it’s amazing this planet that lives under the sun!

I’m doing my bit to look after the planet; walking where I can, compost, I don’t eat meat or fish, using less water and getting rid of single use plastic.

I want to keep seeing the beautiful views and making cloud patterns and shapes. Do you do that when the sky is full of white fluffy clouds?

With it being my little babies 10th birthday in one week, it’s making me reflect on all the fun adventures and activities we’ve had over the years.

This is one of my favourite photos from April 2015. Isla was not quite 4 here and Noah is 5. They’re soo tiny. I remember Noah trying to explain to Isla what they’d be doing back at the holiday cottage.

They’ve always been very active. In fact I think they were more active when they were younger! 😂

Do you go through photos of your little ones when approaching their birthdays? 💜

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

Family days in photos Week 4 2019

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

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.

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.

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 :)
