We’re jumping into July like…. 🕶

I have lots on the agenda for July,including woodland visits, beach visits and catching up on my uni. I also have a “to read” pile that’s growing! I took my book to Centre Parcs but I didn’t read one sentence 🤦🏼‍♀️

I’m looking forward to seeing all the Summery photos in July and a huge thank you to everyone that joined in with June!

We took a trip to Great Grandmas after school. It was nice to have dinner with her and the kiddies enjoyed exploring at the bottom of the garden.

I love her garden, it backs onto the river. There’s so much to see just standing here. Not to mention grandma’s beautiful garden. That rose bush is just amazing.

I love how the horizon has changed over the years. When I was a child you could see for miles. Over to Shuttleworth where the planes do their air shows.

Now, it’s all overgrown and the trees have gained a lot of height. It’s amazing how much it can change in 39 years!

Do you have a family house that’s been in your life since you were born?

The view from our sofa in the morning is the best. Squirrels, moorhens, ducks, deer and lots of birds… it’s amazing to sit here and watch them.

I love that our garden is full of trees and the lake. It’s meant we’ve seen more wildlife than normal.

We’ve been feeding the deers berries and lots of nuts and seeds for all the other animals. The squirrels are loving the peanuts!

There’s a huge family of geese here too. They have been coming for seed in the evenings.

The squirrels and deer are so tame. We’re quite shocked at how close they get. A squirrel took a peanut from my hand. Made my day!

🦌 I’m so happy; after 10 minutes of being in our lodge the deer popped up in the garden. There was 2 in total. They looked so cute. I loved their V shapes on their noses. They came about a metre close. So tame. 

We’ve made the most out of @centerparcsuk break so far. Table tennis, badminton, Bella Italia and an evening swim in the most amazing pool area ever.

I can’t wait to go in the pool tomorrow. And play more badminton 🏸 (my favourite sport).

So far, outside our back window we’ve seen the 2 deer, lots of ducks, geese, Moorhens and a heron. A few different breeds of geese too.

We also saw a tiny mouse darting all over the woodland floor in search of food. He was very cute. 🐭 

Anyone else love being surrounded by so much nature?

Todays #mummyphotoaday prompt is view. I’d love to see your favourite views! Whether that’s a landscape, person or an object.

This is one of my favourite views on a dog walking route we found near our home. The sky looks like it goes on for miles. The big yellow sun painting everything with its golden glow.

You can just see my fam in the distance walking the dogs. 🐾 

What’s your favourite view?

We made the most of Summer Solstice last night. We took Rambo for a walk and soaked up some sun and fresh air.

It’s the first time we’d all been out together for a dog walk in a long time. It’s really nice as the kids always open up and talk about random things.

I loved the colours in this photo. It was golden hour and I managed to hide the sun behind the bushes. They’re looking into the pond. Not sure Rambo understood the assignment.

Did you make it out for an evening walk?

With Summer Solstice tomorrow it’s got me reminiscing about our last trip abroad and hoping we get some super sun this year too!

I love flying. Sun. Sandy beaches. Adventures in new places. Eating new foods and meeting new people.

My favourite bit is watching the kiddies have fun together with Daddy… 💛

What’s your favourite thing about holidays?

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. VIEW the POST

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.

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

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 9 August 2020. This photo is from our impromptu trip to Cambridge yesterday, we went out for a meal to celebrate Daddy's birthday (this coming Tuesday) and it was so nice. We splashed in the new stream area at Sheep's Green. Its the perfect place to spend a silent Sunday. 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.

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 26 July 2020. We are officially into the Summer Holidays. Woohoo. To celebrate we went to the beach and let our hair down.

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?

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 21 June 2020. Have you enjoyed the thunderstorms this week? We managed to get out and about in amongst the rainclouds. There has been some extremes in weather this week, the garden is certainly happy about it. Lots of beautiful colours popping up! VIEW the POST

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

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 10 May 2020. Today is Isla's 8th birthday and we have a special lockdown party surprise for her. We took this photo on VE Day and I love it, our most recent family photo. I feel so bad that we can't have a family BBQ like we normally do for Isla's birthday but I am sure we can do this later in the Summer. Happy Sunday everyone! VIEW the POST

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 3 May 2020. I loved this photo, on our nature walk, they told me that this tree was a Birch as it had the white bark. Something they’ve learnt from Minecraft. They have learnt a lot from that game. It’s nice seeing things coming to light. Also, it’s exactly 1 week until little Isla’s birthday, I am prepping for a lockdown birthday. Any ideas are welcome…

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 26 April 2020. It has been a glorious week of weather. I have been truly grateful for the opportunity to get out in the garden with the kiddies. We have had a relaxed school week this week, namely because Noah had finished all his core work by Wednesday! So we went on nature hikes, watching nature documentaries and played for hours in the padding pool. What about you? VIEW the POST

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 19 April 2020; the week has flown past. Has it for you?

The kids loved it. This photo was from our bike ride. VIEW the POST

Today is a sad day, but also a happy one full of memories and I love thinking back to how today would have been a big celebration as a family.

Thanks for coming to #SilentSunday on 15 March 2020. I have been totally consumed by BBC News this week. Half of me is worrying so much I can't think about anything else, the other half of me is trying to carry on as normal. But just cleaning and washing my hands a whole lot more than normal. This photo is of a surprise party we arranged for my Mums birthday, it was successful and she was pleasantly surprised! VIEW the POST
