🌳 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? 💜

Our Sunday looked a lot like this. A lovely dog walk in the woods and beautiful villages. Chocolate box cottages and wild animals everywhere.

We even saw low flying planes at the Shuttleworth Air Show. It was amazing.

3 generations out on our walk today; Nanna, me, my sister & Isla. There was also 3 generations of doggy!

We had a quick pub stop for a drink and back to Nanna’s for a yummy roast dinner.

I love walking. I wish I could walk and explore all day everyday. Fresh air and beautiful scenery!

How did you spend your Sunday?

Why starting a business isn’t as scary as you think

It’s true to say that while many people have at least given passing thought to starting and running a business, not everyone believes that they have the capacity to do so, at least for the time being. After all, starting an operation of any size is a financial risk on your behalf, as taking a loan to get started, or putting in money from your savings or equity can mean you’re taking a gamble, making long term obligations for the chance of long term success.

How braces can improve your dental health

How braces can improve your dental health

When it comes to dental difficulties, orthodontic braces might be advised for a variety of reasons. An extensive range of benefits is provided by this unique tooth straightening technique, which may be used to fix crooked and gapped teeth, as well as to cure discolouration and chipping.
