The views yesterday were absolutely stunning. Woolacoombe you didn’t disappoint. 

The sea was so calm, which I loved but the kiddies wanted waves to bodyboard through. I actually went in the sea. It was quite warm in the shallows.

As the sun reached near its setting place the reflection on the sea was mesmerising. I could have sat there all evening.

More beach days please 🙏🏻 Have you been to the beach this Summer?

My sunset views. The entire day spent travelling was totally worth it. Fresh sea air in my lungs…

It’s not quite the Devonshire coast, but it’s not bad for on my doorstep. Whilst Hubby has been in the sea all day with the kids, we’ve been chilling in the evening sun.

It was nice in the park as it’s soo open. The breeze cooled us down. I sat there with the dogs & it felt like we were on our own in the park. No one around. So peaceful.

Did you get out in the sun today?

When Hubby sends you a photo of your babies washing up… Isla cooked them dinner and cleaned up afterwards too. I’m impressed.

It’s lovely that they are starting to get more involved. They’re so grown up. And they look super happy too!

How to encourage a child to love learning

How to encourage a child to love learning

Finding enjoyment in learning can make life more interesting and open up more opportunities. Not everyone loves learning about everything, but many people have a passion for learning about certain things. Some people might like learning about everything there is to learn, while others might enjoy learning certain types of skills or specific areas of study. If you can encourage your child to love learning, they can grow up with a curious and open approach to the world around them. But how can you foster a love of learning in children so they want to keep learning outside of school? VIEW the POST

I have been reflecting on when the kiddies were babies a lot lately. A combination of them seemingly as tall as me and lots of people I know are having or have recently had babies.

Everything you need to know about World Book Day 2022

Everything you need to know about World Book Day 2022

World Book Day 2022 takes place on March 3rd, and it’s bound to be a special one. World Book Day was established in 1995, but was first celebrated in the UK and Ireland in 1997, making this year the 25th anniversary of the iconic event. Many schools and nurseries celebrate World Book Day as a way to encourage children to develop their reading skills, and discover the joys it can bring. For adults, World Book Day can mean dreaded costumes and time-consuming activities, but the beauty of the day is that it has the power to reignite your passion for reading, and help you reminisce on your childhood favourites, too.

Spending time with your family is pretty important to help you de-stress and remind you of the close bond you share with your loved ones.

With each new year comes a renewed sense for many of us to look at ourselves and ask how we can be better.
