I took this photo the other evening; the kiddies wanted to wait for a train to go past and so we sat and waited.

Whilst I checked the train times, they sat there talking and giggling. I captured this moment. It was so lovely. Look how #sweet her body language is. His too.

I love watching them when they have their talks. Every morning when we walk the dogs they walk ahead, or behind, doing the same thing. They chatter about lots of random topics or plan out the Minecraft house they are going to build next.

It’s been a long day and when I see photos like this, of the better days, it reminds me why I need to keep going and getting through the tough times.

My babies. 💛💙 #mummyphotoaday

I took this photo the...

This is for yesterday’s prompt, I left my square black yesterday and so this is my Day 2 of the June Photo Challenge.

These guys always make me #smile. They have the ability to make me feel so very angry and then laugh only 5 minutes later. I’m glad they don’t hold a grudge or stay angry for too long.

I remember this moment well, they were giggling about the dogs. The dogs wandered around them chewing on the grass and Snoopy (our blind dog) nearly head butted Isla.

I love the bond they have developed over the past few months, with each other and the pets too. I’m not saying they love all day long (they bicker) but it’s not as much as they used to and it’s definitely determined by the amount of sleep they get.

Anyone else struggling to get their kids asleep but 10pm? I think Noah came down, in protest, 8 times last night to say he couldn’t sleep.

🌾 I adore this photo! Not sure what it is exactly: the colours, the wonky lines, the sun setting to the right or the children’s freedom. Or, all of it put together.

This was an ordinary moment captured on our dog walk, Sunday evening. It’s little moments like this, the accidental captures, that I love the most.

I had no idea at the time of taking it that I’d love it as much as I do. I can hear the #kiddies giggling and it makes me want to smile.

Well, it’s a late post. But I didn’t finish work until 10:30pm ish & I’ve been winding down.

I hope everyone had a lovely day.

Happy June everyone and here are the photo prompts for #mummyphotoaday, June photo challenge.

My favourite pics from May...

We went out with a bang for May! We had a day of socially distancing with #family.

Today is Nanny’s birthday, so we watched her open her presents on the driveway, with a good few metres distance. It was horrible not to be able to celebrate the day with her as we always do. We know we will soon and hopefully they can come and spend time in the garden with us soon, due to the new rules.

The kiddies get super sad when we leave families. It’s not nice but I think they understand why we can’t see them properly. Albeit they do not like it!

To cheer us up we played diggers in the fields surrounding my Mums new barn renovation project. No worries about socially distancing over there it is literally fields and fields. The kids loved zooming up and down on the dumper. I think it’s called.

Then we knocked on Great Grandma’s door to blow her a kiss and let her see the kiddies for a few minutes. It’s just so hard.

But, it was so lovely to see family today. Even if from afar and for a short time. We haven’t seen them in the flesh for around a month and it felt so nice.

Here’s to June and another month of lockdown. We’ve still got this!

#mummyphotoaday

We went out with a...

Yeah for the #weekend!! It seems to be the only time where tensions aren’t high and there is a calm amongst us.

We have no grand plans, obviously, but we do tend to get the dogs walked first thing (as it’s too hot later on) and then we do some gardening.

Yesterday I spent an hour pulling all the weeds and long grasses from the front garden. It looks so much neater now but I still have a lot of work to do.

I love this photo of us of all, we do not have many as we never sit still long enough 🤪 This is our family lockdown portrait though and it’s a nice memory: sunny days, rainbows and quality time together at home.

Do you have any special memories throughout this lockdown?

Day 7 of #12DaysofConstantChristmas Ginger Fox

  • ​Who Wants To Be Millionaire £10.50
  • Dough Nab £14.99
  • Canine Chaos Card Game £7.99 along with Celebri-Dogs Mug £7.99
  • Corks £14.99
Ginger Fox Bundle

Who wants to be a millionaire?

I loved Who wants to be a millionaire? when I was younger, this card game looks amazing. It’s like the TV show, however, you get 4 lifelines and you need good general knowledge.

Dough Nab

This looks like great fun – I love games that have a little role play involved. Dough Nab is a fun snap style game, but when you see a match in the cards you must grab the corresponding coloured doughnut. What a lot of fun for Christmas with the family?

Canine Chaos card game

The Canine Chaos card game is a fun game that enables you to claim your way to victory by collecting the sets. There are 25 celebrity canines included. Ginger Fox is giving a Celebrity Dogs Mug with the prize too. A perfect companion.

Corks

We love Corks, it’s a fun game where you have to be the first to collect a set of cards and grab a cork. Once the first player grabs a cork, the rest of the players have seconds to grab their cork. Its a fast game of elimination, again, perfect for Christmas.

How do I win?

There will be 1 lucky winner that will win the bundle of items listed above. All you need to do is enter via the competition window below:

Day 7 #12DaysofConstantChristmas (24 hour comp)

This competition closes at 23:59 Wednesday 18th December 2019, winners will be announced in the competition window above and will be emailed directly.
