Oh #lastyear. What fun memories. What happy times. Our last holiday abroad was a year ago, Crete was beautiful. I’ve spent lots of hours during lockdown looking at our photos and remembering our family time together.

It feels like ages ago since we were there. But also it feels like last month! Does anyone else feel like this with things that happened before lockdown?

The past 8 weeks have gone so quickly, it’s quite unbelievable to think we are heading into Summer. The whole of Spring would have been spent in lockdown. But it doesn’t feel like we’ve been doing it for a season.

I can’t wait to go on holiday again. Once Crete opens its gates, I think we’ll head back. Family time with all inclusive. Just the ticket to focus on!

What are you focusing on to get you through this?


Oh #lastyear. What fun memories....

What a lovely chilled #bankholiday we’ve had today. It started with a dog walk, before it got too hot, I love this photo of my babies.

Then we had breakfast in the garden, it was 17 degrees by 9am I think this morning.

I mowed the lawn and cut the edges with my grass scissors 🤣 and set the paddling pool up.

We’ve all spent the afternoon dipping in the pool, playing on the trampoline and even a little bit of crafts.

This evening we carried on our Marvel fest, we’re doing the chronological story order (not the created order) and we’re up to Iron Man. It was brilliant. A great action movie.

I’ve never seen any of the marvels. Until now. I’m so grateful for @disneyplusuk keeping it all in one place!

Have you seen them?


What a lovely chilled #bankholiday...

This evening we had a little family scoot around our town, with a very special mission in mind.

My beautiful friend @gembro82 has started off a very long and colourful snake. The idea is you decorate a rock and add it to the snake. 🐍 Over the past 2 weeks its grown to over 400 rocks.

We loved it. It’s quite moving seeing all of these rocks, #rainbow themed or character themed. It shows just how many children are sitting at home missing their friends and that interaction.

It also demonstrates how we can support each other and work together through these daunting times.

Do you have a #SnakeRock near you? Or, do you have something similar?


This evening we had a...

Would you believe me when I tell you this was this morning? It was. It was directly in-between 2 rather scary looking rain clouds that unleashed their power!

The kiddies didn’t mind. They loved splashing around in the river, despite us warning them the weather would be changing very soon. Thankfully the blustery rain showers were short, albeit powerful.

The kiddies love this spot. They’ve asked to go every single day since they discovered it. I see it being a popular choice over the Summer.

This was taken with my phone. I am completely in #love with the camera on this phone. I love the fact I can take clear, vibrant and detailed photos whenever I have my phone with me.

Have you got a favourite spot that you visit more frequently than before lockdown?


Would you believe me when...

A great way to spend some time whilst waiting for the best delivery of your life! It was fun watching the kiddies play this game; daddy had to find the kiddies on the trampoline. I love how vibrant the colours are in this photo. Especially the #orange opening.

It seems easy but it’s quite disorienting. The kids love it. I love the anticipation of when Daddy will get them!

Our big delivery was our garden furniture. I’ll post some photos when it’s not quite so windy. The wind blew the cushions all over the place this afternoon. Our rather large patio is looking like a cosy spot to spend the summer now!

I’m hoping we’ll get in some chill time this weekend, enjoy our garden and just be safe at home.

What are you up to this weekend?


A great way to spend...

We are very excited to...

I had precisely 30 minutes of sunshine this evening to test out my new iPhone camera. I absolutely love it.

The photos I have taken are stunning. The quality of the colour and the light, the fun angles of the new lens. I took this photo by accident, I adore it.

It’s world #bee day today and when I was taking this photo all of a sudden I noticed 5 or 6 buzzing around me collecting the pollen. 🐝 They fascinate me.

I can see I am going to have a lot of fun with this new phone... Anyone else have any cool tips for the new iPhone?


I had precisely 30 minutes...

It’s Mental Health Awareness Week, this week, and the topic is KINDNESS. Kindness doesn’t cost a thing, but the effects of being kind to someone can have many benefits. I would definitely say cost vs value, value wins every time! 🤣 I think that kindness is more important at the moment as everyone needs that extra lift to make them smile.

Smiling releases hormones, endorphins, which makes us feel happy and also helps to reduce stress. So, it’s a good circle: be kind to someone - make them smile - make yourself feel happy in the process.

On Sunday Hubby showed me kindness when he took the kiddies out for a bike ride and gave me some time on my own. I needed the headspace as I’ve felt frazzled over the last 2 months. He knew that, subconsciously, and knew that taking the kiddies out would make a difference to my day. It did.

I smiled. I painted. I chilled. I felt happier.

In honour of #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek - I want to spread a little kindness in my teeny square part of the world!

Comment on this photo and I will reply to you with kind words, which will hopefully make you smile.

In a world where you can be anything, be kind.


It’s Mental Health Awareness Week,...

What to do with the kids in Mont Tremblant

Planning a summer vacation with kids is no easy process for parents. There is a whole lot to consider when picking the best destination and lodging. If you’ve set your eyes on Mont Tremblant in Quebec, Canada and you’re wondering if there’s enough to keep the kids busy, then you’ll want to read on. Here we’ll take a look at just a few of the activities that will keep the kids happy and entertained, making for a memorable trip.

Enjoy a Round of Mini-Putt as a Family

While the Mont Tremblant area is known for its golf courses, these aren’t exactly ideal as a family activity. Instead, you can check out Le Petit Géant, which is sure to keep everyone entertained. What makes this course extra fun is that it’s a small replica of the actual Le Géant Golf Course. The whole family will feel as though they’re golfing on a professional course, just a small version of it.

Keep in mind this is a seasonal activity that opens mid-May and closes early October.

Alpine Luge – Discover What the Fuss is About

If the kids are looking for adventure, then Skyline Luge is the place to go. This is a unique ride that gives you a sense of what it must be like to be a luge athlete. It is explained as part toboggan and part go-cart, and riders have full control over their steering and braking system. The “ride” features its own track that was created to offer the ultimate in fun and thrills.

The Climbing Tower – Let Them Work Out Their Energy

There’s no better way to let the kids work out their energy than tackling the 30-foot high climbing tower. It doesn’t matter if they’ve climbed before or this is the first time, anyone can enjoy the experience. There are different “paths” laid out on the tower so you can choose the difficulty level.

Horseback Riding – Enjoy the Scenery in a Memorable Way

Likely you will want to take in the scenery of Mont Tremblant, but going on nature walks and hikes isn’t always something that appeals to the kids. If that sounds like your kids then you may want to consider the horseback riding option. You’ll get to take that same scenery, but in a way that is fun for the kids.

Birds of Prey Show – Learn About the Animal Life

Kids tend to enjoy anything animal related, which means the Birds of Prey Show would likely be a huge hit. In this show, kids will learn about various birds of prey, and get to see them first-hand.

Be Sure to Pick the Right Accommodations

The final note has to do with your accommodations while in Mont Tremblant. Obviously you want to pick something that is centrally located so activities are easy to get to, but it also needs to be kid-friendly and offer that extra space that families tend to need. Tremblant Sunstar offers a massive selection of accommodation options, giving you everything you need in order to book in one handy spot.
