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.

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!

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?

What a great #friyay it’s been! We spent the morning “washing” the food shopping, then went for a nice big walk around Godmanchester meadows. It was a beautiful walk and nice as there was a breeze which cooled us down.

Yes, I did say wash the shopping. Is anyone else doing this? I basically Zoflora all of the food shopping as I unpack it. The actual shopping process takes a lot longer and now I’ve added an extra 30 mins with the clean. We just want to be sure it’s not harbouring anything. Peace of mind if nothing else.

Then this afternoon we let the kids have movie time. They’ve been getting too hot in the garden. It is super hot in the garden, it seems to be a little sun trap. Which I’m not complaining about.

Daddy then took the kiddies to the park to play croquet and I had a snooze in the sun.

All in all it’s been a beautiful day and chilled. Probably one of my favourite Fridays.

What did you get up to?

Our Mothers Day adventure in the local park

On Mothers Day we managed to get out in the local park for an hour or so, usually we either rush around the park with the dogs or we go somewhere else. It was nice to just be at the park and be there! No rushing around. We enjoyed the space around us and explored, it was fun and we found some parts of the park that we hadn’t seen before. 

We started off in the open part of the park, the children picked daisies and buttercups, they were being so kind to each other. When getting dressed, Noah said to me “Mummy, do you know why I have a tie on?”. I thought he was going to remark on it being Mothers Day and he wanted to look handsome. It was funny what followed: “Because I am going to be nice to Isla”. I shall have to remind him of that when he is next arguing with her – maybe make him wear the tie. 

If you walk a round the park you come to a few benches to sit and soak up the surroundings. One being a normal park bench and the other cut into a trunk of a tree. It’s a lovely spot, you can sit and listen to the birds whistling and the wind through the leaves – its very relaxing. 

 From there we went to the maze play area that is on the other side of the park, it is nice there as you can sit with the dogs whist the children play and it isn’t fenced off. Unlike some play areas that dogs cannot venture into. It is right on the edge of the woods and we normally stay in the park – but the children had a good idea to explore in the trees. So we did. It was fun…

    Your photos are always so dreamy and pretty. I love the focus you manage and your kids are just so pretty! Bless little Noah with his tie for Mother’s Day, such a sweet gesture. This makes me really miss my own being young, bad language and grunting is all I get these days! Make the most of this stage with your own, it is special.

    Thanks you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

    Just perfect. Love the tie explanation. Now we all know. Great to get outside again. #CountryKids

  • This looks like the perfect way to spend Mothers’ Day and how lovely to find areas of the park that you hadn’t yet explored. I love the photo of you with Noah and Isla and his explanation for why he was wearing a tie made me chuckle 🙂 #countrykids

  • Gorgeous photos! I especially like the black & white ones. It looks like a fun adventure.
